V Literary Quarterly and a book of literary gems?

By

The Varsitarian, student publication of the University of Sto. Tomas, threw a big 85th anniversary bash for staff alumni at the Sofitel Hotel last Saturday night, capped by a beautiful fireworks display beside Manila Bay. The V has the right to be proud of itself for having survived 85 years of trials and tribulations, including a world war and an enemy occupation, martial law and two revolutions. It is now not only older than most campus publications in the country, and V alumni now occupy important positions in print, radio, television and advertising. Three of them are now National Artists—two for Literature (F. Sionil Jose and Bienvenido Lumbera) and one for Art (J. Elizalde Navarro).

The paper imagines itself and its university as rebels of the new world order, “going against the grain, going against the tide.” In upholding the stand of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines condemning the Reproductive Health bill, they have lived up to their Catholic name, the proud children of a pontifical institution—“the second to be so named in world history.”
