Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 39, Issue 3. 15th March [1976]


The Executive seemed unperturbed by the no-confidence motion hanging over their heads as they carved their way through another Monday night's work.

Sports Officer Peter Thrush looked as though he would be the latest person up for the chop when he wasn't present for the opening of the meeting (He hadn't attended any executive meetings so far this year.) However, after apologising for his late arrival, and upon giving a very eloquent speech on how he had battled through wind, hail and snow to get to the other meetings, he was let off with a warning.

Remnants of the Goodall Affair were still present to add a slight touch of unease to the meeting. President Gyles Beckford said there had been five applicants for the office manager's position, four of which had been interviewed by himself and Peter Aagaard (Association secretary).

Treasurer Mike Curtis, who was the third person on the appointments committee, complained that he hadn't been notified of the times and places of any of these interviews.

Steve Underwood backed him up: 'To leave out the treasurer is a bit piss poor!'.

Peter Aagaard: 'Yes, it was a slight oversight.'

Steve Underwood: 'A slight oversight.. ...for fucks sake!'.

Gyles leapt in with his usual peacemaking charm and diverted everyone to a discussion on security for the rock concerts. The 'Waves' concert (attended by a capacity audience) was discussed after Peter Aagaard suggested there was a need for five security guards, rather than four, to make sure that the union building could be sealed off once the Union Hall was full. Peter is drafting future policy for rock concerts and asked anyone who had any ideas to come and see him.
