Our Debators

Our Debators

Dear Sir,—

I am instructed by my committee to draw your attention to an error in the current issue of Salient. On page 11 you have stated that the motion, "That the Present Foreign Policy of the U.S.S.R. is a Menace to World Peace" was lost. It was, in effect, carried.

Since this was printed in heavy black type the committee would like to see a correction in the next issue of Salient in similar type.

Nell Casey.

Hon. Sec. V.U.C. Debating Society.

(We are sorry that only a halftruth appeared in the article. The whole truth will be apparent if we quote the last paragraph of the report of the debate—Salient, 3rd April, 1946:—

"After the two leaders had summed up without adding anything to the discussion, the motion was put and carried by six votes on a count of members of the association. When put to the whole house, however, it was lost by a similar narrow margin. There were about sixteen visitors present."—Ed.)
