The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1913

(To the Editor.)

(To the Editor.)

Dear Sir.—At Easter I happened to be in Wellington, and of course paid a visit to Victoria College and renewed my old acquaintance with the Gym. I found little change in either place, but one change which I had expected to find I looked for in vain. I should like to know, Sir, why there are on the walls no photographs of the First XV. since 1910, the Cricket Eleven since 1908-9, and the Hockey Eleven since 1908.

To the ex-student revisiting the scenes of his youth there is nothing more pleasant than the renewal of old memories, friendships, and acquaintances, per media of such College groups. At one time each club used to present a copy of the photograph of its representatives to the Students' Association, and surely the clubs in question are not so poverty-stricken as to be unable to continue this eminently praiseworthy practice. Should this be the actual case, however, it seems to me to be "up to" the Students Association to go to some little expense in the matter rather than leave the walls of the Gym. in their present bare and unadorned condition.—Yours, etc.,

Old Boy.
