Dr. Foster gave us a very interesting account of the history of our school. The founder of Trafalgar School for Girls, Mr. Donald Ross, had come to Montreal from Scotland in 1811 as a boy of fifteen years. He wanted to found a school for girls in memory of his mother, and planned to call it the " Ross Institute " . When he obtained part of the Trafalgar property he decided to change the name to " Trafalgar Institute " . It was not until 1934 that the name was changed by the Governors to the present name, " Trafalgar School for Girls " . Mr. Ross died in 1877, leaving the residue of his estate to the Trafalgar Institute. [12] Our school motto, " Spem successus alit " , was the Ross family motto, and it was Mr. Ross ' wish that it should be the motto of the school he founded. He left to the Trustees several items for the school ' s use among which were a telescope, a microscope, maps and globes. He also left two oil paintings, one of his sister and one of Mrs. Ross. These paintings today hang just outside Dr. Foster ' s office. It looked as though the Institute would not be founded for a long while, but in 1883 Rev. Dr. James Barclay, who had just come to Montreal, was able to interest Sir Donald Smith (Lord Strathcona) in the Institute and he donated some money. It was now possible to begin a school. Mr. Ross had planned that the Institute be built on the Trafalgar property, which was on the south-eastern slope of what is now called Westmount Mountain and just opposite his home at 4005 Cote des Neiges Road. This property was not within the city limits of Montreal and Lord Strathcona had stated with his donation that the Institute must be within the city limits. The piece of land on Simpson Street where the school now stands was therefore bought in 1887. In the fall of 1887 the Institute opened for girls over fourteen years of age. It was in 1890 that classes were started for younger girls. Miss Woolan was the Acting Principal until Miss Grace Fairley M,A. of Edinburgh arrived in January 1888 to take over her duties as Principal. Until 1890 everything took place in the original house, but in that year a new east wing was added. It was after this addition that classes were started for girls under fourteen as well. In 1915 a new part was added to the Institute. This addition contains the Lab., art room, locker rooms and several classrooms. Miss Fairley retired in 1913, after being Principal for twenty-six years. She would not accept anything for herself, so a scholarship was established which was called The Trafalgar Scholarship. After Miss Fairley ' s death in 1932, the scholarship was called The Grace Fairley Trafalgar Scholarship. Miss Hardy became Principal in 1913, but in 1915 returned home to England. Miss Windsor remained for two years, and then in 1917 Miss J. L. Gumming was appointed Principal. Miss Gumming was Principal until 1940 when our present Principal, Dr. Foster, came to take over the responsibilities of the school. We shall be sorry to see the newest part of the school demolished when the city of Montreal puts McGregor Street through, but plans are now being made so that there will be accommodation when this takes place. [13] [14] MISS CAM E ARE SAD to know that Miss Cam is retiring from Trafalgar, » » after twenty-three years as teacher of Mathematics and Physics. She has been a loyal and faithful worker, serving the school with great devotion. Her scholarship, and her wide and cultured back- ground have been an inspiration to her pupils. Apart from her teaching. Miss Cam has always shown great interest in all school activities. Many of us remember her at Hallowe ' en parties in her ingenious masquerades: " The Penguin " , " The Wise Old Owl " , " Stop, Look, Listen " and others. She has been an enthusiastic Head of Cumming House, and has never spared herself in her efforts to develop in the girls a loyal spirit and a high standard of work and conduct. As co-worker in the Department of Mathematics, I shall, in Miss Cam ' s departure, experience a real personal loss. During the twenty-three years, we have worked together happily and in the fullest co-operation. We hope that she has many, many happy years ahead of her to enjoy her home and garden in the beautiful English country-side. With affection and every good wish Trafalgar bids her Farewell. G.I.L. [15] A BOX FOR A BIRTHDAY MARIE, SLIPPING on the loose stones, ran down the drive and onto the road, which was hard under her feet as she came into the town. It was a glorious day, she was away from her aunt, and she didn ' t have to be back until lunch-time. She ran faster, the ground stinging the soles of her feet, and then slowed abruptly mingling with the casual stream of people as the hill joined the main street, her cheeks scarlet and her hair windblown. It was pleasant to walk slowly along, with the sun warm on her back and the breeze cool in her face, looking at the shop windows, at the people, and thinking how nice a small town was — how very much nicer than boarding school. It was extremely inconvenient, she thought, that her worst aunt should live in the nicest place: her favourite aunt lived in the city, and she hated staying there in the summer; the middling aunt lived in an extremely popular simimer resort — far too popular for Marie ' s liking; and Aunt Jane lived in a lovely country town, which even her fussiness, her insufferable fussiness, couldn ' t spoil. So Marie was here for the summer, rather than anywhere else, while her parents went on another of their countless trips. She stopped to pat a cocker-spaniel, and looking up saw an antique shop, full of dark, indistinguishable objects. She moved closer, and ran her eyes over the assortment in the window. Perhaps there would be something here for her mother ' s birthday. There was an old clock — rather like Aunt Jane ' s, actually. Aunt Jane: Marie remembered her at breakfast, looking worriedly at the reports of accidents in the paper, jumping when the telephone rang; her thin face lifted, her eyebrows raised, to hear who was at the door when the maid opened it, and her half-smile of relief when it was only the milkman. Aunt Jane lived in daily fear of telegrams — whenever it was her birthday they had to remember it in plenty of time because Aunt Jane would be so worried by receiving a telegram, even if it only said ' Many Happy Returns ' , that she would never enjoy herself. And now, of course, when Marie ' s parents might have an accident any time — ! Marie ' s attention came back to the antique shop with a jerk as a fat, well-dressed woman marched in, opening and shutting the door to the loud ringing of a bell. There were a set of silver spoons, a small bookcase full of old books — Marie tried to read their titles, but it was too dark inside to see much — a china shepherdess, a little black box — Marie looked at this with greater interest. It was possible to keep almost anything in a box like that — jewellery perhaps, thought Marie, pressing her nose against the window in an effort to see it more clearly. What was it made of, she wondered? How much did it cost? She moved along a little, trying [16] to see the price tag, but it was facing inwards. She put her hand in her pocket to feel the five dollar bill again. She didn ' t want to spend it all at once . . . She pushed open the door, and the bell rang out to announce her, as she stood looking at the clutter of Georgian chairs and Jacobean bedsteads that seemed to surround her, and hid all but the head of the assistant who was talking to the fat woman. Marie watched them, hardly liking to make her way over to the box in case she knocked anything over. It was an ideal present. Even Aunt Jane would think so, and her mother would be delighted. She wondered where her mother was, now. Probably still in Italy: they weren ' t leaving there till Friday, she remembered. She might even spend the whole five dollars, if it cost that much. Why didn ' t the fat woman decide whether or not she wanted the repulsive china dog? The box could be wrapped in red paper: her mother liked red, and Aunt Jane had some of that — " Can I help you? " said a voice, and Marie turned round hastily, lost her balance, and almost knocked over a warming-pan. " Er, yes please, " she said, wondering why she hadn ' t thought of looking for a second assistant. " There ' s a box in the window — a little black . . . " Her voice faded away, and the assistant, producing a large blue one, said, " Do you mean this? " " No, it ' s black, " said Marie more loudly, turning rather red. The assistant emerged from between candlesticks and bookends with her box. " How much is it, please? " asked Marie, hoping three dollars, expecting four, and prepared for five. " Nineteen ninety-five, " said the assistant blithely. " Extremel) good value for something of this kind. It dates from . . . " Marie ' s expression was disbelieving, horrified, and miserable in rapid succession. " Oh. Thank you, " she said, and went out, leaving the assistant extolling the virtues of the box. The bell clanged behind her. The assistant shrugged his shoulders, and wormed his way between the bookends and the candlesticks. Marie walked off among the drifting crowds; her hair was untidy, her face was dirty, and she was almost crying. There was no point in looking for anything else before lunch; she might as well go home. She thought dimly that it was silly to mind so much, but it was such a lovely box, with its smooth black sides and the gold pattern on top. She felt there was nothing pleasant at all in her life. She was in a dull town, with a fussy aunt, without her parents, it was too hot, her legs were tired, the hill was steep — there were endless things to be miserable about. She walked heavily upwards. She had a stone in her shoe. Her parents would be in Rome now. She had never been so miserable in her life. She couldn ' t possibly be more miserable. She turned into the dusty drive, and saw Aunt Jane standing at the top. Aunt Jane would probably tell her to stop being so gloomy. She had every reason to be gloomy, she would never save twenty dollars. She looked up, frowning. And then she saw Aunt Jane ' s white face, and the telegram in