Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 18. September 20, 1939
The meeting supported the idea of Student Congress, but the matter was referred back to the individual colleges for further investigation as it was considered that unless concrete proposals were forthcoming interest could not be adequately gauged.
The N.Z.U. Press Bureau was granted affiliation.
A sub-committee was set up at A.U.C. to investigate examination conditions. Apparently in provincial centres much lattitude is allowed examinees. Also such things as the selection of supervisors, writing paper, ink, and other unhappy et ceteras wore the subject of adverse comment. The report is to be referred to the Registrar.
A tour of Australian University athletes has been arranged for 1940. A strong team is being sent. C.U.C. recommended the inclusion of a pole vaulter.
In addition to athletes a debating team will make a 4 to 5 weeks' tour in June and July, 1940. An endeavour will be made to have public lectures Included in the programme and, subject to the consent of both parties, the debates will be on a decision basis.
Many alterations and additions were proposed by V.U.C. to the Joynt Scroll rules. And the suggestions were referred back to the colleges for consideration. They were chiefly concerned with the more efficient functioning of the contest.
The national student publication, "Rostrum," is to be continued annually, being published about the middle of July. The publication has been well received and it is estimated that over 1.000 copies will be sold. Editor Amies wag congratulated on his effort.
