Changes taking place in the University of N.Z. pose the problem of a new name for VUC.'
At a recent College Council meeting the acting principal, Professor C. L. Bailey, stated that the Professorial Board recommended "University of Wellington." but no decision would be made on the matter until after the return of the principal. Dr. J. Williams, from overseas in June. It is known' that some circles favour retaining the name Victoria, as in "Victoria University, Wellington."
Mr. M. J. O'Brien, student representative on the Council, asked that the views of students on the subject be heard before a decision is made. Executive, at its meeting on May 25, decided to make no recommendation until it had heard the opinion of students at the Association's [unclear: Annual] general meeting on June 22.
