The Spike or Victoria College Review October 1929

Dear Spike,

I wish to register a protest against the manner in which Students' Association meetings are conducted. I have attended all but one of the meetings of the Students' Association held this year, and without exception they have degenerated into gatherings almost as rowdy and disorderly as the present session of Parliament. (In case anyone should gain the wrong impression I may say that the meeting I did not attend was just as rowdy as the others.)

Now, Sir, surely there can be found in the College someone capable of controlling a meeting. I am referring now to the case at the last meeting when the chairman was absent, and the secretary took the chair.

My suggestion is that at each meeting the chairman be elected by the members present. Possibly the meetings may then be something other than a farce.

—I am, etc.,

H. J. Bishop.