her hand. Caryl Churchill, Form Vb, Cumming House. [17] ROMAN RUINS Ancient ruins by dim twilight, Columns of crumbling stone, An era of splendour created their height To stand in beauty alone! Now but gravestones, last of the might Of once predominant Rome. The jewel of Italy; the grandest state, Ruled both far and near, Commanding the world, until, too late. She saw fame disappear Through profligate emperors, so her fate Was ruin; the end was clear. Now all that remains of that Empire high Which finally had to succumb Are these pillars, melting into the sky. Which say, and yet are dumb: That as they last, one ever shall see Sceptrum ad infinitum. Linda McDougall, Form Vb, Fairley House. THE DROUGHT THE EFFECTS of the drought were visible everywhere on the farm. Coarse, wilted hay drooped in the distant field, lifeless in the heat of the noon-day sun. A swallow winged its way through the cloudless, summer sky, over the parched orchard, whose dusty trees extended their branches towards the heavens, vainly seeking cool, refreshing rain. A dog lay panting in the shade of an apple tree, its body stretched on the dry mat of tangled grass. An apple, ripened before maturity, fell to the ground, and the dog sat up with a start, only to collapse again onto the grass, tired with the effort. In the cool of the barn, farmer and son lay back against the wagon-wheel, indifferent to t he protruding hub, aware only of the perspiration trickling down their backs, and the afternoon of work that stretched before them, endless in its proximity. Through the open door they viewed a tall, gaunt pine, casting its long, black shadow over the field, a vivid personification of the Drought. MoRVEN McIlquham, Form Vb, Ross House. DEMOLITION! MISS MURRAY stared in amazement at the large hole in the floor through which her desk had disappeared. She stepped back gingerly, thinking, " Now if this is some trick of Peta ' s and Judy ' s . . But no, there they were sitting quietly at their desks, and looking just as astonished as she. [18] There was a grinding noise from below, and, taking a firm grip on the bottom of the blackboard. Miss Murray leaned forward cautiously to peer into the gap in the floor. She saw her desk poised precariously on top of one of the second form desks, and noticed with relief that the ink had not spilt. There was another crunching noise, and one of the marble slabs on the stairway upended itself slowly and rolled majestically down the stairs. In the art room, a large display sheet covered with Christmas tree ornaments floated off the wall and wrapped itself around Pam, while the desks started hopping and banging in a most frightening manner. Judy, muttering an excuse to Miss Capel, hurried out to consult Miss Box. This hadn ' t been mentioned to her in today ' s curriculum. Back in the laboratory. Miss Murray decided that it was impossible to teach against such a racket. She put down her chalk and stalked out to find Wilson and tell him about her desk. The sixth form Biology class was delighted, and immediately started to play noughts and crosses. As Miss Murray come out of the lab., she saw a tall, fair-haired girl covered with Christmas tree ornaments disappearing down the stairs. Miss Murray looked at her blankly for a moment, then bounded after her, still bent on finding Wilson and reporting the predicament of her desk. On the ground floor, a strange sight met Miss Murray ' s eyes. There was a large gap in one side of the fifth form classroom. A bull-dozer of cor- responding size was standing in the middle of the room, and on its nose sat Ann Kampouris and her desk. Ann was busy writing history notes, while Mrs. Galambos and the rest of the class looked at her with unfeigned interest. There was another crash, and the whole side of the building crumbled. People were at once running pell-mell all over the place, and Miss Murray sighted a diligent member of Gumming House poking about in the debris for souvenirs such as House pins and crests. " Oh good heavens! What is going on? " gasped Miss Murray, and she hurried off again in search of Wilson. Something must be done about her desk. Vicky Cumyn, Arts VI, Fairley House. THE TARTAN TARTAN IS a woven material of wool, with different coloured stripes which vary in width. The arrangement of the colours is the same in length and width, and when woven appears to be a number of squares crossed by stripes which intersect each other. By varying the width and number of stripes and changing the colours, different patterns are made. Tartan patterns are called " setts " . In earlier days the skill of the weaver and the availability of plants likely to supply dyes were the main factors in determining the sett of a tartan. The colours used would be restricted to the plant dyes found within the various districts. Thus it is likely that the people of the different districts were recognized by the colours in their tartans. [19] Tartans are described according to their purpose. Clan tartans are patterns for general use by the clanspeople. When a clan tartan of recent origin is described as " Ancient Clan Tartan " it is misleading, for the word " ancient " is merely an indication that the tartan has been woven in lighter shades. Dress tartans were originally worn by the ladies of the Clan who wanted lighter coloured patterns. The majority of them had a white background and were variations of the Clan pattern. Nowadays they are confined to dress occasions. At one time there was a mourning tartan, worn for that purpose, which was generally black and white. Many are now worn as dress tartans. Hunting tartans are worn for sport and outdoor activities. Brown and green are usually the predominant colours. The colours are arranged so that the tartan blended with the surroundings when hidden in the heather. Chief tartans are the personal tartans of the chiefs and should be worn only by the chief and his immediate family. District tartans are probably the oldest of our tartans and from them Clan tartans may have developed. Although many old patterns have been saved, these show only the beauty of the old vegetable dyes and the hand spun weaving of the eighteenth century. Hardly any of them are now recognizable as Clan tartans. The greatest number of our tartans are less than one hundred years old; a fairly large number may be dated to the opening years of the nineteenth century, while a very few are of more ancient date. Marion MacRae, Form Va, Ross House. THE VICTOR ONE DAY I took a ride out on the plains with my horse. All of a sudden far off in the distance I heard the shrill cry of a stallion. I lifted my head and looked up, and there on the cliff were a piebald stallion and a dark bay stallion fighting. They were up on their hind legs and pawing at each other with their hooves, while their large white teeth bit into the other ' s flesh. I watched, horrified, and then it was over. The piebald was dead. The dark bay stood up on the cliff uttering his challenge. His black mane and tail stood out in the sunshine and his bay coat shone. His nostrils seemed to quiver with joy as he looked at his dead opponent. Far down in the green valley, mares and their foals grazed quietly as if they were unaware of their new king. And then as I raised my eyes to look at the stallion again, he reared and galloped off into the distance. Nancy Wood, Form HIb, Ross House. FAT MEN HAVE YOU ever wondered what is so fascinating about fat men? or why they are considered so jolly? They either keep us terribly interested, or revolt us. More often they hold our interest. If someone is speaking of a person we do not know and happens to say that this person is thin, we are unimpressed. [20] If, however, he should say the subject of the conversation is fat, our ears perk up and our eyes brighten with interest. Tragedy in the life of a thin man draws our sympathy, but it is the misfortune of a fat man that brings a tear to our eye. But, perhaps you will disagree with me, and say that fat men are usually stupid and careless; and didn ' t Shakespeare say, in " Love ' s Labour Lost " , " fat paunches have lean pates " ? Now, I can disagree with you. Fat men are extremely smart. That is half the reason why they hold our interest. There is, of course, much proof that they do hold our attention; for what other reason did Shakespeare make Henry V ' s friend, Falstaff, a fat man? Falstaff was important as he represented our human weaknesses, and our attention had to be drawn to him. Also, " The Fat Man " on the radio shows that not all fat men are stupid, or always jolly and careless. In the first place, the title is enough to make us buy a paper and find out what time the programme comes on. We half expect him to be funny, but he turns out to be a very clever, serious detective. Yet we listen to him, because he is a fat man. Why are fat men better liked? Because they are jolly, you say. But they were jolly before they were fat. A great majority of men are fat because they are happy, have no worries, do not bother about indigestion, and so eat to their heart ' s content. Thin men are thin because they are usually worriers, and unfortunately, pessimists. They think a lot. For again, Shakespeare said through Julius Caesar, " Let me have men about me that are fat; Sleek-headed men, and such as sleep o ' nights; Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous. " Shakespeare was quite right. The world would be a better place if there were more of these contented, fat men than those worried, skinny ones. There are usually three types of fat men — the gourmet, the gourmand, and the type who just grows fat for no particular reason. We are inclined, of course, to favour the gourmet, as we feel he had a purpose in life in being fat. He can tell us which is the best way to have pheasant under glass, or crepes Suzettes, or rattle-snake meat. His profession is eating, it seems, but he prefers quality to quantity. However, he finds that there is so much quality . . . The gourmand does not appeal to us. He, of course, prefers quantity to quality and becomes huge from mere piggishness. Perhaps we feel a little sorry for the man who gets fat for no particular reason. But