Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 9. June 25, 1947
[Editors reply to Maurice F. McIntyre]
1. "Salient" may express opinion. If readers accept this as dogma, that is their business.
2. The theory of evolution is still a theory, which better fits the facts than any other idea so far advanced. The approval of Professors Ford and Whittard concerned the scientific approval of the facts presented.
3. "Solely a matter for teachers to decide" referred to the previous sentence, which read: "We wish to emphasise that no school is compelled to take the broadcasts, but each year increasing numbers do so."
4. The authorities conceded to the vociferous protest of a small minority without consultation of teachers or anyone else, without explanations and reason, and most certainly without a consideration of the case on its merits.
