Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 8. 1965.

Salient Censorship?

Salient Censorship?

Dear Sirs,—I read with interest your column "On the Grapevine," in the Salient issue of June 15. In this you state your refusal to print a statement made by Mr. Kinsella about the Government education building programme. I seem to recall the NZBC refusing to broadcast a certain programme by Professor Herd of Otago some weeks ago. Surely Salient is not going to resort to similar practices? If the Minister has something to say, why shouldn't we the student body hear it? Why can't the salient points of Mr. Kinsella's statement be printed in a shortened article, if 2500 words takes up so much of Salient's valuable space?

John H. Bradbury

Our correspondent will find the salient points he seeks on the same page as the comment he refers to, under the heading "Impressive Development for Victoria."—Editors.
