The Spike or Victoria College Review June 1914
During the first term this Society remained quiescent. The annual general meeting was held at the commencement of the first term, and was fairly representative. Owing to the shortness of the term, and to the stress of Capping preparations, no further meetings were held. What might have been audience for a debate, was generally found at Dorcas meetings on the top floor.
The Society began its ordinary meetings by a very successful evening on June 12th. The programme was one of impromptu speeches. Each speaker was allowed three minutes. Miss Watson, President of the Society, was judge. Nine members spoke, Miss Edwards being awarded first place.
We would take this opportunity of reminding all women students that this Society is going to be very much in existence this year. It should play a very active part in the life of the College. It is the Society in which women students of this College can best cultivate the formation of individual opinion, and forceful, eloquent expression of such.
A very attractive syllabus has been arranged for this year, but is intended in no wise to detract from attention to the syllabus of the main Society. One of the aims of our branch is to fit women speakers to come forward and speak in debates held on Saturday night.
