Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 14. July 12, 1939

Mr. R. W. Edgley

Mr. R. W. Edgley.

You have asked for my opinion of "Salient". At the outset, I would say that the paper is most capably and efficiently controlled. It is out on time unfailingly, with all its space filled, and I have never made a request for the insertion of any notice on behalf of the Executive which has not received immediate attention.

Regarding the policy of the paper, this does not receive the unqualified approval of the College—it would be an extraordinary, and probably a poor sort of paper that did. I would not be surprised to learn that the views expressed in the paper do not represent the opinions of the majority of the students of the College. But these views appear to me to express the opinions of the majority of those students who take a really active part in College affairs, and in social and political problems. Whether the policy of the paper represents the opinions of the majority of the students could only be determined by taking the sum totals of all the personal opinions of the students.

I feel at times that there could be more College news in the paper. This again is purely a matter of personal opinion, and probably a lot of matter inserted in lieu of College news is of considerable interest, and assists to make the paper a more balanced one. Personally, however, I would prefer to have film reviews omitted. Such are my comments for what they are worth.
