Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 17. August 9, 1939

Talkies

Talkies.

There were fourteen debates, most of which were non-decision, but the team won debates against Sydney. Melbourne and Adelaide Universities. Lectures and luncheon talks became a habit, and radio work was frequent. O'Callaghan gave two State network talks, and Aimers gave a National Network talk on the New Zealand Government. (Everywhere the question was asked: "What is your Government really doing?") There were several radio interviews, a radio discussion, and a talk on New Zealand Universities and student activities. In Hobart we told the listeners that their harbour was more beautiful than Sydney Harbour, although at that stage we had not even seen Hobart Harbour. The good old policy of giving the public what it likes—or what we thought it would like.

The Melbourne Students' Union building, which turned Aimers green with envy!