he is usually full of fun and enjoys life more than any of us. Look at Santa Glaus. Why is he drawn as a fat man? Because he is so jolly, and jolly men are considered fat. Perhaps we say fat men are jolly because, when they laugh, they shake more and create a much greater impression than does a thin man . . . Fat men should really never revolt us, because they are the ones, if they are not too fat, who really enjoy life, and seldom develop ulcers and other nervous conditions. What a fine, contented world it would be if all men were fat! Linda McDougall, Form Vb, Fairley House. [21] THE RAIN The hollow drumming of rain on a wet city street Blends with the musical patter of hurrying feet. Street lamps are blurred by a silvery curtain of rain; Neon lights shimmer through hazy dimness, and then Gutters are flowing with muddy torrents and streams, Bubbling and eddying onward, reflecting the gleams Of a thousand headlights, glowing then slowly paling, Piercing the folds of rain, then quietly failing . . . Drip of the rain from eaves o ' erhanging the walk; Rhythms so varied and changing that they seem to mock The composer who labours all day to improve his style — And pools of water ' neath the eaves all the while Are rippling, as drop after drop breaks on their surface. Glittering silver in the glow of a lamp, as the surplus Of water floods the walk with a sudden surge. And the drumming of rain and the patter of feet seem to merge. MoRVEN McIlquham, Form Vb, Ross House- SPARTACUS ONE OF THE most inspiring passages of ancient history concerns a miserable slave of the Romans who rose to become a great legendary figure, and to lead his fellow slaves in a heroic fight against intolerable conditions and inhuman treatment — a man named Spartacus. Spartacus, a Thracian slave, born of generations of slaves, had never even tasted freedom, and, in common with other slaves, had known nothing but indescribable squalor. Spartacus was now a gladiator, with the only prospect ahead of him that of dying horribly in the arena for the pleasure of his degenerate masters, products of a corrupt Rome. Out of the depths of such wretchedness his undefeated spirit and essential humanity rose to make him leader of his fellow slaves and to defy a Rome at the height of her military and political power. The indomitable courage of Spartacus and his followers inspired other slaves to revolt, and soon their stronghold in the crater of mighty Mount Vesuvius was garrisoned by seventy thousand men. In spite of their strength the Romans were very much alarmed lest the states subject to them should rise to follow Spartacus ' s example, but the three armies sent to subjugate those united in their desperate fight for freedom were defeated. Spartacus and his followers held the field for three long years against furious onslaughts, until ( rassus, the richest man in Rome, and Pompey, the greatest general, managed to conquer those slaves who were emancipated for so short a time. The fact that they held out against overwhelming and insurmountable odds in number and arms was probably the reason that so little of this tremendous story was recorded by contemporary Romans. What we have of historical fact is that [22] those who were taken alive were led in bonds and crucified along the Appian Way, the bodies being left to rot as a terrible warning to other men in bondage. Writers and men of vision have been inspired by this outstanding leader. Among these is William Linton, an English author and friend of Mazzini, the soul of the Italian unification movement, who signed his political contribu- tions to various newspapers " Spartacus " . Spartacus ' s name was also taken by a group of left-wing socialists in Germany who opposed the war of 1914-1918 and who tried to bring it to a speedy end. Elihu Burritt, a nineteenth century American writer and philanthropist, was inspired by the Spartacus legend to write a piece of rhetoric called the " Address to the Gladiator " , which has since become famous. Howard Fast too, a contemporary American, used Spartacus as the subject for one of his latest and best novels. Although historical facts are few, the name " Spartacus " symbolizes the eternal struggle against tyranny. Eva Kornpointer, Arts VI, Gumming House. ALGEBRA Add x4, divide y , and find sixth root of z. All sorts of crazy formulae are buzzing in my head. Now multiply an a by x, and find fifth root of z, O when I work on Algebra I wish that I were dead. Cube the square, and square the cube, and take fourth root of z. This would have been much simpler had I only stayed in bed. Then take a sum, a product find, toss in cube root of z. Yes, this a silly subject is, which I most surely dread. Divide the x, divide the y, divide square root of z. Numbers I ' ll put up with, but with letters I see red. By prodigious deduction, I solved sixth root to z. But I am glad I don ' t teach this to earn my daily bread. Janet Rutherford, Form Vb, Gumming House. THE LAKE THE SMALL lake was beautiful in the moonlight. From the golden shimmering circle near the centre came ripples of shiny black, only to become silver ribbons of lace as they glided over the soft, wet sand. Somewhere across the lake a loon wailed its mournful desolate cry. As we lifted our eyes to search for the maker of the sound, we noticed an overhanging branch of a water-willow dipping down into the cool, black water. The moonlight, as it penetrated the hanging boughs, produced shadows which played and danced upon the water. A bough breaking from a willow tree brought us back from the cloud in which we had been for the last few cherished moments, as we had gazed upon that holy place. We knew that we must leave the lake to the God who had created it. Alberta Anderson, Form Vb, Barclay House. [23] MIDAS Sunny morning . . . light on the wall like gold — Like gold! That man who came to me last night Said all I touched — the sheets turn stiff and bright! It works! Gold table and gold bed — I ' m rich! Gold pillow for my head, Golden curtains, golden wall. Shoes and cloak — all I wear — Golden brushes for my hair! Nothing cheap at all, at all — Golden buckle in my belt — Nothing silver, nothing felt! Out into the garden run. Richest! richest in the world! Water golden in the sun. Golden stones in the water hurled. Golden rose, golden tree. All I see golden grows. All for me! all for me! Back inside in ecstasy. Golden table, golden chair. Ring a newly golden bell — Touching fast as I am able. Seeing gold spring here and there. Maid, astonished, flies to tell Master ' s turned the room all yellow! That cook! The coffee looks too strong — Lower wages for the fellow! It tastes — he ' s tried to poison me! No. It ' s gold. Touch toast to trembling lips — Eggs! Ham! Butter! Jam! Let me eat them! Bated breath — Milk turns gold, defying sips . . . I ' ll never eat again. I ' ll starve to death. I ' ll starve to death. — My daughter, oh, my love. Come, comfort me! I ' ll tell you what I ' ve done. What deadly sin — my child! Your hand turns hard in mine. Your face is still. 0 gods, I didn ' t mean to ask for this — 1 didn ' t mean to kill the one I love . . . These fingers have the power To change warm flesh to metal shining cold. [24] I never can touch anything but gold. I ' ll never feel the rain upon my face. No velvet, or deep fur, or rough barked tree, No sunwarmed grass, no man, no living, loving child . . . My life is changed to hunger, thirst, and torturing bright gold. Oh, give my life, my daughter, back to me! up the ski-tow to this height, and according to the rule, all things that go up must come down. So now my chief problem was how? I looked around, and found to my sheer delight an inviting sign saying: This pointed in the direction of a clump of trees. Well, this looked encouraging. The words BEGINNERS and EASY caught my eye, and with the help of a few deep breaths, I started toward the clump of trees, and looked beyond. Then, getting more venturesome, I started down. Whee, this is fun! Coming to a stop at the first turn, I looked back with great satisfaction. Well, that was easy enough, let ' s see what ' s next. My skis took me farther, on and on, past trees and around corners, until I was going at a terrific speed! The trees on either side of me whizzed by, making a pattern of green and brown streaks. Golly, how was I going to stop? A sharp turn was coming, and there was only one possible way for me to make it, and that was to fall, and walk around the corner. But it wasn ' t quite that easy. The falling part was all right, but oh, what a spot I chose! My skis had led me into deep snow, and there I just sat! " My, what beautiful scenery! " That was my attitude anyway, but the skiers whizzing by could see I hadn ' t stopped simply to admire the view! Now to get myself out of this predicament. I was so deep in the snow that every time I tried to get out I just went deeper. Finally I managed to wiggle myself onto the harder snow and stand up. The minute I stood up, my skis started on the rampage again, hardly giving me a chance to get my balance. Oh well, that ' s over. I hoped the rest would be a little easier. On I went to the next turn, which was even sharper and more slippery than the last. When I tried to stop, I found myself on an icy spot, and, being unable to stand, once more I sat! But my discouragement really wasn ' t necessary, as I came to find out. I had been there only a few minutes when a string of skiers came down, each one falling in the same spot where I had! I guess I ' m not the only one who skis sitting down! After gaining more courage, I ventured to stand, and once again my skis started sliding. It ' s amazing what difficulty two pieces of wood can get you into! What was that tricky bit of manoeuvring I had learned to turn oneself Caryl Churchill, Form Vb, Gumming House. T BEGINNERS ONLY TWO MILES OF EASY TRAIL [25] around? Oh yes, bring one ski up on end, and put it down in the other direction. Then bring the other ski around, and you ' re turned. Who are they trying to kid ? ! But I tried it, and much to my amazement, it worked, so I was able to get my balance without sliding all over. Then " we " , all three of us, were off