The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, Annual Extravaganva July 1923
If you ask the special function
Of our never-ceasing motion,
We reply, without compunction.
That we haven't any notion.
|Lady||Miss M. Morpeth|
|Gentleman||Mr. A. W. Free|
|Singer||Mr. W. Watkins|
|Dancer||Miss M. O'Shea|
|Dance Duo||Mr. W. Watkins & Miss G. Barnsdale|
Sheezastunna, Queen Elizabeth, Nevatite, Tutankhamen and other characters as for preceding acts.
P.J.G.S.: Alas! the general public is very apathetic about letters to the paper. Pearls before swine. You are treading the paths of bitterness already followed by Henry Bodley and Professor Hughie Mac.
P.M.S.: Yes, Jose is an awfully pretty name; but should you say so much about it?
S.F.: We presume this was the same Strephon of whom you wrote: "And though 'tis true in love and war, that men will all things dare,
Their means will surely not be foul, when led by Sergeant Fair"?
F.H.H.: No; it was not fair comment to say of you;
"H. was the next to arise; and he made us a crushing oration,
Crushing, but pointless withal, like a seventy-ton hammer."
We agree that £500 would be hardly any solatium.
