Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 12. September 19, 1945
The second motion on the agenda was the amendment concerning the employment and remuneration of a full-time office assistant. Mr. McArley moved and Secretary Poole seconded the motion that the Exec be empowered to employ an office assistant at any salary that they might decide upon. On Mr. Drummond's initiative an amendment to the motion to the effect that this salary should not exceed £350. was passed without a show of hands being necessary.
Two more constitutional amendments were carried almost unanimously—the first that participation in Winter Tournament be made an official College function, and the second that a discrepancy in the annual voting procedure be removed. It was here pointed out that the Exec, and indeed some past Execs, had been, elected on votes that were theoretically informal. (Cries of "Throw 'em out," "Resign," etc.. were heard but the Exec were adamant and affected an apparent deafness.)
There was no further business so the meeting was declared closed, the Exec retired to supper and we went home.
There ain't no justice in this land,
Just got divorced from my old man.
And didn't I laugh at the Court's decision,
They gave him the kids and they ain't his'n.