again. At one point I stopped, this time standing! The course ahead of me looked far too risky, so, using a bit more of my scant knowledge, I went down sideways. Yes, step by step, inch by inch, until I reached a spot where I could continue, going forward. The rest of the trail wasn ' t quite so mortifying: a few steep parts and more sharp corners. Then below me I could see the roof of the tow-hut. Civilization again! I felt so eager to get through this maze of trees and corners that I didn ' t care what came next, and let my skis follow the tracks already there. At last there was a wi de opening between the trees, and I flew right through it, and found myself going at a terrific speed down the last mighty hill of the trail. Of course every trail must have a happy ending, but with me it was more of a landing, and to top it all, beside the tow-hut. That was the last straw! " Is that really the beginners ' trail? " I asked the tow operator. " Oh no. Miss, that ' s the trail for advanced skiers ! The sign must have been twisted by the wind last night. The beginners ' trail comes out over there, " and he pointed to another opening in the trees. " Someone get me a hot drink, " I replied, " I feel faint! " Vivian Harland, Arts VI, Ross House. JAMAICA ON A MAP of the earth it ' s a dot — but to the natives of this island with the swaying coconut trees and sunny skies it is the beginning and end of the world. Their lives are centred around market-day. It is the event of the week. For days before, they come in from the country, some in buses, some on donkeys, and some even on foot, laden with baskets. At day-break on market-day, the singsong voices can be heard as they shout their wares: " Water coconuts, fresh water coconuts " or " Some nice vegetables today, ma ' am? " As the day gets hotter, the voices seem to rise, the crowds to thicken, the fruit and vegetable smells to increase, and the clinking of coins to become more frequent. Then, as suddenly as it began, it ends. As the afternoon comes, the crowds disperse. There is a lull in the voices. The barefoot children in their ragged clothes cease playing, and gather around their parents who are crouched beside their baskets in a deep sleep. Then, as if by magic, at night it begins all over again. If it was picturesque in the day, it is even more so at night. Now the kerosene lamps are lit, and with the moonlit sky for a roof the night marketing begins. Now, however, the voices are low, and the nervous movements of the donkeys can be heard. [26] This selling will continue to a very late hour. Then the baskets will he placed once again on the head, and the journey homewards will hegin. Market-day is over for another week. But there is a second side to the lives of these people — that which is reflected in their music, from the dirge-song of a road-mender as he swings his pick-axe, to the well-known calypso hands with the rhythmic beat of the drums, strumming of guitars and shaking of the maracas. As they play, they become a part of the music. It is in their eyes, their voices, and the swaying movements of their bodies. They have never had a lesson on an instrument, for they do not need it, surrounded as they are by the music of the sea, and the tropical flowers and animals. Yes, they live a unique life, untouched as yet, it seems, by the surging tide of civilization. Jeannette Steele, Arts VI, Fairley House. LIGHT AND SHADE THE SUN had sunk behind the hills, and all the earth was dark. One tree stood, charcoal-black against the purple veil of night. Its branches, drooping on the snowy ground, lifted as breezes blew them all about, calling, frantically calling to anyone to come and watch, in awe and wonder, the coming of the night. And then the moon came up and sat upon a pine-tree, crowning it with beauty, and rays of glistening moonbeams scattered to the ground, picking out the sparkling highlights of the mauve-coloured snow that blanketed the earth. Little lumps of downy snow, sliding on the slippery branches of the trees, shimmered in the night, and bathed each tree in splendour. Stars began to twinkle in the blue-black sky and seemed to form a shawl that slowly fell upon the glittering earth. The whole scene was brightly shining in the night, telling the world that Christmas time was near. Susan Hallett, Form Vb, Barclay House. MYSTERY AT MIDNIGHT THE LAST stroke of midnight boomed and slowly died away. All at once a low whistle sounded in an upper room of the grim, silent building. It was quickly answered by the shuffle of many moving feet. Swiftly the leader, who had whistled, was surrounded by a cluster of darkened forms. They all listened intently for a few minutes. With great care a large container was brought forward and rested noiselessly on the floor. Again they listened. The next operation was the most difficult and the most dangerous. A shudder ran round the group as they thought of the horrible possibilities if they were heard at this point. The leader, though realizing the heavy responsibility, cautiously bent to his task. Steadily but firmly, pressure was applied. Almost immediately the hiss of escaping gas could be heard. [27] The suspense that followed could be felt. Then someone uttered a sigh of relief. It was echoed by the rest. With willing hands the ginger ale bottle was passed around. The midnight feast in the senior dorm had begun. Lynne Schofield, Form Va, Barclay House. EXAMS Study! Study! Study! My light burns brightly on To try to avoid that last minute rush Before my thoughts are gone. Write! Write! Write! With paper, pen, and ink. Trying to write page after page When I cannot even think. Exams! Exams! Exams! Hear me while I wail! My parents say, " Do what you can " . And grumble when I fail! Judy Brow, Arts VI, Barclay House. YOU ' RE TELLING US! Getting out this magazine is fun, but it ' s no picnic, If we print jokes, people say we are silly; If we don ' t, they say we are too silly. If we clip things from other papers, we are too lazy to write them ourselves; If we don ' t, we are too fond of our own stuff. If we don ' t print contributions, we don ' t appreciate genius; If we do, the paper ' s full of junk. If we change other people ' s work, we are too critical; If we don ' t, we are asleep. Now as likely as not somebody will say we swiped this from another paper. We did. No apologies to the Juggler, Ball State, and the Crimson Comet. (B.C.S. Magazine and Unity News, Sydney, Australia, L.C.C. Magazine) [28] DECEMBER December is the time of year When people are full of joy and cheer. The streets are full of happy people, And bells are ringing in the steeple. Beth Lennox, Lower I, Age 91 . THE STREAM The little stream sparkles Through the fields and forests. And bubbles on the pebbles. And shines like gold Under the flaming sun; And from the wide and sunny sky. Shines the silver moon by night. And turns the stream Into a silvery stretch; And when morning comes. It shines gold, and goes on forever. SiMONE Engelbert, Upper II, Gumming House. AUTUMN IN THE WOODS AUTUMN IN the wood just captures my heart with its stiff breeze. Last night we had a tang of frost, which makes the air fresh. The leaves make a crunching sound as I walk along. I hear the birds calling, as if saying their last farewells, and the honking of the geese overhead. As I look up I see the leaves falling down like little fairies in coloured dresses. Though I am enjoying myself here, I know that the brook must be pretty, so I go to see it. Through the woodland I go to a babbling brook. The foam with the leaves on it makes it look like a decorated cake. Here I rest, to think that in a few weeks it will have changed all its glory and splendor to a dark silent wood, asleep. Barbara Clarke, Form II, Ross House. MOONBEAMS At night o ' er all the sleeping earth. The moon sheds silvery beams, Down which angels slide to bring. To mortals, golden dreams. They shine suspended in the sky. Indeed they are a glorious sight. And if you look towards the moon. You may see them every night. Betty Shannon, Form II, Gumming House. [29] WHY THE GRAND-FATHER CLOCK FORGOT TO STRIKE MIDNIGHT IT WAS late at night and all the family had gone to bed. The grand-father clock found it hard to keep awake. " I wish someone were here, " he said, " but of course why should there be? " All of a sudden he heard a funny noise; it was a noise of scraping. " Oh dear! " said the grand-father clock to himself, " I hope that it is not a burglar. " Then two mice came into view. One was bigger than the other, so it was plain to see that they were probably married, and looking for a home. The bigger mouse began to speak, " I think this is a good place for a home. We can make a nice cosy nest, and we shall make it behind the grand-father clock. No cat would ever think of looking there, and the grand- father clock will tell us what time it is. " " Yes! I think so too, " said his wife. " Hello! " said the grand-father clock. " Eeeeeeee! " screamed the two mice, and scuttled away to a dark corner of the room. " Oh! do not be afraid, I ' m only grand-father clock, and I would be so pleased if you made your nest behind me! You do not have to worry about a cat, because the people in this house do not have one, but I still could tell you the time. When it is time to get up, I shall chime loudly, but when it is late, I shall not! " " Well that is fine! " said the smaller mouse. " My name is Swissy, because I like Swiss cheese better than any other kind! My husband ' s name is Wilsil, because he likes Wilsil bacon better than any other kind! " " Do you think, Swissy, that we should make our nest now? " asked Wilsil. " Why not wait until morning, because it is now fifteen minutes past midnight? " asked the clock. " Yes! We will do that! " said the two mice together. " Tonight we will sleep in this boot! " said Swissy. " Oh! what ' s wrong, grand-father clock? " asked Wilsil. It was no wonder he said what he did, for the grand-father was very green! " I forgot to strike midnight! " said the grand-father clock. Janet Beattie, Upper I, Age IQi . [30] THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE IN THE middle of a deep forest, there was a clearing. In