Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 16 July 16, 1968

. . not a paper ?

. . not a paper ?

Sir—Whilst browsing through past issues of Salient, I was particularly impressed with the large contingent of reporters listed on the staff. 29 reporters were named in the April 23 and 30 issues. Last week's issue (June 18) showed a list of 15 reporters (two names being published twice). I can only associate Salient's recent lack of spontaneous and informed reporting of Internal activities as a result of this decrease.

The prevelance of politics, personal Criticisms, and Owen Gager has reduced Salient to a dull, uninspiring periodical. which might well be published monthly for the amount of topical news it covers.

Why wasn't Prof, England's obituary published sooner? why isn't the Varsity Radio Show mentioned?

I feel that Salient's function as student newspaper is not being realised by the present staff, who seem more Interested in exploiting Salient as a means of egotistical elevation. Recent issue are a discredit to Salient, which has been, and coud again be recognised as the best N.Z. students' newspaper.

Yours sincerely,

G. J. Nesbitt
