Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950
Sir,—With the present critical international situation as it is, I do feel that it is time the students of VUC gave some serious thought to the activities of the leftist clubs of the college. Over 3000 students have allowed a handful of revolutionaries to completely dominate them in all student activities of a political nature for at least the last six years, earning for Victoria an unenviable reputation. Opposition clubs have been created, but their actions seem negligible. The only way to quell this detrimental activity is by the combined forces of every student who has a respect for himself, his college and his country. [unclear: This] year, let us all join to eradicate this pest from our midst. At tend every meeting and oppose them with sweat, tears and blood.
