Editorial — What Does It Take?
What Does It Take?
Opinions expressed in Salient are not necessarily those of VUWSA. March 26, 1969
Last week's lead news story was a hoax. Nobody seems to have noticed, or if they did, they didn't tell us.
Because of the apparent lack of interest we will publish less news stories. Writing news stories is dull and difficult. There are few which we are genuinely interested in writing. These we will continue to publish. The rest will be published as space permits.
Reviews will replace straight news reports of speeches and debates. Reports of meetings will be extensively culled to ensure only the most newsworthy aspects are printed.
The opinion which takes it's place, however, must be good opinion.
Last week's editorial was constructed to encourage criticism. The result was negligible.
