M. LAVEETY, Grads. Page Six CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 EDITORIAL. If, in the days to come, when our happy school days live only as memories, this booklet should bring back to us thoughts of the good times we had at Normal, then every page has more than fulfilled its end. As we review the activities of the past year, we may safely say that it has been most successful. The bulk of the work which rested on the shoulders of the Executives could not have been trusted to two more trustworthy and hard-working bodies than those of the students’ choice. As we come to the end of the term, we are held by two adverse thoughts. Though we are happy to be through and ready to go out to take our place, nevertheless, we feel the pang of sorrow at having to leave a school where we have had so many pleasing remembrances in the course of the past eight months. We have realized that Normal is a place where we work hard, but it is also a place where our ideas and associations tend to broaden out. If we make wise use of our leisure time, we gain benefits of pleasure from it, and wise use of our leisure time is what, in the last resource, fits us for our place in the world. We wish in closing to thank our teachers most heartily for their co-operation and interest in us during our sojourn here. We wish to thank all those who supported The Calgary Normal Light and our other school activities. We give special thanks to the Editorial Staff of the Year Book for their willing response. To any persons who have cause for thinking there was some misunder¬ standing due to our Editorial policy, we apologize. In a lesser degree we would have you think of the lines which Jonathan Swift dedicated to himself: “No single person could resent. Where thousands equally were meant. " We close in wishing all Normalites the greatest measure of health and success in the new field in which they are about to enter. VALEDICTORY (By W. D. STOVEL, Editor-in-Chief, 1925-26) So, for you the end is approaching, an end which is also a beginning. The climactic moment in the metamorphosis is at hand, when the student emerges from the Normal shell, a teacher. You will have changed in eight months from a room-hunter to a school-hunter. As a diamond you will have had many of the rough corners polished by the continual rubbing amongst four hundred other rough diamonds. Ah, how I remember what we enjoyed and suffered from September to June, from the first dance to the final reception, from “Katrina” to “The Prisoner’s Song,” from the first speech in the presidential campaign to the tennis meeting, from registration to announcement of practice teaching results, from unpractised mobs to championship teams, from loan applications to final pay¬ ments, from apparent confusion to order! And verily it was a great year! Yes, and now comes the end, which is also a beginning. Good-bye, my friends. May there be recruited from this class the Petrarchs and the Galileos of an approaching renaissance in matters educational. May you, above all, never forget that you, too, were once school children! CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Seven C OMMENC EM ENT (By DR. E. W. COFFIN, Principal) DR. E. W. COFFIN We are again approaching the season known in college as Commencement. While we may not he entitled to use the term in the college sense, its significance, whatever its origin, is worth think¬ ing about. Why should students “commence” at the end of their term of study? And what do they commence? Is it that they are just beginning to take hold when they might be expected to be letting- go? If so, the spring of the year seems to be an unlikely time for doing so. Or is it that, having been in the educational hothouse, so to speak, all winter, they are now ready to be set out in the open soil to flourish for themselves, in response to the influences of sun¬ shine and shower? Let us suppose that this last is the implication of the term. This means, then, that you are now setting your faces in ia new direc¬ tion, and are about to assume new responsibilities. Imagine a mariner trained in the art of navigation by a course in a nautical college and then setting out on his first voyage. He would be truly an “ancient mariner” by the time he had got on his sea legs and knew the ropes. In a somewhat analogous way is school and college training related, or un-related, to the “job.” How long is it going to take you to get on your pedagogical legs ? How long before you will be able to make any of your theory or even your graded school practice, work in the school or the room you are to have charge of? Don’t be in too much of a hurry. Study the situation before you, and don’t be over-anxious to recognize consciously in every task the principles and problems of text books or lectures. The pupil and the pupil group are your new problems. Keep them in mind, and in due time they will assume meanings even in terms of Psychology and School Management. As you prepare your daily work, think of them as situations to be fitted into your systems of ideas, to be “apper- ceived” as questioners, to be stirred up and quickened, not as recep¬ tacles to be filled. And whatever you forget of all your training course, remember at least three things: First, that your training has only “commenced.” Keep it going by observation and by professional improvement Second, that you are not, because of your training, superior beings, but only one class among many others who are doing their special work. Avoid academic snobbery. Third, that, whether you teach for many months or for few, you are sworn for life to an interest in educa¬ tion as the greatest enterprise of a free people. Whatever your post in after life, think of the school in the light of your past training for it and your approach to it. Thus will you always be a constructive influence, a positive support, and not a grumbling taxpayer, or a fault-finding patron, in the community where you make your home- -N- e Jlormal Htgfjt Late in November, the Executive undertook the forming of a school paper. John Maxwell was chosen as Editor-in-Chief to carry on this work, and under him the following staff was chosen: Business Mgr-Clarence J. Enright News Editor-lj__Elmer Evans Sports Editor--Eric Huskins Literary Editor---Mrs. Edith Ritchie Social Editor-Margaret Shaw Humor Editor__;_Sidney Weller Reporters-L. C. Mogridge, Helen Smith, Dorothy Hawley and Cecil Brandvold Advertising Solicitors-James Blair. Howard Sadler, and Clarence Enright Mr. Janies E. Loucks, of the staff, acted as Consulting Editor. Much credit for the success of the publication is due to Clarence Enright, who, with his business staff, was responsible for making “The Normal Light” successful from the financial viewpoint. In all, four editions appeared, which reported on the different school activities. While the sale of copies was at times under average, on the whole, the students’ response to the paper was very good and so The Normal Light officials were not forced to dig down into the coffers of the Students’ Union to “make ends meet.” The Editorial and Business Staffs of “The Normal Light” take this opportunity to thank all those who supported the school paper.

