Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 2. March 16, 1938

No Man's Land

No Man's Land

Dear "Salient,"

I expected your staff to set a high standard in the first issue and I was not disappointed. The attractive appearance of the paper and the readable articles were excellent. One small article, however, marred the paper: "Advice to Old Maids." Why waste your space, when your stall is capable of using it to better advantage? The article was merely a smutty attempt at smart humour. Perhaps it would raise a laugh at a smoke concert, but your average reader has not the "advantage" of the smoke concert atmosphere. It is unpleasant to find in "Salient" an article which you would expect to find in the Journals mentioned in J.D.F.'s "For Embryo Dons." My advice, sincerely offered, is; "Be clean, dear 'Salient,' and let who will. Be clever."

—Yours faithfully.

J. B. Aimers.
