Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 5. May 5, 1943

Socialist Students

Socialist Students.

In the Soviet Union today students are trained primarily as citizens, and it is interesting to us that those students attending lectures are only under obligation to attend them in their first year.

In reply to a rather naive question from the floor the speaker stated that the difference between the governments of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany is this—the State is the organ of the ruling class and in Germany the government represents a small group of capitalists whereas in the Soviet Union the government represents the people.

Among the evergreen students of Marxism the "Salient" reporter saw Messrs. Riske and Miller, who both made their characteristic contributions to the discussion.
