Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 12. June 28, 1939

Mr. Mitchell's Points

Mr. Mitchell's Points

Mr. Mitchell, speaking against the motion and opposing Mr. Edgley's remarks, made the following points—
(a)That "Sallent's" policy did not represent the opinions of the majority of V.U.C. students.
(b)That generally the articles in "Salient" were one-sided and blassed.
(c)That contributions to "Salient" which expressed different views to those held by the staff mainly responsible for "Salient's" production, were deliberately withheld.
(d)That a letter written by Mr. Mitchell in reply to an article in "Salient" was not published.
(e)That it was unfair to compel those who disagreed entirely with "Salient's" policy to subscribe to it.
(f)That a University paper was not the place for political articles except where students were affected.
(g)That there was much too little college news in "Salient."
Mr. Cardale, supporting Mr. Mitchell, besides emphasising the above points, made two more:—
(a)That the subscriptions to "Salient" were much lower this year than last year.
(b)That "Salient" was worthless.

Other speakers supported Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Cardale by means of Interjections.
