The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1912
[Review of the activities of the Glee club]
"It was jerky, spasmodic and harsh, I'm aware,
But still it distinctly resembled an air,"
To all appearances, the Glee Club isentering upon a most successful year. The membership—which was limited in numbers a few years ago—has reached that limit, and the finances are on a most satisfactory basis.
During the second term of last year the Club's concert was held, and was an unqualified success, both artistically and financially.
In November the Club paid its annual visit to the Porirua Mental Hospital. A concert was also given at the Missions to Seamen Institute.
This year, as usual, there is a scarcity of tenors, but we hope that the want will soon be supplied. Once more Mis Clachan has kindly taken up the arduous duties of pianiste, Under the conductorship of Mr. Stainton, we are looking forward to great things being done.