On this lucky date our team, consisting of Mrs. Ritchie, of 2-E, and “Johnnie” Maxwell, of 1-A, upheld the af¬ firmative against the Canucks, whose team consisted of Mr. Peck and W. Brigden. The subject of debate was, “Resolved, that Military Training in Schools and Colleges of Canada Is Desirable,” Unfor¬ tunately Mr. Brigden was unable to appear at the last moment, so that Mr. Peck decided to do his best for the side unassisted. Our team showed great ability, and gained for us a decisive victory. The judges were, Rev. Rannie, Mr. Speakman and Dr. Gray. Dr. Gray announced the decision and complimented the lone speaker on the negative for his praiseworthy effort. The second debate of the school year was held on February 1, when the Normal School debaters opposed the team picked from the Young Conservative Club. “Resolved, that the veto power of the Senate should be limited to twice to the same bill,” was the subject under discussion. On the affirmative side were Mr. Jack Saucier, who obtained 77 points, and Mr. Rees Taprell, who obtained 75 points, both of the Young Conservatives. On the negative side were Dave Smith and Hugh Lundie, of 2-A. Our team obtained 123 points against 152 points after putting forth a good argument. The verdict was announced by Rev. Mr. Grant in favor of the Young Conservatives. The final debate of the term was held on Friday, March 18 in the Speakers’ Club. The topic under discussion, “Resolved, that for¬ eign troops should be withdrawn from China immediately,” was up¬ held by Mrs. Ritchie, of 2-E, and Mr. Borgal, of 2-A, while on the opposition were Hellen Thompson and Mr. Burke. After a good dis¬ cussion the debate was decided in favor of the affirmative. Thus the third debate ended a successful debating year. The debaters wish to thank Mr. D. A. McKerricher for his whole-hearted assistance during the term. In every case he was only too willing to spend his valuable time coaching the debaters and his experience and skill helped them in no small measure. Reunion—Class 1$, 1924=25 On Wednesday, December 29th, 1926, in the Tapestry Room of the Hudson’s Bay, was held the second annual reunion of Class 1-B, 1924-25. Twenty-two of this class of forty turned up and actually more than 60 per cent, by weight, as “Tubby” Milligan was fully present. President Dick Watson occupied the chair and a large por¬ tion of the adjoining table. Of the Staff were present the Principal, and Messrs. McKerricher, Hutton and O’Hanlon. Beginning the even¬ ing’s celebration was a self-control test, the “spread” being delayed until several impromptu toasts were voted and passed, Messrs. Clark Wallace, George Stanley and Orval Doney relieving the tension by musical numbers. Dinner was at last served and 1-B proved that they were still alive and well. Menues were mutually autographed and extra copies similarly decorated to be sent to absent members. Chief Watson, much to the regret of the tribe, insisted on throwing up the cares of office and Charlie Reeves was elected in his plac e, with the understanding that a similar “pow-wow” be held in 1927, if a sufficient number of the class are out of jail. The evening was finished off by attending “Their First Year” at the Grand theatre, at which performrance the management kindly allowed all members of the class to remain until the close. This class is improving. . One thing, at least, there is no doubt about and that is the class spirit of 1-B, 1925. An eight-months’ course is too short to lead to much permanancy of class organization, but 1-B is showing what can be done when the right kind of bronchos get in the same corral. Evidently 1-B intend to hang together unless their sentences are all commuted together. They will be heard from many times again, at least let us hope so.

In the first campaign to decide the members of the Students’ Executive, two opposing parties were in the field. These were: The Progressive Pedagogues, and The United Progressives, from the ranks of the first and second classes respectively. The results of the polls placed the above members in the various offices of the organization. This Executive, under the able leadership of Robert Reynolds, brought about a great deal of creditable work, such as, rings, pins, crests, busy work cards, Christmas cards, etc., besides the necessary duties for which the offices call. Much commendation is due to this group of officers and also to the staff representative, Mr. Scott, for the busi¬ ness-like methods in which all matters were handled. 2-D—Miss Ethel Haines. 2-E—Mfiss Lena Amundsen. 2-F—Miss Annie Godfrey.

The second term Executive carried on very well the work so ably commenced by the Executive of the first term. The same two parties contested once more and the results were hot and close. Mr. Pickard and Mr. Laverty with their splendid Executive ability, ably guided the younger and less experienced members in their work. So low did the condition of the treasury become that a budget had to be put in operation, which left but two cents in the coffers- It was unanimously voted by the Student Body that this unexpected surplus CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL AR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Eleven Dr. Coffin—(Having class join hands for a psychology experiment): “Too bad this isn’t a mixed class.” Mr. Loucks—(With specs, adjusted on his forehead and toying with his elastic band): “A-hem—at what point did we leave off our work in Bennett ? ” Mr. Scott—(Endeavoring to sink his floating rib with a yard stick): “Now, what particular feature strikes you as characteristic of this particular bird?” Mr. MoKerricher—(Trying to find his vest pockets—to Huskins, who is late): “Huskins, what would you do out in the country, with no one to keep account of you—if you came to school late on a stormy morning and found a poor little fellow frozen to death on the steps?” Sgt-Maj.

The second term saw two new officers included in the Executive. By adding to the Con¬ stitution, the students voted into office the House Committee Presi¬ dent and the Bulletin Manager, both of which offices can be very easily put to work. We may say that these two Executives were all that could be wished for in the way of business machines and the splendid work of the second term Executive brought to a close what we would consider a record year in the annals of The Normal School. --N- Miss Goldie — No. 1, Dishwater; No. 2, Dishwiper No. 3, Table Washer; No. 4, Housekeeper.

