Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 6. May 28, 1947



The strike is costing the studios plenty; the technicoiour workers are out and an attempt to process several thousand feet of Him by inexperienced workers necessitated the shooting of most of the film a second time. All Hollywood theatres showing American films are picketed, but several theatres are showing British and French films for the benefit of those boycotting American ones. Priestley's "They Came to a City" was enjoying tremendous popularity when we were there.

A recent development in the strike was the bombing of a house belonging to an A. F. of L. unionist. For this several of the strikers were arrested and are being held for trial. They, however, assert that it was carried out by A. F. of L. men, who, they say, would not stop at murder, even of their own men, if it would help their case. In spite of all this the public 1B apathetic. An average comment on the Sorrell affair, "Yeah, they shore got him, didn't they."
