January 1936: Literary & Debating Society. ‘At the first meeting of the term, September 27th, the committee and secretary were elected. O’Leary, Moyes, Bennett, Mitchell and Baisbrown were elected to serve on the committee, the last-named being elected secretary.’ ‘On October 18th, the debate was “That the League of Nations was justified in Applying Sanctions against Italy.” Mr Langley, for the proposition, described the universal use of sanctions in a very comprehensive speech. He was seconded by Page and opposed by Wroe and Hammond. When the debate was thrown open to the house, Mitchell, Read, Moyes, and the secretary, discussed the League, and Britain’s past imperial conquests. The motion was carried by 22 votes to 9.’ ‘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.’
