Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 9. June 7, 1939
The novice race run three weeks ago produced two likely runners in Caird and Colling wood, who finished fourth and sixth respectively. Both these men will continue to improve, and both should do well in inter club races. At Karori, Caird was running easily with the fast pack and impresses as a runner who would be quite at home on a rough day.
Morpeth is out again after a spell or a season. His fifth in the Sherwood was good work, and he was quite at home with the best at Tawa Flat. Powell is another new runner of whom more should be heard. With training both of these men will be in the first fight.
The Club is unfortunate in losing Jack Northey, who is being transferred to Auckland. He had just reached the stage when he would have been a valuable asset and he will be missed in inter-club events.
Inter-club racing will soon be with us and all members are exhorted to do some training. Some of the old hands who should know better are leaving their preliminary work too late. Take notice, Varsity Harriers, that the Dome Cup will be held on 24th June, and the club team should fill one of the minor placings!! In any case, how much more you enjoy the sport if you are fit.
Next Saturday the club is sending a team of eight runners to Dannevirke to compete in a 6¼ mile inter-club race there. The rest of the members will run from Varsity gymnasium, not from Thorndon as stated in the syllabus.
