Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 6, No. 6. May 26, 1943
Sad to relate, there still remains at this college a sub-hominoid species of student whose main delight is in the organised and wholesale destruction of the enojoyment of others. Their activities are in no way limited to joyous and riotous celebration on appropriate occasions, in itself a pleasant occupation, but extend into the crude and obvious channel of the practical Joke. Even the practical Joke, when applied by a man of wit and ingenuity, can he a thing of beauty, a delight to watch. But in the hands of these morons . . . my god!