the middle of that clearing, there was a little Christmas tree. A fairy in the tree was sad, because she had no present for the animals who were asleep now. Then she had an idea. She went and found lots of acorns and nuts and hung them on the tree. Then she took out all the seeds she had saved for making necklaces for the ball where they were to pick the Christmas fairy. She opened the box where she kept the moss for her bed, and took out the best piece of moss. Then she took the seeds and the moss and put them under the Christmas tree. She was late for the ball, but was just in time for the queen who was looking around. She said, " You are the Christmas Fairy because you were kind to the animals. " The little Christmas tree is a big fir tree now, but the fairies still dance around it every Christmas night. And that is the story of the little Christmas tree. Harriet Dupont, Lower I, Age 9. THE UNDERWATER WORLD ONE DAY, as I was walking on the beach, ready to go swimming, I saw one of my friends who had an underwater mask. I asked her if I could use it, and as soon as I had permission I put it on and made a dive. The short time I spent under the water will be the most enchanting part of my life. The blue element of the v ater transformed the vegetation into a magic garden. The plants were of many varieties, blooms so colourful that one was amazed at seeing them. There were frozen flowers of every shape and hue, exquisite branching trees and shrubs, and sea creatures such as scarlet and blue star fishes, pink anemones, crabs of all colours, and lion fishes. All of them swam by, in all directions, waving their tails as if they had wings. A blue veil covered everything down there. The open and glittering shells of the clams and oysters were glued into the rocks, mixed with seaweeds. I suddenly turned my head around and was terrified at the view of a polyp. An ugly creature, half animal and half plant, it looked like a hundred headed snake growing out of the rock. Its branches were long slim arms with fingers like wriggling worms. I tried to escape the grab of the polyp by folding my arms over my breast, and darting through the water like a fish. I was so frightened that I decided to leave the depths of the sea and come out under the sun again. My friend awaited me at the shore, and I sat for the rest of the afternoon, dreaming of the wonderful things I had seen. Catherine Hadjipateras, Upper II, Barclay House. THE BUNNY We saw the bunny wash his face, As he sat in a garden-place; He nibbled lettuce leaves, and then We saw him wash his face again. Sharon Baly, Remove, Age 81 . [31] THE HARE AND THE TORTOISE ONCE THERE was a boasting hare. He did nothing all day but boast about how fast he could run. You know how fast hares can run. Well, one day, as usual he was boasting in the sun, when he saw a tortoise. The tortoise was thinking he would race with the hare. So he walked up to the hare and said, " Why not have a race? " So they had a race. They went to the starting line and began. The hare ran ahead. The tortoise went slowly behind. The hare thought he had better have a rest. But the tortoise won. The silly hare came running up the road, and when he saw the tortoise had won, he never boasted again. Claire Marshall, Preparatory, Age 7. TRAFALGAR RECIPE TAKE A Battle of Trafalgar and make it famous. Then take one founder and mix thoroughly with wealthy men, and a property named after the battle — sprinkle well with ambition. To this mixture add one school building, one house, and many years. Stir well. Now pepper with two hundred schoolgirls dressed in dark blue tunics. Add two cups of laughter, one cup of tears, three teaspoonfuls of mis- chievousness, and a liberal amount of fun. Pour into this enough exams and tests to suit taste. Mix and add teachers. Now take four houses competing against each other, spelling bees, field days. Red Cross work, and mark readings. Stir, and mix with first batter. Now pour out one pint of homework, and two cups of spilt ink. Add one Gym Demonstration, one carol singing, a Remembrance Day, three closings, and a Trafalgar Tea. Spread on June graduates. Take locker room confusion, and add one prefect trying to straighten things out. Sprinkle with prefect ' s vain remarks. Now beat together lost running shoes, balky pens, and tight shorts. Stir in forgotten name tapes. Pour out a lot of generosity and teasing. Add text books, note-books, and a good quantity of forgetfulness. Flavour with detentions, conduct marks, and bad marks, and you have the concoction known as Trafalgar School. Anne Begor, Upper H, Cumming House. [32] THE TOY RABBIT I ' m not the kind of rabbit Who lives inside a hutch, I do not feed on lettuce Or even like it much. You ' ll find me on a Christmas tree Beside a lollipop; And if you wind me with a key I ' ll hop hop hop! Sharon Baly, Remove, Age 8i . THE GLORIOUS ARCH When autumn sweeps the dying land And frost lies gently o ' er the ground. And a world prepares for a winter of death When the snow falls lightly without a sound. And the trees transform their coats of green To scarlet and rich golden yellow. And those leaves of the maple and elm that have fallen Lie peacefully on the earth below, I know a place — a heavenly place — Where the maple trees all turn gold. And the branches grow high, and over the road Such a story of wonder they ' ve told. Those trees foTm an arch of seasonal beauty. With a carpet of leaves at the bottom — They ' re richer than silver and gold put together For they make the arch of autumn! Laureen Hicks, Upper II, Fairley House. SPRING IS HERE! Of all the seasons in the year, I think spring brings the most good cheer. People seem to come to life: Gone is winter, cold and strife. The sun is shining, warm and clear. The whole world knows that SPRING IS HERE ! Margaret Henderson, Form II, Gumming House. [33] THE PAIR OF SHOES ONCE THERE was a pair of shoes. They were brothers. One day one shoe said, " Let ' s run away. " But the other shoe said, " No! " and the first shoe said, " Well I am! " and ran away. He ran and ran, but a man threw him away. And the second shoe was put into a nice box. Caroline Elizabeth Greeves, Preparatory, Age 7. THE STAR WHO LOST HIS WAY There once was a star Who came down from heaven. I think, but I ' m not sure. He was seven. He walked along the street Till he lost his way. He travelled by night, But not by day. Then he was hungry and started to cry. Then I came along and asked him why. Then I said, " Do not cry. Tonight you can sleep with Mummy and 1. " He was so happy, happy as can be. As he came to my house Walking along with me. Then in the morning he was very gay. I told him to go to heaven And there he had to stay. Because if he came down He would lose his way. Leslie Bell, Upper I, Age 10. THE STORM THE SKY was covered by a low-hanging cloud, almost blacker than the darkness which was falling over land and sea alike. The sea beneath it was a slate grey, and the waves foamed angrily at the foot of the cliff, pounding agai nst it, drawing back, and pounding again. A strong wind was rising in the east, and it whistled around me as I stood there, near the edge of the cliff. A flock of sea gulls wheeled overhead, then, uttering their hoarse screams, flew inland. At the distant pier fishermen hurried to cover their boats with tarpaulins, make the moorings secure, and put fenders on the dock-sides, preparing for a big blow. Then the storm broke. The rain poured down, and the angry white-capped waves drove upon the shore, lashed into a fury by the driving wind! The [34] thunder rumbled and the lightning flashed, a jagged streak of light that cut across the heavens like a blinding sword and lit up the countryside, as I raced for shelter. The snow is whirling all about him. He is now at Jimmy ' s house. Jimmy is there to meet him. Jimmy asks Laddie if he could help him light the lamps. Then I see Jimmy run into the house. When he comes back he is in his cap with earmuffs, a scarf, woollen-lined jacket and woollen-lined ski pants and boots. Then I see them go down the street together. About half an hour later I see Jimmy come back with Laddie the Lamplighter, and go up the steps and open the door. Jimmy goes in for a few minutes and then comes out again and invites Laddie in for some cocoa and a sandwich. Then Laddie goes home to bed and so does Jimmy. The houses are dark, but the street is not. The lamps are bright and the snow is still whirling around. Now the crystal ball is very still. It is just a picture, with no action. Birds can fly Birds can fly Birds can fly all over the sky. I love the Birds, and the Birds love me, The Birds can fly all over the sea. Anne Begor, Upper II, Gumming House. Lynne McLay, Upper I, Age IQi . THE BIRDS Carol Holland, Preparatory, Age 6. cc [35] LE RUISSEAU Le ruisseau chante sur les cailloux, Et les oiseaux gais gazouillent Entre les branches vertes des arbres; Et les fleurs multicolores s ' ouvrent Sous les rayons du soleil doux. Au loin, un jeune berger joue sa flute; Et les agneaux sur I ' herbe verte broutent; Et la brise legerement souffle; Et le ruisseau continuellement Coule . . . coule . . . coule . . . Catherine Hadjipateras, Upper II, Barclay House. LES ARTISTES IMPRESSIONNISTES LES ARTISTES impressionnistes sont un groupe d ' artistes frangais qui ont peint avec emotion.

Mais maintenant tout le monde aime leurs belles peintures. lis ont pris des couleurs belles et claires. lis ont peint avec joie la nature qu ' ils aiment. Leurs portraits et leuTs natures mortes ont maintenant une grande valeur. Gloria Demers, Form IIIa, Cumming House. LE PRINTEMPS C ' est le printemps quand il fait beau. La terre est noire mais il fait chaud. Les enfants quittent leurs jeux, et disent " C ' est le printemps, c ' est le printemps Quand il fait beau. " Ardis Cartwright, Upper II, Ross House. LA REPUBLIQUE DOMINICAINE LA REPUBLIQUE DOMINICAINE est une republicjue appartenant aux Antilles, I ' ancienne partie espagnole de File de Saint Domingue. Elle occupe la partie est et la plus grande de File dont Haiti est la partie ouest. Saint Domingue est le plus vieil etablissement d ' origine europeenne dans le nouveau monde.

