Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25. No. 13. 1962
Sir,—I am struck by a certain similarity between the statement on security made by Brigadier Gilbert, and the statement in Reply from the Communist Party.
Both statements were childish and petty, both were couched in the familiar and tiresome Jargon of the propagandist, and neither were in any way appropriate to the Now Zealand scene.
I should like to mention one point in particular. II the majority of New Zealanders disapproved of our staying in the Western Alliance they would have long ago elected a communist government. They have not.
Now that Mr White is retiring, may 1 the opportunity to thank him for or congratulate him on, or what-have-you, on working Salient into a fairly decent I am also delighted to hear that he intends to pay the cartoonist Yours, etc., Harold Hill.
So does his successor—Editor.
