The Spike or Victoria College Review 1936

Science Society

Science Society

The Science Society followed the precedent set in former years of arranging lectures of general and scientific interest, even to those with only an elementary knowledge of science.

Two dances were conducted under the auspices of the Society—viz., one—a "Bob Hop"—and the other held in conjunction with the Athletic, Football, Harrier and Fencing Clubs. Both were successful socially.

Lectures held up to the end of July were: the Presidential address on "Cosmic Rays," by Mr. Stewart; a very interesting address on "Soap Manufacture" by Mr. Saxton, and an instructive lantern-illustrated lecture by Mr. Sticht comparing "Yellowstone Park with New Zealand Thermal Activity."
