Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 15. July 29, 1953
The exec. has been in power for just over a month. What has it done to benefit the students as a whole? Obviously, in one month the exec. has just had time to look around and find out what needs doing; no criticism of the exec, at the moment would be fair appraisal of its potentialities. So we will confine ourselves to minor remarks on what the exec. has done so far, what it should do and cannot, and what it should do and has not yet done.
Recommendations from the A.G.M., six in number have been dealt with as follows: (a) Investigations into Salient finances referred to the Finances Committee; (b) Four shillings per head levy to be paid into the building fund—referred to the Finance Committee: (C) Cyclo-styling of the Constitution referred to Mr. Chatwin; (d) Cricket Club a motion, was passed at the first meeting of the exec, which read "That this executive supports the Cricket Club in their efforts to maintain their Independence as a senior club"; (e) Publication of Spike—referred to the Publications Committee which in turn referred the matter to the Finance Committee: (f) Distribution of Cappicade and Extrav. profits—referred to Exec.
Just what does this hocus-pocus with the various committees mean? Both the Finance and Publications Committees have since met and their detailed consideration of the various motions follows.
