Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington. Vol. 21, No. 9. June 19th 1958. Election Supplement

[Val Maxwell and Croz. Walsh]

Val Maxwell

Val, having completed a teacher's training course, has this year started a degree. In the past he has taken an active interest in many University affairs and this year is an active member of the Indoor Basketball Club, being also the Secretary of the Wellington Basketball Association. Val is a part-time student.

Croz. Walsh

Croz. is finishing an Arts degree in history and geography as a full-time student with a third year from Training College. Last year he was President of the Training College Students Association, and he has taken an active part in University affairs both in Canterbury and Wellington.

Together they wish to present a joint policy, the features of which are:
1.Concessions for cafeteria meals. They wish to have concession cards available for those students who regularly take meals in the cafeteria.
2.Procession. They have in mind a scheme for the production of procession, along the lines of Extrav. production, with a producer, set designer, costumer, etc., so that for one year at least Vic. students can see how a Procession should be run.
3.Arts Festival. They wish to see at last the Arts Festival proposed to be held at Victoria in 1959 and will put all their energies behind the scheme.
4.Education. They wish to see a full investigation into University education by the Students' Association Executive with a view to making representations to the Professorial Board and Senate for those changes which seem desirable.
5.They wish to see a more liberal policy with regard to control over Salient.
6.Student Opinion. It is time that student opinion as expressed in A.G.M.'s is acted upon by the Executive. But as this is not enough, an effort to canvass student opinion on vital issues should be attempted by the Executive when it is not otherwise forthcoming.
7.Executive Elections. They wish to sec public meetings at which the candidates debate any important issues so that those present have an opportunity of seeing what they will be getting if they vote for particular candidates.
8.Student Amenities. Features urgently requiring Exec. action are:
(i)Lack of toilet facilities in the University—particularly men's.
(ii)Lack of parking space.
(iii)Lack of student accommodation.

These are only some of the problems which these two candidates wish to see acted upon. They hope if elected to see a greater liveliness in student affairs and a greater par-ticipation in them by the very students whom the Executive only represent.
