The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1924

Au Revoir (We Hope)

Au Revoir (We Hope).

The best and brightest continue to leave us. We drop a tear of blessing on the heads of Miss Hilda G. Heine, M.A., Mr. Gordon Troup, M.A., and Mr. J. G. Myers, M.Sc. We pass no superfluous encomiums, for among friends such are not needed. We gaze with admiration, envy, something of awe, on the departing ones; good students and true, we hope to gaze upon their faces many times again before the night descends. Miss Heine goes, via London, to Berlin, to study economics at the fountain-head. Gordon Troup is on his way to Poitiers with the French Travelling Scholarship for a two years' post-graduate course. He is to represent New Zealand at the biennial meetings of the General Committee of the World's Student Christian Federation at High Leigh in England early in August, and will attend one of the British Student Christian Movement Summer Conferences at Swanwick. Mr. Myers goes to Harvard with the 1851 Exhibition Science Research Scholarship.
