The new Vice-Chancellor said it was most important that the University presented a united front.

"There must be no artificial cleavage between staff and students," said Dr. D. B. C. Taylor last week.

Any differences should be based solely on academic standing.

The University should project an image of community.

Obviously the machinery of government necessary to allow this would be different in a university of 5,000 or 7,000 than it is in a university of 1.000 or 2,000.

In these circumstances it was quite reasonable for students to request an investigation into University government.

Increased representation for students on the administrative committees of the University seemed a possible solution, he said.