II est entoure de murs anciens et traverse de rues droites et etroites. La vieille cathedrale date de 1512 et renferme la tombe de Colomb. Sandra Kovacs, Form IVb, Barclay House. [36] LE VILLAGE E VILLAGE est petit et joli. Derriere le village il y a des montagnes bleues. En hiver les montagnes sont blanches. Dans la nuit on voit seulement les fenetres illuminees. Les jeunes filles du village portent de belles robes de toutes couleurs: rouges, bleues, vertes, jaunes et roses. Des fleurs poussent dans les jardins, et les arbres sont tres grands. J ' aime surtout le beau coucher de soleil. Oh! Le village est si joli! Eve Krupski, Form II, Fairley House. LE CHIEN DE MISERE IL Y AVAIT une fois dans la foret de pauvres gens ay ant un chien brun aux poils frises. C ' etait un beau chien, mais, helas, il avait un vice des plus terribles — il aimait beaucoup courir apres les oiseaux: les oiseaux petits, grands, rouges ou jaunes. Un jour il a couru apres la pauvre petite Sally Wren, qui, dans son effort frenetique pour partir, a dechire sa frele patte sur un bidon d ' etain. Oh! la pauvre, pauvre Sally! Mais pendant ce temps-la, les gens pensaient au destin de notre petit chien — Et c ' etait vraiment terrible! Un jour quand le petit chien courait apres un malheureux petit oiseau — ZOOM — quel est ce bruit que nous entendons? Ce n ' est pas Superman — Non, ce sont tous les oiseaux de Farbre vert. Deux portent le chien par ses oreilles, un plus grand, un merle, porte sa queue, et ils s ' envolent au loin avec une bande victorieuse d ' oiseaux derriere eux. Bientot ils sont arrives a une clairiere dans la foret. Les oiseaux ont convert notre heros de miel, donne par Billy Bee, et aussi de feuilles et Font emporte vers sa maison. Imaginez le chagrin du petit chien! Si vous alliez dans notre foret, vous ecouteriez le gazouillement des oiseaux et Faboiement de leur bon ami, le chien, qui ne court jamais plus apres les grands oiseaux, ou les petits, ou les oiseaux rouges, ou les jaunes. Mais, je vous dirai un secret: Maintenant, il court apres les ecureuils — Mais pour la fin de cette histoire-ci, vous devrez attendre le cahier de Trafalgar Fannee prochaine. Alberta Anderson, Form Vb, Barclay House. TRIOLET Qu ' il y a beaucoup de bruit Dans la salle qui est la notre. Toutes les enfants poussent des cris — Qu ' il y a beaucoup de bruit! Chacune parle a son amie, Chacune crie plus fort que Fautre. Qu ' il y a beaucoup de bruit Dans la salle qui est la notre! Caryl Churchill, Form Vb, Cumming House. [37] MA PROMENADE UN JOUR, apres avoir quitte I ' ecole, je reviendrai pour lui rendre visite. Marchant a travers les corridors et m ' arretant dans les salles de classe, je me souviendrai de tous les jours que je passai ici. EUe est pareille a celle que je quittai et je me vois m ' asseoir a une place avec les autres fillettes. Sur un tableau noir il y aura les devoirs de fran ais, d ' ang lais et d ' algebre avec lesquels je combattis. Sur les bureaux des professeurs des fleurs; sur les pupitres des livres et des souliers. Dans le gymnase je verrai les enfants qui feront leurs exercices pour Mademoiselle Boite. Une cloche sonnera. II y aura un bruit universel et puis le silence. Avec celui-ci, je me souviendrai bien de ma vieille ecole. Dana Hopson, Form IVb, Fairley House. L ' HIVER LES EMPREINTES de pas apparaissent sur la terre couronnee de neige; les lapins avec leurs grandes oreilles flasques risquent un coup d ' oeil autour de I ' arbre; et alors je vois les grandes branches noires. Dans le ciel bleu il y a beaucoup de nuages blancs doux comme du satin. La neige miroite comme un diamant et un des plus grands arbres projette une ombre sur moi. II n ' y a pas d ' oiseaux en hiver, mais dans cet arbre on pent voir un nid noir et solitaire. Co mme un vent glacial souffle je fremis et me tourne. Une jolie petite ferme se dresse tout au loin, la fumee s ' eleve en spirales de la cheminee, et je commence a courir et enfin la petite porte rouge est ouverte et je suis dedans. Susan Hallett, Form Vb, Barclay House. LES CONCERTS SYMPHONIQUES LES CONCERTS SYMPHONIQUES ont heu dans I ' auditorium du " High School de Montreal " . lis sont diriges, par le Dr. Wilfrid Pelletier et ils commencent a dix heures et demie. Les enfants viennent a dix heures ou un peu plus tard pour trouver de bonnes places. Ils entrent tranquillement, gargons et filles, quelques-uns avec leurs amis et d ' autres tout seuls. Avant que les concerts commencent, on entend les enfants qui parlent doucement Tun a I ' autre. Voila! le concert commence. Tout est tranquille, les enfants arretent de parler. Le voici! Le Dr. Wilfrid Pelletier lui-meme. II explique aux enfants tellement bien la piece que son orchestre va jouer. C ' est tres important qu ' un orchestre ait un bon guide. Cet homme est le Dr. Wilfrid Pelletier. Ces concerts sont interessants pour tous. Les personnes qui ne peuvent pas jouer un instrument les trouvent aussi interessants que ceux qui jouent bien. De jeunes artistes ont une bonne chance de se faire remarquer, parce que le Dr. Pelletier les invite a jouer de leur instrument dans son concert.

We were not given any sewing, so we spent our time on other activities, such as making scrapbooks. Quite a number of these were put together, with subjects to suit everyone — geographical ones for the person interested in travel, scrapbooks on automobiles and engines for the mechanical boy. Another new idea was the making of jig-saw puzzles. These were made of colourful pictures found in magazines which were pasted onto cardboard and then cut into small interlocking pieces. This Christmas, we sent to the Red Cross a box of toys that were collected from the girls. Books, stuffed animals, dolls and games are only a few of the things that were sent. The two main House projects for the Red Cross were collecting one pound of stamps (the common ones that everybody receives on letters) and knitting afghan squares. Knitting was a very popular way of obtaining House points too. At the end of the Spring term, the Houses had an exhibition of work done during the fir st and second terms. Many thanks to Miss Russell for the time that she has willingly devoted to helping us to make articles that will be appreciated and enjoyed. Laureeiv Hicks, Upper II, Fairley House. INTER-HIGH-SCHOOL COUNCIL THE YEAR 1953-54 has been a busy one for the Junior Red Cross Inter-High-School Council of Montreal. As well as all the knitting for overseas relief, supplies for needy families, both here and abroad, health kits, and Cerebral Palsy equipment which has been made by schools, speech therapy has been organized, favours made for hospitalized children, and clothing collected for the Girls ' Cottage School at St. Bruno. Each year the Inter-High-School Council chooses one major project for which to raise money by donations, dances, sales, etc. in the individual schools. This year the Council voted to buy an Anhydrator, or Chemical Film Dryer, and a Pass Box for the Children ' s Memorial Hospital. This project, costing approximately $2,200, was the most expensive undertaken to date by the Council. The Pass-Box, which is an accessory to the Anhydrator, was purchased separately by Miss Edgar ' s and Miss Cramp ' s School. The formal presentation of the Anhydrator will take place in May in the X-Ray Department of the Outpatients Department of the Hospital. To this main project of the year, Trafalgar donated $50, which was raised by collection. At the beginning of the school year, the School for Crippled Children asked the Council to donate to them three wheelchairs, two junior type costing $108 each, and one adult, costing $146.70. This need has been filled by several of the schools, individually. The annual Junior Red Cross Variety Revue was presented for two performances for the first time in the history of the Show. The performances were at Montreal High and West Hill High on Friday, March 5th, and Friday, March 12th, respectively. The profits of the show are expected to be in the neighbourhood of $700, and these will go to Far Eastern Relief. The Revue [41] 42] will be taken to two Veterans ' Hospitals for their enjoyment — Queen Mary Hospital on April 30th, and Ste. Anne ' s on May 7th. In the Variety Revue Trafalgar was well represented, as two girls from the Vlth Form, Margaret Milne and Christine Catto, participated, the former as a vocalist, and the latter reciting a monologue. Linda McDougall, one of Trafalgar ' s representatives to the Council, and a group of Vlth Formers served as usherettes at the Montreal High performance, and Carolyn Grossmann directed. Over 80 tickets were sold by the School, which made a sum of about $40. It is much to Trafalgar ' s credit that in a Council where schools of such size and such facilities abound, she should nevertheless hold her own as she does. Our thanks go to Miss Russell who has leaped into her task of Red Cross mistress with much energy and interest, and who has borne with the Red Cross Representatives in many problems, and we must also thank Miss E. Lorraine How, Director of the Junior Red Cross, for her help to us this year. Carolyn Grossmann, Arts VI, Gumming House. THE YOUNG PEOPLE ' S SYMPHONY CONCERTS EIGHT SATURDAY mornings each winter, many girls from Traf. go down to the Montreal High School auditorium to hear one of the Young People ' s Concerts conducted by Dr. Wilfrid Pelletier. These concerts are enjoyed very much by all who attend. They are organized by a very able committee of twelve ladies. Miss Gurd was president for the past two seasons, and Madame Prieur, who was ticket convenor, is the new pr esident. The Tuesday morning before the concert, in Music Appreciation class, Madame Prieur reviews the programme for the coming concert, telling us what will be played and who the soloists are to be. Every year, in Music Appreciation class, each girl in the Fourth Form makes a scrapbook. These require a great deal of work, but are always enjoyed for many years after. Last year, in June, Elizabeth Dingman won Madame Prieur ' s prize for the best scrapbook. Each year at these concerts there are musical painting, scrapbook and question contests in which Traf did exceptionally well this year. Sally Tingle, of IIIb, took first prize in the painting contest, age group 11-14, with Betsy Burrows of IVb coming second. In the question contest, age group 11-14, Lucile Robert, IIIb, came in second place. In the scrapbook contest, age 11-14, Sandra Keymer of IVb came first, and Sandra Kovacs, also of IVb, tied with Dawn Marshall of IVa for the second prize. Dr. Pelletier of the New York Philharmonic Young People ' s Concerts conducts different types of music at these concerts. One composition which we all especially enjoyed was the " Farewell Symphony " by Haydn, played as it was in the days of Haydn. When each member of the orchestra had finished playing his part, he would nonchalantly stand up and walk out. At each concert we are questioned by Dr. Pelletier concerning the instruments of the orchestra. We write the answers to these questions on forms on the backs of our programmes. The soloists were originally invited by Dr. Pelletier from New York, but now they are talented young Montrealers chosen through audition. At one [43] concert this year, we were very fortunate in having Dr. Pelletier ' s wife, Rose Bampton, with us. At the end of the concert. Dr. Pelletier plays a short and very peppy piece, such as " Sleigh Ride " by Leroy Anderson, for the benefit of the younger concert-goers. Many thanks to Dr. Pelletier for our