Has written his annual letter to the daily press.

Mr. Don Jamieson, a history honours student at V.U.C., and V.U.C.S.A. Records Officer, has been appointed N.Z.U.S.A. Records Officer. The post was created as a result of the growing need for an officer with a thorough knowledge of the history, origins and background of the association—a need emphasised by the number of inquiries from overseas concerning the association's history.

It has also been realised that unless N.Z.U.S.A. records are soon systematised and steps are taken for their preservation, the association's past will be forgotten through neglect.

The New Zealand delegates to the Seventh I.S.C. in Nigeria in September. Messrs. Ii. V. Galvin and P. W. Hoag, were given a mandate by N.Z.U.S.A. to press for the holding of the seminar in New Zealand, and were authorised to suggest Auckland as the venue and the first quarter of 1958 as the time. They were also permitted to suggest or agree to other times or venues which the Super vision Committee might consider more favourably, provided that such alternatives would [unclear: nr]-be impracticable from N.Z.U.S.A.'s Viewpoint.

An excellent memorandum on all aspects of organisation at V.U.C. has been prepared and circulated to club secretaries by the V.U.C.S.A. Secretary, former "Salient" editor Brian Shaw. Club treasurers should particularly note the appendix on their duties. At last club "accounts" may remotely resemble accounts. Copies are available at the

V.U.C.S.A. Office.

Men. Kelly, have presented the world and her husband with triplets, was renting comfortably at the hospital when her friend, Mrs. O Rielly, came to call.

"Triplets!" exclaimed Mrs. O'Rielly. "Faith and it's a wonderful thing, havin' one's family all at once-like instead of one at a time like common folks."

"Aye, that it is, that it is. Mrs. O'Rielly," beamed the proud mother, "Yon know the doctor says it happens only once in two hundred thousand times".

[unclear: Mr] O'Rielly, visibly impressed, shook her head and raid, "Saints above and is that a fact now? if I'm not bein' [unclear: er-]Mrs. Kelly, Whin did you be after findin' time to do the housework?"
