Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 15. July 29, 1953
First, the investigation into the finances of Salient. readers will have read the article "Habeas Corpus" in the last issue of this paper, the writer there put forward the case for a compulsory Salient. The cost of printing 600 per week is £24 max.; the maximum cost of printing 2000 would be £37/10/-. But many of these 2000 copies would never be collected; however the Exec. would not lose, and neither would the person who collected a copy every week.
So much for Salient; an extra £50 has been granted by the Exec, to cover the additional costs of printing, etc., for this year it is a costly paper; yet many say that a University newspaper is essential. But what use is it if only a minority are Interested in it?
