Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 8. May 31, 1939
The next method suggested would [unclear: be] to put little N.Z. lock, stock and barrel on the World's market. Surely, with what we have spent on Public Works in improvements and with what we possess in the way of sheep and horseflesh we could demand a good price. In fact it seems an ideal time to transact such a deal. Most or our best material and talent goes abroad in any case so we might as well sell the lot at a fair profit pay off our debts, and at the same time have a little pocket money of our own. It is either a question of doing the soiling ourselves or of being "sold" and it is up to every one of us to decide which it is going to be.
