Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 16 July 16, 1968
Last issue incorrectly attributed a statement to Education Officer Candy McGrath which said that "The Language departments want large classes for their own importance and others aren't prepared to rock the boat."
This paragraph was included in a report on page 16 about a discussion on the merits of the foreign language requirement for the BA degree. The statement is a badly reported version of what Barrie Saunders who led the discussion said. What he actually said was that language departments opposed the abolition of the foreign language requirement mainly because they didn't want to be reduced in size. Ed.
