Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 3. April 13, 1946
Dear Sir,—In view of comments on the non-appearance of the Information Booklet for Freshers, some explanation is necessary.
Material for the booklet was called for early in December. An agreement was made with the publishers that if the material was handed over by January 20 they would have it ready for distribution by February 20. By January 1, half of the reports were still outstanding and fresh contact was therefore made with all secretaries. There were several clubs who apparently did not intend to make Freshers aware of their existence.
When January 20 came reports were still missing, but as some were definitely promised, I held up the booklet a week longer. The material was finally handed over one week later, sufficient to upset the printer's schedule.
Six club reports have been reprinted from the previous year and are likely to contain inaccurate information. Students—the next time you elect a secretary, please take an intelligent interest and remember that a sense of responsibility is a desirable qualification.
Margaret I. McKenzie.
