REACTION TO THE ZIMBABWE ARTICLE Dear Jan Czernuska I felt I had to correct a few inaccuracies in your article entitled 'Zimbabwe'. I presume you in fact mean ZimbabweRhodesia, but this is a minor mistake, as is calling Bishop Muzorewa's party the VANC, when it is the U A N C and has been for several years. Perhaps a misprint in- t h e marxist publications you so obviously get your information from. Mass murder by Muzorewa and his minions? When and where? The only murderers are Nkomo and Mugabes' bandits, who kill any innocent African unfortunate to be in their way as they rape and rob across the country. F l o o d s of r e f u g e e s into Mocambique? Your sense of direction has gone. If you were on

WHY O N L Y P O L I T I C S ? Dear Sir I feel I must lend my support to Mr Pearson's letter in last week's FELIX. ICU seems to have the policy that IC's reputation for academic excellence will attract students no matter how bad other matters become, hence ICU's bigwigs can get on with what they enjoy: messing around with politics. This seems to be rather far distant from the basic aims of a students' union, which are surely to represent the interests of its members. If external politics are

that border you would see groups of Africans risk death in the minefields to escape starvation and 're-education centres' in Mocambique. And if those were refugee camps we attacked in the front line states, why were those refugees armed and dressed in camouflage? Muzorewa was elected by 60% of the votes cast (in a large percentage poll) and will be the victor in any democratic election as the last one was. He will win because African politics is tribal and the Bishop's tribe is by far the largest. Of course the Patriotic Front want 50% control of the transitional committee, by the time elections come about only one of them would be left to contest it, the one who had been only of minority interest, they should be given only minor attention. How about ICU tackling the food problem? I paid ÂŁ5.50 to go to a freshers' dinner, but I'm sure I could have cooked better myself. How about accommodation? Having attempted to sleep on concrete outside the Sherfield Building while queueing for Lexham Gardens this year, I am not convinced that anybody really wants us to have anywhere to live. As for Frank James: perhaps he should do something useful, rather than writing smart letters

'ILL I N F O R M E D ' C A M B O D I A M O T I O N Dear Sir I am writing to correct the illinformed motion, preposed by John Whitehouse on Cambodia, published in the last Exec News. The view that the Cambodia disaster has been caused by the appalling Pol Pot government is extremely shortsighted. Like any other disaster of this nature it has been caused by prolonged war, instability and violence perpetrated most recently by the nazi-style expansionist aims of Soviet backed Vietnam. The only solution for Cambodia is peace, and this will only come when the Vietnamese invaders are driven back to where they belong. There is every probability that the present puppet regime of Heng Sam Rin in Phnom Phen is just as bad as that of Pol Pot, its blatant disregard for human life being demonstrated by its deliberate expulsion of ethnic Chinese as a result of which half a million have drowned at sea. By recognizing the present regime we would be falling straight into the hands of Vietnamese propaganda. The

recognition issue is totally irrelevant to that of aid, this being conclusively by the statement from Phnom Penh that aid would now be accepted without strings. Furthermore recognizing Heng San Rin would further encourage the V i e t n a m e s e to i n v a d e Thailand, which they already seem to be considering and thus spread famine, tragedy and domination to yet another proud nation. While realizing the urgent need to send aid to Cambodia, we must attack the Vietnamese aggressors with every weapon we have, for their actions, encouraged by the Soviet Union, are no better than those of the Nazis. Thus the government must be encouraged, not only to send food to Cambodia and the refugee camps in Thailand, but also to militarily strengthen T h a i l a n d against invasion a n d to support Cambodian freedom fighters, so that a great nation may rise up and throw off the conqueror and live once again.

Dear S i r I feel sufficiently moved by M e r c h e C l a r k ' s i n n u e n d o in the last letters' c o l u m n of F E L I X to write c o n c e r n i n g the vote o n the 'taking of the banner' at the last ICU Council.

It d o e s n o t t a k e much i m a g i n a t i o n to see that these t w o items of p o l i c y are mutually exclusive, leaving aside a n y d o u b t s as to w h e n exactly a foetus/baby w o u l d be able to survive i n d e p e n d e n t l y of the mother.

MUST FELIX BE TURNED INTO A LITERARY BATTLEGROUND TO REVIVE OLD GROUSES Dear Colin It is tempting to over-react to Shlomo Godsi's letter. It is perhaps more tempting not to write at all - must FELIX be turned into a literary battleground to revive old grouses? The sad fashion in Imperial College Union this term appears to be for many of its most able and dedicated membeis to dissipate their energies fighting each other - to the ultimate detriment of the w h o l e . T h i n g s are r a p i d ly reaching the stage where a portion of any muck slung at one sticks, unless one screams one's innocence as loudly as possible. Instead, I will apologise. No member of IC Union who has made the effort to attend a U G M should EVER feel that the Chairman had deprived him or her of a fair hearing or misjudged the mood of ihe meeting. Inapropriate though I consider this medium for discussion of such technicalities, I would bring to everyone's attention the existence of Procedural Motion 20

