Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 18. September 20, 1939
The season Just ended has seen the most cherished hope of recent years realised. After a period of servitude in the second division the first fifteen has not only regained but justified its status as a senior team. This has been the result of various factors; firstly the keenness of Jim Parker and Dick Wild to bring it to the peak of achievement; secondly, the marked accession of interest by those con nected with the club in former years, and finally the enthusiasm shown by the individual members of the team.
The team has been particularly fortunate in welcoming back to the fold that stalwart of former years, "Fat" Rae. The new members of the team have proved valuable acquisitions while the nucleus of the "old hands" has performed with distinc tion. Victoria has supplied her quota to the North island and N.Z. Varsity teams and various members have won representative honours.
While the team performed in rather an inconsistent fashion, yet there is every reason to believe that next year Varsity will regain some of the glam our which has surrounded the team in other years.
