Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 13. October 4, 1951

Cause for Wooden Spoons?

Cause for Wooden Spoons?

Sir,—Being entirely in agreement with the sentiments expressed in a recent article, "Are You a Telegraph Pole?" which appeared in Salient I can but take a dim view of two incidents which occurred recently at the College.

The first was a meeting of the Historical Society to be held on Wednesday, September 12 in B2 which was to be addressed by Professor Beaglehole. The meeting was timed for 8 p m., but there was still no sign of anyone at ten past, when I left in disgust.

The second incident was the Annual General Meeting of the Tennis Club. This was advertised for Tuesday, September 19. I went along to A4 on both Tuesday and on the 19th but not a single official turned up.

It is bad enough having telegraph poles at the College but when these telegraph poles are club officials who do not fulfil their obligations then something ought to be done, and done smartly.
