Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 10. July 15, 1954
We observe that Weir House tariff has again risen, to £3/17/6 per week. O to be back in the Good old days (1950) when it was only £2/10/-: But it adds weight to our editorial. Living costs are rising; consequently bursaries should be adjusted to cover this rise, until such a time as a wise government takes steps to demote inflationary tendencies in the economic field.
It appears that Weir House and Helen Lowry Hall (hostel for T.T.C. women) are combining to give Victoria the biggest and best ball since the B. and S. Ball last August. It is a major move to give Victoria that traditional social life which is a heritage of all Universities. The absence of facilities is deplorable, but when the new Student Union Building is created this century (we hope) this will be overcome and V.U.C. will have scope for a real corporate life (for the full-timers at least).
