Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 4 March 29, 1939
For two hours the spending or £60 old pound had been discussed. Almost till midnight them was a struggle as to whether the Students' Association should be robbed of a like amount. That was the Intention of those Training College students who turned up in such unexpected force. For two hours Mr. Vogt tried to choke our president with his own constitution. The position was that if a show of hands was taken the T.C.'s, in the belief that they were numerically stronger, hoped to alter the constitution and reduce the Students' Association fee by ten shillings for their own members. But notice of motion must be given. For one and three-quarter hours that was undecided. Mr. Edgley had arranged a postal ballot.
But was a sectional interest to dominate the College? After indescribable exhibitions of had [unclear: taste], a motion was at last put. The financial stability of the S.A. was preserved by 13 heads. "The voting on the issue: "That a ballot be held to decide [unclear: tan]question of a reduction in the Students' Association fee for T.C. students by 10/-" was 43 to 30. and after another motion: "that the executives of the T.C.S.A. and the V.U.C.S.A. draw up a statement of the difference between the respective bodies over the matter of fees" was carried, the exhausted combatants crept home.
Finally, the Capping Procession will not be held this year, and arrangements are being made for a night "Meetings Tonight" Notice Board in the hall.—J.W.
