N U S acts to thwart IC

'Stop undercutting' says NUS The National Union of Students has this week warned IC Union that it cannot expect any more student discount cards if the Union continues to sell them at £ 1 . 7 5 . IC Union had initially bought a batch of 200 discount cards and associated handbooks.

ELECTION FEVER gripped the R C S l i when fourteen, no l e s s , nominations were made for the title 'Queen of J e z ' . Last date for nominations was last Tuesday, and unfortunately (but as expected) the the proposal of the RCSU V P , Steve Braund, was declared invalid. The successful candidate this year is Paola Muszynska, (hope I got that right) who is a first year L i f e Scientist.

The d e c i s i o n to s e l l the c a r d s at l e s s than the r e c o m mended £2 w a s t a k e n at l a s t week's Union General Meeting following an IC Union Executive recommendation. Union officers argued that if the c a r d s were s o l d at £2 then the U n i o n w o u l d r e c e i v e a 50p c o m m i s s i o n on e a c h c a r d s o l d , a n amount i n c o n s i s t e n t w i t h the e x t r a a d m i n i s t r a t i v e work required. The warning came from discount scheme organiser Pete Anwyl who visited Imperial shortly after an executive meeting last Monday . He told Honorary Secretary J o h n White that i f t h e U n i o n a n t i c i p a t e d s e l l i n g the next b a t c h of c a r d s at l e s s than the recommended £2 then I C U could forget the a d d i t i o n a l supplies.

COLLEGE NOTICES

SECURITY NEWS The attention of Students, particularly now arrivals to the College, is drawn to the services provided by the security staff and students should not hesitate to contact the Security Officer, Room 763, Sherfield Building, internal telephone number 2741 regarding any security matter and in particular anything concerning the following:-

t Every year hundreds of items of personal property are found and handed In at the Security Office — many such items are never are returned to the finders. claimed by the losers and eventually Students and Staff who lose property should promptly inform the security staff and in many cases the items will be speedily of personal property should restored. Persons finding items hand them in to the Security Office or to one of the messengers buildings. or security guards on any of the

s It Is an unfortunate fact of life that, on an open campus such this where a very large number of people are allowed as considerable freedom of access, periodical spates of stealing occur. A good deal of this is due to the incursions of 'walk in' thieves who prey on institutions such as this and on the museums, several of which are in close proximity to the College. Both Students and Staff are requested to co-operate with security staff by promptly reporting to the Security Officer any suspicious persons seen loitering in college buildings or entering offices or laboratories with no apparent authority. Wallets, cash, Cheque are the things most books, calculators, slide rules, watches and they should never be left in jackets or commonly stolen brief cases In unattended rooms, in particular, cheque books and cheque cards should always be carried separately on the person £S Instances have occurred where heavy withdrawals of cash Irom banks have been made through thieves having obtained possession of both card and cheque book. Pedal cycles are currently very attractive to thieves and it brought on to the campus they should be secured to the cycle

The Orienteering C l u b i s one of the newest college c l u b s , but already it i s one o f the most active. T h i s term, we will be taking part in Orienteering Events nearly every Sunday i n forests in the South of England. We usually travel by minibus, leaving fairly early on Sunday morning, and getting back about mid-afternoon. Orienteering is a sport that should appeal to anyone with a pair of legs and a liking for the c o u n t r y - s i d e . There are always a variety of courses varying in length between 2 and 8 miles, 'so you can choose the course you prefer. Whether you are strolling round, or running round, it i s best to try a short course the first time and move up as you gain experience.

n For those who don't yet know what the sport involves, the idea is to make one's way round a set' of checkpoints in the forest in the shortest time using map and compass. The checkpoints consist of red and white markers hung on some feature eg a spur, a path junction^and one chooses one's own route between them. T o do well, navigation i s just as important as speed. T o find out more about the sport, lunchtime come along to our Friday meetings, held regularly in the Senior Common Room ( Union First Floor). At these meetings, a cheap bread and cheese lunch is provided, and transport for forthcoming events is arranged. David Rosen (Captain) Astronomy Group : Int 4458

Plastic covered rack with a heavy chain and stout padlock. cables of the kind purchased in cycle shops provide little deterrent to thieves and should not be used. If you value your cycle please insure it.

r Unless you have been authorised to park your car on the campus do not bring it into the College car park otherwise you will inconvenience some person who has an authorised parking place. Derelict vehicles are also'from time to time an embarrassment to the College and any vehicle which ceases to be roao of by the owner and not left on the worthy should be disposed car park where it may quickly be cannibalised by persons who are quick to recognise that it has been abandoned. Motor cycles into the College must be registered with the Security brought Officer and Students are requested to park only in the authorised can result in parking spaces. Parking in between motor vehicles damage to both cars and motor cycles.

