Salient. Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 26, No. 6. Tuesday, June 4, 1963
Sir,—On the first night of "Measure For Measure" I witnessed what amounts to discrimination against part-time students. In front of me in the ticket queue was a part-timer who as a matter of course proffered six shilings for payment of his seat. I asked whether or not students were to be charged 2/6, and, if so, why not part-timers? Neither the girls at the ticket box nor the part-timer were certain how much he should pay, so finally his six shillings was accepted.
Subsequent inquiry leads me to believe that this student was unwittingly cheated. A student is to be defined, in this case, as one who has paid his Students' Association fee and is thereby a member of the Students' Association.
Thus all carrying this status, which includes part-timers, should be subject to the same relevant privileges.
So I suggest that all part-timers make certain that, in the future, they insist on this right, and that all ticket sellers make themselves acquainted with what prices they are to charge.
