Have you written A. Woodhouse about eligibles? We are very scant here at Vic.
June 6, 1946
It is always a pleasure to hear from you whether casually or officially.
I am afraid I cannot give Hicklin the same enthusiasm as I put behind Wood and Wilson. His record was quite slip-shod at Victoria. He has indeed some ability but it has been shown more on the amateur operatic stage as a ballet dancer than in the classroom. I think he might pinch-hit for a year all right to freshmen but I should make it clear to him that the appointment is temporary. That would give you a chance to test him out but go warily, Des. Demand his undergraduate credits first and examine them.
Confidental, of course.
