Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 18. September 20, 1939

[Introduction]

It is with feelings of regret that the members of the Harrier club view the rapid approach of the end of the season. The Endeavour Cup contest marked the completion of the racing programme, but there yet remain two club runs before the season is finally brought to a close. Scrymgeour is club champion for the third year in succession with Newall runner-up. Although on perusing the actual results in open competition it appears that the season has been a failure, this is far from being a true Indication of the club's position. The membership has now grown to ever fifty, probably more than in any previous season, while the average attendance, too, has shown a marked improvement. The members all showed a healthy enthusiasm and amongst the large number of new members there was in evidence quite a supply of harrier talent. That more success did not attend the runners' efforts is due largely to the fact that they were for the most part inexperienced, as it is only after several seasons in the sport that big things can be expected.
