Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 7 July 2, 1941

What, A-Gain?

What, A-Gain?

The business of the meeting really began when Mr. Pat. Ongley entered the ring armed with four motions that we semed to remember from last year. Mr. Ongley's first speech was rather spoilt by football noises, and the fact of the audience moving en bloc from the back of the room to the front. The first motion, which would have introduced new restrictions with regard to membership of the Association, was thrown out by an overwhelming majority after we had been treated to a few bright and hostile speeches. The same fate was met by Mr. Ongley's second and third motions, dealing with the filling of vacancies on the Executive, and the question of the vote of the assistant secretary and assistant treasurer. The fourth motion proposing longer voting hours met with some sympathy, but nevertheless was defeated convincingly.
