Questions On Debate At Vic. University

Questions On Debate At Vic. University

The Victoria University Students' Association will discuss the circumstances of a debate at the university on Pope Paul's recent encyclical, and the manner in which it was reported in the student newspaper, "Salient."

The report published in Salient includes comment attributed to Dr E. Geiringer, who was one of the speakers in the debate. The subject was "that the Pope is a pill."

The president of the university's Catholic Society. Mr Tim Dyce, has written to the association asking why his society was not informed of the subject and speakers in the debate.

Mr Dyce told The Tablet's Wellington representative that the debate was not arranged in the normal way by the Debating Society's executive, nor was the Catholic Society informed, a normal courtesy in these matters.
