Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 18. September 20, 1939

On Health

On Health

A preliminary report by an Otago University sub-committee on Health Facilities at each university was considered. It was felt that the question warranted a more detailed investigation, and consequently the Otago University sub-committee will draw up a comprehensive questionnaire, that will be circulated throughout the colleges. Also the Dean of the Medical Faculty will be approached to ascertain whether a medical student could not take "student health" as the subject for a thesis. Even this preliminary report indicates that many of the university faculties are outmoded and scanty and certainly not conducive to the best well-being of the student.

With regard to the transfer of students between colleges it was moved and carried "that in any such case the students' Student Association foe be considered as paid at the now college on production of a certificate from the former college."

In conclusion it was moved and carried "that this meeting recommends, in the event of war breaking out, that the Government takes steps to prevent profiteering and other associated evils."
