Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 5. April 15, 1953
At one of the most interesting N.Z.U.S.A. Council meetings for some time, our President (M. J. O'Brien) was elected unopposed and by popular acclamation President of N.Z.U.S.A. He thus follows his brother's success in that he is at present President of both V.U.C.S.A. and N.Z.U.S.A., and student member on the V.U.C. Council. Fresh from his recent trip to Australia and with over five years of brilliant success in student affairs, Mr. O'Brien should prove the most capable President for years.
Popular Ken Phillips fills the position of sports officer: he has been a V.U.C. Tournament delegate and is at present Vice-President of V.U.C.S.A. The former sports officer (Mr. D. B. Horsley) was elected a Vice-president, not only as an acknowledgement of his services in that position but also to enable N.Z U.S.A. to have a fully accredited observer at national meetings and conferences in Europe. The newly-elected Secretary (Miss Audrey Cook) is a former Exec. member—women's Vice-President—and Congress 1953 Controller.
