Quick Turns—No Recalls

Quick Turns—No Recalls.

Rather Suspicious.

We hear from reliable authority that the Social Service parties can be quite bright. It is worthy of note that all the places visited require long motor rides. Do the Club members combine business with pleasure ?

Rimes Modernised.

Young Jack Horner sat in the corner
Having one quick on the sly,
He pulled out a flask and filled up a glass
And said "What a shrewd boy am I."

Gone Are the Days.

Last term, on entering the Men's Common Room at night, one would be greeted with the sight of three or four tables of bridge going all out. Now, those carefree students have evidently begun to feel the qualms of conscience tor the Common Room is now usually almost deserted, whilst the library is like the Town Hall when a wrestling match is on—packed to the doors.

An Idea for Weir.

Rolleston House He-men at Canterbury College have followed the example of "Whiskers" Blake and gone in for some facial adornment. A Beard-Growers' Club has been formed, and a membership fee of 2s. 6d. levied. Out of this money, prizes will be given for the biggest, brightest coloured, and most original beards. Perhaps we may yet see inter-University Competition between bewhiskered representatives of the Colleges. And what a competition it would be!

Specious Glamour.

At the Dinner held by the Third A Football Team at Barrett's Hotel, recently, a good-natured reveller endowed the members of the successful 'Varsity lower grade side with undeserved fame. Mistaking them for the Otago Rugby side which had that day put up such a splendid performance against the local fifteen, he congratulated the thirds on "their splendid game." Special recipients of his praise were "Taylor," who received the applause modestly, and "McSkimming," who had retired hurt, much to the reveller's disgust, this part being played by Alan Wilton, who had unfortunately been injured the week before and unluckily looked the part.

College Culbertsons at it Again.

Perhaps our par above about bridge being cast aside in the flurry of the last long sprint for exam, honours is a little premature. We notice that a bridge tourney is occupying the time of some of our College Bridge stars, who flatter themselves that they can play a mean slam.
