Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 2. March 23, 1959
A part-time commerce student, John has shown a keen interest and taken an active part in student life.
He was a member of 1958 Extravaganza and is always willing to hand on ideas and use his experience to help future performances of this—one of the university's most important and outstanding extra-curricular achievements.
A past member of Weir House, probably the most notorious university hostel in New Zealand, he has taken a keen interest in the activities of the university, playing rugby and cricket for varsity teams.
Capping, the biggest and most important function of the university year, is another of his interests, along with many other parts of university life. His outside interests include taking an active part in the Junior National Party and the Wellington Accountants' Students Society.
