Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University Wellington. Vol. 23. No. 1. 1960

Writing For Cappicade ?

Writing For Cappicade ?

Is it possible that students have nothing more to say to the community? Have our local and national dignitaries become paragons of virtue and wisdom that they have no need of a friendly kick in the pants at Capping time? Have our responsibilities become so disrespectful that they can laugh at themselves without assistance? Has our vast learning left in us no spark of humour, of interest, of revolutionary ardour—of illusion or disillusion; of lyrical expostulation; In fact, of the things that make a good Cappicade?

Is it possible that vibrant, vital, vivacious, vexatious students could resist a guaranteed public of upwards of 20,000? The tumultuous reply thunders in our ears—Yes, Yes. Yes. Yes.

Cappicade editors would like to be editors, not writers. Yet their table has been so empty of copy they have had to go out and buy bread.

Your editors are sensitive, lovable people. They suffer as much as anybody when their blood, sweat and tears go unhonoured, unsung and even criticised. They would like to share this weighty responsibility with a few authors—or others.

Talent is by no means a prerequisite. You can go almost anywhere without it.

The themes for "Cappicade 1960" are likely to be rugby, Rongotai, reclamation, branch universities and any other subjects deemed worthy of wit—or other comment.

Please hand your writings, drawings, photographs and etchings in to "Cappicade," c/o Exec; or ring one of your editors for details, inspiration or amusement. They are:

Dave Halley Ph. 28-324

Mike Corballis Ph. 78-323

Tony Reid Ph. 81-677

P.S. Forget that bit about "un-honoured and unsung." There are juicy, lovely prizes for prose, poetry and cartoons. £3, £1 and £1 are the prizes in each category, with a £10 prize for the cover design.
