Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 14. July 12, 1939
No symposium would be complete without reference to the backbone of the institution—Brookie; so we visited his palatial workshop. He was rather hostile at first, but soon became eloquent when we mentioned the magic word "Salient." Evidently he had very strong opinions on some points. Yes, he had been guilty of calling it a "rag," and apparently he would continue to do so in the future—still, at the end he did agree that it was not a bad paper after all. What he wanted in the "rag" and in the College was more fun and wit, providing it was kept in the right place. He informed us that he could supply us with a lot, but he would not let us publish it. I'm sure Brookie gets a lot of fun out of us but then quite often we think something very funny and Brookie simply fails to see the point.
