The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1924
On this Saturday night was held what we are credibly informed was the greatest and most completely successful concert ever held in the Gym., or, for that matter, in Wellington (some include New Zealand). This was entirely an old-timers' affair, as accommodation was limited, and the rest of the world was supposed to be weltering in blood at the Tournament boxing finals at the Town Hall. The old songs were sung by the same old people, the old friendships were renewed with the old shake of the hand; the old jests were heard from the old jesters, and the old laughter from the old victims. To the Concert succeeded dancing. Altogether a splendid, noteworthy, and indubitably excellent affair.