Miss Dyde and Miss Fisher, as representatives of the staff, gave an outline of the work attempted by Societies of previous years and many helpful sugges¬ tions to guide initial steps of our procedure. The following capable executive was chosen to carry on the work for the year: President_Miss Katherine Grow Vice-President_Miss ' Margaret Lang Secretary-Treasurer--Winston Cooper Later in the year Miss Grow, finding the work too great a burden along with her other activities, resigned her position as presi¬ dent. For the remainder of the term the position was ably filled by Miss Lang. Mr. Loucks selected several plays, parts of which were read by the students at the next meeting. It was decided that a play en¬ titled “The Ring” should be prepared and presented at the February meeting. The cast consisted of Miss Katherine Grow, Mrs. Cook, Miss Dodd, Messrs. Davison, Winston Cooper, Bert Redding, Dave Smith, Eric Buskins, J. Maxwell, L. Mogridge, S. Weller, 0. Kelley, and all played their parts in a most commendable manner. After the New Year, at a series of meetings held in the Cafe¬ teria, the works of three of the leading modern dramatists were studied. Miss Dyde’s clever and amusing talk on the work of A. A. Milne was enthusiastically received by the students. Miss Fisher presented selections from J. M. Barrie’s plays in such a charming- fashion as to endear the author and his characters to everyone present. Miss Simons gave a paper on Bernard Shaw, which was both ' interest¬ ing and instructive. As a result of these informative and inspiring addresses members of the Society had the desire to study in detail the works of the above mentioned dramatists. The final and most important production for the year was given Friday, April 8th in the Normay School Auditorium,. Three one-act plays were successfully presented under the able direction of Miss Fisher and Miss Dyde. The program w 7 as as follows: “SPREADING THE NEWS”—Lady Gregory— The cast—Mrs. Tarpey, Mrs. Fleming: A Policeman (Jo Muldoon), Mr. Dave Smith; A Magistrate, Mr. Leslie Mogridge; Mrs. Fallon, Mrs. Cook; Bartley Fallon, Mr. Sidney Weller; Jack Smith Mr. Albert Beauregard; Shawn Early, Mr. Harold Newman; Mrs. Tully, Miss McNally; James Regan, Mr. Horace Allen; Tim Casey, Mr. Ernest Foul sen. “THE OLD LADY SHOWS HER MEDALS”—J. M. Barrie.— The cast—Mrs. Dowey, Miss Margaret Lang; Mrs. Mickleham, Miss Helen Bard; Mrs. Twymley, Miss Wolla Jahrons; Mrs. Haggerty, Miss May Fawcett; Mr. Willings, Father Dunbar; Kenneth Dowey, Mr. John Laurie. “WUItZTEL FLUMMERY”—A. A. Milne— The cast—Viola Crawshaw, Miss Jean Williamson, Mr. Richard Meri- ton, Mr. Jas. Blair; Mr. Robert Crawshaw, Mr. Francis Wootton; Mrs. Margaret Crawshaw, Miss Herminia Carrier; Mr. Denis Clifton, Mr. David Milligan. The piano selections of Miss Mary Evans and the vocal solos of Mr. Sylvestre were well received. Miss Kate Ramsay, Mr. Winston Cooper and Mr. Hargraves rendered most valuable assistance behind the scenes as stage managers. The proceeds from this entertainment were donated to the Students’ Union to enable it to pay for new stage scenery, the lack of which has always proved a great handicap. This equipment will be left for the use of future students with the sincere hope that the work of the Dramatic ' Society may be even more extensive and successful in future years. -N-- ®f)t @lee Club The Students’ Glee ' Club was organized in December last by Madame Ellis Browne, who is arranging to present the operetta, “All At Sea,” by David Stevens, a Gilbert and Sullivan dream in two acts, consisting of songs and chorus from “H.M.S. Pinafore,” “Pirates of Penzance,” “Patience,” “lolanthe” and “The Mikado.” The story and libretto are well arranged and the characters will be taken by the following students: Captain Corcoran, of the good ship Pinafore—Harold McBain, Howard Sadler; Sir Joseph Porter, first lord of the admiralty—David Smith; Ralph Rackstraw able seaman — Jacques Sylvestre; Dick Deadeye, boatswain—Eric Huskins; MidsMpmite—Cecil Brandvold, Roy Curdy; The Pirate King, chief of the Pirates of Penzance—John Cousley; Frederick, a pirate apprentice—Glyn Thomas; Police Ser¬ geant, of the Metropolitan force—Arthur Davison; Grosvenor, a poet —Allan Connelly; Strephon, an Arcadian shepherd (late member of parliament)—G.

