To the left in the picture is 12-year-old Larry Axford, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Axford, South Yarmouth, winner of the championship; with ten-year-old Winston Matthews of Fingal, a close second. The winner qualifies for the regional competition to be held at Chatham. Both lads acquitted themselves admirably, winning the praised of the judges, Charles Eldert of the St. Thomas Public schools’ staff; Miss Ruth W. Cowan of the Collegiate Institute teaching staff; and Dewey Esseltine of the St. Thomas Junior Chamber of Commerce. Winston Matthews, who spoke of his namesake, Right Honorable Winston Churchill, was handicapped in his performance by the very recent loss of one of his front teeth in a mishap. Larry Axford, who spoke on trees and conservation, represented East Elgin; Winston Matthews, West Elgin. Congratulations were also extended the young contestant by A.V. Coulter, who was chairman of the meeting; by J.R. Futcher, immediate past president of the Ontario Federation of the Woman’s Institutes; and Mrs. Cyril Williams, Edgeware Road, Yarmouth, who is 1951 London convention area for Women’s Institutes. The judges were impressed by the pleasing quality of Larry Axford’s voice.”

Photographs of the crowded lunchroom conditions at the Collegiate Institute. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on January 13, 1951, page one: “Lunch Hour Congestion at the Collegiate; You Have to Hurry to Find a Spot to Eat.” 1_1385: “Many of the girls who are a bit tardy in going to the St. Thomas Collegiate Institute basement to eat their noonday lunches are out of luck, so far as getting into the lunchroom is concerned. They have to sit on the stair treads or at the bottom of the stairs of the eat entrance to the building, leading to the basement. This undesirable condition has prevailed for months past. In fact, it was worse last fall when nearly 50 per cent of the student body was taking noonday lunches to school in order to take part in extra-curricular activists. Principal G.W. Trevithick explained that the situation has been relieve to some extent by permitting a group of Grade 13 girls to eat their lunches in an upper hall of the school. Thirty-six folding chairs are being supplied for their use. A teacher will be on duty during the noon hour for supervisory purposes, but these girls with do their own monitoring.” 1_1383: “A noon hour scene on the cold basement of the Collegiate Institute, in the rom that has been remodelled to some extent to provide lunchroom facilities for other students who bring their lunches to school. The lunchroom is under the central front of the school building, with the well of the old school tower off it. It will be noted that one girl in the above photograph, taken on Wednesday of this week, is seated on a garbage can; another on an upturned woven wire container. There has been some improvement in the lunchroom accommodations for the girls since last fall, but even those improvements are almost primitive as compares with the smart, chromium cafeteria and lunchrooms that are part of the modern secondary schools built in the district within the last few years. The latest example of -up-to-date school cafeterias is in the new district high school at Tillsonburg.” 1_1384: “The above photograph does not fully depict the congested conditions that obtains at the Collegiate Institute so far as boys who take their lunches to school are concerned. Some boys have actually been eating their noonday lunches in the dressing rooms off the showers. A little relief has ben provided by permitting groups of Grade 13 boys to ear their noonday lunches in a room adjoining the regular lunch room. One of the unavoidable aspects of the situations is that students are required to eat their lunches in the basemen o, which at its best is not foo. In consequence they consume their lunches in five to ten minutes and get out of the school for the remained of the 90-minute period. In order to overcome this situation, there is a glee practice every Monday and Wednesday during the noon hour, with 70 to 75 students taking part, and also every noon house, stating at 12:30 o’clock, there is volleyball and basketball. This serves the dual purpose of relieving the situation and at the same times giving rural students an opportunity at extra-curricular activities without remaining after school hours.”

Photograph of Caretaker Bill Earhart examining a smashed safe. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on January 15, 1951, page one: “They Really Made a Mess of the Capitol Safe; Frustrated.” 1_1386: “When Bill Earhart, caretaker at the Capitol Theatre, arrived there Monday morning, he found the place in a pretty mess. Burglars had been at work during the night. They hag lugged the 1,700-pound safe from its place in the office, had worked it a third of the way along the west aisle toward the stage and the rear entrance and then apparently abandoned it, but not before they had smashed open the door and made a wreck of the safe generally. And when they did get in to the interior they found it contained an inner safe, in which Saturday’s receipts, a considerable sum, had been placed. They failed to knock the combination off this door. In the outer safe the found a box containing less than $100 in petty cash. In the picture Caretaker Earhart is seen looking over he damaged safe.”
