Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 11, No. 7. June 23rd, 1948
Maurice is a law student, secretary of the Political Science Society, acting-President of the Catholic Students' Guild, has participated in debates, and is a member of the Law-Faculty Club. He supports the campaign for the Building Fund; and any movement in the College which has as its aim the improvement of student amenities. To support this aim, he supports a closer liaison between the Executive and affiliated clubs.
For the co-ordination of club activities, it seems desirable that a system whereby meetings of all clubs would be posted on the one board, so that any clash of speakers and subjects would be avoided.
Maurice also believes that the university should be brought closer to the community. He advocates the appointment of a member, responsible to the Executive, to handle ail relations between the Association and the Press.
This is particularly important in the Jubilee year, when it is essential not only that the past should be fittingly celebrated, but that the future should be assured by an increasing realization by the people of New Zealand of the valuable part that the University and its students can play in national life.
