The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1906
The professors doubtless know that they are appreciated by the students; but to show this appreciation in a more concrete form, a social was tendered them at the Girls' College (then only High School) after the degree examinations of last year. A sense of deep relief was everywhere noticeable. Those who thought they had "not done too bad" in the exams, were easily distinguishable by the smug smile of condescension decorating their features. Even the "certain failures" threw dull care to the winds, and rejoiced with the rest. The musical talent was well represented by Miss Isaacs, Messrs. Wilson, Jacobs, and Willis. "Clumps," as expounded by W. Gillanders, is a new game possessing many latent merits. One student, whose hearing is somewhat affected, understood the name of the game to be "Chumps," and at once proposed the versatile William for the position of Chump-in-Chief.
Professor and student mingled together in pleasant conversation, and the stiffness of the lecture room was thrown aside.
After supper dancing was proceeded with, and lasted till midnight.
It was not without a pang of regret that we heard the old doors bang-to behind us for the last time.
