Dr Taylor's article

Dr Taylor's article

Sir,

I should like to thank you for publishing extracts from Professor Taylor's report to University Council on student counselling (Salient, 18 Feb. 1970). Students must have found it particularly interesting to be able to read the opinions of someone who (at least, until recently) was an appointed adviser to them.

As a member of staff, I found particularly interesting Professor Taylor's recommendation that (presumably, when engaging staff), "more attention must be given to the personal qualities of stability, enthusiasm, loyalty, and responsibility of academics as well as to the qualities of their degrees". I presume that this is an amplification of Professor Taylor's earlier homage to academic freedom.
