Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 21, No. 6. May 28, 1958

[Letter from H. G. Miller to Salient Vol. 21, No. 6. May 28, 1958]

The Editor,

Sir,—My attention has been drawn to a statement in the "Salient" of May 6th, in which I am reported to have said: "Unfortunately Miss Millar, the last appointment, left before she had come, to know the Library well enough to be qualified to give any advice to students." This would be a serious thing to say about anybody and especially about anyone as intelligent and resourceful as Miss Nola Millar. I did not say it.

Miss Millar started from scratch and did a good job and, as I said in my Annual Report for 1957, the Library owes her much. She certainly was not with us long enough to develop the kind of reference service that we hope for—and this I may well have said—but she did well and we are grateful.

H. G. Miller.

(Two "Salient" reporters were at the meeting and both were convinced that Mr. Millar actually said what is quoted above. "Salient", however, accepts the denial embodied in Mr. Miller's letter.—Ed.)
