AS one who has had a fair number of letters on this page this year, I would like to give the following advice to others: Devote your letter to one subject only. Never write as if your readers have last week's issue before them. Always write as if everyone is prepared to be reasonable. Always argue with a man on his assumption, not yours. Cut out all personal remarks — abuse will get you nowhere. Provided your handwriting is clear, typing i ry. After all, you not necessaou are helping the Editor to fill a whole page without cost, so 'it is only fair he should allow you to write at your ease. Never take offence if your letter does not appear. Write on one side of the paper only: generous spacing between lines. Keep to these rules and you will be doing all you can to get your letter a good hearing. Finally a prayer to your favourite saint.
