The Arts Festival Committee has been given permission to run the A.F. 'Hops' with their own doormen and barmen.

The permission was given on the following conditions:
1.That doormen provided by the AF committee be on continuous duty for the whole function and abstain from alcohol.
2.That beer cans be continuously cleared from the hall.
3.That such arrangements be on a trial basis and if in the opinion of the Man Vice President in consultation with other Exec, members any function has caused unreasonable expense or inconvenience to the Student Union or the Association, subsequent functions must hire such doormen and/or barmen as the Man Vice President directs.

This was decided at the 28 July Executive meeting, when some doubt was expressed about the advisability of having students as doormen and barmen.

Arts Festival Controller Graeme Nesbitt assured the Executive that everything was under control. 'This will be the best organised, most orderly Arts Festival ever held," he said.

"Any student found causing trouble or damage will have his ticket confiscated and will be barred from subsequent Arts Festival activities.

"If the student concerned is from Victoria, he will appear before the Student Union Management Committee in the normal way."
