Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 11, No. 6. June 3rd, 1948
With the season now in full swing, we feel that it is time to give some survey of the "talent" which we hope will spring to the fore in the inter-club competition,
The club's outstanding runner is, of course, Clem Hawke, club champion, Captain, and NZU Blue. A new member of the club, Noel Currie, shows every chance of getting a place in the top group. Still a junior, he has twice represented his province in the N.Z. National Champs., and may this year give the Wellington juniors something to think about. Peter Whittle has a well established reputation as one of the best runners in the club, but in past seasons has been held back by accidents, usually about the time of the NZUCC Champs. John Holden is next on the list. He also has a reputation of a good runners—at times. This year it is hoped he will live up to the promise of his performance in last year's Wellington Masterton relay. John Gully showed promise at the beginnings of last season and this year he is running better than ever. Steve Osborne ran well last' year but was not outstanding. This year, however, he has been turning out with the fast pack every Saturday. Finally Des Kelly and John Mawson are two of last year's juniors who should be well up this year.
