Abstract: This Christmas issue begins with yuletide messages that comment on the war, while Christmas themed articles pertain to decorating the home, a short story, Christmas celebrations in foreign lands, and the effect of art in the home. An interesting article in this issue focuses on a rural school fall fair where the girls won first prizes in the agricultural categories. While alumna Ethel Chapman contributes an article on conformity. Agricultural articles address agriculture in Western Canada, the winter storage of apples, and plant research at the College. Other agricultural articles pertain to how greenhouses can assist the farmer, the art of farm beekeeping, and field drainage demonstrations. The prize winning results of the Ontario Provincial Plowing Match are listed in this issue. Alumni contribute an article on the war campaign in German South Africa, and wartime correspondence. Wartime articles highlight how the war has affected the poultry industry and the sociology of wartime. Campus news reports on the athletic endeavors of the students and Literary Society activities. Alumni news includes wartime correspondence, and alumni updates. The Macdonald Institute column reports on the Macdonald women's stunt night and preparing Christmas cakes for the O. A. C. boys at the front. While the Locals column provides campus humour.
