The theme of the New Zealand University Student Newspapers Association's Easter council meeting held in Auckland during the N.Z. University Tournament was the alms functions and future activities of the association. Considerable criticism had been levelled at this body from various sources, and it was considered that if the association could not form some programme of activities more constructive than in the past its future might be in Jeopardy.

Important activities instituted at the meeting were:—
1.A regular inter-college newsletter scheme, to provide editors in each college with a more rapid news service than is possible merely by exchange of newspapers.
2.A complete coverage of tournaments by the newspaper of the home college, to be ready before departure of teams, as a check for other papers covering tournaments with a limited staff. (Auckland put this scheme into effect at Easter, and Craccum's sports Editor Jim Holdom and staff are to be congratulated on a really firstclass comprehensive report of all activities, supplied to other college newspapers at short notice).
3.A scheme whereby each council meeting of the association be addressed by the editor of a commercial newspaper who should offer criticism and advice to University editors, based on a reading of college newspapers beforehand.
4.Although the co-operative block library scheme which had been discussed at previous meetings was considered impracticable, an agreement was made concerning a ready interchange of blocks between college newspapers.
