Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 7. 1965.
An approach to Mr. Biggs, the caretaker of the Student Union building, on the question of damage to furniture revealed the following interesting statistics:
In 1962 57 chairs and six settees required repairs; in 1963 107 chairs and 10 settees required repairs, and in 1964 130 chairs, 14 settees and two table needed attention.
The caretakers and the Managing Secretary alike are becoming increasingly concerned about the amount of damage done, chiefly, they say, by student misuse. Evidently even the policing of the SUB by House Committee members is proving ineffective, so it will be interesting to see what measures are next resorted to.
