Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 12. September 6, 1954
Mr. Brewster reported verbally that he has been co-operating with Mr. Ian Free, who is working in a bookshop and is doing similar investigations for V.U.C. They have been investigating three possibilities: (a) an overall indent scheme and distribution of books to the various colleges: (b) a scheme such as that operating in Training Colleges whereby students who can identify themselves as bona fide Training College students receive a 10 per cent, discount from various firms; (c) educational aids—this firm does not hold stocks but will indent for colleges at a 20 per cent. discount but the books must be ordered and paid for the year before they are needed.
In Mr, Brewster's opinion. N.Z.U.S.A, should endeavour to have N.Z.U. recognised as an educational institution, and approach a reputable bookseller with the idea of gaining a 10 per cent, reduction such as is allowed to Training College students.
Mr. Brewster is to continue his investigations and will approach Whitcombe and Tombs regarding a scheme as outlined.
