Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 15, No. 6. April 24, 1952

It was evident by the number of members present at the fifty-second annual meeting, that the V.U.C. Men's Hockey Club is one of the most virile and active organisations of this college.
The administration is in the hands of patron, G. F. Dixon Esquire; president, H. Lawry; club captain, T. W. Turner; secretary, N. J. Comp-ton; and treasurer, H. P. Taylor. These are backed by a committee consisting of R. G. O'Conner, L. Gat-field and N. Furdson.
However, these elections were not accomplished without undue exertion, for frequent reference had to be made to a mysterious document called a constitution.
A most alarming report was presented by the treasurer who stated that (in spite of the fact that he had juggled his books) he couldn't make the V.U.C.S.A. grant cover expenses. This was due to increased affiliation fees to the Wellington Hockey Association.
The secretary gave a very capable report for 1951. (We hope club members have read it.)
Prospects for this season are good. John Blackwood (C.U.C. and N.Z.U. rep.), Doug. St. John (Otago and N.Z.U. rep.) and Ian Lauren son (back from Wanganui) have promised to play for us. Training has already commenced, and as there is a possibility of a N.Z.U. versus Australia match later on this season everyone is rearing to go.
The selection committee, L. Gat-field, G. Coates and R. O'Conner will have a difficult task in picking teams for this year, so they have decided to hold several trial matches after Easter.
Gym practices are held on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. in the Upper Gym under the eye of instructor W. Landreth. If you're interested and want to play hockey, come along.
