The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

Editors' Honour List

Editors' Honour List

The lawless character of the "Spike" to-day is given a sharp twist towards respectability by the distinctions which a discerning Government has, since last issue, conferred upon three former editors. Mr. Justice Ostler was the first editor of this Journal. Mr. Arthur Fair, K.C., Solicitor-General, edited it in 1910, and Mr. C. H. Taylor, Crown Solicitor, Wellington, in 1911. The latter two gentlemen, and particularly Mr. Fair (we place a special emphasis on that word "particularly") have kept in active touch with their Alma Mater, and his Honour was prevented from doing so only by the fact of his residence in another city. To these honoured ex-students, who performed their full share in the building of our traditions, we offer our heartiest congratulations. We more than rejoice with them in their successes; we unashamedly gloat over them, and take fresh heart of grace in the matter of our own irresponsibility.
