Barbara Schwartz [11] [12] HIS EXCELLENCY, THE RIGHT HONOURABLE VINCENT MASSEY GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF CANADA Trafalgar was honoured by a visit from His Excellency, the Governor-General, this year on February 10th, the day of the official opening of the new wing of the school. Mr. Massey ' s speech, which was extremely well suited to the mixed audience to which he spoke, dealt with the building of a Canadian tradition from the contributions of the peoples of many countries which make up the Canadian nation. He particularly stressed the British tradition which, he said, has been most closely followed and adapted to life on this side of the world. Mr. Massey won the hearts of the students by turning to Dr. Foster and declaring, " I am really going to ask you to be so kind as to give the girls, on whatever day seems convenient, a full holiday, which I have the honour to request as the Queen ' s representative, on my first visit to this school. " Mr. Massey ' s visit was an event that will long be remem- bered by every girl in the school, from the youngest Pre- paratory to the members of the Graduating Class. tl3] EDITORIAL THE SCHOOL YEAR of 1955-56 has meant for Trafalgar the fulfilment of years of speculation, dreaming and planning. Our school was forced to keep up with the constant progress of modern civilization and met the challenge with all the calm courage that Trafalgar tradition stands for. McGregor Street now runs through the Laboratory, Art room and class-rooms used by students since 1915, but a sparkling, up-to-date wing adjoining the original heart of Trafalgar serves to remind the world that old traditions together with new equipment can produce a better balanced and improved standard of education. Change is good for any institution provided that it is change for the better, and, throughout this year ' , it has been proved that change was good for Tra- falgar. However, I am sure that there were many occasions during the cons- truction and adjustment periods that left those most concerned a little uncertain as to the desirability of this upset and confusion. Such incidents as the ceiling of Dr. Foster ' s office being propped up with a pole to prevent the plaster from falling, or the suffering of a Prefect stumbling through the morning lesson, with various hammerings and hangings as serious competition, may be smiled about now, but at the time they were neither convenient nor amusing. Who of us will forget prayers being held in the middle corridor for the first week of the year because the varni sh on the Gym floor was not dry, or the appear- ance of a workman through the back wall of the Gym during a Folk Dancing rehearsal for the Gym Demonstration? Life at Trafalgar this year has been a busy and exciting affair. " New " was the key word. Upon returning in September we faced not only a new school building, but also the realization that there were a great many new girls to get to know. In the days that followed, the latest items of school gossip concerned the " new " desks that arrived for the " new " classrooms, or the " new " family that had moved into the " new " superintendent ' s apartment. The old Trafalgar spirit was still there, though, apparent to old and new girls alike. The same familiar routine was followed each day, and the events by which the school is known to parents and friends arrived one by one to remind us that last year was not so far away as it might seem. The Trafalgar Tea offered an added attraction — a tour of the new school guided by some of the senior girls. The Carol Singing, the Grad Dance and the Gym Dem, all of which took place in the old Gym, made us turn from the new to consider for a moment past editions of these events and the girls and staff members who made them a reality then. The high point of the year was, of course, the presence of His Excellency, the Governor-General, at the official opening of the new wing. We were indeed happy to have such a distinguished guest, and his visit will long be remembered by Trafalgar girls. As this magazine goes to print, we at Trafalgar are eagerly awaiting another new addition to the social life of the school — the musical evening to take place in May. We hope that its success will establish it as a permanent and well loved part of the Trafalgar year. As the year draws to a close, I believe it may truly be called a successful one, recalling our motto, " Spem successus alit " — " Success nourishes hope " .

Hon. Vincent Massey, came to visit us. The time was 11.00 a.m. on February 10th, 1956; the place: our Gym; and the occasion: the official opening of the new wing of our school. A hush fell over the Gym as His Excellency, followed by our Dr. Foster and other distinguished guests, entered. We all sang " God Save The Queen " and then Mr. Massey was introduced to us by Archdeacon Gower-Rees — as if we didn ' t know him already! His Excellency ' s speech, or rather his talk, was wonderful — so informal! I am sure we all felt as if we had known him for years as a personal friend. He asked Dr. Foster if, to commemorate the occasion, she would give us a full holiday, a holiday which we are to call " The Queen ' s Holiday " . In spite of all the work we have to do in such a short time, Dr. Foster agreed, to the great joy of us all, especially the little Preparatories in the front row. Dr. Foster ' s address to the Governor-General was very appropriate for the occasion. It made us proud that she is our Principal. She looked so nice — as did everyone: the teachers with their gowns, caps and hoods showing their various degrees, we girls, with our tunics neatly pressed and shoes shined. Our Head Girl, Lynne Harrison, thanked His Excellency for us. She seemed to express exactly how we felt, and it made us proud of her when we afterwards learned that he, himself, had told her that she had done very well. Following this, we sang " Come, Loyal Hearts " , a closing prayer was said by Dr. Berlis, and " O Canada " was sung. The ceremony was over, but not the memories. Now, the Governor-General was taken through the new building by Dr. Foster while we patiently waited downstairs to see him off. Our prefects, staff members and special guests were presented to him upstairs, at this time. When the time came for Mr. Massey to leave, just before he went out of the door, we all gathered around him and gave him three cheers. Did we ever cheer, too! Then, as he got into his car, some of us went to the windows to wave good-bye. As his car started down the hill, he turned and waved back. This was the greatest — the perfect ending to a perfect day. Shall we ever forget it? Shirley Hatfield, Form Vb, Ross House. A few comments by the girls on our Big Day: — The thing that impressed me most about Friday was the teachers marching in wearing their caps, gowns and hoods, and sitting on the platform. The Governor-General laughed heartily when one of the Preparatory pupils stated in a loud voice as her picture was taken, " I closed my eyes that time! " Dr. Foster ' s speech was amusing when it came to the part where she said she was offered a job with the construction company. As the Governor-General was cheered away, the shining face I remember was Mr. King ' s as he proudly held the door for His Excellency.

