Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington. Vol. 21, No. 9. June 19th 1958. Election Supplement
Neil Plimmer, a third-year full-time arts student, is offering his services for the exec. committee. Before coming to Victoria, he acquired a wealth of experience for such work, as a committee member on numerous social, cultural, and sporting bodies, and since attending University has spent much time with student activity that would provide a sound basis for exec. work. He has represented V.U.W. in athletics at Easter Tournament, and attended N.Z.U.S.A. annual Congress, and gymnasium controller on the University House Committee. Interest in student affairs has taken him to meetings of many clubs and societies, and he has served a term as committee member for one religious organisation, actively helped the work of others, and is at present in his third year on the Athletic Club committee. Activities outside the University range from playing the piano in a dance band to active membership of the Fire-brigadesmen's Union. All this shows interest and hard work in all phases of University and community affairs, and an accumulation of necessary experience.
Any "election policy" must be based fundamentally on student welfare and University progress. Plimmer believes he is completely in touch with these needs, both of the smaller type, through regular habitation of caf. and common room, library and gym., and on the house committee; and also those greater needs of the University, from the expansion of buildings, courses, and hostel accommodation down.
