Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 13. September 12, 1957

Paper Prize

Paper Prize

Finally, the editor of the college newspaper. "On Dit." is awarded a scholarship of £200 and offered a job for two years by the local newspaper. Naturally the newspaper is conservative, but at least up to now, our reporter was informed, the scholarship has not been used as a means of keeping "On Dit" on the straight and narrow Whether "Salient" with its turbulent tradition could work such an arrangement with the "Evening Post" or "Dominion." may be another matter.

These facilities are for about five thousand students, not twice the number at V.U.C. if we could have, half of them, and half a Borland, it would, in our reporter's opinion, merely be approaching our rights as students.

"The placing of graduates in permanent employment, the arranging of part-time and vacation employment, the approving of lodgings and the maintaining of a register of available board, as well as the giving of advice on courses careers, health and personal problems are things the college should be concerned with. These services should not be allowed to grow piecemeal, but should fit into a scheme of planned development."

Mr. R. Hogg, V.U.C. Ilason officer, reporting to the college council.
