Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 21, No. 9. July 23, 1958
Exec [Report by J. Gamby]
Exec made last amendments to the regulations of the newly-formed Victoria University of Wellington Sports Council, which is to promote, control and co-ordinate the affairs of the University's twenty-five-odd sports clubs, It will conduct relations with outside sporting groups and arbitrate disputes between clubs. It will recommend the size of club grants and the granting of blues. It's first big job is to stage the coming Tournament.
There will be two voting delegates from each club. Administration of Council business is to be vested in a Sports Committee of not more than seven or less than four members. The formation of the Council foreshadows a New Zealand University Sports Council to promote varsity sport on a national scale.
It is also pretty sure to lead to the formation of an Arts Council among Victoria's right or so cultural clubs, not only to organise the coming (August '59) Arts Festival, but to make sure their grants compare reasonably with those of the united sports clubs.
