Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 10. August 9, 1951

So This is a University

So This is a University

Prolix draws attention to the fact that the Plunket Medal Contest was held without the presence of the staff. Here are some other facts which may interest the staff and the students about this University:

Salient published an article on Sir Walter Moberly's "Crisis in the University." No one seemed interested.

The Staff debate, excellent in its fashion and good entertainment, failed miserably to provide any comment on staff-student relationships.

One member of the staff has so far been provoked into writing for Salient. Letters from students are few and far between.

We mourn The Spike, and three Journals plug along, subsidised, scratching for funds and, worse still, scratching for subscribers.

About 150 students attended the Annual General Meeting. As Prolix puts it: Was there a Professor in the House?—a Lecturer maybe but otherwise

It took the Emergency Regulations to provoke some members of the Staff—an encounter from which they did not emerge too well. What will be necessary to make this College a University?
