IN FAVOUR . . .
I feel I must comment on Mr. Rigley’s criticism of your editorial concerning the action of the schoolmasters of Great Britain.
I emphatically disagree with the statement that ” Attention to matters far removed from the real aspect of the magazine can only lead to inaccuracies in reporting on relevant matters.” We are not watertight compartments with labels such as “
Editor,”” Dentist,” ” Musician,” ” Racing Driver,” ” School Teacher.” We are human beings with the ability to think and express opinion.
I feel MOSE strongly that the life-blood of this magazine is the personal approach of the people who produce it.
In diversity lies interest and excitement, as you obviously realise. Upset me as much as you like, I will still buy MOTOR SPORT, but the day you deal purely with cars to the exclusion of all else my interest will wane.
Putney. ALAN J. HARPLEY. [Thank you for your support, Mr. Harpley. In fact, to reply to the many incensed teachers who wrote to us, we did not criticise their proposed strike as such, merely remarked on what a had influence it would have on the youngsters they teach. One teacher asks if we haven’t noticed the huge classes our children work in. The answer is that if you pay for free schooling in taxation and then pay again for private ‘schooling, as the writer does, you don’t have to worry about over-large classes! And from the teacher’s argument it still adds up to smaller classes, less strain, less effort, for the same or more money. Something to ponder on during the long vacations.—En.) • •
