"We act for Mr Shuttleworth who has referred a copy of the Union Bluebook to us together with copies of correspondence relevant to his improper removal as Editor of the Union newspaper.

Paragraph 19 of the Rule Book states quite clearly that any amendments to the rules can into the Book in only be incorporated accordance with rule Wand the Editor of the newspaper can only be removed from office in accordance with rule 4b. Mr Shuttleworth has therefore been properly appointed Editor and cannot be dismissed in the way in which you have purported to do. We are therefore writing to you to require you by next Monday 20th August to confirm to us in writing that Mr Shuttleworth will be allowed to continue as Editor and that his grant be reinstated. If you are unable to accede to our request then our client will have no alternative but to institute proceedings against you and the Deputy President as officers of the Union for the appropriate couM order."

The ULU Jamboree is the only place in London where you can watch in gut-rending anticipation as the Daring ULU Mountaineers absail down the sirfe or of Senate House, where you can recapture those blissful holiday moments in Greece as you sway to the exotic rhythms of The Hellenic Society, where you can explore the mysterious depths of the ULU swimming pool, courtesy of the Sub Aqua clue.

It fulfills a critical role in defending and promoting the academic, social and financial interest of its 47,000 students at University l e v e l . The SRC researches issues like grants and fees and international relations and then both argues its case to the University Senate and organises demonstrative action at a college level Join in the campaigns and fight for student mass solidarity! Details from Joe Bailey (Chairperson) on 580 9551 extension 29.

ulu ents To try and describe ULU ENTS in such a l a small space is like trying to engrave 'War & Peace' on a pin-head. The last person to cttempt thr latter was Helmut Schule, a Bavarian Postmaster - plucky Helmut got half way through Part III before being wheeled off to the Sanitorium. S o , at great risk to my sanity , I will say, briefly, that ULU ENTS provide the best in live entertainment their Balls are ballsier, their discos are discoe-er, their films are filmier and their prices are faintly ridiculous. Come along to ULU and be ENTertained. N . b . if you fancy yourself as a ligger/groupie why not join the ENTS committee, and gob at your favourite stars from closerange. You even get paid for enjoying yourself. floors heave and the building sways to the strains of the best music around and students put their health at risk in the crush for bands, dancing, films and food. Presented in glorious technicolour, the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness myth is exploded as ULU's autumn takes off in a heat-wave of frolicks, fizz and frenetic decadence.

Societies won't be collecting money from freshers, so if you're interested in any societies, give them your name and they'll get in touch with y o u . Don't be put off joining a society just because you don't think you know e n o u g h about it to be a member, the whole point of these societies is to givo you the opportunity and training to do something different.

Hello people and Freshers T h i s is the first in the s e a s o n s tedious Pressypieces. I will endeavour to make them interesting but it is very unlikely that I will. Despite having to c h a n n e l vast proportions of my energy upon court cases a n d solicitors letters, I have been quite busy. O n e of the big things to blow up just before the hols was a Tory Government. B e that as it may, this one has d e c i d e d to increase t h e fees of O v e r s e a s Studes, already unfairly discriminatory, by a further 2 3 % above the cost of living increases. Despite C o l l e g e ' s c o n t i n u e d support of o n - c o u r s e students by H a r d s h i p F u n d the situation is very unsatisfactory. T h e rationing by price is just o n e of the G o v e r n m e n t ' s stated c u t b a c k s in Higher E d u c a t i o n and I feel that it is s o m e t h i n g we must all c o n c e r n ourselves with. M a l c o l m a n d I both attended a c o n f e r e n c e in Bradford a n d are totally committed to take part in s o m e nationally coordinated campaign.

WUS SCHOLARSHIP O n c e again I must urge you to donate to the W U S S c h o l a r s h i p Fund, a really worthwile cause. OUTRO If y o u read my report to the U G M there is plenty more heavy stuff to read and there's hardly been a mention of kinky Hon. S e x like the o l d days. I hope your stay here is long, fun and successful.

STAFF T H E FRESHERS' BIT Pam Johnston U n i o n Receptionist s i n c e 1966, P a m has had to retire d u e to ill health. I hope that all students will join me in wishing her all the best for her future life when she returns to C a n a d a . MAZ FELLOWS D u e to the previously a n n o u n c e d departure of Gill M c C o n w a y , M a z has started as the F E L I X phototypesetter operator. I hope that her stay with the U n i o n will be long a n d enjoyable. INJUNCTIVITIS R e g a r d i n g the F E L I X Editorship, this matter is still s u b judice, this means that only facts can be presented and that is d o n e elsewhere. I just hope that things settle d o w n a n d everyone lives happily ever after.

