Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 1. Friday, March, 2, 1945
In this year of our Lord, 1945, the new building is in sight. Two things can expedite its commencement: a swifter enlargement of the fund, and a concrete decision on the amenities which the block is to provide. The Special General Meeting will be asked to vote upon two motions presented by representatives of the Exec.
That the Stud. Ass. fee be raised to 32/6 per annum, the increased revenue to be devoted to the Building Fund.
Moved by Mr. McDowall, seconded by Mr. Bogle.
The present fee is twenty-five shillings. This increase will allow eleven and sixpence per student per year to the Building Fund.
That the specifications for the new building be as set out below.
Moved by Mr. Darnell, seconded by Mr. Campbell. Discussion and voting to be taken clause by clause.
The new building can be in our time, If we Work for it. This meeting is only the beginning. Later in the year the Exec. hopes to inaugurate a full-scale finance drive. If the mooted procession becomes a reality, all profits from this year's Extrav, will go to the Building Fund. Into this, as into all other methods of raising finance, the full weight of student effort must be flung. This is felt to be one of the most important general meetings in the history of the Association and an attendance of at least five hundred is thought possible. The place, our present Student Union Building, i.e., the Gym. The time, 8 p.m. Bring this paper with you.
