Obituary — Pixie Higgin


Pixie Higgin

The death of a student these days has become an occurrence so frequent that we are inclined to forget that it may mean an irreparable gap in the College life. Many of the finest men have left us and it is all the more-tragic that Patricia (Pixie) Higgin should have died at this moment.

For all those who knew her personally her loss will leave a sear that will never heal. She was the only woman student ever president of the Students' Association. In her term of office she showed administrative ability that impressed all those who worked with her. To her lot fell the organisation of Tournament in Wellington, and later in the Cafeteria re-organisation and as business manager of "Spike" she had an opportunity to show that clear and energetic action is not a prerogative of men, and whenever she was working her feminine charm made her first among all.

Pixie's work will not be lost if the men and women of Victoria will take that inspiration from her life (hat she gave her friends. This will be the best expression of sympathy that we can give Pixie's parents and relatives.
