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

T.C. and the Bomb

T.C. and the Bomb

The students of Victoria University College will be interested to know of the action taken by students of the Wellington Teachers' College on Homb tests. At a special general meeting of the Association the following motion was passed:
(1)That this Students' Association condemns all H-bomb tests.
(2)That the Executive (of the Association) take all steps to bring to the attention of the general public and the Prime Minister our opinions on this question.

Bound by our Constitution to act upon this motion, our Executive presented a petition, signed by some 300 students, to Mr. Holyoak. Reports of this presentation were sent to the Press.

Our motion may not have influenced the great power politicians in their decisions. However, we have registered our protest. We hope that sour students' Association will do likewise in accordance with the motions passed at their special general meeting.

D. L. Glover,

Secretary, Wellington Teachers' College Students' Association.
