Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 3. April 13, 1946

A Lying Jade

A Lying Jade

Rumour is a lying jade, but the fickle lady hath it that a Jack Rabbit, zealous History II Co-ed., bowed low with the more exclusive ennui of her sedentary entertainment, repaired to a distressingly inanimate typewriter and poured out heart and unblushing soul to the extent of two foolscap pages, which she unhesitatingly forwarded to the ever-amazed Editor of "Salient." Further to this unreliable information it is said that despite the acrimonious counsel of his sub-editors, the latter body with equal tenacity had the script in question duly printed and published with the consequent upheaval of University ethics and Victorian morals. Revolution in the raw was averted, however, by the swift and bloodless action of "Salient" sleuths, who with but a postage stamp and a rouge finger-print as available clues, rapidly hounded the culprit to a metropolitan Coffee Shoppe.

To alleviate reciprocal action, counter-espionage agents are reported to be working triple shift until possibilities of civic repercussion are gone. It Is understood that notwithstanding Imperial intervention "Salient" will continue to appear as before in the Main Hall on Wednesday, on the lunch table on Thursday, and at Moa Point by the week-end.
