THE INTER-HOUSE SHIELD [Iif Inter-House Shield, presented by Mrs. Wynne Robinson, was won aht year by Ross House. [15] IT was not a long time ago, when both magazines and newspapers had a declared war with their readers concerning the man of the mid-century. Who would it be? Truman, Einstein, Stalin or Churchill? . . . everybody had someone to suggest. The letters to tlie editors were numerous until the ciioice was made. Churchill became the man of the mid-century, in more than one magazine. 19.50 came, the subject was dropped, and no further comment was made. But who is the man who would accept such a conclusion? Wlio would overlook the mass of the people, who created and destroyed so as to make those fifty years the most tragic and yet the most admirable in history? Our age has been accused of several things at different times, but one statement that seems to repeat itself is that our world is a negative world and consequently a world of decline. Declining it may be, for those who were born in the late nineteenth century and, for one reason or another, have not witnessed from near enough, nor with the right understanding, the dawn and development of this new era. Unfortunately, these people are not the only ones who look upon social changes as dangerous to man. A great majority of these are this era ' s children: people who refuse to understand that our age ' s heritage is from the people, through the people, to the people. If we were ever asked to state the outstanding power of our age, we would undoubtedly find it behind governmental laws and factory walls. In both key places stands the mass of the people, powerful, unbreakable, resembling a rocky mountain, unshattered by wind or rain. [16] There is something monstrously beautiful about it. Huge, emotional and beginning to be more than ever aware of its power, it totters as a giant child, in order to stabilize itself in a new and unknown world. Anyone would agree that, when something becomes powerful, it does not succeed and is not able to exist by itself. Thousands of factors, powerful in their own way, must surround or compose that certain object. In the same way, the mass of the people is composed of individuals, each exercising a diflferent influence in his own sphere and as a whole representing a leading unit. More than ever before, our century, overlooking class, race, and creed, has given to every man the opportunity and right to do something for himself. Any successful outcome of this may not be kept by an individual or a group of somewhat privileged people, but is used for the benefit of the majority. ) Having thus taken the greatest step towards stabilizing their position, the twentieth century masses are the life and spirit of all endeavours, and their aim is to be able " to do the little things, for from the little things are built the great things " . MADEMOISELLE JUGE Five years ago, we paid tribute, in " Trafalgar Echoes " , to Mademoiselle Juge in honour of her tiventy-five years of service on the teaching staff. Aoic, after almost thirty-one years, Trafalgar is bidding her farewell. During nil this time Mademoiselle Juge has been a devoted and inspiring teacher, and hrr many pupils, both past and present, must recognize the great contribu- tion sill- has m ' ulf lo their liberal education. Although we deeply regret losing her. }( ■ fire glad i think that she trill now have leisure to enjoy the exercise oj her many and varied talents in the congenial atmosphere of her beloved I- ranee. One and all, u e wish her a long and happy life. [17| THE HAND THE liand on Iier wrist was firm, but pentle, anrl tlic voice slie liearrl far away was soothing. As she fought lier way through the mist to conscious- ness, she reahzed she was in a hospital, and knew the hand was that of a doctor. How strong and comforting it was, and what miracles those hands could jierform ! They could save lives, make scars unnoticeable, and inspire great confidence and hope. The cool hand on her head must be that of a nurse. Then her thoughts drifted to another hand — the one she loved best. These hands had slim tapering fingers ending in nails like polished jewels. They were small, smooth and soothing, with the faint fragrance of gardenias, and could do such wonderful things. When running over the keys of a piano, these fingers had the power to transport one to an Utopia of mystery and haunting melody, or of gay, swi rling dancers. They could take thread and transform it into lace as delicate as Arachne ' s, and could paint the loveliest scenes. Such comfort and love were in those hands when they lightly touched someone in sorrow or pain. How slender and dainty they looked, folded in her lap, arranging flowers, or holding a fragile glass. Then there flashed into her mind another picture. This hand was large and rough from hard work. There were callouses on the thumbs, and the fingers were eaten away by the pricks of a needle. She sighed to think that this hand, which could also be so loving and kind, was not so beautiful as the first, for she loved it almost as well. Once again a hand appeared to her — small and chubby. How soft and dimply it was! With what confidence it clung to her finger, and how little it hurt when it hit her or tangled in her hair. The next hand which danced before her was small too, but grimy, with broken nails. It hurt when it pulled her hair, and although she was really very fond of it, there were times when she would gladly have broken it. [18] Finally there was the hand of a man. It was large, but how gentle it could be. Of course, wlien she was naughty, it could hurt, but more often there was hidden in it a small present for her. What fun it was to be picked up and tossed in the air by those strong, brown hands! Suddenly they all appeared before her. The small white ones and the large brown ones held her tenderly, the chubby ones tangled in her hair, and the small grubby ones for once did not hurt as they clung to her arm. All at once there was a loud crash, and above her she saw a tremendous black hand. The hands on her let go and vanished into mist. She was picked up by the forbidding hand, and, as it bore her up into the darkness, she felt she wovild never again see the other hands she loved so well. Judy Vkooman, Form Arts VI, Barclay House. EXAMS ' Twas the night ere exam day, and all through my head, Everything was so muddled, that when I went to bed, All I dreamed of was Latin, and theorems, and stuff. In hopes that these horrors would not be too tough. I prayed that by morning my head would be clear, But all my hopes dwindled, as that time drew near. At last, to my sorrow, the dreaded morn came, And I rose from my bed in a very bad frame. As I entered the school with a feeling of woe, I ' m sure I forgot everything I did know. It ' s now one o ' clock, and this session is o ' er. But, oh, for tomorrow, when we ' ll have two more! Margaret Sparks, Form IVb. Ross House. IT HAPPENED AGAIN MK. AIVl ' HONY sat frowning on the doorstep of the apartment building, liis chin in his hands, and his bespectacled eyes staring unhappily into the bhie. All around him, people were tripping to and fro: gaily bedecked matrons with squealing babies, stout, bearded gentlemen tapping their canes importantly on the sidewalk, whistling newsboys shuffling along, and busy housewives bustling here and there, their arms filled with bundles. Mr. Anthony sat moodily on the steps. It had happened again! He had been, or rather, was about to be, evicted from his small three-roomed apartment. Ah, yes, this was a common occurrence, with the same complaint every time — mice! Mr. Anthony had a passion for white mice, and kept thirty-three in a large cage under his bed. Many people thought Mr. Anthony eccentric, but indeed he was far from it. He was just a gentle old man who loved bacon and eggs for breakfast, and went to visit his relatives at Christmas time. Although they (lichrt encourage his hobby, (the mice had to be boarded, at those times, at ilhirds ' , a reliable pet shop ) they never said anything unpleasant about the subject, as they were not really interested in mice or Mr. Anthony. [19] Mr. Anthony lived cautiously, that is, he was careful about spending money, but he hated going to the bother of hunting a new apartment. His thoughts were therefore troubled as he watched the passers-by, and his gentle mind was stirred up against the wealthy Widow Atcherby, who, with honourable intentions, had tripped to his rooms that morning, and had entered the living-room, intending, as