Sir,—I object to the statement put to my credit that "haggling over money is an unpleasant way of dealing with student affairs." What I said, or intended to say, was that it would appear from all the haggling that went on about the sums that are (or were) paid to these bodies (i.e. W.F.D.Y. and I.U.S.) that we did not consider whether we gained anything from membership but "How much does it cost?." and the fact that W.F.D.Y. has been budgeted for, and that we were no longer affiliated, did not run us into debt by allowing £50 to three I.U.S. observers.
I feel that in a lot of cases, one of the functions of the Exec, is to haggle over the expenditure of the Association's money and to say that it is an unpleasant way of dealing with student affairs is somewhat erroneous in that it may be unpleasant but is necessary.
