The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, October 1908
"Music, when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory."
Some few weeks back, among the many notices adorning the board, might have been seen one setting forth that on a certain evening a Special General Meeting would consider the prospects of the above club. The near approach of exams and a general lack of enthusiasm had wrought such havoc in the ranks that drastic measures such as closing down for a season had even been suggested. However, the arrival of the fateful evening brought so many of the "casual" members to the meeting, curious to see what would happen, that their presence was taken as a pledge to stand by the sinking ship, and it was decided to continue practices as before. If the fates are propitious, we may even expect a concert before the end of the year, and certain signs are not wanting to indicate that the trips to Porirua and Mount View will be undertaken as usual, though whether for the edification of the audiences or the performers we are not prepared to state.
