Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 1. March 3, 1954
The Congress chairman was A. R. D. Fairburn, Lecturer in Art at the Elam School of Art. Auckland. His innocuous and unamusing interjections did not suffice to raise his contribution to the discussions to more than the level of mediocrity, and despite an assuming pleasantness of disposition, he was not a competent chairman However. Congress is just its much self-directing as directed and so did not suffer greatly from what on any other important occasion would have been an embarrassment.