she discovered his absence, to wait for him. Unfortunately, no one except Mr. Anthony had known that the mice were having their morning stroll, and as a result, the other occupants of the building had seen a wonderful spectacle — that of Widow Atcherby rushing out of Mr. Anthony ' s apartment, shrieking furiously that the " ferocious beasts " had bitten her, made runs in her stockings, and got into her furs. She complained to the landlord, dramatically claiming that either she or " that dreadful mouse-man " must go! Mr. Anthony was evicted, and was not at all surprised. The trouble with humans, thought the old gentleman, is that they do not appreciate mice. He protested that his mice were not at all fierce, but indeed very gentle, and what if they did have certain dislikes and likings for the human race? Every man and mouse is entitled to his own private feelings. His argu- ments were overlooked, however, and he was told firmly that he would have to leave. Sadly, Mr. Anthony arose from the steps, went to his rooms, and packed his belongings. A little while later he was down on the street once more, a bag in one hand, and a covered cage in the other, a gentle figure with kindly eyes shining behind his spectacles. He paused, then started slowly down the street, where we leave him for now. But does no one appreciate a kind old gentleman and his thirty-three mice? Is there no place for him to stay permanently? Ah, but there is, there is indeed. If you will look up at the sky, you will see a soft fleecy white cloud floating along. On that cloud reclines a gentle-faced angel, an elderly angel with spectacles. But what are sitting beside him; what are curled up by his toes and ears? What are those little pink and white blobs that are sitting on the cloud with him? Why, they are mice, white mice! Mr. Anthony is at peace l st! Jan Torrance, Form Vb, Fairley House. POET-TRY If I could write poetry, prose or a song. My homework would never have taken so long. But my mind is a blank when the editor rages For something to print in the magazine pages. Like the student of old who did ponder all night, I thought and I tried till the dawn became light. I thought of success, and of courage, and hope. Oh, for the genius of a poet like Pope! If the words and their metres would pour out with ease, — Then I wouldn ' t take time writing rhymes such as these. My efforts are fruitless and far from worthwhile, I command neither language, ideas, nor style. So, to mottoes in Latin — " Spem Successus Alit " . I ' ll stick to my lessons, at my desk where I sit. Susan Racey, Form Va, Fairley House. [20] A JOURNEY TO ATHENS IT all began last Tuesday night when I was doing my history homework. That day in school Miss Harvie had been telling us about Alcibiades and the Sicilian Expedition. As I sat there, my head spun around and my eyes went blurry and I felt myself fading away . . . then all of a sudden everything was clear, but where was my history book, my bed, my desk? In place of all these things was a strange marble building and a man standing on the steps. He looked very familiar, not my cousin Joe, not Uncle Jack — who else but Alcibiades! I walked over to him and introduced myself. " I ' m Mary Cliff from the twentieth century A.D., " I said. He stared at me and then said he was Alcibiades, son of so-and-so (some name that I can ' t spell). " Al, " I said, " it would please me very much if you would take me on a conducted tour through Athens. " He replied, " We shall just have time, because I am not due to deliver my speech for a while yet. " We started off down the streets, heading for the Acropolis. I must admit that I was very much pleased at having such a handsome man leading me about the strange city of Athens. The people seemed to know him, and made way for him. I saw Pericles ' house which was very beautiful, and many others. As we approached the Acropolis, I could make out the Parthenon, which is the greatest building on the Acropolis. At last we arrived at the foot of the long stairway leading up to the top. After pufTing and panting, we reached the top, and I am sure that I have never been in a more beautifvil place in my life. The view of Athens was simply superb, and as I gazed up at the huge Parthenon my heart went pit-a-pat. We stepped inside the massive doorway into a gigantic room. In the centre of the room stood the beautiful statue of Athena, all made of gold and ivory. At her pedestal two people, a man and a woman, stood talking. As we drew nearer, I noticed that the man was Socrates, and the woman was none other than Miss Harvie. I was never more surprised in my life, but she was most likely as flabbergasted as I was. " Miss Harvie, I want you to meet Alcibiades, " I said. " Mary, I would like you to meet Socrates, " she replied. We all shook hands and chatted awhile, then Al and I continued on our tour, and let Miss Harvie and Socrates continue their conversation about philosophy. After going through the buildings on the Acropolis, Alcibiades took me to the beginning of the Long Walls and to the market places where the dicasteries met. As he was showing me these places, he told me his plans for an expedition to Sicily to try to end the wars between Sparta and Athens. They were wonderful plans and I told him that I hoped they would turn out successfully. It was nearly time for his speech, and as we had done so much walking, I was feeling very tired. I saw a stone bench that looked comfortable, so I walked toward it, but before I could reach it I slipped and fell with a thud and niy liead grazed the bench. I felt myself floating through the air with a k tni t before my eyes, then the mist started to clear up and I felt myself ittiiig on a liard cliair. Everything seemed familiar, my Myers ' General History, ni hid and my desk. I then realized that I must have fallen asleep. I really (l it I n lightened ahoiil Athens, but I was very glad to be home. Mary Cliff, Form IVb, Ross House. 121] MONTREAL -1900 NEW YEAR ' S EVE THE train grinds to a stop, and the weary passengers alight, glad to be out of the cold, uncomfortable coaches. It is a long walk through the deep snow, and as they pass the wheezing engine with its oversized smokestack, the dim half light of the street lamps shows the entrance to Windsor Station. Almost stumbling, many of them hindered by luggage, the small, almost forlorn looking, group makes its way into the station, and reveals itself: the women wearing long, high waisted, full skirts, many of them having trains, and rather fussy hats, the men clad in formal costume — tails, very tight trousers and silk hats . They file through the station, practically empty except for the usual loafers, and out into the cold stormy night once more. The long line of horse- drawn sleighs presents a picturesque sight waiting in the falling snow, the patient horses flicking their tails, and the coachmen seated high upon the boxes in their fur rugs, sending clouds of breath up into the night. Beyond this, a new landmark, St. George ' s Church, and then nothing . . . but snow, and the lights of the Windsor Hotel twinkling in the distance. A cold biting wind sweeps across from deserted Dominion Square, a merciless wind ( Continued on page 27) [22] MONTREAL - 2000 A.D. As the small jet plane touched the ground at Dorval, the family stepped down the gangway into the broiling Canadian sunshine. Behind them the pilot carried their bagg age — trunks, suit-cases and water-skis. It was New Year ' s Eve in Montreal, and they had left the biting cold of Florida for Canada ' s warm sun. All around, jet specials were carrying ski enthusiasts to the great championship races in the southern states. The family crossed the air-port to the new subway. Montreal ' s first, and its pride and joy, completed after five years of construction. They reached their destination and gazed from their hotel window at Sherbrooke Street, lined with palm trees. The next day included a tour of the city by helicopter. One of the relics on the outskirts of town was an old street-car that had finally been retired ten years before. On it was an inscription, " The last of its race to resist the force of Gordie Moore ' s cartoons. " The father had been in Montreal about sixty years before, and had many a tall tale of the city in " the good old days " — the days when the snow-blowers kept the [topiilatiori awake at night and people crammed like sardines into (Continued on page 2H) TRAFALGAR ' S LAST STAND OR ON THE SUDDEN EXTENSION OF McGREGOR STREET (with