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.

—I am, etc.,

Anthony Haas.
