Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 49 Issue 5, February 1937
Author: Ontario Agricultural College
Abstract: This mid-winter issue begins with a travel diary of a student's journey through the Scottish Trossachs. The highlight of the issue is the success of the Conversazione and its theme of India. A student contributed a humorous piece on traveling salesmen, while another student presents the debate over the seminar method of teaching at the college. The Literary Section reports on the Canadian Author Evening with the speakers addressing the significance of Vimy Ridge. Toronto's debating team visits the campus with a challenge of speaking without "sprouting a whisker" -- saying "er" or "um" while speaking. Campus news provides updates on the numerous banquets and dances, campus humour, and the production of "Arms and the Man". The Macdonald Institute column contains a poem regarding the Conversat, a humorous "letter home", and news about the new recreation room in Mac Hall. The agricultural article pertains to the College's acquisition of Kerry Hill sheep. The athletic column reports on the various athletic team results. The Bits O' Bronze lecture was on the history of agriculture in Upper Canada. The Alumni column contains alumni updates and changes to the graduate list. The Macdonald Alumnae column reports on the teaching of household arts in Toronto public schools and alumnae updates.
