Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 7 July 2, 1941



Among the supporters of the motion we remember the Rev. Mr. Newell, who spoke of such old favourites as the "normal and natural man," "our, true selves" and the "kingdom of God" (called "realm" in this republican age), his seconder Ngaire Craig, whose mediaeval logical treatment seemed quite a good approach to the problem, though her arguments would have suffered great havoc if our dialectic philosophers had been up to form; Bert Foley (of course) wanting one church (his'n) to unite the world; Harry Bowyer, Lili Li (she at least was sincere) and —Stewart Devine and—Lindsay Nathan (!). Lindsay was at his craziest and showed that Christ was an atheist, and the founder of the Third International. This and other insincere speeches gave an undesirable air of levity to the proceedings.
