Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 3 March 28, 1945


The Special General Meeting last Wednesday recommended the draft specifications for the projected Students' Union Building with a few amendments, but failed to reach any decision on the raising of the Stud. Ass. fee. The meeting was poorly attended, the quorum of fifty being barely attained.

Jack Barr, in the chair, explained the procedure of the meeting. He was followed by Dick Daniell, moving that the specifications be adopted. Daniell spoke of the necessity for a suitable building, capable of lasting 250 years complete with a proper theatre with fixed seats, and a large dance hall. "Dancing is the most popular sport in the College," he said. A separate building would house the gymnasium, which could not easily be doubled with the dance hall or theatre.

Stan Campbell, seconding the motion, praised the Exec, for bringing forward these proposals, and discussed the Concourse, Cafeteria and Committee Rooms. "We must work for the future and be progressive," he said in closing. After some further explanations by the chairman the meeting was thrown open for discussion.
