Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 12. June 28, 1939



Mr. Heine opened proceedings with a gymnastic display, which lasted for some time. Apparently, during this display he was reading the minutes of the last annual general meeting, for someone near the front moved that Mr. Heine be recommended to take lessons in speech training. This recommendation was endorsed by the hundred or so students present, and the recommendation was duly conveyed to Mr. Heine. When this comic act was concluded with applause, the retiring president. Mr. R. W. Edgley, epitomised the annual report with commendable brevity.

The great Mr. Bullock was prevailed upon to read the accounts, but his ungainly stance and inaudibility moved the meeting to urge that Mr. Hatherly complete the job, which he did, under protest. We suspect that he skipped a large portion of the report, a most reprehensible action on his part which was naturally resented by the meeting.

With such pleasaunces, and numerous unintelligent Interjections, the meeting proceeded towards more dangerous topics.
