Little Congress

Dunedin — Congress 1967 will be held at Curious Cove from January 27 to February 4, a statement from the organising committee says.

Congress, under the auspices of the New Zealand University Students Association, is being organised this time by the Otago University Students Association. Application forms have been circulated to all universities and are available at students association offices.

Cost for the week is £12/10/-.


Gelp is coming. Friday, October 14. (Cryptic note from Roger Lawrence.)


If Your Satchel or cash is stolen—moan. That's the essence of the message from Women's vice-president Barbara Cowan. Some students have even had their money stolen once and left it again in the same place—says an amazed Barbara. Yet very few complain to the university authorities—and often when wallets are returned with some difficulty by caretakers or cleaners they receive no thanks. "It would seem that many students have so much money and care so little what happens to it that they don't take care of it and don't complain officially when it disappears," says Barbara.


Seems the cafeteria queue is getting to be a social meeting place. Yes, the figure in sweater and cords last week was R. von Kohorn, better known for a £2-million nylon enterprise. So don't slop your soup—next week it could be Kevin Sinclair.


Two More Issues—that's all that's left for Salient this year. That is, incidentally, two more than any other New Zealand student paper is producing. Deadline for last letters, moans, etc. is September 29.


Speaking of the cafeteria, we have the highest opinion of those who perform the distasteful task of removing our soiled dishes. But one Salient staffer wishes to make a small point—was it really necessary to remove his saucer while he was drinking from his coffee cup?
