Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 10. August 9, 1951
Bump Him Into Parliament!
The old Extrav chorus now applies to VUS student Bill Bransgrove, who has sought the National nomination for Wellington Central. The Socialist Club is content with endorsing Labour candidates, but the Charter Club has actually produced a would be M.P. Wouldn't it be fun to sec Ron Smith (M.Com.) standing in the same electorate!
Free New Zealanders?
An amusing account of a London meeting is given by the Peoples' Voice. It seems that forcer Salient editor Alec McLeod and others have met to consider the threat of the Emergency Regulations to stay-at-home New Zealanders. It all sounds rather like the Free French or the London Poles who took refuge abroad during the war. At any moment we expect to get a newsletter like we see turned out by various emigre groups from Spain and Greece.
Is There a Professor in the House?
Few staff members seem to think it their duty to attend Plunket Medal. Few students do either, but shouldn't the staff do a little better in putting in an attendance at major student functions?
It is scarcely graceful to criticise the judges of Plunket Medal, especially our good friend Mr. Braybrooke, but was such a long judgement really necessary? Mrs. Mount joy's speech was among the evening's best, but the hour was late, and hardly allowed for drawn out concurrences.
