LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Sir, : ' 'v: -? It see.as sir, somewhat surprising to see a shocked psycho student (spray a-ain?) . Yet our friend Miss Disgusted is all' of that and more. She is $ o n her own admission* 'bo th pur if i ed (admi t tedly only by the powers of French) and thoroughly unable to express her views sufficiently strongly. Perhaps this explains the underlined words of her letter published 19th July 9 19 I notice, with silent admira tion , her grasp, at this s ta^e 9 of the principles of psychology ? Her ref erence to instincts 9 however feminine , is a work of art , and her reference to childhood 9 a stroke of Freudian genius. However, her admirable jrasp of psych, is only equalled by the paucity of her general knowledge. It is on this point that her training has been sadly nejlected? and it is this that sent her psycho mind reeling at the sijht of the' College lawn covered (yes, literally.') with all sorts of interesting what chamacalli ts .

Should they have them? The full story of the. bomb ha~ not been - told yet, and particularly we feel the S.P.C. side..- The main arju- f ment' which they have'- to face is not the spending of so much money - \ they spent much more on a typewriter earlier in the' year, at the ; instigation pf the -last Annual Meeting and the Editors could speak J very feelingly in favour of that. The maari' argument is that there is.no/fc.use enough for a utility to warrant it.. -And...
