The Spike or Victoria College Review October 1929

Local N.U.S. Committee

Local N.U.S. Committee.

Throughout the year the N.U.S. Committees have been continuing their meetings, and doing valuable work. The Debating Committee has obtained a tangible result in the debating team which has just left for U.S.A. It is hoped that this is only the first of a series of tours which will be arranged among various University Colleges.

The Books Committee, after getting into touch with prominent English booksellers, is now making final arrangements with a well-known English firm in order to have the privilege accorded to the British National Union of Students extended to New Zealand. The benefits to be derived from this scheme by New Zealand students will be very valuable, and it is expected that when once the arrangements are completed, students will not be slow to avail themselves of them. The proposed scheme is briefly as follows: Students, by means of a form signed by an accredited agent of the N.Z.N.U.S., will be able to secure text books directly from Home at cheaper rates than those prevailing here. Postage must be paid by the purchaser. Fuller announcements will be made later.
