Football

The Charterhouse match was lost this year by 2 goals to 0. Our fellows were at rather a disadvantage owing their having to play with a much smaller ball than they are accustomed to, which puzzled our backs very much. The match was played at Charterhouse this year.

In the T.B.B. Q.S.S. we lost by 2 goals to nothing. This was not surprising as the Q.S.S. had nine “shirts”.

One of the masters C. H. H. Cheyne who has been unwell for a long time has become much worse and been obliged to give up his post of Under Mathematical Master. A general subscription (voluntary) has been raised with which to make him some present on his leaving us, and we have been able to give him a clock and £26 in a purse. He is going to Torquay to a warmer climate.

I had rather a disagreeable row about a tanning. I found a fellow at courts without leave and so tanned him. Jones heard of it and showed up to Scott who would not hear of courts being out of bounds. Next morning I went to Scott’s with Captain and a monitor to speak about it but he stuck to his own opinion. Here the matter ended.

During last holidays we were all startled by the news that the captain H. K. Rogers has committed suicide, No reason for his doing so seems to be forthcoming and I think that we are fully justified in believing that it was the result of an accident. Scott and Ingram seized upon it as an excuse for putting off the play for this year though the real reason of their doing so was that, not knowing of any good actors amongst the present upper election, they funked the trouble of coaching them. However we might very well here quote the proverb “Procrastinations in the thief of time” as next year their trouble will be doubled both Seniors and Third Elections being new to it. J.A. Turner takes Rogers’ place as captain.
