Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 1 March 28, 1944

Student Labour in the Long Vacation

Student Labour in the Long Vacation

The motion passed by the A.G.M. that a "deputation should be sent to the Director of Manpower and the Minister of Education to ensure better utilisation of students in wartime with special reference to the long vacation," was considered by the Executive and the conclusion reached that a deputation not equipped with concrete examples of student labour misused would be worse than useless, so colleges have been asked to submit such examples, but with the exception of Otago, have been slow in doing so. Individual students of V.U.C. are hereby requested to bring to the notice of the V.U.C. Executive any cases where they considered the work into which they were manpowered in the 1943-44 vacation was not of national importance or not occupying them as well as they were capable of being occupied for the short period from a national point of view.
