Students and Martial Law


THE Committee which has been sitting for the last few days under the chairmanship of Mr. Maynard to enquire into the cases of students punished under Martial L aw has made some important recommendations. We trust that before its sittings have concluded it will have done all that is necessary to bring to a satisfactory end what is undeniably a most painful chapter in our educational history. The feeling of bitterness evoked by the punishments inflicted upon so many students, punishments both indiscriminate and disproportionate, has found repeated expression both in these columns and elsewhere.
