Resignation of Hon. Secretary. — Don Currie Leaves Executive

Resignation of Hon. Secretary.

Don Currie Leaves Executive

At its meeting on 15th March, the Executive received a letter from Mr. D. R. Currie tendering his resignation from the position of Hon. Secretary. Mr. Currie said that he had been subjected to a considerable amount of personal criticism on the grounds that for many years past the secretary had been a delegate to the N.Z.U.S.A. He considered that a very happy selection had been made in the appointments to these positions, but at the same time he could not have his name bandied about the College with even a suspicion of untrustworthiness. The Executive resolved that a letter be written and signed by the President advising Mr. Currie that the Executive's opinion is that the suggested grounds are quite unfounded and not sufficient to justify his resignation and urging him to reconsider his decision. The President reported that this letter had been written and that he had done his best to urge Mr. Currie to change his mind, but that he was determined to resign. A further letter was received from Mr. Currie stating that he still felt there was a lack of confidence in him .though he withdrew the expression "suspicion of untrustworthiness," and that he could not see any reason to niter his decision. It was, therefore, decided that as Mr. Currie could not alter his decision his resignation be accepted with regret.
