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,..’

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

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.

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.
