Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 22, No. 6. Wednesday, June 24, 1959
President elect Hercus says: "John intended to stand for the Capping Portfolio. He has had several years experience in all aspects of Capping activities, including Extrav for the past four years and distribution manager for Cappicade when record sales were obtained.
"If elected will try to correlate all capping activities, except Extrav under one committee . . . 30 capping chairman can know all that goes on . . . and prevent elementary mistakes. He would like to see a capping treasurer's position created on the committee as well as a treasurer on each subcommittee. In normal events one of these tyro treasurers would be appointed capping treasurer. Ho feels this system all the more necessary as there is about £2000 involved in Cappicade alone, and a treasurer who knows what he is doing, has had experience and has the interest and the time to know what is going on in each branch of capping is an absolute necessity.
"He has been a member of Tournament Organisation, Extrav, Cappicade, Drama Club committees and has gained experience in many branches of executive administration.
John has the knowledge and experience to do a good job."
(Four to be elected).
