Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 14. July 12, 1939
Sixty-one is a phenomenal attendance for a 'Varsity gramophone recital. Whether the success of the first of the 'popular' recitals was due to the nature of the programme, or to the extensive advertising it received, is hard to say. The Important fact is that 40 or 50 more students have shown themselves interested in this branch of V.U.C. activities. It is to be hoped that this interest will not wane, especially as Tuesday's recital was by no means a fair sample of the possibilities of the Carnegie machine. Interested persons would be well advised to attend other programmes—programmes of a nature that permits them to be more coherent, and, to many, more enjoyable.
The "popular" programmes will continue each Tuesday at 1 p.m. Other programmes are arranged for Mondays at 1.15 p.m. and Thursdays at 8 p.m. Details are posted outside the library, while an efficient card index to the 900 records owned by the College is to be found opposite the library counter. It should be noted that the students may have records played, other than at times set down for regular recitals, by special arrangement with one of the gramophone committee. The collection is there to be used: use it.
