WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
TO THE EDITOR. Sir—l see in Saturday's Guabdian a report of the meeting of the Ashburton High School Board, and it >was shown at the meeting that a deficiency was traceable to the late secretary. As soon as I read this I came to the conclusion at once that the members of the Board should make good this money out of their own pockets or elae resign their position on the Board as it is not right that this deficiency should be made good out of the public funds. The reason why I come to this conclusion is that all the members of the Board at that time knew the man, and that he had been prosecuted for fraudulent bankruptcy and convicted at the Court, and he and his fellow conspirator both got out on probation. And I may also say that the then Chairman of the Board got a letter to say that the then secretary was not a proper man for the position he (then held. —I am, etc., Watch Dog.
