SMAD. An Organ of Student Opinion. 1935. Volume 6. Number 11.

Dick Wild

Dick Wild.

Dick has been nominated for the position of Men's Vice-President He was our Rhodes Scholarship nominee in 1933, has seen two years' service on the Executive, is Club Captain of the Cricket Club, and—crowning glory—was for a while a Sports Editor of "Smad." As minor achievements we note his Presidency of Weir House and three years' secretaryship of the Football Club.

His "sop to the electors" features Tournament and the Building Fund. "There are 200 billers to be found," he said, in tones of sepulchral despair, while fiercely demanding that the new Exec. should start right into Tournament organisation as soon as it was elected.

As for the Building Fund, he suggested that there was great scope for canvassing influential people and bringing the project to their notice. He was in favour of preparing plans for the building immediately, so that we should have a definite figure to aim at. And as a parting theorem he enunciated that "the duty of the Exec. was to do the executive work of the Association." Fortunate is the lot of one who plays the role of the "swine" to these great men!
