SMAD. An Organ of Student Opinion. 1934. Volume 5. Number 3.
About a year ago Massey College approached the N.Z.U. Tournament Committee for permission to compete at the Easter Tournament. The proposal was rejected on the following main grounds:—
|1.||That Massey College at present could compete in only Athletics and Shooting and the men's sections of Swimming and Tennis, and that difficulties would arise over points to be secured for the Tournament Shield and other trophies.|
|2.||That the billetting list would be seriously increased.|
|3.||That Massey College would not at present be able to take its turn with the other Colleges in organising a Tournament.|
The V.U.C. Students' Association has now been approached with the proposal that outstanding athletes, etc., from Massey College should compete at the V.U.C. Tournament trials, and, if successful, take their place as members of the V.U.C. Tournament Team.
The present position of Massey College students is an unfortunate one. Although they are members of a University College which has the same status as the other University Colleges, they are debarred from competing in Tournament and gaining N.Z.U. Blues in these particular sports.
The only alternative to this proposal appears to be the suggestion that Massey College students should be admitted as members of the teams from the College nearest to which they reside. With such a system, however, it is probable that further difficulties would be experienced in arranging trials.
The question is being considered by the V.U.C. Executive, but it is proposed to give students the opportunity of discussing the proposals at the next General Meeting of the Students' Association.See N.Z.U. Blues Awarded at the Hockey Tournament Dance, Sat, Next Eminently Successful .Ones In The
