The Spike: or, Victoria College Review September 1921
Past Students' Rolls
Past Students' Rolls.
Sir,—I read with interest the notes on the Business Manager 's Page of your last issue, and I think that I speak for all past students of Victoria College when I say that we would like nothing better than that "The Spike" should keep us in touch not only with Alma Mater but also with one another. With this end in view I venture to make the following suggestions:—
|1.||That a roll of past students be prepared, in the form of card index. This would serve a score of purposes which I need not specify here, and would be of very great assistance to your editorial self. So important is such a list that the College Council might well undertake the financial side of its preparation.|
|2.||That such matters as the number of students at College, and their distribution among different faculties; the numbers attending lectures in each subject; College finance and the policy of the Council towards future expansion; and any other matters which may affect the prosperity and greatness of Victoria College be fully recorded in "The Spike."|
|3.||That a full record be given in each "Spike" of papers or books published by students or teachers, past or present, and that past students be circularised asking them to contribute literary articles, reviews, and poetry.|
|4.||That a past student be appointed to your editorial staff to take from your shoulders the weight of such of these suggestions as may be thought orthy of putting into practice.—I am, etc|

[We regret that time would not permit our carrying out any of the above ideas this issue. We pass them on for the favourable consideration of the Students' Association and our successors —Ed.]
