The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910

[review of the boxing club]

"You have hit the mark."

—King Henry VIII.

During this term a Club has been formed for the purpose of fostering the noble art at Victoria College, and gives promise of being a great success. From the number and enthusiasm of the devotees of the art who have already joined the Club. it is surprising that it had not been formed long before.

The Club has the use of the gymnasium on Monday and Friday nights, and on Friday nights the Club's instructor (Mr. T. Tracy) dispenses valuable advice to members, who have shown themselves eager to obtain the advantage of his assistance.

Owing to the prevailing financial stringency, the Club has been unable to obtain a supply of gloves adequate to its needs, but it is hoped that by the end of the present term members will have nothing to complain of in this respect. The prospects of the Club are bright, the enthusiasm of members being a very healthy symptom. This is a Club to which every male student should belong. At no other sport can so much healthy exercise be obtained in a limited space of time as at boxing, to say nothing of its usefulness and its value from a moral point of view.
