Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 5. May 7, 1946
Hot on the trail of Extrav's. erstwhile producer, John McCreary, "Salient's" reporters discovered him wearing a check sports-coat, a harrassed expression, and himself away with worry.
Having penetrated the rather resistant veil of his withdrawal (which presented those curious features, already familiar to those having any acquaintance with producers in general) they succeeded in withstanding his wrath until they had obtained the following pertinent information: so far the progress or rehearsals has been eminently satisfactory, although at this writing there are still a few vacancies in the cast (both sexes), especially (sic!) vicious characters. (If in doubt, please refer to script.)
Wardrobe mistress has no complaints to make as she is receiving plenty of assistance both permanent and intermittent, manual and material. Two big sombreros are still needed, however, also (of particular importance) costumes of the United Nations.
All desirable assistance has been forthcoming for the conception, erection and decoration of the various props; enthusiasm has been high and heartening; no room for complaints in this direction either, but the one remaining requirement is (of all things!) a rickshaw; if such a vehicle is not forthcoming the property manager will be glad of the loan of a pair of bicycle wheels with which to devise a suitable facsimile thereof, and will even go so far as to pay for insurance if the owner has fears for the safety of his property (It would be best to inshaw them in case they are accidentally ricked.)
