Tramping Club.

The Tramping Club has obtained permission for 10 of its members to visit Kapiti Island at Easter. Trampers intending to take advantage of this opportunity are asked to make sure first that they are not required for any Tournament activities. Leave a note for Miss Kate Ross.

"The Case Against Pacifism."

The V.U.C. Society for the Discussion of Peace, War, and Civil Liberties hopes to hold shortly a panel discussion on this subject. As the constitution of the Society requires that no meeting be held without the views of both sides being represented, two speakers are required to defend the pacifist position. Will any students who feel they would care to do this see (or leave a note in the lack for) Mr. P. A. Mitchell. Questions will follow the discussion, and eveybody will have the chance to hoe in later.

Toll for the Brave.

A group of students have in hand the arranging of a simple ceremony at the grave in Sydney Street Cemetery of that famous anti-conscriptionist and free-speech fighter, the late Mr. Harry Holland, former leader of the New Zealand Labour Party. There will be a short address, and the help of those who would wish to assist with appropriate music is asked for. Would any students who feel they can help in this way leave a note c/o "Salient."

Tuesday, March 25.

A Concert will be held to inaugurate the new music room, stage, etc. Chamber music for piano, strings, and clarionet, by Mendelseohn, Loeillet, and Prokofieff. Songs by Miss Olga Burton (soprano) and Mr. Roy Hill (tenor). Part or all of the proceeds will be donated to Miss Glen Macmorran, Varsity's own Education Princess in the Victory Queen Carnival.

The poor man at his gate,
