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 YEAR BOOK, 1926-27 Page Nine Calgary formal cfjool Uebates (By NORA BROWN. 2-C) The Calgary Normal School Debating Team first showed its talent on December 13. 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.

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. O’Hanlon—“Stretch away up or you’ll never be as tall as I am.” Mr. McCalla—(Adjusting the lantern): “This next slide brings out that point very well.” Mr. Hutton—“You fellows are big dubs to let the girls take your minds off your work-” Mr. Hay—(In a frock-tailed coat, directing games) : “All the Kellys line up over there.” Miss Chiitick—“Last day we were taking diphtheria; I think we will take strychnine today.” Miss Fisher—“We notice it so much more among the ‘gairls’.” Miss Simons—“Have you ali got your Courses of Studies here?” Miss Currie—(Smiling sweetly): “Don’t forget to sign.” Miss Giles—“Dr. ' Coffin is busy now.” should be donated to Mr. Hugh McGillcrest Lundlie for any persona! expenses, incidentals, etc., which might arise. 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. Mine. Browne—“Now, little lady, give us doh.” -N- “Now, Weller,” said Mr. Hay, “how much is seven times eight?” “Fifty-six,” replied Sid. “That’s pretty good ” remarked Mr. Hay. “Pretty good!” exclaimed ' Sid. “Hang it all, sir, it’s perfect!” Richards: “Can I see you across the street?” She: “How do I know—stay here and try.” Art Chrysler was in a temper as he fixed a flat tire. “It’s going to rain,” said Bertie. “Well, let it rain,” said Art gruffly. “I was going to,” was the reply. EVER HEARD THESE? Many people have written nothing which will ever live, but certainly our instructors have said things which will never die—at least not in our memories. Here are some common ones: Angry Father: “Well, young lady, explain yourself. Where have you been all night?” Flapper Daughter: “Oh Dad, dear, I was sitting up with the sick son of the sick man you are always telling mother you sat up with,..’
