Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 11. August 1, 1957

House Committees Established

House Committees Established

A recommendation to the new Exec. from the recent A.G.M. was:

This recommendation was in line with suggestions already being considered by members of the Exec. and at its first meeting the new Exec, amended the regulations, to establish a house committee: 'to consist of five persons.'

Mr. J. R. Martin was appointed chairman of the Committee, with the remaining four members to be appointed by the Exec. from persons nominated by students. The Exec also endorsed a recommendation from the outgoing Exec. that the President address a lunch time meeting in the Common room on the establishment of the House Committee.

Mr. Marchant accordingly spoke to a meeting of students on Thursday, 4th July, and explained that the House Committee had been established, not primarily as a disciplining body but with the object of preserving and improving the various student amenities in the College, in particular, the Common Rooms and the Gymnasium. Although the Committee did have "power to report actions infringing the rules of conduct in and around the College, and report names of the person or persons concerned to the Executive" it was hoped that its duties would be wholly constructive. Finally, Mr. Marchant said, it was hoped and expected that the students should convey to members of the House Committee, any suggestions for the improvement of facilities.

At its meeting held on 8th July the Executive, on nominations received, appointed Misses Gay Meyer, Margaret Newton, and Messrs. S. B. Robinson, and P. V. O'Brien, to complete the membership of the House Committee.—J.M.
