Another man whose full time occupation is looking after students needs and welfare is the Rev. Frank Borland, warden at the University of Adelaide.

For several hours he kindly explained a host of details about his university and conducted our reporter around the student buildings.

His general position is that of a liason officer between the university and the student body. He is a friend and adviser to all. As well, various extra tasks otherwise not coped with fall on his shoulders. Thus he handles accommodation, visits schools, corresponding with other universities, and organised the big W.U.S appeal last year.

As an elder statesman and counsellor he plays a large part in student organisation.

He has done much to foster the happy staff-student relations at Adelaide: although he does some what lament the lack of kick in student life. in his home university of Melbourne there is a proud tradition of strife with the administration. There is, however, one lively club, not so well known at New Zealand universities, the Immaterialist Society. It promotes the "cause of liberal humanism and agnosticism." and a major function is holding counter missions after a religious mission.
