Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 13 July 5, 1939
Should a Dramatic Club have preference over a Table Tennis Club? That was the all-important question raised when a certain member of the theatrical clique interviewed the Table Tennis Club Committee vainly endeavouring to persuade them they should relinquish their rights to use the gymnasium in favour of a production which was evidently so far behindhand that it needed every night for two weeks, regardless of the interests of any other club.
The mere fact that it had the use of the gym every other night was not sufficient. No! The production would not go across unless it had it every night. No! They would not be met half way. The D.C. interests must come first, and they could not compromise. Was not this mighty production eagerly awaited far and wide in the University world? Would not these countless numbers of enthusiastic play-goers be doomed to disappointment if Mabel or [unclear: Maisie] crossed her legs in the wrong place? What were the rights of a few more table tennis players where the all important Dramatic Club was concerned?
But it was not to be. Club night went on as usual; and the pleasant sound of bat meeting ball mingled with the voices of actors and actresses on a curtained stage.
And it all goes to show—the need for a bigger and better Students' Building where the requirements of all can be catered for.
