The Spike or Victoria College Review, October 1903



"There was a time when the words "courtship" and "courtesy" were synonymous."
* * * *
"What object is at the same time the irresistible magnet that attracts every man; the most precious jewel he can possess; the hardest thing he can imagine?"

President, Debating Society

It is our pleasing duty in this number to convey to Professor Von Zedlitz the congratulations of the students of Victoria College. We do not deny that we had hopes that the honour would descend upon a student, but we still have our first hope. Professor Maclaurin shows no nervous excitement when the Hutt train whistles; has the same enthusiasm for elementary mathematics as of yore, and can last a lecture out as well as any of us; he is not driven to the Lower Hutt to watch the Second Fifteen play Football: he does not disclaim knowledge of "friendly greetings" in Presidential lectures. We wish Professor Von Zedlitz and Miss Fitzherbert every happiness.