W e l c o m e to IC! This the first of a series of intensely boring articles, which a lot of people seem to read anyway in preference to paying attention to the first lecture o n Friday mornings. I'm responsible for various o d d s a n d sods c o n c e r n e d with running kthe U n i o n , if you're interested in how we run things or have any questions about the U n i o n , do c o m e a n d have a word with me (I'm in the U n i o n Bar most nights). I don't bite! O n e of the Union's main functions is to help cater for your social and sporting activities. If you've ever wanted to take up a new hobb y but never had adequate facilities available, there's a g o o d c h a n c e you'll find what y o u want at the Fresher's Fair tomorrow, where well over 100 clubs a n d societies will be

In case y o u didn't know, w e are providing c a m p beds in the Union B u i l d i n g for 50p a night for people w h o still haven't found anywhere to live-just turn up between 11:00 a n d 12:00. I expect this to go on for about 3 weeks, after w h i c h we'll have to turf people out. FRESHER' FAIR Due to the work being done on Beit Q u a d , the outdoor stalls have had to be moved to the Q u e e n ' s L a w n , and I have also d e c i d e d to use the Sherfield Lower Refectory s o that more stalls c a n be a c c o m m o d a t e d . Details of arrangements have been sent to all stallholders, so c h e c k your letter racks, a n d if y o u haven't received a note, then c o m e and see me. With any luck, there s h o u l d be a set of maps for the fair a n d an alphabetical list of societies in this F E LI X somewhere. T h e tour STARTS AT 2:30, PLEASE DO NOT COME BEFORE THIS TIME as societies will be busy setting up their stalls, w h i c h is made m u c h more difficult if rooms are already c r o w d e d with people. BAR A N D R E F E C T O R Y L O S S E S Last year, ÂŁ4,000 worth of glasses and ÂŁ6,000 of c r o c k e r y a n d cutlery went missing from C o l l e g e bars a n d refectories. T h e s e losses have to be paid for by higher bar and refectory prices, so don't take them away. If these sort of losses continue, the U n i o n may have to start taking disciplinary action against people d o i n g so-remember, you're just making other people pay by the resulting higher prices. ELECTIONS There are s o m e v a c a n c i e s on two of the committees w h i c h I chair; we need two ordinary members for the F i n a n c e C o m m i t t e e a n d three for the L o n d o n Student Travel C o m m i t t e e (which may be on the way to being c h a n g e d to the Services C o m m i t t e e by the first Union meeting o n T h u r s d a y ) . Nomination papers for these posts are up o n the C o u n c i l noticeboard in the U n i o n Lower L o u n g e now.

Roger didn't like the other photo, so here's a better one. (Roger's the one on the left).

JUST A SEC I trust your're enjoying your first day at C o l l e g e . M y o w n recollection, of two years ago, is one of endless queues, endless talks and an evening initially spent witn one of my p r e d e c e s s o r s . Let me begin by introducing myself; I like Stanley Kubrick, S l o a n e s , the Purple Hearts, candlelight and breaking into parent's houses. I hate the U n d e r g r o u n d , " C h a r l i e " , tinned f o o d , watching television and Capita l Radio. I'm living in K e o g h Hall, R o o m 388. M y job in the U n i o n is one of c o m m u n i c a t i o n (!-ed), planning, servicing and dealing with the ind'vidual needs of U n i o n members. I can be found in the U n i o n Office, in the Beit building, so please c o m e over if y o u think that there is anything we c a n do for y o u . A n especiall y g o o d time to c o m e is during the Fresher's Fair. T h i s is the first of a n u m b e r of articles w h i c h will appear this year- hopefully even if they don't make your pulse q u i c k e n they will at least keep y o u actively involved. The First Week Here's a list of things y o u s h o u l d / m u s t do in the first week here: 1. Register in C o l l e g e 2.

