Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 11. July 30, 1947


On two successive Saturdays recently members of the VUC Harrier Club have performed with distinction. In the Anderson Rally at Dannevirke, members of the Club filled the first two places and the Club gained second place in the teams' event. The following week, in the Dorne Cup race, one of the big fixtures of the year, Varsity were again second in the teams' race, as well as having the second man home.

On each occasion the weather was unkind, and the Dorne Cup was run during the recent bad storm. It was, however, the only sporting event to be conducted in Wellington that day—testimony to the hardiness of harriers generally. The harrier chibs' record of never having cancelled a run because of weather conditions is unique.
