Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 10. July 19, 1957
Already well publicised in our dailies was the A.G.M.'s decision to only accept offers of accommodation from people who were willing to take students irrespective of race. The interesting feature of discussion was not the general acceptance of this idea, hut the vocal minority (including several Exec.-elect members) who opposed the motion Moreover their arguments were not the fairly sound one that there is a world of difference between boarding someone who has the same background and culture and someone whose way of life is quite understandably very different. Instead they argue purely on the grounds that this motion might love us some accommodation. Naturally these arguments were soundly rejected as compromising principles.
