Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 1, No. 1. March 9, 1938
This College, Victoria, has been described variously as a venerable pile, a hotbed of radicalism and a cute little chapel. To accept any of these would be to accept an attitude, so if you are an enterprising Fresher you will walk about it for yourself, say nothing and see everything.
If you stand in the hall where the Big Dogs foregather and you can appear to be credulous and reverent they will look kindly towards you and you will join any of their clubs under patronage. And you are advised to join clubs—mental stimulation or College Spirit are the usual reasons given to support this advice, but, nevertheless, make up your mind to be enthusiastic about something. If you have any Ideas and are prepared to back them against anyone's cynicism you will have a chance eventually to put them into effect, and Victoria needs people with ideas—may be you have noticed that.
