Retraction and Apology

In the issue of "Salient" dated 30 May and 15 June 1973 certain references were made to Mr R. J. D. Buddie a barrister and solicitor practising in Lower Mutt. "Salient" is published by the Victoria University of Wellington Students Association (Inc.), edited by Mr Roger Steele, and printed by Wanganui Newspapers Ltd. These parties now realise that the references made might have been read as suggesting that Mr Buddie's integrity, honesty, and professional competence were being called in question. No such suggestion was ever intended by any of the defendants and in any event would of course have been totally unfounded. The publishers, editor and printers of "Salient" sincerely regret any distress or embarrassment that these references may have caused to Mr Buddie; they arc happy unreservedly to retract any references which may be interpreted as impugning his integrity, honesty and professional competence; and they apologise to him for any embarrassment and distress which may have been caused to him.
