Aussies Get Peck from Beck

Aussies Get Peck from Beck

At the Rugby Club dance in the Gym on Saturday. May 29. our Exec, beauties initiated the Aussies into the mystical rites—or wrongs—of a corroboree (New Zealand style). Although "Salient" cannot disclose the full story of such a sacred ritual, we can say that painted foreheads featured largely in their consecration as V.U.C. Blues. The freedom of the Press also permits us to disclose that the anointing with lipstick was carried out in the most efficient and pleasant manner by the Women's Vice-President. It was to be noted that most of the Aussies needed no second "Beck"on and certainly no one managed to avoid her call.

This, coupled with the other "pleasures" provided by the Rugby Club's hospitality, no doubt prompted the visitors' much-voiced opinion that the evening's entertainment was "a really grand show."
