Elizabeth II ascends the throne of the far-flung British Common- weahh. Already she has taken her place as one of the most beloved sovereigns England has ever known. She holds a special place in our hearts also, for it was just over a year ago that she and the Duke of Edinburgh made their historic visit to Canada. In 1926, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born to Elizabeth, wife of the Duke of York, second son of George V. Little thought was given to the fact that this child might one day be England ' s Queen. Not until 1937, on the dramatic abdication of her uncle, was this possibility realized. Her training and education have been such as to befit her for the endless duties of a sovereign. She and her father, our beloved late King George, shared a deep and affectionate understanding. From her mother, Elizabeth has inherited a gracious and sympathetic nature, endearing her to people within and without the Commonwealth. In November 1947, Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten, and the glorious Royal Wedding took place in Westminster Abbey. The following year, she gave birth to a son, Charles, and two years later, Anne was born. " Famous have been the reigns of our Queens " were the words of Prime Minister Churchill — and with Elizabeth II ' s accession to the throne there is a feeling of hope for an era of prosperity such as was known in the First Elizabethan Era. In her Christmas message, the Queen asked for the support of our prayers on the momentous occasion of her coronation. We unite to pjay, " God save our Queen " . [13] EDITORIAL ' " j HIS YEAR we would like to pay tribute to our Principal, who has been at Trafalgar since 1940, and who, we sincerely hope, will continue as Head- mistress for many, many years to come. She is most capable and efficient, always setting a high standard for the girls to follow. Dr. Foster came to Trafalgar well prepared for the responsibility of her present position. She obtained both B.A. and M.A. degrees from McGill University. Following this, she attended Oxford, where B.A. and M.A. degrees were again conferred upon her. After further post-graduate study. Dr. Foster received her Ph.D. at Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania. It is not difficult, therefore, to believe Dr. Foster ' s own statement, when urging us to study for our examinations, " I think I am one of the most examined persons in Canada. " Dr. Foster is a member of various societies in v hich she takes an active interest: the McGill Alumnae Society, the Canadian Institute of International Affairs, and the Humanities Association. Her outside activities, however, are not limited to these. She was president of the Historical Society from 1950 to 1952, and president of the Canadian Headmistresses Association from 1951 to 1953. Consequently, this year, the biennial meeting of the latter was held at Trafalgar during the Christmas holidays. Often we do not realize the strenuous routine whicli Dr. Foster, as our Principal, has to follow. Every morning she conducts prayers for the whole school; we also see her presiding graciously at the gymnastic demonstration, and chatting with our parents at the Trafalgar Day tea. At the closing, in June, we are always impressed by her great dignity as she stands before the school and guests to deliver the Principal ' s annual report. In addition to her administrative duties. Dr. Foster finds time to teach History to both fifth and sixth forms, and presents the facts in a most interesting sequence — " slight diversions " causing no end of entertainment. Every girl in this school is indebted to Dr. Foster for her fine leader- ship. She has always commanded our greatest respect, and we hope we may be as successful, each in our own way, as she is in hers. [15] [16] A Student s Prayer GOD, who art the Father of us all, help us to follow in thy ways and do thy will. We thank theee for thy loving kindness, for the gifts of health and strength and for the opportunity of attending this school. Save us from having a feeble sense of duty and from thoughtlessness toward others, from self-conceit, from love of flattery, from dislike of criticism; give us knowledge of our powers and weaknesses. We pray thee for all schools and for those who teach in them, that they may be guided by thy will. Help us to benefit by their effort and understanding, and teach us to discriminate between right and wrong. We ask this, believing in the power of thy holy name. Amen. AFTERNOON REST Blinds down against the sun, closed door To stop the daytime noise from coming in. Shoes cast off and lying on the floor. Not in, not on the bed, just covered o ' er With tickling blanket. Outside the din Of traffic, and the roar Of streetcars straining slowly up the hill: Oh, how I hate to rest! An awful bore To lie down in the day if one ' s not ill But only hampered by late night before And knowledge that tonight will be the same. It ' s very quiet inside, it ' s very still. And outside life is busy, I deplore This being made to rest against my will. I will not sleep. That much at least I said Before they left me lying on my bed. Telling me that I will feel far more Inclined to evening joys when I have slept. I know I won ' t: When wakened, all my head Feels heavy, dazed. But since they kept [17] Insisting that I rest awhile, I am. To dwell on it would only be a sham. I ' ll lie and think of pleasant things instead. Of people met, of friendly things we said. Of happy days I ' ve spent, and many more Besides: of things I heard and saw Last summer, wandering paths that led I knew not where . . . This afternoon is slipping by, unused. I will not go to sleep. I do not care If they are cross. I ' m much abused — For surely I should know if I ' m Not tired. How I abhor This laziness enforced against my will. I think I ' ll rise and tell them I can ' t sleep — In just a minute now. Not right away. Of lying down I ' ve surely had my fill, But not just yet, a minute more ... Not really tired: I ' ve merely closed my eyes To think with greater ease. Outside the skies Are blue, and grass is green, and all is wide awake ... It ' s really rather comfortable like this . . . I ' m really not asleep; just slightly more Adjusted to this resting than before . . . A very pleasant bed, it ' s really bliss To have such comfy things . . . Think, all those poor And lively wide awake who aren ' t in bed . . . Not really tired . . . Caryl Churchill, Form IVb, Cumming House. BLIND DATE THE PHONE rings and all unsuspecting you answer. It ' s your girl friend asking whether you would like to go on a blind date on New Year ' s Eve. You think, " Good Heavens, on New Year ' s Eve? " , but then you remember that you have nothing else to do, and it ' ll probably be better than sitting at home, anyway. So you bravely say " Yes, that will be fine. " Then come the misgivings and " wishing you hadn ' ts " . The boy is out of town, so you don ' t expect to hear from him until the evening of the thirtieth. Then you realize that you are going to a party on the thirtieth, so you leave explicit instructions for your parents. They