Salient: An organ of student opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 23, No. 4. Wednesday, May 4, 1960

Who's Sick Now?

Who's Sick Now?

Sir,—Avoid troubling about such things as "Why don't you attack something."

Why bother? You have the finest little country in the world. All you have to do is to spend so many years enjoying University life and then get a nice little place in the Hutt. Then sit back and enjoy rugby, grog, the Catholic Church and all the other captivating aspects of New Zealand life. If you don't die of boredom, happiness is yours. If that fails then there is always the marmalade Christianity of the Social Security Department to fall back on.

But don't get sick man, because that's somewhat futile when there is nothing to be sick about.

Yours insincerely,

D. S. Thomas.
