Page Fifty ’31 YEAR BOOK Higher Qualifications jj OR the past half century, hundreds of Canadian I teachers unable to attend the winter sessions of the universities have been assisted to higher academic qualifications through the extension service of Queen’s University. Last year over 809 men and women from all provinces of Canada were registered for extramural work and 500 attended the summer school. Queen’s considers the student’s aptitude and preferences. Teachers desiring to make any of the subjects of English, Classics, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Economics, History, Mathematics and the Sciences their special field of study may do so. Examinations are held in April and September and are the same as for intramural students. Registration for extramural work may be made before April 10th for the summer or September 10th for the winter. The summer school is held for seven weeks during July and August. Kingston is one of the finest summer resorts of Eastern Canada and students find it an ideal place for summer study. For further information write to the Director, Department of Extension. ©ueen ' s University KINGSTON, ONTARIO The Natural History Club The work of the Natural History Club of 1931 has been much enjoyed by all those who have taken active part. Early in the season Mr. Fowler, of the Technical School, entertained us by an illustrated lecture on “Oil.” We actually saw him make “pure test gas” from “crude oil” straight from Turner Valley. On one of those beautiful clear days before Christmas we went on a hike to the “Dam.” About thirty-five members were there. One of the important features of our hike was lunch. We had ten pounds of weiners, sandwiches and delicious coffee. Fol¬ lowing the lunch we examined the structure of the dam under Mr. McCalla’s guidance. At another meeting Mr. C. Thomson (IA) gave an illus¬ trated talk on “Wood.” One or two of his specimens, especially the Birds’ Eye Maple, were particularly interesting because of their rarity. Miss H. Asselstine (1C) recounted the Life History and Habits of Social Wasps. On another occasion we took a trip to the Calgary Museum. Judging by the number who went, this was one of the most popular of our enterprises. This Spring we propose to have many hikes, and, under Mr. McCalla’s direction, study Nature from first hand experiences. M.C. Humor Mr. Hutton (lecturing on spelling and illustrating)-— “Only once in twenty years have I seen a spelling lesson taught and finished in just the allotted time.” And then, did I hear you say, he looked in the mirror? Teacher—“Now we ' ll let this hat represent Mars. Are there any questions before I proceed?” The Class Question-Mark—“Yes, is Mars inhabited?’ 1

Page Fifty-two ’31 Y BIOGRAPHIES Glass IIG EMILY AKINS—Keoma.—We are not quite sure that we know Emily. We have a feeling that she is a visitor. Wonder if she sleeps in? We know that “still waters run deep.” She probably thinks a great deal more than she talks. HELEN ANDERSON—Bawlf.—The girl who is a joy to Dr. Sansom and a God-send to the rest of IIC—she is always ready with a question in psychology. Another of the fair sex of the Normal whose pituitary gland—well, anyway, she’s tall and, fortunate lass, has a sense ' of humor proportionate to her height. LILLIAN ANDERSON—Seven Persons.—We feel sorry for the six persons who were left when this young lady decided to . brighten these halls of learning. She is very intelligent arid hard-working. LOLA ARMEY—Arrowwood.—Blushes in that sweet old-fash¬ ioned way when Dr. Coffin calls her “Lola.” Has an at¬ tractive, well-cared for, wind-blown bob. JOAN BARRIE—Medicine Hat.—It is nothing short of ridicu¬ lous to ask us to write about anyone so inspiring as Joan in so brief a space. Fortunately, we may refer you to a bio¬ graphy more apt than any of ours might be: “Joanne,” being a song written expressly for this young lady. EMMA BOKOVOY—Coaldale.—One gossip no one could ever condemn. Emma is always talking about someone and for¬ ever saying something nice about the individual discussed. When not making kind remarks about her friends, one sees her enjoying hiking and other outdoor sports. PEARL BREWSTER—Macleod.—If there were more girls like Pearl in IIC, it would, in truth, be the Instructors’ paradise. She is the kind of student who can answer Instructors’ ques¬ tions and ask intelligent ones in case it looks seriously like a test. BESSIE BRITNEY—Manyberries.—We would like to take les¬ sons in blushing (awful confession!) from this past mistress in the womanly art. Singing sees her at her best but she will be remembered in jaded halls for her happy faculty of hav¬ ing a happy faculty and for exclaiming, “I never laughed so hard in all my life.” BOOK ETHEL BURNS—Blackie.—The beauty of IIC is greatly en¬ hanced by the presence of this little hazel-eyed blonde from Blackie. Ethel is the Art Editor of this book and was rightly chosen too because of her real ability for arranging things. After seeing Ethel in “A Doll ' s House,” we feel that any wife who would keep a maid like that in the house would be out of her mind and any School Board which would not have her would be very short-sighted. CELESTINA CASAGRANDE—Hillcrest Mines.—Cela is a dashing “Senorita” with black, curly hair and wonderful teeth. Her supreme ambition is to find an easier and shorter way up the hill. NAN COX—Medicine Hat.—“There’s no art can find the mind’s construction in the face,” because to look at Nan one would take her to be a staid sort of person. Do not be misled, dear reader. Nan, when one really knows her, is “hilarity” per¬ sonified. JOSEPHINE DINKEL—High River.—“Jo” is an “all-round” mystic. She excels in predicting the wonders of the dark future and keeps the rest of us in horrible suspense, ready for the worst. With her supernatural powers, she should never be unemployed even if Alberta is short of schools. ETHEL FIELDING—Whatcheer.—That wise-looking girl with the pompadour. She is perpetually and pleasantly smiling and continually polishing her spectacles. Businesslike, that’s Ethel. ELIZABETH FORBES—Hanna.—Beth is one of the ever happy souls in IIC. Has one of those delightful little girl lisps. A good student. Her assignments are always on time. We are told her work is ever “goodly.” CLARA JANE GIBSON—Medicine Hat.—“She needs no eulogy —she speaks for herself,” and she does it so well that the lnstructofs have a habit of looking her way whenever there is a commotion in IIC. But that bobbed-haired assemblage does not absorb all the sunshine. The whole school gets the benefit of Clara Jane’s fun through more media than one. What are the media? ISOBEL HORSLEY—Calgary.—C ottrageous enough to ven¬ ture an answer to all of Mr. Loucks’ questions. Generally she’s right. Anonymously voted as IIC’s spokesman. She’s a great entertainer. Just imagine her saying “Polley, put the kettle on.”
