Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 6. May 26, 1943
The little known institution, known as N.Z.U.P.B. to a selected few met on the same week-end as the N.Z.U.S.A. Composed of representatives of the papers of the four Colleges, It forms a focal point for the exchange of views. This year a variety of motions were considered. Auckland brought down a motion favouring its abolition (not carried). The question of censorship was discussed with particular reference to Otago, as being most experienced in this respect.
The national centre this year is to be Christchurch, which gives them the responsibility of editing "Rostrum." This is the magazine of the four centres, and students are welcome to write for it. They may forward their contributions per "Salient."
Besides this the question of investing N.Z.U.P.B. funds (if any) in N.Z. Co-operative Publishing shares was considered, and Christchurch will look into this matter.
The number of subjects of topical importance to students—student health, rehabilitation and similar topics, prompted the Otago representatives to recommend that a sub-committee be formed to investigate the possibility of publishing such pamphlets, and the Victoria delegates Beverley Williamson and Cecil Crompton, were asked to investigate and take action in the matter.
The possibility of a faster exchange of inter-College news was also discussed, particularly on matters of general student interest.
