Intra-Mural Games Programme.

If you are not prepared to give up your time to attending club practices, than I suggest you go and see the Physical Education Officer, Mr. Landreth, and enrol in the Intra-Mural Games.

These Games, which include Basketball, Table Tennis, Volley ball and Badminton, will be played on successive days of the week and anybody, Club members or not, can go along and have a lot of fun.

Playing hours will be between 12 and 2 o'clock, so in one lunch hour during the week you can go and work off any surplus energy. Hostels etc., may like to enter teams and help in building up the hostel morale.

Anyway, go, and have a chat With Mr. Landreth or Miss Maddox, about taking at least one of the many courses open to the student to attend, from Dry ski training to Modern Ballet classes.

Ski Club has Ambitious Plans for the Season

Presenting his report at the Annual General Meeting of the Ski Club, Mr. Tony Hassed, The Treasurer, outlined the Club's plans for the season. Two or three seasons ago, the Club was in dire financial straits, and due to a concerted effort by the members all outstanding debts had been paid. However, this year the club was faced with the prospect of having to raise £75 by July and to this end a dance will be held on Friday, April 13.

A social levy was to be made on the members of the club together with a working party levy of five shillings, this latter to be paid in to the joint hut account, and used for the expenses incurred in sending parties to the hut to do construction jobs, etc.

Other changes outlined included an increase in the hut fees from 5/ per night to 7/6 per night and an increase in the truck fare to £2/10/-. The cost of a weekend skiing is thus about £5/10/-, inclusive of hire of equipment at 2/6 per unit.

The hut was also to be extended, he said, and this was going to require much money and labour. Auckland University had already started on the internal modifications and the Victoria club was hoping to start work on their portion of the work during the Easter break.

Other speakers during the evening including Mr Landreth, the Physical Education Officer, who outlined his course for instruction in dry skiing.

The evening concluded with slides films, and supper.
