Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 21, No. 8. 2nd July, 1958



Mr. Shaw, Resident Executive representative for Victoria, reported to the meeting on the last Res. Exec. meeting.

On the matter of the Asian Study seminar to which New Zealand has still not officially received an invitation to attend, Mr. Shaw said that Otago University had indicated that they felt that the present financial position of Associations did not warrant the expense involved in sending delegates to the seminar. However, N.Z.U.S.A. have already forwarded the nomination of Mr. Kingsbury as an Administrative Assistant to the Seminar.

Mr. Zohrab was against the idea of sending delegates in view of the finance involved and believed that the Executive should remember University clubs before they committed themselves to the amount involved. Mr. Hume also supported this suggestion and said that it was time that New Zealand faced realities in the matter of International Conferences. Mr. Hume made the following points re Asian Study Seminar:
(1)That the Executive should remember their previous commitments.
(2)New Zealand would be at the Seminar only as observers.
(3)There had been no straight invitation.

However, when the issue went to the vote it was passed by 6 votes to 2.