THE FIRST EVENT this year was the House Competition which took the form of a Variety Revue. After much arranging, secrecy and confusion, it was held on November 30th and was greatly enjoyed by all. We congratulate the winners — Fairley — for their wonderful " boat-load " of entertainment. The amount of Red Cross contributions shows that this year we have many enthusiastic workers. Our thanks go to the members of all Houses who have shown so much spirit, and especially to our untiring Red Cross Reps, who have done so much for the Houses and the school. Cumming and Barclay are proud to have completed afghans already. Congratulations to all the girls who received " G " badges, stars, and Honourable Mentions. We also welcomed those basketball points from school team members! We are all eagerly looking forward to the Inter-House Basket- ball and Tennis matches and Field Day, all coming up in the near future. [18] The race for House points has been a very close one. At Christmas, Gumming led the pack, followed by Barclay and Ross, who were only three points apart, and then Fairley. However, the Easter totals showed an upset, with Barclay taking the lead followed by Ross, Gumming and Fairley. May the best House win in June! The Houses will soon be participating in the annual Spelling Bee — more points for the " spellingest " House! A sincere thank-you goes to our patient and helpful House Mistresses, and to our Fifth Form Reps, for their loyal co-operation throughout the year. We wish next year ' s Houses the best of luck, and hope that they will have as much fun working together as we have had this year. The House Heads. Barclay Gumming Fairley Ross Beth Gorden Gail Fitzpatrick Fenny Farndale Lynne Harrison Sandra Kovacs Sandra Keymer Margaret Grace Morton Garol Glark JUNIOR RED CROSS JUNIOR RED GROSS work this year has been under the direction of Miss Murray, assisted by four House Reps. A great deal of work was undertaken, and successfully accomplished. Ten layettes were completed, 79 scrapbooks and 31 puzzles of various sizes and types were also made; squares for afghans were turned out in hundreds; 650 articles of knitting and sewing were com- pleted, among which 91 animals were joyfully received by bed-ridden children. Over 20 pounds of used stamps was sent to headquarters in aid of the Grippled and Handicapped Children ' s Fund. Traf was among the earliest schools to get 100% enrolment. 240 Red Gross calendars and $28 worth of pins and badges were sold — amounting to $52 for Overseas Relief. This year the J. R. G. Council ' s special fund raising project was a station wagon for the School for Grippled Children, amounting to $3,000. Traf aided in this endeavour with a collection. At Christmas a large carton of toys and 55 filled stockings were sent to the Christmas Fund. On February 20th, four of us participated in the Salute to the Red Gross held at the Forum. As the usual annual Variety Revue was cancelled this year, a fudge sale raised money for Overseas Relief. Everyone ' s combined efforts and hard work have been gratefully acknow- ledged by Miss E. Lorraine How of the Junior Red Gross. So, keep up the enthusiasm. On behalf of the Reps, I would like to express my very appre- ciative thanks to Miss Murray for the time that she has willingly devoted to helping us make this such a successful year. It has been enjoyable work, so good luck to all in the future, and never forget the motto of the Red Gross — " I Serve " . Joan Mann, Arts VI, Ross House. DONATIONS Salvation Army $ 20.00 Montreal Children ' s Hospital 140.00 Welfare Federation 60.00 Junior Red Cross 38.85 [19] SINGING THIS YEAR at Trafalgar, we have considered ourselves extremely lucky to have as our singing teacher Dr. Herbert. For many years he gained expe- rience in various phases of music and singing, and throughout the past school year he has shown us what it is to sing well, and, in his own words, " to get a thrill out of it, too " ! With never a dull moment in his classes, we have all worked with enthusiasm and enjoyment to reach the standard Dr. Herbert has set for us. October found us up to our ears in Christmas music, and in December Dr. Herbert led the school in a highly successful Christmas concert, including such varied items as " The Indian Carol " , " The Holly and the Ivy " , and " Jolly Old St. Nicholas " . The special choir, also ably conducted by Dr. Herbert, is a group of girls particularly interested in singing and willing to spend time on other songs. It was wonderful to learn and sing these new pieces for the Christmas concert! We are at present working hard on " O Lovely Peace " , " The Sun Worshippers ' Song " , and others, for a musical evening on May 4th. This spring concert is an idea of Dr. Herbert ' s, for which we are all pre- paring vigorously. All classes will perform, and the program includes " Bobby Shaftoe " (sung by our Preparatory girls), " Sleigh Song " , and " Clouds O ' er the Summer Sky " . We all thank Dr. Herbert for the great effort he puts into these programs: it is very much appreciated by all of us, and we enjoy working with him! Beth Corden, Arts VI, Barclay House. PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION 1st Prize: Glee Willows The composition is excellent and exposure good. " 2nd Prize: Joan Mann ■ ' Good detail and exposure good. " This year Mr. Keymer has kindly judged this competition. We thank him also for the numerous Sylvania flash bulbs that he has given us. [20] ' TWAS THE NIGHT OF THE GRAD DANCE ' Twas the night of the Grad Dance. Confusion at home! In my bath I was scrubbing in bubbles and foam. My formal was hung by the bedside with care. In hopes a corsage on the waist would be there. The sweet-smelling soap called " Sugar ' n ' Spice " Made me start hoping I ' d really smell nice. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bath to see what was the matter. I peeked through my curtains with greatest of care, " It can ' t be my escort " , I cried in despair. When what to my wondering eyes should appear. But eight tiny roses and a card, oh so dear ! With a sigh of relief I returned to my dressing, A run in my stocking, " Oh no, how distressing! " A shoe and a stocking, — crinolines galore. And I heard Father mumble, " How many more? " Lipstick and powder put on with such pain. And I thought to myself, " What ' s all this going to gain? " At last I was finished and ready to go. " Oh, where is my escort? Don ' t tell me he ' s slow! " With Mum ' s " Do be careful, " and Dad ' s " Not too late, " We set off in the car for our wonderful date. Cocktails at Sue ' s and then on to dinner. The food was ' delish ' , but we ' re not any thinner. At last to the Gym decorated with streamers. Open house after, we enjoyed it at Skeymer ' s. Tired but happy we went home to our beds. While visions of the Grad Dance whirled in our heads. M. G. Morton, Arts VI, Fairley House. On April 14, Miss Louise Masten was married to Mr. P. C. Geddes of Granby.

[31] THE PYRAMIDS Built by the blood of a million slaves. Mute testimony of Egypt ' s glory, They once stood fair and crowned with rays From Ra, the Sun God, famed in story. But of that glory, now alone Remain these blocks of crumbling stone. Full etched against the burning sky. The desert sands swirl round them still. And o ' er the tombs of kings gone by The desert now can work its will. The splendour of an empire, gone As fade the stars when comes the dawn. Though mighty Egypt turned to dust Still they endured, and still they stand ; Their tombs are robbed, their treasures, rust. And all is covered now in sand. But they are timeless as the sea And stars, through all eternity. Anne Begor, Form IVb, Gumming House. DUSK THE SUN was sinking in the west, making the craggy slopes on the western shore mingle with the water in a purple shadow. The reflection of the tall pines welled slightly with the dying movement of the water — not so much a movement, as a deep breathing which hinted at the dormant power of both trees and water. In that reflection the bottom of the lake, shale and sand, could be seen, but elsewhere the lake had locked its secret for the night and the waters were unfathomable black depths. Although visibility would remain for a time yet, the blue haze which precedes darkness had begun already to drape the summit of the hills. No doubt the evening star would soon appear over the forest, and night would descend. From behind an island slipped a canoe, silently propelled by the paddle of a lone man. He paddled with a steady stroke over what appeared to be a predetermined course towards the end of the lake. His presence gave the lake [32] life, and his eagerness for an unknown destination lent the scene mysterious excitement. Then, on the most remote shore, a camp fire flickered from behind the trees. The mystery was cleared, the destination known. High above a bird called on its way homeward. Dusk had arrived, the time for return to shelter, a time to be enjoyed through companionship. Naomi Curry, Arts VI, Barclay House. ON GETTING TO SCHOOL Each morning sharp at five to eight I rush from home or I ' ll be late. I wait and shiver, nerves on edge. For a dawdling bus marked " Cote des Neiges. " At last it comes with bursting seams, Its human load packed like sardines. To gain access we struggle hard. Before the final " Prenez-garde. " I have no tickets, and alas ! The old crab makes me show my pass. I don ' t know what he wants to see — The ghastly picture ' s not like me. And so we swing and bump and sway. As we proceed along the way. I tread on toes, get nasty looks. And struggle with my load of books. My straphanging is quite a feat. For never do I get a seat. At last McGregor comes in sight, And with a struggle I alight. I ' m glad to see