Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 15, No. 16. August 14, 1952
The Joynt Scroll Debating Team this year consists of Frank Curtin and Jim Milburn.
Frank, who will be leader of the team, is an experienced speaker who has been a member of the Debating Society for over five years. He first represented V.U.C. last year at Lincoln. He is at present the President of the Society, and is a past winner of the Union Prize for Debating and the Plunket Medal for Oratory.
The other member, Jim Milburn, is a past President of the Society who, by his brilliance this year, has shown that he is the finest speaker the Society possesses today and, at his best, is probably the equal of any who have represented the college in the past.
He is like Frank, a Plunket Medalist and Union Prize winner. He represented Vic. In 1948, 1949 and 1950. but was not available last year. He has met with more success in the role of supporting speaker than as leader because of his ability to select the vital points in an opponent's case and destroy them."
On the whole, the team is probably one of the strongest to represent Victoria for many year and should have an excellent chance of scoring the first victory for V.U.C. since 1943.
