Intellectuals in the Backwoods

Tauherenikau Hut last Sunday morning presented a rather unusual scene. Most of "Salient" Staff was transported there on Saturday and the following morning proceeded to hold their laying out meeting. Scissors and paste, galleys and paste-ups were dragged out of sundry packs and soon floor and table were covered with scraps of paper, the air was filled with curses and cigarette smoke, and a facsimile of the paper you are now reading soon appeared. At lunch time some people thought the paste might make a tasty addition to the dessert, but this suggestion was overruled as the new regulations regarding the disposal of Stud. Ass. property would not countenance such undue consumption. This tramp was only the second for some years for which lorry transport from Wellington was provided. The advantages, financial and social, of lorry transport are overwhelming. The club is now allowed one lorry a month and as a result will be able to run far more varied and interesting trips, as well as several skiing trips to Kime and Holdsworth in the winter.