the last of thee, Oh monster of the M.T.C. Alice Craib, Form Vb, Ross House. MECHANICAL MANNERISMS MACHINES have very human personalities. Kindness brings out their best qualities, while abuse will make them mean and unco-operative. If you take good care of your machines they will do their work well and stay nice and healthy. Machines are rather delicate creatures and are forever breaking their bones. If a machine has fallen and broken some part of its body, a careless person might try to mend it by using glue and adhesive tape. Of course you are not the careless person, so you should take it to a competent " machine doctor " who will do his best to restore the patient ' s health. (Besides, the adhesive tape and glue method is seldom successful.) As might be expected, with poor handling, a machine will often become sick. If you have adopted one, such as a garbage disposal, you must be extremely careful about its diet. If you feed it carelessly, it is likely to develop a case of acute celery-stringitis or perhaps silverware poisoning. [33] A vacuum cleaner is especially susceptible to diseases of the lungs. If you are not careful, it will very likely begin to cough right in the middle of a cleaning job, rendering it useless for several minutes. When its coughing fit is over, a layer of dust one inch thick will cover everything in the room, and to top things off, the poor vacuum may become violently ill all over the newly cleaned rug. This i s usually considered to be quite a nuisance. To my knowledge, machines have never organized a labour union, but they do have definite ideas about how much work they should do. If a washing machine is given a very heavy load to wash, it may do one of three things. If it is the " I-know-my-rights " type, it will simply refuse to do anything at all. Then again, if it is the neurotic kind of machine, it will take one look at the clothes and then try to strangle itself with them. This is ruinous to both the machine and your clothes. The third type of machine is the industrious sort. It will decide to do all those clothes or die trying. Usually it doesn ' t die, but it does have a nervous breakdown and isn ' t fit to work for weeks. Since all this is very impractical, I suggest that you consult your washer and never give it more work than it feels it can do. Machines are like little children, and when you stop to think about it you really can ' t get along very well without them. Treat them with love and kind- ness, and they will rarely disappoint you. Oh dear! Please excuse me. That wretched stove has just cremated tonight ' s dinner, and I had hoped that it would be nice. Judy Lorenz, Science VI, Barclay House. CHRISTMAS EVE THE SNOW fell softly, transforming the countryside into a white fairyland. Dark green patches still showed on the fir trees surrounding the farmhouse, and contrasted strikingly with the white background of the hillside. There was no sign of life in this corner of the valley, and no light showed in the farm- house windows. Suddenly, a small brown whirlwind tore round the side of the house, barking to be let in. The happy laughter of children echoed through the trees. Three small boys appeared tumbling over each other in their glee. They ran back to their parents, just emerging from the woods, and helped them pull the heavy sled to the door. They lifted the newly-cut fir tree from the sled and dragged it indoors. Light flooded the house. The children began to decorate the tree in the window with strings of popcorn and gaily coloured balls. A church bell rang somewhere in the distance. It was Christmas Eve. Elisabeth McKay, Form IVb, Ross House. MAN ' S PLACE IN SOCIETY WHEN I WAS young I was quite fat and people used to tease me a great deal. At grade school I volunteered to help in the cafeteria, where, after the food was served, I wiped off the tables. As I went around, people offered me their sandwiches, which I took, and sometimes their dessert. This of course did not help my figure, and soon I was nicknamed the " Human Garbage Can. " [34] It was about this time that I started day-dreaming of some day becoming a famous star whom everyone looked up to. I used to go to the stag school dances with my two girl friends, Sandy and Carolyn. We would sit for a while and when no one asked us to dance run to the bathroom to put on more lip- stick or see if our slips were showing. After dances like these I got very dis- couraged, and since they were held once a week I really felt miserable. I went on diet after diet, but nothing seemed to help. Finally I moved to Canada where I did something about my problem. I was isolated a long way out of town with two boys for next door neighbours, one tall and skinny, and the other, the best looking boy I ever set eyes on. I naturally fell in love. I lost weight very rapidly. At night I would wish on the stars to become thin. I dreamed men and boys fell at my feet and I could have the pick of any I wanted. One night I realized that all my dreams were senseless and ridiculous. I was a member of a society and if I wanted to get anywhere I would have to work to achieve my goal. I thought that God had put me on earth for a pur- pose, and I wanted very much to achieve that purpose. I now knew that I wasn ' t ugly, and that I could sing better than some. I liked to act also, and these factors helped me to decide. I knew that I would never be president of the United States, but I wanted to be remembered after my death, and this also helped me to decide. I also realized that where there were leaders there had to be followers, people who watched the stars for instance. Everyone has a place in society, and if that place were empty it would affect everyone. A ditch digger is just as important to society as the president. In the end, maybe owing to selfish reasons or dreams, I still want to be a singer, or take some part in show business. In this way I hope to help mankind through entertainment. This is what I consider my place in society to be. Joan Lorenz, Form IVa, Barclay House. BUILDING BIRD HOUSES WHEN attacking such a worth-while project as building a bird house, one must first consider several important aspects of the situation. The most important thing to discover is whether there is a sufficiently large bird population in the area to necessitate the building of a bird house, because, though bird houses will accommodate just so many birds, one rarely wastes the effort on a few old robins that lost their way while flying south three winters ago and have stayed ever since, or the occasional crow or wood- pecker that drifts past now and then. If there are not enough birds around you, the most advisable step to take is to move to an area in which birds abound before proceeding further with the project. Next, one must hunt for the most suitable tree in which to hang the bird house, because this is important from an architectural point of view. If no tree can be found which provides the maximum amount of protection from cats and small boys, and, at the same time, plenty of succulent insects and leafy branches for recreational purposes, don ' t move again, for some quite respectable bird houses are found at the top of high poles, placed, preferably, near a rich, well-kept garden plot. [35] After having considered the location, one generally decides upon the style of architecture for the bird house. Personal taste accounts for there being no set rule here, but it has been found that an open, airy structure resembling the Greek or Roman palaces, or perhaps something with a definitely modern flair looks appropriate in a tree, while those who prefer pole houses lean more toward a Colonial or Cape Cod design. Gothic architecture is rarely used except in extreme cases. Before actually proceeding with the construction, one must be sure of the dimensions of the bird house. The best bird houses are built with a particular species of bird in mind, and must be made to measure. Thus the hole which becomes the front door must be just big enough to admit these birds and not their larger companions. This entails measuring a bird round the middle, and, as they are often most uncooperative, may result in your becoming on very bad terms with it. Don ' t despair! When the project is complete, the bird will love you again for your humane efforts. The construction of the bird house is really quite simple, but a carpenter or medium-sized boy will make the best job of it. When the last nail is in place and the last finger bandaged, the job of painting the house, though light, is not one to rush into thoughtlessly. It is safer in the long run to consult the chief female member of the family on the subject, to be doubly sure that it will not clash with the zinnias or detract from the new window boxes. When, however, the shiny, new pinnacle of architectural achievement is swinging gaily in its tree, or perched jauntily atop its pole, one can relax and enjoy the warm satisfaction which comes from successful hard labour. In fact, the only thing left to do, is to entice your bird friends to live in their new home. Carol Claric, Science VI, Ross House. THE SNOWFALL At first the air was bleak and bare, With darkness all around. But soon some silvery snow flakes Came falling to the ground. Slowly they whirled in the cool crisp air, Softly forming a covering thin. Like tiny doilies of fragile lace Falling in everlasting spin. Faster and faster they flew through the sky. Making drifts that were deep and white. Till the ground was obscured by a blanket of snow. ' Twas indeed an awesome sight. The morning bright saw a world that was new. Encrusted with snow were the trees. Gone was the fury of the previous night. As flakes blew gently in the breeze. Bette Shannon, Form IIIb, Gumm ing House.

