Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 13. September 24, 1947

[Introduction]

There exists in this country a NZ University, whose sole function is conducting examinations and granting degrees. There also exists a NZ University Students Association, whose activities are almost as limited. It is a body which has never had a meeting which could be attended by all students, and whose members' only chance of meeting each other in any number is at sporting gatherings.

Victoria has initiated a scheme which we hope will provide a means by which the Association can become a real National Union of Students. During the long vacation, the first NZUSA Congress will be held. Anyone can come, and the Congress will take the form of a number of lectures and discussions, with a leavening of social events. All those people who are excluded from Tournaments because they are incapable of reaching a high standard in any sport, but who are interested in each other and in the problems of modern society, will find Congress an invaluable experience.

NZUSA empowered Victoria to en quire into and if possible to conduct during the long vacation of 1947-48 an NZUSA Student Congress in or near "Wellington, the entire responsibility to rest with VUC for the first year.
