"Laborare Est Orare"

"Laborare Est Orare"

The sudden waning of enthusiasm among University trampers at the prospect of a working party did not deter five of the more condescending from wading through the five-mile to Tawhai, having first mortified the flesh among the gorse-bushes of Gollan's Valley.

An exciting evening was spent in clashing through the undergrowth in' search of a number of thoroughly bushed women whose shrill cries, arising from somewhere in the Turere, disturbed the still night air. Despite these privations and the effort of our labour, we nevertheless returned in good humour to Muritai on Sunday, thanks to the stimulating effect of Lewis Carroll and Omar Khayyam.