THE BEST HOUR OF THE DAY THE BEST HOUR of the day is the first hour in the morning. You wake up gradually, slowly coming to your senses. You lie curled up in your bed, warm and comfortable. The clock in the hall strikes; you turn on your back and gaze up at the ceiling, counting. There is suspense in that moment. Is it eight? If so, you know, your mind disliking the idea, that you will have to jump out of bed, wash, dress, gather your books, have a hasty breakfast and run for the bus. On the other hand, if it is seven, you have nearly an hour for lying in bed and dreaming. Unless of course there is unfinished homework to contend with. You dismiss that idea hurriedly; your bed is too warm to leave, and anyway you are still really asleep. Having counted and discovered that the clock has struck only seven times, you transfer your gaze from the ceiling to the window. Without moving you can see the dusky grey sky, and the trees show a recent snowfall. How lovely it would be to go skiing and then skate. These wonderful thoughts, however, are interrupted by the horrible thoughts of History and English notes whicli [37] should have been finished long ago. Then you try to think what day it is — well, it was Friday yesterday so it must be Saturday to-day. What are you worrying about? There is no school to-day. You sigh with contentment, turn over, and go back to sleep. Beverley Smith, Form Yb, Ross House. DUNSTABLE DILEMMA DAISY WAS a fine Hereford cow who spent her days sampling the grass in Mrs. Brown ' s field. She never wandered, not even when the postman left the gate open, which he frequently did. But to-day the sun was shining and the world inviting, so Daisy watched the postman out of sight, then walked to the gate, paused, walked through, turned sharp left and headed deliberately up Dunstable Lane. Mrs. Brown happened to be washing eggs in the pantry when, on looking out of the window, she saw that her beloved Daisy had disappeared. In great consternation she hurried to the gate, only to see a familiar bovine tail swinging in the distance. With visions of losing her Daisy for ever, she picked up her skirts, and, running to Farmer Grundy ' s, arrived puffing and panting in his back yard. " Grundy, " she cried, " Daisy has got out and is heading for Overblow cross- roads! " Grundy immediately dropped a huge bowl of pig swill with a mighty crash. " Ay, Mrs. Brown, you must have sinned badly for the Lord to do a thing like that, " he shook his head dubiously. " What ' s the matter, what ' s the matter? " shrieked a voice from the kitchen where Grandma Grundy, accordingly as Mrs. Brown ' s wailing became louder, was rocking herself more and more frantically by the fire. " Now, Mother, no need to upset yourself, it is only that Mrs. Brown ' s cow has escaped and is heading up Dunstable road, " her son said soothingly. " Mother! Where are you going? You know what the doctor said . . . " " Doctor ! ' Twill be Daisy needs a doctor if we don ' t stop her from mortally wounding herself, " the old woman snapped. " Where ' s my umbrella? " she mut- tered. Suddenly she bounced into the corner, " Here we are! Nay, Willy, Cow ' ll be in the next village if you don ' t move your legs quicker than that! " " But Mother . . . , " his words echoed meaninglessly. Grandma Grundy was half way to Dunstable Lane. Farmer Dunn was strolling down the road when two dishevelled figures hurried up to him, a third, carrying a large black umbrella not far behind. " Have you seen a cow bolting up here? " asked Farmer Grundy, " the devil ' s possessed Mrs. Brown ' s Daisy and she is on the warpath — a dangerous animal. " Farmer Dunn ' s deer stalker dropped over his ears and shot back again. " Heaven hav e mercy on us! Why, a cow like that might do anything. I ' ll get the boys. ' Arry, Dick, " he bellowed over the wall, " come and help catch Mrs. Brown ' s cow, it has escaped and is charging up the lane like a mad elephant! " His sons rushed out of the field, followed by two black mongrels. [38] Mrs. Brown, red in the face, made a brilUant suggestion: " Perhaps Silas will know what to do, " she said. Silas Foot had once been a recruit in the Home Guard and was therefore considered the fount of all knowledge. The strange little gathering hurried to his cottage and told him their dilemma. Silas thought, then: " Strikes me, if we was to go round Strawberry Hill we would come to the other side of Overblow cross-roads, and then we could meet the animal, instead of chasing after it. " " Ay, ay that ' s right. Fine bit o ' thinking that, Silas, " they cried, and in a body rushed to Strawberry Hill. Up they went, encouragingly cheering each other on, Mrs. Brown and Harry in the lead, the others doing their best to keep up with them. " That ' s my girl. Grandma, " cried Farmer Dunn, " up we come. " He held out a helping hand, but it was immediately dealt a blow with an indignant umbrella. Meanwhile Daisy was quietly plodding up Dunstable Lane, a straw hanging out of her mouth and a foolish expression on her face. Freedom was delicious: and she never felt quite so happy in her life. But suddenly the peace was broken, and for ever. Turning a corner she arrived at the cross-roads and immediately an unearthly clamour shattered the silence. Dogs yelped and growled, and seven human beings stamped, cheered, shouted and whistled, frantically waving arms, hats and sticks in the air. Daisy had never been so terrified in all her life. She turned and galloped back up Dunstable Lane like the wind. " After her! " shieked the mob and flew down the road in a frenzy. Gra- dually the uproar ceased, and with a cloud of dust the pursuers disappeared round the bend — all except one, still trotting behind and valiantly waving a large black umbrella. Penny Farndale, Arts VI, Fairley House. MARCH THE EIGHTH, 1956 MARCH THE EIGHTH, 1956, is a day which will be long remembered by most people, especially those who braved the early morning sleet and weather conditions. It was the worst morning of the winter. My parents tried to persuade me to stay at home, but I thought of the Grand March practice and the long history notes which we would have, and I was determined to get to school somehow. Once there, everyone (who was present) had a different story concerning her adventures. Mine certainly was unique — I arrived in the baggage-car of the trans-continental! This is how it all started. For half an hour Sandra Keymer and I waited — and froze — on The Boulevard for a " 66 " bus. When it became apparent that there were no buses running, we walked back to my house and warmed up. On the way, we met Margaret Clegg who was desperate: she had to read the lesson at Prayers! After Sandra and I had warmed up sufficiently, we scaled snow drifts and proceeded to wait for the Sherbrooke bus. Margaret was nowhere to be seen. We soon gave this up and walked down to Westmount Station, trying hopefully to avoid skidding cars. There, we were told to " follow the crowd " and at last boarded a train. To our utter amazement, we found ourselves in the baggage-car and flopped down on the nearest crates in laughter. We certainly never expected [39] to end up there. After disembarking at Windsor Station we discovered that we had been on the train which had come all the way from Vancouver. Eventually we entered Traf — exhausted, and a sorry sight. for days after, I could think of nothing but my ride in the baggage-car, and although it was not very comfortable or airy, at least it is one experience which I shall remember for a long, long time! Laureen Hicks, Form IVb, Fairley House. THE GOOD SALESMAN ONE WINTER an elderly relative and I were staying at the Hotel des Palms, Taormina, Sicily. The guests were mostly British and Americans. One lovely warm sunny day late in January, a number of us were having a picnic limch on a hillside, when a Sicilian peasant woman, with a kerchief tied over her hair, came to us with a glass jug of clear red wine (a little deeper than the ' vin rose ' of France) and one thick glass like a mug. She smiled and bowed very modestly, and wordlessly offered Colonel Dubuisson a glass of her wine. He thanked her and drank, and was most enthusiastic. So she went right round the circle giving each of us picnickers a drink of her clear red wine from the same glass. Everyone found it delicious, perhaps because sandwiches are very dry — perhaps because the climb, the sun and the air gave everyone a hearty appetite — perhaps it really was excellent. Soon Miss Flanagan became poetic about liquid rubies and the Colonel told her she had better not drink any more. Each one contributed a little " Trink-geld " (literally) and the peasant lady smiled her madonna smile and melted away somewhere across an almond terrace. About a week later I was in a grocery shop in the village. The owner was a goodlooking young Sicilian who just naturally made himself very agreeable and helpful to tourists. I was looking at the wine bottles on shelves that went up to the ceiling. I told the young vendor about the peasant lady and the lovely wine. He flung his arms around my neck and cried, " She was my mother. Here is the very same wine. We always make it ourselves, " and he reached down a bottle from the shelf. I was thrilled, paid, and hurried back to my friend. We had our waiter open it at dinner and with the gastric juices well stimulated in anticipation, eagerly drank of it. But oh misery! It was horrible — more like ink than the wine of the hillside. Then I realized what a good salesman was that young Sicilian. Isabella Monahan, Arts VI, Ross House. BARBADOS IT IS A WARM January morning in Barbados. Almost directly overhead the sun is shining brightly, and a few clouds can be seen in the azure blue sky. Perched on the railing of my gallery, chirping merrily, are two grey sparrows, which, compared to the sparrows found in Canada, are very tiny, and very bold. Below the verandah is the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Beyond the coral reef the water is deep blue, but it is covered with white caps as it breaks in waves over the reef. Nearer the shore the water is clear green, and its waves break gently on the sandy beaches. It is so clear, that I can often see the schools of fish as they pass, even though I am on my gallery. Farther out, in the dark [40] blue water, are flying fish, which the natives of Barbados catch from their small sail boats. Here comes a fishing boat now with two men in it. One of them is standing in the stern and poling, because they are too close to the shore to receive a breeze strong enough to propel them. Several people are swimming in the refreshing water. Some are searching for sea eggs on the reef, while others are spear fishing beyond it. In the evening the sun nears the horizon, and the day draws to a close. The waves lap against the shore gently and rhythmically. Further out, they break on the reef with a muffled crash. In the sky quite a few clouds have gathered near the sun. There is one cloud that looks something like an elephant, a big grey one, with its baby hanging onto its tail. Another seems to be the face of an ugly giant, but now it has changed. Parts of it have moved ahead and it has become just an ordinary cloud. It has lost the magic it once had, as it crossed the face of the sun. A sudden breath of wind shakes the palm tree by the water, and it whispers gently in protest, as a few fronds drop quietly onto the shore, where they are carried away by a wave. Here also there is a wonderful sense of peace and quiet. A dog barks in the distance, and the voice of a native selling fish rings out near at hand, and then fades away. The sun has set, and it is becoming dark very quickly. Wendy Laws, Form IIIa, Fairley House. SPRING USUALLY THE first sign of spring occurs on a bright sunny morning, late in March, when one is awakened by the chirping of a robin or the endless cawing of a crow. This thought of spring arriving gladdens the heart, making one jump out of bed to investigate. But what makes spring the wonderful season that it is? Spring is the time of year when the cheery robins return from the south; when the sun becomes brighter and much stronger; when the snow turns into slush, exposing the yellow grass; when the dark, bare trees begin to show bright green buds; when the tiny streams begin to trickle over the rocks still covered with ice; when the daffodils, tulips and cherry blossoms burst forth in their beautiful colours ; when the grass turns green again ; when the gardeners begin to plant their summer flowers; when the cattle are once again free to roam the hillside, munching the new green grass. Spring is the time of year when people discard their overshoes and heavy overcoats; when the sand on the streets becomes dry, and is emptied from shoes every evening; when the new Easter bonnets and " spring " suits are displayed; when children bring out on the streets their bicycles and kiddie cars which have been stored in the basement all winter; when the winter snow shovels are replaced by the spades and garden rakes; when houses receive the spring coat of paint; when the winter windows are replaced by screens. All of this is spring: a season enjoyed by everyone, everywhere. Elizabeth Corken, Arts VI, Barclay House.

