Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 4 March 30, 1938

Haeremai Again!

Haeremai Again!

At a meeting culled on Monday 14th. It was decided to proceed with the arrangements preliminary to the re-establishment of a men's club somewhat on the lines or the notorious Haeremai—the Haeremai responsible for the banning of the procesh.

Malcolm Mason was in the chair. The driving force, however, was Bruce Orchiston, a campaigner of many winters, and former president of the Hongi Club at A.U.C. He spoke on the aims and objects of the proposed club; basing suggestions on his experience in Auckland. Organised stunts are to replace the semi-drunken brawls, and instead of roughs, there will be a [unclear: Sect] fraternity forming the nucleus of student activity at College functions.

The meeting elected a committee to consider tho drawing up of a constitution. The first general meeting is to be held shortly and great deeds are expected at Capping Week.

Here is a chance for Victoria to put itself on the map in Wellington, and give the public a chance to appreciate Varsity "rags" without cause for complaint on the grounds of hooliganism or Vulgarity. What will be the result? It is up to you.
