Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 23. September 28, 1950



Last week, corso held a clothes drive in Wellington. The result was fairly good, and when the day was over, shed 21 at Waterloo Quay was more or less stacked. But Corso cannot sit back and have a pleasant time congratulating itself: this was only the beginning of the work there is to be done.

For at least the next three weeks volunteers will be working from 6 to 9 each night, and on Saturdays, getting the clothes sorted, packed, [unclear: baled] and labelled—and all the other miscellaneous jobs there are to be done before the results of the drive can be dispatched overseas.

Admittedly, most people will be fairly blocked out with swot for exams from the beginning of October on: but if there is only one spare night without anything else to do, Corso would be only too glad to take in a few volunteers to help with the packing. Men, women and any other sexes will be welcomed.

The location is shed 21—which is, coincidently, right opposite to the Waterloo Hotel. By getting along there, even if it were only for a few hours of one night, you could be doing something to see that those clothes go where they are needed most when they are needed most—before the winter.

Any offers?