apologies to Kenneth Graham) The Road — came — through ! There was bedlam in the classrooms, and a howling on the stairs. There were caving, crumbling corridors, — and mice rushed out in pairs, When the Road — came — through! When the Road — came — through ! All the people scattered madly, through the doors (and windows, too!) There was clattering of cut ' .ery: of whole objects there were few When the Road — came — through ! As the Road — came — througli ! All the shifty, sneering workmen were hilarious with glee, Loudly chopping, madly blasting, and whistling joyously, When the Road — came — through! While the Road — came — through! There were rumblings and tumblings; a sonorous clanging soiuid, There were whistlings and squeakings; great chuggings all around, When the Road — came — through! Crash, go the walls! Former occupants are a-fluster, as renowned Trafalgar plaster Meets the ground, protesting loudly, while the workmen gaze so proudly At the Road — come — through! Jan Torrance, Form Vb, Fairley House. IN THE FOREST WHEN I first saw the forest, I could scarcely believe that such peace and tranquillity could exist on such a hot and humid day. The air was cool and clear, and had that fragrance which always marks abundant growth of living things. The foliage overhead was so thick that the burning sun which had so heated the rest of the world was denied entrance. Even at that the sun, stubborn- ly refusing to recognize nature ' s protection, broke through in places, as golden shafts of light. The trees were of a dark and pleasing green, unspoiled by the dust and smoke of the city. The ground was covered with an amazing variety of wild flowers, and the soil was of that rich brown which always speaks of fertility. If you took the trouble to advance farther into this forest, and indeed it would be hard not to, you would presently hear the bubbling of a brook. As [24] voii went even farther, you would suddenly come upon it and feast your eyes on as pleasant and wonderfid a sight as you could ever hope to see. The foliage overhead was not so thick here as in other parts of the forest, and the sunlight came through in dancing rays of light. The water came hubbling down the rocks like a miniature waterfall, and for coolness and taste I have never yet seen any hrook to equal it. Beside the miniature waterfall a great weeping willow stood and spread out her drooping branches, as if to protect it and add to the beauty of the place. On the other side of the brook, a doe was quietly lapping up the cool water. Suddenly I moved my foot, and a twig snapped. The doe looked up, alarmed. She regarded me for a moment with a look of frank curiosity, and tlien, swiftly turning around, she fled noiselessly into the forest. I felt guilty at having disturbed so lovely a scene, so I turned to go home. As I came out of the forest, I turned to have one last look at it. The sun was setting in the west, and the trees were bathed in the bright colours of sunset uhioli slowly darkened, as the night put the forest to rest. Janet Quinlan, Form IVa, Cumming House.

Ann McDougall, Form Arts VJ, Barclay House. [25] I WONDER IF THEY WERE THE SAME I wonder, fifty years ago, when Traf just got its name, If Grandma and the Gibson Girl weren ' t very much the same As we at school, in modern times, who often think, I fear. That all those school girls of the past were really very queer. Though in our social life, I think, we ' ve changed from Grandma ' s days, When formal speech, the stately waltz, and ' cycles were the craze. To now, when slang, the jitterhug and radio are stars, In school life at Trafalgar, their ways were much like ours. I ' m sure they felt that same old chill when Mam ' selle sprung a test, And no one knew her French at all, and yet they did their best. When Nepos and Pausanias " pugnabant in hello " , And Cimon, Vergil and the rest were not sure where to go, I wonder if they primly sat and wrote the best they could, Or if they worried, fussed and fumed, and said they were " no good " . When Henry, John and Edward III through history notes did pace, I think they also were confused as to who, and in what place. If X plus y, and angle a, could ever equal nought, I ' m sure they thought the same as we, " There ' s something I forgot. " In English Literature and Comp. I ' m sure they were quite bright, For many famous writers, about that time, did write. In Spanish, Physics and the rest they must have had their days, et, nowadays, we think their brains were never in our maze. On sunny, warm spring morns at school, I ' m sure they yearned to seize Their books, depart, and then be free to do the things they please. We think of them as girls of books, and not of sports and play, But in their lengthy hobble skirts, I ' m sure they had a way To somersavilt and run and ski, — do other sports as well. They may have quite outdone us all, that you can never tell. In singing classes, did they stand with earnest upward glance. Or did they pass the latest news about this boy, that dance? Now all these thoughts may be quite wrong, but how am I to mend My ways, when, reader, even you were hardly living then? Anne Cadman, Form Vb, Ross House. [26] ( Continued from page 22) tliat chills the very marrow of their bones. The women huddle in their furs, while the men stamp their feet and rub their beards to prevent them from freezing. A few hardy souls make their way down through the huge drifts to St. James Street, the main shopping district, while the wind howls and roars around the buildings and over the open spaces, swirling the snow high into the air and into their faces with a driving force. St. James Street is brightly lighted and thronged with gay Montrealers doing last minute shopping for the holiday ahead. Every now and then a sleigh, crowded with city people off for a sleigh-ride in the country, glides swiftly by, their gay songs filling the air. Back at the station, the baggage is finally stowed, and off they go, in all directions, some to the older part of Montreal, below Dorchester Street, others to Westmount, where many of the city officials live, or even to the wilds of Notre Dame de Grace or Verdun. Up Peel Street they go, past the brightly lighted W indsor Hotel, where the elite will celebrate the turn of the century. Already there are throngs of people alighting from sleighs, the women in rich furs and jewels, with their escorts in tails and the inevitable silk hats. Turning the corner, they continue along St. Catherine Street, lined with houses, but revealing a few stores — perhaps a prophecy as to what the future will bring. As they pass side streets, large open spaces between the houses, now buried in several feet of snow, reveal that in summer there are beautifid orchards and gardens to be seen. A few blocks east of Guy Street, a church bell [)eals its message, calling people to worship, and once again there are crowds, this time entering a church before beginning their celebrations. The sleighs pass many more such scenes, indicating that Montrealers are conscious of their duty to God, as well as to man. Once on Sherbrooke Street the telephone poles disappear, for only a small portion of the city has phones, and the old gas street lamps are still in use — there is none of the influence of Edison or Bell here. Large, recently built houses, widely spaced, with gardens and rows of ancient maple trees, now bare and dead looking, — Guy and Sherbrooke, 1900. As the horses struggle up Cote des Neiges Hill, the scene is a lonely one, for although the lights of a few houses can be seen here and there, many are dark and deserted, as their owners celebrate the beginning of the twentieth century. The power of the wind seems to be intensified here, and it shrieks and screams around the sleigh, causing the occupants to shiver, perhaps thinking of the warm fire and hot tea awaiting them. At last the horses stop in front of a large, attractive house. Through the brightly lighted windows, gaily clad figures can be seen dancing the lively quadrille. From one of the top windows, two little boys shout frantic greetings, and then disappear, only to throw themselves on their parents as they come in. The cheery warmth in.side is inviting, and as the door closes on the happy group, it is our hope that the new century will bring peace on earth, good will to men. .Sudili 111), ill) ( liur( li hells peal once more, and a cry rings out, destined lo be heard again and again, down through the centuries — — Happy New Year — Wkndy Chim), Form Arts VT, Cumming House.

