The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October, 1920
The Tournament Ball was celebrated with great formality in the Town Hall. An inartistic and inappropriate decoration scheme was provided by Scoular Bros.; they also added a few easy chairs for the extremely reasonable sum total of £80. The floor was in good condition, the music was provocative, yet somehow the evening dragged in spite of this. Nor did the dainty and well served supper remove this feeling of "something wanting." Finally it dawned upon the forlorn student that it was the small percentage of V.C. people among the dancers that gave him that feeling of incompleteness. The function lacked the brightness and zest that used to characterise V.C. dances. Let us hope that the visiting teams did not feel that we were lacking in hospitality.
