What Smad Hears

What Smad Hears

We congratulate Professor Cornish on his appointment to the position of Solicitor-General; we all regret that we are losing the benefit of his professorial services, but we know that he will keep up his keen interest in College activities, including "SMAD."

Congratulations are certainly due to all those who were chiefly responsible for the enormous success that Capp'cade turned out,

Redmond Phillips for his two plays and his Medea impersonation,

P. J. Smith for his " Sheba,"

W. J. Mountjoy, Dorothea Tossman, Don Priestley, the hard-worked producers,

Don Steele. Cedric Wright, the stage managers,

Carl Watson; for that Capping Book.

Two more engagements have been announced in the Varsity world. Joy St. John and Tom Birkes. Also Mary Line and Keith Gavin. Mary is leaving shortly to join him in England.

Tony Chorlton and Ian Milner are setting off on a debating crusade of America. Tony has forsaken the pun as a precautionary measure, fearful lest this more virile nation should "put him on the spot" for perpetrating such atrocities.

The Blues Committee has been selected as follows :—
  • R. Nankervis (Chairman)
  • Miss J. Dunn
  • H. R. C. Wild
  • C. B. Allen
  • D. Burns
  • T. G. Hislop
