Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 8. August 3, 1959
The Vic. cross-country team may not be the strongest team to travel to tournament but the team has spirit, and a will to try, though winning be nigh impossible.
The team captain, Mike Honey-field, will lead, or follow three promising runners in John Thornley, Ian MacAusland and Roger Clark, plus a slow-pack man (your Sports Editor) who happened to be going to Dunedin for Press Council.
The absence of the club's more experienced runners is lamentable, and points to the difficulties encountered by the part-time student, whose boss prefers work before play.
Vic's. Harriers at tournament may not do much more than show the flag down South But he who goes in winning . . .
