Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 12. September 20, 1951

Phony Excuse

Phony Excuse

A regrettable by-product of the election was the introduction of telephone numbers into the Wellington Central campaign. The Socialist Club used their usual missionary zeal and their associated Student Labour Federation produced a "horror" pamphlet showing a soldier whose face had been blown away. (It was not clear if in a "just" war or an "imperialist" war.)

However, the organiser quoted his (Government) office telephone number on one of the pamphlets and eventually lost his job over it.

This writer looks on elections as good, clean fun and both incidents seemed regrettable.
