Salient: Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Vol. 32, No. 6. 1969.
Today is Open Day.
"Open Day provides", in the words of the President of the Students Association Gerard Curry, an opportunity to see students engaged in their many activities — academic, cultural and sporting.
If visitors are really interested in observing students engaged in these delightful pursuits, they can do no better than extract the proverbial dollar, hand it into the Students Association Office or the Salient Office and they will receive 25 issues of their favourite newspaper, which in fact they are reading at the moment.
Today, you may notice, we are printing a justification of censorship by no less a distinguished personage as Mr Stuart Perry.
Mr Perry has been a member of the Indecent Publications Board since is inception.
He has also written a book on its activities.
There could be few more appropriate persons to write that article in the country.
And he writes for Salient.
Which just goes to show what a good fellow is Stuart Perry.
But that's not all.
No-one else printed the full text of Mr Muldoon's Curious Cove speech on the University and the economy, now an eagerly sought after script.
No-one else runs such authoritative, responsible and stimulating copy as Salient, be it features, reviews or just plain keeping you informed.
The presentation is so sophisticated too.
A dollar a year, posted weekly.
The mind boggles.
