Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 9 July 14, 1943
As important occasion and one which merits more space than we have available. However, to make a short story shorter . . .
The I.S.S., as you all know, is an international organisation for the collection of books and funds for refugees or prisoner of war students in all countries. The New Zealand end has now been put on a more work-manlike basis by the formation of a permanent committee. Our part in this is to provide three V.U.C. members and a chairman from Exec. (Miss Pam Wilton elected). Three T.C. students are also to be elected.
So much difficulty has been experienced over the proposed "Tunisia" parcels that these have had to be dropped and a permanent committee is to be formed under Miss Durie Maysmore to put some heartfelt endeavour into the Christmas batch. The patriotic packing department have run out of tin and chocolate, and biscuits are unobtainable; the only method will be to buy small quantities right from the jump—the more helpers in this the better—how about giving a hand?
The report of the annual general meeting was deferred, but in order to keep matters moving Mr. Jim Winchester, whose lead and helping hand seems to be strongly missed, has been put in charge of National Savings. The group organisation will be published when complete.
