Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 12. June 28, 1939
Mr. Scotney stated that in his opinion the so-called "grievances" were merely a put-up job: that only one complaint from the full-timers had been received by the Exec, during the past two years: and that the reason why these "grievances" had been manufactured was that the fulltimers wished to get one of their members on the Exec.
The meeting closed with a sincere vote of thanks to the retiring President and the Executive.
Notes to readers of the above.
I wish to apologise sincerely for the baldness and lack of interest of the above report. I have endeavoured to make [unclear: a] report as colourful as possible without allowing my personal views to cloud the facts, but, as lack of interest always accompanies impartiality, the colour is mainly black.
I would mention that Mr. Mitchell has seen the position of this report dealing with the attack on "Salient," and has approved it as a correct report of the statements made.