wonderful concerts, and to Miss Gurd for organizing everything so well this year. Also many thanks and all the best of luck to our own Madame Prieur for helping us to learn about and to understand this great world of music. Sandra Keymer, Form IVb, Gumming House. SCENES FROM " ARMS AND THE MAN " acted by Lower Canada College and Trafalgar, Summer Term 1953. THE HOUSES 1 IMAGINE that many outsiders who don ' t know the functions of the school very well are sometimes a little puzzled as to just what the Houses are. If you were to look up " house " in the dictionary, you would find that it meant " building for habitation or for some specified purpose, etc. " and after considering this a few moments decide that it wasn ' t the kind of house you were looking for. So the thing to do, it would seem, would be to ask a Trafalgar girl — but it is my experience that these interesting creatures are always busy, always in a rush, and never have time to explain such things to uninformed parents. Therefore I shall put the definition down in writing, so that all may see what a House, in the school sense of the word, is. The school is divided into four competitive sections, from Form II upwards — the younger girls don ' t belong to the Houses. These Houses are all [44] named after outstanding people in the school ' s history: Barclay and Ross after two men instrumental in starting the school, Gumming and Fairley after two former headmistresses. The Houses instil into the school a very keen sense of competition, and give the girls something to work for throughout the year. They teach the art of co-operation, and, for the older girls, are a very good means of developing an all-important sense of responsibility. During the school year, there are various competitions among the Houses. In the fall is the " House Competition " . This is named in this uninformative manner because it changes every year — singing sometimes, or a fashion show, a hobby show, skits, tableaux, and so on. This year it was a singing competition, each House singing a religious song, another song of its own choosing, and a House song written especially for the occasion. The winner was Gumming, with Fairley second. Later on in the year there are Inter-House basketball games, and towards the end of May there is an Inter-House field day. And last, but not least, is the Inter-House shield, given in June to the House which has accumulated the most points throughout the year. The girls may obtain points by reading books on a certain list, and being tested on them; by doing knitting and sewing and making scrapbooks for the Red Gross; points are also given for good scholastic work, for good conduct and for doing useful acts such as playing the hymns. Points are taken off for bad marks, detentions and conduct marks. In closing, this year ' s House Heads would like to extend their best wishes to the Houses in the years to come. May the Houses thrive, and continue the good work that they are doing in the school. Good luck to each of them ! Vicky Gumyn, Arts VI, Fairley House. HOUSE HEADS Barclay- Judy Brow Margaret Peters Cumming Elizabeth Brooks Carolyn Grossmann Fairley Vicky Cumyn Margot McLean Ross Pamela Bolton Maiire Gorman THE CUMMING HOUSE SONG words by Caryl Churchill We are here to sing of Cumming, Sing to Cumming ' s praise! We are here to sing of Cumming, And could sing of it for days. Proving that we are the best House, Is the object of this song; We ' re getting better every year, for Cumming ' s coming on! When McGregor crashes through here, Who will stand it best? Who will salvage from the wreckage Bent House-pins and a crest? Who will help book-tests and bad marks To bravely go along? Cumming is the House we mean, for Cumming ' s coming on! We will read and knit for House points, Filling up each card. Since we took Miss Cumming ' s name, we Have all been working hard. And when things are going badly Miss Cam will cheer us on, Book-tests will outnumber bad marks, Cumming ' s coming on! We are here to sing of Cumming, Sing to Cumming ' s praise! We are here to sing of Cumming, And could sing of it for days. But our motto ' s " Deeds not Words " , so We must end this song. Just remember we ' re the best House, Cumming ' s coming on! [45] [46] CHRISTMAS CAROL SINGING NE OF Trafalgar ' s traditions is the presentation of a Christmas Carol Service, and it is difficult to explain why we look forward to Carol Singing with so much excitement. Primarily, perhaps, we await it with excite- ment because it is the final hurdle before we leap into the lush holidays, and because it so mercifully takes our minds off our fateful exams and gives us something to think about in those bleak days while the staff industriously mark our feeble attempts. But, as well as this, the Carol Singing is a goal to work towards in singing classes, especially in the past two years since the formation of the Special Choir, and no matter how many times we have participated, we all feel that sense of hushed electricity in the air. Every year the write-up in " Echoes " states that " this year saw the best performance ever given " , and I again maintain the same, for it is quite obvious that, as Mrs. Meek gets to know us better, she can spend more time garnishing our selections. This year ' s programme was a blend of the old favourites without which Carol Singing would be incomplete, and old and modern folk carols which added a simple charm to our performance. With the background of the Madonna and Child, made by Miss Capel and her special art class, completing the picture in the same mood, the entire school started off with a rousing welcome to the audience, called " Masters in This Hall " , an old French carol. We added to this hospitality by inviting them to join us in singing " While Shepherds Watched " . Another French tune, " Waking Time " , was sung by the Senior Forms, and the Juniors contrasted its quick light-heartedness with the quiet and tender " In the Bleak Midwinter " , by Gustav Hoist. Both groups joined to sing the favourite " Unto Us a Boy Is Born " with much spirit. The Special Choir made its first appearance with a group of three carols — the peaceful fifteenth century carol " This Endris Night " , followed by the simple and direct " D ' ou Viens-tu Bergere? " , in which Margaret Milne sang the solo part, and ending with " Lo, How a Rose E ' er Blooming " , by Praetorius, which was done very effectively in three parts. The school carried on this quiet atmosphere with " Silent Night " , and then swung into the German tune of Herrick ' s " What Sweeter Music Can We Bring? " , with the Special Choir singing the descant. Not to be outdone, the Junior Forms sang the liltingly simple " Rocking " , an old Czech carol, and the rest of the School joined them for the French " All Ye Mountains, Praise the Lord " . For its final contribution the Special Choir sang two lullabies, " Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head " , an old Appalachian carol, and " Myn Lyking " , a light carol made more interesting by its dialect. This carol, by R. R. Terry, was sung by a chorus and three soloists, Carolyn Bedford-Jones, Judy McDougall, and Carolyn Grossmann. The Cornish " Sans-Day Carol " was sung, and " On This Day Earth Shall Ring " , another Gustav Hoist selection, finished the Carol Service with the same note of gusto with which it began. " O Come, All Ye Faithful " was sung as a closing hymn. Once more we pay tribute to Mrs. Meek, who in two short years has done so much with so little. We thank both her and Miss Lyman for their patience [47] in teaching us, and for giving up their Wednesday afternoons to the Special Choir, and we can only hope that Carol Singings will continue to improve as much in the coming years. Carolyn Grossmann, Arts VI, Cumming House. MRS. CHOY ' S VISIT ON WEDNESDAY, February 17th, we all had a very interesting morning when Mrs. Elizabeth Suzanne Moy Choy came to speak to us about her native Malaya and Singapore. She told us how some explorer founded Singapore in 1819. He thought it would make a wonderful harbour because of its marvellous natural harbour. Singapore is at the very tip of the Malay peninsula, so it is a very busy place. One sees many different races there, and, as Mrs. Choy pointed out, all the people are friendly and there is no racial discrimination. Mrs. Choy teaches school in Singapore, and she said that boys of all nationalities are taught side by side in a friendly atmosphere. Mrs. Choy explained and modelled some clothes. First she showed us a sarong which was handwoven. It was heavy material and had a beautiful silver design on it. This was wrapped around the waist and held by a six-yard sash of deep purple, wound round and round the waist. Then she put on a blouse, which had no buttons, but was held together by three pins. She explained to us about the veil which is worn by many of the women in Malaya. It is hand-painted and some of the more modest women wear it over their mouths and noses, but the more modern women use it only as a scarf. Then Mrs. Choy showed us a hat of the kind which is worn when the women go out to plant rice in the paddies. It was made of grasses and long weeds, expertly woven and dyed, and formed in. a sort of conical shape. Two ribbons are usually worn to hold it on. Mrs. Choy was a very nice woman and had such a manner as to put us all at ease at once. All in all, we had a very enjoyable, and most informative, time. Frances Kornpointer, Form IIIa, Fairley House. THE PROJECTOR Through the kindness of the Old Girls, the school has seen several films during the year. Last summer term, the forms from Upper II up saw " A Tale of Two Cities " . This year, in the mornings, a film on Medieval Castles, one on Canada, " Canadian Pattern " , and " Nature ' s Half-Acre " were shown to several forms; and " Too Young to Kiss " and " Henry V " were shown in the gym on Friday afternoons. The school is very grateful to the Old Girls for the gift of the projector, and for the interest they are taking in its use. [48] THE GRADUATION DANCE THE WEEKS before the long-awaited " Grad " Dance were weeks of much confusion. What theme shall we use, how many decorations can we obtain, who will have parties, were typical of the questions buzzing between the two Sixth Forms. After much discussion and weighing of pros and cons, we finally decided on a simple " Spring Graduation " theme which seemed suitable. The eagerly anticipated day dawned at last; classes seemed to drag past so slowly. After a hurried lunch, the girls dashed up to the gym to put up the streamers, flowers and backdrop. The sombre old assembly hall took on a gay atmosphere, and the effect was very rewarding. Then we went home to dress, a pleasant task over which everyone laboured meticulously, I am sure. We all gathered at Ann Packham ' s for punch, and, the first tension over, all seemed to begin to enjoy themselves. Once we reached our destinations for dinner, the party was in full swing, and after enjoying a delicious meal, we left for the school. The gym looked wonderful, and when the couples began to dance to the scintillating music of " The Blue Serenaders " , everything was complete. The dancing lasted until one o ' clock, when we went to Chris ' s where a singsong finished off the evening. All in all it was an enjoyable evening, one that I ' m sure we will not soon forget. Our thanks go to the Old Girls Association for their help and kindness in making this dance possible. We hope the Class of ' 55 will have as good a time as we did.

