age Thirty-eight 31 Y The brevity of the course does not warrant too extensive excursions into the world of sports, but the branches entered into have been attended with marked success. The outstanding sport in the school this year has been basketball. Early in the season a house league was organized which aimed at giving anyone so desiring an opportunity to participate in this game. This league is composed of some eleven teams, comprising about 85 per cent of the male students. To stimulate interest Birks and Sons have donated a beautiful trophy which is to be awarded to the winning team. To further encourage mass participation in sports, a volley ball league was organized. Plans are under way at present for extensive inter-class baseball for this coming Spring. Interest in soft-ball is also running high. We look forward to some interesting contests along these lines. BOOK Hockey Normal is noted for its hockey teams, but this year it even exceeded its former standards. The Normal Hockey Team although not successful in winning the Tech.-Normal play-offs, was one of the best ever turned out by the school. This was due not only to the excellent quality of material available but to the fine coaching of Mr. Sheane. The team was entered in the Collegiate Inter-School League comprised of Technical, Mount Royal College and Normal, but owing to poor ice facilities the League was unable to carry out the intended schedule. Despite this, Normal and Tech entered the finals for the Picardy Cup but sad to relate Tech, took both games, 4-3 and 3-2, thereby winning the series, and incidentally the trophy, by a score of 7-5. Only one trip was made during the year. Normal went to Strathmore and after giving the fast intermediate team a good run finally lost 5-3. PERSONNEL OF THE TEAM JACK JAMES (Goal) —Saved the team from many defeats by his uncanny ability to get in the road of the puck. Also played for a junior team in the city. JOHN GRAHAM (Sub-Goal) —Learned to play at Taber with others of the team. “MITCH” MILTON (Defence) —Speedy man who comes through in the pinches. Plays too much individual hockey. TOMMY RIEGER —A real defence man who can play in any position. “CEC” HOLMES (Defence) —Everything stops when it hits “Cec”. It’s bound to. He has the habit of being too good natured when playing. EARL MAYNARD (Left Forward) —Plays well with his team mates. He has a heavy shot which will go deadlier as time progresses. ROBERT PATERSON (Centre) —A sure goal getter. Was high scorer, for goals and assists, in the league. It is deem¬ ed advisable that he learn to. control the frenzied gyrations of his feet.

31 Y Glee Club The membership of the Glee Club consists of over a hundred members and practices are held in the Assembly Hall every Thursday afternoon from 4:15 to 5 o’clock. Owing to the exceptionally fine weather during the Fall term, which was conducive to outdoor sports, regular practices were not held, and unfortunately owing to the many interrup¬ tions, through holidays, practice teaching, etc., it is quite impos¬ sible to undertake an Operetta, there being so many students required to present a successful performance. This is very dis¬ appointing to both students and to the Director, who still has hopes of being able to put on an attractive program of Closing Exercises at the end of the term. BOOK Page Thirty-seven The Charity Social Before Christmas the students held a social, the proceeds of which, as the name implies, were given to charity. The activities opened with a guessing game which was won by Miss Horsley and Mr. Powell. After this the evening was filled with dancing and card-playing. Fifty dollars was cleared from this dance. The sum of ten dollars was added to this from the student funds. This money was divided between Sunshine and the Anti-Tuberculosis So¬ ciety, thirty dollars being given to each. A Normalite If you’ve toiled and toiled in the gym And you still have kept your vim, If in Practice School you ' ve taught And criticism’s all you got, If at Art you worked all night And still your marks were very light, If your weakness was a pen And you wrote and wrote again, If always slow you could not add And the results were just too bad, You memorized poem after poem But in exams left memory home, If you had read about the mind And found you still had much to find, If you have learned the note and song But when teaching it went always wrong, If you have thought you knew the noun But those tests surely set you down, If your own class you had to teach And nonchalance you could not reach, Left work undone until the test And then you studied like the rest, You’ve been to Normal School, my lad. A. GORDON.
