Tips For Next Cappicade

Tips For Next Cappicade.

In thanking the three contributors for their articles, two of which we published in "Cappicade," we should like to emphasise that these three alone heeded our impassioned appeals for contributions in previous "Smads." The brilliant idea of taking the "Cappicade" shop originated with Bob Bradshaw, whose tireless energy as sales organiser did much towards the financial success of the book and, we may add, the Revue. We tender our grateful thanks to Bob and his band of enthusiastic helpers, including, of course the Haeremai Club.

The book is now intended primarily to advertise the necessity for a Student Building Fund. We should therefore aim at as wide a circulation as possible and write the book with that object in view. We would suggest to the Executive that arrangements regarding printing and advertisements for the book be made no later than February at the very latest.

Co-operation from all students in forwarding sketches, articles or ideas for either, together with the book, is essential to its success. We would also suggest that future editors pay special attention to lay-out. In order to advertise the Revue, "Cappicade" should be widely distributed at least the week before Capping Week opens with Procession Day. This object will be achieved only if Revue authors give their songs and ideas for illustrations and quips relating to the Revue well before "Cappicade" matter is sent to the printer and not a few days before publication. Editors might well consider the southern idea of publication fictitious names throughout the caste. This would save much time and not a few grey hairs.

With more support from the College before publication, and a sales organisation equal to that of 1935, "Cappicade" should achieve its object. We thank once more all who assisted in the production and distribution of "Cappicade," and in so doing would like to say that we hope we have remedied the defects in the "mystifying turgidities" contributed by P.J.S.
