Communist Scare In Oxford

SIR.—I cannot help feeling that correspondents such as R. G. Muir make far too much of the fact that Brian Pollitt. son of the late Communist leader, has been elected vice-president of the Union at Cambridge. Officers of Oxford and Cambridge Union Societies are elected for their speaking ability and personality. If Brian Pollitt proved a better candidate than his rivals. then he deserved to be elected. Last summer, Sir Oswald Mosley's son was secretary of the Oxford Union. This did not mean that Oxford was swinging to the Mosley philosophy, but simply that he was a good candidate. in himself.
