Salient: An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 12, No. 3, April 6th, 1949.
By February of this year, "since nothing further had been heard of this sub-committee it became clear that either the sub-committee had placed too wide an interpretation on the words, "about September'" or else had gone the way of all good sub-committees. Therefore, the Exec, decided to take things into its own hands. It was agreed that owing to the default of the Jubilee committee the Extrav. would have to be written by present students as in the past. Therefore a notice was posted calling for scripts, setting a dead-line at March 3rd later extended to March 29th. The position at the moment is that there are two scripts in the hands of the selectors, and by the time that your issue appears, the casting meeting will be imminent.
The lash of your front-page streamer has provoked the Executive into committing itself to print and perhaps you feel that this in itself is an achievement worthy of satisfaction (We had previously held the opinion that nothing short of tidal wave or famine could stir the Exec, to action of any sort.—Ed.) However I would recommend that the next time you feel you "would like very much to know when the Exec, will actually do something" you refer yourself in the obvious manner, to the minutes of the Executive which are recorded in Scientific prose for the purpose of dispelling such ignorance as that of which you have been the unwitting victims.
