The Spike or Victoria University College Review, June 1927
To the Editor.
I should like to ascertain the exact position with regard to the extra ten and sixpenny levy about which there have been sundry notices scattered around. The payment of the first ten and sixpence is compulsory unless special exemption is granted by the Professorial Board. What are the privileges obtained by payment of this sum? One formerly was admitted to all affiliated page 31 college clubs upon written application. Now we are told that the first levy only permits us the privilege of applying for admission; we are not members of any club until the second levy has been paid. I have not come into contact with anyone who has paid the second levy, though doubtless the college contains a few honest souls who have done so. Such a system appears to be very unsatisfactory and I should be very grateful if anyone will tell me that the above statements are hopelessly incorrect, and will set out the whole situation clearly for many puzzled students.
Yours faithfully, M.L.
