Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 15. July 29, 1953

A Celebration

A Celebration

The last meeting of the exec. was one with a special significance for two members of the exec. Elaine Foote and Trev Turner, who were celebrating their 21sts; but we anticipate.

The revised budget as presented by the finance committee allows an extra £50 for "Salient" expenses (total for this year £350. last year £300). reduction in club grants of £160. provision for Capping and Extrav losses of £200. and an increase of £100 in Students Association fees (total next year £4500). A loss of £20 on "Salient" literary issue was expected, and £50 was reserved towards the cost of pulling out "Spike" next year.

Last year, £1860 was budgeted for club grants, of which £1200 was to be for winter clubs (and £900 has already been granted). £100 was spent on the golf, hockey. International Students and badminton clubs.

A travelling subsidy for members of Winter Tournament was granted to the extent of £I/5/- each. Mr. Trev Mill was given Tournament status as President of the N.Z.U.S.N.A., and two "Salient" Tournament reporters were approved.

The Official meeting concluded at 11.15 p.m. and a suitable presentation to the pair was made. Then came supper, and amidst an atmosphere sphere of oysters and beer the following quips came to our ear from a group to one side: "Chatwin can't alter Our constitutions" (two nice young women): "Fat men have a lot of feeling . . ." (Miss Thom): "Nothing wrong with Tim Beaglehole's hair, but it's nothing like his brother's!": "So you would say that the body exists to support the hair .. ." (Ian Free). We left at 1230 having partaken of what news there was.