The first team cup this year was won by Trafalgar, who won three out of four games, forced to a sudden death play-off with The Study. The second team was not so successful this year but should do better next year as they have now more experience. This year we played against Westmount Senior High and against Montreal High. Both these games were very good and we hope to play again next year. Everyone is anxiously looking forward to the inter-form and inter-house matches to be played next term. Good Luck All!

[63 I SISTERS ARE so stupid! For months my sister, Jane, had been yakking away about the Gym Dem her school puts on every year, and I ' d had to cram my fingers in my ears to keep the noise out. Then she really got a brainwave at breakfast one day — " Mom, why don ' t you make David go? " and I decided it was time to collect my marbles, pick up my baseball bat, and leave for school. But Mom thought it was a terrific idea, that I ' d simply adore it, and when I tried to get Pop to help me, he just kicked my foot under the table and shrugged his shoulders. Man, is he ever henpecked, boy! So that ' s how I got roped into getting all washed and dressed like a sissy in a white shirt and a tie, and going to Traf. ' s Gym Dem. I felt quite good because, though they let me in easily, I saw a couple of big boys from my school being told they couldn ' t come. Anyway, pretty soon the show began, and I got ready to pull out my comics. A lady played the piano and a whole bunch of girls and boys came in folk dancing. The girls were wearing those circle skirts that Jane makes, and the boys (just girls pretending they were boys) wore shorts. After they danced, some real little kids in blue and white shorts and shirts came in and played games, and I started to wonder whether to try out for Bantam Track. Then even smaller girls came out to do exercises, and just as I was beginning to wonder how much younger they were going to get, some bigger kids came in wearing white shorts and red belts and carrying " wands " , and they did exercises too. I was just starting on my third wad of bubble gum when my sister ' s class came in and did a drill in dead quiet. Just in the middle I busted a bubble, and, gee, I didn ' t know it was going to pop so loud, and everyone in the gym looked at me. Boy, was Mom ever mad! Anyway, for once my sister didn ' t mess it up, and she actually was quite good; but don ' t tell her I said so. After the quiet exercises, they brought out a contraption called a vaulting horse, and for girls they jumped over it pretty good. A couple of them went over straight in sort of a backbend, and it was real keen. The girls in black stockings climbed ropes all the way up to the top, and though my school could ' ve done better, if I ' d been a sissy I would ' ve been scared when they came down with their arms out. But if I ' d been there, I would ' ve zoomed down them, not gone so slowly. In the tumbling the older kids did pyramids and stuff, but the best was the elephant and camel walk — I ' d like to see Granny doing that! Some of the girls jumped over the whole box like they were Trigger. Then came the funniest — " Good Morning " — a whole bunch of little girls doing exercises like Mom does every morning, to a record with the gym teacher ' s voice on it. They [64] were wearing pyjamas and one of them wore blue and white striped ones just Hke mine. The Upper lis marched after that, and they wore red shorts and red or white shirts. They were good, but I Uked our Cadet Corps better, and after them the biggest Vlth Form girls did exercises in white shorts and blue sashes. The music was keen, and it was from that terrific movie " Hans Christian Andersen " that I saw with all the guys the day I spilled popcorn all over me. There was balancing, too, and that was good, boy — they walked through hoops and no one dropped a ball they were tossing, either. The last thing was skipping and this was typical for girls, and I decided to read my comic because I see girls skipping every day, but Mom wouldn ' t let me. Finally the last thing was the Grand March — all the girls in the whole school walked in and there were girls and more girls — thousands of them. Gee, I ' d hate to have to go to school with all that many. Anyway they marched in good, and then sang " God Save the Queen " , and marched out. Jane winked at me, and I made a face back at her, and Mom was mad as anything. Carolyn Grossmann, Arts VI, Gumming House. [65] OLD GIRLS ' NOTES T.O.G.A. Executive Committee, 1953-54 Honorary President . President . . 1st Vice-President . . 2nd Vice-President . . 3rd Vice-President . . Corresponding Secretary Recording Secretary Treasurer VI Form Representatives Dr. Foster Mrs. Gordon Liersch (Celeste Belnap) Mrs. J. H. R. Guthrie (Editha Wood) Mrs. J. A. D. Falkner (Eloise Fairie) Mrs. David Millar (Elizabeth Kendall) Nan Carlin Sylvia Dennis Mrs. G. R. Duncan (Frances Earle) Virginia Gates and Susan Birks PRESIDENT ' S JOTTINGS (i(ir I iHE PURPOSE of the Association shall be to foster a spirit of loyalty, J_ fraternity and help among the graduates and former students of Trafalgar School, and to bring about a united and concentrated action in promoting the welfare and advancing the interests, influence and usefulness of the School. " Thus reads Article II of our constitution. Having had this purpose in mind throughout the year, we should like to report to members, students and all who are interested in TOGA, some of this year ' s highlights. The Annual Meeting was held in the Ritz Ballroom on June 9th, 1953, and it really was a grand dinner reunion with everyone in fine form. The VI Form were our guests, and in spite of approaching matrics turned up almost 100%. After some business, Alice Johannsen Turnham spoke to us about the McGill Museum, of which she is director, and had us rolling in the aisles. I had no idea museums could be made so lively! This year finds us with 205 paid-up members, a 25% increase over last year. We desperately need a large and active membership and hope that this rate of increase will continue, so that our general meetings will outgrow the Drawing Room at school and we ' ll have to throw open the doors of the Gym. But we do have notoriously bad luck with the weather, especially at our fall meeting. On Nov. 25th we had a general meeting, with some important business and a programme designed to draw a crowd. Mrs. Jennifer Lindsay from Eaton ' s fashion bureau spoke to us most engagingly on fashion trends, even bringing samples of hats with her, antique and modern. There was time later for chatting, and refreshments were served, but it poured rain that night so that the membership could hardly be blamed for choosing their television sets at home rather than a meeting that involved being away from home. It was decided that night, by a majority vote, to change our Life Member- ship. The fee for this type of membership is now $25.00, and the member must have left school at least 25 years previous to becoming a Life Member. Of course this change does not apply to our present Life Members. The [66] second motion to be passed that evening was to ask any member wishing the magazine to notify Nan Carlin, our corresponding secretary. In this way members with girls at the school won ' t find " Echoes " re-echoed to the extent of 2 or 3 copies in their home, and those without access to the magazine will still receive it as before. All members received a note with regard to the change. The Grad Dance, sponsored by TOGA and produced by a joint committee of VI Form and TOGA members, was held at the school on Jan. 29th. I ' m always amazed that a gymnasium can look as glamorous as the girls manage to make the Traf gym look on the night of the dance. This year the theme was Graduation, with many flowers and a backdrop and fixings that included the traditional symbols of mortarboards and scrolls. The gaiety and enthusiasm of the guests spoke for the success of the dance. Exactly a week later we held our money-raising project, a Barn Dance and raffle, at Victoria Hall. Lib Millar and Renee Prud ' homme really knocked themselves out to make this the gay party that it was. A Barn Dance must certainly be the best mixer that was ever dreamed up. All age groups seemed to enjoy themselves thoroughly, and the stunning prizes collected by Renee and her committee were drawn for and distributed that night, adding to the gaiety. It was all great fun and our Scholarship Fund was increased by the sizeable amount of more than $700. Remember the projector for wh ich you all worked so hard a couple of years ago? Well, it ' s had a real work-out this year. By the time you read this, four recreational films and three educational ones will have been shown at school. Bunny Falkner, as chairman of the projector committee, has done a grand job of working up mileage on the machine! The " movies for fun " are carefully screened so as to be suitable and interesting to all grades in the school. The students pay 25 cents for these, and this covers the cost of rental and helps to finance the educational films shown in the classrooms. These latter ones are generally requested by the teachers and shown by Bunny or a member of her committee to three or four classes in one morning. As 1954 is a Scholarship year, Nora Nicholls and her committee have been extra busy getting out notices to the various public schools where there are students eligible to write the scholarship examsl We are proud of our scholarship girls. There are always two of them in school, and half of their fees are paid by the Association for the four years that they are at Traf. Organizations such as TOGA never stand still. They either progress or grow weary and die. It is only through the help and enthusiasm of the members that progress can be achieved. We thank all of you who have been able to give some time to helping this association and hope that there will be others who will be in a position to give time next year, so that we may continue to grow and to " advance the interests, influence and usefulness of the School " . We are grateful also to our many friends who have supported us with their continued interest in 1953-54. Best of luck to the VI Form, and we hope to see you around next year. Celeste B. Liersch.
