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



March 22, 1961.

Professor Norman Davis is at present Professor of English Language at Oxford University. He spent, several days at Victoria University on his way to revisit his home city, Dunedin. Two public addresses were given on "The Continuity of Early English Prose" (Monday, March 2t"), and on "Early English Letter Writers" (Tuesday. March 21).

On Tuesday evening a party was held for him in the Staff Common Room, and the English honours students were able to meet him. He spoke briefly on the current expansion of the English universities. Since students there must apply for enrolment, the numbers and distribution of the university population can be much more controlled.