Act 2: Morning of the fol¬ lowing day. The operetta will be given in costume at the Normal School on Thursday and Friday evenings, May 19 and 20, commencing at 8:15 p.m. It is hoped that the students and their Mends will be present in large numbers at each performance, as considerable time and energy has been spent in preparing this very attractive operetta, and with the above excellent east a most enjoyable evening is assured. CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Thirteen ®f)e Speaker’s Club ®be formal j9outl) (By WILLIAM F. BURKE, 2-A) _ Soon after our Normal course opened, M ' iss Dyde, our instruc¬ tor in English, suggested organizing a Speakers’ Club. Her object was not only to train our melodious voices, but to so arouse our in¬ terest in public speaking that we would give it a place on the pro¬ gram of our own schools. The idea seemed to take quite a hold upon the students in general, but for some unknown reason no one appeared at the appoint¬ ed place to organize the club. Miss Dyde, in the hour of her dis¬ appointment, turned in hope to that illustrious Class 2-A. Perhaps she thought they had the greatest need of the training. However, the class undertook the work and a very successful club was organized. At the beginning of the second term the other classes, realizing what they were missing, showed their desire to be included in the club, and so a Normal-wide Speakers’ Club was organized (with Miss Dyde as honorary President). That rollicking son of Erin, Owen Kelly, 2-A, was elected president and Art Davison, also of 2-A, secre¬ tary. Miss Dyde acted as general superintendent and confidential critic at all times. The meetings were held every Friday during the noon recess. The program usually consisted of two or three talks on various topics by members of the class. On one occasion a debate was held which proved “That all foreign troops should be withdrawn from China at once.” On the whole the Speakers’ Club has been undoubtedly a suc¬ cess. Some have become proficient in the art of speaking,, though most of us still have much to learn. We may also add that many a towel for domestic science was hemstitched during these meetings. Miss Goldie, we know you will give us all the credit we deserve. In conclusion I wish to extend the thanks of the members of the club to Miss Dyde who added to our student activities the Speakers’ Club, and contributed towards its success so much of her valuable time. We feel sure that as the years go by we will look back with pride on this organization which afforded us so many hours of real pleasure, and which gave us the basic training in an art which may (who can tell) lead many of us to fame and fortune. dje 2=3 ©rcfjeatra This orchestra was organized during the first month of school, and as a result of splendid co-operation of the members, made ex¬ cellent progress. Although they were not able to supply music to the school the boys themselves received much enjoyment from their ef¬ forts The orchestra was composed of the following members: Glyn Thomas, pianist and leader; Lowell Parrish, violinist; Henry Stankie- wich, violinist; Percy Griffiths, violinist; Harvey Allan, comet; How¬ ard Larson, saxaphone; George Findlay, ukulele; Kenneth Scott, trom¬ bone; Sidney Weller, drums. Home from Normal came the stripling Calm and cool and debonair With a scanty stock of rudiments, And a wondrous wealth of hair; With a lazy love of langor, And a healthy hate of work And a cigarette devotion That would shame a tuibaned Turk. And he called his father “Governor” With a cheek serene and rude; While that angry, worthful rustic Called his son “a blasted dude.” And the climax reached a crisis, On the lawn behind the shed; “Now I’m going to lick you, sonny,” (So the honest rustic said, “And I’ll knock that Normal nonsense From your noodle mighty quick.” Then he fell upon the chappy Like a wagon-load of brick. But the youth serenely murmured As he gripped his angry Dad “You’re a splendid rusher. Governor, But you tackle very bad.” Then he rushed him for a centre And he tipped him for a fall, And he scored a goal and touchdown With his Papa as the ball.

It is not the business of the school teacher to assume functions that rightly belong to the home, but an earnest teacher will endeavor to raise the quality of the moral and intellectual training of the schools. In assuming responsibility of the teaching profession, she should ask herself, “What are the true functions of education, and what is my task?” The one word, “character,” should stand out in her mind and her answer to herself should be, “I am going out to help in the greatest of all construction work, ‘the building up of character’.” One fundamental thing, in which all creeds and sects agree, is that the basis of character formation is the practice and knowledge of the sense of honor. “Example is better than precept,” and the teacher should be a model in speech and actions, ©he should ever have it in mind that she has in her care the immature minds of the men and women of tomorrow, “the props of a nation.” The word “education” comes from the Latin word “educere,” to draw out, and the derivation of the word signifies its meaning. Education is a system of training whereby all the faculties of the pupil are developed to form what we call “a well-rounded char¬ acter-” Education is a system of preparations for complete living. Therefore the whole man must be trained, head, hand and heart, that is, intellect, will and feeling. President Coolidge said once that “the mere sharpening of the wits, the bare training of the intellect, the naked acquisition of science measure the power for good, but they likewise increase the power for evil.” Therefore a moral training must accompany the intellectual training; the sense of duty, self- respect, cleanliness, truthfulness, proper regard for the rights of others should be impressed on the child. In childhood is laid the foundation on which the structure of life is raised. Habits and dispositions are run into certain moulds and determine education, and opportunity alone can determine the forma¬ tions—the child’s instinctive desires are too vague. The school directs the child’s attention to things that are lovely and of good report and thereby helps to arrange his “system of values” which form the basis of his character. Men’s standards will change, systems of theology and morals, of knowledge and of art will come and go, but the worth of a man to himself and to his generation will always depend upon his tastes and upon his choice of satisfaction out of the avenues of experiences to which modern life invites him. So schools are maintained because society wants children to set their affections on what is worthiest. Teaching is an art; it is based on general principles. The great study of the teacher should be the child-study and the investigations of all that concern growth from stage to stage in child life and experience. The methods by which this growth can be most prudently directed can be deduced therefrom. A teacher is not merely a dispenser of information or the dis¬ tributor of crumbs of knowledge that she has received in academies, nor is she a lecturer concerned only with her own point of view. She should concern herself with the pupil’s viewpoint and her effort should be to induce, stimulate and develop the primary conditions of learning. Is then a teacher’s certificate a mark by which she is forever branded, as competent, capable and efficient to carry on the work of education and building of character? No, a certificate of real value should certify not only the attainments of the teacher at critical times (exams.), but testify to her thorough knowledge of the child and his needs. The thoughtful teacher brings her mind into communion with the mind of the pupil—then there is fusion of ideas, feelings and senti¬ ments. The teacher should aim at vividness