Cherchez la femme

The approaching holidays will once again present Varsity sports clubs with their old problem—how to maintain all their teams when so many students have dashed to the outer darkness with nostalgic bleats. Probably it will mean defaulting a game or two with some of the lower grade teams, but it is to be hoped that all senior teams will continue without being greatly weakened. Especially is it to be hoped in the ease of the men's hockey senior team, for this team has an excellent chance of winning the local senior championship, an honour which Varsity has missed for many a long year.

The energetic tramping club has arranged a ten-day trip to Arthur's Pass during the holidays. They say the main attraction is to be the ski-ing, which is no doubt true, but it does seem an outlandish way of spelling it. They would appear to have worthy rivals in the harrier club. The more conscientious younger members of the party are to be seen hanging round the staff common room and similar ill-famed dives armed with little notebooks. Apparently they are building up the extensive repertoire of risque jokes and what might be termed "free verse" (especially limericks) so necessary on these expeditions.—A. O.B.
