One of the most heated matters raised during the last Exec's term was the affiliation of the C.S.O. Mr. Woodfield in particular was violently against affiliating a Society which clearly contravened the Constitution (since amended by the A.G.M.). The Secretary of the C.S.O., Mr. Mummery, who was also a member of the Exec. was equally violently in favour. He threatened to move the disaffiliation of the E.U. and other unconstitutional clubs if Mr. Woodgold succeeded in preventing the affiliation of his society. While "Salient" reporter present sympathised with Mr. Mummery could not see how the Exec. could in good faith condone the completely illegal constitution of the C.S.O. As long as the V.U.C.S.A. Constitution unequivocally slated that all clubs must be open to all members of the Association, and further that all clubs should have at least 20 members, the Exec.'s decision to permit the C.S.O. to operate in violation of these principles seemed somewhat odd.