The First Union Meeting Yes folks, don't be late, join the queue and rub s h o u l d e r s with those who have learnt that U G M s are perhaps the ultimate use of one's time. It all h a p p e n s at 1pm on Thursday in the Great Hall. Last year saw an increase in the number of people turning up for U G M s and I hope this trend will continue. After all, if you want to make y o u r voice heard, a really effective way is to turn up and vote on the issues that affect y o u . Detais of U G M s will be found in E X E C NEWS w h i c h is distributed to all departments. The First Elections Yes, you've g u e s s e d it, s o m e of these are c a u s e d by exam failures(We wish A n d y , J o h n , A n d y and Scott ah the best). The posts open now are: a) F E L I X Editor- w h i c h will b e e l e c t e d by C o l l e g e wide ballot over two days. b) Elec. E n g . Departmental Representative- elected by a one day ballot in the department c) Min. Res. Eng. Dep. Rep. d) M a n a g e m e n t S c i e n c e Dep. Rep e) 3 ordinary members of the A c a d e m i c Affairs C o m m i t e e - elected during U G M on 16th Oct. f) 2 ordinary members of the U n i o n finance C o m m i t t e e g) 2 ordinary members of the C o m u n i t y Action Group h) 3 ordinary members of L o n d o n Student Travel C o m m i t t e e T h e papers for all these posts are up in either the U n i o n L o w e r L o u n g e or the respective department, so if you fancy standing for one of these posts, find out what it entails and get a proposer and seconders. The First Duplicating Demonstration T o use one of the U n i o n Gestetner Duplicators, w h i c h are situated in the F E L I X Office, you must have attended o n e of this year's demonstrations. The first is on Monday,8th October at 1pm in the FELIX Office. S o Secretaries of clubs and societies don't forget. O n the s a m e subject, you will be able to obtain keys for the duplicators(providing that you have registered) and ink and paper from me in the U n i o n Office. Well, that's all for now. H o p e to meet you s o o n and have a great time. Roger Stotesbury

A s part of a national c a m p a i g n to promote rubella (German measles) vaccinat io n and thus further to reduce the number of c o n g e n i a l l y h a n d i c a p p e d babies, the Health Centre offers rubella vaccination to all w o m e n under 40 in C o l l e g e and particularly to students. A l l w o m e n are invited to attend the Health C e n t r e between 10 and 10.30 am on W e d n e s d a y s in the A u t u m n T e r m for an initial b l o o d test to determin if they have immunity (whetheror n o t t h e y have had rubella vaccinat io n already). T h o s e w h o have no immunity will then be sent an appointment for the v ac c inat ion .

PG TIPS For Fresher P G s . T h e r e is no better introduction to the existing o n e s than to c o m e along to our bar night on W ednesday , 3rd O c t o b e r , starting at 6:00 p.m. in Stan's Bar, S o u t h s i d e . all 'old' P G s are, of c o u r s e , equally welcome. A l l Fresher P G s are automatically members of the IC P o s t g r a d u a t e G r o u p , w h i c h exists to promote the welfare of P G s a n d to e n s u r e adequate socialization amongst them. P l o u g h m a n ' s lunches, bar nights and a trip to C a m b r i d g e were part of our agenda last year. It is important for Freshers to participate in activities outside of ' r u n of-the-mill' research a n d , in addition, to the P G G r o u p , there are many other societies y o u may join. Look out for the " A s s o c i a t e d S t u d i e s " booklet w h i c h gives details of many interesting films, lectures, concerts etc. - you s h o u l d find something to interest y o u in that. If, during your first weeks here, y o u find anything p u z z l i n g , distasteful or even wonderful about postgraduate life here, do not hesitate to let either myself or one of my c o l l e a g u e s k n o w about it. We will be available to d i s c u s s the activities of the P G G r o u p with you at our stall in Freshers Fair (Tuesday, 2nd O c t o b e r - M a l c o l m tells me it will be in Sherfield Lower Refectory). If y o u can't make it to that, then c o m e along to the bar night on W e d n e s d a y . See you amongst the' L o n d o n Pride and E S B (drinks are s u b s i d i s e d to the tune of lOp per pint). RICHARD EARL, P G Affairs Officer

O n e has only to look back over the preceding year's activities to see just how s u c c e s s f u l the c l u b has been in it's aim to flee from L o n d o n . D u r i n g the autumn and spring terms trips were arranged to the B r e c o n s , Lake district, S n o w d o n i a , S o u t h D o w n s and Y o r k s h i r e . A * Easter a party went to S c o t l a n d , and forthree weeks during the s u m m e r another trip to the Austrian T y r o l a n d the A l s a c e region of France was undertaken. O n arrival at our various destinations people are free to do as they please. In this way we h o p e to appeal to the walker, climber, skier, cyclist, canoeist, p h o t o g r a p h e r and nature lover. Travel is by minibus, and the transport i n c u r r e d are s u b s i d i s e d by the R C C . Whilst away, we stay in Youth Hostels, 'huts' or tents and take our own f o o d with us. In this way costs are minimised.

