Salient. Victoria University Students Newspaper. Volume 38 Number 8. 1975
In case you haven't noticed those nasty little scars on your legs, or haven't yet woken up scratching your back, Wellington is suffering a flea plague at the moment (only the first of the seven - wait for the earthquake). Salient hasn't been struck too badly yet (tho there may be holes in your copy by the time its finished), even with the presence of Inja Prendergast, a dog who is hereby proclaimed free of fleas and a friend of the people. The rest of the so far uninfected staff, in order of suspicion, are: Colin Feslier; John Henderson; Ross Abernethy; Peter Franks; Bryony Hales; Stephen Prendergast; Tony Robinson; Freeda Patrick; Sue Piper; Audrey Young; Phil Tree; David Tripe; John Ryall; John Roseveare; Stephen Underwood; Anthony Ward; and Ian S. Pilott. Typesetting was carried out in a cloud of flea powder by Janet Murphy, Stephen Prendergast fought his way into the darkroom for the photos, and advertising was collected by Christine Haggart and Stephen Prendergast.
The editor, and leader of the 'away with all fleas and other pests' campaign is Bruce Robinson, who can be abused in writing thru the Salient mail box, or P.O. Box 1347, Wellington. Salient is published by the Victoria University Students Association, and printed by Wanganui Newspapers Ltd, Drews [unclear: Avenue], Wanganui.
Watch out for those fleas, now!