Language classes Weekly c l a s s e s in French, German and Russian will be held throughout the session 1976—77. They are open, free of charge, to a l l members of Imperial College and provide for three levels of attainment: Elementary — for complete beginners. (Two periods of 1 hour per week). Intermediate —for students who have previously completed at least a year's course in the language. (One period 1^ hours per week). Advanced —for students who have already followed the Intermediate course or who have reached a standard corresponding to an ' O ' level p a s s . (One period of IVi hours per week).

t "" If you wish to enrol for these c l a s s e s get in touch with Mrs Campion in the Associated Studies office (53 Prince's Gate, internal 3958) between 9.30 and 12.00 noon any weekday.

F E L I X , O C T O B E R 15th 1976 - 7

s Broadcast radio has now been in London for 54 years, starting humbly with 2LO broadcasting from the roof of Selfridges by the British Broadcasting Company. The BBC rapidly opened other stations throughout the country and was made a public corporation. in 1927 (perhaps they'll be celebrating another 50th aniversary next year?). During the 30's the BBC changed it's structure to the 'National' and an alternative network of regional stations. After the war the 'National' became the 'Light Programme' and the regionals the 'Home Service'. These were joined by the 'Third Programme' in the late 40's. Domestic broadcasting until this time had been on the long and medium wave but the 50's saw the introduction of the lirst VHF transmitters.

N l

e During the 50's and early 60's it was generally assumed that television would virtually replace radio in the future. This theory was proved not necessarily correct by the pirates in the mid 60's. The first of the pirates was Radio Caroline, broadcasting from a boat anchored off the Essex coast. The pirates exploited the advantages of radio over T V . Like its low cost, its personel appeal and its ability to form images in the mind of the lieiener. These stations were in international waters so they were outside the law (rather than illegal). The government attempted, fairly successfully, to control these stations in 1967 by making any link that they had with the UK illegal (although they do not have any control over the broadcasting itself). This saw the death of most of the pirates. The pirates had clearly demonstrated that radio was still very much alive, so the BBC pushed ahead on two fronts; it split the Light Programme

LBC

into the present Radio 1 and 2 and it re-introduced local stations. In October 1973 the first of .the reconstituted IBA's commercial stations, LBC, opened; this has been followed by 18 other stations. The two London local commercial stations, LBC and Capital Radio do command a fair audience but do not seem to be paying well. Both have had to be helped in the recent past by Canadian interests (now 29% of Capital Radio and 49.5% of LBC) possible reasons for this are LBC's original costing for it supplying news for the projected 60 stations whilst only 19 are on the air and Capital's enormous staff (over 200) including people on big star salaries.

y Of the London stations the one to watch in the future is the BBC local station, Radio London, the audience

figures are rising rapidly - a fact that will not surprise anyone who has met its manager, Alan Holden, who is a major driving force. Anyone who has been to several of the stations, as I have, cannot have failed to notice the very friendly atmosphere of the station compared with some of the. others.

e The future of broadcasting is currently held in the balance awaiting the publication of the Annan Committee report on its future. The outcome of this is hard to predict but they have already stated that they are in favour of local radio so it would seem that it is here to stay in some form. There is some speculation that local radio will be taken from both the BBC and IBA and be controlled by the same body-.

Things like that which aren't gimmicks and they aren't things that are going to gain us an enormous audience. They are not flashy things to do, but things like that they help us get more involved and more into the community. It's things like that, now that we apparently have this large audience, that enable us to consolidate the audience figures, so that they (the listeners) are there just because they're going to hear records they want to hear but because there are other things going on as well.'

I w a s rather l o o k i n g forward to t h i s L P s i n c e t h e i r l a s t e f f o r t , (whose t i t l e I c a n ' t mention b e c a u s e of the c o m p e t i t i o n ) s p a n n e d the v o i d between f o l k and r o c k r e m a r k a b l y w e l l .

