Terry Speed sounds the alarm

Two weeks ago, the Victorian Branch of the Statistical Society of Australia celebrated its 50th anniversary. Many people turned out for the event, including a few members who were there right from the beginning. You can read a short historical account of the Branch in this short review from Ian Gordon and myself.
