The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1915

Women's Debating Society

Women's Debating Society.

The Annual General Meeting was held on Friday, April 23rd. Though the attendance was not large, several new members were present.

Two ordinary meetings have been held. The first on Tuesday, May 11th, in the Common Room, when Miss Neumann moved and Miss Jamieson seconded: "That Vegetarianism is Beneficial." Miss Richmond, seconded by Miss McKenzie opposed.

The second meeting was held on Thursday, May 20th. The subject for debate was: "That Smoking is Objectionable." Miss Ziman, seconded by Miss Stephens moved, and Miss Neumann, seconded by Miss Taylor opposed. Much amusement, if not profit, was derived from the discussion.

We have to thank Miss N. Coad and Mr. Caddick, who acted as judges, and gave helpful criticism at these meetings.

The attendance at these meetings has so far not come up to expectations, and we hope that new students will take greater interest in the attractive and interesting syllabus for this year.
