Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 11, No. 1. March 17th. 1948
Since Salient has commenced the New Year with an assurance that it has an anti-fascist history of which it is proud it will be interesting to see just how a reconciliation will come about. The reconciliation will consist of an explanation of the actions of those "notoriously leftist" students who have been demonstrating against those who are engaged once more in purging reactionaries (a favourite modern pastime). Either these students are suddenly fascists or their new Government is not on Salient's approved list.
One other point in the first issue needs comment. A better heading for the article "What is the Y.P.C?" would have been "Why the Y.P.C?" This peculiar organization composed it seems of very few youth who are members of some unnamed clubs has a column in what I have always presumed is a student paper.
For the benefit of all students Salient might spend some space telling us just exactly what is a fascist. The matter is becoming more and more confused even in "progressive circles."
