Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 2. March 16, 1938



Against Old Boys, the Seniors made 228. P. Wilson contributing a fine century. A typically patient innings by Wiren took much of the sting out of the bowling, and Harding and Harpur also batted well. If the latter would eliminate the propensity to recklessness in his batting, he would score more heavily.

Hutt with 170 for 5, are leading the Seconds, who were dismissed for 133. Whiting, a promising batsman, batted well for 41. He had good defence and is patient without being stodgy. Fitzgerald bit vigorously, if luckily, for 25. Parkin and McPhall, our slow bowlers, have taken two wickets each.

Bray's 7 for 38 for the Junior B team was an excellent performance; and for the Thirds good bowling was done by Murphy, although his team suffered defeat.

The respectable people only insist so much on their honesty because they have nothing else in their favour; it is like the chastity or the plain woman—making a virtue of necessity.—Ethel Mannin.
