Salient. Official Newspaper of Victoria University Students Assn. Volume 40 Number 2. Feb 7 1977

Letter from J. Hounsell to Salient Volume 40 Issue 2 1977

Dear Editor,

Concerning Victoria University of Wellington's famed bookcentre, I was amazed and extremely annoyed to find my textbooks separated into little piles of "German" and "non-German" texts by the cashier. Subsequently a 10% discount was taken from the "non-German" books, whilst I paid full price for the German ones. Considering the high price already because of importing costs, I don't see why we students should be forced to fork out the whole sum when asked, the cashier mumbled something about an "agreement with the importers" — very vague. Whitcoull's obligingly still give 10% discount. Something must be done — at least an explanation, a satisfactory explanation is necessary!

J. Hounsell.
