Weir House Notes

Weir House Notes

Last Weir House Association meeting passed unanimously a resolution advocate improvements to the House. Much has been heard about the conditions the limited facilities and the poor food at Weir, but little has been done to remedy them. At the meeting, Weirmen voiced the opinion that when the amount of board is considered, the advantages of living at Weir are negligible. So far this year, five members of the House have left because of financial difficulties.

Members also complained that no balance sheet has been presented the House committee for two years, so that it is impossible to find just how the board is spent. The Win House Management Committee was accused of "lassitude and nebulousness." No report from the House Committee can be presented to the Management Committee because the latter has not met yet this year.

The last meeting of the University Council approved recommendations for a change in the system of government of Weir House, the Council's press release states. The eel of the changes is to establish a Weir House Council under the chairmanship of the Warden, and consisting of the Warden. Deputy Warden, Vice-Chancellor or his nominee, Council representative Professorial Board representative, the Registrar, the Matron and the House President. Informed sources say that this will put the management of Weir in the hands of the people who are directly interested in its future.

Only four people went to tea on Sunday night. The rest stayed away in protest at the menu, which consisted of salad, luncheon meat and baked potatoes.

"That Chastity is Outmoded" was the subject of a debate between Weir and Vic. A. Weir, funnily enough, took the affirmative. Perhaps Weir should pay a tribute to Vic. A girls for having the courage to accept this topic.
