Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 4, No. 6. June 18, 1941



The only excitement about the run from Thorndon on May 31st was the fact that, despite the unremitting efforts of two amateur sleuths, a sneak-thief managed to get away with a few wallets and things from certain unfortunate members of the Club whose clothes were parked near the door.

On June 17th the Club travelled to Paekakariki to run the Sherwood Cup. Eighteen runners were sent to a good start and were well bunched when they hit the road, but F. O'Flynn and G. Rowberry went out into the lead on the flat with R. Daniell not far behind Across the sandhills back to the golf-course, O'Flynn took the lead from Daniell, to win by 50 yards with I. Morton coming up well to finish in third place from T. E. Dorman. On the revised times the winner of the Sherwood Cup proved to be R. Hunt, a young runner who finished seventh, and who should prove a real acquisition for the Club.
