Sir,—The "Dominion" informs us that Messrs Kitts and Conibear intend to change, by Act of Parliament, the Victoria University of Wellington into the mere University of Wellington. We are to be no longer "Vic" we will be "Wgtn."
It is my contention that this in but the latest move in a hideous conspiracy. I quote as evidence the abolition of tramcars. One of those tramcars has a door bearing the poem,
"Victoria, thou art greater than the city that lies beneath thee. . ."
Is it not plain what fell philosophy underlies these activities?
Why must these men be allowed to destroy our traditions and take away our heritage.
"Victorians! Rise up and Fight!"
"Thou Art Greater than the City that Lies Beneath Thee! ! !"