are to have him phone you at your hostess ' home. But what will her mother think when this strange voice asks for you? Now your misgivings [18 1 are really growing. The party goes on gaily, but you wait in vain for a summons to the telephone. When you get home, your father says, " Yes, he did call, and he will ' phone again tomorrow. " Oh, no, how can you stand the suspense? The next day the ' phone rings. You race to answer it, but then you stand over it, and let it ring several times. (Mustn ' t appear too anxious, you know.) The voice on the other end of the line says he will pick you up at about eight thirty that evening. You spend the rest of the day getting your dress ready, worrying with your hair and generally creating confusion in the house. Time drags by and seven thirty comes. As you dress, you wonder for the millionth time, " What will he be like? " Suppose he ' s another Frankenstein? Suppose he ' s an absolute drip who never opens his mouth? Suppose he can ' t dance? Suppose he ' s only five feet tall? Suppose . . . But finally the door-bell rings. You go to answer it and meet him. Your fears and misgivings vanish. You get to the party, and in what seems like about ten minutes, it ' s three o ' clock in the morning. You ' ve had a wonderful time. But then a horrible thought — " What does he think of you? " Lydia Ebel, Form Science VI, Barclay House. THE ROYAL UNICORN The story of a unicorn As told by him one summer morn; — " A handsome fellow, O was I; At first I thought that I might fly. I tried, but found I had no wings. So turned for fun to other things. I thought that I must be a fish. But water just was not my dish. I tried to be a mountain goat. But thin air caused my head to float. Alas! Alack! O woe! I thought — I wish to be what I am not. O — destined I from night ' til morn To be a lowly unicorn. And then one day a princess passed. She looked, she smiled, and said, ' At last I ' ve found a creature with one horn. My coat of arms he will adorn. ' So now instead of roaming free, I help in regal pageantry. And now instead, from night ' til morn, I am the Royal Unicorn! " Janet Rutherford, Form IVb, Gumming Ho ise. [19] PREFERENCE I love the rain in all her forms; In pattering showers, in violent storms, In bouncing hail, in driving sleet, ' Round glowing lamps in a long dark street. I hate the dread monotony of sun: His piercing eye, which burns through all he sees. He hides a secret, too, that dazzling one; For when we search his face, he blinds us. These Are ample faults for me to bear, but still I know one more. The sun is also vain. For when we turn away from him, we will. In everything we see, see him again. Katama Bonthron, Form IVb, Fairley House. TRAP ' S GYM VERY LIVING thing has a heart, the core of its being; and the heart of -LJ Trafalgar is its Gym. On entering its doors anyone the least bit sensitive to such things can feel the tradition bound up in its walls. It is a friendly room and has looked after generations of girls now, girls in bloomers and middle blouses, girls in longish tunics, and girls in shorts and teddy-blouses. It witnesses most of our joys, and some of our sorrows, and it knows everything that is going on in the school. It welcomes wide-eyed little girls on their first day of school, and reluctantly says good-bye to a white-robed flower-bedecked sixth form, each June. A few of the girls who grew up in the Gym have left their names there on honour rolls, cups, or shields, but most of them have left their intangible presence which may or may not be felt by their younger sisters. The main function of the Gym is, not surprisingly, gymnastics. Traf was the first private school in Montreal to have a gym instructress, and its Gym and gym demonstrations have always been a source of great pride to Traf, never more so than today. Basketball, our chief school sport, is also coached here, and the Gym has witnessed many victories and defeats. The Gym is also Traf ' s assembly hall. It is here we come for prayers each morning, here we sit tremblingly for mark reading and results of competitions or games, here we learn of our successes and failures, here we listen to speeches from friends of the school, here stand to acknowledge our bad marks: here all announcements of interest to the school are made. In other words, the life blood of the school flows through this room. Another subject taught here is singing, which is especially featured in our Christmas Carol service, an annual event, and one enjoyed by both parents and girls. The Gym is often seen in party dress, for Hallowe ' en parties. Movie Shows, and the Sixth Form Graduation Dance. Then it takes on a festive [20] [21] mood, and girls in rustling formals dance with handsome young men, but from its gleaming floor to its top-most beam, it is still the same Gym. Very soon our class will have our last closing at Traf, but each one of us knows that we will receive a warm silent welcome when we come back to visit the Gym. Louise Dupont, Form Arts VI, Barclay House. " CLASS-ICAL " RHYME A is tor Armstrong, the belle oi our class, £ is lor Brooks, she ' s quite a lass! c is tor Cam, our form mistress she be.

" IT WAS A sparkling sunny January morn, and the blue- white snow looked so-o-o inviting — from under my pile of quilts and blankets! I said to myself — " Joyce, you ' ve got to learn to ski sometime. It can ' t be that hard — just sliding down a hill on a couple of sticks! " (I wish that I had eaten those words right then and there.) [22 1 I delicately suggested to my ski-pro hostess in a small voice that I might like to learn to ski today, whereupon she bounded heartily out of bed with encouraging squeals and sounds to phone her ski-pro friends and inform them of my noble intentions. After consuming a dainty breakfast, and clothed in my swank new " Irving " ski-suit, I was sauntering out to the breezeway to look for a couple of suitable " sticks " , when my hostess attacked my elegant costume with piles of woolly garments. When the dust had cleared, I found myself doubting slightly whether I would ever be able to emerge from my cocoon of wool, but brushed aside all such irrelevant thoughts. After all, a few clothes wouldn ' t make the slightest difference to my skiing potential, would they? I was just beginning to perceive the tiniest doubt way back in my mind, but by this time, my self-appointed instructor had arrived and was champing at the bit, so there was no excuse for not going ahead with my plans. My long narrow feet were rudely thrust into short, wide lumps of unresisting leather, which someone called " beautiful Swiss ski-boots " . I kept my opinion of those " beautiful Swiss ski-boots " to myself, and clomped outside where the skis were waiting, reposing docilely on the path. Somehow the day didn ' t seem quite so sparkly as it had before, and I was sure I detected a blizzard coming over some not-too-distant mountains, but upon mentioning this, I was quickly informed that a blizzard would really liven up the skiing conditions. Myself and the skis became one, fastened together with a steel harness. I was given a couple of