Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 13. July 15, 1953

[Introduction]

The first meeting of the new exec, as usual, started late. All members of the new regime arrived early (or rather, on time)—with the notable exception of the present (absent) President, Malcolm McCaw. Eventually he arrived, however, and those lucky people sat down, prepared to spend the whole evening if necessary in getting the agenda removed from their paling visages. Among the correspondence was a letter from a local body, protesting lightly against, apparently, something that occurred in the precincts of the cable car on Capping Day—of course gasps of unbelief and flabbergastion (?) were heard all round, but all recovered equilibrium. Mr. Galvin was chuckling uncontrollably for a while, but assured us that he was as much in the dark as anyone.
