Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 3 March 31th, 1943



There was a large attendance at the Annual General Meeting of the Rugby Club and what was very pleasing they were mostly freshers according to the secretary Orm Creed, who knows everybody if not everything.

The following officers were elected: Club captain, Henry Moore; Deputy Club captain, A. O'Shea; Secretary, O. Creed; Treasurer, [unclear: P] A. Taylor; Teams officer, J. Tamlin King. Committee: J. Carrad, J. Stacey, W. Weston, B. Igglesden, plus the usual long list of fairy godmothers. It is evident that no resolution has taken place in the football club.

The issue of amalgamation with Old Boys was not raised because Old Boys themselves did not wish it. Club officials gave "Salient" numerous sound reasons why such an amalgamation would be undesirable but "Salient" never claimed that such an amalgamation would be a good thing for Varsity. We only thought that the insular attitude revealed when the question was raised would if general in the rugby world hardly do the game much good.

Items of Interest—(1) First practice probably Saturday, 17th April. (2) There will possibly be a trip to Wairarapa or Manawatu at Easter. (3) The senior team will be coached by Jim Parker and Henry Moore.

An appeal to all past members.—Please will you sell your old jerseys socks and shorts? These are now almost impossible to obtain, and it is understood that the N.Z.R.U. was not given any assistance by the Go vernment when it appealed for more jerseys.
