Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 20. Thursday, September 7, 1950


The most outstanding; single event that we at Victoria have known for a long time took place on the first Saturday evening of the recent vacation. It isn't possible for me to convey adequately the impact that all those present felt: this report, written some time after the event, may be a little distorted by personal notions.

The Rev. Canon C. E. Raven, D.D., D.Sc., F.B.A., Regius Professor of Divinity, Master of Christs College and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, addressed a meeting convened by the SCM. He knew. I suppose, that we in N.Z. gather every now and again to hear some person of reputed fame, and sometimes are disappointed. He said, anyway, that he had not come from the other side of the world just to talk platitudes—he was as good as his word. We must forgive him, he said, if he sounded dogmatic; time was short and we could ask questions afterwards.
