The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1911

E Profundis

E Profundis.

University Reform.—We have it on good authority that the Chancellor. When he saw the Reform pamphlet, said he would see the Reformers d—d before he should have what he himself had advocated in 1884; cursed them. moreover, by his gods. It would seem form the news item we quote below that the curse is taking effect, and that the leaders of the Reform Association are spending these early spring days in a sultry place:—

"L.—The Education Committee meets her this month (September) to take the evidence of the University Reform Association."

It was in these regions that Orpheus south lost Eurydice. The result of that quest is summed up in the following beautiful lines by the poet Smith:—

"The fair Eurydice this fate befel,

He looked behind: she was drawn back to L."

But absit omen. The reformers will come forth triumphant with their Eurydice.
