Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 10 July 28, 1943

Convictions

Convictions

Recently the V.U.C. debating society had an opportunity of debating against an outside club in our own hall. On Friday, 16th, three members of the Hutt Valley Debating Club rose to oppose the motion "That the workers of New Zealand are not pulling their full weight in the war effort," proposed by Messrs. Campbell, O'Connor and O'Leary. Unfortunately the Varsity team were debating against their convictions, and the Hutt Valley team had all the arguments.

Generally it was a good and worthy debate with plenty of solid "figures" and ponderous proofs, and [unclear: then] Stan. [unclear: Campbell] was not at his best at first, though his summing up was fairly lively. Hutt Valley were placed first by the judge, Mr. Perry, chiefly on account of their excellent team-work.
