Victoria College Students' Carnival. Friday and Saturday, 29th & 30th June, 1906



Air—"The World went very well [unclear: turn]."

"His energetic fist
Ever ready to resist
A dictatorial word."

H.M.S. Pinafore.

Though years have passed since the age of stone,
And iron now calls each thing her own,
This age may be called the "Pick" we've shown
For the world went very well then.
For those were the days of hack and hew,
And degrees were of muscle, of bone, and thew,
And lectures were hot, and strong, and few:
Yet students worked very well then.

"I once was a nice looking youth." —Ruddigore.

At last these men like the fossils came
To museum shelves with their iron frame,
And skeletons all with grins proclaim
That the profs, worked very well then.
And now that age has passed away,
We delve sometimes in an age of day,
And we dream as we speed the parting dray
That the bees worked very well then.
