Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 2. March 26, 1941

Secret Ballot

Secret Ballot.

More fun over the election of officers. Mr. Foley conducted a most undignified argument from the Chair with members of the audience on the subject of Patron. However it was decided that the Governor-General would look pretty on the books, so they let that pass (did it signify?). Mr. Foley then hemmed a little; knew the Constitution didn't provide for Vice-Patrons, but it was always decorative to have several about the place. He recommended several Professors, then O. E. Burton was suggested. It was decided to adhere to the Constitution.

After arbitrarily appointing scrutineers, the Chair was called to order by the meeting which demanded that scrutineers be constitutionally elected. So three startled freshers and an old hand, Mr. Jack, proceeded to conduct everything constitutionally.
