Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 3. May 3, 1944
Co-operation at V.U.C
Co-operation at V.U.C.
In spite of the short time available in which to prepare the production, everything is going well to schedule. Rehearsals have been an outstanding success, and although difficulty has been experienced in getting rush Jobs done by outside people already short staffed, all serious obstacles have been overcome and "the show will go on."
Mr. Meek has pointed out that the presence of women in the cast has a very good effect on morale. Not only has it been possible to have impromptu dances during the tea interval, but they also give colour to the show, and make rehearsals pleasant social functions. (He also remarked on the number of romances that arise as a result. We make no predictions.)
To all appearances, the Extrav is not only going to be a great success as a show, but also it will act as an example to every member of the College how much can be done if we act as a body. If the University is to fulfill its true function, we must learn that, by co-operation, we can achieve a great deal more than we ever dreamed before. That such a spirit is alive in V.U.C. is evident from the greater activity shown this year by many clubs and organisations about the College. But the Extrav. has made it obvious to everyone.
Any students who have suffered disadvantage in regard to appointments to Jobs or anything else through excessive delay in publication of examination results or mailing of papers, please communicate this information to the Corresponding Member, N.Z. U.S.A., c/o Exec. Room, V.U.C.