From that time onwards the ski-tows in the Laurentians had gradually disappeared, and at St. Sauveur movie and television stars now sunbathed at the foot of Hill 60. The crowds at the Forum were cheering the Canadian team in the world tennis championships, as they easily defeated the Americans. " Of course Canadians are able to practise all the year round, " the mother remarked. " No wonder they alw ays win. " At home on their television sets eager Montreal hockey fans watched the Stanley Cup play-offs at Mexico City, while McGill students cheered their friends good-bye as they departed to take part in the Winter Carnival of the University of California. A t the top of Simpson Street, in the library of a building, a group of girls viewed the changing scene of the world outside. Under the eyes of the marble bust of Dante they discussed the forthcoming golf match with The Study, and the plans of the City of Montreal to put a street through their school. They looked at magazines and laughed at the uniforms their grandmothers had worn in 1950. The door of the library opened, and a prefect poked her head around the corner. " I ' m afraid you girls have bad marks for talking, " she said. Barbara Davison, Form Arts VI, Ross House. WHY DIDN ' T HE COME? I PEERED through the gathering darkness as the snow swirled around me. I was cold and wet. The books which I held in my arms were also soaking, and the ink was blurred. Why didn ' t he come? I had been waiting for over an hour. Why? Oh, why wasn ' t he here? I looked again. No . . . but wait! What was this? A faint shadow was taking shape. Could it be? Was it? Yes, he had arrived! The shadow grew larger and clearer. Oh, it was he! I smiled and stepped to meet him. He drew closer, opened the door of his vehicle, and I boarded the number fourteen street car. Audrey Allworth, Form IIIa, Ross House. MARCH 3rd, 14° BELOW ZERO Oh, to be in Bermvida, Where the balmy breezes blow. To be away from Canada, With all its sleet and snow! The silver sands seem calling. Their voices reach my ear. Though snow at home is falling, Down there the skies are clear. A picture comes before me Of houses, cool and white. While deep blue waters of the sea Reach far beyond my sight. If wishes, planes could only be. Far down there I would fly, To one white house beside the sea Where palms point to the sky, Anne Carman, Form Va, Ross House. [28] LIFE IN THE FIRST LOCKER ROOM IT as late on Friday night, and everything was quiet. Suddenly a bright eve peeked through the crack inider the door. Nothing alarming appeared, so the Mouse family, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Mouse and their two children, Maxine and Morris, crept through the hole, with all their worldly possessions. Mr. Mouse made a tour of the room. Suddenly he spied a hole in the corner and called the family around him. After surveying the site and poking into the hole for a few minutes, the Mouse family took an option. Mrs. Mouse found a lovely scarf under one of the lockers, which made a perfect bed, and the family was soon settled. Saturday and Sunday passed quietly, much to the family ' s delight. It was decided that the perfect place for peace and quiet had been found. The next dav the Mouse family went out early in the morning, and didn t arrive home until about eleven o ' clock. Mrs. Mouse was setting the nest to rights, when suddenly a bell broke the silence. Like a bolt out of the blue, a horde of girls descended upon the locker room, practically taking the door off its hinges. Morris, who was sitting just outside the entrance of the hole, was paralyzed, and Mr. Mouse just saved him from being trampled to death. Then, almost as suddenly as it had started, the racket stopped. The family had just got its breath, when another bell rang and a worse rumpus began. Shoes flew, boots were scattered, and the nest was nearly flooded by flying snow from the girls ' coats. A glove just saved them from this catastrophe by plugging up the hole. The mice crouched down, far back in their once peaceful home and trembled. A Prefect ' s voice could be heard above the din with " No talking, please, girls! " while, " How do you do the last math problem of page 575? " and, " Wasn ' t the homework horrible? " filtered through the glove. After about five minutes of expecting the roof to collapse, the Mouse family was suddenly aware of a strange peace and quiet. Mr. Mouse nosed the glove aside and peeked out into the room. Everything seemed safe enough, so he ventured out to the middle of the floor. Morris and Maxine also crept out with their father. As for Mrs. Mouse, she didn ' t have time even to glance out of the hole. She was busy collecting the family ' s belongings. She had decided that the first locker room ' s " peace and quiet " was a little too much for her nerves. Lydia Ebel, Form IIIa, Barclay House. L29J THREE DAYS FROM A DIARY April 215t, 4555. Today began rallier alarmingly! I was not awake until twenty-five lo nine — five minutes later than usual. I liad to hurry to get to school in time. To add to my troubles we had to use tlie sixth helicopter which is terribly slow! Imagine it — only going at the speed of sound! Although the robot chauffeur broke down, I was well on tlie way with oidy another hundred miles to go at ten to nine. Fortunately I was not late at all. Most of us wore our wings to school, but mine were in my desk, and so I had to wait for 11.5 seconds while I put them on. Such a waste of time I Going up the stairs I did not dare to go fast. I crept up at 95 m.p.h., but some girls got into trouble for exceeding the speed limit (250 m.p.h.). Politics was the first subject. It was dull, as usual. History was quite interesting , however. We learned about the twentieth century people. Apparent- ly they did very queer things. To begin with they invented childish weapons called " A-bombs " , and " H-bombs " . I am sure they were nothing to our " X-bomb " and " Z-bomb " . In Mechanics we took our helicopters apart. I have done it often before, but it was quite fun all the same. I am longing for next year because we will build helicopters then. In Chemistry we studied bombs. I think it was the nicest subject of all. We went to a museum and studied " A-bombs " . They are perfectly childish ! My brother made a better one than that yesterday. We had a little atom- splitting practice and then I got tired of classes, and went home. I took two knowledge pills to make up for the lessons I had missed, collected a new robot from the Employment Bureau, and watched Colourision all afternoon. [30] I believe they had " Television " in the twentieth century, and enjoyed it, although it was not in colour and did not reply when you spoke to it! April 22nd. After taking five knowledge pills, I got out a helicopter and went skiing in Switzerland. There was my favourite kind of ski-tow, the sort that you get into, and are lifted straight up to a higher level than the hill-top. Then you ski down a special run-way to the hill-top. It was great fun. I talked on the visiophone all afternoon. Ours has a larger space to see the person at the other end of the line, and it has brighter colour than Mary ' s visiophone. I believe the twentieth centur y men called theirs " Telephones " . They had a very primitive type though. April 23rd. I spent about a quarter of an hour at the North Pole learning about Eskimoes. and about half an hour learning History. I found out that people used to have no means of controlling the weather, and had horrible droughts and floods. I think our plan of having all rain or snow at night is much more sensible, because we can always be sure of fine days. After taking a knowledge pill, I went to Florida all day. In the evening, I amused myself with my " Colourights " , a new sort of