Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University of Wellington. Vol. 24, No. 5. 1961



Co-operation with local Maori functions and other Maori organisations has also been considered important. Last year the club participated fully by assisting with the locals in the opening of the Meeting House at Waiwhetu.

The club has a monthly, cyclostyled newsletter, the name of which is "Wikitoria." It has been in print since 1959, and it reports on various club activities and highlights. It also keeps the club members informed of the doings and goings on of the other university Maori clubs (if they happen to be active).

The latest venture of the club has been the purchase of piu-piu and korowai. The formation of a constitution after three years of wrangling in committee culminated in the acceptance of the final draft at the special general meeting. The objects of the club are now clear.

Pride of place of all the club's objects, however, is its importance in helping young Maoris into university life. This was never really the intention, hut it is so now. Long may this be so.
