Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950
Thanks to grand job done by Ben O'Connor and Anne Walker the Tournament team has been chosen.
We are lucky this year in having Anne Walker. Anne is, of course, well known in Nunnely Casket circles, but this is the first year she has been eligible for Tournament.
The team also includes Bill Young, Janet Young, Juliet Burrell, Nancy Hodder (from Otago), Gill Foden (emergency), the two Massey players. John Hutton and Terry Eady. Bill Pritchard and Bal Reddy (who incidentally won the Wellington B grade doubles championships), Harold Titter and Trevor Bacon (from Canterbury). Our strength this year will lie in the doubles games, and practice for the team has already begun.
The Tennis Club has had an invitation to go up to Palmerston North and play Massey on their own ground (Massey having come down here for Tournament trials). A team of eight will go up on Saturday, March 25. at some primitive early hour, and will return on Sunday night.
The Club is also active in other directions trying to raise money for the Central Park Courts. It has run a Beginning-of-the-Year dance and a picture evening on March 21.
Freshers' Welcome Tournament, a Knockout championship (for either Freshers or the Committee) will probably be held on Saturday, March 25, so watch the notice board for-details.
