Inter-Varsity Tournament At Wellington In June.

The annual Hockey Tournament commences here on the 1st. June, and finishes on the 4th with a match between a N.Z. University team and a Wellington Rep. side. Judging from the social arrangements in hand, a happy time should be had by all.

The Seniors lost two and drew one of their three opening games, but Coach Jacobsen has found some secret tactics which we are told make the other side think there are extra men on the field. The new form of attack was successful against Hutt, when a fine exhibition of combination and short passing was given, and Williams, Struthers and Denby added the finishing touches in brilliant fashion. We understand that Ken Struthers is very displeased at being photographed without his usual beatific smile. ("Dominion" photographer please note).

Mt. Bannister Or Orongorongos For Week End Strolls.

Trampers, where are you going next week-end ? There will be two trips, one fairly strenuous to Mt. Bannaster, in the North Tararuas, the other more localized is the best round trip in the Orongorongos. See the Notice Hoard for full particulars.

A Great Loss To Basket Ball Club.

Miss Mary Line's departure is mentioned elsewhere in this issue, but the Basketball Club will perhaps miss her most. As Club Captain and Captain of the senior team, she has been the personification of energy and enthusiasm, and her place will be hard to fill.

The senior team is very strong, with most of last year's players back again. It is difficult to pick individual talent from an evenly-balanced side, but brilliant play by Miss Mary Line and Miss 1 Morice in goal deserves mention.

A Brilliant Goalie!

The vacation has interfered with the "A" hockey team's combination, and after a good win against Ramblers the veteran matrons of Hutt United led 'Varsity a merry dance. Miss Nancy Webber, however, saved brilliantly time after time, and in every game this season she has played outstandingly. Miss C. Robertson and Miss M. Gibbons have also caught the eye for brilliant play, and some wins can be expected now that the team is back at full strength.

Preliminary Runs Of The Harriers.

So far the most popular outing of the season was an invitation run from Island Bay. when Mr. end

Mrs. Shorland gave afternoon tea to ail the runners. The Sherwood Cup, Three Mile Sealed Handicap will be run on the 26th.

Successful Tennis Season.

" Smad " congratulates the Senior A team on being runners-up in the Wellington Competition. The Club Championships are completed, except for the finals in the two men's events. Mr. Budge has apparently done even better than Mr. "Efficiency" Burns in hurrying the matches along. The usual Past v. Present match was played recently and an exciting match resulted in a win for the veterans by a narrow margin.

Junior Football.

In the junior grades the 4ths, under Henry Moore's gentle care, and the 3rd. C's have started the season in splendid fashion. The 3rd. C's are composed chiefly of Weir House stalwarts, and so far they have not had their line crossed. They are, of course, Very modest about this.

On the 4th June, the King's Birthday holiday, the seniors will meet St. Pats. Old Boys in the early game at; Athletic Park. This promises to be a great game. Another important fixture for the 4th. is Weir House v. Rolleston (C.U.C.), which is to be played at Christchurch.
