Oliver, History Department, Victoria University College, Willington, Payment will be made for accepted contributions.

There has been widespread confusion over the authorship of the short story In The Tunnel, by P. J. Wilson, and the group of poems by Pat Wilson, in the last issue. These two authors are different people.

The September Hilltop will include Professor I. A. Gordon's article on T. L. Peacock, held over from this issue, also a study of The Bacchae of Euripides, by Professor H. A. Murray. Poems and short stories as usual.

All enquiries about advertising space in this paper should be made to Mr. G. S. Orr, C/o J. J. & Denis McGrath, 10 Woodward Street, Wellington, (Tel. 41-588).
