Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 37, Number 5. 3rd April 1974




I have just finished reading "Letters to the Ed" as a sequel to the article on Page 2, "SRC Apathy"

Many of the letters contained various complaints of bad food in the cafe, dirty windows in the library, the dictatorship of the left (whatever that is!) et al.

If all the frantic writers to editors, and in that book in Studass Office, all complainers and moaners to all and sundry about every bloody thing they think is wrong in this place were to attend the SRC meetings, get off their big (or small) arses and offer themselves for the committees that work on these matters then perhaps there would be less to complain about. Perhaps the food would be better, the library windows clean and the alleged "dictatorship" of the left would be seen in its perspective. Of course it probably doesn't suit the moaners to have nothing to complain about which is why they don't do anything.