(xiii) - 'a challenge to the Chairman's Ruling'. I never heard one on Tuesday 16 October - it is to be hoped that the majority of those attending the U G M on that day felt that I was correct in my treatment of the procedural motions I accepted and the one I rejected. After' all, the act of acceptance by the Chairman merely gives the meeting a chance to decide for itself (definitions of ' d e m o c r a c y ' become twisted when one feels those attending the meeting to be acting 'undemocratically'). Clause nine of the Standing Orders for ICUGMs states that a motion, after being proposed, "shall be open to discussion subject ot Standing Orders." Procedural Motion No. 20 (i) is: that the question now be put'. P r e s u m a b l y this c o n c l u d e s 'discussion' and that was my interpretation (as was my right, and in fact my duty, under Standing Order 28, even though it now appears this was at variance with an addendum to Clause 20 on

P r o c e d u r a l M o t i o n s ) . I quote C l a u s e 10: " A t t h e t e r m i n a t i o n of s u c h d i s c u s s i o n , the p r o p o s e r of the motion or a m e n d m e n t ie C h r i s Fox, has the right of reply, IMMEDIATELY after w h i c h the q u e s t i o n shall be put.

Again, I apologize for the t e c h n i c a l content of this letter, a n d I think it will be a p p r e c i a t e d that, in the midst of this intricate web of detail, the last t h i n g the C h a i r m a n has time to c o n s i d e r is his o w n p e r s o n a l viewpoint. T h i s b r i n g s me to the treatment of this meeting in F E L I X no. 530.

" a n d " m a g n a n i m o u s a s ever" (of a speaker) are hardly consistent with the a i m s of factual a n d a c c u r a t e reporting. O n e expects

to find s u c h personal views in ' o p i n i o n ' articles (with the author's name attached) or in editorials (sadly m i s s i n g from that, a n d previous editions), but this appeared under ' U G M Report'!

MATURITY

FRANK JAMES WE LOVE YOU Dear Colin Yes the controversy continues! I do not accept that C C U s are either tribal' or 'anti-intellectual' and suggest that one reason why no one has bothered to answer these allegations is because they are totally irrelevant. C C U s are groups of supposedly intelligent students and if there is anything wrong with the C C U s , then the fault is inherent in the students and nothing will be achieved by abolishing C C U s . I believe that there are contributing factors:

two

1. IC being entirely science based (in the broadest sense of the word) lacks the enrichment of ideas from students studying more human matters. 2. Due to the fairly high standard of entry to IC it is probable that many students will be accepted as a result of having spent large amounts of time studying at school and who will thus have developed very narrow minds.

6

I suggest that it is a result of these influences that C C U s have developed as they are, almost as an escape from reality. If I may be excused the use of a most distasteful expression I'd like to say that the letter from Steve Hutchings got right up my nose. OK I don't know the facts, but it seems to me that from the tone of his letter he appears to be a power mad prat. Surely a simple and absolutely trivial matter like that can be solved without threats? If not, what hope for the world? I'd like to claim the prize for spotting the deliberate mistake on page four of last week's F E L I X : MONDAY 04 NOVEMBER for the copy deadline! Incidentally, how about a hitchhike competition to see who can get the furthest in one day, anyone interested? I have the pleasure to be lan Hodgson Elec Eng

Dear S i r T h e subject of m y letter is 'maturity'. Maturity is a wonderful thing, it s h o u l d progress at its o w n speed, not t o o fast a n d not t o o slow. There is n o t h i n g in this w o r l d as bori ng as s o m e o n e w h o has 'matured' faster than those a r o u n d him, s o m e o n e w h o is out of place, w h o has matured t o o early in life, i a m twenty-three years o l d , older than the average undergraduat e and I like to think I a m not t o o mature to have a few d r i n k s a n d enjoy myself in a lively a n d exuberant m a n n e r after the

stress built up in a n average hard w o r k i n g week. Mr J a m e s , however, has in m y o p i n i o n lost t o u c h with the average student. H e is t o o o l d a n d boring to take seriously, why d o e s he not realize h o w m u n d a n e his p a t r o n i z i n g attacks o n institutions, w h i c h keep the rest of us sane, are, insitutions he is too estranged to u n d e r s t a n d .

Dear C o l i n In reply to Frank J a m e s ' reply to m y letter about his first o n e (this is getting interesting).

I d i d not a n s w e r his c r i t i c i s m s because I s u b s t a n t i a l l y agreed with them; it was his c o n c l u s i o n s that I thought were w r o n g . Certainly, there are many faults in the C C U s ; but he appears to be c o n f u s i n g n o n intellectual with anti-intellectual. M y c o m m e n t was that the ' n o n intellectual' activities of the C C U s actually h e l p s t u d e n t s to concentrate better o n their 'intellectual' activities ( s u c h a s d r i n k i n g o r a n g e j u i c e ? ) , by p r o v i d i n g a release from the

pressures of work. N o n e of the C C U activities are c o m p u l s o r y , s o if a n individual feels that they do not wish to take part in one, or even any, events then that is their own personal decision. Few, if any, of the C C U s ' faults w o u l d be c o r r e c t e d by a m a l g a m ating t h e m into a single central o r g a n i s a t i o n (ie by a b o l i s h i n g them); further p r o b l e m s w o u l d be created a n d many of their g o o d qualities w o u l d be lost.

worried about failing in decreasing opportunites.