In order to arrange o u r t r i p s away, and also to get to know other members of the club, we meet on T h u r s d a y lunch times in S o u t h s i d e U p p e r L o u n g e for 'butties'. In addition to these rather informal o c c a s i o n s , we do also visit s o m e very pleasant L o n d o n restaurants to s a m p l e 'haute cuisine'. Having wetted your appeitite then, we look forward to s e e i n g y o u at Freshers Fair, where we will be only too pleased to d i s c u s s o u r activities in more detail.

RAILWAY SOCIETY T o most people the mention of 'Railway S o c i e t y ' immediately conjures up visions of spotty little kids in scruffy macs standing on railway stations making a lot of noise and scribblin g d o w n train numbers.

T h e Imperial C o l l e g e British R e d C r o s s S o c i e t y is unique in that it is the only s u c h establishment within a University c a m p u s in the British Isles. It consists of a Voluntary A i d Detachment and a M e m b e r s ' G r o u p .

In I C R S this image is very far from the truth, and to prove it the society undertook a continental tour this summer.- It proved to be a veritable cultural feast i n c o r p o r a t i n g s u c h M e c c a s of the railway s c e n e as Beauvais C a t h e d r a l , Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, A r c de T riomphe , a J a z z concert, various S p a n i s h s w i m m i n g pools and beaches, Bastille Day celebrations and a c o n s i d e r a b l e quantity of local vino. T h e whole expedition was undertaken in a c o l l e g e minibus and we c a m p e d at a number of off-beat places. We ate like Lords, enjoying Waitrose s o u p , raviolli meatballs and marmalade deep in the S p a n i s h interior. A m o n g our major discoveries were that the S p a n i s h don't call beer-beer, w h i c h c a u s e d not a few p r o b l e m s early o n .

T h e Voluntary A i d Detachment is made up of uniformed personnel qualified in First A i d and N u r s i n g w h o provide First A i d facilities as required within the L o n d o n area.

In our spare time we even m a n a g e d to visit one preserved and two industrial railways w h i c h were operated by steam locomotives. If you want to hear more about this trip, and the events w h i c h have been arranged for this s e s s i o n , including a talk on the first ever trip by British enthusiasts to C h i n a (they ended up visiting a wide range of porcelain f a c t o r i e s ) , c o m e a l o n g to our Introductory Meeting at 5.40pm in M e c h Eng 640 on T u e s d a y 9 October. IC ISLAMIC SOCIETY invites everyone to join them at the F R E S H E R ' FAIR T h e C o m m i t t e e will be pleased to help a n y o n e with difficulties in performing an Islamic way of life - see us at the fair.

In return for this privilege we put on 2 1/2 p r o d u c t i o n s a year, organise the lighting for numerous parties (everything from Fred's 21st to the S i l w o o d A n n u a l Ball) and go on theatre visits.

T h e M e m b e r s ' G r o u p primarily acts as a social welfare volunteers group within the local c o m m u n i t y : hospital visiting, escorting disabled and elderly persons and a s s i s t i n g with the mentally handicapped. T h e S o c i e t y provides opportunities for any member of the C o l l e g e , whether students or staff, to learn First A i d and N u r s i n g and invites You to c o m e along and learn how to c o p e in the event of an accident or illness. We are holding an Introductory Meeting on THURSDAY 4th O C T O B E R Botany/Zoology at 6.30pm in the Common Room (under the Union Arch), where you will have an opportunity to see what c o u r s e s are available, to meet with existing members and to inspect the Detachment a m b u l a n c e .

M e m b e r s h i p is only ÂŁ 1 , and you will easily get that back if you win a prize in one of our many competitions. S o be sure to c o m e and see us.

In particular we are short of people willing to work backstage, no previous experience needed. A c t r e s s e s particularly w e l c o m e .

