THE CAPPING CEREMONY.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l must object to being held up to your readers us requesting the chairman to apologise for my non-attendance at the graduation ceremony. My note in reply to his invitation was of the nature of an explanation, not of an apology, and was to the following effect: — Dear Dr Fitohett,—l have to thank you for your Invitation to tho platform. I regret, however, that being under a vote of censure by tho Otago University Council I cannot accept your kind invitation.—l am, etc., Jajies G. Black. Of course it would not do to exhibit a live censured professor on the platform on so high and august an occasion as the graduation ceremony of the University of New Zealand. —I am, etc., James 6. Black. Dunedin, August 30.
