Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 6. 1966.
Mr. Prim Harris, travel director of NZUSA, has tendered his resignation, Salient learned on Wednesday just prior to going to press.
Mr. Harris said that he was quitting because of "a total lack of co-operation all around."
"I've had my stomach full," he said.
Ross Mountain, president of NZUSA. was unavailable for comment because he was travelling to Manila.
When asked to comment on Mr. Harris's statements, Carol Bohmer. travel vice-president of NZUSA, said that he "had falsified the case." She declined to elaborate, pending the return of Mr. Mountain in two weeks' time.
"There has been a lot of hush-hush going on." Mr. Harris said. He says he will remain on the job for about two weeks in order to help his replacement with the details of the Travel Bureau.
According to informed sources. Mr. Harris will receive six weeks' termination pay, but Miss Bohmer declined to say whether this' meant Harris's resignation had been asked for.
NZUSA will not appoint another travel director to the £1500 per year post, the same source reported. Instead, Miss Bohmer and Miss Esther Aarons, secretary to NZUSA, will assume the travel director's duties.