N o w , w i t h R o c k e t C o t t a g e , Span have gone t o o far for e v e n me to rave a b o u t . F o l k d e v o t e e s have p l a y e d it too have been s h o c k e d . A t p o i n t s good lyrics have been s a c r i f i c e d to a inept c o m m e r c i a l arrangement, at o t h e r s , s u c h a s Orfeo/ Nathan's Reel the treatment is too c a s u a l and f l i m s y that I g o t the f e e l i n g S t e e l e y e were g e t t i n g i n s i n c e r e about their m u s i c . My main c r i t i c i s m s must be v e n t e d on 'The Twelve Witches' and 'Sir John The Rose'. T h e former h a s a m e l l a t r o n intro and i n t e r l u d e s that a r e j u s t too bland for t h i s sort of m u s i c . T h e latter t a k e s up a major c h u n k of the s e c o n d s i d e . It h a s o n l y a t w i n k l i n g of f o l k , the rest i s punk rock and c o m m e r c i a l i t y . The excellent lyrics (traditional) . d e p i c t a s a d S c o t t i s h t a l e — I wonder if the R o l l e r s w i l l do a c o v e r v e r s i o n ? With a d i f f e r e n t producer t h i s may have come off w e l l ; a s it i s it s m a c k s too much of t h e . w o r s e end of the hit parade,, the chorus e s p e c i a l l y . O n the other" hand the vamped up jig 'Sligo Maid' comes across well but it w o n ' t p l e a s e t r a d i t i o n a l f o l k f a n s .

H o w e v e r , for my part I felt the c o m m a n d i n g rhythm a n d e n t h r a l l i n g v i o l i n i n t o n n a t i o n s h e l d the t r a c k t o g e t h e r e x t r e m e l y w e l l . H a v i n g got the b o d i e s out the w a y , a few w o r d s on the better s o n g s . My favourite is 'Fighting for Strangers' (chorus m u s i c 'To Be A Pilgrim') which assesses the motivation behind a n i n e t e e n t h century s o l d i e r , p a i n t i n g a rueful p i c t u r e of the l i m b l e s s v i c t i m s of manmade strife. A very perceptive treatment i n d e e d . 'The Brown Girl' is another good number. Its m a i n point i s the s t r o n g , v e r s a t i l e and e n i g m a t i c v o c a l treatment of Moddy P r i o r , w h o pounds literally through t h i s ' l o v e tradgedy'.

Judo Club

Ancient art is now fine all-round exercise Much mystery and confusion surrounds of judo. The gentle art of the sport judo was devised in 1882 by Dr Jigoro Kano, who founded the Kodokan School In Tokyo. Kano's ideas incorporated jiu-jitsu techniques, many of the ancient but his wish was to create a relatively safe and healthy pursuit for the youth of Japan and the rest of the world. Judo can be regarded from two different view points — the first self defence and the second, sport. The confusion between these two in the west arose from its being taught to army and police personnel primarily tor self defence and the way it is used in many films. This is not to say that the exponents of soort iudo would not be at an advantage should they need to defend themselves. exercise tor Judo is a line all-round people of all ages, developing bodymind coordination, patience, consideration, strength and endurance: Sei Ryoko Zen Y o — the full and most beneficial use of

all the faculties (Jigoro Kano). It can be divided into several groups of techniques — Osaekomiwaza (holding), Newaza (grappling), Tachniwaza (throwing), Shimewaza (strangling) and Kansetsuwaza (arm-locking). The art of striking (Atemiwaza) is not included in sport judo.

e The IC Judo Club, for both men and women, is one of the most active London University clubs, having a large mat (over 850 sq ft) and 1st Dan black belt tuition. The club meets in the gym of the Union in Prince Consort Road on Tuesdays from 6.30 to 8.00. Gradings and Thursdays are held regularly at the University of London Union and at the Budokwai (one of Europes leading clubs). The usual evening consists ot a warm-up period, falling practice (Ukemi), throwing practice (Uchikomi) —where the techniques are polished, a taught section with

related practice and finally Randori or free practice. The evening ends with loosening-up exercises, a warm shower and some socialising in the downstairs club, bar. Beginners are welcome at this and tor those who are more experienced there is also the opportunity to practise at one of London's many non-university establishments. It is hoped this year that some intercollege evenings can be arranged and that the club will continue to be a lively and friendly one. There is also a black belt coach tor Aikido. a very graceful and powerful form of self defence; again it is for both men and women.
