Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 5. May 5, 1943
And, the Exec. thinks, worth it. Capping week has always been a rallying point of student unity, and at this time should be stronger than over. An effort to carry on festivities as in pre-war years, including such merriments as a full-scale public Extrav., procession, and such, would now be sheer sabotage. This being so, Capping Ball becomes an even greater centre of interest than in the old days and will be an even finer show. Of course, it is expensive; one hundred and fifty pounds is no joke, and with a free list of ninety (graduates only), the deficit may take some covering. But—a perfect floor, a good orchestra, supper, plenty of room, vague and happy, if heady, memories of the '42 Ball—make it more than worth while. Tickets will probably be at a premium; there were only 200 printed, so we advise haste. The Exec.-room between five and seven is the place for booking and the show goes on next Friday.. Be there!
