EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 June 1954
EDITORIAL With the beginning of the winter term, it is time for students to take stock of their life at the College, There is an old adage that students spend third term regretting the .'work they don't do in first and second terms. I could say 'Don't let this happen to youj' but not being in a moralising mood today I won't. The winter term which begins today is a busy one — both for work and for play 0 The S.R.C, and the Students' Clubs are planning a number of activities of various kinds and I urge you to attend as many as you can because with the close of second term most of these activities will stop. Even club organisers and S.R.C . members have exams , to pass (they hope J ) and consequently the arrival of third terra means settling down to work and giving up all trivial pursuits. The College magazine 'Prometheus' will be on sale towards the end of second term. There is still time for contributions - if you get them in quickly. 'Woroni' will be published fortnightly throughout...
