The Spike Victoria University College Review 1944
If lateness of entry disqualifies, I think the prize should go to 'The Poet's Mantle.' In any case it is the only one of the contributions that is fully original. If lateness is no bar I am inclined to prefer 'Freedom and Planning' as being the most mature and most finished contribution, though not page 25 the one holding out the best promise for future development. As you do not mention a wish for derailed comment on the others, I merely say that none is without some merit, and all or nearly all show promise for the future.

('We New Zealanders,' 'Ern Malley and the Angry Penguins,' and 'Causerie on Translation' were not submitted for judgment. Mr. Money's article was actually handed in on time, consequently it wins the prize and is printed below.)