night-clothes that have coloured movies on them all the time, and not just ordinary ones. There was a horror story on my left wrist, and a straight movie on my left knee. I also en joyed the historical one on my right calf and the comical one on my right arm. I saw several others too. (.ompared to the night-clothes worn in the twentieth century they are striking. The clothes they wore then were quite plain with no movies at all. They wore plain cloth clothes, and school-girls wore simple navy-blue things called " tunics " . Hideous! I would die of boredom without my movie clothes. Oh dear! It is ten minutes and four seconds to nine! I ought to have had my light out at ten minutes and six seconds to nine! I do hope Mummy will not mind my being two seconds late! Caryl Churchill, Form II, Cunnniug House. THE SANDMAN I know a funny little man. He is soft grey in my sight. And he comes and tells me stories, in the night. Then he pours a little sand. Just upon the sleepy land. Then he disappears from me. Sailing on the silvery sea. Ardis Cartwright, Remove, Aged 8. [31] THE KING WHO DID NOT LIKE HIS DAUGHTER NCE there was a wicked king, who had a heautifnl (huighter named Silver Bell. Silver Bell was a good {)rin(ess, hul her father always treated her hadly and she suffered terribly. She had no friends, because she was always kept inside the palace. One dav, while she was singing, a prince heard her and wondered where she might be. He looked around and listened, but he could not tell where the voice came from. So he decided to go home, and away he went. On his way home he thought it would be a good idea to ask his mother who was singing so beautifully. So he asked his mother and she told him, " Well my child, the only one who, I think, sings beautifully is Princess Silver Bell; but it would be hard to talk to her, because her father, the king, would chop off your head, so beware. " But the Prince just didn ' t care. He went to the palace and asked the King if he could have his daughter ' s hand. The King said, " Well, let me see, have you a lot of money? " and the Prince replied, " Yes I have; well, not billions, but I ' ve got my kingdom and enough money to last. " So the King said, " If you marry her, treat her badly. " So the Prince married Silver Bell, but never took the King ' s advice. He loved her till the end of his life. Suzanne Lyman, Upper I, Aged 10. AUTUMN Autumn days are here again. We hear the summer ' s parting refrain. Leaves of gold and red and brown From every tree come fluttering down. The air is frosty, the wind is cold, From the trees falls autumn gold. Autumn days are here again. In the fields are stacks of grain, And now throughout the land is seen Witches, pumpkins and Hallowe ' en. Gillian Donald, Upper II, Ross House. [32] THE STORM A pale moon shines on the horizon, And the sky is a purplish hue, A dark and threatening cloud Hangs over the mountains blue. Then down comes the hail in torrents. And the wind sweeps wide and wild. Tearing to pieces the blossom Of nature ' s once budding child. And the crops in the fields bend over. Bowing their heads down low, j As the wind sweeps over the valley, Drifting the frozen snow. Then, as quickly as it started. The hail storm abruptly ends. Leaving the country desolate. Aware of the message God sends. ViclCY CuMYN, Upper II, Fairley House. TWINKLE, THE LITTLE STAR THERE was a great commotion in Slarland, because the North Star had just got a baby named Twinkle. As Twinkle grew up she became prettier every night. Once, when shining brightly, she started to lose her brilliance; just then a little angel was looking at her, when suddenly Twinkle nearly disappeared. The little angel went to his mother and said, " Twinkle is nearly lost, have you got some Stardust? " His mother answered, " Yes, here is some. " The little angel took it and flew away. As soon as he could see Twinkle, he flew in her direction. When he got to her, he scattered the Stardust. It twinkled more than ever. The little angel returned home and looked in the sky, and there was Twinkle shining like a liuge diamond. At this the little angel said, " This will make the girls and boys happy on Earth. " LuciLE Robert, Lower I, Aged 9. THE SHAMROCK ONCE upon a time there was a shamrock. This little shamrock was a very good little shamrock. One day he said to his mother, " I am very tired of being good, I would like to be bad. " Then his mother said, " O.K. you may be bad, you have been so good that I think you may be bad. " So the little shamrock was bad. He put the pie in his mother ' s shoe, and then he threw the potatoes out of the window, then he put the pot of soup on the floor upside-down, and then he cut off his mother ' s hair. Then he said to his mother, " Now 1 have been bad and I would like to be good again. " So he was good from that day on. Marioix Ballantyne, Preparatory, Aged 7. TO TAKE To take is something awfully nice. But when it comes to giving. It ' s awfully hard to give it up And that ' s one trouble with living. It ' s easy to say " thank-you " . But harder to say " with pleasure " . When you know that you are giving up Something you might always treasure. .Judith Bennett, Form II, Barclay House. I AM LITTLE BARBARA NICKEL I AM in reality not made of nickel now, but I used to he made of real silver. Some workmen brought me out of the ground. Other men took me to the Mint in Ottawa. I had a terrible time there. I was put into a big fire, then cooled off again. Then I was pressed very tightly between heavy rollers. After that, the men cut us all into little round pieces and drew the king ' s face on one side, and made maple leaves on the other. They also stamped how much I was worth and the year I was born. Some of my friends have beavers on them instead of a big V. Then I was counted and sold and used for money. I went to a bank from the mint. I was at the bank for two weeks when I was stolen. A policeman found me and the other money too. I was given to a poor boy for Christmas. He was very happy. Barbara Hartekre, Upper I, Aged 11. [34] THE INDIAN RAID I ' m the captain, brave as can be, All the pioneers say " Sir " to me! There ' s hundreds of Indians out behind the trees, Comanches, Apaches, Slioshones and Crees! They ' re creeping and crouching, and reaching lor arrows. Out in the dark woods where the path narrows. They ' re crawling and padding . . . They ' re all closing in! It ' s quiet in the stockade . . . Now there ' s a din ! I just gave the signal! The muskets go CRACK! But on come the Indians, there ' s no falling back. Here comes a big brave, his skin red as rust. BANG goes my rifle — he ' s dead in the dust. j All right, men! Keep firing! Don ' t stop for a breath. It ' s us or the Indians, so fight to the death. The arrows are whizzing, but all, all around. The Indians are falling down dead to the ground. Shoot, men, and fire, men! Crack, crack goes a gun. We ' ve got them. There ' s none left — oh, yes, there ' s just one. A big chief, a wild one. He looks like a Cree. Cease firing. I ' ll get him. Leave this one for me. WHIZZ goes an arrow, BANG goes my gun. I ' ve got him — he staggered — he ' s trying to run ! You ' re dead . . . Yes, you are, too! Lie down and play dead. Lie down. Stop that wriggling, and don ' t scratch your head. All right, men, we ' ve got them. The battle is done. We ' ve shot all the Indians. The Pioneers won! Prudence Reilley, Upper II, Fairley House. JUNIOR SCHOOL [35] ONCE UPON A MOONBEAM Once upon a moonbeam, A little secret flew. He was very kind and good. His name is " Little Goo. " One day he bumped his head so dear. And down to earth he came. All the other secrets knew That they were all to blame. He flies around the lovely earth. Watching children play. He is always full of mirth, From one