What the C.U. Does.
About fifty "Wikkatorians" went up to Marton at Christmas for the annual Conference of the N.Z. Student Movement. The weather was good, the natives hospitable, lively spirits were not lacking, and the serious business had due time and attention. The mornings and the evenings were given up to study, addresses, discussion and devotions; in the afternoon all hands made merry. Moods shifted "from grave to gay" in happy alternation. The principal speakers were Rev. R. H. Hobday, M.A., Rev. A. B. Chappell, M.A., Miss I. Macdonald, M.A., the Bishop or Wellington, Rev. E. P. Blamires, Miss C. Cruickshank, M.A., M. Sc., Miss D. Gavan, M.A., and Capt. W. H. Pettit. Dr. Pettit also acted as Chairman for the Conference meetings.page 41
During the long vacation a series of discussions were arranged on "Issues of the War." These were well attended, and roused a good deal of interest. Particulars of the studies are given below.
