The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910


The most noteworthy event in the annals of the Club since the last issue has been the inauguration of an Inter-Faculty Contest. This was the result of a very interesting discussion at the last annual general meeting, when the new committee was recommended to institute such a contest. The object of such a contest was to instil into the minds of the men an interest in athletics, and this has been accomplished. In spite of the fact that last year we were unable to hold a sports meeting, owing to the lack of interest on the part of our budding athletes, this year the meeting was a success from every point of view. The Inter-Faculty Contest resulted in Arts and Science beating law by 43 points to 34 points. The ladies had promised a banner for this contest, but the secretary is still anxiously awaiting its appearance. Lady readers please note!

On the day of the meeting the weather was all that could be desired, and the attendance of students and their friends was very gratifying. In spite of the fact that many of the competitors were under-trained, the racing was, on the whole, distinctly good. One feature of the meeting was the success of a number of freshmen who should find places in the tournament team next year.