ski-poles and told to wait down at the end of the path. I could see that getting there was going to be a major accomplishment for me, but I bravely gave a small push with the ski-poles. I moved! How exciting! This was really an invigorating sport! Gently coasting along the path, I perceived my feet getting wider and wider apart, so I lifted one ski over to join the other. Somehow, their extremities became crossed, and I found myself " sur mon derriere " with two legs and skis entangled underneath me. Amidst peals of hearty laughter, I rewound myself back to starting position again. My instructor then took charge, and sent the others off to " pack the trails " while we were to practise on the gentle slope behind the house. The " gentle " slope didn ' t strike me as being too navigable, but I was determined to keep going. My fears were slightly assuaged, however, when I found myself describing huge circles on a flat field at the bottom of the slope. This was explained to me as " getting the feel of skis " , so I took it in my stride and spent the morning describing one symmetrical figure after another on the snowy field. My dainty breakfast had ceased to exist long ago, and hunger pains were creeping up and down my esophagus, but no food was forthcoming, and we apparently didn ' t want to waste any daylight, so I didn ' t complain. My instructor introduced me to the gentle slope by teaching me to climb it sideways. Since I moved a maximum of six inches with every step, I didn ' t reach the top until midafternoon, having suffered many " little spills " . Now, I thought, the sport would really begin, and I felt like a captive pigeon, ready and poised for instant flight. My enchanting thoughts were [23] cut off by a familiar slave-driving voice, and I was told to " snowplow " down the hill; this consisting of placing the feet as far apart as possible, " toes pointing in, knees bent, head up, back straight, ski-poles out behind, elbows close to the ribs, " and many other admonitions. Off I went with the help of a slight push from the rear. I tried to do everything he had said, but my teacher kept shouting " slower " or " faster " and other warnings, and suddenly I knew I was going to fall and break my neck. A tree sprang up out of nowhere. What was I to do? Go around? Over? Through? Jump? Turn? But how? The last I heard was some horrible cackling laughter before I succumbed to a blessed blackness. The next I knew, it was a sparkling sunny January morn again, and the new-fallen snow looked very inviting until — I moved — " Oh! My aching back! " Joyce Rubbra, Form Science VI, Ross House. THAT SPECIAL HOUR While souls amid the restless city rush. Amid last toils and duties of the day. The scarlet west creates a certain hush. O ' er green hills and meadows far away, A bell tolls soft and sweet. The countryside Ceases at once its labours and its run And stops to hear the beating of the tide. And birds ' last chantings to the sinking sun. For in this peaceful hour one may pause Considering all the follies of the day While waiting for the moon and her sweet cause Which is to tuck the wearied ones away; Oh pity those poor souls of cities ' power. Those souls who can ' t enjoy the special hour. Helen Holbrook, Form Science VI, Barclay House. THE CLOVER FIELD From the gate you look on a field of mauve Rustling in the breeze. From there you smell the clover scent And watch the working bees. Further on by the wooden fence You stop at a laughing stream. And watch it circle through the field As carefree as a dream. Still further on along the lane Gay daisies can be seen. And swaying to and fro so calm Are willows fresh and green. [24 1 While standing there and gazing long Upon this rare delight, You know that He alone has planned This tranquil, wondrous sight. Maralyn Leask, Form Science VI, Fairley House. THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF RADIO AS YOU know, radios are very handy things to have around the house. You can set the clock by them, for they always have the right time. The radio also helps you decide what to wear, for if the announcer says that it is going to rain you know that it isn ' t going to rain and so you don ' t wear a raincoat. No one would know where to buy anything or what to buy if it weren ' t for the radio. If you have a headache you can turn on the radio, and nine times out of ten you hear a man ' s voice which tells you to run right down to the corner drugstore and get a package of Bromo-Seltzer, and so you do, and of course in ten minutes your headache is all better. This proves that radio is a benefit to health! What a boon radio is to all poor tired housewives as they go about their daily tasks of drudgery! They can hear the loveliest singing commercials which always help to make the household brighter. Think of all the fat ladies who become beautiful and slim again by exercising to the music and the smooth voice of the announcer. And think of all the soap operas which bring such pleasure to the average home: for example, Mary arrives home from school and sees her Mother weeping in front of the radio. Mary asks the reason and Mother wails that John ' s Newfoundland dog doesn ' t love Sue ' s toy poodle any more. Mother says she is too upset to make dinner, so poor Mary goes hungry. These are a few of the pleasures radio brings to the average housewife! Think of all the jobs that have been left unfinished or undone because of the radio, and think of all the dinners which have been burnt because someone was too engrossed in listening to the radio to attend to them. Pity the people with colds and wet feet because they faithfully followed the weather reports which said " Sunny " , and it rained. Think of all the envy that is caused by listening to a radio quiz program where the prize is a nineteen-fifty-three Cadillac, a few houses and two or thre e mink coats. Pity the people who have to eat that horrible breakfast food in order to collect five hundred box-tops so that Junior can send away for his Junior G-Man Badge. Lastly, pity poor Father who had to spend his hard earned money to pay for the radio and has to spend his spare time listening to daughter ' s screeching jazz, junior ' s murderous thrillers, and wife ' s wishy-washy soap operas. I ' ll bet that poor Father wishes he had never even bought a radio. Kathleen Barr, Form Arts VI, Ross House. [25] NOCTURNE Night comes . . . With all her still grandeur and Stately quiet speed. Her shadows float from corners — Daylight havens — and Fold about the city Melting into nothingness of black and purple. Peace comes . . . The sleepy lamplit city, Tranquil at last, yawns Her final yellow windows And slumbers. Serenity . . . silence comes . . . The crescent moon peeks soundlessly Upon the shining, snow-clad streets. And then Continues her passage. Weaving between the flashing stars. Swimming in a stream of molten gold Towards her port, the far-etched horizon. There to rest — Until another day is passed And once more She surveys her world — her empire — Brimming with an Empress ' pride And hope and tenderness. Carolyn Grossmann, Form Vb, Cumming House.

