The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, October 1908
"Nothing is so hard to do as to do nothing."
During the month of August, in the year 1908, turfing and tree planting operations were commenced in the College grounds. The first decision to spend money in improving the grounds was only arrived at by the Council some thirteen months ago. As the evident intention at present is to produce a piebald effect on the banks, it seems a good suggestion that the Council should introduce a reasonable amount of green and gold colouring into the design.
