Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950
The Club has now settled down to training for the Easter tournament and there la soma very solid rowing going on now. Whenever possible the crews are up and in at Star sheds by 6 (yes six) a.m. and are thus able to get a good row in while conditions are at their beat. As well as this there are training rows in the evening and it is rumoured that fairly soon some P.T. classes will be starting. The crews for the eight, four and double scull for tournament have not yet been chosen but will probably be anounced soon after this issue goes to print. Then it will be over to coach Stan Gillen to beat the crew into shape. Among new-comers to the club is Ivan Vodanovitch who has twice gained a New Zealand University Blue for rowing and previously rowed for Canterbury and Auckland. He is attending lectures at Victoria in the School of Social Science this year and we are full of hopes that his experience and skill will be able to inspire the crews to victory at Easter Tournament. More news when the crews are chosen. . . .