Je les commence, I ' esprit errant. Apres un temps, quand j ' y pense Finalement, a mes devoirs, Le telephone sonne ! Ce n ' est qu ' Hortense — " Quelles sont, " dit-elle, " les leQons de ce soir? " J ' en ai bientot fini avec le telephone. Me voici encore assise, prete a etudier. Que c ' est fatiguant! On en donne Trop de devoirs! Je vais me coucher. Benita Haslett, Form IVb, Fairley House. L ' ETANG D ' ARGENT ES OMBRES du soir s ' etaient allongees quand nous atteignimes notre I destination. Les grands arbres formaient un dais vert par dessus nos tetes. Les fleurs d ' un cotonnier rouge qui etaient tombees etendaient leur beau tapis d ' automne et, au centre, se deployait I ' etang, avec ses eaux obscures, sur lesquelles des fleurs blanches flottaient et peignaient une scene d ' un autre monde. Parmi les plantes aquatiques on voyait divers poissons qui sautaient partout. Des petits points de lumiere du soleil qui accrochaient au vol leurs ecailles, transformaient ces petits poissons en pieces d ' argent. Comme nous restions debout a regarder fixement, avec admiration, ce spectacle unique, le soleil plongea graduellement derriere les collines. Autour de nous, nous entendions les oiseaux aussi bien que les animaux qui s ' appretaient pour la nuit. Les oiseaux qui avaient ete si bavards peu a peu devinrent plus tranquilles. Le crepuscule s ' approfondit, et des collines eloignees vinrent I ' aboie- ment d ' un chacal ou le " tu-whit — tu-whoo " d ' un hibou. C ' etaient les seuls bruits qui briserent le silence profond du soir. Le ciel d ' un bleu noir par dessus nos tetes fut bientot constelle d ' etoiles, qui brillaient et etincelaient a I ' infini. Avec la fuite du soleil, I ' etang avait change aussi. Ces eaux n ' etaient plus aussi charmantes mais leur obscurite meme avait un air sinistre. Tout a coup une transformation soudaine se realisa. La lune sortit, repandit son rayonnement lumineux sur la terre, et metamorphosa d ' une maniere feerique les branches des arbres de sa lumiere argentee. Elizabeth Brooks, Form Vb, Gumming House. [28] UNE EXCURSION A LA RIVIERE SAGUENAY J ' AVAIS SOUVENT entendu parler de la riviere Saguenay, de son histoire et de sa beaute. Ainsi, quand on m ' offrit un voyage sur ce cours d ' eau celebre je I ' ai accepte tout de suite. Nous sommes montes sur le traversier Riviere du Loup. Avant d ' arriver a la riviere Saguenay, nous avons passe le temps a chanter et a danser. Tout le monde a pris part aux belles chansons et aux danses carrees canadiennes franga ises et nous nous sommes bien amuses. Enfin, apres plusieurs heures sur le fleuve St. Laurent, nous sommes arrives a Tadoussac. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas restes la longtemps, mais nous avons commence a remonter la riviere Saguenay. Les premiers habitants de cette region etaient les indiens Montagnais, qui Font appellee Saguenay ou " fleuve de mort " . Jamais plus large que trois-quart de mille, la riviere glisse entre des forets tranquilles ou encore entre des collines desertes et rocheuses. Les montagnes se dressent au dessus de I ' eau et c ' est si etroit qu ' on pense pouvoir les toucher. En fait, quand nous sommes arrives au Cap Trinite le bateau a passe si pres du rocher que plusieurs des voyageurs ont essaye de I ' atteindre avec des pierres. Le Cap Trinite est une falaise qui se dresse en trois degres jusqu ' a quinze cent pieds au dessus de Feau. II y a une statue de la Sainte Vierge de trente-six pieds qui est le temoignage de recon- naissance d ' un pauvre voyageur qui fut sauve pendant Fhiver, des eaux glacees du Saguenay. A cet endroit la, le capitaine fait siffler la sirene du bateau et nous avons entendu de profonds echos. Alors, le bateau a rebrousse chemin et nous sommes revenus vers le has de la riviere. A Tadoussac ou un vieux poste de commerce est etabli par la compagnie de la Baie d ' Hudson, nous nous sommes arretes une heure. La nous avons vu la plus vieille eglise du Canada. C ' est un joli et bizarre edifice. Nous avons vu aussi Fhotel Tadoussac, grand et luxueux. Nous avons rendu visite a nos amies qui travaillent comme serveuses. Puis, nous avons fait une promenade dans la ville et subitement nous avons entendu la sirene du bateau. Nous avons commence a courir sur la route quand le capitaine dans une auto nous a dep asses. A ce point une caleche boiteuse est venue vers nous, et tous ensemble nous sommes montes dans cette petite voiture. Quand nous sommes arrives, nous nous sommes precipites sur le bateau au moment ou Fon retirait les cables. Le voyage de retour etait commence. En partant nous pouvions voir les vastes bancs de sable, blancs dans le clair de lune. C ' etait un beau paysage que ma derniere vue de Tadoussac, de la riviere Saguenay. J ' espere que je pourrai les visiter encore. Judy Liersch, Form Arts VI, Fairley House. LES MAINS OCCUPEES ON TROUVE des mains actives partout. Elles veulent toutes accomplir quelque chose. Voici les mains de la mere qui prepare le diner pour les enfants. Voila les mains du pere qui finit son travail au bureau. Les mains nerveuses appar- tiennent aux ecoliers qui veulent reussir leurs examens. Les enfants dans le [29] pare ont des mains joyeuses parce qu ' ils sont tres heureux et aiment jouer a la balle. Dans les hopitaux les mains des gardes-malades sont aussi occupees, et tres douces, mais peut-etre les mains des docteurs sont plus importantes. Les mains des musiciens donnent au monde des melodies magnifiques. Mes mains sont toujours occupees a ecrire et a faire mes devoirs. Voila I ' histoire des mains de tous, je suis certaine que chacune fera un excellent travail. Barbara Armbruster, Form Upper II, Barclay House. LE PETIT OISEAU Le petit oiseau Est dans sa cage. II est tres joli. II est tres sage. II aime a chanter Mais pas a danser, Son nom est Dickee. Alison Beattie, Upper II, Ross House. [30] A WINTER NIGHT The winter world in whitened stillness lies, The cold moon ' s beams reflect the stark white snow, The howling wind of day is quiet and still, And the mist o ' er the far-off hills is low. The snow is gently falling o ' er the earth, Trees and roofs are carpeted with white, The lone owl hoots to his own far- ' way mate; In the stillness of a winter night. Silence reigns profound o ' er all the earth, And through the falling snow, a greyish white. One sees a specimen of Nature ' s wonder. In the still beauty of a winter night. Anne Begor, Form II, Gumming House. A MUSICAL EXPERIENCE This won third prize in the second age group (11-14) in a contest sponsored by the Young People s Symphony Concerts. A FEW YEARS ago, while they were on their tour of Canada, I went to see the Sadler ' s Wells Ballet Company in a performance of " Swan Lake " . I thought Tchaikovsky ' s music to it was wonderful. It seemed to tell the story in its own words. For instance, during the first scene, when the peasants were dancing, the music was gay and happy. When the prince arrived, a fanfare of trumpets was sounded and the music became more majestic. When he was hunting in the forest, it changed again to a more mysterious tone. I closed my eyes, and could still picture the trees swaying in the breeze, and the gloom that surrounded them. The music continued to change to fit each part of the story until the end. I shall never forget that wonderful experience as long as I live. Elisabeth McKay, Form II, Ross House. [31] MY BROTHER My brother says he ' d like to be A sailor sailing on the sea. At times he ' d rather be a guard, But a soldier ' s life is awfully hard. Sometimes he thinks he ' ll live out west, A cowboy, riding