Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 7 July 2, 1941

A few things not to do at Extrav. 1942:—
(1)Don't let the show run till 11.10 p.m. If it runs past 10.30 ring down the curtain in the middle.
(2)If trams are held up—don't wait till 8.20 to ring up curtain. This anyway, is the state manager's affair and has nothing to do with Extrav. organiser.
(3)Advice to cast in dressing rooms about the performance is the producer's job, not the Extrav. organser's.
(4)Cut out all lavatory humour. If a scene cant be funny without it—cut the scene.
(5)Avoid at all costs having anybody near the show who wants a final curtain, speeches, flowers, and all the flapdoodle of a society bun-fight. The back-stage workers should have been given a few extra bottles of beer and not made to make the audience feel uncomfortable. This is one of the best traditions of recent Extravs.
(6)Keep the cast out of the audience.

D. G. Edwards.

Owing to the poor support that the proposed Sunday night meetings will appear to get from the number of names on the notice board and owing to the difficulty of transport during the blackout, the S.C.M. does not feel that it can undertake the responsibility of inviting members of the staff to address the college on the topic, "What I Live By."
