Tennis Notes

Sketch of people playing tennis

As the the hockey season is over and summer approaching, it is expected that the Tennis Club will renew its youth. Three years ago, even on wet Saturdays, a band of enthusiasts would gather on the courts, and the players existed through the week that they might live on Saturday. This is to be the characteristic of the coming season. The committee will be glad to hear of new members. The proti acted Sealed Handicap Tournament will be finished, and a "Challenge Ladder"postecl. The great event of the tennis year will be the Easter Tournament, and it is hoped that Victoria College will be able to send a stronger team to Auckland next year than it did to Christchurch this year. As this can only be done by assiduous practice, it is hoped that every effort will be made by each membeii to' raise the standard of play.

Students are reminded that balls can now be obtained at 2s 6d per pair from T. J. Thompson, ironmonger, 60 Cuba street, on an order from the secretary.

It is with regret that we record the departure from Wellington of Mr D. K Logan, who from the very first session of our College has done as much as any student amongst us to make our social institutions and university life the success and the pleasure that they undoubtedly are. Throughout his career loss has been, and will be, most deeply felt by all who have at Victoria College, whatever function or public office he under-worked with him and profited by his co-operation. We wish ally, in his new surroundings, and we comfort ourselves with took he performed the duties appertaining to it ably, and his him, however, every success, socially, professionally and athletic the thought that our loss is surely Masterton's gain.