in his best. Oh! That ' s the life that would suit me. A cowgirl ' s what I ' m going to be. Harriet Dupont, Remove, Age 71 . AUTUMN Silver trees with golden leaves Whispering in the Autumn breeze; Golden trees with ruby leaves Whispering to the silver trees. The sun is sinking in the west. And all the world is now at rest. Eve Krupski, Upper I. A SEA MYTH A S J E ANNIE pranced along the beach, a colourful towel over her arm, she thought what a wonderful day it would be to lie on the hot golden sand and gaze up into the cloudless sky that seemed to stretch for miles around her. Suddenly she heard strains of beautiful music, which came from the sea. It reminded her of the music-box that she treasured so dearly. Then the music ceased, and, coming up from the foam, was a Mermaid, her long curls glistening in the sun. " Jeannie, " called the Mermaid, " would you like to come swimming with me? " " Why — why I ' d be delighted, " replied Jeannie, plunging into the water. They held hands, and then, very unexpectedly, the Mermaid pulled Jeannie down, down, down. Down they went to the ocean ' s bottom. Once there Jeannie stared, stared very hard at all the queer sea creatures crawling along the ocean ' s floor, and hundreds of fishes darting past her, all different shapes and sizes. She just stood there, speechless. Finally she forced words to her lips: " Oh, how beautiful! " she cried, looking down at a little Mer child who stood there beside her. The Mer child had long golden curls like most of her companions. There were bits of sea-weed woven into a bracelet around her tiny wrist, and from the waist down she had a fish ' s tail with every colour of the rainbow in it. " Would you like to visit the castle? " asked the Mermaid. " It ' s the most magnificent castle in the world, where King Neptune and the Queen live. " [32] " Let us go now, then, " coaxed Jeannie, bursting with curiosity. They swam through the water, the Mermaid leading. A baby octopus gUded past them. It sent a shiver up Jeannie ' s spine, as its legs carefully closed around a water plant. But they swam on, and finally reached the castle. It was indeed magnificent; coral, ranging from the purest white to the deepest pink surrounded it. They mounted the steps and entered an enormous room. " This is the Pearl room, " said the Mermaid, walking to the far end of the room. " The walls are made from the inside of hundreds of oyster shells, and the carving, " she said pointing to the ceiling, " is the finest in the sea, and the pearls set in the floors were donated by the Oyster Family. This castle has fifty chambers including the throne room, which is of course the loveliest, but we ' ll talk about that later. The room we will visit next is known as the Coral room. " Just as they left the Pearl room, Jeannie glanced out of the window. An Angel Fish floated by, silver in colour. " Isn ' t Mr. Angel Fish lovely, " gasped Jeannie. " Lovely, " echoed the Mermaid. That was the last word she heard spoken by the Mermaid, for right then and there a strange thing happened. Jeannie found herself floating out of the window and through the icy waters. She shivered slightly as she opened her eyes. The sun had set behind the mountains, and cast a ghostly shadow over the land. She rubbed her eyes and stood up, looking at the breakers rolling in one after the other on the quiet shore. " Oh, I ' ve missed my swim, " she wailed, " and besides that I woke up in the middle of my dream and missed the trip through the Undersea Castle. " Laureen Hicks, Form II, Fairley House. OUR WORLD ' Tis a wonderful world we live in. To work or play all day. From morn ' s first call, till evening ' s shades Of crimson or darkest gray. ' Tis wonderful at the seashore. To sail to splash and swim. Or to build a sandy castle With a clam-shell trim. ' Tis wonderful at the country To climb up in a tree. With a chain of yellow buttercups Like a Hawaiian lei. ' Tis a wonderful world we live in With the forest animals near, A pet cat, or a puppy. And birds with their songs of cheer. Laureen Hicks, Form II, Fairley House. [33] A DAY IN LONDON E LEFT the Hyde Park Hotel after breakfast, called a taxi, and asked the driver to take us to Buckingham Palace. We turned around in the middle of the street, and drove along on the wrong side of the road. We joined the crowd in time to see the Changing of the Guard. First a company of soldiers came and relieved the old guard. They wore busbies, with scarlet jackets and navy blue trousers. Fortunately one of the bobbies let me come to the front and take a picture of the guard reading the rules of the day. As we were leaving, we saw Viscount Alexander drive into the palace. After the Changing of the Guard, we went to see the famous waxworks at Madame Tussaud ' s. As we entered I asked the girl how much the tickets were, but she did not answer. Then I realized that she was a dummy. I felt so stupid. The wax figures were very lifelike. We saw the Royal Family, a lot of other royal people, and Barbara Anne Scott. As we were leaving. Daddy asked a bobbie the way out, but he was wax too. Alison Beattie, Upper H, Ross House. THE SEA TRIP We went aboard the Tarsian, On a Thursday afternoon. To sail across the ocean blue In the merry month of June. We passed Quebec and Murray Bay, And Father Point as well. And soon were tossing in the gulf Where seas began to swell. We met some very jolly folk. The Captain, Chief and crew. And saw some whales and porpoises, And other liners too. The cook made me a birthday cake. When we passed Bishop Rock, And soon we sailed up to the Thames And into London Dock. Elaine Speirs, Upper 1. [34] HAPPY THOUGH A PRISONER by B. A. Bird I am a happy little bird. My house is in a cage. I swing upon a shiny bar, So I can see just who you are. And when the pussy cat goes by, I simply sit and wink my eye. I know no harm will come to me Because of my security. Cages are safe — or haven ' t you heard? That ' s why I ' m such a happy bird. Ann Hawkins, Form II, Ross House. THE LONELY BUNNY ONCE UPON a time there lived a little rabbit. Now this little rabbit was not very happy, because he had no mother or father. He didn ' t even have a name! One day, as he was running about in the meadow, he saw the bushes move. Quickly he began to run towards his home. He looked over his shoulder and saw a huge terrible wolf running behind him! He ran home just in time. His teeth were still chattering an hour later. He was still unhappy because he had no playmate. Just then he turned and he saw another bunny looking very unhappy. He asked this unhappy bunny if he would like to play with him. He said, " Yes " . So they both are very, very, very happy. Sheena Brydon, Lower I, Age 9. SWEETIE THE ELF I know a little elf; A sweet little elf. He always goes for walks. And when he goes for walks He meets his little friends And then he plays with them. Patricia McKay, Preparatory, Age 7i . [35] THE STREAM There is a stream not for away Where the breezes softly play, And the willow bows its head O ' er the sparkling streamlet bed. Where at night the moon shines low, Making the silvery waters glow. And the owls hoot overhead. Whilst others are asleep in bed. I love to spend the summer days Playing in the leafy ways. Or fishing in the friendly dawn. Catching whales — or only spawn! Elisabeth McKay, Form II, Ross House. A DUCK A duck sails on the water And he can swim and float. Just like an ocean steamer or A great big ferry boat. A duck has feet like paddles. That push him fast and slow. He wiggles them right under him. And that ' s what makes him go.

