Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 5, No. 1 March 26, 1942


Ever since the outbreak of war, many students have tended to regard the University as an institution where the search for pure learning, free from all partisan bias, has continued unaffected by the immense social changes at work outside. We have been in fact a neutral.

This session opens in a new phase of the war. The alignment of the democratic nations in one solid anti-fascist bloc removes all doubt as to the progressive nature of our war aims; removes all fears that the war may be "switched" and become a war to aid the fascist aggressors. The entry of Japan makes action urgent on the part of everyone.
