Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 5. May, 7, 1947
Dear Sir,—It seems to me that Tournament plays an important enough part in student affairs to deserve an accurate write-up. I was glad to see, and would like to compliment "Salient" on the excellent reporting of the NZUSA Conference, but would like to have seen the same care extended to Tournament. The arrangements for Tournament used up a lot of my time, but I would gladly have given more for an accurate report.
However. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation of the way our representatives bore with those two wearying journeys, and of the cheerfulness and helpfulness of all concerned. It is no small tribute to VUC team members that they were so successful under such conditions.
The amazing feat of Stan Campbell in getting the teams to Auckland; the work of the Junior Delegate, Brian Sutton-Smith, or Denis Griffin, Miss Patterson, Miss Rosie and the cafeteria staff and all club secretaries should go on record.
In conclusion, I will add an appeal to all club secretaries and team members in the future. Keep in close contact with your Tournament Delegates. A detail that seems small to you can prove shattering to the nerves of a harrassed delegate—particularly in times of crisis such as Tournament 1947.
P. G. Morris, Senior Tournament Delegate.
