Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950



But criticism must be informed. The information is available, but not widely known or sought after. The key periodical on current activities of the United Nations as a whole is the "United Nations Bulletin," published by the U.N. Department of Public Information. (See the VUC Library). The U.N.D.P.I. also publishes a great quantity of informative literature, ranging from yearbooks to readable pamphlets, such as "Basic Facts about the United Nations," "Guide to the U.N. Charter," a continuing series on "What the United Nations is Doing"—for Non-Self-Governing Territories—for Status of Women—the Convention on Genocide. There is also an excellent series of cyclostyled "Background Papers" on selected, topics. I have one before me now, and appropriately enough, it concerns the "U.N. Conference on Freedom of Information."

All these and many others, including F.A.O. Bulletin, and UNESCO Courier can be obtained from: The United Nations Association of New Zealand, Room 210, Nathan's Buildings, Grey Street Wellington. Phone 44-331.

I would be glad to receive a note in the Men's Letter Rack from anyone interested in forming a group at VUC to discuss U.N. topics, preferably as an offshoot of the Wellington Branch of U.N.A.N.Z.

In concluding, I would recommend to your his quotation from the Constitution of UNESCO.

"Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed."