and motivation which secure attention and interest. Since learning proceeds through in¬ terest, there should be a spirit of interest in every process and op¬ eration of work. “Right discrimination is the beginning of success” and success in teaching depends not so much upon wealth of facts, arguments and completeness of knowledge, as upon the power sympathetically to cul¬ tivate deliberate thinking. A capable teacher uses few words and imposes few rules. She neither promises nor threatens; she is firm, yet kind, and does not expect too much, but insists on a minimum. Teaching makes exceptional demands upon the intelligence, de¬ votion and knowledge of those engaged in it. A teacher’s training is never complete but the equipment gained in training should provide methods of investigation which will reveal at each step of advance the nature and value of the next. So with a good beginning made the progress in a noble life work is assured. Remember that the work is character-building, and character is greater than cleverness. “It is better to have second-hand brains than second-hand character.” Establish high ideals of unselfishness and sacrifice, and enthrone in the schools throughout the nation the most worthy ideal of all, that of service and love of fellow men. Pre¬ pare the child for life’s battle and make him a useful, happy and healthy citizen. CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Fiji ecn SOCIAL THE FIELD DAY In September, shortly after the opening of school a Field Day was organized for the purpose of getting all the students acquainted with each other. This was particularly acceptable to the men’s class who were especially eager to meet some fair damsel who had caught their attention. On the day appointed the students all assembled at St. George’s Island, each wearing a large name-card for the purpose of self-introduction. Many games and stunts were arranged for the afternoon, the feature of which was a baseball game between the men of the first and second classes. Mr. D. A. McKerricher acted as umpire and the game resulted in a decisive victory for the second class men. Everybody entered into the spirit of the occasion and the aid of the staff members helped to make the afternoon enjoyable for everyone. On leaving Normal School and on reviewing the events of the past year, our thoughts seem to travel from the first Field Day to the Kid’s Party as being the most rollicking and enjoyable events of the season. We wish that we could once more get all the students together in a Field Day such as this, so as to increase the impressions which these events always have upon us. THE FIRST DANCE On Hallowe’en Night, October 29th, 1926, the Normalites held their first dance in the Assembly Hall of Normal School. A large number of students were present and after shaking hands with the patrons, Miss ' Simons, Mr. Scott, and Dr- Coffin, arrived in the hall which was effectively decorated with Hallowe’en favors. Get- acquainted games were first indulged in. Sgt.-Maj. O’Hanlon acted as director of games. The girls formed a large circle on the outside of a circle of boys. When the music started the two circles moved in opposite directions. When the music stopped, each Normalite talked to the nearest person of the opposite sex, asking such questio ns as, “What is your name?” “Where are you from?” The idea was a good one and all barriers of reserve were swept away, and the Nor¬ malites were just one big family out to enjoy the evening—and 1 they certainly did. Mr. iScott proved himself to be an ideal master of ceremonies, as he directed the dances from the platform. A novelty dance in which Miss Goldie and her partner were the only couple to keep the floor after repeated eliminations, was greeted with cheers of applause. Later in the evening an enjoyable supper was served in the cafeteria. Everyone enjoyed this dance, for nobody could feel shy, or strange, not even the shyest boy, for as we will all remember, the boys were outnumbered three to one by young ladies demanding attention. guests were met and ushered into the suitably decorated hall by Dr. and Mrs. Coffin, Miss Olive Fisher, Miss C. Dyde and Miss Alberta Rendall, who composed the Reception Committee. Mr. W. E. Hay, of the staff, acted in a very capable manner as master of ceremonies. Other members of the staff present were: Miss Rae Chittick, Miss Ida Giles, Mr. D. A. McKerricher and Mr. A. E. Hutton. A very exciting feature of the evening was a treasure hunt through the halls. This was followed by games and contests in which all the students took part Dancing was afterwards enjoyed, the music being played by Ab. Adams’ Orchestra. A very dainty lunch was served in the cafeteria, followed by more dancing, after which the social ended. Everybody joined in voting the evening a decided success. THE KID’S PARTY The evening of March 17th, showed a remarkable and rejuven¬ ated change in the aged Normal students. Many prominent doctors claim that it was only the spirit of the good old Saint Patrick which caused this, but in all probability it was due to the effect of gland study in psychology, coupled with the efforts of Prof. Makeover, which was responsible for this marvellous effect. The students trooped into the hall attired in all manner of costumes. From Art Chyrsler as a baby to Cecil Brandvold as a farm hand, girls in rompers and men in short pants; they were all there. The hall was suitably decorated with green and white streamers and blue balloons. Mr. Hay, at¬ tired in an evening suit acted as director of games, and many games were played during the evening by the members of the different Irish families. The last hour of the evening was devoted to dancing, the music being supplied by Freddie Rutherford’s International Or¬ chestra. At twelve bells the students ceased their contortionistic movements (as iDr. Coffin would say) and all filed along the home¬ ward path to their respective dwellings. THE THEATRE PARTY The evening of May 6th, found the Palace Theatre as the scene of a very enjoyable theatre party, arranged by the Social Committee under the chairmanship of Miss Dorothy Hawley. The feature pres¬ entation was ‘‘Slide, Kelly, Slide,” which was both amusing and en¬ tertaining. Alfredo Meunier and his Palace Symphony Orchestra, provided the music and was kind enough to co-operate with the students by playing pieces which the Normalites sang. Whistles, crickets and other noise-makers were passed about and the students made themselves quite noticeable. About 11 p.m. the party broke up and the weary and financially embarrassed Normal men pro¬ ceeded out into the wilderness to take their young ladies home. THE JANUARY DANCE On the evening of January 28th, the second dance of the Nor¬ mal social season tqok place in the Assembly Hall of the scho ol. The EDITOR’S NOTE—Owing to the lack of sufficient space, we are un¬ able to report on the many class functions which have been held during the course of the past year. As a result space is only used for those events which were school-wide. Page Sixiei CALGARY NORMAL SCI W )a t 3 Cfjinfe of Practice teaching (By Ida Vyse, Grade Six, Normal Practice School) When students are going to Normal one of their duties is to teach children in public schools. This is to see if the students are qualified enough to teach schools of their own, and is also to give them practice under teachers who are qualified. I like to have students practise teaching me because when I’m old enough I’m going to be a teacher. I think it is a very good thing to have practice teaching carried on. If the student’s teaching is sometimes monotonous, it should give the pupils some inspirations as to how they might improve it if ever they themselves are practice teaching. —Courtesy Miss McEachern, Practice School. ®l)t fell (This yell, written by Roy Curdy of 1-A, won the $5.00 prize for the best school yell).