imto the next day. He Hies around, from tree to tree, Watching, teaching us to be Kind and good, as good as he. When he flies from to tree to tree. Baubara Jordan, Form H, Ross House. THE MAGIC SKATES ANNE had a new pair of fancy skates. She had wanted them for a long time. One day the ice froze clear and smooth, so she went marching proudly down the street, the skates flashing in the sunlight. When she got there, she put on the skates and glided away. Suddenly she began to fly up, into the air up, up she went till she found herself floating along on a little cloud. Suddenly she saw a little bottle lying at her feet. She picked it up. It had a big label marked MOONSHINE in big red letters. She was now going through a huge gateway. There was Mr. Moon looking very sad. " What is the matter Mr. Moon? " asked Anne. " I lost my Moonshine, so I can ' t go to the Ciiristmas Party, " said Mr. Moon sadly. Here ' s your moonshine, Mr. Moon, " said Anne. " Shall I polish your nose for you? " " les please, if you would be so kind, " said Mr. Moon. While she was doing it, suddenly he asked, " Where did you get those magic skates? " " Are they really magic? " asked Anne. " Of course they are, do you think you would have got here without them? " " I don ' t know, " said Anne. But all of a sudden she found herself skating around the rink very proudly. Elizabeth McKay, Remove, Aged 8. [36] GOBLINS AND ELVES Goblins and Elves are funny little fellows. They ' ve got little wings and they ' ve got little bellows. They live under toadstools and have daisies for umbrellas. That ' s all I ' ve to tell of those little fellows. Betty Shannon, Preparatory, Aged 7. OLD CLOTHES AND NEW THE was a queer old lady and she was so very old. She was one of my grandmother ' s best friends, and so she invited me around to tea. When I arrived at the house, it was the old lady who opened the door. Directly I stepped inside, I felt I had stepped into a new world — a world of a lady ninety years old. The room was very dark and faded. On the mantelpiece were many bronze cupids and wax flowers under glass domes. We sat down, and had a cup of tea and some warm sugar buns. After the tea on the faded couch, the old lady asked me if I was interested in old clothes. I said I would love to see them, so she led me up the winding stairs until we came to the box-room. It was empty, except for a large trunk which was gathering dust in the middle of the room. With simple reverence the old lady lifted the top of the heavy box. Under the heavy lid lay all her childhood treasures. There were dresses, once white, yellow and faded with age now. Dolls, beautiful china ones, with expressive eyes and real hair, clothed as little ladies of that day. After the dolls came lace parasols and other oddities. The old lady ' s hands trembled, and tears filled her eyes. She told me the story of all her treasures and, when time came for me to leave for home, I was sorry to go, but I promised to come another afternoon. I left, and turned over this afternoon in my mind. I was looking forward to the next one — but it never came, for the little old lady died. She had left me in her will her only precious possessions, her brass-bound trunk and in it the clothes, dolls and things of a little old lady, lonely no more, happy with all her friends in the everlasting lands.

SPEAKING OF NOISES IF YOU want to hear the most peculiar noises on this side of the earth, just come to the upper-dorm from 9:30 p.m. on. It all starts when the mistress on duty walks out of the dorm, accompanied hy the most hearty wishes for a good night ' s sleep. Then Belanger yells: " My laundry bag ' s gone! " The only answer from her cell-mates is " What was in it? " (Everybody is hungry around here). A few seconds later. Smith lets out with, " I ' m so sleepy, I can ' t even see crooked. " During this half hour (9:30 — 10:00), intended for the reading of " light literature " (ahem) we are comparatively quiet (down to a low roar). When the lights are finally out, we do the only thing left to do, a slight increase of the low roar. The groans of those trying to sleep, the sighs of the lucky ones reading whatever form of light literature they prefer, and the rhythmic grunts of the brave ones studying geometry, echo through the cell-block. Every so often, the singer (Smith), yells out opportunely " The Teachers are coming, Yahoo! Yahoo! " Meanwhile, the turning of pages, the dropping of bobby-pins, the opening of jar. i and tlie gooing up of faces begins. A few minutes later. Smith crashes down to the bathroom followed by her " sickly orange " hot water bottle. Candies are heard cracking under the pressure of hungry jaws, and kleenex is pulled out by the weaker ones having no.se bleeds. The calory-counters do exercises, while fla.-ih light rays cri.ss-cross the ceiling (the moon was not made for Traf. boarders, for sure ) . Then someone gets mad, takes a slight dive into her mat and the wliole dorm shakes like a Maple Leaf (after being checked by Kenny Reardon). .Some of the others, dreamily gazing out of the open window at the rising moon, cause the already shivering occupants of the dorm to make a mad rush I 39 I to the clothes rack. A warning cough, the click clack of heels and the pity-pat of shppers is heard rushing to the " John " . In an instant coats are grabbed, hangers are dropped, and in a flash a stampede of ghostly figures disappears into the cubicles. Silence reigns, and nobody gets wet (as Smith would say), until the sweet melody of the rising bell puts you in an inspired mood for the rest of the day. THE QUARREL IN the year 1918 on the night of August 5, the harvest moon cast a ribbon of silver light over the calm bay, revealing the dark silhouette of a small sail boat steadilv advancing towards the shore. The approaching craft was carefully watched by two men restlessly waiting on the shore. Although it was a very warm night, one of them wore a heavv jacket. He was a little more talkative than his companion, and kept walking back and forth, nervously lighting one cigarette after another. As the boat arrived near the shore, the two men ran down to meet it, and after a brief greeting the three walked into the boat house. They remained tliere a long time, murmuring in low tones. Soon one of them produced a small box which was immediately opened and its contents spread on the table. After examining the ghstening pearls contained in the box, tlie three men began to quarrel in loud, bitter tones. Tables and chairs were overturned. The only light went out. A short silence followed, and then two shots shattered the deadly silence of the night. The door opened, and one man cautiously walked toward the awaiting craft, carrying one small box under his arm. Renee Goldstone, Form IVa, Ross House. HOW NOT TO GET READY FOR BED E ERYBODY gets ready for bed, but at Traf. we have a different system. At 8:45 you march upstairs, run a bath, collect the s Jecial fruit and bounce lightly into the nearest cubicle to gossip. When a teacher makes inquiries, the most appropriate answer is to tell her you will be ready in just a mimite. With a suitcase full of articles, you parade to the bathtub to find that it has over- flowed. The time 9:20; not too much left. When the bath is over, if you have not been drowned in your great haste, the next procedvire is an attempt to curl your hair, but after giving that up as a lost cause, off you go to another cubicle for consolation. In all the confusion, your nylons, teeth, hand lotion, face cream, window opening, tidying up, and winding of watch and clock have been completely forgotten, when in walks the mistress on duty to say good-night at 9:30 prompto! You say good-night wondering just what kind of night it really was. Helen Smith, Form Va, Gumming House.

