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


On Thursday, May 11, at 8 o'clock, Varsity is going to expect everyone to do his/her duty by turning up In the Gym for the historic occasion of the Undergraduates' Supper. Traditionally, undergraduates (freshers excepted), you fete the illustrious few on the night before their big ordeal. This is your show, to demonstrate an appreciation of their long labours in the Halls of Learning, and to farewell most of them into the bargain. It's your last chance to see them (and they will all be there as "Graduands Free" is the slogan) before they go onwards and upwards to bigger and brighter things. Undergraduates' Supper is part of the tradition of V.U.C. and therefore has its serious and its brighter side—traditional toasts give the various atmosphere—the brighter side is the eating, the items and invariably also in the speeches replying to the toasts, delivered by ancient but eminent members of the Staff and student bodies. It's the one show you don't want to miss. Tickets (two shillings) will be on sale in the Exec. Room from 5 to 7 p.m. They may also be obtained at the Cafeteria.