GIRLS’ B4SKETBALL, 1926-27 Basketball activities began very soon after the elections, when teams from each room played. These competitions were held under the direction of Harold Lee, the President of the Athletic Association. As the Technical School had definite hours in the gymnasium it was necessary to hold 1 games at noon. Nearly every noon hour cheers could be heard as the closely matched teams played. The winners of the inter-room competition was the Short Course. Early in the season Sergeant-Major O’Hanlon was working with the girls, trying to get material for a school team. The Sergt., with the help of Miss Alice (Speed) Allen and Miss Helen Mlahaffy, chose the team. The girls were defeated only twice and if you say it quickly it doesn’t sound bad. The Calgary Canucks and the Central Grads, were too much for our girls, but they succeeded in defeating the “Y” team and the Medicine Hat girls, both here and at the Hat. When the Canucks defeated our girls they lost chances of the city championship. We were sorry, but every girl did her best and spent much precious time in practise. Personnel of the Team Helen Mahaffy—Captain and right forward. Helen was responsible for a large number of the points scored in the games- Hails from Calgary. A1 McMurray—From Calgary. A snappy little forward and a wonder for her size. Eva Kumka—Claims Calgary as her home. A good shot. Effective under the basket. Margaret Shellian—A good shot, but did not have a chance to show up well. Substitute forward. Hails from Canmore. Winogene Brandow—Regular centre: from Lethbridge. Plays 40- minute basketball. Went big guns in the Hat in more ways than one. Jean Ramsay—Substitute centre. From Calgary. Played for a few games and worked in well with the Normal quintet. Bert McLean—From Innisfail. Started at guard and played a good game, but was forced to quit the game early in the season. Frances Noble—Defence; from Medicine Hat. Excelled in the games at the Hat. Marian Bagley—Regular defence; hails from iBanff. Can be de¬ pended upon to stick to the fastest forward. Evellyn Williams—From Lethbridge. Plays a good defensive game. Equally good at centre. A1 Allen—From Calgary. Commonly known as “Speed.” Played forward on the team in the later games. Keen on long shots.

The boys’ basketball season has been a very full and successful one. At the first of the season the house league was played off. This was won by the 2-A-2 team, consisting of Russel, Nichols, Christie, McBain and McFauI. In the latter part of October a team was entered in the city league. Being near the first of the season, and the league being of the best in the city, it was hardly a success from our point of view. However, it turned out the crack team of which Normal boasted this spring. The boys played six games as follows: Nov. 10, vs. Canucks—lost 16-24. Nov. 17, vs. Y-M.C.A.—won 44-41. Nov. 24, vs. Technicals—lost 14-24. Dec. 1, vs. Canucks—lost 16-22. Dec. 14, vs. Technicals—won 28-21. Dec. 18, vs. Y.M.C.A.—lost 45-20. The first game against the “Y” was the best of the league. In the first half the boys were down 10-30, but staged a wonderful come-back in the second, winning with a final score of 44-41. After the New Year the team entered the Provincial Interme¬ diate League. In addition to the league they played several exhibi¬ tion games—lost one to the Y.M.C.A., and winning two from Red Deer. In the league the boys won in this district by defeating the Technicals two straight games with a total of 86-54. Edmonton, the winners of the northern division, defaulted, so the next series was with Medicine Hat. In this series the boys played hard, winning both home and home games with a total of 71-41 points, making the Cal¬ gary Normal ' School the holder of the Provincial Intermediate ' Boys’ Basketball Championship for the third successive year. It is a pity to see what “Sarg.” O’Hanlon reports to be “one of the best teams he has had” broken up after such a short and suc¬ cessful season together. PERSONNEL OF THE TEAM Harold W. (“Had”) Lee— ' Captain. A fast man and a sure shot from any angle. Hails from Cardston. “Had” has just finished a brilliant year playing for C. N. S. Hugh “Sparky” Russel—Medicine Hat. “ ' Sparky” is another of the CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Nineteen team’s steadies. Together with Miller arid Lee he completes a pretty forward line. B. O- Miller—An elongated gentleman from the Practice School. An experienced and speedy forward man. Lome Nichols—Guard. Medicine Hat. A clever and dependable guardsman who can feed the forward line. Harold “Mac” McBain—Medicine Hat. Plays a strong game as guard. The smallest member of the team, but one of the best- Lee “Lefty” Leavitt—Oardston. Lee plays a steady game as guard, and is very effective. Newton Grimmett—iSub. forward. “Newt.” has experience and is a fast and sure man on the floor. Jack McFaul—Sub. guard. Jack plays a nice game as substitute on defence. “Ham” Byers—“Ham” is another product of Medicine Hat. Plays forward—a fast man. Campbell Hargraves—Sub. defence. Known as “the water boy.” Campbell is always there and can be depended on. A. E. Hutton—Takes a keen interest in basketball. Puts “the old fight” into the team and aids materially. Sgt.-Maj. O’Hanlon—We all know the “ ' Sarg.” and we know him for a good sport. Has coached three championship teams and con¬ fesses that this is the best. We wish him all possible luck in succeeding years. -N- Curling (By HUGH M. LUNDIE, 2-A) A curling club was enthusiastically orgarized early in the season, under the leadership of Mr. Loucks. Mr. Loucks is himself an ardent devotee of the game, and the discerning curlers elected him to the dual position of Hon. President and Official Coach. George Findlay was chosen president of the association and Les Mogridge secretary-treasurer. A committee wias also formed to work with the executive, composed of Messrs. Wootton, McCollough, Milligan and Horace Allan. After considerable redistribution of the members, eight rinks were finally arranged, Messrs. Ramsey, Blair and Curdy, of 1-A, and Messrs. Mogridge, Wootton, Findlay, McCollough and Horace Allan, of 2-A, skipped the various rinks. During the winter months there were plenty of opportunities for playing and the members of the curling club improved in the art. Toward the end of the season a ' bonspiel was arranged. Four rinks came through to the semi-finals. Findlay was defeated twice and dropped out. Mogridge and his rink, composed of Herbert Allen, Weller and Lundie, played through a series of victorious games and had high hopes of winning the coveted crests of the victors. Wootton, ably supported by his men, Harvey Allen, Dave Milligan and Kennedy, managed to frustrate the hopes of Mogridge by defeating that skip. Ramsey, playing with two men, Trenaman and Thompson, also de¬ feated Mogridge. This left Wootton and Ramsey in the finals. These two teams struggled through a short game in which the result was always in doubt. In a close and breath-taking finish, Ramsey won by a very small margin, thus securing the crests that are emblematic of supremacy in the Normal Curling world. The entire program of the curling club was a great success- We feel that much of this success is due to the efforts of the execu¬ tive in promoting interest in, and enthusiasm for the game, and to the whole-hearted leadership of Mr. Loucks. If all Normal School Curling Clubs proved to be such a success we might confidently expect to see the teachers of this province be¬ coming educators in the art of curling as well as in the art of arithmetic or spelling. -N--- Code: “Can you lend me a buck for a month, old boy?” Wink: “What does a month-old boy want of a dollar?” Baseball and Football.

