Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 14. 1967.

Oh Woe!

Oh Woe!

Sirs,—Once again the petty tyrant has struck! This time it was him personally who, casually joking in his customary manner, tore down from the romanesque pillars of our most revered eatinghouse, the sage election axiom of his present charlady Miss Helen Paske.

Oh Woe! what has become of our friendly Student Union, where caretakers are obliged to consult with their overlord before answering the simple bidding of the humble employers.

Oh Woe! When the shrill twittering of fluted pipes to the tune of "crescus bananus" must be stilled for the mandane shatter of dentures in half-eaten plates. After the rising of how few more moons shall we even be unable venture a-tip-toe into the sacred precincts of the Mighty, for fear to waken his mid-morn nap. We have risen before. We shall rise again! For shame! How will the Mighty fall!

John S. Hales.
