Cliff Terry

Cliff, a qualified accountant, is at present studying for B.A. part-time. A member of the Tennis Club, and may be seen at most debates.

Other interests include Historical Society, down-town Economic Society. Drama, etc.

Cliff is opposed to any further increases in Student Assn. and Examination Fees, and this end will work for N.Z.U. representation on the Senate.

With the present buoyant state of the national economy he believes that the time is both overdue and opportune to press for increased and value of bursaries and greater government grants to all Universities.

He favours a Common Common Room in fact rather than in name, and wants an immediate start to the new Student Assn. Building.

Supports retention of Winter Tournament which he believes should include Drama, Debating, etc. Favours extension of Hostel accommodation, and use of Health Department's voluntary X-ray scheme as a first step towards a medical scheme.

As a mature, tolerant accountant, not tied to any pressure group, Cliff is the logical choice for Treasurer.

Nominator: Bruce Mercer.
