The Literary Page

The most striking comments on the literary page are undoubtedly those of Dr. J. C. Beaglehole, published on page 1. Of the others who remarked on this part of the paper Mr. Jamieson suggested that some of the poets might insert a little meaning in their verse, and Miss Johnson and Mr. Barker appealed for more writers of verse, although they quite rightly pointed out that "Salient" could not be blamed for the lack of them.

The majority of these contributors make no complaint about the present serious tone of the paper; but Mr. Jamieson would very much like more wit and humour, and Professor Kirk suggests that the appointment of class correspondents might not be a bad idea.
