Reply to 'Hurrah Jack'

Dear Sirs,

Only two categories of human beings can be excused for being out of touch with reality — the dreamers and the lunatic.

I would appear that your correspondent (ref. 26/9/73 Salient "Hurrah Jack') who prefers to remain anonymous (and understandably so) falls into one of the two categories (his sheer ignorance and illogicality distinctively place him in the latter category).

The content of his letter is a complete departure from the context of my reply to Mr Jack De Silva's unfounded allegations towards Malaysian students in New Zealand. My reply, was effected entirely in my capacity as President of MSSA, on behalf of the Malaysian members represented by the association. I will certainly be guilty of failing my duty as President if I had not deplored the unjustified allegations 'blasted' by Mr De Silva.

David Tan

President — MSSA
