Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 1 March 12, 1941
Boxing activity is well under way and with the annual Victoria College tournament chalked up for the near future—March 20th tentatively—our pugilists are already swinging the punch bag with a will.
The season is short and snappy; after Easter organized boxing is over for the year, so our efforts are concentrated into these few weeks, culminating in the Inter-Varsity Easter Tournament. Last year our Victoria boxers carried home the shield triumphantly from this tournament—this year we must retain it.
Each Monday and Thursday nights at 7 p.m. we are coached by the veteran professional Tim Truly in his gymnasium in Upper Willis Street. Training is keen, and the boring technique is rapidly improving under the capable tuition of Tui. We mean to hold that shield this year.
Although we would like to see everyone entering for the local tournament, it is by no means obligatory. Take advantage of these training evenings to become fit—rise from the musty text book and join us in the healthy activity of the club. This is a great chance to improve your boxing, so waste no time.
Enter for our own tournament. You may win your weight and the honour of representing Victoria in the Easter tournament.
