Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 14. July 12, 1939
It is very much regretted that in this issue of "Salient" the section devoted to sport has been reduced considerably. This was by no means the wish of the Sports Editor, and it is felt that an apology is duo to all those who so willingly assisted by contributing club notes and other articles for which insufficient space could be found.
Whether or not the space allotted is sufficient to cover the wide range of club activities, is, I suppose, a debatable point—depending on one's interest in University sport. For some, I know, sport has little appeal—just as, for others, overseas politics can be nothing but boring. Again, there is the accusation that the youth of to-day centres everything around sport. In part this may be true, but in many cases an active interest in sport finishes with the close of a secondary school career. For such as these there is no excuse, for they miss much in life that should be theirs, and we can do no better than remind them of the old motto: "Mens sana in corpore sano"—"clean in sport, clean in body, clean in mind."
