Cato's Club Notes

Cato's Club Notes.

Photographic Club:

A dark room does not pall!
The club is likely to enamour a
Good membership, when all
Of its proceedings are in camera!


We'll make the whole world join the holy chorus,
Unless the Evangelicals get in before us.

Tramping Club:

Your academic ways we scorn.
To mountaineering we were born.
From rocky peaks to see the dawn.
We yield to nothing—save the corn.

Science Society:

That lab—so long we asquiesece,
No wonder now and then we effervesce.

Law Students' Society:

If you should see our Syllabus, have pity
On those poor members of our Club Committee
Who perish annually in the quest
For wholesome cases fit for us to test

Dramatic Club:

We artists scorn to be like those
Who form life's tawdry panorama.
So we don the mask, and pose,
And strut about, and call it drama.

Women's Gym. Club:

If you've been lapsing into boredom latterly.
Our evenings are as good as salvolatile.

Commerce Society:

We care not for your learned dissertation:
Your Greek and Latin are beyond our range.
We would not recognise a misquotation
Unless it were upon the Stock Exchange.

All the Athletic Clubs:

We leave the printed page and take to sport.
It's there we really shine. We know we are
The peers of the intelligentsia,
But why compete with them? Our stock is short:
We might exhaust ourselves with so much thought.
