"We should be linked up by the end of the week," said M r . Marovac of the Elec E n g department here at IC. H e went on to say that the link with A R P A should mean advantages for both sides as computer night time can be used by the other hemisphere. It is hoped to form further links with other European countries later on, and to increase the number of terminals in Britain to 24. H e said that there was not much likelihood of a terminal for general use but consideration will be given to projects especially if they involve languages or programmes not available in this country. The project, j o i nt ly sponsored b y the Institute of C o m p u t e r Sciences, the National Physical Laboratory a n d the Post Office, is being l e d b y Professor Peter K i r s t e i n of the I n -

LETTERS

Imperial College Publications All ICU publications are under the aegis and sanction of the Publications Board. They fall objectively into two categories: regular and irregular. Felix and the R C S Broadsheet appear weekly and fortnightly respectively. The former needs no further mention as you're reading it now. The R C S Broadsheet is p r o d u c e d in the R C S U office (opposite the Southside refectory entrance) and c o s t s a penny. It has been the subject of many threatened libel suits but through a liberal d o s a g e of Tartan to the suitors remains as yet unlitigated. This year it is in the hands of editor Digby L. J am es . It is rumoured that another edition of Pentsheet, the infamous cornucopia of naughty bits that appeared last term, will not be attempted this year as the entire stock was stolen before it could be sold last time. The irregular publications are Guildsheet ( o n c e / t w i c e a term) and Minesletter (defunct). The former is filled with ribald stories, articles and poem s and o c c a s i o n a l political comment (see the M o s c o w Trials issue) as well of course as flowing tributes lauding the s u c c e s s e s of G u i l d s sportsteams. Only those geriatric few doing research or deferred honours can remember the last a p p e a r a n c e of Minesletter but rumour has it that it was even more blue in content and politics than Guildsheet. There is one other student publication at IC : C E F E . P r o d u c e d weekly by S o c s o c it contains political commentary and analysis from the various

GOODBYE FROM LINM Dear All, I would just like to thank everyone who contributed to my L e a v i n g / W e d d i n g present last session. At the Union C o u n c i l Dinner and D a n c e I w a s presented with a c h e q u e and an i n s c r i b e d pewter tankard. No better present could have been given me than a tankard, as it really symbolise s Imperial C o l l e g e Union, doesn't it? However, it will be well used, I can promise! I'd like to wish the Union every s u c c e s s for the future, I'm sure that under the g u i d a n c e of Norm, Paul and Dave things will look up again! Goodbye.

Purple Patch W e i l , here we are again at the start of yet another academi c year. F o r some of you this is the beginn i n g of a new phase as either an undergraduate or as a postgraduate. F o r most of y o u it is merely the beginning of another y j a r in y o u r U n i v e r s i t y career. I w o u l d l i k e to take this o p p o r t u n i t y of w e l c o m i n g each a n d every one of y o u into the U n i o n for the c o m i n g year, a n d hope that we get on w e l l together. I

I have never been in a situation l i k e this bei'ore, and so a l l the help o r ideas w h i c h y o u c a n give w i l l be most appreciated. O n e thing w h i c h should be made clear at ithe beg i n n i n g of this year, is that the U n i o n meetings should take the f o r m of a F o r u m in which anyone can speak. W h a t m a k e s these meetings so b o r i n g is When the same people speak on every m o t i o n , and thus one satisfactory c o n c l u s i o n ito the bored o m p r o b l e m is to speak when you have something to say. It doesn't t a k e m u c h to stand u p and say what y o u t h i n k . If y o u honestly don% have the nerve to Stand u p t h e n please c o m e ito the U n i o n office before the meeting and put f o r w a r d your views to one of us in here and we w i l l try to put forw a r d y o u r point of view.

W e also have to elect a g r o u p of people ito represent the U n i o n at the N o v e m b e r N . U . S . conference. Although these elections may seem b o r i n g , it is essential that we have a representative vote at the meeti n g so that those persons elected really d o represent you. T h e larger issues w h i c h we w i l l face this year are

groups that attend S o c s o c meetings. Last term it sprang to fame when it published the name of Lambton/ the third minister involved in the J e l l i c o e affair when everyone tried to disown it, fearing a libel suit. However nothing happened and since the Y o u n g Liberals published a similar e x p o s e and didn't get sued it seems that nothing will. . Other publications that find their way i n t o 10 are " S e n n e t " the University of London Union newspaper which appears fortnightly, and " M a g n u s " the N U S glossy w h i c h will actually pay you for articles. Not to be forgotten are the University of London Bulletin published primarily for staff, and our own IC News which appears weekly and is difficult to read owing to its texture of intricately folded sheet metal. However both of these will keep you up to date with what's going on in the lofty c i r c l e s of the non-student University areas. P r o d u c e d o n c e a year (at present), and in the; distant past the only publication at IC, is the Phoenix. Primarily a literary magazine it prints stories, poems, drawings, photographs and c o m mentary and w e l c o m e s any contributions from all students. Last year's P h o e n i x was somewhat delayed in going to press but should be out in th£ beginning of this term. S o then, with all that to o c c u p y your sleepless nights as well as the o c c a s i o n a l flurry of bumprt sheets, you will soon discover that not being able to read and write is no e x c u s e for doing s c i e n c e !

