Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 3. May 3, 1944



May we present the Extravaganza and Capping Organisers. They were appointed at a meeting extraordinary of the Executive, called immediately after the discovery of a script.

Two days later a casting meeting had been held; a hundred scripts typed, cyclostyled and distributed; the Opera House booked; Cappicade started; properties collected; costumes organised; publicity undertaken; and all the hundred and one Jobs which make Capping Week possible pushed ahead.

The public (Including ourselves) are inclined to remember the cast alone. Let us here pay a tribute to the indefatigable team behind the scenes.
