Your Slip Is Showing

Your Slip Is Showing

Sir,—Your paper has very graciously published our article which had been overlooked in your previous number. We thank you for this small mercy. You complained bitterly that you had no information about this year's Wellington-Masterton road race while our report—"eritical" this time since mere reporting of events does not interest your readers—was sitting in, your letter rack marked with the assistant sports editor's name. To accompany this same initial report, the club had procured carefully from the Evening Post a block photo of the change over in the race this year and you were pleased to publish it and label it last year.

This mismanagement is understandable in the decadent weekly which Salient is fast becoming: but we do object to the bumptious patronizing overbearing arrogant attitude your various sports writers adopt towards sport and sports clubs of the college. We ask you Sir, to see that they mend their ways, and we are looking forward to your editorial comment should this letter be published.


, Harrier Club.

(Here it comes. The slip was due to the fact that both of the Sports Editors were absent for some time: the block was mistaken for one which slipped up last year and did not arrive until after publication date then. We are quite prepared to acknowledge the error and apologise for it. We publish this letter although the correspondent could well learn that abuse is no valid argument.Ed.)
