Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 7, No. 5 June 21, 1944



The Soccer team has been having a stormy passage of late, due possibly to the late arrival of members of the team, combined with unfavourable grounds and general bad luck.

Certain members of the backs are of the opinion that the forwards lie a little too far forward and could be a little more forward in coming back—the slogan is "come and get it." The forwards, though impressed by the vocal powers of the backs, contend that the backs are Buffering from an optical illusion which causes them to see men who are not there, and vice versa.

Last week the team was cheered on by a new supporter, who may become a regular so that with the revival of our former cheer-squad, the two might together enliven the game. Perhaps this unnerved the team and so contributed to our defeat last Saturday.

Congratulations go to Jack Walls, who repped for Wellington on King's Birthday. He is this year's Club-Captain, supported by Nev. Swinburne as Vice-Captain and Jack Williams as Secretary-Treasurer. With the possibility of a Tournament this year we want to build up as strong a team as possible, so if you would like a try-out, turn up on Saturday, or contact any of the above.
