Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 9. July, 24, 1946
Dear Sir.—I wish to congratulate "Salient" for publishing the cartoon which appeared in the last issue. Cartoons in general help to brighten up the paper, especially when such healthy sentiments are expressed.
It has been said that the building of a cathedral in five years' time will not interfere with housing situation but I consider it absolutely utopian to expect the housing question to be solved to any great extent within this short time. We can have no objection to the various religious organisations canvassing their members for donations but the thousands of rationalists, atheists, non-conformists, Hindus, Confucians, etc., strongly object to people being coerced by a public body such as the City Council to contribute to an object for which they will never have any use. Many devout Christians are of the opinion that the money could be put to much better use by, say, increasing the salaries of the lower orders of the clergy.
