Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 3, No. 6

The Editor,


It is with regret that we announce to our many subscribers that we have temporarily ceased publication. The reason for this is that last week the Superintendent of Police visited our printer and warned him of the risk he was running in continuing to print Tomorrow. The Superintendent pointed out that the Police have power to seize any printing press and they would not hesitate to use this power if any subversive articles were printed. The Editor was similarly warned. After the visit our printer informed us that he was not prepared to print any further issues of the journal.

Readers will recall that under the Emergency legislation "Subversion" is very vaguely defined, so that almost any critical writing might be regarded as subversive. Consequently no printer is prepared to print Tomorrow, and, in effect, we have been suppressed under legislation passed by the first N.Z. Labour Government. New Zealand has now no independent, critical journal.

At the moment a wave of hysteria is sweeping the country. It may be that an opportunity to commence publication again will occur in a few months. In the meantime however, we are forced to discontinue. We thank our many subscribers and well-wishers for support in the past and hope they will do anything they can in order to make it possible for Tomorrow to reappear in the near future.
