Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 2. March 16, 1938
This year there would appear to be on paper fair prospects in this event. Five of last year's crew are available, namely. Hansen, Broad, Bullock, Burge and Rose. These men are all keeping fairly fit with regatta racing and are resting for a few days to recuperate from valiant though unsuccessful efforts at the Wellington Regatta. Last year's emergency—Hull—is also keeping in trim, though he is spending more time in the air than on the water. There are a fine lot of husky newcomers also eager for a place in the eight: of these. Ellingham, Ryan, Mahood. Hermans, Saunders, Jack and Fitzgerald seem to be all in the running for a 3-mile jaunt on the Wha Estuary.
