Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 8. May 31, 1939

[introduction]

Those who saw "The Vikings" in this year's extravaganza will remember the first act in which Nev, sells to Hit, a number of coloured cloths —the Austrian, the Spanish and the Czech clothes are all of them mentioned. Finally Nev, palls from his portmanteau marked "Munich." a piece of "red, white and blue bunting."

This incident troubled many, including Mr. Trevor Lane, who commented on it in his "Radio Record."

"Last night," writes Mr. Lane, "I watched the antics of a coming generation in a Varsity revue in Wellington. I saw with disgust a caricature of Chamberlain sell a British flag to a stage Hitler. Perhaps it was meant to be funny, but it misfired as it deserved to."
