Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 8 June 27, 1945
"I now wish to put a motion which will appear to many radical, even revolutionary" (cries of "No! No! Shame!"), Bald Mr. O'Brien, recommending that the incoming Executive take up the possibility of a site for the entire University in the Adelaide Road rebuilding area. "We must give thought for the students of twenty years hence before we fix the position of our new building." Mr. Winchester: "Have you provided for a cemetery nearby?" Mr. O'Brien: "The Basin Reserve will probably suffice." (Voice: "Scoreboard, too!") Mr. Barr pointed out that the Council had, in all probability, given considerable thought to the question of available sites. After further discussion the motion was passed on the understanding that enquiries would be made as to the Council's researches into the matter.
Fatigue on the part of the customers prohibiting any further business, Mr. Barr announced the results of the elections. The evening closed with a upper for past and future Executives.
