TO THE CLASS OF 1057:
YENTS of great importance have given distinction lo certain years.
Thus the year 1215 is known as the year of Magna Charta. llltd
the year 1603 as the year of the Accession of the Stewart Rings.
BY analogy the year 1937 will be known as the Coronation Year, and
the Normal School Class of this year as the Coronation Class.
To-day the nations are wondering at the courage and optimism of
British people, who, in the shadow of impending world disaster.
calmly making preparation for the pageantry and solemn rituals
are outward symbols of our spiritual relation to our sovereign.
History contemporaneiius with the coronation of many English
Sovereigns, reveals, in part, the source of these qualities of courage.
optimism, and national unity. Une of the darkest hours in the history
of England was that in which the Archbishop of York placed the crown
on the head of William the Conqueror, whose hands were red with
the blood of the conquered English and whose garments reeked with
the smoke of burning English homes. Yet, in that turbulent time was
born a greater England than would have been possible if that hour
had not struck.
At almost as dark an hour took place the coronation of Queen
Elizabeth, whose reign was to prove one of the most illustrious in
Englandls history. Within her borders. England was struggling with
social difficulties and seething with religious strife: while beyond her
confines. traditional enemies were threatening to combine into a mighty
force to overwhelm her. On that Coronation Day, the bond that unites
sovereign and people in complete national unity was strongly forged
as the young Queen graciously received the homage of the peers and
as graciously acknowledged the plaudits of the most lowly of her sub-
jects. She was seen to stay the litter in which she was borne that
simple bodies might speak to her or pass to her a nosegayu.
I commend to you the lessons to be learned from such records
of our nations past.

TO THE 1937 GRADUATINO CLASS
OF THE TORONTO NORMAL SCHOOL
HAVE much pleasure in responding to the request of your Year
Book Committee to send you a brief message before you leave the
school to enter in the near future upon a new career.
You came to the Normal School in September last with, perhaps,
a vague conception of the importance of the work you were about to
undertake. As time went on you realized more completely the oppor-
tunity for accomplishment that lay before you in the schools you are
to teach and in the communities you are to serve. Throug.zh the lectures
in the classrooms of the Normal School, through your observation and
teaching in the practice schools, and through your association with
masters, instructors, critic teachers, and fellow students, your ideals
of usefulness and service have been extended and clarified. I sincerely
hope that, when you leave the school in june, this vision glorious
will go with you, and will continue in the years to come to be your
inspiration as teachers.
I extend to each of you my best wishes for success and happiness
in the profession you have chosen.
HON. DR. L. j. SIMPSON,
