J. A. Tannahill

John is 20 years of age and a member of the Law Faculty. Educated at New Plymouth Boys' High School, this is his fourth year as a student at university, and his record shows he has a great knowledge of university student life.

In 1956, as a member of the university Drama Club he played an active role in the production of "The Critic." In the same year he was a member of the Tournament soccer team. He was also an active member of the Golf Club. In 1957 and 1958 he was in Extravaganza and he is taking a great interest in that production again.

His academic career at university is also excellent. He has only six units to complete in his law degree, and last year he won the Robert McCallum Scholarship awarded annually for the best all-round performance in the final examinations in four law units.

He was a member of Weir House for two years, has boarded privately as a student, and is now living in a flat and has a good knowledge of student boarding problems.

To improve the interests of the students' social life at University is one of his main ideals. He also believes a general all-round improvement in executive and general administration at university in the interests of the students can be attained.
