Salient: An organ of student opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 23, No. 5. Wednesday, June 15, 1960
The Executive Secretary will be a most important and necessary member of the Committee, for he will be primarily responsible for runny long-awaited services to students. I refer to student health, accommodation, employment, welfare, and counselling generally. Efficient co-ordination of such services has been long overdue at Victoria. Executives over past years have attempted to initiate such ideas, but the attempts have invariably proved ineffectual mainly due to the lack of a fulltime co-ordinator to build up an efficient system, and to maintain continuity.
In general, then, what appeared to be problems of management two years ago are now no more. I consider the overall control—together with delegation of specific duties to the Student Executive, sub-committees, or the Executive Secretary, by the Management Committee—to have been placed on a first-rate administrative basts.