This national sport got away to a good start for the season, when early in December Mr. Harold Lee, Athletic President, called a meeting of all men interested. A hockey club was formed which im¬ mediately got busy. Mr. Loucks was unanimously elected Honorary President. Mr. E. R. Borgal was elected president, and Mr. F. J. Kennedy, secretary. Representatives from the rooms were elected: Mr. L. Graves, 2-A; Mr. Sutherland, 1-A, and Mr. Scott, from the Short Course. These enthusiastic and hard-working individuals arranged for the upkeep of the rink and a practice game, and entered a team in the Junior Hockey League. The first league game was played December 6th. The boys were hardly prepared for the encounter and were beaten by the Junior Caps, a stumbling block for most of the teams in the league. During the league season the rink was very seldom in condition and there was- little chance to practise, so the team was unable to compete on an even basis with the well-drilled city teams. The much blamed practice teaching also made it impossible to get out the full team at times, and a game had to be defaulted. Though the team always put up a game struggle, sad to say, they never won a league game. But when, towards the end of the season they met Midnapore the country team bore the brunt of repeated losses and went down 8-6 before the hard-fighting Normal clan. An inter-room league started off well, but was never completed. When the league broke up the main contenders were both of the 1-A teams and one of the three 2-A teams. Personnel: Players in the Junior League team at one time or another were: Glen Paul—One of the Short Course fellows, who did his bit in goal before leaving us at Christmas. Christie, 2-A—Tried his hand at goal, but gave it up in favor of a spare job on the forward line, where he turned in some good games. Haley—Taking over the goal-tending job late in the season, he proved a wonderful goalie and acted as a rejuvenator to the team. Bob Reynolds, 1-A—A stalwart of the team, if not in size, in prowess. A sterling defence player and quick on th.e break-away. CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Twenty-one Johnnie Maxwell, 1-A—One of the steadies of the team, who always turned in a sterling game paired with Reynolds on defence. Len Graves (Captain)—A sturdy of 2-A who played a good part-time position as centre. “Chuck” Bridgland, 1-A—Who at centre played the best and most consistent game on the team throughout the season. A fast skater and hard shot. Ev. Borgal—One of the 2-A gang. Officiated part-time on the forward line. Jack Melling, 2-A—Played a good game throughout the season as a sub. forward. Bill Sutherland, 1-A—Made a good showing in all games in which he played. “Buck” Buckles—Another of the Short Course. In the only game he played he was the mainstay of the team. Harold McBain, Geo. Findlay, H. E. Allan—Each played part- time in the first game, but for various reasons couldn’t get out for the rest of the season. -N- HUMOR “Here’s a letter from that teacher who is coming to board here, Mary,” said the farmer. “He wants to know if there’s a bath in the house, and how often he can use it. What shall I tell him?” “Tell ‘im the truth,” said his wife. “Tell ’im if he needs a bath, he’d better take one afore he comes.” “Where are you g’oing, little flea?” “I’m going to the dogs.” Shy Young Thing: “ ' Sir, where is the petticoat department?” Sid W. (grinning): “On the fourth floor, Miss, in the antique department-” “It’s the little things in life that tell!” said Evelyn Williams, as she dragged her kid brother from underneath the sofa. A teacher entered the class and began: “Now gentlemen, pay particular attention to this- I have, in this, a particularly fine speci¬ men of a disected frog.” Slowly he unfolded the paper and disclosed some sandwiches and cold chicken. “But, Great Scott!” he exclaimed, surely I ate my lunch!” Course S tubent£ Boyer, Wm.

