Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 1 March 12, 1941

At last the Lowdown!

At last the Lowdown!

Mr. Menzies gave his opinion that there were places for tourists to see, but that the messes of Russia were far from happy. He instanced the case of a friend who carrying provisions with him on a journey through U.S.S.R. took pity on the hungry crowds and decided to give them a loaf of his bread. Before he had passed the bread through the railway carriage window the fighting mob had crumbled it to waste, so starving were they.

Mr. Menzies was then obliged to return on the stage, and so "Salient" left, strongly impressed by his personality and friendliness. Whether we differ or agree with his opinions we must admit that they are the opinions of an undoubtedly sincere man.
