Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 11. August 1, 1957



In case no one else tells you, let me assure you "Salient" is better this year than it has been for a long while. You expect something lively and argumentative from a student journal, and the front pages on secret police, newspapers, and so on are just the thing.

One criticism—you devote far too much space to religion. It is a subject about which everyone has deep-seated prejudices, none of them rational or open to reason. No one is interested in any view except his own and if you open your columns to it as you are doing, you will logically have to go on till everyone in the College has had his say.

Congratulations on the editorial "Closed Doors." We ought to refuse to pay Stud. Ass. fees next year if clubs are going to benefit which all of us cannot join and take full pan in. Why should sectarian log-rollers use the name "V.U.C."?

Also. I believe the official title of members of the R.C. Church in England is Popish Recusants" How about using this?
