Thoughts of a Frustrated Student

Thoughts of a Frustrated Student

There is a distressing lack of synchronisation between the College clock and G.M.T. Surely this is carrying our urge for autonomy and Independence a little too far. I am certain that Victoria College would not lose face if the clock just inside our main doorway showed the correct time. In view of possible power cuts, one hesitates to advocate an electric clock but there are obtainable reliable mechanically powered clocks. To defray costs, the present timepiece could be sold to the Dominion museum as a valuable example of ante-delu-vian craftsmanship.

In January 1954, half the lights in the Physics Honours lab gave up the ghost. They are still out of action at time of writing. How would the college authorities react to a requisition for candles?
