Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 11 June 15, 1938


"Salient" was very intrigued with two objects in the Chinese Consul's office namely, an exquisite Chinese cigarette box, and two volumes of H, G. Wells ("Outlines of World History" and "Wealth and Happiness of Mankind") taking pride or place in a bookcase of Chinese books.

"What is the idea of dropping leaflets over, Japan Instead of bombs?" asked "Salient."

"We are fighting the Japanese militarists or war lords, not the people, and although the war has been going on for 11 months we are still trying to get the Japanese people to understand the true position. We do not want to fight them—they are innocent, under the oppression of war lords. They are being ruined by an ambitious military cliche who are riding Japan to [unclear: ruin]; and I hope the people will reverse this policy before ruin overtakes them."
