Maths and Physics' Dinner

Maths and Physics' Dinner

The Maths and Physics Society held their duo devigintal yearly dinner the other night at the Mockador.

The soup (we are at dinner now!) was a bit chilly, and Rickie said the fish reminded him of tepid filleted minute whitebait—but everything else was abundant and enjoyable.

The point of the whole affair is that it was so eminently respectable—there being a regrettable lack of bread rolls, bawdiness and beer.

Dinner over, the president staggered to his feet clutching his gastronomia and attempted to make a speech. He got thoroughly mixed with professors and night clubs. His bribed interjectors made his speech much better than it might have been otherwise.

Professor Miles gurgled about the friendly spirit of the Club during the past eighteen years.

The Dance.

A bronchial amplifier, aided by Bang Crosby and Dick Hutchens, dripped out some music, Professors came along hopefully without their wives, waved hands. Propped up places and acted as chaperones.

The dance was really quite enjoyable—went round and round.
