The Professors' Dance

All who were there will long remember the dance so kindly given by the Professors on the evening of Capping Day. After the excitement of the afternoon everyone was in the mood for further enjoyment, and the dance formed a suitable ending to the day's pleasure. The Central Hall, which was given up to the dancers, looked quite gay while the platform had been cosily furnished. For those who did not care to dance ping-pong tables had been provided in the Latin room above, and one could hardly recognise in the ardent players the tired overworked the self same room. Music, supper, in fact everything, showed enjoyment, and it was very reluctantly indeed that at last we separated; but all agreeing that it was the most enjoyable dance ever held in connection with the College.

The Hockey and Tennis Clubs' Dance.

The second annual dance of the Hockey and Tennis Clubs' held in the Sydney Street Schoolroom on 21st July, the last day of the short vacation, proved a most enjoyable opening to the trials and worries of the second term. An energetic ladies committee had worked hard in the preparation and arrangement of the supper, and the admiration expressed by all at the result, showed our appreciation of their efforts. The hall itself had page 21 been tastefully decorated with gay coloured flags, and the stage daintily fitted up. The anterooms were cool and inviting, and afforded a pleasant retreat between the dances, while good music and a perfect floor added to the evening's pleasure. In connection with this enjoyable dance great credit is due to the energetic secretary, Mr. G. F. Dixon, for his untiring efforts in contributing to the success of the dance and the enjoyment of all present.
