The latest student broadsheet. "Falus," has appeared at Otago University.

Anonymously cyclostyled, these broadsheets are a periodic feature of New Zealand student life. Auckland's "Wreccum" has a tradition going back some years.

Otago's broadsheet earned itself some notoriety by finding its way into copies of the student paper "Critic." Since the broadsheet attacked Critic's editors, their innocence was as obvious as their amusement.

Falus has seen two issues, and the predominant theme of its eight duplicated pages has been Vietnam. Poetry of various merit on the conflict has been published, and so have psuedo news-flashes.

• "A company of United States troops today engaged 3000 Vietcong, killing 2900. The survivors escaped, taking their dead with them."
