Re 1st Issue Salient, 1948
Dear Sir,—I received only last Friday a copy of the above issue and I make haste to take advantage of your offer to contribute to Salient. I do not agree with many of your views set forth in the last issue, nor do I take too kindly to the reprint of the issue of Salient having a crack at me, hence this enclosure. The views are my own and are not claimed to represent the views of anyone else but one who has served on the Executive, on Salient, on Tournament Committees, on Club Committees, in Extrav., and took a large part in the drafting of the present Constitution of the Association. As I am, financially, still a member of the Association I hope the contribution will be accepted.
May I point out two errors in the issue of February 27, viz., in the article "Whither Goes Your Stud. Ass. Fee?" Mrs. Melling's (nee Priest) statement reprinted from the 1946 Salient that a small deduction is made from Stud. Ass. Fees by the College Office is incorrect. This was pointed out to her when she was on the 1945-46 Executive. The other error is very minor, the Exam. Fees case was not heard before the Court of Appeal, but at first instance before the then Chief Justice, Sir Michael Myers.
