Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 1. February 28, 1951

We Call it Vandalism

We Call it Vandalism

The following letter has been sent to the president of the VUC Students' Association, following interfence with newspaper exchange files in Salient Room:

Salient Room,

The President,

Victoria College Students' Assn.,

Dear Sir,

When the staff of Salient recently undertook the cleaning and re-organisation of Salient Room it was noted that certain acts of vandalism had taken place fairly recently. An illustrated calendar obtained from the International Union of Students had been slashed with a knife and last year's file of Challenge had been removed from its clip and scattered on the floor.

Later it was brought to the attention of the staff that half a page or so of one copy of this newspaper had been placed on the notice board of Exec. room and an inscription added to it. We think that you will agree that there are strong grounds for believing that whoever committed the impudent vandalism in Salient Room also had access to Exec. room. We suggest that the executive undertake an immediate investigation of this matter.

Respectfully yours,

C. V. Bollinger,

H. C. MacNeill,
