Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 1, No. 1. March 9, 1938

Et Tu, Nash?

Et Tu, Nash?

"Are University students qualified to hold political opinions?"

Mr. Nash laughed.

Caricture of Walter Nash

"Well, what opinions can be held other than political opinions?

"There are religious, social and philosophical questions, and problems of conduct. One of the objects of the University is to provide the environment, together with the material, for the mind to function. Upon the functioning of the mind depends the good or ill of the community. The opinions of University students, however, should not be respected merely because the holders of those opinions are University students—although they may have more facilities than the ordinary man—but should be valued according to their own Intrinsic worth.