LES ARBRES EN AUTOMNE PENDANT I ' automne, quand les arbres commencent a changer de couleurs, les hois offrent un spectacle magnifique. Je suis certaine que nulle part dans le monde personne ne trouvera de couleurs plus vives que celles de nos forets canadiennes. Les couleurs varient du jaune pale au vif orange, de rose au rouge flamboyant. La silhouette sombre des coniferes se decoupant sur le fond rouge des hois fait encore ressortir toute cette gamme de riches couleurs. Nan Carlin, Form IVb, Barclay House.

Notre ami nous conseilla de ne pas tovicher rauinial, qui ii ' acceptait aucune caresse, meme de son maitre. Une petite fille de cinq ans, parmi nous, admirait fort le chien etendu aux pieds de son maitre. Elle aimait beaucoup les animaux et voulait caresser celui-ci, malgre les avertissements du maitre. Petit a petit elle s ' approcha. Le chien montrait les dents, mais Tenfant n ' etait pas effrayee. De minute en minute elle avangait vers lui, et lui, continuait de montrer sa mauvaise humeur. Enfin la petite fut assez pres pour passer trois fois sa petite main sur la tete du chien. Nous attendions tons la colere de I ' animal, qui se contenta de quitter la piece sans faire aucun mal a I ' enfant. La bonte et I ' amour de la petite fille avaient dompte le chien sauvage.

LA BELGIQUE LA Belgique, mieux connue sous le nom de la " Petite Belgique " a cavise de sa superficie pen etendue comparee a sa population qui est tres dense, est I ' un des pays dont nous entendons le plus souvent parler ces jours-ci. En Belgique chacun se demande si le roi Leopold reviendra sur le trone. Toutefois on connait moins ses habitants, qui se divisent en deux races distinctes — les flamands et les wallons. La Belgique est tres industrieuse et econome. Bruges et Gand (Ghent) sont les deux plus jolies villes medievales du pays. Bruges avec ses canaux, et Gand avec ses chateaux sont des villes tres interessantes. La foret des Ardennes est une des plus belles forets de la Belgique; Shakespeare en parle dans sa fameuse piece " As You Like It " . Imaginons xin instant un coin d ' une belle vallee pres de la riviere Lesse, un rocber sur lequel etait construit un cbateau du treizieme siecle mais qui fut malheureusement detruit, (un autre fut erige a sa place). 11 ne faut j)as oublier sa capitale, Bruxelles, avec sa grande place, le Theatre le la monnaie, et le hois de la (Jiambre.

WINNERS OF PHOTO CONTEST First — Joyce Rubbra THE GRADUATION DANCE The Graduation Dance of 1950 began at 9.30 p.m. on Friday, January 27. Our gym looked beautiful in the soft lights; the ceiling a mass of wide blue and white streamers from both sides of the room. Behind the orchestra was a blue background with a large blue and silver crest, a silver chain, and a large silver 50, giving the effect of a class pin. Seeing the girls, lovely in their dresses, the boys, handsome in their ' tux ' , all the hard work and preparation seemed worthwhile. We would like to take this opportunity of expressing our thanks and appreciation to the Orkets for making our evening letter perfect — your music made up for what might have been missing. We would like to express our grateful thanks, also, to the Old Girls ' Association, for sponsoring the dance. We found one complaint to make — the evening went much too quickly. Good luck to the next Sixth Form on their dance. Elizabeth Kenkel, Pat Wkight [54] BARCLAY HOUSE " Tende bene et alia pete " WE would like to welcome the new girls to the House; you have all been very co-operative. The portrayal of the " Last Supper " in the House Competition was extremely well done, and we feel this was a good beginning for the new year. Barclay was well represented on the Basketball Teams, having, on the First Team, Joyce Charles, Ann McDougall and Judy White, and on the Second Team, Tassie Metrakos and Beryl Macario. Judy White was also a member of the Tennis and Ski Teams. We would like to thank Miss Stansfield for her help in the House. We are all looking forward to the Field Day, and hope to see Barclay take an active part in it, as it has always done. (j()o(l liu k to all the members of the House, and many prosperous days to coiuc. Anna Couropoulos Judy White [55] GUMMING HOUSE " Facia non Verba " WE welcome all tlie new girls wlio liave joined our House, and should like to thank all, both old and new, who have entered into the spirit of the House and supported it. We should greatly appreciate more active support from some of our junior members. A great deal of our interest went into the House Competition, and although we only managed to obtain the " booby prize " , everyone enjoyed working on the project. Our House, this year, seems to be sports conscious. The girls representing us on the First Basketball Team were Elaine Albert, Bunty Poole, Ernita Elton and Judy Cliff, on the Second Basketball Team, Greta Straessle, Sylver Dennis, Philippa Hansard and Audrey (jater. On the Tennis Team we had Judy Cliff, and on the Ski Team, Greta Straessle. We now look forward to the Inter-House Basketball matches, and to Field Day. Those events usually provide Cumming with a few extra points, as well as with plenty of fun. The Heads of Cumming House would like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Cam for her help and encouragement, and the members of the House for their co-operation. 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 increase. Perhaps next year Cumming will be able to reach even greater heights. Let ' s go, Cumming! Judy Cliff Ernita Elton [56] FAIRLEY HOUSE " Service before Self " THE first major event of the year was the House Competition. This year it took the form of a tableau. Fairley elected to do the famous scene from the life of Joan of Arc in which Joan is burned at the stake. All members of the House entered enthusiastically into the spirit of the scene, everyone worked hard, and we were very proud to find that the judge ' s decision gave us tlie top honours. We would like to thank every girl who helped to make our tableau a success. Sonia Dawe represented us on the Basketball Team, Sheila Joy on the Tennis Team, and Elizabeth Webb on the Ski Team. Congratulations, girls, ail did very well! Mrs. Leonard has been invaluable to us in helping us to rvm Fairley House, and we appreciate all the time, thought, and energy she has given to our plans and problems. We have found the girls to be most enthusiastic this year. Special mention should be made of Marjorie Ann Payette, Judy Liersch, and Jan Torrance in making points, and to Elizabeth Webb for designing the scenery for