Hoylake Sailing Club. The first race of the season for the C class (decked yachts) came off on Saturday last. The starters were:- Irene, Mr C. H. Lancaster, scratch: Bedouin, Mr Fred Evans, 1 minute; Doris, Mr J. R. G. Langdow, 3 minutes; Kittiwake, Mr C. and J. Ridchalgh [sic]; Daphne, Mr J. Nelson Davies, 6½ minutes; Imp, Mr J. Halton Hall, 8 minutes; Gaiety Girl, Mr Fenner, 8 minutes. The two latter ships are the new Southport ¾-raters, designed by Mr W. Scott Hayward. The course was the outside one of about 11 miles. They were started at 2.30 with a nice light breeze about N.W., and Irene, determined to lose no time in wiping off her penalties, was first across the line, with Imp second and Doris last, a somewhat straggling start. It was a broad reach at R 3 Red buoy, and a close hand to Spencer Spit, then a run to L 1. Irene walked away all the time, and Doris, for the first time in her life, found herself beating Bedouin, while the yawl Daphne was hanging on to Kittiwake well. The two little raters were hopelessly out of it, but of the two Imp was doing best. There was no change in positions, Irene winning first prize and Doris second.

Literary & Debating Society. ‘The most popular meeting of term, possibly the most popular in the Society’s history, took place on November 15th, when a “Grousers’ Night” was held. Judging by the attendance, members and others were far from satisfied with the School and its rules. Moyes complained of the lack of interest taken in certain sections of the School; O’Leary lamented the lack of respect for tradition and authority in the school; Hébert demanded a complete revision of school rules, while Mr Evans deplored the absence of manners among boys of the school. Read, as usual, attacked all and sundry; Jones spoke on behalf of the prefects, for whom Mitchell saw no use; Hicks called for more intensive training of school teams, while Mr Walker complained of wasted time. Stainer and Lowe attacked the present prefectorial system, and Bennett asked for a graded system of conduct marks. The Headmaster replied, promising to give attention to any wrongs that required setting right.’
