Letters header with a dog and a cat

Last week we explained that we print all the letters we receive, with the exception of those which are legally defamatory or obscene. We held back a couple more this week for that reason, including letters from 'Puke'and 'Fair Deal: This week we have had to decline to print several other letters which demanded answers that cannot be given, as this is the last issue of Salient for 1973. Among these were some repellent, incoherent, white-racist raves from C.L. Frederick, 'Victoria Whitist Society', J.K.Q. Stuhjohm, J.L. Peters, and 'Patriot', all of which transgressed the Race Relations Act anyway, and were not fit for a toilet wall We have not published the signatures of several letters from Malaysian and Singaporean students, which are mainly on the De Silva affair, because of the probability that the writers would be persecuted on return to their home countries.

We thank all those who have written letters to Salient, they have certainly made the paper livelier. Don't write anymore for a while, folks, save them up for next year.
