Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria, Wellington. Vol. 22, No. 9. Thursday, August 13, 1959
The Vic team this year is a pretty likely looking group. The forwards: Jill Arnold, Mary Mills, Cynthia Baird, Janet Duncan and Rosemary Raleigh—are all fast types, ready to make the most of every opportunity—and have all situations under control.
The team is relying on a certain amount of experience from Barbara Saunders, who toured Australia with the New Zealand team
In 1957. The halves—Barbara Saunders, Barbara Berry and Janice Gumley—and the backs—Robyn Boyd and Angela Rodgers—are all strong with plenty of determination and hard hitting power.
If all else fails, there is Deirdre Meadows in goal, who seems to appear formidable to opposing forwards.
With only Doug. Edwards, the captain being a "name player" the men's basketball team sees a real danger—to all but Victoria. They won last year—and this year, well, if keenness is anything to go by the ball boys will once again triumph.
The team for the drinking horn as usual is a mystery. Doubtless, the event will take place in a Dunedin pub on Thursday afternoon. The Press, if they learn its site, will moan, if they don't learn its site they'll complain and Vic's, at present anonymous team will win the horn. Get training boys—only five more licensed days to . . .
Table Tennis and Soccer, I believe, form part of the Tournament sports, but like the Joynt Scroll and the Moots, nothing has been heard in my neck o' the woods. I trust Vic. will, as always, win the moots and scroll, but if they are as keen as they seem to be on publicity . . . then we should win the Shooting.
Enjoy your Tournament—I will.
