On the grapevine

On the grapevine

Drinking with GE

So If We're good little students big daddy GE might treat us to another GELP. Though by this time you'd think we'd be running out of halls.

Wouldn't it be exciting to see another display of James Bond efficiency—you know, the farce of walkie-talkie radios that don't even work. But they say they are goody for cowboys and injuns.

Toro has a banana

It Was bound to happen. Toro's gone into the drug business. At the moment he's drying out some banana skins. Just ram them in a cool pipe and man, it really sends you, well, so he says.

If You Want a way-out view these days just read Mary Seddon's film reviews. They're way way out.

What Did we do to deserve another Miss Victoria con test? It's no wonder that nine out of 10 woman-haters are women.

Still it docs serve as a cryptic commentary on the standards of Kiwi architec ture.

The sport of Kings or students

"Keep Fit For Women" exhorts our weekly newssheet. It's just about the only thing that four-fifths of the student population feel is worth keeping fit for.
