Places Where They Sing

Places Where They Sing

Derek Christensen, looking for all the world like an animated Jack-in-the-box or something out of a Silly Symphony, assisted by elegant Mr. Sandford, led about fifty Wikitorians in a Community Sing in the Gym. last week.

The repertoire ranged from "Gaudeamus" to "Weeping and Wailling"; Susie Saunders was awarded first prize (an apple) for singing the loudest; and "a good time was had by all."

Seriously, though, the Glee Club (for it was they, augmented, who sponsored the warblings) is to be congratulated on its efforts to raise the standard of singing at V.U.C. A large body or people singing—and in tune—will be a welcome innovation at University functions.


The Glee Club practices will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays. 7—8 p.m., not on Tuesdays and Friday as previously announced.

"All censorships exist to prevent anyone from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently the first condition or progress is the removal of censorship. There is the whole case against censorship In a nutshell.

—Bernard Shaw.
