Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 12, No. 3, April 6th, 1949.
Mr. Harry Evison, the secretary of the Students' Association, spoke of the need for bigger and better bursaries. He outlined the cost of an Arts or Science degree and showed that only those with some private means could carry out the course in a satisfactory manner. He stressed that fees should be abolished and that adequate financial assistance must be available to all those intellectually able to profit from a Varsity education. The students, in pressing for these immediate aims, said Mr. Evison, realised that their struggle was only a part of the struggle of all young people for better conditions.
