Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 13. September 12, 1957


The mothers of this country would certainly not like their third form daughters to read the 'Sea Hunters by Frank Robb," said Mrs. McMillan in the House of Representatives.

"The tale is told in a racy sort of seafaring language, but there are innumerable books which children can enjoy without giving them ideas of words and phrases which they will pick up all too soon out of the byways and gutters."

Government voice: "What about the Bible?"

"We all know such words are in the Holy Writ," said Mrs. McMillan, "but we don't go taking them out and distributing them to Form III girls."
