I'm interested in finding an online copy of J. Hammersley's article entitled On the enfeeblement of mathematical skills by Modern Mathematics and by similiar soft intellectual trash in schools and universities, which was published in the Bulletin of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, Band 4, 1968, S. 66–85.

I've searched both the name of the article, truncated version with hammersley, and even tried to find a repository for the "Bulletin of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications", yet unfortunately, all have failed.

Anyone know where to find this?
