Next Year's Editor

The present co-editor of Argot, David Harcourt (pictured) has been appointed editor of Salient for 1970, subject to ratification by Executive.

For the third consecutive year only one application was received.

"Some aspects of Salient over the last two years should be re-examined," David said after his appointment.

"News coverage has, in the main, been inadequate."

"Some specific bad features such as the literary pages and the 'Outside Left' column should be eliminated," he said.

"Finally the standard of material generally should be raised.

"Some news reports, feature articles and reviews published in the past have been very badly written."

David said he intended to separate the magazine and news functions of Salient to some extent.

"Salient's contents in 1970 will alternate between a 'feature' issue, dealing with a single topic, and a more general issue which will include reviews, general features and so on," he said.

"Any student who is interested in assisting with the production of Salient next year should contact me.

"We will need staff badly."

There were two abstentions from his appointment, Roger Wilde and Bill Logan.
