The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1917
The Editor's Uneasy Chair. — Correspondence
The Editor's Uneasy Chair.
The Editorial committee has decided not to publish any of the correspondence consequent upon the controversy which arose over a sonnet and an editorial in the last year's issues. The subject has already been sufficiently aired, and as the editor concerned is now at the front and unable to answer the peculiar accusation brought against him, we consider it advisable to let the whole matter drop.

We wish to thank present day students for the splendid answer which they have made to our appeal for contributions. We have more than we can use for this issue, so some of them will have to appear in the October number. Several contributions sent in are page 47 decidedly below the standard of the "Spike," but even so it is gratifying to us to feel the awakening of interest in things literary, which every contributor evinces. We feel constrained, however, to remark on the utter lack of method and style found in many of the Club Report. We want neither confidential little letters chatting about the doings of a certain club, nor long and bellicose manifestos. What we do want are short, yet comprehensive reports, correctly spelt and legibly written.
