The Spike: or, Victoria College Review June 1902

Euchre Party and Dance

Euchre Party and Dance.

On May 8th the Students' Society held their first social of the session in the form of a euchre party and dance. About 50 students and most of the Professors were present, some of whom displayed most astounding knowledge of the intricate points of the game, such as the advantage, when holding the lead, of a long shuffle before dealing, or of inadvertently dropping the cards. The ladies' prize was eventually won by Miss Griffiths, and the gentlemen's by that sterling player D. Matheson. To the delight of everyone present Professor von Zedlitz won the "booby" prize, but when Professor Maclaurin, who was distributing the prizes, read out his name it was found that he had decamped, and great was the disappointment. A very pleasant dance, at which music, supper, and floor where of the best and most appropriate, brought to an end this brignt little social.
