Football Meeting

Football Meeting.

"Gentlemen," said Mr. Diederich to the "Smad" reporter and sixty-five others at the Football Club's annual meeting on Thursday, "the secretary will read the annual report" Mr. Sainsbury's anticipated motion that the report be taken as read was soon disposed of, but there was a slight hitch while the secretary burrowed among his papers for the report, until Mr. Donovan rose in a back seat and produced the document from a fold in his garments. The meeting then settled down to listen to seven pages on the success of the Third Cs. and the Fourths the Ruru Shield for the Weir v. Rest game, the excessive travelling 'Varsity teams had and other items of club interest. The business proceeded quietly until Mr. Roberts nominated my lord Nuffield as a vice-president, but Mr. Martin Smith pointed out that though we might be children we were not crippled. The re-election of most members indicated faith in last year's committee, but Messrs. Rae and O'Shea were added to salt them up. Anew constitution was rushed through in place of the 1925 model "to put us on side for our grant," as the secretary said. Four new lights would be added and practices would begin before Easter in readiness for competitions on 27th April.
