Weir Serenades Pubs — And Sells Cappicades

Weir Serenades Pubs

And Sells Cappicades

With the characteristic enthusiasm which so endears them to the other members of the University, Weir House have made wild whoopee with Gargantuan gusto.

Pubs have been subjected to ase-inspiring hakas. Led by the inimitable Mr. McGlynn, countless Cappicades have been sold. A few citizens have been shocked-thousands more, mildly amused.

"We are going to haka in the pubs," said Mr. McGlynn, in his quaint, Anglo-Irish accent; "and sell Cappicades."

"I have sold five," I said with simple pride."

"I have sold seventy-five," said Mr. McGlynn impressively.

"Anyway, are you with us?"

O Smad," I cried, "Greater love hat no man ..." And went.

We visited in quick succession-take a deep breath-the Royal Oak, Duke of Edinburgh, Regent, Empire, Carlton, St. George, Britannia, Grand, Barrett's and New Commercial.

The Empire gave us free drinks -Weir House will not forget.

Free supper at the Ritz-mainly, I think, to quieten us. A haka over the air at 2YA.

"The backbone of the University has consolidated its position," said Mr. McGlynn.

But I had passed out.
