Some vital questions

Some vital questions

The next few weeks will be vital to the security of South East Asia and questions now being posed may be answered. Will Hanoi be prepared to negotiate for peace? Will Thailand enter the Indo China War? And finally the most important question. How far will Richard Nixon be prepared to go to insure America does not become a Second Rate Power?

The answers to these questions will determine whether or not peace in South East Asia will be attained.

Scots College is a Wellington private school for the sons of gentlefolk. "A Scots boy," parents of prospective students are told, "has a great and honourable tradition to uphold, a tradition set and maintained by those who are now Old Boys of the School. He is expected to maintain this standard of behaviour at all times, in school and travelling to and from school. His dress, his bearing, his courtesy, his thoughtfulness, should mark him as a Scots boy." By way of introduction to the school, we print in the adjacent columns the text of the prize-winning speech in the intermediate section of the Scots College Public Speaking Contest this year. Grammar and spelling remain unchanged from the original. Four Salient Editors in the last five years were ex pupils of Scots College.
