Jean Melling

Jean, an Arts student, was a member of the Executive 1945-47, and was Corresponding Member to N.Z.U.S.A. 1945-46. She has been a committee member of the Tramping. Miniature Rifles and Hockey Clubs and is on the Debating Committee for the fourth time—this year as secretary. Jean has been Cafeteria Controller since March, 1947, Capping Ball Controller 1946-7-8, and Acting-Editor of Salient since April. She was coauthor and assistant producer of this year's Extrav., was responsible for the collection for the U.N. Children's Appeal at the Opera House, and was largely responsible for the organization of the Napier trip. A keen hockey player, Jean captained the Senior Reserve team last year.

Jean is keen to push ahead the plans to raise money for the new Student Association Building in order to provide adequate cafeteria and other facilities for students as soon as possible, and is emphatic that it is a student responsibility to help raise the funds. She was responsible for the initial action in the Medical Scheme which was approved by [unclear: a] general meeting of the Association last year. She is particularly keen to see the Health Scheme become a permanent feature of student life.
