Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 21, No. 8. 2nd July, 1958

Billets, Please . .

Billets, Please . . .

On Sunday morning the 7th of August some 450 students will arrive from the other 'Varsities to compete in Winter Tournament. At least 400 of this number will require billets. All students who can possibly help by providing such accommodation are expected to do so . . . Remember that it has several social advantages. Would anyone who desires to help please fill in a billeting form obtainable from the notice-board outside the Common Room and leave at the Exec. Office.

In about six weeks' time the Universities Winter Tournament takes place in Wellington. There will be twelve sports connected with this year's tournament—badminton, boxing, fencing, golf, harriers, men's basketball, men's hockey, women's basketball, women's hockey, shooting, soccer and table tennis. In addition, the University drama competition and the Joynt Scroll Debating contest will take place.

The organisation of Tournament is a difficult task at any time. This year it will be further complicated by the removal of the gym before Tournament starts. An enthusiastic committee under the chairmanship of Jim Zohrab, who is to be Tournament Controller, has already begun making the necessary arrangements. Perhaps the most difficult task is finding billets for the hundreds of sportsmen and sportswomen who will be coming to Wellington for Tournament. If any reader can billet one or more of our visitors during Tournament week (the first week of the August vacation) leave a message for Elizabeth Beck, Billeting Controller, c/o Students' Union Office.

A number of students will be required to assist in the administration of Tournament, both before it begins, and during Tournament week as headquarters staff. There are also other duties to be carried out. All those readers interested should leave a message for the Secretary of the Tournament Committee. John Hercus, at the Students Union Office.

J. Hercus,

Tournament Secretary.
