Combined Hockey, Tennis and Football Dance

Combined Hockey, Tennis and Football Dance.

"Forthwith from dance to sweet repast they turn."


This dance was this year, as usual, held in the Sydney Street Schoolroom, which was well filled. It proved as great a success as always, except that there was a slight majority of ladies, who constituted a garden throughout the evening. The hall was decorated with wattle, very kindly supplied by Professor von Zeditz from his extensive garden at the Hutt, and with the ubiquitously disfiguring photographs of the various teams. A novel feature was presented in the programmes which had been printed in England. There, as well as the supper, were a source of great admiration to all.

R. St. J. Beere made an efficient M.C. G.S. Prouse, though not on the committee, at the head of a band of workers which made up for its smallness by its activity, spared neither toil nor trouble in preparations, and to him a great measure of praise is due. The invitations were issued by the committee.
