Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 5. April 15, 1953

Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends

Various remits were discussed; these will be given in full later, after the N.Z.U.S.A. minutes appear. From the Sports Officer's report submitted by the retiring Sports Officer (Mr. D. B. Horsley) the question of Rugby Blue and the Blues Panel provided the most contentious item but as the negotiations are at a delicate stage, we will omit mention of the discussion with the intention of crystallising the dispute once it has been resolved.

The Sports Council proposals brought forward a rehash of all the old arguments both for and against, no one college appearing to have changed its views on the matter. C.U.C. had envisaged a Sports Council analgous to N.Z.U.S.A with six resident members in Wellington and two delegates from each college. Mr. Horsley spoke on the drawbacks of such an idea. There would still have to be a separate Tournament Committee in each college, and there would be overlapping duties and responsibilities. C.U.C. moved and C.A.C. seconded proforma. "that a Sports Council be set up" and the old arguments were rehashed. C.A.C. withdrew its seconding and the motion lapsed. O.U. then moved: "That an N.Z.U. Sports Council be not set up as this body regards N.Z.U.S.A. as capable of administering all matters that such a Sports Council could administer." This was seconded by V.U.C. and passed unanimously.