With Mrs. Prieur ' s explanations, we can sit down and really appreciate and understand the music of the greatest composers. Sometimes we hear records which tell of the lives of famous composers. These narratives have the music of the composer in the background, and in this way one can remember more easily who wrote what. Another feature of the musical appreciation class is the Fourth Form scrapbook contest. Each girl in the form makes a music scrapbook throughout the year, and the owner of the best receives a prize in June. The girls put a lot of work into these scrapbooks, and I ' m sure that they obtain a great deal of pleasure from them, and lots of musical knowledge besides. The prize was won last year by Lyn Sheward, and a special prize was awarded to Ann Packham for her wonderful work of illustrating folk songs; other girls received honourable mentions. I ' m sure everyone enjoys these classes as much as I do, and we all hope that Mrs. Prieur will continue to teach music appreciation at Trafalgar for many years to come. Although not directly connected with the music appreciation course at Trafalgar, the Young People ' s Symphony Concerts, directed by Dr. Wilfred Pelletier, and of which Mrs. Prieur is a committee member, are well attended by a large number of our girls. Vicky Cumyn, Vb, Fairley House. [38] 1 1 n n 1 " 1 n j 11 All f P SCHOOL DONATIONS THANKS ARE due to the girls of Trafalgar School. Annually they have fulfilled their obligation of $140 to the Children ' s Memorial Hospital for the support of the Trafalgar Cot. The girls have always considered the needs of under-privileged children, and a donation of $75 was sent to the Save the Children Fund. As active members of the Junior Red Cross, the girls contributed $65 to the Far East campaign. At Christmas this year, a tree was set up in the lower corridor for the veterans of Queen Mary ' s Hospital. These gifts were personally distributed by five of the prefects, who are shown so doing in the two photographs on this page. A $25 donation was also sent to the Salvation Army. Following the annual visit of the Red Feather canvasser, $68 was collected for the Welfare Federation.

Miss Ullrich is in charge, and the four elected House Representatives, Vicky Cumyn, Carolyn Grossmann, Margaret Peters, and Cathy Stokes have given her their full support. The Red Cross Inter-High School Council controls all the activities. Each school has two representatives on this Council. Janet LeDain, the financial chairman, and Carolyn Grossmann, who is on the editorial board of the High News, both attend. The main features of our Red Cross program are knitted and sewn garments for needy children in foreign countries. Owing to the marvellous efforts of the girls, an abundance of these has been turned in. They certainly will be appreciated ! The annual sale of Red Cross Calendars with the Queen ' s picture on them was considered quite successful, over three hundred being sold. Each year the junior Red Cross Inter-High School Council takes on certain projects to which the Montreal schools contribute. One objective this year was to buy the Antweiler Microelectrophoresis apparatus, costing $1900, to give aid to cerebral palsy children. In order to raise money for this apparatus, the girls organized enjoyable sandwich and fudge sales. The annual Red Cross Variety Review was a big hit again this year. For the first time Trafalgar was represented by our talented Margaret Milne who sang extremely well. In school fifty tickets were sold. Janet LeDain was ticket convenor. We must not forget to mention Trafalgar ' s one hundred percent enrolment. Congratulations! Keep it up. The best of luck to each Red Cross worker next year, and don ' t forget your motto " I Serve " . [41] THE ART ROOM Since the arrival of Miss Capel, the art room has been buzzing with activity. Wonders never seem to cease, and Miss Capel has a never-ending string of ideas. The surrounding pictures show a few of these. (1) A still life piece. (2) The puppet show. (3) Amazing and extreme- ly attractive head- dresses. (4) Various art exhibits. (5) Tooling leather. (6) A square dance poster by Form II. (7) Preparatory ' s circus. This great variety of work was excellently displayed on several occasions for the parents and friends to see. THE HOUSES BARCLAY HOUSE ' Tende bene et alta pete ' ' THIS YEAR Barclay was very lucky in its group of new girls. They have been very enthusiastic and hard working. The theme of the House Competition was the celebration of religious festivals in the past and present. Barclay chose the Passover. Through the hard work and co-operation of the whole House, we were lucky enough to win a slight edge over the other Houses. Many girls in Barclay won Stars, " G " badges and Honourable Mentions. We also had several girls on the basketball teams. Judy Brow was our First Team representative, and Marjorie Blair, Judy Bennett and Kristin Liersch were all on the Second Team. Margaret Peters worked very hard as a score- keeper. We would also like to thank Margaret for her work as our Red Cross Representative. Judy Brow has also been a great help as Fifth Form Representative. Our special thanks go to Miss Stansfield for her most welcome advice and support. We wish each member of Barclay House good luck, happiness and great success in the coming years. We would like to thank each one of you individually for your efforts on behalf of the House and particularly to congratulate you on your working so well together as a friendly team. Best of everything in the future, Lydia and Louise. CUMMING HOUSE Facta nan verba ' WE WELCOME all the new girls who have 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 especially appreciate the fine work of many of our junior members this year, and also extend thanks to Caryl Churchill and Sandra Keymer who both registered over a hundred points at the end of the first term. A great deal of our time and interest went into the House Competition, and although we only managed to obtain the " booby prize " everyone enjoyed working on the project. [43] Our only representative on the first basketball team was Marilyn Barrie, while on the second team we had Pearl Chaisson and Elizabeth Brooks. We now look forward to the Inter-House Basketball matches, and to Field Day. The Heads of Gumming House would like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Cam for her help and encouragement, and we wish the girls of Gumming great success in the years to come. Marilyn Barrie Sue Birks FAIRLEY HOUSE ' ' Service before self THIS YEAR the houses have been very active, and Fairley too has con- tributed to the general hustle and bustle of the House Competitions, Red Gross work, reading, spelling bee, and general knowledge test. After watching Fairley girls for over half a year, we have formed our list of virtues for the two different types of model house members. The first type is an athlete — she is on the basketball team, and very likely received a " G " badge, star or honourable mention for her good gym work. She is a terrific knitter and sewer, producing for the Red Gross at least two pairs of socks and a dressing gown per term. Occasionally, if she has time, she will struggle through a long and tedious book. The second type is a brain — she studies hard, receiving house points for her marks, and at the same time reads many of the books suggested on the book list. Occasionally, if she has the time, she too will struggle, but this time through a dress for the Red Gross, although sewing is far from her favourite hobby. During the first term, both these types had bad marks, but during the second term one of them, having learned by experience, had no bad marks. They are model members, but not quite angels! Both these types proved themselves to be enthusiastic and co-operative workers, especially during the house competition. The first type collected the costumes and