Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 7 June 19, 1946

[Letter from M.J. Poole to the Manager, Commercial Printing Co. 1946]

The Manager.

Commercial Printing Co. Ltd.

Dear Sir,

The following is an extract from the minutes of meeting of Executive held on Thursday, May 23, 1946;

"Moved Mr. Poole, seconded Miss Keys, that the Editor 'Salient' be instructed to publish, on the front page of the next issue of 'Salient' a retraction of the editorial entitled 'Our Judgment.' this retraction to be prefaced by a statement expressing the Editor's regrets that he omitted to do this in the last issue. Mr. Campbell and Mr. Cohen to be responsible for seeing that this was done.—Carried."

As "Salient" is the official organ of the Association, the Executive will not assume responsibility for payment of your account if the issue in your hands is handed over for distribution without containing the matter referred to above.

Yours faithfully,

M. J. Poole, Secretary

Not only has the Executive, both as a body and as individuals failed to inform the Editor of this odd motion, unique in the history of VUCSA; not only on the eve of press has Mr. Poole assumed the role of Editor Extraordinary without the cognizance of a single student in the college, demanding to an amazed printer that he publish a stupefying series of statements in an issue already overset with routine reports; Not all this Without Mr. Marcus J. Poole of the Esteemed Legal Profession Descending to this Low Level of Coercion in Order to Gain his Own Ill-Deserved Ends.

Nor is "Salient" the "Official" organ of Student Opinion.