We have recently acquired a Ford Transit A m b u l a n c e , furnished with the most up-to-date equipment w h i c h is based here at Imperial C o l l e g e and may be found parked beneath the Sherfield building.

O n the behalf of my committee, I w o u l d like to w e l c o m e y o u to IC ... but I won't: you freshers' must be fed up with all these people y o u don't know w e l c o m i n g you to IC. S o all I'll do is just say:'Hi! guys and gals', and tell y o u why y o u s h o u l d join the s n o o k e r c l u b .

CALLING ALL SINOPHILES, A B O U T OUR SOCIETY .... A m o n g the several aims of this society, the noblest has to be to promote cultural exchanges.' Frequently, we are kept pretty busy just by trying to look after the recreational n e e d s of o u r m e m b e r s , w h e t h e r intellectually or physically as in sports. In other words, we are here to create c h a n c e s s o that everyone can c o m e together and have a g o o d time! O u r list of the year's events-agenda runs from the annual ' C h i n e s e N e w Year Celebrations ' and the 'Farewell Patty', to the o n c e in a while sightseeing trips, C h i n e s e film s h o w s and regular B a d m i n t o n practice s e s s i o n s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in readiness for the annual IC - U C (University C o l l e g e ) G a m e s as well as for enjoyment. We lost to U C C S last year, but with the help of y o u new members we will hopefully s h o w those guys a thing or two this year! B y the way, we are I C C S , I hope y o u can work out what U C C S is by now. T h e n there are the weekly L u n c h - t i m e gatherings! T h e s e are opportunities for you to chat with y o u r f r i e n d s (or new friends) over a c u p of after-lunch tea (usually provided), play a game of C h i n e s e c h e s s or even grip to the everpresent committee members to run things better ... We also w e l c o m e any wild s ugges t ion s and construcitve criticism. T her e will also be a wide range of magazines at hand; from the ' M i n g Pao Monthly' to ' C h i n a Reconstruct', and a M a l a y s i a n Literal monthly to a Hong Kong comic.

C O P Y DEADLINE TOMORROW

5:00pm.

Firstly, we are the most popula r recreational club at IC, and we provide the best value for money (membership for one year is only 75p). We are also one of the most s u c c e s s f u l c l u b s (we have w o n the League every s e a s o n , and one of our members has always w o n the annual L o n d o n C o l l e g e s ' C h a m p i o n ships). The final bow at the end of a club production.

Bowling

IC TENPIN BOWLING C L U B T h e IC T e n p i n B o w l i n g C l u b has a membership that extends from the beginner upwards. O u r bowling is based around a trios league every W e d n e s d a y afternoon in t e r m t i m e at t h e C h a r r i n g t o n B o w l Tolworth (host of many national and international tournaments in recent years.) M e m b e r s of the club also s p e n d the occasional Sunday travelling to tournaments at other universities or participating in the U C T B A interuniversities competition. IC provides most of the members of the University of L o n d o n B o w l i n g T e a m , c o n s i s t i n g of up to 15 men and at least 5 ladies. Last season the team did fairly well at this level of competition (the 'A' T e a m w h i c h was c o m p r i s e d of the top 5 bowlers, did exceptionally well). M e m b e r s of the team took many of the individual honours, the L o n d o n team having a high proportion of the better bowlers in the " c o m p e t i t i o n . This year we hope to raise the standard of the team as a whole in order to build on this s u c c e s s . We meet outside the entrance to A e r o E n g (Opposite Beit A r c h w a y ) to catch the club c o a c h at 2.30 on W e d n e s d a y afternoons. B o w l i n g will start on the s e c o n d W e d n e s d a y of term with c a s u a l party bowling, the league s h o u l d start the following week. S o whether you have a 180 average or just bowl for fun IC T e n p i n B o w l i n g C l u b c o u l d be the thing for y o u . If you're interested (or c o u l d get interested) c o m e and see us at our stall at Freshers Fair, or contact me through the internal mail. Brian MacGowan Physics III

