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

Council Rejects Students' Motion

Council Rejects Students' Motion

A motion was passed at a special meeting of the Students' Association last year that "Salient" be supplied free to students of the College, the Association fee being raised to 27/6 to meet this expense. Even with this increase our fees would be lower than those of the other colleges in New Zealand.

This motion was rejected by the College Council. It is apparently felt that a University newspaper should stand or fall by its own merits (an argument which might equally apply to sports and other clubs). Unfortunately there appears to be a vicious circle, students being unwilling to support "Salient" until a more pretentious format is adopted, which in turn is obviously impossible until the students support the paper.

Your continued support will alone be able to improve our position and to make possible a return to a printed "Salient."
