Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 1, No. 1. March 9, 1938



The most notable achievement of the Seniors was the defeat of the hitherto unbeaten [unclear: Kilbirnie] team. Tricklebank Dean, Onngiey and Stephenson have shown all-round from, Wiren, Willson. and Harpur have scored runs consistently. Wiren being the only century-maker. Knowsiey has bowled well in his first season in Senior grade. Trickle bank secured a place in the Welllngton B reps.

For the Second XI. Cornish and Johnston have scored centuries, with Sharrock and Fitzerald also batting well. The all-rounders, Parkin and Drake have taken most of the wickets. Parkin did the "hat trick" on one occasion. Fitzgerald and Kirkham have also bowled with some success. Three new members. Whiting, Jarrett and [unclear: McPhail]. proved their worth in their first game.

The Junior B team is a well-balanced side, with all members doing well at times. Macrae, the captain. has bowled well and has received good support from Walker and Taylor-Cannon, Palmer and Sweeney have batted consistently and Bray is developing into a stylish batsman.

The Junior C team confounded the critics recently with a meritorious win over Institute, the leaders of the competition. Centuries have been scored for the team by Campbell and Wells, and Wilton reached the 80's on one occasion. Moore and Porteous have taken many wickets, and Roberts, with shrewd variation of length and direction, has bluffed out a few. Edgley, staging a come-back, has batted and bowled outstandingly well.
