The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October, 1920
The Luncheon at the Y.M.C.A. Rooms was probably as enjoyable as any of the Reunion functions. The attendance was good; indeed, the room was overcrowded, and the programme was carried out successfully. A true Reunion atmosphere pervaded the scene, an air of brightness and a happy recollection of good old times. Mr. G. G. G. Watson was in the chair. After the toast of "The King" had been drunk, Sir Robert Stout, the Chancellor of the University of New Zealand, proposed "Victoria University College," a toast celebrated with great enthusiasm. Mi Clement Watson replied.
Professor Kirk then proposed "Past Students," and after the singing of "Absent Friends" Professor Robertson replied.
"The Graduates of the Year" was proposed by the chairman. The chorus, "Here Come the Graduates," followed, and Miss Fenton, M.Sc., and Mr. G. W. Morice, B.Sc., replied on behalf of the graduates.
The last toast on the list, "The Professors and Staff, Past and Present," was proposed by the President of the Students' Association, Mr. Mansfield, and replied to by Professor Sommerville. The singing of "Just One Stave More" concluded a bright and successful luncheon.