MA VISITE A LA PLANETE MARS APRES AVOIR quitte ma fusee sur la planete Mars, j ' ai fait une promenade pour examiner cet endroit. C ' es t curieux, et j ' ai eu peur quand j ' ai rencontre ces petits hommes, les Martiens, qui m ' ont regardee silencieusement. Apres quelque temps, trois Martiens sont arrives a quelques pas de moi, m ' ont exami- nee, puis m ' ont saisie et m ' ont trainee devant leur general, qui etait assis avec ses Martiens dans une grande salle noire et mysterieuse. Ses Martiens ont pointe leur revolvers. " Comment etes-vous venue ici? " m ' a demandee leur general d ' vme voix forte. J ' ai tremble de peur. La voix terrible a recommence, mais j ' ai garde le silence. Alors il m ' a regardee fixement pendant quelques minutes; il a dit a ses Martiens des paroles etranges. Sur un signe de leur chef, deux Martiens ont saisi mes bras, m ' ont tiree au bord de la planete Mars, et m ' ont jetee par-dessus. Je suis tombee . . . et tombee . . . et tombee ... ; et je ne me suis pas arretee. A cet instant j ' ai bondi — dans mon lit. C ' etait un reve, un mauvais reve. Heureusement !

Mes souvenirs ne sont pas nombreux, mais des apergus occasionnels de mes experiences me reviennent a I ' esprit. Je me souviens de trois petites filles qui portaient les memes vetements que moi — Lucile, Emilie et Kathleen. Mon professeur etait Mile. Hatfield et pendant deux annees je vivais dans la peur continuelle de son tablier. Apres ma premiere journee a " Traf " , je suis allee tres serieusement au bureau de Mile. Foster. Je lui serrai la main et je lui dis, " Merci beaucoup de cette parfaite journee. Je reviendrai demain. Merci. " Au commencement de ma quatrieme annee j ' etais tres dissipee. Pour cette raison le professeur m ' a placee devant la classe et juste a ce moment la direc- trice entra. EUe est allee dire quelques mots a Mile. Walton et a chaque instant toutes les deux me regardaient. Je n ' avais jamais ete aussi petrifiee de toute ma vie. Je pensais qu ' elle allait m ' expulser ou quelque chose comme qa. Enfin Mile. Foster quitta la salle de classe et Mile. Walton m ' a dit, " S ' il vous plait, restez ici apres I ' ecole a une heure. " Je mourais presque. Midi . . . et demi . . . une heure. Quand je suis allee vers le professeur, elle m ' a dit, " Comment aimeriez-vous aller dans la classe de cinquieme? " J ' etais si soulagee que je pleurais. Dans ma derniere annee a I ' ecole je me trouve tres occupee, mais, en tout cas, je ne puis pas oublier de remercier tons ceux qui m ' ont aidee dans mes dix annees a la plus merveilleuse des ecoles — TRAFALGAR. Sandra Keymer, Arts VI, Gumming House. UN SOIR D ' ETE: LA LUNE JE MONTE a ma place dans le ciel ce soir. C ' est au-dessus d ' un groupe de chalets situe au bord d ' un lac. Ce lac est au milieu d ' une foret pleine de grands arbres superbes. Cette foret est epaisse et silencieuse. La brume descend doucement sur tout. Le monde est tranquille. Mais il y a de la musique. Elle vient des maisons. Je me mets a regarder cette bourgade. D ' une des petites maisons s ' approche de moi une faible lueur. Elle vient d ' une fenetre du premier etage. Un peu plus haut et je pourrais voir dedans, un peu plus — Ah! C ' est une mere qui chante a son petit. Elle chante au-dessus du berceau la ronde: " Petit enfant, dej a la brume Autour de la maison s ' etend. II faut dormir quand vient la lune, Petit enfant, petit enfant. II faut dormir quand vient la lune. Petit enfant, petit enfant. " Naomi J. A. Curry, Arts VI, Barclay House. [44] TENDRESSE MATERNELLE JE N ' OUBLIERAI jamais Texemple de tendresse maternelle dont j ' etais le temoin lors de mon sejour dans un petit village Suisse. La nuit tombait lentement et la lune eblouissante apparaissait derriere la montagne. Du sentier familier aux montagnards surgit une forme singuliere, qui se trainait et boitait. Nous avons eu de la peine a la distinguer dans I ' obscurite du sous-bois. Enfin la forme s ' est approcliee clopin-clopant et nous avons reconnu en cette forme une mere gazelle portant entre ses dents son bebe faon. Nous nous sommes approches et elle, en gemissant, posa son petit demi-mort devant nos pieds et s ' evanouit. Alors, nous avons transporte nos fardeaux a I ' etable de la propriete. Apres les avoir soignes, la mere a regagne ses forces et regardait attentivement son petit. Nous avons soigne ses blessures et lui avons donne du lait a boire. Toute cette nuit la mere n ' a rien mange, et bien qu ' elle fut epuisee de fatigue elle n ' a pas dormi une seconde. Elle veillait pres de son enfant, le lechant avec tendresse, comme si elle voulait le consoler de ses souffrances. Cinq jours se sont ecoules pendant lesquels la mere gazelle couvait son petit. Le sixieme jour le petit a donne signe de guerison. II etait de nouveau debout sur ses pattes. Nous avons laisse la porte de I ' etable ouverte et plus tard dans I ' apres-midi la mere a conduit son petit vers les bois. Mais avant de se perdre dans le sentier, elle s ' approcha de nous, nous lecha les mains en signe de gratitude, et son regard etait plus expressif que mille remerciements des etres humains. Cette experience de tendresse maternelle restera pour toujours gravee dans ma memoire. Catherine Hadjipateras, Form IVb, Barclay House. MES FAVORIS DOMESTIQUES Mes favoris, je les adore, Je les aime de tout mon coeur. Mon oiseau jaune chante doucement, II a toujours des airs charmants ; II parle bien et pousse un cri, " Je suis gentil, je suis joli. " Mon chien de race, si beau et blond, Aboie gaiment apres tout le monde. Tous les matins il nous eveille, Bondit en haut et se leche I ' oreille. Mon poisson rouge heureusement jette Des etincelles comme faisant fete. II s ' elance vif, se donne des airs, Et veut bien toujours nous plaire. Je les adore, mes favoris, Qu ' ils sont gentils, mes petits amis! Elaine Speirs, Form IIIb, Cumming House. [45] WARUM ICH DEUTSCH LERNE ALS ICH in die vierte Klasse kam und zwischen den drei uns gegebenen Hauptfaechern waehlten, entschied ich mich die deutsche Sprache zu lernen. Seit jener Zeit haben mich viele Leute gefragt warum ich eine andere Sprache waehlte. Nun, ich waehhe Deutsch um mein Wissen der Sprache zu verbreiten und auch um der KuUur willen. Viele wundervolle Buecher sind im Deutschen geschrieben, und eines Tages hoffe ich sie lesen und verstehen zu koennen. Ich moechte gern reisen und Deutsch wird sehr nuetzUch sein. Dann auch in der Zukunft, wer weiss, vielleicht werde ich sie brauchen fuer die Karriere die ich beduerfe. Diese zwei Jahre seitdem ich Deutsch gelernt babe, haben mir wirkUch viel Vergnuegen gemacht weil ich zu meinen Ver- wandten schreiben kann. Ich hoffe meine Studien der deutschen Sprache weiterzufuehren, wenn ich die Universitaet besuche, und ich bin sicher dass es betraechtHch in meinen Streben gegen meine Ersucht helfen wird. Barbara Armbruster, Form Vb, Barclay House. WARUM ICH NACH DEUTSCHLAND GEHEN MOECHTE ALS ICH noch klein war, erzaehlte mir meine Mutter wunderschoene Geschichten und Maerchen aus Deutschland. Ich liebte die Geschichte des Rattenfaengers von Hammeln und die alte Sage des Lorelei-Felsen am Rhein, auf dessen Gipfel die wunderschoene Jungfrau (auch Lorelei genannt) sitzl, und mit ihrem Gesang die Schiffer anlockt und in den sicheren Tod treibt. Meine Mutter erzaehlte mir auch von ihrer Studentenzeit in Muenchen, und mein Vater