the second helped paint scenery on Saturday morning. At the end of the first term, Fairley placed second (by a slim margin) and we would like to congratulate our many model house members, and express our thanks to Mrs. Leonard for her loyal support. We are proud of Fairley and of the girls in it, and hope that the house will continue to keep up its good reputation. Good luck to next year ' s house heads, and to Fairley always. Judy Liersch Marjorie-Ann Payette [44] ROSS HOUSE ' Suaviter in more, fortiter in re " A HE ARTY welcome to all the newcomers to Ross from us oldsters! We hope that you will carry on the traditional high standards, as we have tried to do. For the Annual House Competition, a dramatization of various religious festivals, Ross chose the Easter season. The origin of Easter was portrayed by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and the present-day celebration was depicted by a simple church scene. A lot of time and effort were put into our production, but we bow to Barclay for their clever staging of The Passover. Christmas comes but once a year, and this Christmas Ross didn ' t do quite as well as she has been known to, but we are currently working very hard to pull up to the other houses. A great many house points were earned by the hard-working girls of the basketball teams. Ross was well represented, with Kathy Barr, Peta Hunt, Lyn Scott, Sue Redpath and Beth Whittall on the First Team, and Morven Mcllquham, Sherrill Mowat, and Joyce Rubbra on the Second Team. Congratulations to all the athletes from Ross with brand new Stars, " G " badges and honourable mentions. Keep up the stiff work! We ' d like to present a few of Ross ' private stars to such girls as Pamela Bolton for her tireless work on Red Cross sewing and knitting. Sue Redpath for her much-needed help throughout the House Competition, Peta Hunt for her good work in athletics, Diana Ardagh and Morven Mcllquham for their high marks and numerous house points. Our warmest appreciation to Miss Harvie for her help and interest throughout the year. Our position may be lowly, but our spirit is in the heights! Good luck, Ross, Janet and Joyce PREFECTS From left to right: Marilyn Barrie, Louise Dupont, Lydia Ebel, Susan Birks, Maralyn Leask, Beth WhiUall, Judy Liersch, Joyce Rubbra, Janet LeDain.

[55] SPECIAL EVENTS HALLOWE ' EN PARTY THE GYM was gaily decorated with pumpkins, cats, and skeletons. It was the night of ghosts, and the Sixth Form was giving the annual Hallowe ' en party for the Boarders. Strange " things " started to slink arou nd. For entertainment a movie was shown which provided an opportunity to use the new movie projector. The first reel looked rather silly, as the syn- chronization was anything but perfect, but everything went smoothly after that. Prizes were awarded to Ann Kampouris in a very clever costume depicting music, Louise Viney as a devil, Sharon Baly as a butterfly, and Fotini Perivolaris and Shirley- Anne Gobeil as Little Miss Muffet and the spider. We hope the Boarders enjoyed the party as much as we enjoyed giving it. Peggy Long, Arts VI, Barclay House. CHRISTMAS CAROL SINGING THE CHRISTMAS Carol Singing this year was a mammoth success. In the gym the atmosphere was happy and festive. Dressed in their crisp white dresses, the entire school breathed an air of subdued excitement and rustling. This was to be a Carol Singing every bit as good as last year ' s, and, if t he girls had their way, even better. A great addition to the program was the Pageant of the Nativity. This was divided into five scenes portraying by characters and explaining by appropriate songs the Manger, Angels, Shepherds, Kings, and finally The Holy Child. The paper costumes, both ingenious and amusing, were a great source of interest. These were all made of brilliantly dyed paper, constructed by some of our diligent sixth and fifth form students with the invaluable aid of that delightful modern invention — the stapler. The proud originators modelled their respective creations against a silhouetted background of the Holy City at night. This scene, superbly done with various tones of soft blue predominating, gave a quality of peace and quiet to the tableau, as well as one of almost hushed mystery. A silent cheer echoes in the hearts of all Traf-ites for Miss Capel and her Special Art Class, who at the expense of a considerable amount of elbow- grease and time (as well as some paint-smudged faces) produced so effective a masterpiece. Many of the selections which accompanied the Tableau were old favourites without which no Carol Singing is complete. Some, however, were new to the audience, and both types were very well received. One of the highlights of the evening, a French carol " D ' oii Viens-Tu Bergere? " was sung with Margaret Milne, a talented member of the fifth form, as soloist. Another song, especially popular with the girls, was sung with great gusto and enthusiasm which showed how they enjoyed the whole affair — this was " On This Day Earth Shall Ring " by Gustav Hoist. All in all, the perfect quotation for the performance is " . . . and a good time was had by all " . In closing, it should be said that the place of honour in remembrances should go to Mrs. Meek, who worked very hard and quickly to prepare us for the occasion. Everyone felt that she had done a splendid job. Also thanks are due to the audience for their co-operation, and encouraging, enthusiastic support. Carolyn Grossmann, Form Vb, Cumming House. [56] JANUARY 30TH " Thirty more minutes till zero hour. How can I wait? I ' m all dressed up now — I hope he ' s not late!! " Said one of Traf ' s seniors, heaving a sigh, As the time for departure drew threat ' ningly nigh. The affair, of course, was Traf ' s annual ball. And I ' m here to tell you it wasn ' t easy at all. There were weeks of preparing and long months of woe. What decorations? And specially which beau? " Winter wonderland " we decided at last Would be the decor — but we had to work fast! Couldn ' t study of course — hadn ' t the time. Two tests tomorrow, ain ' t it a crime? And at home it was worse — our parents went mad. Till all were relieved — there ' s only one " Grad " ! The committees, of course, had so much to do. For tickets, refreshments, and orchestra too. The day finally came, and then we discovered The work wasn ' t in vain, and all had recovered. So here we give tribute to T.O.G.A., And the people who gave us this mem ' rable day. The dance was what we all hoped it would be. And we ' ll always remember our GRAD ' 53. Wendy Haymatv, Arts VI, Ross House. [57] [58] OUR MISS BROOKS OUR MISS BROOKS presides quietly and efficiently over the secretarial desk at Trafalgar. It is she who has the enviable right of perusing all examinations weeks before they are given, and many ' s the time when we ' ve all been tempted to ask for " just a peek " , but never had quite enough intes- tinal fortitude. Miss Brooks is a " Jack of all trades " , from answering the ever-ringing telephone and looking after the mail, to running a little lost and found department where errant house pins and fountain pens are wont to stray. She keeps the bad mark book up to date, and makes out those horrible Tuesday morning lists, as well as entering all the attendance and dinner lists. Miss Brooks is always available for pinch-hitting when a teacher is absent, and listens sympathetically to the tales of aches and pains when we want to go home to mother and bed. We wish to pay tribute to Miss Brooks, for all her friendliness and capable work at Trafalgar. We hope she ' ll stay on for many years, that is, unless some nice Mr. Boynton wants to carry her off. In any case, we wish her every success in whatever the future holds for " Our Miss Brooks " . J. R., Science VI, Ross House. AWARDS THE TRAFALGAR CUP The Trafalgar Cup, 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 awarded last year to Mary Cliff.

