Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 11, No. 1. March 17th. 1948



Dear Sir,—A copy of the Report of the International Student Service Annual Conference held at Aarhus University, Denmark, in July, 1947, has recently come to my hand. As the V.U.C. I.S.S. Committee is at present raising funds for the I.S.S. World Student Relief by means of work days, it might be of interest to students to know how other national committees of I.S.S. are raising their funds for I.S.S.-W.S.R.

(a)Collections at dances, films, festivals.
(b)Give dances, concerts, auctions, speeches.
(c)Appeals to alumni and friends of the College or University.
(d)Door fee at student discussions (political groups).
(e)Dinners and dances by clubs or groups. .
(f)House to house, and street collections.
(g)Drama productions.
(h)The French method of raising funds for I.S.S. is to set forward a definite project for which the money is to be spent.
(i)The Danish report that in their case, the State gives money equal to that raised by the students.

These methods are quoted from the report and suggest extra ways in which students of V.U.C, past and present, could assist the I.S.S. Committee to raise all the funds possible for the World Student Relief.

J. D. W. Raine,

Treasurer, V.U.C. I.S.S.
