His selection, subject to medical examination, was approved by the special comndttee wblsli includes Dr. Vivian Fuchs, Leader of the Expedition. â&#x20AC;˘'Steve* graduated at the University of Queensland, where he tool: honours i n Geology. This course of study led 1dm to a. l i f e of open ai r adventure, sometimes i n l i t t l e known bush country of Qusensland. Ha beoame President of the University of xhieensland Bush Walking Club, a select society whose activities included anything fran "knocking off" v i r gin peaks to quiet rambles throupfr the bush - a society that has produced more than one Antarctic explorer. He was awarded an 1 8 5 1 Exhibition Soienoe Research Scholarship and cams to I.C. i n October 1954. He immediately 'BSde !iis presence felt i n the Mountaineering Club, where he now iiolds the office of Vioe-Eresidant. I t was mainly due to liis hard work and efficient organising that a party from I.C.M.C. visited the Alps this Sumner. Steve spent five weeks climbing i n the Alps where he gained much useful experience and mode 3oma fine guideless climbs. Steve joined the Boat Club and rowed in the RiC.S.Lowry crew and won both the I.C. Novioes and Junior Soul Ting Championships. He i s President of the Overseas Students Club, and also 3it3 on the Library Committee. He helped in the formation of the I.C.Explaration Board and i s keen for a successful outcome of this venture. The story of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition i s quiokly becoming household conversation. Muoh has already been written by the TIMES who hold the World. Copyright. The BBC have oovered the plans of the Expedition i n a series of programmes. Steve w i l l be sailing out to Antarctica next November with the main party. There they w i l l be based i n Vahsel Bay an the Woddell Sea far twelve months training and soientlfio observation. Much of this work w i l l be carried out at sUb-zero temperatures. The start far the Pole w i l l be i n November 1957, and Steve has high hopes of being a member of the small group that hopes to make the 2000 mile crossing acros3 the icy wastes to meet Hillary's party whioh w i l l set out iYom Mcttavlo Sound on the opposite side of the Continent.

A delightful l i t t l e booklet, whioh no I,C. student should be without, has just been published. It's t i t l e ? "The Future of Imperial College" - by R.P. Linstead. The booklet i s a reprijrt of the Rector's inaugural Address, held a short while ago in the Royal Geographical Society's Lecture Theatre, and i t is printed legibly upon white paper. One w i l l notice that there are a few bl:.nk pages towards the end : these are for any possible notes or memoranda whioh the reader may care to make. The author shows great farsight throughout the booklet, and i n one oase he thinks i t probable that the newly-formed Exploration Board w i l l take part i n a scientific expedition to the Himalayas. We hope that a l l students w i l l read this interesting l i t t l e pamphlet, because i t concerns their future, and the future of their grandchildren. We also trust that the "Times Educational Supplement" w i l l 3ee f i t to review the true facts of the expansion of Imperial College, with all i t s implications.

There are only two s o l u t i o n s t o the problem of overcrowding, apart from r a i s i n g the p r i c e o f admission which of course, the Union would r i g h t l y f o r b i d having o n l y l a s t year f i x e d the present maximum charges. The f i r s t of these s o l u t i o n i s to s t i l l f u r t e r reduce the number of t i c k e t s a v a i l a b l e , t h i s number being f a r too s m a l l even now. One must s t r o n g l y disapprove such a d r a s t i c s t e p . Moreover, the a l l imnortant t a k i n g s would d e c l i n e as a r e s u l t . In view of these u n s a t i s f a c t o r y a l t e r n a t i v e s the Union must d i r e c t i t s energies i n the d i r e c t i o n of o b t a i n i n g a l a r g e r h a l l o r h a l l s i n which t o hold its functions.

Many wind and p e r c u s s i o n instruments are unused f o r c o n s i d e r a b l e p e r i o d s ; t h e i r work should be spread more evenly over the c o n c e r t , thus elimino a t i n g peaks of a c t i v i t y .

Furthermore, there i s no need f o r an i n t e r val as l i g h t refreshment might w e l l be obtained during the periods set aside f o r applause. ( c ) of o p e r a t o r s : Only the p i a n i s t makes f u l l use o f both hands and f e e t . Many operat* ors not o n l y have both f e e t i d l e , but are u s i n g one hand to h o l d t h e i r instrument.

In the second h a l f , however, a p e r s i s t e n t onslaught on the U.C. l i n e was maint a i n e d and tn'y the e x c e l l e n t s p o i l i n g of the o n p o s i t i o n wingforwards prevented the s c o r i n g o f tries. A f t e r an attempted dropped g o a l by Holman that s t r u c k the c r o s s b a r and a d i v e over the U.C. l i n e i n the c o r n e r by Reynolds who was h e l d by the r e f e r e e to be i n touch the match was c l i n c h e d by a p e n a l t y g o a l k i c k e d by Hearn, The great r e s e r v e s t r e n g t h of T.C. compared w i t h other c o l l e g e s was emphasised by the 2nd.

