The New College

BY CHRISTOPHER HOLLIS Henceforth in Colleges Wykehamical All sex relations shall be arnica', Freedom will broaden by consent From precedent to precedent. (Oh, God, to see the pinches stir Across the Meads at Winchester.) Women will serve on all the Boards And ladies soon will play at Lord's, Till runs may anywhere be made Save in the Burlington Arcade. Football will own its female fowl As boy and girl play cheek by jowl, And slinking through the Quad be seen The sly shade of a mistress Dean, While lady Bishops call the ban And preach how Woman Makyth Man.

They don't approve of this at all, I'm told, at Lady Margaret Hall.
