Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 12. September 19, 1945
At a special general meeting on Wednesday last, September 12, after ninety minutes of mild debate the motion that the Stud. Ass. fee be raised 7/6, was passed by a vote of 57 to 7.
There was little direct opposition to the motion after the reasons had been outlined by the mover, Secretary Marc. Poole, and the seconder, Nig. Taylor, but a considerable amount of judicious questioning about where the money was to go.
Mr. Cohen began proceedings at 8.20 p.m. with a motion that the unconfirmed minutes of the Med. scheme meeting held July '43 be taken as read. This was passed.
The poor attendance inevitably brought forth the question of a quorum, but Mr. Cohen quashed this despite the doubts of Mr. Ziman.
