Probable Nominees For Executive 1961-62?

Executive elections for the Victoria University Students' Association will be held next month—three weeks away. So far, we have had very little news. It has been rumoured that Michael Moriarty, Murray White, Ian Grant, Arthur Everard, and Lindsay Conford will be standing for executive this year.

Michael Moriarty is not to be confused with that B.B.C. character—Michael is a full time law student; he has been a part-timer; and is the New Zealand Universities' Press Council's new publications officer. He is also Supervising reporter for "Salient." Much of the Improvement — if any — in "Salient" 1961 will be due to his valiant efforts in organising the coverage of debates, meetings, etc.

Ian Grant is one of the Cappicade. 1961, editors—there is a picture of him in the back of Cappicade (If you want to know what he looks like). He is interested in the advertising trade. Ian was "Salient's" editor last year. Ian is a part-time student.

Another person associated with Cappicade, 1961, is Lindsay Conford.

Murray White is also connected with the Aim society, Murray (a full-time student in his third year at Vic.) has been associated for some time now with cultural organising in both the University and the City. A past secretary of that budding group, the Vic. Film Society, he is at present serving on the cultural affairs committee at Vic.: he is also Fine Arts Editor of "Salient," a job calling for a special sense of despair and anguish. Murray is also on the committee of the Wellington Film Society and the Wellington Recorded Music Society. He is a corresponding member to the British Film Institute and is on the District Council of the Workers' Educational Association. He is a past member of the N.Z. China Society and Opera-Technique, and the World Affairs' Council of Cultural Determination.

Arthur Everard was at Otago University in 1956, where he was Fine Arts Editor, film reviewer, and music critic for "Critic." He was also an active member in the Dunedin Film Society.

He came to Victoria in 1958, and is a full-time student finishing a degree in Psychology. He is the head of the S.C.M. hostel, is active on Adult Education, is a contributor to the Journal of the Federation of the New Zealand Aquatic Societies. He is at present also, a member of the British Film Institute, the Wellington Film Society, the National Film Library, and is a contributor to "Cinema," the monthly film programme of the N.Z.B.S. He is the film reviewer and record reviewer for "Church and People," has contributed greatly to "Salient," and is the founder, secretary and projectionist of the University Film Society. He regards as his prime accomplishment the ability to keep a beard for three years.
