SMAD. An Organ of Student Opinion. 1935. Volume 6. Number 11.



Last year's efficient Secretary is standing for the same post again, and it is unlikely that anyone will oppose him. Ensconsed in a comfortable Weir House armchair, he was at first disposed to play the oyster, announcing that he had no statements for publication, and then characteristically, plunging into a spate of rhetoric regarding his projected platform. First of all he featured the new Building Fund, briefly indicating a possible lay-out of Kelburn to allow for its being build where the gully below the tennis courts now yawns. With this end in view, his next objective will be to maintain, and, if possible, strengthen, the happy relations between students and the Prof. Board College Council and citizens generally, which are regarded by him as the first essential to any progress in any direction at all. He wants Students Association policy to be such that it will gradually dawn upon enlightened citizens that students are worth while considering and should not be regarded as mere children. A thorough change in the organisation of Capping is another idea which has arisen out of his experience of this year's celebrations. Finally, he had in mind completing the scheme embarked on by him when first elected, of making the Executive into an efficient business organisation. The records system and general lay-out and routine were lashed by his reforming tongue.
