The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, October 1918
"For even at this day,
Though its sting has passed away,
When I venture to remember it, I quail."
Following on the successful Evening Sport Meeting of last term it was proposed that a similar gathering should be held between the football and cricket seasons. After further consideration it was reluctantly decided to let the matter drop, party on account of the heaviness of the tracks at the present time and partly on account of the close proximity of the Degree Examinations.
However, there is very prospect of the annual Inter-University Easter Tournament being re-established next year, of which athletics are, of course, the main attraction.
It will therefore be necessary to hold a meeting as early in the new year as possible, so that the representatives of this College many be selected. In any case the customary evening meeting will take place, even if it found impracticable to hold the events for the New Zealand Shield.