erzaehlte mir Geschichten aus seiner Jugend. Muenchen moechte ich gerne mit meinen Eltem zusammen sehen; mit meinem Vater in das alte und weltbekannte Hofbraeuhaus gehen, und auch zu dem Haus in welchem er geboren wurde. Mit meiner Mutter moechte ich die Gaerten und Museen besuchen, und die alten Schloesser in und um Muenchen. Ich moechte die mehr als tausend Jahre alte " Feste Coburg " sehen, worin Prinz Albert, der Gemahl der Koenigin Victoria, geboren wurde. Deutschland ist ein Land mit grosser historischer Vergangenheit, alten Staedten, malerischen Doerfern, uralten, herrlichen Burgen, und wunder- schoenen Fluessen und Seeen. Doch haptsaechlich moechte ich Deutschland sehen, weil es das Land meiner Ahnen ist. Frances Kornpointer, Form Vb, Fairley House. GUATEMALA GUATEMALA, per la ubicacion tropical y relieve montanoso, goza de gran variedad de clima, desde el mas frio, templado y caliente, y per eso ha recibido [46] el sobre-nombre de " Guatemala, tierra de la eterna primavera " . Guatemala es su ciudad capital, y esta rodeada de veinte y dos departamentos. Su principal produccion es el cafe de mucha fama; tambien produce cacao, bananas, tabaco, etc. Los bellos pueblecitos son enriquecidos por los trajes regiona- les, la musica folklorica, la marimba de nuestros indios que llaman la curiosidad de los turistas. Chichicastenango es muy visitado por los turistas por sus pintorescos valles, por las rosas e insencio, por sus trajes bordados habilmente de bellos colores. En Chichicastenango hay varios hoteles donde la servidumbre es indigena y habla muy bien el ingles. Guatemala posee immensons volcanes; hay uno, por ejemplo, de agua famosa en la historia por su erupcion, en la cual quedo en ruinas, lo que hoy dia es la Antigua; en esa tremenda erupcion padecio el Gran Conquistador Don Pedro de Alvarado y su esposa, Doha Beatriz de la Cueva. Hay tambien el bello rio dulce con sus paisajes inigualables, el romantico lago de Atithan, con sus aguas cristalinas, donde la luna, con su mirada coqueta, se refleja en las noches de esplendor. El lago de Atithan es uno de los paseos favoritos para pasar los fines de semanas por sus bellas playas, para admirar la caida del sol. Al alrededor del lago se han construido muchos chalets que lo ayudan a embel- lecerlo. El hermoso lago esta vigilado por imponentes volcanes y rodeado de doce pueblecitos con los nombres de los doce apostoles. La naturaleza ha dotado tambien a Guatemala con sus fuentes medicinales, en las cuales se han curado muchas enfermedades, tales como el reumatismo. La fuente de las aguas amargas es una de las principales. Guatemala posee todas sus carreteras asfalteadas. Al alrededor de las carre- teras se admiran las plantaciones de cafe donde nos llega el exquisito aroma. Guatemala extiende fraternalmente los brazos al mundo siempre con el tema: Dios, Patria, Libertad. Maria Alarcon, Science VI, Fairley House. LA REPUBLICA DOMINICANA LA REPUBLICA DOMINICANA es una republica que pertenece a las Antillas Mayores. Es la antigua parte espafiola de la isla de Santo Domingo. La Republica Dominicana occupa la parte mas grande de la isla donde Haiti es la parte del oeste. Santo Domingo es el establecimiento mas viejo de origen europeo en el mundo nuevo y fue descubierto por Colon en 1496 cuando el la llamo " La Hispaniola. " Ciudad Trujillo es la capital y el puerto de mar mas importante de la Repu- blica Dominicana y esta situada en la costa sur de la isla. Ciudad Trujillo es considerada el ejemplo mas perfecto de una ciudad espafiola, encerrada de paredes, muros antiguos, y travesada de calles derechas y estrechas. Su vieja catedral fecha de 1512 y encierra la tumba de Colon. Sandra Kovacs Arts VI, Barclay House. [47] THE BABY MONKEY OF THE JUNGLE (With apologies to Hiawatha! ) Then the Uttle baby monkey Learned the secrets of the jungle : How to hang and swing from branches, Crack the nuts and eat bananas; How to know the smell of danger, Where to hide, and when to do so ; When the pool was safe for drinking. When ' twas wiser to go thirsty. Soon he spied a mighty eagle Circling in the sky above him. Heard the chatter, as his mother Warned him of approaching danger, Hid within the nearest palm-tree Till his fear once more was conquered! Ingrid Lynge, Upper I, Age 10. MY SISTER With big blue eyes and golden hair She stands upon the grass, A dainty little dresden doll, A precious little lass. I would not change her little toe. Nor one wee strand of hair. For all the money in this wide world Not to be a millionaire. Barbara Schwartz, Upper H, Cumming House. THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A DOG I AM A DOG with an important name. It is Disraeli. The family call me Dizzy for short. I was born in the country one hot summer. I think it was 1954. I have a mistress named Claire. She is a little girl. I am not allowed on the beds and it is my favourite place for a nap. I think it is a pity! [48] Claire gives me my dinner at two o ' clock p.m. I usually finish it in two and a half minutes. I am a little pig! They bought a big black box (TV?) which the family sit in front of and watch instead of patting me. One day, I put my paws on the box to see what I could see. I saw a pretty lady so I kissed her. I wonder why the family laughed ? Here is a list of the things I own: brush, comb, cloth, bowl, chewed basket (I chewed it!), 2 blankets, 1 rubber mouse, 1 rubber bone, 1 rubber ring, 1 bone, 2 coats, some food, 2 towels, a leash and a nail clipper. I hate having my nails clipped! I am a very happy dog. This is the end of my own autobiography. Claire Marshall, Lower I, Age 9 years. THOUGHTS ON A BALANCE BENCH Will I fall or will I goof? I wonder at the door. We ' re marching in, We ' re getting up. What a long way to the floor ! We ' re walking along. I ' m jittery. Sandra, where ' s your hand? Eek, I ' m falling, Sandra, help ! I ' ll fall. Give me your hand. " You ' ve got it, Ronne. " " Where? " I said. " Inside yours. Now use your head! " My brain is whirling, I ' m walking alone. " Don ' t grab, Faye, Mum is watching. " I ' m shaking to the bone. I ' m getting up from lying down, I ' m O.K. But, oh! poor Faye She ' s falling — no- — she saved herself. There ' s clapping now; I ' m safe ! ! Ronne Heming, Upper II, Fairley House. THE LOVELIEST THING I EVER SAW! IT WAS a bright, warm day, and we had almost arrived at Niagara Falls. From where we were, we thought that we could hear the water roaring down the chutes. We got out of the car and we could see the beautiful gardens in front of the Sheraton Brock Hotel. The noise grew louder by the second, since we were approaching the Falls. Hurrah! For the first time I saw Niagara — something I had always wished for! The blue water roared loudly, and it seemed to be simply pouring down the horseshoe-shaped chutes. How wonderful it all was! There were many things to see round about for our few days ' stay, but Niagara Falls itself was the loveliest thing I ever saw! MiREiLLE CouLOURiDES, Upper I, Age 101 2. THE ROBIN FAMILY ONCE UPON A TIME on a sunny spring day, high on a tree. Mother Robin called to her husband, " Father, come quickly, our eggs have hatched! " Father Robin let go of the worm he was tugging at, and flew to the apple tree where the nest he had helped to make was. [49] When he got to the nest, three Uttle beaks were open and waiting for