Mr J Hodge, the well known Labour MP was the speaker. The collection would be divided between the Railwayman's Orphanage and the Red Cross Society. Mr Hodge gave… an inspiring address on the question ""Am I my brother's keeper?""

The Victoria Science and Technical school has now been open for about three weeks during the autumn season…many of the classes have not filled as well as in former years. An interesting sign of the times is reflected in the fact that the French classes are abnormally full…only twice has a faint whisper been heard in the corridors ""is any German being taught?"".
