Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 33 No. 14. 1970
The Salient Reporting Prize for 1969 has been won by Les Atkins, until recently deputy editor of Salient 1970.
His news story, "Tracker's Military Use Verified" (Salient 30 July 1969). was judged by Mr E.A.K. Swiney, a former editor of the Evening Post, as "a first class investigative and interpretative news story".
The prize consists of $25 of books.
Roger Wilde was close second and Jim Mitchell was third.
A rather unfortunate misprint is to be found in the last issue of Salient. In a certain ad, publicising rotten oranges, the word 'jews' should have read juice.
The arab proof reader who was responsible for the misprint has been dismissed.