food. " What shall we name them, Mother? " he asked, looking proudly at their children. " Now, let me see. I ' ll call this one at the back Robbie, for Robert. Now you name one, and we ' ll name the last one together! " " All right, I ' ll call this one Ruth. Do you think we could call him Reddy? " " YvLS, but we must feed them! " she said, nodding her wise head. Father Robin wanted to tell everyone in the garden the wonderful news, but with a sigh he began to look for food. All day he was kept busy flying to and from the nest in the apple tree, feeding the little robins. That night when their little mouths were full, he sang his wonderful news to the whole garden. Janet Beattie, Upper II, Gumming House. THE STORY THE BLACKBOARD TOLD ONCE UPON A TIME there was a blackboard that lived in a very nice classroom. One day the teacher was going to write a story on the black- board. Just as she was going to write, the blackboard began to tell the story: Once upon a time there was a wicked witch who always wanted to catch the Fairy Queen, because she cast spells over all the people who wanted to go past the witch ' s house. These spells made it so the people became invisible. One day the Fairy Queen decided to play a joke on the witch, so she went and told the King her plan, and this is what it was. She went and asked the Royal Builder to build an invisible trap that had a door that could only open from the outside so that she would be trapped. It worked, so they lived happily ever after. Heather Marshall, Preparatory, Age 6 years. SNOW Slowly, silently, to and fro, Shining with brightness comes the snow. Whirling and whirling round and round. Until it finally reaches the ground ; Then it melts on houses and trees, Just like a band of bumble bees. Karen Molyneux, Upper II, Ross House. [50] THE CABIN Every week-end we all go To our cabin in the snow. Down the hills, ere day is done, We ski and slide and have such fun. White foam floats upon the river With a gentle little quiver. Snow falls quietly in the night. And when we wake, the whole world ' s white. When the cabin ' s snug and warm. Then we ' re safe from any storm. If the wind begins to blow. How we welcome the fire ' s glow ! When it ' s time for us to go. We leave our cabin in the snow. Reluctantly we wend our way To town, until another day. Barbara Aylett, Upper I, Age 11. SPRING The sun rose in the morning. It is a beautiful day. The birds are happily singing, The snow has gone away. Karen Daniels, Preparatory, Age 6 years. SKIING When you get on your skis And you fly down a hill. Watch out there, please, Or you might have a spill. Hang onto the tow And away you ' ll go. The easiest part you know Is standing on top Looking over the snow. Katharine Kingston, Upper II, Gumming House. THE BLIZZARD The snow is whirling, turning, flying Into faces, into eyes. The wind is blowing, fiercely blowing. With its low and mournful cries. RoNNE Heming, Upper II, Fairley House. [51] LUCY Lucy is a leopard. She ' s very, very coy. She would not hurt a single soul Because she ' s but a toy. Lucy ' s fur is spotted, Her eyes are emerald green. She came to here from Africa, A true-born jungle queen. Caroline Greeves, Lower I, Age 10. MY FIRST DAY AT TRAP ALL DURING the summer holidays I was thinking and worrying about my first day at Traf. What would it be like? Would I like the teachers and girls, and would they like me? Finally the day came. I walked through the door towards the teacher on duty and she told me to go up those stairs. Between the hammering of the men finishing the new school and the hammering of my heart at the idea of starting, I thought I would never find my way up those stairs! But up I went. The next hurdle was the examination I had heard I had to write. The fact had been giving me no little concern. At last I found out what I had to do, writing a composition was one of the things. You can guess from reading this just how I felt. Well, everything turned out fine, and I have made many new friends. Sandra Williams, Upper II, Fairley House. SPRING Spring is my favourite season. The flowers are growing. The birds are singing. And my heart is happy Just for that reason. Renee Morganti, Preparatory, Age 7 years. The Preparatories acted a play, " The Toys ' Picnic " at the end of the Christmas term, under the direction of Miss Thomas, and sang carols which Dr. Herbert had taught them.

It was a Sunday afternoon, and all the boarders were downstairs having tea with the Principal. I, however, preferred to stay upstairs. First I deposited a large pile of comics on the top shelf of my cupboard. I was promptly told by the matron, who came to see how I was getting along, that one of the boarders must have put her junk in my clean cupboard. I managed to whisper that the comics belonged to me, and just then the silence turned to an uproar of people talking and running up the stairs. I also heard expressions such as, " I wonder what the new girl is like? " Girls came into my cubicle to meet and talk to me. They were very nice, and soon I began to feel more at home. This feeling lasted only until supper and prayers were over. Supper was delicious, and it was someone ' s birthday so we also had some very good cake. After supper, we all went into the drawing-room with the Head- mistress. Everyone read a verse out of the Bible, and then we all said the Lord ' s prayer together. I was just beginning really to have fun with the girls, when, suddenly, someone who looked like a fierce policewoman — presumably a teacher — asked me when I had had my last bath. This shocked me, and I couldn ' t think of an answer, so I was rushed up to the bathroom and told to have a bath " imme- diately! " The teacher did not forget to add that I wasn ' t allowed to lock the door. After my bath I decided to brush my teeth, but unfortunately I couldn ' t find my toothpaste. One of the girls was just going to lend me some, when the same teacher announced that I ' d have to use soap and water, as my mother was very fussy about what kind of toothpaste I used. This was the last straw, and I went to bed very confused and bewildered. All this happened five years ago, and when I think back it is amusing and not confusing any more. Every year since then, on the first day, new girls — especially juniors — have gone through a similar routine, and I have watched, and been able to sympathize with them, remembering my first day. Sandra Kovacs, Pink Room. WE ' RE HAVING A PARTY THE SCHOOL is bustling with excitement, for we boarders have finally been granted permission to have another party. After four months of waiting, the time has almost arrived. Few day girls realize what we go through in prepara- tion for this grand occasion. Phone calls must be made to invite our male friends, with only a few minutes every night for this task. We are constantly worried about the fact that there will not be enough boys — but then we find out that we have five or ten too many. We pass this off lightly, however, saying " the more the merrier " . Day girls who " didn ' t want to go " to the last party have a sudden desire to go to this one after they have heard of all the fun everybody had last time. Everybody rushes around asking " May I borrow a sweater? " " Are you wearing your pearls? " " I get the first bath, " etc [55] 1. Nuts. 2. Happy Holidays. 3. Your three minutes are up. 4.

