Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 9. July, 24, 1946

—and the Cross

—and the Cross

Dear Sir,—We have in "Salient" a sufficiently strong staff to promote and stimulate student activity in every way. There is a definite improvement in the mode of presentation of material and statement of fact.

To the average reader, by the cartoon on the front page of Vol. 9, No. 8, there would appear something wrong somewhere. There is an utter misstatement of truth. The Anglican Cathedral will NOT be built until the housing shortage is relieved. That has been stated so many times that even a most disinterested person knows it. The Church of England has the welfare of the people at heart and knows that it is not until provision for homes is satisfied that architectural provision for the spiritual needs of the community can be given. In fact, the money collected is invested in Government funds which actually assist the Government in its building programme. The campaign also assists to prevent inflation. When we consider the Government circulated eighteen million pounds in war gratuities, a quarter of a million asked for a prototype of St. Paul's is really insignificant.

The cartoon was not true in fact. J. H. Newman has stated a university to be the home of truth. This utter misstatement must be made correct.

Pro Bono.