The 1 s t , XV match was noteworthy f o r the b e t t e r t a c k l i n g of the I.C. backs. On the few occasions on which the b a l l was allowed down on * l i n e t h e r e appeared, however, a lack of t h r u s t and s c o r i n g chances i n the f i r s t h a l f were few. The forwards procured more of the b a l l i n the second h a l f and the p r e v i o u s l y scrappy l i n e mt p l a y was t i g h t e n e d up t o some degree. Same unfortunate attempts at goal from p e n a l t i e s and a narrowiy missed dropped k i c k a* g o a l were f o l l o w e d by a t r y from Whitmore who scrambled home a f t e r g a t h e r i n g a bouncing b a l l from a hig h f r e e k i c k .

The f u l l repercussions of the l i v e l y evening i n the bar afterwards are not y e t known, but perhaps f o r the f i r s t time the C o l l e g e outnumbered the "Welsh" whose s i n g i n g , s p i r i t e d though i t was did not come up to t h e i r usual high standard.

In what was undoubtably our best match of the season to date, the Croes Country Club h e a v i l y defeat ed S h e f f i e l d U n i v e r s i t y and L e i c e s t e r U n i v e r s i t y College at S h e f f i e l d l a s t Saturday. The f i v e - m i l e course o'er h i l l and dale (mainly h i l l ) was the same as l a s t y e a r , when S h e f f i e l d beat us. The pace was very f a s t throughout, some of us knocking two minutes o f f l a s t year's time. There i s no doubt that we would have scored an even more resounding v i c t o r y , were i t not f o r the team's ave r s i o n t o farmyard animals w i t h horns, which caused a number of detours. However, no-one was i m p a l ed, although Dearden l o s t h i s s h o r t s t e m p o r a r i l y on a barbed-wire fence, and we f i n i s h e d w i t h our s i x s c o r i n g men i n the f i r s t e i g h t home.

Since the last report i n Felix, the fortunes of the Club have been varied. The 1st. XI lost narrowly to Hendon, and to St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, in the return f i x ture. However, a resounding 9-1 victory was recorded against iheArr\y(London District). F.CM.Sillett and Hashim Khan have now Joined the side and should do much to inarease our chanoes in the seoond round of the U.L. Cup, against U.C. next Wednesday. J.I—Tayler continues to be the leading goal-scorer. The second and third elevens have not yet played according to expectations. I t has been suggested that some players might benefit from a rigorous early morning training programme. With the cooperation of I.C.W.S.C. the mixed XI i s both popular and successful, having so far won two matches and lost one.

On Thursday, Nov. 17th. the College,renresenteri by :orbett, Baker , McKenzie, Moorhouse, Shepherd, Halsey and the c a p t a i n , Palmer, competed i n the U n i v e r s i t y t r i a l s . The competitio n was organised a c c o r d i n g to A.B.A. weight groups. The f i n a l resu l t was:I.C. 22 p o i n t s ; Kings 11; and London Hospi t a l 8. Palmer won the featherweight d i v i s i o n on a walk-over. In the l i g h t - w e l t e r w e i g h t s , Shepherd, boxing a g a i n s t Wood of Westminster C o l l e g e , an orthodox boxer w i t h a good l e f t hand, managed, by h i s t e n a c i t y and s u p e r i o r punching-to f l o o r h i s opponent t w i c e before the contest was c a l l e r ! to a h a l t w i t h Wood on the f l o o r i n the second round, G. Walsey meeting Hayes of King's, who had previous'y d i s p l a y e d h i s tough c a p a b i l i t i e s by b e a t i n g K e l l y (London H o s p i t a l ) i n an e l i m i n a t i o n bout e a r l i e r on, t r i e d very h a r d . ( p r o v i n g such tough o p p o s i t i o n indeed, t h a t Hayes who eventually won on p o i n t s decided t o withdraw from the compet i t i o n and so made Shepherd the winner) and showed c o n s i d e r a b l e t a l e n t w i t h a long s t r a i g h t l e f t whioh scored many times but through attempting to use a r i g h t hand at the wrong time l e f t h i m s e l f wide open t o Hayes very accurate l e f t s . Welterweight- H. McKenzie i n a very weak state through weight t r o u b l e put up a good showing against W h i t f i e l d of St. Georges (a previous London Team Boxer) but was too slow and was u s u a l l y beaten to the punch by h i s very c o o l opponent who won on points. W h i t f i e l d went on t e n minutes l a t e r to beat a very plucky Imperial man, Moorehouse, who c a r r i e d the f i g h t to h i s man f o r much of the bout although t a k i n g c o n s i d e r a b l e punishment. In the s e m i - f i n a l at the l i g h t heavyweight d i v i s i o n two Imperial men, Corbett and Baker, passed through three rounds of very orthodox boxing i n which Baker through a s t r o n g e r l e f t hand and s a f e r defence won on p o i n t s .
