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


Criticism of the management committee has bees considered to be the traditional and regular practice of the residents of Weir House and their association's committee. It is, however, a mere coincidence that I should be taking part in that ceremonial custom.

My thesis throughout the annual report (and especially in the section on the management committee) is that every person who accepts public office and responsibility must discharge his duty with care, attention and hard work.

The College Council recognised its responsibility in the administration of Weir House by appointing a sub-committee to recommend its management. During the Academic year of 1954 insufficient attention was given by this committee to the House and it seems that their collective interest was passive rather than active.

If shortage of time prevents the members of the Council and its subcommittee from devoting more time to Weir, inter alia then those who are at fault should not continue to sit on either body.
