V.U.C. Social Service Club

1931 is proving about the busiest year yet for our club. The Christmas holidays brought, of course, a slight interruption in some of our activities. But they brought also our most welcome functions, the Xmas parties at the various Homes. And by the time 'Varsity was open for the new year our work was in full swing again.

You will find our work so enjoyable that you will never regret having joined us. Mr. R. L. Page, or any member will take your name.
