Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 9. May 9th, 1950


And So the whole grisly business of Capping Week, Procesh and Extrav has ended for another year. And some there be who lift up their small voices in a fervent "thank God."

It seemed at first as though we would have a reasonably good Procesh. A lot of people spent a lot of time preparing their floats—the Weir house mob and the Chem boys in particular—the weather was good enough, the distribution of Cappicades was very successful—thanks to the labours of Messrs. Hurley and Cook and their many helpers—a fair crowd of citizens turned out to watch the fun, and yet despite all these favourable portents, the whole affair tended to leave rather a bad taste in many mouths . . . due to the efforts of those nameless irresponsibles who bespattered the not so amused by standers with flour, water and the occasional coll of seaweed. Someone should have remembered that flour and water form a paste which is apt to spoil people's clothing.
