Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University of Wellington. Vol. 24, No. 5. 1961

Function of Capping Committee

Function of Capping Committee

The regulations governing the Capping Committee state that it is: "to arrange, produce and control and manage the annual Capping celebrations, including the social functions, Capping procession, Cappicade, Extravaganza, and all other functions usually connected with or which may reasonably be held in conjunction with such celebrations."

Extravaganza is now well on the road to another smash hit. It is under the expert guidance of Latham Stubbs as organiser, Jeff Stewart as producer, Dave Lind-Mitchell as assistant producer, and John Sadlier as script writer. Latham will be well remembered by those who saw him starring last year in "I Once Was a Jolly Sailor!" This year he tells me he will not make the same mistake! Plenty of old faces—Margo Sutherland, Peter Coates, Ted Loftus, John Koolman, Phil Levy, John Tannahill (the oldest face of them), Bob Fisher—and many lovely fresh ones can be seen along at the rehearsals. Extrav. will run for 10 nights in Wellington in May. The show will then be taken on a tour of the provinces—namely, to New Plymouth.

Procesh. is under the happy guidance of Paul (call me Capone) Spencer. Those of you who were lucky enough to see last year's Extrav. will remember him as the dopiest of the two Union bodyguards. Paul has many new and interesting ideas for Procesh and the feeling is that this year's could be even better than last year's turn-out. However, I cannot stress too heavily that the success of Procesh., and consequently the improving of Town-Gown relationships, depends on You.—You must supply the initiative, the ideas and, most important, the floats. So put those thinking caps on now and let Paul have those ideas. Let us make this year's Procesh the best ever. If we are unable to better Festival's Procesh there must be something wrong with 'varsity students these days.

In the very near future Paul will be calling a meeting together of all interested bodies, so keep your eyes on the notice hoards for further particulars.

Prizes will of course again be awarded for the best entrants.
