Accountancy Lectures At Victoria College. — Resume Again Next Year

Accountancy Lectures At Victoria College.

Resume Again Next Year.

Accountancy lectures will be resumed at Victoria College next year. It is about twelve years since they were discontinued, and Victoria has been the loser during that time. She has been the only University College in New Zealand which has not offered this course—she, indeed, in the centre of the administrative and commercial life of the Dominion. As a result, Commerce students at Victoria University College have been in the unfortunate position of having to take half of their course outside 'Varsity, and their association with the College has only been intermittent, a mutually detrimental state of affairs.

Lectures will be given in the full Accountancy Course—Auditing, three stages of Book-keeping, and the several subjects of Commercial Law. The College authorities, in their wisdom, have decided to fix the fees on a low scale tor these subjects, and, indeed, there is every inducement for Commerce students to take the course at the College. The question will be asked: "Who is the Lecturer?" and. at date, the answer cannot be given. Applications for the position are now being considered. There is this to be considered, however—that those who are selected will be the best out of many applicants, and students should not allow themselves to be prejudiced against the lecturers, by reason only that they do not rejoice in reputations accumulated over many years, for this qualification is not the unique hall-mark of ability.

Commerce students are urged to give the classes their support, and. wherever possible, to interest others to do so. The institution of these lectures at V.U.C. is a privilege which can be justified only by the loyal support of students. If the classes prove successful, as we confidently anticipate that they will, there is little doubt but that a definite step will have been taken not only in improving the status of the Commerce degree but also in enabling the University to enter into another sphere of service to the community.
