Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 5. 1965.
The following is a note, from Procession Controller Clive Kirk, on the arrangements for procession this year.
Once more we approach that time of the university year which inevitably involves general disruption for the Wellington public —Capping! An integral part of this is Procesh, which shows the public that university students don't spend all their time swotting. Procesh also offers a golden opportunity to show the rest of the University (the whole of Varsity watches Procesh) that your organisation actually does exist.
Some of you may think that Procesh provides you with some form of diplomatic immunity, and that this is your opportunity to throw down the gauntlet to the law. However, in thinking this you would be sadly mistaken, for unfortunate incidents in Procesh have been jumped on most heavily in the past. Procesh is to amuse, not abuse, the public, and this fact should be borne in mind.
The Wellington public has always looked at students with a jaundiced eye, perhaps because they, the public, are deficient in having a sense of humour, or perhaps because we have carried things a bit too far on occasions. This year, let us endeavour to win them over, and as Procesh is our most spectacular public appearance, why not make a good start here and now.
