Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 15, No. 4. March 27, 1952
Sir,—It has of late come forcibly to my notice that there has recently been in this College, an inundation of persons not previously observed hereabouts. Now, sir, it is not my wish to complain, but this is a phenomenon which I have observed every year since the year after I first started here, and it is something to which I take exception. I have come to the conclusion that every year at about this time the same sort of thing happens; it doesn't last long because after the first two or three weeks nobody sees these persons again, and a jolly good thing too I should say. I like to see the old faces, and to know that no matter what happens nobody will ever do anything. Do you think, sir, that in order to save me this untold strain of seeing these new people every year for two weeks, it would be possible to arrange to see that they do not come here at all. Surely it would not make any difference, would it? Sorry to end my letter with a question mark.—Yours, etc., Student.
