FORMER STUDENT AWARDED PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL PRIZE A former civil engineering graduate, Mr K K Framji, has recently been awarded the Olympia Prize for 1985 for his important contribution in world-wir.~ efforts for the protection of the environment; in particular for his work in promoting changes in the concepts of water resources planning. Mr Framji, who graduated from King's in 1930, is now a water resources engineer of international repute and Secretary General of the I nternational Commission on I rrigation and Drainage. As such, he has been instrumental in encouraging developing countries to improve the management of their water resources, adopt anti-pollution and anti-erosion measures and thus become less dependant on imported foodstuffs. The Olympia Prize is awarded by the Alexander S Onassis Public Benefit Foundation, Greece to 'people or institutions who have made a notable contribution to the preservation of nature or the safeguarding of our cultural inheritance or scientific progress connected herewith'. Former laureates of the prize have included Sir Harold Macmillan, Prince Salruddin Aga Khan and Or Dillon Ripley, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution.

AMERICANS HONOUR SECRETARY The College Secretary, Myles Tempany, is to receive one of the highest awards made by the University of Texas. Congratulations go to him on the receipt of the President's Award of the University of Texas, Houston Health Center.
Loughborough's Academic Staff Training and Development Committee Newsletter for Spring '85 IS available. Particularly interesting is an article, reprinted from 'Management Review', by barrister Charles Christian on the legal convolutions of computer software use: 'Buying the software is where problems begin? Dickens' descriptions of wardship and chancery law in 'Bleak House' were complicated and depressing enough. But, as Christian gleefu Ily observes, 'the policy of Software Houses is to come down on (patent infringements) heavily, hitting them with everything the law has to offer... lf you think programmers are paid too much money, just wait until your lawyers start submitting their bills.'
Professor L P Harvey, Emeritus Professor of Spanish, has been nominated to the Council of Honour of the newly-formed Institute of Spain and the Arab World. Professor A R Mellows, Head of Laws, has been appointed a Commander of the Order of St John. Professor P J Black, Director of the Centre for Science and Mathematics Education, has been elected President of the Association for Science Education for the year 1986.

This year's venue will be the Chelsea Physic Garden. Because Chelsea is full of interesting and historic places, visits are usually made in thiS locality - also members are able to return to Chelsea College to round off the evening with a glass of wine and light refreshments. When the Executive Committee met on 30th April last it was suggested that, in view of the forthcoming merger, memo bers of staff at Queen Elizabeth and King's College might be interested in joining this event. Therefore an invitation is extended to all members of staff at Queen Elizabeth and King's College to come along and meet members of the Chelsea College Society at the Annual General Meeting which is held during the month of November and find out more about the Society: a most cordial welcome will be awaiting their presence. The actual date of the Annual General Meeting will be announced later in the year. In the meantime, should anyone wish to have further details of the Society, please contact either Mrs M.

ACCOMMODATION NEEDED FOR SAGA HOLIDAYMAKERS The Academic and Study Holidays division of SAGA Holidays have contacted the College to ask if anyone could help with information on suitable places for accommodation in Europe. They are currently expanding their operations on to the Continent but are having difficulty in locating suitable accommodation. If anyone has been involved in exchanges or sabbaticals at European universities and knows of accommodation there, they would be delighted to hear from them. They would also consider schools, conference centres, religious establishments - anything which possesses a quantity of single or twin bedded rooms of a good but simple standard. They are particularly interested in Spain, Portugual and Greece, although any suggestions in any part of Europe will be gratefuUy received. If anyone is able to help with this request, please contact Professor Norma Rinsler, Department of French in the first instance.
CHARlTON HESTON INTERVIEWED A student of English In his or any other college has a keen 'nteres 'n all hings theatrical; more rare are opportunities to discuss the craf of ac ing with one of its leading exponents. As a second-year, I was fortunate enough to have such an opportunity when, accompanied by N'c Hatto, a second year pharmacology student and acting sound technician for the occasion, I visited Charlton Heston at his Mayfair residence at the beginning of June. Mr Heston is currently starring in and directing a powerful revival of Herman Wouk's 'The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial' at the Queen's Theatre, and I was determined to discover how far he would resemble the Charlton Heston projected through his Journals (1956-76), published as 'The Actor's Life' and highly recommended to anyone interested in the world's second oldest profession. He proved to be a man of great presence, charm and intellect; the reality behind the public image did not disappoiflt. S.S.