They stand on a ladder, which is on a chair, which in turn is on a small wavering table, just trying to tack up some balloons. Meanwhile, the enter- tainment and refreshment committees are busily gathering up records and making sandwiches In the last precious hour, girls are seen dashing madly about the dorm, shouting, borrowing, lending, dressing, applying the finishing touches, and brushing their lovely locks, just back from the hairdresser ' s. Zero hour has finally arrived. Boys appear at all the entrances, and as we waltz down the stairs to greet them, we know the evening will be a success. KiNA Reusch, Green Room. BOARDING We hear the bell ring at the first crack of dawn ; We crawl out of bed, put our uniforms on. Then breakfast together till quarter to eight ; Next cubicles cleaned, or sad is our fate. Soon we ' re off for a " walk " in the fresh morning air, But " run " is the word since we ' ve no time to spare. When at last we return and enter our form. It ' s quite a relief to be in where it ' s warm. We struggle through school work and many a test. Then after dinner it ' s time for our rest ; We then have the choice of a walk or a skate. And into the study, where homework ' s our date. Supper at six, then to study again ; The bell for " lights out " is sounded at ten. We go through the same old routine every day. This is the life of a boarder so gay. Evangeline Lentgis and Barbara Barker, Upper Dorm. SIMPLE THINGS I hope that I shall always see How lovely simple things can be : The every day things, friendly bread. The kindly roof above my head. The singing beauty of a fire. The thrilling line of soaring spire. The puppy rolling on the lawn, A bird ' s song at the crack of dawn. And all the many happy things. That lift our hearts as though on wings. I hope that I shall always see How lovely simple things can be. Jane Torrey, Form IVb, Barclay House. [57] TRAFALGAR ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 1955-56 Dr. Foster Miss Box M. G.

The Second Team has also played steadily, but at the end of some very close games Weston won the Second Team Cup. Congratulations! Besides our league games, we played Westmount Senior and Westmount Junior High. We enjoyed the games, and hope to play these teams again next year.

Excitement was in the air as we sat in the classroom, nervously biting our finger nails. The event we had worked for so long had arrived at last. We had seen the rehearsal two days before, and now, closing our eyes, we could picture the gym: the expectant audience, and then the sudden hush as the doors swung open; the pianist beginning to play a lively air, and the folk dancers, in their colourful skirts and shorts, whirling in. The music drifted faintly down from the gym, but stopped all too soon. After that gay per- formance there would be games by Lower I. We listened intently — apparently the audience was entering into the spirit of the games, for we could hear them cheering the teams on to victory. Suddenly there was a knock on the door and a prefect peered in and beckoned us. Silently we lined up and tiptoed up the stairs to the Gym. Pre- paratory were tumbling and dancing, and doing it very well too. We knew it was our turn next. Then the doors opened, they came out — we marched into the room — lights seemed to beat down upon us as we drilled. Then it was all over — we were back in the classroom. Those who were in vaulting hurried out again, and those in rope climbing put on their black stockings, for these were the next two items on the program. They had been excellent on Tuesday and doubtless would be again today. Vaulting was soon over and finally the rope climbers returned, telling us that the exercises on benches by Upper I and Form II were going off very well indeed. We tried to remember what came next. Of course! The Fifth Form march. We could picture these girls, dressed alternately in blue and white, marching smartly around the Gym with great precision. Next, the Sixth Form, in turquoise and white, performed a picturesque drill. This with its catchy tunes was one of the highlights of the Dem. Next was the High Balance, ably done by Upper II. This was very good too, especially the part where four girls lay down on the benches and did an exercise. After doing so well in the rehear- sal, we knew that they would play their parts to perfection, executing the most difficult feats of balance and agility. Then came the tumblers who went through their stunts with the greatest of ease, and at the end performed a picturesque tableau. While the Third Form girls were skipping, the rest of the school lined up in the corridor for the Grand March. Once we were assembled in the Gym, G Badges and Stars were awarded to girls who had excelled in gymnastics, and Miss Box was presented with a bouquet and a gift. Having sung " God Save The Queen " we marched out, ending a wonderful evening. We wish to congratulate Miss Box, who so ably taught and directed us, and Mrs. Thomas for her fine accompaniment on the piano. Form.

SKATING AND SKIING This year we have been very fortunate in having skating and skiing lessons given by two of our Old Girls. Mrs. Rhoda Wurtele Eaves was in charge of the skiing, and Daphne Armstrong taught skating. [64] GYMNASTIC COMPETITION The Senior Gymnastic Shield was won by Science VI. The Junior Gymnastic Shield was won by IIIA and IIIB. The shield for the best officer was won by Margaret Grace Morton and Judy Irwin. SKI MEET This year the Ski Meet, sponsored by the Penguin Ski Club, was held at Mt. Chevreuil. In spite of the bad weather, the Senior Team came second with Westmount winning the Shield.

On our Senior Team were Faye Pitt, Susan Kilburn, Janet Holland, Isabella Monahan, Judy Irwin and Jane Brow.

Congratulations to Faye Pitt who placed second in the combined, and to Sue Kilburn who placed eighth. The Junior and Senior Shields were won by Westmount. TENNIS The matches were played on the Trafalgar courts on Thursday, October 6. The result was based on games, and we lost the Cup to Miss Edgar ' s by two!

Millar (Elizabeth Anne Kendall) 1st Vice-President Mrs. J. V. Emory (Wilma Howard) 2nd Vice-President Margaret Dodds 3rd Vice-President Mrs. Maurice Prud ' homme (Renee Bissonnette) Recording Secretary Pamela Bolton Corr esponding Secretary Daphne Armstrong Treasurer Mrs. J. M. G. Loomis (Elizabeth Sharp) 6th Form Representatives Morven McIlquham, Judy McDougall PRESIDENT ' S REPORT OWING TO THE necessary Building Fund Campaign, this year of 1955-1956 has been a momentous one for Trafalgar School and for the Old Girls ' Association. Under the capable and untiring hands of Mrs. J. A. D. Falkner our ties with the School have been even more firmly established, for our Asso- ciation rose to the occasion magnificently and passed its objective of $50,000. Our heartfelt thanks to all those who gave so generously of their time and money. As reported in notices sent to all members, our major disappointment was that official Board Representation did not come through this year. As we consider this of prime importance, we have offered to pay the necessary monies from our General Fund, and have been assured of our objective. The filing system set up for the Campaign has added many more new names to our files; our paid-up membership is over 300. In the Fall we held a General Meeting at the School, which was well attended. Dr. Foster kindly opened the new addition to all for a preview inspection. Upon the request of Dr. Foster the Executive has organized Ballet, Skiing and Skating lessons, and we have been most fortunate in securing the services of three " Old Girls " to instruct the pupils: Helen Holbrook for Ballet, Mrs. A. K. L. Eaves (Rhoda Wurtele) for Skiing, and Daphne Armstrong for Skating. The Graduation Dance for the Sixth Form proved to be an outstanding success both socially and financially. Mrs. J. V. Emory, her assistants and the graduates are to be commended, for the dance was produced without any monetary assistance from our Association. Our thanks to the T. Eaton Co., Limited, for their valuable assistance. This is another Scholarship Year and, in order to increase the Fund and at the same time give pleasure to our Members, a Fashion Show was held in March at the School, put on by Henry Morgan Co., Limited. Mrs. Maurice Prud ' homme and her assistants are to be especially thanked for making this a success. I would like personally to thank all Members of the Old Girls Association and friends for having given us their help and support during this past busy year. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish the Vlth Form the best of luck and welcome them all as future Members of T. O. G. A. Elizabeth Anne Millar.
