Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 7. June 9, 1943
[Letter from M. F. Gray to Salient Vol. 6, No. 7. June 9, 1943]
—I was pleased to see that in your last issue the tone of the correspondence was of a far more serious vein. Previously so much of it has been of a frivolous and almost ridiculous nature, which at the present time is quite uncalled for. If the University is to share its part in the post-war reconstruction, thought should be given to ways and means now, and it seems that "an organ of student opinion" is as good a mouthpiece as any.
In peace time the position is vastly different, and articles and letters may be as trivial as you like, but with problems of such vast magnitude facing us of the younger generation, it is hardly right wasting newsprint on matters of little or no concern.
—I am, etc.,
M. F. Gray.
