Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 13. October 4, 1951
NZUSA is watching the interests of students who wished to have their Military Training deferred, and the Resident Executive has obtained certain assurances from the Minister of Labour as to students' right of appeal. In at least one place outside Wellington, complaints have been made as to the manner in which student appeals are treated. If any student affected by the Scheme feels that he has not had fair treatment from the Postponement Committee, he should contact Men's Vice-President, Maurice O'Brien, who represents VUC on NZUSA. if there are complaints, NZUSA can pursue the matter further only if specific cases are cited. It should also be remembered that, at the moment, the only valid ground of appeal seems to be that of financial hardship.
