No Verbose Eyewash

No Verbose Eyewash

Sir,—Congratulations on your out-spoken editorial, "The Law and the Exec.," which expresses the feelings of such a large section of the College so well.

We would like, however, to make two comments.

It is flagrantly absurd to think that service and experience weigh most heavily towards success or failure in Exec. elections. Certainly they ought to, but results frequently indicate that they do not.

Enthusiasm and Idealism are important qualities for an Executive, but equally important is efficiency. Not Just verbose legalistic eyewash, but the sort of efficiency that leads to Extravaganzas and freezing of exam, fees and Weir House heard.
