Criticism Censored

The following portion of Mr Satya Nandan's report of the International Affairs Committee was deleted by exec from the annual report at a recent meeting presumably because it implied self-criticism:

"Although this committee was set up two years ago to consider directives to the executive on its international policy and to consider in particular the welfare of overseas students at Victoria; the amount of work it has done to date is negligible to the amount of work it needs to have done.

"One main drawback has been the lack of realisation of the importance of the committee's work which seems to have been far too engrossed in lighter activities to find time to think about matters that require some foresight and long-time planning.

"The fact that this committee did not meet till December, 1958, six months after the present executive was elected, and only eight months after the last meeting of the committee, is sufficient evidence of the negligent attitude shown by the executive towards not only this committee, but a few other cultural committees the works of which require seriousness of purpose and thought."
