Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 7, No. 5 June 21, 1944

Exec. Elections on Friday — Full List of Nominees

Exec. Elections on Friday

Full List of Nominees

In presenting the nominees for the 1944-5 Executive of the Students' Association, "Salient" has three objects in view: To prevent haphazard crossing of unknown names in the polling booths; to give as accurate a resume of the College positions held and activities of the nominees as is possible; and to elicit more votes than the two hundred and twenty-five cast last year. A few months ago half the Wellington electorate turned out to vote in a new Municipal Council; is it too much to hope that as large a proportion of students will take the trouble to exercise their democratic and constitutional rights?

Before filling the hat for 1944, we print the personnel of our retiring Executive, five of whom are accepting re-nomination:—
  • President: Sgt. O. J. Creed.
  • Secretary: Mrs. M. B. Boyd.
  • Assistant Secretary: Miss M. Eichelbaum.
  • Treasurer: J. Barr.
  • Assistant Treasurer: C Edgar.
  • Men's Vice-President: L. J. R. Starke.
  • Women's Vice-President: Miss D. Filmer.
  • Committee:

    Miss A. Eichelbaum.

    Miss J. M. Grant.

    Miss P. Wilton.

    M. Te Punga.

    J. W. Winchester.

    Mr. R. M. Daniell was co-opted in the place of R. Oliver.

  • Council Representative: M. L. Boyd.

This Executive was given certain clear directions at our last annual general meeting, and while it has brought none of them to completion, a great deal of steady work has been done. An outstanding achievement of our 1943 Executive lies in the establishment of a "Student Health Scheme." This campaign brought about the successful inauguration of our medical service largely for three reasons: the enthusiasm and ability of Miss Filmer and her committee; the obvious necessity for some form of medical examination; and the wholehearted co-operation with which the student body took up the matter. Which brings us to our main point. The executive committee of any students' association is well-named. Its main business is with routine matters, its twelve members cannot organise mass movements without the most complete co-operation, activity and enthusiasm of the students. In short, if you want your executive to do anything. If you wish to argue with the powers that be, choose carefully from the nominees, go along and vote for your choice, and when an issue comes where the Exec. needs your support, get up and give it, as strenuously as you can.
