Morris Defeats Freedman

Morris Defeats Freedman

Election of International Affairs delegate also involved a bit of political wrangling. The Israel debate sparked up as Leonie Morris and Eric Freedman faced some rather heavy questioning about their personal attitudes and willingness to support VUWSA policy that might disagree with their own views. The Jewish Soc. members were obviously concerned whether Leonie would support the VUWSA policy on Israel, although she personally disagrees with it. Those on the other side of the political fence were equally concerned that Eric would ignore the more important International Affairs problems of Malaysia and the South African tour. After a close vote Leonie was elected.

Then in quick succession delegates were elected for National Affairs (Kevin Swann), Education (Lindy Cassidy, Education Officer), and Finance and Administration (Steven Underwood). The monotony was only broken by a cunning, but alas unsuccessful attempt to have the Welfare and Accomodation Officers included under the banner of Finance and Administration; ah, the slyness of students knows no bounds

If you don't want to read this list of student reps elected to university committees, at least read about the first one, for that seems quite important. Lindy Cassidy (ex officio) and Rae Mazengarb were elected for the Teaching and Research Committee. This represents the only body with University approval that is studying the effects of different forms of assessment.

Other reps elected were; Council, until June 30, (Gyles Beckford); Catering sub-committee (Alex Tully); Language and Literature (Neil Morrisen); Commerce and Administration (Kevin Swann), two positions still vacent; Joint Committee, meets once every four or five years!, (Don Carson, John Ryall, Simon Treacy), University Extension (Roger Palmer); and there was nobody yet mug enough to sit on the Teaching Aids, Timetables, and Careers Advisory Committees. However, these positions are open to any student, so if you do want to become a student rep just make yourself known at the next SRC.
