Chemistry Society

Thanks to all those who helped to make the ChemSoc Party an evening to remember. The committee hopes that no-one was disappointed with the bill of fare, and that any outstanding beakers will be returned promptly


The Gremlins struck again in Salient last issue. The error was in Lawrence Law's letter "Spelling it out" where there was an accidental deletion in the third paragraph, the latter half of which should have read "....by aptly entitling it "A Christians's Comment". But what Tan did not know was the fact that the very title "A Christian's Comment" was given by me mainly for clarifying my stand - ie I am a Christian....."

Salient apologises for the error.

A Victorious Capping Cont Roller

It will by now have dawned on some of you that this week is capping week. Your lectures will have been graced with the presence of Her Royal Majesty, Queen Victoria University of Wellington, along with Paul Norman the capping controller.

Many first year students, and a great many second years, will be under the mistaken impression that Capping week is only for the lucky individuals who have managed to obtain a degree. This is not the case, the drinking horn, chunder mile, and Strauss Ball is for everyone, especially those who have entered these hallowed halls of learning for the first time.

The highlight of this year's capping activities apart from the raft race, chunder mile, capping stunts (and this year we have some crackers), will undoubtedly be the Capping Ball. Not only have the local press already shown an interest the reaction from students has been fabulous. Professor David Farchuar, of the Music Department, will conduct the Victoria University Music Society Orchestra and Good cooking, led by Russel Good will provide the lighter musical entertainment.

The ball represents an attempt to revert to the old style capping tradition, which we hope will be continued in future years. I hope to see you all participating in all the events revolving around capping, and remember that a lot of people have put much time and care into organizing these events for You.
