Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 7. June 25, 1951



President Kevin O'Brien showed some traces of statesmanship when he wrote to "Freedom" defending Mr. Piper and the Socialist Club. It is true that the President, like the Editor of "Salient," is not seeking cheap martyrdom by flouting the Emergency Regulations, an attitude which seemed to annoy the Socialist Club.

Nevertheless, when "Freedom" advocated that any thoughts other than those approved and endorsed by the Prime Minister had no place in New Zealand today, Mr. O'Brien was quick to write to point out the meaning of a University.

It is to be hoped that whoever succeeds Kevin O'Brien will follow his example—obedience to the law, but firm defence of the University spirit, a defence extended in this case to a well known opponent over many an Exec. table.
