The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, October 1909

Au Reuoir

Au Reuoir.

On Capping Day there departed from Wellington W. H. Wilson, B.A., LL.M., of ours (better known as "Spike"). He was one of the older generations of students who have done much for the welfare of the College and whose labour has been its own reward. We are pleased to have the opportunity of putting on record our appreciation of what "Spike" Wilson has done for Victoria College. As Editor of the Spike in 1905 and 1906 and Vice-President of the Students' Association in 1906 and 1907, his influence was all for the good; a broad-mined student, a deep thinker and a hard and conscientious worker of the type of which Victoria College needs more to-day. W. H. Wilson is a pleasing example of a type of student unfortunately too rare, the student whose degree course serves but to stimulate his interest in his studies and who rightly regards his studies as little more than begun when his degree is completed. He is at present in Auckland in the office of Mr. F. E. Baume, K. C. May he enjoy his years.

Another of the older body of students—Arch. Tudhope, LL. B., has also left Wellington; Tudhope has commenced practice in Tauranga. His record at College deserves a mead of praise and thanks. For three years he served on the Debating Society committee; he was one of the members of the first Victoria College Football team, in 1903, and was a member of the Football Club Committee for two years. At the Tournaments of 1904, '1905 and '1906 he was one of our Athletic representatives. He was also an active member of the Tennis Club, playing for College in the inter-Club competitions. He is indeed one of those to whom Victoria College owes much and to him too we extend our thanks. May he too enjoy his years.
