The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, October 1918

Women's Club

Women's Club

"Although I'm quite a ladybird
They take me for a lark."

—Capping Song.

It has long been felt that there is need for a closer esprit de corps among women students; and as a result a meeting convened in the Gymnasium on August 5th, decided to form a Women's Club, to encourage keener college spirit and to further the social life among the women students—more especially to make it possible for present students to meet the professors' wives and the past women students of V.U.C.

There are to be at least three meetings each session—the first meeting in the year to be held as soon as possible after the opening of the College. page 62 Thus freshers will be given an opportunity of becoming acquainted with students of their own year and of previous years.

At each evening a committee of hostesses is to be elected to run the next evening—one of the hostesses being a member of the committee. Thus it will be possible for all to take an active part in the affairs of the Club. The first evening to take place on Friday, September 13th, will be run by the committee.

The election of officers resulted as follows;

Patrons—The professors' wives.

President—E. R. Davies.

Vice-President—D. B. Maclean.

Representatives of Ex-women Students—Mrs. A. H. Bogle.

Secretary and Treasurer—E. Smith.

Committee—A. Harle, N. Norman, H. Esterfield.

The membership at present stands at well over a hundred.

The Club made its first appearance at a dance given for it by the Haeremai Club. It was exceedingly kind of the men to extend such a hearty welcome to the new Club, the members of which all thoroughly appreciated the most enjoyable dance.
