Abstract: This issue begins another school year with a welcome to the freshmen and returning students. There is the annual reminder for students to become active in the numerous extracurricular activities and to apply themselves to their academic studies. Highlighted is the success of alumnus William Graham in achieving a Doctor of Science degree in his work regarding poultry husbandry. Student contributed articles include a report from the Co-operative Conference in Ontario, an account of the college visit of the Lieutenant Governor, and a report on the success of the Livestock Judging Team. An alumnus contributed an article about his adventure of conducting a plant census in Algoma. The English department's column offers suggestions on proper pronunciation, the etymology of words, and hints for public speaking. There is the completion of the travel diary by a professor regarding his journey through the West Indies. Campus news includes remarks about the college dances, the student initiation rites (including photographs), and an introduction of the presidents of campus organizations. Numerous athletics endeavors are reported with the results of the field day, soccer, and track meets. The Literary column provides a review of the newest extracurricular activity - the campus parliament. The Macdonald Institute column is devoted to welcoming the returning students and perspectives on the women's initiation. The Macdonald Alumnae column reprinted an interesting old photograph of women's graduation exercises, marriage announcements, and alumnae updates. The Alumni column provides alumni updates and a summary of alumni campus visits that occurred over the summer.
