Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 11. June 21, 1939
[Letter to Salient from Ewen Cardale, 1939]
The Editor "Salient."
Dear Sir—On behalf of the full-time students present at the meeting on June 9th may I congratulate you on your excellent unbiassed report of that meeting. I noted that your two reporters and two other hangers-on constituted the opposition at the meeting, and that you had wisely chosen women reporters. What can we mere males do in the face of an opposition trained in gossip and other feminine arts, who moreover had the job of publishing the meeting to the world.
Apart from the fact that the many legitimate grievances of the full thing students were naturally not mentioned, the only really inaccurate statements in the first two paragraphs were the report of my remarks, my bers of the present executive are shell-backed fossils of the 1920 vintage." Apparently that statement should also be extended to their suporters that they appointed to "Salient."—I humbly beg to remain. Yours sincerely,
