Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 7. 1965.
The loss of £400 on orientation activities seemed an enormous sum compared with the cost of other larger functions, Social Controller Mike Hirschfeld said at the June 8 meeting of the Executive.
Treasurer Kevin Tate said all accounts were not yet in. Some of the £400 was taken up by expenses such as the orientation supplement of Salient.
It was decided, on the motion of secretary Alister Taylor, to once more ask orientation controller Richard Ronald to come before the executive.
A request for the removal of "Gunk" posters from city lamp posts was received from the Wellington City Council. Legal action was threatened in the case of a recurrence. The matter was passed on to the Extravaganza 65 publicity manager.
A letter of resignation from the Returning Officer, Margaret Cooper, was accepted by the meeting. In her resignation, Miss. Cooper said: "I am sick and tired of being the Aunt Sally for every promising little student bureaucrat. Find yourselves another coconut shy with my blessing!"
