President will be paid

President will be paid

The President of the Students' Association will be paid $400 a year from next year.

This was decided by a lunch-time Special General Meeting on 30 July.

The meeting, attended by about 140 students, also "condemned the Soviet government for its intervention in Czechoslovakia."

Moving the motion that future holders of his offce be paid $400, Students' Association President Doug White reiterated the views expressed in his memorandum reported in Salient 17.

The duties of the President were steadily growing and it was desirable for him to be a full-time student.

Though he had been forced by the lack of payment to take a job this year. Doug was still working 30 hours a week as President.

He believed the position should be made analogous with the editorship of Salient which has been paid $400 a year since 1965

John Hales spoke against the proposal.

It was then approved by the meeting without a division.
