Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Vol 35 no. 23. 21st September 1972
It seems that Peter Franks has finally got the upper hand in the Peter Franks — Tony King debate that has haunted Salient correspondence columns all year.
Last week, Franks and Roger Steele were appointed joint editors of Salient 1973. — Mr King your fate next year is sealed. However this doesn't mean that despair must take over. Both Peter Franks and Roger Steele have shown themselves to be volatile writers. Franks is versatile enough to write shit and brilliant critique. Certainly we can expect from these two a Salient of very professional proportions, and with a provocative and critical orientation.
Cappicade, has fallen to the clutches of that veteran of publications who is probably editing the magazine to complete the list, Graeme Collins. This means Cappicade will be good, meaning a lot better than the nondescript garbage that we were landed with this year.

Bryant. Nesbitt has promised the magazine will be 'grouse and real freaky', so next years freshers will be subverted earlier in the piece.
Unfortunately Argot, the associations literary magazine has been ignored in the grab for the more prestigious positions. Argot is possibly the least known of Varsity publications, yet is often the best. Someone must be interested in fostering literature so for your information the position of editor is still open.
Lastly we come to Treasurer, the man who does a lot of behind-the-scenes work. Warwyck Dewe proved both in Easter Tournament and in publications that he is efficient and his re-election was undoubtedly deserved. Still these Commerce gentlemen seem to share a golden thread, and like Byron Cullen, Warwyck will learn that money is a necessary evil, and is to be regarded sanely only in times of crisis.
This impressive line-up and enthusiastic team will spend every cent of your dollar levy for the revolution.
