Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 21, No. 10. August 6, 1958
—As a "fool"-time student who has studied closely the female form at Victoria, I feel I must protest against Ivor Grudge, who complains at the dress of Victoria's women students. I have noticed that the women around "Vic" who are the most smartly dressed are also the wickedest looking and it is understandable that they should attempt to make up the leeway.
Ivor Grudge presumes that the reason why women attend University is to get a man. May I inform her she is wrong; they are here to have a "damned" good time.
Also if she thinks that being smartly dressed is the way to catch a man she is wrong. My psychology notes say that it is basically the sex-drive that makes marriages and thus it is not the clothes a girl wears that matters, but what she's got underneath them.
Anyway, if 90% of Victoria's men students (excluding part-timers to whom the money drive is more powerful than sex) can dress like slobs, why shouldn't the women?
