The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, September, 1922

Mathematical and Physical Society

Mathematical and Physical Society.

Three meetings of the Society have been held this year and we would take this opportunity of thanking again those who have given papers.

At the first meeting Mr. Brodie. a former member of the Society and its first President, gave an interesting paper on"Carburetters."illustrated by a number of lantern slides. Professor Sommerville addressed the second meeting on "Relativity,"and his paper was much appreciated and discussed outside, though the audience was rather overcome with the mathematics at the meeting. At the third meeting Mr. Wright gave a paper on "Electric Power-plants," to a small but interested audience. We advise Mr. Wright not to be depressed by the meagre attendance. We believe Einstein had the same experience lately—such is greatness!

Several more meetings are to be held this term, and students are invited to attend and give their opinions, and take part in all the discussions on points which arise from the papers.
