Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 8 July, 3, 1946

[Letter from Pro Bono Discipulorum to Salient Vol. 9, No. 8 July, 3, 1946]

Dear Sir.—At the AGM we heard a lot of emotive oratory on the question of "extraneous political and personal" matter filtering into the affairs of the Association.

Last week a circular which was a scurrilous personal attack on the Editor of your paper was handed out. It contained many misrepresentations of fact and several deliberate and direct lies. I agree entirely with the motion passed at the Annual General Meeting if only because it may be a deterren, to these persons who haven't the guts to sign their names to libellous statements which they had typed down town and distributed in the Main Hall of the College.

The Implication of a number of the speakers at the AGM was that those "horrid Reds" were undermining our honourable structure yet this, the worst offence against personal character yet perpetrated in this College, obviously did not come from anyone even "Pale Pink." If reads like a Fascist indictment and has just that amount of truth in it.

—Yours sincerely,

"Pro Bono Discipulorum."
