Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 6. May 9, 1957
Games, although the official reason for Tournament, tend to be regarded by the participants as necessary evils to be got out of the way as soon as possible. (This is modified in the case of those who are hunting New Zealand Blues.) The attitude results in few spectators being present at matches where even a small crowd, if vociferous, would greatly encourage the players. On the whole, V.U.C. seemed to be specially guilty in this direction. More encouragement at Winter Tournament might help our players think they are doing twice as well—which would at least be an improvement on our present inferiority complex.
