Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 12, No. 3, April 6th, 1949.
At the time of Salient's going to press the shooting team had not been finalised, but the following have a chance of making the grade. Tom Howarth, together with a rifle which "must be easily the best in NZ" is the only certainty. An NZU Blue and top-scorer in last year's match at Dunedin. Ian Henderson has been shooting consistently (at a target as well as a line) as also has Vic McKenzie, both representatives of previous years. R. H. Johnson and R. Shepherd (ex C.U.C.) and Catley, of Massey, all very old hands at this horizontal sport, are again back on the scene. Kjestrup and Treadwell have also substantial claims for inclusion. Massey College can also supply several reputable contenders, Vance Henderson is already polishing up his shooting glasses—he hopes later to be "up to his neck in empties" (cartridges of course).
Under the able guidance of their coach, Reginald Corenethaw, who will be putting up the Crook's Ansata this year, the team should at least get half shot.
