Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 27, No. 8. 1964.

It Went That-a-way

It Went That-a-way

People gushed into The lift on the sixth floor of Easterfield one day last term. It hit the bottom of the lift well with a thump.

Silence, cheering and hysterical squeaks greeted this development. Beating on the door followed, requesting advice and demanding action from without. Nothing but gales of laughter were forthcoming, so the inmates settled down to serious thought.

A gentleman with some experience told of a lever in some highly inaccessible comer. A hero leapt to action and the laughing and or hysterical imprisoned emerged.

The lifts remained, sunk beneath the floor.

Moral—These lifts are designed for a maximum of 20 people, not 40.
