Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington Vol. 24, No. 6. 1961.
Dear Sir, Now that the hunt for ex-Nazis is in full cry, it is strange that no such popular pursuit is being followed in New Zealand. Why do we not join in the game and organise a full-scale witch-hunt?
I see no reason why such worthwhile organisations (such as the Federated Farmers, the Editorial Board of Cappicade, the patrons of the private bar of the St. George, the N.Z.R.U. Inner Council, the Save the Taj Mahal Sub-committee) cannot be persuaded to pool their resources for the welfare of the community in ridding us of these cruel criminals.
The unspeakable horror brought to mind arouses our deepest concern that those who have sinned against humanity should escape rightful retribution.
I call upon the readers of this far-sighted newspaper to take with both hands the flame of liberty and eradicate these bigoted humbugs who so inhumanly stamp out the remaining survival of pre-sewage—our dear midges.
Yours, with a swollen tongue,
