Announced results all positive at end of SSS AGM.

Comments on financial results:

It was pointed out that if we were to have no adventurous expenditure we might as well dissolve the Society. There was some support for this suggestion and if it could have been proposed, it would surely have been seconded.

Our Education Secretary abstained from voting on all adventurous expenditure, including the Conference budget!

Our previous Publication Secretary voted against the budget for the journal!

One member forgot his voting paper and refused the offer of using a blank sheet with numbers for each head (on condition that he signed to say he had not voted before).

Mr. Cropper announced that he was voting against everything, he did.

The subscription resolution comes under another heading.
