Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 7. 30th May, 1957
As the Exec. comes to the end of their term of office, the strain has apparently become too great for them. The S.G.M. to ban H-bombs only earned the attendance of less than half the Exec. Does this show the attention which our representatives accord our opinions? Elected bodies all too often consider that they alone can tell the electors what they want.
The Special Exec. meeting called to discuss the S.G.M. foundered through lack of a Quorum. is this a responsible way to run the Association?
Men who use the changing rooms in the Upper Gym., and women who see as they walk down the stairs may well wonder whether the premises are officially "closed." The walls are disgusting Th esink almost always lacks soap. There is never a towel or substitute available. In particular men requiring the toilet must wonder if they are to continue to fish around for the removable seat by match light until the new Stud. Union Building is erected in another couple of years time. We understand that the authorities have been approached by Mr. Landreth, the Phys. Ed. Officer, but with no result.
Recently it was found that the inner door leading out the Biology Block was locked. Optimists then tried the fire escape from the Covered Way: but it also could only be opened with a key We understand that the arrangement is that in case of fire, earthquake, etc., a gentleman will always be found standing ready to open the door. (Unless of course the Gods cheat and disasters occur after hours.)