T h i s year, we will be organisin g a trip to .go and see B e n s o n and H e d g e s competition. We will also be o r g a n i s i n g trips to go to Bennett's, one of the b i g s n o o k e r s h o p s : we have arranged with them a 10% discount on all p u r c h a s e s . Lastly, we will be giving l e s s o n s in how to play snooker; Lesson 1.: For total beginners, to b e h e l d approx. o n c e a week during term-time. Lesson 2: For those w h o have c o m p l e t e d lesson 1, to be held approx. o n c e a fortnight during term-time. T h e object of these lessons is to improve the standard of s n o o k e r at IC, and to introduce people to a great form of relaxation. T h e s e lessons are o p e n to all members of IC; ie students a n d staff. Y o u do not have to be a m e m b e r of the s nook e r c l u b to attend these l e s s o n s (though you will' have to join if y o u want to use the tables afterwards). T h e s e lessons are free, and tuition will be given by members of the first team and of the committee. Lastly o n c e again, the F r e s h e r s ' tournament will be held within the next fortnight. Notice will be given in F E L I X . See y o u all at the Freshers' fair, I h o p e (Snooker lounge is on the third floor of union).

By now y o u will have read the national press criticisms and c o m p l i m e n t s of the film 'The Bitch'. Having seen the. film twice, I feel that it has never lived up to the expectations that I had when I realised from the publicity that it was the follow-up to 'The Stud'. T h e plot is very weak and the film is reaily a list of events vaguely linked together by the stars. J o a n C o l l i n s s y m b o l i s e s everything about the movie, and as c a n be seen in the photograph of the Rialto, Leicester Square, her name is almost as big as the Bitch logo itself. J o a n doesn't s p e n d a large ammount of time on the screen but of c o u r s e s h e is the B i t c h and the film details her s e d u c t i o n of e v e r y o n e f r o m her chauffeur to the rich and famous. After our first review a month ago many people went to see the film and they were d i s a p p o i n t e d with it. T h e F E L I X team went to the World G a l a Premiere and noticed that even there s o m e seats were empty; word travels fast.

A section of a letter to the President concerning the subjudice rule In the meantime it is important for the Officers and E x e c u t i v e C o m m i t t e e of the U n i o n to appreciate that, theoretically at least, the c a s e is still not c l o s e d . J o h n S h u t t l e w o r t h is quite entitled to p u r s u e his c l a i m for d a m a g e s for so l o n g as the Law S o c i e t y will extend his L e g a l A i d Certificate. If he d o e s so then, in due c o u r s e , a Statement of C l a i m will have to be filed with Defences served by yourselves and the C o l l e g e and the matter eventually set d o w n for T r i a l . This p r o c e s s will take many m o n t h s and the h e a r i n g w o u l d almost certainly n o t t a k e place until well after the e n d of the current a c a d e m i c year. In the m e a n t i me the issues remain s u b j u c i c e . T h i s means, I'm afraid, that the rights and w r o n g s relating to J o h n Shuttleworth's " d i s m i s s a l " s h o u l d not be debated i n t h e U n i o n . Y o u a r e q u i t e entitled to present a report to the U n i o n stating what has h a p p e n e d both in relation to his d i s m i s s a l a n d the s u b s e q u e n t C o u r t P r o c e e d i n g s but y o u are N O T entitled to d i s c u s s in o p e n debate the rights a n d w r o n g s of the c a s e or,

for that matter, report the a r g u m e n t s of either side in F E L I X . Written a n d verbal reports s h o u l d be c o n f i n e d solely to a r e c o r d of what has h a p p e n e d so far. T h e s u b j u d i c e rule, of course, applies equally to other m e m be r s of the U n i o n and, in y o u r c a p a c i t y as President, y o u must rule out of order any attempt to debate the merits of the case and the present Editor of F E L I X s h o u l d carefully vet any articles or letters w h i c h appear in its c o l u m n s . A s I see it, however, there is no reason why e l e c t i o n s s h o u l d not be held for the new Editor of F E L I X unless N o t i c e of A p p e a l is lodged within the next few days. It is quite possible, however, that J o h n Shuttleworth will formally file a N o t i c e of D i s c o n t i n u a n c e of the present act i on. If he d e c i d e s that further C o u r t a c t i o n is a waste of time then he will p r o b a b l y do so as the s u b j u d i c e rule w o u l d no longer apply a n d all parties are quite able to then indulge in a free for all debate.

There's a lot more for students at the sign of the Black llorse

LLOYDS I B A N K


W h y do you need a bank account? As a student, you have a fixed amount of money to live on. Therefore, you need the most efficient means available of handling your money-a bank account. Lloyds Bank, at the sign of the Black Horse, is not only a safe place to keep your money. Once you have a Lloyds Bank account, you have a clear idea of where you stand financially from day to day, an easy means of buying things and paying bills, and a readily available source of expert financial advice, all in the strictest confidence and the friendliest, most helpful way. We give this complete service from the very day you open your account. This booklet explains some of the services Lloyds offers which could be of use to you when you open a current account.

