Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 1. 1965.



It is extraordinary how immature the public and "respectable" institutions are in their attitudes towards the University. The Auckland City Council occasionally reverts to the bitterness it felt when done out of rates by recent University expansion.

Councillors never cease to stress the importance of civic pride (when money is not lost over it), but whereas in Britain, the United States, Germany and so on, a University in the heart of the city is an institution to be proud of, in Auckland culture must never, it seems, take predominance over cash—Outspoke, University of Auckland.

Is not God wonderful? Thousands of years ago no one had heard of glasses, yet look where our ears are.
