Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 3. May 3, 1944

We Never Meet?

We Never Meet?

Have you ever stopped to consider that up till now we have met as a student body, in a social atmosphere, only once a year at the Undergraduates' Supper? Certainly we meet to transact formal business at general meetings of the Association, and we have dances and debates, but at none of these gatherings is there a fine interchange of personalities.

These functions largely fill the needs they set out to meet, but we have other needs. A debate presents us with the views of a few people on a few subjects and may or may not represent their true beliefs. A dance is only for those who can or want to dance, and in any case the opportunities for conversation about ideas are more limited than the outlets for the discussion of personalities. A tea dance is a good place to gather after an afternoon's sport, but there is a limit to the number of people you can dance with, and who wants to talk while they're dancing, anyway?

Wanted—A hot contralto, for close harmony.
