Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Student's Newspaper. Volume 31, Number 1. March 3 1968

Thirty years old

Thirty years old

It is an embarrassing thing for Salient to have reached the venerable age of thirty.

Started in reaction to its aloof and apolitical predecessor, Salient over the first years built up a tradition of healthy radicalism, and the respectability that its thirty years now implies is the one thing Salient has tried to avoid.

It believes that students are qualified to hold views on political and social matters and is the vehicle for these views. More than occasionally its vigour is at the expense of being ill-considered.

In these things Salient is very much the same now as it was when it started.

Britain has fallen; Salient remains.
