HART's New Enthusiasm
HART's New Enthusiasm
These thoughts were backed up by others present, most of whom agreed that because of the urgency of the May 28 march, there should be a meeting every week to which all members would be invited by mail.
At these meetings activities would be discussed, the committee would report back on the previous week's work and problems arising from it, and the future direction and strategy would be discussed.
The traditionalists, seeing these proposals as personal attacks on them rather than as positive ideas for taking the issues to the students, tried to put all sorts of administrative hurdles in their way. But after numberous people had volunteered to help with the weekly mail-outs, and Gyles Beckford suggested the Activities Room could probably be used as a campus headquarters, the opposition disappeared and a new enthusiasm emerged.
Suggestions were made for involving students around the university. Fosters are to be painted, lectures are to be leafletted, speakers will espouse their views at all comers of the campus, and socials are being planned - all hopefully leading up to the week or fortnight's concentrated activity before the May 28 March.
So, by the time the HART AGM finished everyone was prepared for the intense activity to come, and most were enthusiastic about the part that they could play.
