Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 7. June 9, 1943
Library Hours Crazy
Library Hours Crazy.
Library hours are worrying Exec, members. Why should the library be closed every vacation? This is not the case at other Colleges. Nor does the public library need to exclude the public for more than a quarter of the year. Particularly annoying too, just at the moment when it is so necessary that science students shouldn't waste a minute. Should they have to swot during the vacation in stuffy, noisy lodgings? Surely it is humiliating that fifty odd V.U.C. chaps should be found crowding the Public Library Reference Room, denied access for a fortnight to their own more comprehensive and useful collections.
There may be a reason for all this. The President has been directed to look into it.
Dave Cohen's and Peter Naylor's appointments to the Men's Common Room Committee were approved.
Long before Army Education was launched the Exec. was pushing for it The Question now arises as to whether the Exec. can't do more to help soldier students than it has done. A representative of the A.E.W.S. is to be invited to address the Exec.'s next meeting.
Finally, the Exec. fixed the date of the Annual General Meeting. This is to be held in the Gymnasium at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 30. The elections for the Students' Association Executive will be held on June 24, 25, and 28.
