Poor brewery supplies force Bar to switch to reliable ale source

Watneys take over Union Bar South face climb reduced to closing -time stroll Earlier this week, news r e a c h e d us that a strong team of I m p e r i a l c l i m b e r s have f i n a l l y overcome one of the l a s t of the great problems o f the l o c a l i t y . Late last Tuesday evening, a small dedicated band of mountaineers reduced this d i f f i c u l t route (the t r a v e r s e of of the South F a c e o f B e i t B u i l d i n g , e a s t w a r d s from t h e U n i o n A r c h ) to a mere c l o s i n g time s t r o l l . One o f t h e i r more prominent members h a s k i n d l y p r o v i d e d the f o l l o w i n g d e t a i l s of the e x p e d ition: "The climb began by scaling the wrought iron gate and transferring to the masonary of the archway, from where we dropped down to the narrow sill outside the 'Guard Box'. Moving cautious ly to our right we stepped across to the Varitype Ledge. "The next stage was a careful shuffle along the Printing

Room sill to the difficult Rose Window, which has proved a thorn in the side of previous attempts. However, high spirits within the team carried us easily across to the smallest ledge of the traverse, after which comes the previously 'Impossible Corner'. "This was turned after a few close shaves when members of the ' expedition lost their footing. Using a hitherto untried technique, our leader finally gained the'relative safety of the of the next eastward ledge. "The team followed his example and the final stage past the Botany Entrance proved a mere formality." Our s t a f f e x p e r t o n c l i m b i n g matters, Ms V i r g i n i a Creeper, has r a i s e d grave doubts a s to the n e w method u s e d to c r a c k the " I m p o s s i b l e C o r n e r " .

However this terrorist

Rumours have been circulating college during the past week that, following a visit by the Watney's representative, a different brewery will be supplying the Union Bar in the New Year. At present it has not been possible to track down either confirmation o r a firm denial but certainly there has been a strong reaction from some members of the Union closely involved with bar activities.

d A n y move t o c h a n g e to a different brewery w o u l d come a s no s u r p r i s e t o those p e o p l e conversant with recent failures on the part o f the p r e s e n t s u p p l i e r s . D u r i n g the p a s t f e w w e e k s the draught l e m o n a d e t a p has been removed after S c h weppes proved inefficient in supplying sufficient s t o c k s to k e e p p a c e w i t h s a l e s .

H a v i n g h e a r d the rumour that Watney-Mann were b e i n g c a l l e d upon to s u p p l y u s , o u r c o r r e s pondent went o u t t o gauge reaction. N o one would confirm or deny the rumours but m a n y w e l l k n o w n r e g u l a r s were q u i t e v o c a l about the matter. P a u l Kurowski, Chris Morrell and A d r i a n Sudworth c o u l d manage l i t t l e more than a s t u n n e d , "What!", w h i l s t Steve D e a r i n g of C i t y a n d G u i l d s w a s somewhat ****** more f o r t h c o m i n g : "It's what!" N i c k Brayshaw was not a v a i l a b l e to comment but Mr J o h n White s e e m e d u n c o n c e r n e d , p a u s i n g o n l y t o comment that "It doesn't make any difference to me". T h e o f f i c i a l ( ? ) I C U line a p p e a r s to come from Derrick Everett (Bar Committee Chairman), who would only s a y that the c h o i c e o f b e e r s "is up to Brendan (Bar Manager)" a n d he thought the c h a n g e s were "a malicious rumour".

s Further investigations, inc l u d i n g staff i n t e r v i e w s , s e r v e d o n l y to c l a r i f y the rumours. It w o u l d a p p e a r the W a t n e y ' s a r e b e i n g a s k e d to s u p p l y r e a l a l e ( g o i n g under the trade name o f " F i n e d A l e " ) , but that s u p p l i e s of p r e s e n t e x t r a s , s u c h a s c i d e r and Guinness (draught a n d oottled), should remain u n affected.

"Til work for any one who pays me" he s a i d in answer to our reporter's q u e s t i o n s . P e r h a p s Mr C l e m e n t s i s unaware o f t h e d e t r i m e n t a l e f f e c t o n trade that t h i s c h a n g e could have.
