Frazier (1972) criticized the conclusions of Veeder and Zirin (1970) and of Foukal (1971) on the relation of chromospheric morphology to magnetic fields. No sooner was this answered by Foukal and myself (Foukal and Zirin, 1972) when a second, more strident criticism by Frazier (directly preceding in this journal) of a more recent paper by myself (Zirin, 1972) was submitted. Solar physics is not furthered by the invective he has used, and further argument only makes the matter worse; but I feel I have to answer Dr Frazier's points to clarify the status of the Ha: B relations both for him and the solar physics community. Frazier specifically accuses me of (1) hasty generalization; (2) lack of proof; (3) misquotation, and ( 4) confusion of terms. I plead 'not guilty' to all four.
