Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 6, No. 10 July 28, 1943
Another campaign has been held and has received well-deserved support. We know ourselves how tough it is to fight off our moronic examination system without essential texts. How much more difficult must it be when in camp, cut off from libraries and fellow students?
Army Education have done their best, but difficulties are very great. And now Victoria has rallied round—over two hundred volumes were handed over the table last week. Good stuff, too! History, Chemistry, Maths, English set books. Education, Psychology, piles of Law books, all in pretty good condition.
For the response, thanks are due to all those students who were kind enough to ransack their shelves; for the collection, to those who assisted in the hall; and for the idea and the organisation, Dave Cohen, Cecil Crompton and Gay Vance.
