The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, September 1926

A Non-Crossword Puzzle

A Non-Crossword Puzzle

One of our past student contributors obviously has exalted ideas of the intelligence of the 1926 editorial staff. He writes: "I enclose a contribution for the Jubilee 'Spike' It suggests a problem: What is the correct course for an Editor, receiving a contribution from an ex-Editor, written at the Editor's request, which, if the ex-Editor had been Editor, the ex-Editor-Editor would have edited to the limbo of the forgotten?" We had braced ourselves for the task, and were about to draw down our encyclopaedia and logarithm tables when we noticed his next ungenerous remark: "No prize is offered (by me) for the correct solution." Needless to say, the problem did not engage our attention further.
