[photo caption competition]

Salient otters a prize to the person who thinks of the best overline for this picture.

Here's some inspiration:

The photo, by Robert Joiner, catches Rosamund Barclay and John Jeffries in their nightshirts.

These are some of 300 long, green, varsitymonogrammed night shirts bought by the Student's Assn. and now being sold at the Association office at cost price, $4.50.

It all started when the former secretary, Larry Stenswick, pushed the idea. In June the then executive passed a resolution to buy them.

In July, the new president, Doug White, moved that the order be cancelled, but was over-ruled by 12 votes to one after Larry made a speech to the effect that the nightshirts would make Victoria "a personalised affair."

"Students will be advertising the University even when they are in bed," he said.

Entries must be in the hands of the editor of Salient by Friday.

They will be judged by him in co-operation with whoever happens to be having lunch with him.

The Prize? A nightshirt.
