Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 5. May 5, 1943
O.U. Stud. Ass. on April 11th decided in committee to dismiss the entire "Critic" staff ("Critic" is the O.U. student paper). The following day the decision was announced without explanation to the students, editor or staff. All copy—"Critic" was due to go to press that day—was confiscated by the Executive.
Students, stirred out of their usual apathy, became indignant and one faculty had a meeting, instructing their council delegates to vote against the Executive on a vote of no-confidence if necessary. Other faculties would have prepared to do the same had not the Executive reversed their decision.
