Home Office throws out appeal O N L Y T H E ISSUE of a " Limited Appeal Licence " can save the 1966 IC Carnival Procession. This the organisers applied for on Monday at the suggestion of the British Red Cross Society following the Home Office rejection of their appeal against the refusal by local police forces to authorise street collections on Saturday, 14 May. Carnival Chairman Chris Hocking contacted the Kensington branch of the Red Cross on Thursday to seek an alteration of the date of their collection—10 May. However, the Red Cross appeal is being launched over the whole South-East of England, and was so impossible to move. A n alternative request to hold the Procession on the first Saturday of Carnival Week—7 May—was turned down by the Chelsea police as another collection was scheduled for the Tuesday of that week.

The last word on posters SIR, I have just read Mr. Baramkis letter in FELIX for 9 March.. obvious Not having Mr. Baramki's familiarity with army barracks or the rooms of sex maniacs, I am in no judgment position to pass such strong on your poster as he is. However, as the one who has for some time had unenviable job of attempting to get people to read posters, may I suggest that before condemning the various officers in IC he should atpublicity tempt to find an easier solution than banning sex. In a College with so much internal advertising—much of it of a very high one's standard—it is difficult to get posters read unless they are eyecatching and stand out from the mass. Having accepted this one simple fact—obvious to those of even limited must find'an eye-catchintellect—we ing poster. Regrettable though it gimmick may be, one very effective male society in an almost completely is a pretty girl ; this 'has been proved to work over and over again. If Mr. Baramki would like to contact me I would be pleased to hear his suggestions for improved publicity. It is perhaps best to conclude by poster has had asking which College most effect on Mr. Baramki. Could I suggest that this is a measure of i s effectiveness as publicity, defined—Hot by me—as the art of keeping the name of the product in the eye of possible. the public as much as Could it be the FELIX poster in about it question, my only complaint of reproduction. is the poor standard PHILIP L.

SECONDS SLIP BACK U C II 2—I.C. II 0 In a hard fought game at Motspur Park, both defences played very weD and it was not until the last minute of the first half that either team had a clear cut shot a', goal. The I.C. forwards never managed to penetrate the U . C . defence or to even pin them down in their own half for any length of time. But U . C . were having a similar problem in beating an L C . defence in which Burnett was particularly prominent during the early part of the game. D a v i e s caused U . C . some trouble w i t h a l o n g r u n d o w n the left w i n g , but after h a l f a n hour's p l a y , a h a r d cross f r o m the U .

Touchstone Weekend on 'Race*

Education Needed by

Martin

Bell.

M R . A . H . C H R I S T I E , M . A . , Hon. Sec. of the Royal Anthropological Institute, was the speaker at the last Touchstone weekend on " R a c e . " N o ardent " p u r e racists! " were present, and so the weekend was mainly spent discussing what forms race prejudice took and how it could be prevented. He dealt first with the myth of race from biological facts ; there is no biological validity for doubting that man is all of one single species, Homo sapiens. The human race has not had time to develop significant mutations, but isolated groups had. adapted themselves to circumstances and had responded to ecological pressures. For instance, the genes of Jewish groups throughout the world were found to have no common factors and the genes approximated to the groups in which the Jews were situated, in spite of their endogamous, isolated situation. Thus the notion of pure " race " was nonsense. 1
