Soccer Draw

Soccer Draw

About the beginning of this term our Club was asked to provide six men to take tickets on the door at the "Ball." We agreed. To as it seemed quite an honour to be "Ticket Takers" at Tournament Ball and besides we were only too glad to do our bit.

But—too late to repair the evil. We discover that a horrible mistake has been made. It appears that we were not meant to officiate at the Grand Ball at all, but merely to be the doormen at a lesser function—the Winter Sports' Ball. Not that we regarded this as beneath the dignity of the Soccer Club. The difficulty was that we didn't receive any notice that the Ball was on till the Monday after it was over.

Imagine our chagrin! To be denied the privilege of shaking hands with Sir Thomas at the one function of the year when our toil-worn "blues" have the opportunity, is hard to bear. But even worse is in store. For as if to add insult to injury—the Blues' certificates were posted to our secretary a week later with sixpence short in postage.

Last Saturday's draw with the leaders of the competition. Tech. O.B., 4-4, has meanwhile provided us with compensation of a different order.
