Breeding Ground ?

Breeding Ground ?

The role of self-appointed moral critic is seldom a happy one, especially in fields that are, to a certain extent, matters of taste. Nevertheless, I wonder if I am alone in thinking that the sexual element in the last Procession was considerably overdone.

There are many persons who think that certain natural functions are not funny in themselves, and that such an emphasis on them reveals a lack of wit and genuine creative talent.

A few years ago this University was considered, rightly or wrongly, to be a hotbed of Communism. If in our "public appearances" such lavatory-humour continues to predominate, it will not be surprising if Victoria be thought a breeding-ground for libertines.
