Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 8. August 3, 1959
Douglas Edwards, this year's captain, is the only "name player" available for the Poleward Journey. Doug, a third year Commerce type, has so far represented N.Z.U. and Wellington at the game and much responsibility must rest on him.
Victoria's representatives are: D. A. Edwards (capt.), A. J. Reid (manager), J. V. Eade, B. P. Dawkins, C. J. Hagan, E. M. McLay, D. Roberts, B. Spooner and P. White. Last year's captain and N.Z. representative, Ross Martyn, unfortunately is unavailable.
Vital statistics: Average age 19 years, av. height 5ft. 10½in., determination and keenness 100 per cent., efficiency rating (we won last year too, didn't we?).
The team wishes to express its thanks to coach Jim Lewis for sacrificing so much of his time throughout the year to such a cause; and to add a word of warning to Canty, The Great Auk, and O.U. readers.—Cave Victoriam.
