Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 4. April 27, 1959



One speaker threatened the audience with venereal diseases in a somewhat naive manner, apparently ignorant of the modern effective prevention and cure methods.

Yet another speaker, for the negative, said he didn't mind admitting his own weaknesses, but still believed in the ideal of chastity as St. Augustine did.

He said chastity was not outmoded. Though many nice young girls told him they preferred to marry a man with experience, they still believed in their own virginity.

Most men present would agree with him in that they preferred to page 2 marry a virgin, though not virgins themselves if only for the reason was that it was a greater sacrifice for a girl to give up her virginity than it was for a man.
