Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 5. 1965.
10.00am. Went in to listen to NZUSU mouthing. In all fairness, they come a poor third to NZSPA and NZUSA, in that order.
10.25am. We left NZUSU and headed back to the CANTA room.
2.18pm. Over to watch the tennis. The men's team had beaten CAC 6 sets to none to reach the semifinals, where they had a tougher fight to beat OU 5-1. When we arrived they were playing CU in the final. John Souter won his singles, but the other CU players were a bit, too good for the VUW men. There was not enough time to play the doubles matches.
The female section of the VUW team were not quite as successful. They had a good win against CU on Saturday morning, but were beaten by OU 4-2 on the afternoon. They were to play MUM for third place, but once again there was not enough time to even play any singles, and like the men's games the match was postponed till the next morning.
6.04pm. Once again unto the Canta room.
7.15pm. The records staff saw us arrive and went to get the results handed in without a word being said.
The yachtsmen were still consistent. OU had piled up a lead with another first and another second, AU dropped off to two thirds, and CU had picked up a first and a second.
In water polo the VUW side went down narrowly to OU by 5 goals to four. Since CU won their other game this meant that VUW came third overall. Spear, Cameron, Crowder and Thornton gave VUW representation in the North Island team that lost to South Island 9-4; even so, they were picked for NZU to play Canterbury.
With the shooting, water polo and rowing finished, CU had a substantial points lead for the tournament shield. Points were: CU 24, OU 8, VUW 6, AU 4.
