Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950



The Panel, which ensures a continuity for each member of at least five years, has among its members an amazing variety of knowledge of practically all sports in the University, but an even greater factor is the ability to glean knowledge of the sports and to be able to judge the standard of the sport ln general and the individuals in particular. At least one member of the Panel, more if possible, attends each sport, so that the Panel has personal knowledge of the happenings of said sport.

Finally, three things are certain:—
1.No difficulty arises in selecting the first few people for Blues—it la the borderline cases that require the most attention.
2.The standard in most sport is capable of improvement.
3.The Blue is not awarded to bolster sport in the University, it is solely an award for individual merit.
