The Spike or Victoria College Review 1947
The club got into its proper stride during the past year. Speakers at regular fortnightly meetings included Mr B. Skilton on Trade Unionism in New Zealand, Mr A. Vogt on the United Nations Organisation, and Mr A. H. Scotney who spoke on 'How right was the Left?' This latter address found such universal appeal that it is intended for publication in pamphlet form. This will undoubtedly serve as a useful contribution to the mooted University Press. The Club has gained considerably in popularity and support. The average attendance at Meetings this year was 80.
Our experiment in holding lunch-hour meetings for the benefit of full-time students proved a considerable success. The first such meeting, when Mr James Bertram spoke on 'Civil War in China,' revealed that full-timers, when locked out of the library, are capable of taking a deep interest in world events.