the ( Competition. Fairley came first in the Christmas term, and at press time we are hoping to kf ( |) lip the good work. We shall be thinking of you next year, girls. All our best wishes for your success. We are going to miss you. Caroi.ee Beaudoiin Judy Westaway ROSS HOUSE " Suaviter in more — forliu-r in re " ANOTHER year in the history of Ross House is drawing to a close. We have enjoyed the year, and woukl like to thank all the girls who have worked so enthusiastically, and represented Ross in the various competitions. The House Competition was a great success this year. Everyone worked verv hard to present the different pageants. Congratulations to Fairley House for their victory! In spite of grim Tuesday morning bad mark lists, Ross managed to reach second place at Christmas, only five points behind Fairley ' s total of 1019. The House was represented on the Basketball Team by Mary Cliff, Jane Allison, Jocelyn Stevens, and Barbara Magor, on the Ski Team by Barbara Magor, Helen Stone, and Jocelyn Stevens. Special mention should be made of Janet LeDain, Joyce Rubbra and Annik Smith for their enthusiastic support and the points they have made. We would like to express our appreciation to Miss Harvie for all her interest and help. In conclusion, we wish every success and happiness for Ross in the coming year. Barbara Davison Barbara Magor [58] MUSIC APPRECIATION HE benefit and importance of Music cannot be doubted, and so Trafalgar School has Music Appreciation included in its curriculum. These classes take place on Tuesday mornings. Miss Wayland, our teache r, calls the roll, after which we listen to a programme of records and take notes on them. Sometimes the girls bring records of their own. Favourites range from Christopher Robin, Scheherazade, and the Nutcracker Suite, to the inspiring symphonies of the great Masters. We have also had albums of famous composers ' lives. This year, our opportunity for Music Appreciation has extended beyond the confines of school, as quite a number of the girls have attended the series of Young People ' s Symphony Concerts conducted by Dr. Pelletier. Miss Wayland co-operates with Dr. Pelletier by giving us, beforehand, some of the items to be played on his programme. She gives comments, and then we discuss the numbers in class. Each year the Fourth Form pupils make Music Scrapbooks. Pictures are gathered from magazines, papers, etc., and pasted in the scrapbooks. At the end of the year, they are judged, and a prize given to the best. Last year 1 was the fortunate winner. On March 25th Dr. Pelletier held the last concert of the season, at which five of our Trafalgar girls won prizes for their scrapbooks. They were: Tassie Metrakos, Priscilla Sargent, Anne Cadman, Carol Armour, and Judy Liersch. And are we ever proud of them! Heartiest congratulations! The girls of the Sixth Form do not have Music Appreciation, and many of them come and tell Miss Wayland how they miss it. It is a very enjoyable class, and all those who have learned to appreciate good music have learned an important lesson in living. Edith Paton, Form Vb, Ross House. THE JUNE RECITAL MRS. Hannen and Miss Lyman decided to have a joint recital, last June. Miss Foster, the Staff, and all the parents were invited to it. The girls wore white dresses, and the little ones looked particularly sweet. Miss Lyman ' s jiujiils played first, and then Miss Lyman was asked by one of her pupils to play for us. She played a very pretty minuet. Mrs. Hannen ' s pupils came next, lo be followed by Mrs. Hannen and Miss Wayland playing four two-piano |)ieces which were beautifully played and ended the concert very well. Tea was served, and then the parents went home, thinking of the pleasant afternoon llicv had sjicnt. LocrsE DuPONT, Form HTa, Barclay House.

[64] THE GYMNASTIC DEMONSTRATION The gymnastic demonstration of 1950 opened with a colourful display of Scandinavian folk dancing. The girls were dressed in appropriate costumes, and the audience were able to catch the feeling of the dances easily. On Thursday only, the tinv girls of the Preparatory did very well indeed with their games and exercises. Later they returned for a second item, the " Waltz of the Flowers ' , which they performed in very attractive costumes of pastel colours. Forms Lower I and Remove did very exciting relay races which brouglit cries of enjoyment from the spectators. The box work, by Form IL was very thrilling to watch, as the girls jumped and dived from the springboard to the box. Form IPs marching came off very well as they made " wheels " and " running figure eights " . Form V did a difficult non-stop, no-command drill which was performed with great precision and skill. The senior girls ' balancing brought a great thrill to the audience as they did difficult manoeuvres on the high balance benches. Vaulting, also done by the seniors, was demonstrated with great skill, and was well received by those watching. The tumbling was a wonderful show, with a variety of new and difficult acts performed by the senior girls. Form Upper I did a very different act, dancing with huge coloured cups and saucers made from cardboard. Rope climbing was presented with great enthusiasm by the juniors. The Sixth Forms did a graceful act with beach halls, to the music of " South Pacific " . They were dressed in neat white shorts and blouses, with blue and silver sashes. The result was very effective and drew rounds of applause from the audience. Form IV presented a new act on the benches, done to music. Half the girls were in blue and half in white blouses, arranged alternately, to give an effect of contrast. Form IIPs skipping act again thrilled the audience. This was followed by the Grand March — an old Trafalgar custom. After the Friday performance, the Reverend R. ,|. Berlis gave a short address to the performers, and Mrs. Paul White presented the girls with " G Badges " and " Stars " . (• would like to express our sincere thanks to Miss Box for her iciicc and enthusiasm, and for all she did to make the 1950 gymnastic demonstration a success. Thanks should also be given to Miss Wayland for I lie assistance she gave in playing the piano. Judy Liersch, Form IIIa, Fairley House.

The First Team was not successful in winning the League Cup, but they had a very good record, winning all their games except one, which they lost to The Study, 21-23. This meant a play-off " game with The Study who had lost only one game to Trafalgar, 28-27. The play-ofl " was disappointing, as The Study won, but we are still very proud of our First Team.
