Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 7 July 26, 1944



Since the last notice in Salient, the plans for the reorganisation of the Boxing Club have been pushed ahead Messrs. O'Connor, McGill, and Menzies, in provisional committee, have prepared a vigorous plan of campaign, and the season may be said to be well and truly open.

What are we going to do? First we are going to build up the club with a view to putting up a really competent team for Tournament. Secondly, arrange, if it is desirable, bouts with other gyms., and thirdly secure adequate finance with which to purchase a punchbag. However, the most important aim is to introduce new men to boxing and to reintroduce boxing to those who have abandoned the game.

Yes—we know what you think—that you will come and find yourself a shorn lamb among wolves. Make no error, this is not a hurried tournament training school for skilled boxers. We will teach you to box from scratch and you'll like being taught. We have an excellent coach, who will look after you, be your name Jack Dempsey, or Clarence Fitznoodle.

Where and when? Top floor of the Gym., 7.45 p.m. every Monday night, and we extend a special welcome to Training College students.
