Capping And The Student Union Building

Capping And The Student Union Building

Capping, as you will well know, is the one time of the year when students are able to "let off steam" with a minimum of public disapproval. I realise this, and hope you enjoy yourselves, but I also want to appeal to you to act with responsibility and civility during the next few weeks.

There Is A Particular Reason For My Asking This.

As many students are well aware a final appeal will be launched shortly, by the University Council and the Student-' Association, in an effort bo completely furnish and equip the Union Building.

Over the last year my Executive and the Capping Committee has endeavoured to foster the best possible relations with the City fathers and business community. I know that this work will have been completely in vain should there a repetition of any of the less pleasant episodes that have been associated with Capping in the past. If there is trouble our Civic standing will deteriorate, making. in turn, our future appeal extremely difficult.

I hope that the co-operation I am calling for will be recognised as essential and be immediately forthcoming.

J. D. Hercus,

President, V.U.W. Students' Association.
