Salient.The Newspaper of Victoria University College. Vol. 19, No. 4. April 6, 1955


The work of this committee, more perhaps than any other portion of the affairs rolating to this association, has given me the greatest cause for concern.

Quite frankly I am very unhappy about the management of Weir House by the College Council and the sub-committee which makes recommendations to it.

Any gift which is held in trust and administered by a public body should be most carefully and meticulously governed. The Council, which was responsible for the appointment of the first committee to recommend the management of Weir House, must surely have realised this: it was implicit in their action.

But no matter how experienced members of a Council may be, ten of their number—together with three ex officio members—cannot recommend with scrupulous care and thorough attention the management of Weir House in two brief meetings in any one academic year. Such was the case in 1954. One meeting lasted [unclear: far] two and a half hours, and the [unclear: eber] for twenty minutes.

This Is not good stewardship!
