New Sports Body

The newly-formed N.Z.U. Sports Union will relieve Resident Exec. (of N.Z.U.S.A.) of much of its sporting work, and will take on more work not previously done by anyone.

It will inject new life into N.Z.U. sports by actively encouraging each Sports Council to elect a committee to function all year—not just at Tournament—and will assist these to undertake any projects.

The Sports Union will also relieve the host college of much of its secretarial work associated with Tournament. If will investigate sporting problems at the university—tournament billeting and extra tournament finance, for example, he won an N.Z.U. blue, and has also represented N.Z.U. on the tennis court.

The Union is headed by Alan Robinson, himself a distinguished N.Z.U. sportsman He is three times N.Z.U. table tennis champion, a sport in which he won a N.Z.U. blue, and has also represented N.Z.U. on the court.

Other members of the Exec. have not yet been chosen, but it is intended to make selections from among prominent University sportsmen with administrative experience.

"Salient" believes that the Sports Union can do much for the University player, and wishes Alan Robinson and his team every success in their difficult activities behind the scene.
