Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 1. March 3, 1954
From an academic viewpoint. Victoria's achievement was also great. In scholarships awarded. Victoria gained more than her share, and for the second year in succession one of her members was successful in gaining a Rhodes Scholarship.
There can be little doubt that the College is enjoying one of its most successful periods, that the Executive has been fully aware of the fact and has in general devoted its energies to the task of making permanent the greatly improved spirit among students which has naturally followed upon success. By meeting Club representatives at regular intervals, it has endeavoured to assist them in every way in building up strong and active organisations. On the social side, it organised last year a series of dances; which on the whole were the most successful for several years. In the matter of service to students it has carried on the Student Employment Service and the Stationery Scheme which were promoted by the previous Executive, and this year it is hoped a Text Book Scheme will be added.
