Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 5, No. 8. October 6, 1942

And Objection

And Objection

Dear Sir

Just because "Passer-by" has not been among the dash-washers of the College, let him not sneer at those who do this menial but essential task—rather let his apology be for not having done so. But I should acknowledge his kind remarks about the moribund Phoenix Club, to which the Misses Witheford and Schwimmer have been applying smelling salts throughout the year.

Incidentally, what about the Glee Club—a lot of inspiration for that from the women—and work—and who are the active members of club committees? Does the Writer know that the Secretary to the Executive is a woman," and the Secretary to the N.Z.U.S.A.? Also, women occupied the first two placing in the Plunket Medal, and a woman edited "Salient" last year, and is doing so this year.

I would recommend that "Passer-by" gets his facts right before bursting prematurely and inaccurately into print. Also, moderation is enjoined.
