Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 12. August 20, 1947

From Otago—

From Otago—

From Otago we have some opinions [unclear: ulted] from the latest "Critic."

Men's Hockey.—"The team representing Otago University at Winter Tournament is not quite as strong as that usually fielded in local competitions, owing to the fact that two of our players—centre-forward and centre-half—have been unable to make the trip. With these two replaced, however, we still have a strong team, and there is every reason for optimism as to the results of hockey in the tournament."

Soccer.—"This year our confidence is tempered with a determination for an unbeaten record."

Table Tennis.—"Of the team Jocelyn Davis has played in two past tournaments and last year was the winner of a University Blue. Rob McKenzie represented Otago in 1945, and was awarded an Otago Blue. W, Phillips was captain of the Otago team in last year's tournament."

Fencing.—"Both Trousdale and Drayton are up to their last year's standard, and Drayton at least has even improved on this. They will be hard to beat.

"Making their first appearance in Winter Tournament. Grace and Bod-well are expected to do well. Grace being a very hard man on whom to score points, and Bodwell with a very quick attack."

Otago also expects to do well with their women's team, Miss Anderson and Miss MacLean.

Men's Basketball.—"The team to travel to the tournament this year should fill the expectations of the "Star Sports" reporter and win the Men's Basketball Championship. Since the match against CUC was lost by 42 to 39, the A team has advanced much in team-work and skill and should be able to turn the tables on CUC, the winners of last year."

Shooting.—"This year the club's "ace" shots are unable to represent Otago University at the Tournament, being otherwise occupied, and the chances of the shooting four being able to contribute to OC's score are sadly diminished. The team have all been practising whenever possible, and the scores have been creeping up over the last 8 per cent, of the total possible score with the promising sign of consistency."

Golf.—"The golf team consists of P. C. Grayson, D. B. Brown, J. Weston, T. Nelson, G. Anderson, D. W. Low. "All these players are improving steadily and in good conditions should give an excellent account of themselves, as they have done during the club matches this year."

Harriers.—"The A team in various events, basicall the same as the tournament team, was placed third in the Edmond Cup, fourth in the Lovelock Relay and in Provincial championships."