HON. SEC'S BIT Welcome to Imperial College. I w o u l d like to spend time explaining all the virtues a n d the ins and outs of various aspects of college life but there are numerous other publications in w h i c h this is adequately done a n d there is enough business i n this c o l u m n this week without this extra burden. BOMBS I w o u l d like to give a timely warning. A l r e a d y during the vacation, the college has been the victim of a b o m b hoax. T h e next one, however, may not be a hoax. A l l students are asked to keep a look-out for any suspicious parcels, boxes, bags, etc. If y o u have any doubts as to its contents then don't touch. W a r n the people i n the immediate area a n d contact College Security/Fire Officer o n i n ternal 2741. D o not under any circumstances tamper w i t h the parcel yourself. M a k e sure that y o u are acquainted w i t h the college alarm systems. They are here for your benefit. Please take notice of them. L E G A L AID T h e U n i o n has telephone access to a q u a l i fied solicitor. If y o u have any legal problems, e.g. accommodation, drugs, m o t o r accidents, etc., contact me i n the U n i o n office and I w i l l put y o u i n touch w i t h h i m . COMMEMORATION DAY This annual event takes place o n Thursday, October 25th. A l l members of the college are invited and admission to the degree ceremony at the R o y a l A l b e r t H a l l a n d the following tea is free. Note: to get the free tea y o u are expected to attend the ceremony! In the evening the C o m m e m o r a t i o n D a y B a l l is held. F o r the second year r u n n i n g this w i l l take place i n College Block. T h e price is £5.50 a double ticket and this includes a five course meal with sherry, dinner wines a n d port. A l s o provided is a late bar (approx. 2 the next m o r n ing), a dance band, cabaret a n d discotheque. This is the first formal event of the year and is an excellent introduction to this aspect of college life. Tickets are limited and last year it was a complete sell-out well i n advance, so get your tickets early. They are available from Jen ( U n i o n Clerk) i n the U n i o n office. U.G.M. A s y o u will soon find out, these happen at frequent intervals throughout the year. They are supposedly the most important meetings within the U n i o n . T h r o u g h these, elections are held, policy decided a n d numerous debates

held. F o r the sake of the U n i o n it is i m por tant that y o u attend all U . G . M s . The first one w i l l be held this Thursday, October 4th i n the Great H a l l , College B l o c k at 1.00. A m o n g the items to be discussed are entertainments, C h i l e , S. A f r i c a , G r a n t s C a m p a i g n , as well as elections for numerous posts. Before y o u come, however, please read carefully the standing orders for U n i o n Meetings w h i c h will be found on page 45 of the U n i o n Blue Book. UNION DIRECTORY T h i s year there w i l l be a U n i o n Directory, T o be of most use it is necessary for this to be published as soon into term as possible. T h i s is an urgent plea for information. A l l clubs, societies, bodies a n d anyone w h o has reason to believe he/she should be included i n this directory are asked to send me information as to their name, address, telephone no., etc. If possible I w o u l d like this information before October 10th. PARKING P a r k i n g space at Imperial College is limited and because of this it is the policy of the U n i o n to choose the applicants o n the merit of each application. P a r k i n g application forms are available from the U n i o n office a n d these should be filled i n and completed on or before F r i d a y , 5th October. O n the 6th a n d 7th at October the U n i o n p a r k i n g committee w i l l meet a n d consider the applications a n d a list of successful people should be published i n the F e l i x edition of Tuesday, 9th October with details of h o w to obtain the permits. There are areas w i t h i n the college precincts specifically allocated for- motor-cyclists. I n particular these include an area to the south of Linstead H a l l , west of the P.O. i n Imperial Institute R o a d and behind the Physics b u i l d ing. Motor-cyclists are asked to keep to the m a r k e d areas and to refrain from p a r k i n g between cars. REGISTRATION C A R D O n the back of your yellow registration card you will find two sets of boxes. A t the bottom there are seven numbered 1—7, These are crossed off when you vote in college elections. A t the top there are 15 boxes lettered A — P .
