Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 4 March 30, 1938

On Reading Editorials

On Reading Editorials

Nobody ever reads leaders. I know that. But I have allowed myself to cherish the fond hope that there may be one or two people who, attracted by the novelty of a new publication, have even been led by natural curiosity to the lengths of reading the editorials.

There are nearly 1,000 students at V.U.C. and the number of interests which they represent is considerable. No doubt it will not be possible for all these to read these columns with an equal degree of pleasure, but serious attempts are being made to cater for as many of the students as is possible.

To obtain variety "Salient" is going to try two ideas. Firstly, there will be a "guest editor"—a student or a recently graduated student will run the paper for a week and so give you something fresh. Secondly, students should not forget the words written in white on the first page. In order to make "Salient" what that statement proclaims it to be any student who would like to do so, and who has material which he thinks would be suitable for a leading article, is asked to let us have it when the spirit moves.

There is no reason for reticence. There are many of you who can do the job. We want your ideas, so let us have them.

If this is done, the paper will gain in value in many ways.

You are not asked to accept all the ideas put forward as gospel truth. But we will try to make them interesting, and upon subjects of importance.