Do you think that affected your childhood?
C.H. Enormously. I went to a one-room school; 13 pupils in eight grades, three of whom were my cousins. That precluded any possibility of organised sports, even had the school been able to afford them; so my only physical activities as a kid were hunting, fishing and so on, which left me very ill-equipped for the far more sophisticated high school I attended when we moved back to an affluent suburb of Chicago. S.S.
You were born in 1924 and raised in St Helen, Michigan, during the Great Depression. How did your parents make a living?
C.H. My father was a land-developer and timber dealer; St Helen was very much a backwoods community, near the Canadian border, and I was raised in a hunting, fishing environment. S.S.
the reasons many actors become actors is that they are basically shy people who find in acting other people to be, and I have an idea that that's what drew me to acting.
Were you a lonely child?
C.H. Yes, but my boyhood in the woods I remember idyllically. As an adolescent I was quite alienated, very shy, un-equipped socially for the school I found myself in. I made the rifle team, but of course that doesn't make you an overwhelming success in high school; and the drama department: I think one of
From high school you won a scholarship to Northwestern University and appeared in 7 productions in your first year. Were these leading roles?
C. H. In several of them. I played the lead in a comedy called 'A Slight Case of Murder'. S.S.
You've done very little comedy throughout you r career. Do you feel it's something to which you're not suited?
C.H. Obviously, superficially I'm not physically equipped for comedy roles, being basically a leading man type - but look at Cary Grant! I think it's partly a function of the roles you begin to play; they are to a certain extent self-generating. In my case they have been leading roles, initially in Shakespeare, certainly period plays and obviously the more of those I did the more logical my casting in those roles was, As an actor becomes known he is followed by the lengthening shadow of the roles he has played. A parallel case of just the reverse is an almost exact contemporary of mine, Paul Newman, who has become the prototypical 20th century urban American man, and for Paul to put on doublet and hose and play Lorenzo the Magnificent would be an exercise in futility. Then there's Woody Alien, who could never play Macbeth!
After serving in the Aleutians for the final 18 months of the War, you returned home and eventually gained a small part on Broadway: in 'Anthony and Cleopatra' with Katherine Cornel!. Was this a formative experience for you as an actor?
C.H. Absolutely. The company's standards were very high and they demonstrated how an actor is supposed to behave. Then in my early career I worked for directors such as De Mille and in support of actors like Jimmy Stewart and Gary Cooper; they served as role models. S.S.
For De Mille you made 'The Greatest Show on Earth' and played John the Baptist in 'The Ten Commandments'. You must have very vivid memories of this period?
C.H. Indeed, the Baptist was a milestone in my career, as it would have been for anyone. And the birth of my son at this time was of overwhelming importance. It was also of importance to De Mille - he played the infant Moses! S.S.
In 1958 you took on the role for which you are still best remembered - Judah Ben Hur. During rehearsals, director William Wyler pulled no punches when he was dissatisfied with what he saw as your failure to fulfil your potential in the role. Perfection demanded 16 takes to say, 'I'm a Jew!'. Was it harder learning to drive a chariot or learning to be Ben Hur?
C.H. Oh, Willy Wyler was much more difficult to satisfy as director than
J was Yak Canutt teaching me to drive a chariot. I really had no dou~t I could learn to perform minimally as a charioteer; performing as Ben Hur or indeed as anything. up to Wyler's standards, was an open question. He quite properIy was an extremely demanding director. S.S.
A Japanese journalist said that 'you represent the Confucian values: responsibility, justice, courage and moderation'. Do you agree with that?
C.H. I'm delighted he thinks so! Of course, he's referring in part to the Charlton Heston projected on the screen, in parts like the Cid or Moses. S.S.
But certainly the man projected in your published Journals (1956-76) also seems to represent those values.
C.H. Well, I certainly endorse them, and try to fulfil them. I think moderation and acceptance of the consequences of your own actions is encumbent on any man. S.S.
In 1960 you worked on Broadway with Olivier in 'The Tumbler'. You were struck by his remark that 'Star acting is really a question of hypnosis; of yourself and the auciience'. As a star actor yourself, how much truth have you found in that comment?
