Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 7, No. 5 June 21, 1944

Generally, I should say, the matter of the book consists of scientific and technical terms thrown a into a matrix of general knowledge; the whole being garnished with a few interesting sidelights on the relations between industry, the pro letariat, science and politics. In fact we might call it a meal of "Dry Hash."
