Mackay-Smith Inaccurate

TO THE EDITORS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In a letter to The Crimson (March 12), Virginia Mackay-Smith, Secretary of the Administrative Board, claims that "the College began publishing and distributing annual editions of 'The Ad Board and the Judicial Board: A User's Guide for Students' more than five years ago."

This statement is incorrect. The first edition of the guide was released in April 1993--not even four years ago. Its publication was widely reported in the campus media; an article in the Crimson (April 19, 1993) noted that the "Long-Awaited Guide to The Ad Board is Ready."

Given that the Secretary of the Administrative Board is apparently unable to recount its history properly, it is easy to understand why students--and alumni--do not place great trust in the Board's ability to handle administrative and disciplinary matters adequately. --Jol Silversmith '94