Already in their places, the anxious parents and friends waited patiently for the much talked about • event. The " dem " had been the main topic of conversation at school, too, for many weeks, as a successful performance entails hard and enthusiastic work on everyone ' s part. Besides the class prac- tices, it meant afternoon tumbling and vaulting practices, discussions about costumes and many a sore, aching back and muscle for the first week or so. The whole evening was a success, however, and our efforts, we finally decided, were not in vain. The first item on the programme was the folk-dancing, which was extremely well executed, and enjoyed by all. Later, the dancing class also did a novelty number called " The Wedding of the Painted Doll " . During this item, Margaret Milne sang the accompanying words. The programme included rope climbing — one of the best exhibitions yet given at Traf. — high balancing, very ably done by the Second Form, Third Form skipping. Upper I ' s " Mother Goose " , Fifth Form ' s bench drill. Fourth Form ' s precision drill. Upper Second ' s country dancing, games by Lower I and Remove, the traditional vaulting and tumbling, and of course Preparatory ' s item — this was a display of what the " little ones " had achieved during the year, and if they keep on as well as they have been doing, they are all going to be " G " badge gymnasts before very long. " The Chequerboard " , a drill set to music, for which the girls dressed in black and red shorts and blouses, was performed by the Sixth Form. The finale came when the whole school took part in the Grand March, and waited expectantly to hear which girls received " G " badges and stars. These were presented by Mrs. Leask, our games captain ' s mother. Mr. Birks, the father of one of our prefects, kindly spoke a few words thanking us all, and we marched from the gym triumphantly. At this time, all " Trafites " breathed relieved and somewhat satisfied sighs, for every one of the items had gone off without a hitch, and each girl had done her utmost to make this year ' s " dem " the best ever — as indeed we all say it was. Whether this be true or not, we all had a wonderful time doing it. And here ' s to our pianist, Mrs. Prieur, and to our commanding of- ficer at " dem " time, Miss Box, who above all deserve credit for any suc- cess we may have achieved — a big " thank you " — we all hope each suc- ceeding gym dem will be as success- ful as ' 53 ' s has been!

DESOLATION I T COULD be felt everywhere — that still, hushed air, that can come only J- after a storm when the skies have opened and poured down a torrent of water, and then ceased, weak and exhausted. The woods, whch were usually filled with the echoes of laughing children and busy little animals enjoying the sunshine, were now deserted. The usual steady running of a stream had become the loud rushing of an angry river. Over the cliff were the remains of an overturned car, telling the tale of a toy at the mercy of the hands of the angry heavens, and through the cracked windows the wind moaned sorrowfully a song of woe. Even the trees that had once been upright and strong seemed to have given up hope and succumbed to the stronger force, and now lay on the ground, crushed and defeated. The storm had done considerable damage to our countryside, leaving it a skeleton of what it had formerly been. Jeannette Steele, Form Vb, Fairley House. [71] THE DUTY ROOM TELEPHONE I AM INDEED very busy. My busiest time is at seven-thirty. A miniature cyclone comes up the stairs and collects outside the duty room door. After the noise has calmed down to a low roar, my long line begins. The first calls have been fairly short. This is very unusual. I wish I could go along with some of them this Saturday; the movie sounds perfect. This girl has been on my line for about fifteen minutes, but I am sure she has been told about twenty times to hang up. Now, the teacher to the rescue! She tells the girl to get off the line. There is some fast talking. The teacher leaves, expecting the girl to hang up, and the conversation continues. At last she hangs up, reluctantly. My line continues to have some short and some long calls, and occasionally a call even comes in. Now I am ready to sleep, only because the lights are out and the girls are sleeping peacefully.

Vice-President Mrs. Harold Guthrie (Editha Wood) 2nd. Vice-President Mrs. J. A. D. Falkner (Eloise Fairie) 3rd. Vice-President Pat Burbidge Secretary Jacqueline Beaudoin Treasurer Mrs. D. E. Coulter (Joan Pollock) 6th. Form Representatives . . . Nan Carlin Lois Wilson PRESIDENT ' S JOTTINGS THE FUND-AND-FUN PARTY, held last year to raise money for the Scholarship Fund and to buy a movie projector for the school, was such a success, both financially and socially, that it is being repeated this year. As this goes to press, Mrs. Guthrie and her committee have all the plans well in hand. There being no projector to buy this year, we hope to increase the Scholarship Fund by a considerable amount. A Membership Drive was launched last spring also, and, through this and the Party, many Old Girls whose interest in the Association had lapsed have been brought into the fold once more, and I hope will remain active members. Our membership is now around 160, which is an improvement, but not nearly as large as we hope it will be in the future. [72] Our filing system, under the direction of Mrs. Dupont, is having a face- lifting. This is an enormous task and requires much research, as well as a great deal of clerical work. Little by little every Traf Old Girl will have a card with her current address and a cross reference to a card under her maiden name, so that it ' s getting harder all the time for our potential members to escape us! In the fall we held a Projector Party as our first meeting. Parents and teachers as well as members were invited. About 125 were present. There was a brief business meeting, then a full length film was shown on the School ' s new projector, and refreshments followed. At this meeting we asked for volunteers to help with typing and telephoning, stamping and mailing of notices, etc. About 15 girls offered their services, and more are joining the ranks all the time. These girls work in shifts, depending on their free time. They are keen and active workers, and your committee is most grateful to them for the man-hours that they have donated. Due to their efforts, the file will be complete and accurate sooner than we had hoped, and the mailing of notices, which has always been such an endless task to the few responsible for handling it, is now covered in a minimum of time. The Graduation Dance for the Vlth Form was held at the end of January. Mrs. Falkner and two assistants, plus six of the girls from the graduating class, formed the committee. The girls were responsible for the tickets and decorations, while the Old Girls arranged for the orchestra and catering. The gym was completely transformed into a winter wonderland, the music and food were pronounced " super " , but, best of all, that certain indefinable something that makes a party a success was definitely present, so that even the most casually observing chaperone could see that the young people were having a glorious time.
