Letter: Memories of college days.Byline: RAY WOODALL
Sir, - I was a student at Saltley Teachers' Training College, (St Peter's) from 1948 to 1950. During my final year the college celebrated its centenary and looked set to carry on its noble tradition for years to come.
However, not many years later it closed down and I wonder what has become of it? And why was it closed?
Could I also take this opportunity of enquiring after any of the old fellow students?
'Old' is the operative OPERATIVE. A workman; one employed to perform labor for another.
2. This word is used in the bankrupt law of 19th August, 1841, s. 5, which directs that any person who shall have performed any labor as an operative in the service of any bankrupt shall be word - we are all now in our mid-70s. I would appreciate any of them getting in touch.
