In the Backet ...

With such a heavy emphasis throughout on the responsibilities we are faced with and the values with which we can meet them, the University Forum became the scene of keen debate on what could be done, in the end resolutions were passed, to be sent on to N.Z.U.S.A. for approval and implementation, with the following objects in view:—
(1)To improve the mechanisms of our own university by the set ting up of Appointments Boards, the appointment of Student Counsellors, the institution of Orientation Weeks and the Rationalisation and increase of Bursaries.
(2)To preserve the independence of thought in the University by protosting against Police checks on Student activities.
(3)To put forward some practical suggestions for the preservation of peace, foremost of which is the admission to United Nations of all nations seeking it.

Furthermore, a collection was taken for Student Relief in Wit-waterstand, which realised £34/12/- in cash. And last, but by no means least, the Congress Forum recommended that all reference to liquor in the Congress rules be deleted, and the fact recognised that the moral responsibility rests with students themselves and not with an overburdened Controller.