A current account for dayto'day money management

our customers cash withdrawal facilities when they are open-that includes Saturdays. A n increasing number of our branches have Cashpoint outside, which means that customers can use the machine six days a week outside banking hours.

A current account is the most convenient method you will find for dealing with your everyday financial matters. A n d you'll find it really easy to open an account with Lloyds, at any branch. The first thing you get is a cheque book, so that when you pay in your grant cheque or other funds at the start of each term you can draw cash, pay bills and keep track of what you've spent as the term progresses. A n d you'll get regular statements giving an accurate record of every transaction.

Free banking As long as you are a full-time student, we'll look after your account free of charge, provided you stay in credit. A n d it's worth noting that if you arrange an overdraft of up to £50 we'll still nan your account free of bank charges. Although you will, of course, pay interest on the loan.

Cashpoint for cash-fast Cashpoint is a special Lloyds cash dispenser that is available for use in hundreds of our branches throughout Great Britain, including many branches on or near university and college campuses. With your Cashpoint card, issued free to all current account customers, you can draw out cash at the touch of a button-up to £100 a day if your account can stand it. Several department stores in major towns and cities also have Cashpoint, allowing

S i m p l y slip y o u r C a s h p o i n t c a r d i n t o the dispenser, tap o u t y o u r o w n p r i v a t e c o d e n u m b e r , a n d t h e a m o u n t y o u w a n t , u p t o £100 a d a y p r o v i d e d y o u r a c c o u n t c a n s t a n d ir. T h e n y o u r c a r d a n d t h e c a s h a r c returned in under 40 seconds.

The Cheque Card A Cheque Card carries your name, a specimen of your signature and your card number. When you want to pay by cheque for shop purchases, travel tickets, restaurant bills, for instance, or you want to cash a cheque for yourself in a bank branch other than your own, the Cheque Card confirms to the person taking your cheque that Lloyds Bank will honour i t - u p to £50 for any one transaction. It saves you having to carry too much cash. O f course, they're not issued to new customers automatically. Being given one is purely at the discretion of your bank manager. But anyone over 18 can apply for one at the branch where the account is kept.

When you go abroad In the course of your studies or once you start work, you may have the opportunity to go abroad, on business orforpleasure. Lloyds can help by supplying the currency and travellers' cheques you need. A n d if you have a Cheque Card you can use it abroad to cash cheques in banks displaying the Eurocheque symbol.

If you want to save some of your money... ...open a deposit account. Put money in as you like. Take it out when you want it, subject to seven days' notice. We pay interest on your money-you'll find current rates displayed in all our branches.

Standing orders for regular payments With a current account, you can instruct us to pay your regular bills-rent, subscriptions and insurance premiums-by standing order. It relieves you of the need to remember when payments are due and then of making out separate cheques for them. The bank remembers for you and pays them automatically from your account on the correct day for as long as you tell us to do so. So you can forget those embarrassing reminders.

Advice and services You'll find your bank manager's advice really useful before undertaking any new project concerning moneyinsurance, house buying, anything involving a financial committment. It's part of his job to offer advice when consulted and to help you organise your money to the best advantage. From the day you open an account at Lloyds, you'll find your financial affairs running more smoothly. A n d you'll be glad you chose Lloyds because, in the future, we will be able to offer you a wide range of banking services to help you throughout life, from filling in tax returns and arranging all types of insurance, to executorship of your Will.

Come to the sign of the Black Horse now Opening an account at Lloyds couldn't be easier. To simplify it as much as possible, just use the special account opening card attached. Complete the card and take it to any Lloyds branch. They can either make arrangements to open an account for you there, or for an account to be opened at a branch near where you'll actually be studying. (There's likely to be a Lloyds branch very close to your college, or even on the campus.) Then, when you want to bank your grant cheque, or other funds, you'll have an account ready and waiting with no extra formalities to go through. Once you have opened your account, you will be able to call in and have a word with the manager at any time about difficulties which might arise. You'll find he understands the problems that students face, and will be very happy to see you and discuss your needs. A n d he'll soon show you there's a lot more than money at the sign of the Black Horse.
