"Catt question and some of the answers to it." - Igor Wowk, below.
Not quite on the mark. We have more than enough answers; and
What is needed is for those who welcome controversy to be told about the two conflicting answers by two distinguished cohorts led by Pepper FRS (Southerner) and by McEwan, Reader in Electromagnetism (Westerner). It is necessary to tell your members that there exist two conflicting answers to an elementary question. The two cohorts need to be encouraged to resolve their differences. Failing this, students must be told.

Thanks for your note .

Quite honestly it s the end of term and personally I am busy trying to fix up
our undergraduates with student placements and my colleagues are busy marking
exam papers. Once these activities I am sure we will have more time to ponder the Catt question
and some of the answers to it.

I've forwarded your note to the Hon Sec.

Classic excuse I know, but that's the best you'll get out of me right now,.

Best Regards

Last night Lord Montgomery said that he was President(?) of the Cambridge University Engineering Association, and that it welcomed controversy.

I would be very happy to give a very brief resume on "The Catt Question" to the Cambridge University Engineering Association. I would be happy to speak at further length, but really since the matter is heavily represented on the www, I only need to give the key www address to parties in the Engineering Association who are interested in controversy.

I look forward to you reply, and will forward a copy to Lord Montgomery at The Garrick.

I have opened a bank account containing £2,000 which our Editor can access. This is the prize behind the EW challenge."
