Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 5. June 8, 1959
—On behalf of a group of full-time girl students, I should like to know what the general opinion would be to girls wearing slacks and jerseys to varsity every day.
In our opinion slacks are warm and comfortable, and can be made to look becoming. They are the obviously sensible mode of attire for those of us who are obliged to spend all day working around the "icy" university buildings during Wellington's miserable winter.
However, those girls who so far have ventured out in slacks have drawn very adverse comments and glances.
We should like to know other peoples' views on this subject.
