Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 6. May 26, 1943
Dear Readers (note the optimistic plural), each year this College produces a magazine known, for some obscure reason, as "Spike." It should, and occasionally does, represent the best thought and writing in the University. In this, one of our most difficult periods, we must prove that the vigour and freshness of student activity is not impaired but strengthened by the place it takes in the Dominion's struggle for an all-out war effort. Now, as at no other time, there is an abundance of subjects demanding your attention—the technique of modern warfare, both armed and economic, the part the universities must play, the contribution of this university, problems of post-war living, the stand taken by various political parties—a host of questions which should be, and can be, answered by members of V.U.C.
