Clashing Fixtures

Clashing Fixtures.

Dear "Smad,"—

I wish to bring to your notice an ! to that of your rentiers a matter concerning the Clubs of Victoria College. It is a thing which should be rectified and could he quite easily if the various secretaries would only co-operate. Too many times this year the notice board has disclosed the unwelcome fact that two or more clubs would be meeting on the same evening. To give two particular cases: Quite recently the Fret Discussions Club put up a notice about six days in advance that there would be a meeting of that club on a certain Thursday. Two days later the Literary Society advertise a meeting on the same date. On the evening of Thursday, August 10th, two clubs again clashed, the Discussions and the Dramat[gap — reason: illegible]. On this occasion there was an excuse: both may have wished to hold their meetings before the vacation. The science societies, coming earlier in the week, seldom cause any trouble.

Secretaries of the clubs concerned would do well to consider before putting their notices up whether the evening decided upon is free or not; otherwise they are merely cutting their own throats. Each of the clubs has its small band of stalwarts who rally round, no matter what other attractions there are. But these are only a handful of people, and the excellent meetings I have attended are worthy of more than that.

Then there are other people, like myself, who wish to support several clubs, and are again and again faced on the same evening with two or more meetings of equal attractiveness. It is most annoying to have to miss any one of them.
