Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 13 June 29, 1938

True Story

True Story

Dear "Salient"—

This is a matter of importance which I think should be brought to the notice of all students. The story is true. Briefly, here it is. Last week a boy and a girl went tothe pictures. The theatre being crowded, she sat at the end of a row three seats in front of him. Presently the girl was worried, as she though, by an insect and later began to feel rather queer. The woman next to her, noticing her restlessness, asked the girl if she were quite well and, on being told that she felt sick, the woman offered to go out with the girl. The boy, of course, followed, but the woman told him to go back as she, being a woman, could deal with the matter—if need be she could take the "poor girl" home in a taxi. The boy needn't worry cause she would arrange everything. But the boy told her to go to — and, putting the girl in a taxi, drove straight to Dr. —'s. The girl had become unconscious. The doctor said she had been heavily drugged by mean of a hypodermic syringe. Eviden by White Slave traffic is acting in Wallington.

Yours sincerely,

Helen Maysmor.
