Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 9. June 27, 1957

R.C.'s Object

R.C.'s Object

Your report on the University Catholic Society Conference ("Salient 13.6.57) was headed "R.C's Confer". I agree that title Roman Catholic is that given to the Church officially in New Zealand. But it is one to which Catholics object, particularly in ordinary reports and statements and your courtesy in refraining from using it in future references would be welcomed.

Custom and precedent in the College support this request—the Catholic Students Guild has used and been given that title Since its foundation.

The report contains two [unclear: inaccuracies]:
(a)It was not suggested that an observer be sent to the African Seminar of Pas Romans the International Catholic Student body) Two separate motions appear to have been confused to get this result.
(b)It has not yet been decided that the 1958 U.C.S. Congress will be held at Raumati. The venue will not be decided until the Congress Committee is convened.

I should particularly appreciate publication of the latter correction.
