Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 5. 1965.
ASK any student what the general public thinks of students and the answer will undoubtedly either be unprintable or at any rate to the effect that we are an "unloved bunch." It was with this image in mind that I set out to uncover the motives of the management of "Pierre's Coiffures" in offering students concessions in the vicinity of 25-30 per cent. The result was a pleasant surprise. It seems that post student-salon relationships have been cordial and that in response to tales of economic plight told under a hair-dryer, "Pierre's" has offered concessions on the production of student identification. With the ball season coming up this offer will undoubtably be of mutual benefit to both salon and students. This seems to be ample proof that we are not as "unloved" in the city as we think we are. Perhaps now all that is needed is for our executive members, all beautified at concession prices, to approach the; Prime Minister on the subject of governmental concessions —for who could resist such a thus lovely bunch.—Anne Jamieson.
