Shock Therapy?

Shock Therapy?

Sir,—While guiding parties of dear old ladies around our new Student Union Building during the recent Open House week, I was asked by a graduate of about 1912, "... and what is this little room used for?"

The entire party swept into the room, as I explained that this was at present unfurnished but was going to be used as a—gulp—Committee Room ... the words faded away. You see, Sir, we were confronted by the spectacle of a carton of empty gin bottles, six cartons of empty beer bottles, a broken chair and a lavatory seat. I realise that this is a fitting memorial to that "swinish orgy" (the Graduands' Supper), but must it remain there permanently? Please, Sir, could the House Committee, do something!!!

Yours sincerely,

Barbara Gibson.
