Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 8. August 9, 1944
[Editors reply to Gog and Magog]
To answer your points briefly on our "new lease of life," we wish to state that it has been our policy to have representative and worthwhile front page news. The I.S.S. is such an example. This year two front pages dealt with vacation, work and its problems, one on Extrav. (which netted £550 for Patriotic Funds), a main article on the Capping Ball sequel, an issue on Exec, elections, and one on the A.G.M. and first exec, meeting, the last on I.S.S.—all, we consider, interesting and worthwhile subjects. Last year we had front page "boosts" for text books for A.E.W.S., I.S.S. (two), health scheme, work day for patriotic funds, and soldiers' news. We have consistently published I.S.S. and S.C.M. news as they affect a number of students, also extrav. reunion was covered in a couple of inches which contained a notice about lost property and a well-earned presentation to the producer. We feel that the writers of this letter had perhaps failed to acquaint themselves with the facts.
