Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 9. June 7, 1939
Hockey, a game formerly frowned upon by Weir, has now come into its own. With the entry of a team in this year's fourth grade competition, Weir House can now boast of participation in all fields of Varsity Sport. Although most of the members of the team had never handled a hockey stick before the performances so far have been excellent. The first two games played with a fully representative team from members of the House resulted in victories against Wellington. 2-0 and against Petone, 5-1. Now that the holidays have ended and the team is again fully mustered, it is probable that the early promise shown will be continued. Cook, Rutherfurd, and Culliford are prominent in the forwards and half-backs, and Moss and Barton have been towers of strength in the back line.
