Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 33, No. 1 18 February 1970
Craccum, the Auckland University Students' Association's newspaper, is to be published weekly this year.
This was approved in principle by the Auckland Executive on 15 January. Craccum and Salient will be the only weekly student newspapers in 1970. Critic, from Otago, is unlikely to be published weekly for some time and Canta, Canterbury University's newspaper, will be a fort-nightly again this year.
The question of weekly publication of Canta in 1970 was raised at Canterbury's SRC in June, last year. However a motion to the effect that "the publications committee investigate the possibility of a weekly Canta in 1970" was defeated. Allied proposals at Canterbury for the purchase of a typesetting machine similar to that now used in the production of Salient also appear to have collapsed. An item in the Executive minutes of 18 September noted that "the present editor (Graham Culliford) has recommended that purchase of this be not proceeded with. Mr Ross (an Executive member) will continue to investigate the feasibility of the machine."
