There was no smile on the face of the Taiga.

A prominent member of the Socialist Club. Hector McNeil, was given a farewell party. He is leaving for England soon.

Watch out. England. You're being got at.

High Endeavour

When students leave the cable car one fine bright morning they will see, if they look on the left-hand side of the library gable, a white V (very faded now). In 1939 two University students volunteered to serve overseas The night before they left V.U.C. they left this token on V.U.C.'s roof. Nobody knows how they did it, either.

Cable Car Brando

And speaking of painting endeavors, one night last year during the August vac. three students snuk up to the cable car at the top and painted Desire on the front and bark with white paint. But, much to their woe, it disappeared at 8.30 next morn.

In the past few weeks there has been plenty of scope for the chronic party-goer. Highlights have been the Drama Club party for Anne Flannery, who has now left for England on a Government Drama Bursary. The evening given by Diana. GI.II. and Pat Lescher for three Canadian students (Ernest Laidlaw, Hugh Marshall and Dick Armitage). Con Bollinger's bash, and the carousal which marked Bob Brockie's coming-of-age. All deserved high ratings on the social success scale.

Allaway Dixon's having a birthday this weekend. So the Tramping Club are going up into the Tararua Hills to celebrate. For dinner wood pigeons will be roasting and in the evening wood pigeons will be roosting.