C.H. You cannot undertake 'star acting' as a goal. It has a lot to do with natural chemistry, which is a trendy, hard-to-define phrase. It may have been Max Beerbohm who said, 'I n the beginning we are taken with an actor's loo s; and then his voice impresses us. Then later on in his career we become preoccupied with his characterisation; but finally we surrender to what he is.' That may have been what Olivier was saying. S.S. Then came 'El Cid'. At the time, you wrote: 'I may be started down the road to whoredom'; yet your research and preparation were as meticulous as ever. Is it sometimes enough to be happy with your own performance in a less-than-perfect film?
was not a good film, but I was content with my performance as Antony - which doesn't say I was satisfied! S.S.
In 1967 'Planet of the Apes' appeared - was your career by now at a transitional stage, the epic spectaculars of the '50's and '60's on the way to being replaced by sci-fi and disaster movies?
C.H. Yes. I adapted by being in some of all of them. It's generally recognised that of the 'Space Operas' the first was 'Planet of the Apes', which Frank Schaffner and I made. The only problem was persuading the studios to make a film about rocket ships and talking monkeys. I don't know what they would have thought of Darth Vadar! S.S.
So do you think in a way you started the sci-fi boom?
C.H. Oh, I do. It was the first film in the genre. S.S. Today the film world seems divided between quality films which don't make money and those overstuffed with star names which do. As a star, used to drawing large audiences, can you maintain the integrity as an actor which originally gave you mass-appeal? C.H. Well, I don't plan to do any triple X porno films! Acting is piecework; you go from part to part. You look for a part among those offered you that offers an acting challenge and has a reasonable chance of pleasing an audience. To quote Ben Jonson's phrase: 'We who live to please must please to live'! Fewer films are made, because the cost of making them is constantly increasing; so is the cost of going to them. Theatrical films are not as easy to mount or sell because of the competition from video. The problem with film is twofold. Gar Kanin had part of it right: he said 'The trouble with film as a business is that it's an art, and the trouble with film as an art is that it's a businEss'. S.S.
You're here in London portraying the inner turmoil of Lt. Cmdr. Queeg in 'The Caine Mutiny CourtMartial', which you're also directing. Why did you revive this play for your West End debut?
C.H. It would be if I ever were happy with my own performance! All films are considerably less than per- C.H. It was imperative to bring an Amerfect, as are all performances. Acting iean play to London; I don't want is by definition, imperfectible. The to bring another bucket of coal to second time I did 'Julius Caesar' it Newcastle when there are plenty
of good English actors to play English roles. I had wanted to alternate the roles of Queeg and Greenwald - parts I hadn't played before - something which is never done now, although this practise used to be very common up until the '30's. Then when Ben Cross became the clear choice for Greenwald I said, fine, I'll play Queeg and direct and it's worked out very well. S.S.
Finally: in 1978 you spoke of the opportunities your career has . afforded you. If you had just one last professional opportunity, what would you like it to be?
C.H. I would like to do Macbeth one more time, and finally get it right, or Antony in 'Antony and Cleopatra', both of which I hope to do. Perhaps Lear, or Othello... I don't think anyone ever says, I want to 'do' Hamlet or Lear, you just feel you've got to do it, this is the time. It's frightening; if the circumstances came up and someone said, 'Lear', my reaction would be 'You sonofabitch!', but I'd do it... Stephen Spencer Department of English
KING'S TO FORM LINKS WITH CHINESE UNIVERSITY King's College and Tianjin University in China have recently signed an agreement on education and scientific cooperation. The two institutions hope to explore ways in which interchanges and visits of staff and students may be developed. As China opens its doors more to the West, many of its Universities have been forming such links with universities in North America and Europe. Tianjin lies about 80 miles south-east of Beijing. The University was founded in 1985 and was the first to be established in modern China. It is one of the largest universities of science and technology, with a campus of over 360 acres and a population of around 14,000. There are approximately 8500 students and 1700 academic staff. It has 17 Science and Technology departments, departments of Humanities, Social Sciences and foreign languages and 4 Research Institutes.
The blast, which occurred at 5.30 in the evening, happened in Lab. 209 on the top floor. Fortunately, no-one was hurt, a though hree rooms were damaged.
