The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910
"And does Skinner eat his dinner in the Library."
With regret we announce the approaching departure of H. D. Skinner and John Pope, who have both taken up positions oil the teaching staff of Nelson College. Karori, it is rumoured, is inconsolable.
"Too bright, too beautiful, to last."
During the vacation Mr. and Miss Barkas left Wellington to take up their residence in Timaru. In their departure the College sustains a real and regrettable loss, for page 53 they were both among those, alas! too few, who have taken a keen and active delight in every side of College life. We were pleased to see them both among the supporters of Victoria College at the Easter tournament. We sincerely hope that Fate may direct their footsteps to Wellington again. May they live long and prosper!
