Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 6. May 26, 1943

[Letter from Not Very, Very Amused to Salient Vol 6, No. 6. May 26, 1943]

Dear Sir,—Your correspondent says that there is a "very, very anti-Fascist" minority at the College. A minority of 99% incidentally.

Our student comrades in the Middle East are also very, very anti-Fascist. In fact, when they see a Fascist they shoot him. No doubt your correspondent thinks this is very extreme. He's all for moderation. He wouldn't have them go so far as this. Perhaps he would have them only cut off their ears, or if this is rather overdoing it, pelting them with breadcrumbs.

Your correspondent signs himself a law student. He should do very well at his profession. Is not a lawyer, sir, one who impartially defends right and wrong for money? There's no stopping a chap who's prepared to do it free.

—I am, Sir,

Very, very regretfully,

Not very, very Amused.
