Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 7. 30th May, 1957

No Asian Seminar in August

No Asian Seminar in August

It is now most unlikely that the Asian Student Seminar will be held in Auckland this August. A letter received by N.Z.U.S.A. from Cosec Associate Secretary Isaac Omolo suggests that the event will be put off till 1958. N.Z.U.S.A. may put in another application for the venue to be in New Zealand.

Other business was the election of the President, Mr. Marchant. as students' representative on the College Council. Mr. Marchant replaces Mr. M. J. O'Brien.

The Exec. expressed their support of the Queensland University in its opposition to the University Acts Amendment Act.

Salient was asked to publicise that Cosec. publications are available at the Exec. Office. It has been decided to set up proper newspaper files in the Common Room (which must cease to be such a piggery or it will be closed. Note the new rubbish bin to "be placed in a strategic place" should help) and the many subversive and interesting papers sent to Salient including the utterly un-subversive (except in South Africa) Cosec. publications, also the daily papers, will be available. Students will be able to read P.V. and Student (Cosec.), both of which would welcome contributions, though the latter will have to be vetted for un-New Zealand tendencies by the Exec. (and so will Salient copies sent to S.E. Asia).

Various sub-committees were again set up (convened coincidentally by the members who suggested the Committee).

Then at 1.20 a.m. Exec. members and Salient staggered home (after a little necessary refreshment).