Page Trvenly-irvo CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Class Biographies Class 1-A We present for your perusal the following what, when, why and wherealbouts of the world-famous “1-A Gang”: C, BRANDVOLD— “Cec,” popularly known as the “Middy,” made his reputation as novelist of 1-A and as vocalist at the 1-A Lit. He has the al¬ most uncanny habit of having his homework done on time. Has return to Claresholm will not be without an, increase of friends, resembling a multiplication table. WINSTON COOPER— From C. C. I., is usually seen in deep consultation with Miss Fisher regarding “Dramatics ” He may be called “Wink” with¬ out any violent effects. In spite of the fact that he was born and raised in Calgary he seems to prefer “Alta” yet. ELMER EVANS— “A sweet-faced man; as proper a man as one shall see in a summer day.” He graduated from Didsibury High School with honors—“’nuff said.” Anyone seeing Elmer when he is not busy will kindly report the matter to the nurse. ERIC HUSKINS, East Calgary Hi.— (On the way to a party at 40 below) Eric’s fair partner: “Why so quiet tonight?” Eric (disgustedly): “Aw! Get your own hands cold.” He spends his time looking for new worlds to con¬ quer and points on which to argue with the instructors. R. J. REYNOLDS— “Bob” could be president of everything if he would only stop resigning. He was president of athletics and business manager of the Year Book. His favorite occupation is meeting young- ladies in the hall—on business, you understand. Bob’s great ambition in life is to invent a recipe to comb his hair straight. W. RICHARDS— “Ricky” of Calgary. “0 sleep, it is a gentle thing.” “A little learning is a dangerous thing, often leading to sentimentality.” Ricky’s ambition in life is to sleep with his eyes open in class periods. Famous sayings: “Did’ya ever hear the one about — — etc.” IVAN MOONEY— A “Medicine Hatter,” sometimes called the late Mr. Mooney, more from the time he arrives at class than from any tendency to mortality. His chief occupation is turning around for Mr. McKerricher. Famous sayings: “Too numerous to mention.” JOSEPH BERCUSON— Of Calgary, basks under the fairest smiles of the instructors. Quite popular with the ladies. His ambition is to live long enough to enjoy the Old Age Pensions ' Bill. “Have you got your homework done?” JAMES BLAIR— Represents the fair town of Hanna. He has attained great popu¬ larity during his sojourn with us, especially with the ladies; in all probability due to that winsome smile. Unless he is careful he’ll not get away “Scott” free. ALAN CONNELLY, C. H. C. I.— Still another handsome article of popularity from 1-A. A great success as secretary for the fall term. His favorite occupation is teaching two-part songs for Madame Ellis Browne. His am¬ bition in life to make everybody smile is also a success. CLARENCE ENRIGHT— “Henny” came to Normal from Stettler. Has a hobby of col¬ lecting handkerchiefs. His favorite occupation is “missing periods.” Clarence’s ambition in life is to be editor of “The Calgary Herald.” C. A. HUDSON— “Arlie” hails from Southern Alberta, the exact place being Ma- grath. He is one of the few steadies in 1-A. His favorite oc¬ cupation in studying; hte will go through Normal with flying colors. JOHN A.

The President, unlike Canute, stopped the tide with uplifted hand and 1 asked the chairman of committee the meaning of the extraordinary form of response. Mr. Oharb ' e Reilly explained that, as no class member had been willing to nominate any other than himself to act on the com¬ mittee, so each had refused to consider any other curriculum than his own. To keep everyone in good humor it is proposed that each submit a report. The President clutched the table, swallowed, recov¬ ered himself and asked in his best aide-de-camp manner, “Did you not, sir, foresee this consequence?” “Well, no, John, to tell the truth, it didn’t occur to me.” After a warm discussion, during which Father Dunbar and Mr. Macleod were seen to be in earnest conference, Mr. Macleod spurred his portly associate to his feet. Father Dunbar screwed his head com¬ pletely around ,on bis neck and suggested owlishly that, to preserve peace and obtain some satisfaction for all, it might be well to in¬ corporate in the curriculum a suggestion from each member. Mr. Macleod modestly ventured that furthermore such a scheme would facilitate the settlement of subjects upon members of the staff, pro¬ vided it were stipulated that each person should teach the subject he proposed- The President’s jaws relaxed and sixteen brows cleared. The proposal was adopted in the form of a resolution with the amend¬ ment that the purpose and value of each subject be advanced, and that the committee of the whole declare acceptance or rejection of that subject. The President then gave his eyes the alphabetical tent upon Miss Dalgiiesh. The following curriculum was adopted with despatch: Instructor Miss Dalgiiesh Father Dunbar Mr. French Miss Goozee Mr. Hargrave Mr. Laurie Mr. Laverty Mr. McCullough Mr. Macleod Mr. C. Reilly Miss Scott Mr. Sylvestre Miss Torgerson Miss Williamson Miss McCallum Subject Nature Study. Cod Fishing. Scientific Dozing. Boston Cookery. Wide Open Spaces. Practical Polo. Canadian Rugby. Baseball. Bagpipes. Political History and Geography of the Irish Free State. Gy Cology of Coughin Yodeling in The Gap. Ethics. Sprinting. The Mentality of Apes. Value or Purpose Etiquette for cut worms. For Wampole’s. To kill time neatly. (Complete rest in bed). Hyper-beanical. Unlimited. To cultivate punctuality. Pugno-carthetical. Aesthetical. Appreciation thereof. To prove Glasgow is not the capital. To E radicate the W hoop. For echoes. “Pretty awful.” High-Jeanical emergencies To provide family trees. A report of the committee upon real estate was then called for. The chairman Mr. McCullough, reported that his attempt to trade Stanford University Campus for Bowness Park had failed. Miss Goozee begged to announce a recent communication that Boston was not disposed to buy the east end of Cape Cod for a suburb. Mr. CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page-Forly-nine Frank Reilly regretted to say that there had been such a liquidation of property in the Lower Mississippi Valley that land values were submerged and negotiation of his homestead would be useless. When, following this, a report from the treasurer stated that preferred stock subscriptions from within totalled a value of $15.84, there was a noticeable depression of spirits. Then the President ex¬ plained that anyone who knew he would be returning for the short course could not be expected to subscribe. In response to a request from the chair, “Would any such please stand?” fifteen stood up, the President himself remaining on his feet. Silence hung like a pall. Then a soft sigh as the gallant Dreadnaught glided down, down into the depths of educational oblivion with all on board- The sun dipped into the sea and her blood-red rays lay upon the waters. In the dim undersea, swathed with the greying, desolating strands of hygienic school management, enclosed by psychological tentacles of rationalization, lie the one-time members of the Grads. ’27.
