The scores of Societies in the University, are generally known by students, and in general, appreciated. It is not so true of Clubs and groups outside Vic. The student may be aware of their existence, but unfortunately, has no idea of what they do, where they meet, and so on. Two Societies that would be of benefit to students, are the Wellington Recorded Music Society and the Wellington Film Society. The former, as is obvious, is concerned with the enjoyment of recorded music. It offers monthly meetings, free monthly Bulletin, advice on records and equipment, a members' record exchange, and etc. The Society can be highly recommended to everyone interested in discs. The programmes offered are varied and cover a wide field. Often, guest speakers are invited along; at a recent meeting, two members of our National Orchestra talked and discussed, with excellent recommendation. If you are interested in joining, or wish to pop along for an evening, either contact the Fine Arts Editor, or write P.O. Box 5086, Wellington. The Wellington Film Society has started its monthly Sunday screenings, with Bachelor Party and Killer's Kiss as the first run. There will be three more screenings this year, and programmes, reduced subscription or nightly tickets, may be had from the Fine Arts Editor. Next month the screening will consist of Little World of Don Camillo and The Captain's Paradise: remember—reductions for students.