LIFE ON A PRECIPICE So the burly hurly of the Freshers Noshups, the Occupation, the Rag Mag, John Shuttleworth and Nervous Breakdowns has almost abated and the term is now on the wane. Rag Week is nearly on us and after that its Environmental Week, and much much more (I can hardly wait!). Which seems like a good time to do a bit of a review. It is obviously difficult for me to make comparisons as my perspective is very much different this year. But I would like to present one or two slightly contentious observations. Maybe I was spoiled by a good first year last year, maybe my C C U spex saw things differently or maybe this year's freshers aren't so prepared to get involved or are more

VANDALISM

Now just in case somebody still doesn't realise my attitude to this sort of behaviour, I'll explain what happens to people I manage to catch. The Union Disciplinary Committee has the power to make people pay for damage caused, and impose an additional fine, and suspend them from use of all Union facilities including clubs and societies) for an lite length of time, and to refer cases to College Disciplinary Committee. I do a lot of work keeping the Union running, and I take a strong personal dislike to the moronic

This might explain the reluctance of an R C S U G M to convict its President in a trial (unheard of), it might explain the way many Bernard Sunley House residents haven't even put their names on their doors, it might explain the poor numbers of people prepared to help ENTS and the fact that ICU still needs a publicity officer (desperate plug). Please don't take it personally and don't consider this to be in any way recriminatory, or if you are one of the people who has thrown yourself Into the fray don't give up. But do please review your own involvement in what can loosely be described as 'college life'. U G M BLUES I was very disappointed to see the quorum challenged by such a narrow margin at the end of Tuesday's U G M . The fact that there were only six people short ofthe required 300 and that people left immediately before and during the count leads me to believe that the meeting had been quorate during most of the bulk of the discussion.

Y O U HAVE B E E N WARNED!

Some money was stolen from clothes left in the gym changing rooms on Monday evening between 6:15 and 7:15. Anyone who saw anyone going into the gym during this period should contact me as soon as possible. And if I catch the person responsible, I don't think I'll bother wjth the disciplinary procedure; it's easier for me just to mention a name and department to those members of Rugby Club whose money was taken.

It was also unfortunate that the motion concerning the Education Cuts and ICU's involvement in yesterday's Day of Action was not discussed, but I hope that something can be salvalged at the next meeting. I was, however, pleased that the John Shuttleworth claim to the FELIX throne has finally been buried. I will close that issue by saying I resent the time I have spent on it that could have been better used. So.... 1. Keep moving so there's less chance of the muck sticking. 2. Become a Publicity Officer. 3. Beware of the Fox O'Boyle Rag (idiosyncratic) Event - it carries an ICU Public Health warning. Congrats to Colin on his ratification. Bye

CHRISSYPOOS BARS Despite a recent price increase from the brewers, bar prices are being kept down for a while at least. The only way we can maintain these prices is if the bars are well patronised, and our expenses are kept down. This means it is essential to reduce the loss of glasses through breakage and theft; glasses are expensive and each one lost represents a potential rise in prices. So HELP C U T C O S T S , R E T U R N T H O S E POTS!

REVIEWS LP REVIEW JOIN HANDS SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES (POLYDOR) I've been sitting here ten minutes and I still can't think of an original opening sentence. Phew, glad that's over. This album promises much but pre-judging from the tracks given radio-play ('Playground Twist' and 'Icons') would be a mistake. It's not that good. Ranging from the gentle melodic, music-box backed 'Mother* to the violent rage of 'The Lord's Prayer' there is something for every Banshees fan, but It's spread thinly. Whereas their debut LP, 'The Scream', was considered over their first year as a band, 'Join Hands' suffers from being made to order and does not sound as polished and refined. There are echoes of the first work but nothing here to match it. Good points include the Siouxsie vocals and John McKay (who, I'm sure you've heard by now if you're interested, together with drummer Kenny Morris, has done a bunk since these recordings were made)'s raunchy guitar work. These together with 'Playground Twist', an excellent single, although the majority of the r e c o r d - b u y i n g public obviously doesn't agree with me, 'Icons' and 'Mother' make the album worth a listen. But that fourteen minute 'Lord's Prayer' comes back to haunt you. I mean Zzzz boring!

BLUE BABY BLUE by GAY WILD (RCA) Gay was eleven when I first had the pleasure of seeing her. Even then she had big ambitions. Her debut single, 'Blue baby blue' may be an abysmal flop but never mind ... she looks good. It is rare for FELIX reviewers to say, "I'm not reviewing that load o f b u t say it they did. However, they did not spend enough time looking at Gay's publicity photo. Had they realised the energies that fire Gay's wild existence; then the piece of plastic spinning on their turntable would

THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR OLD VIC "In 'The G o v e r n m e n t Inspector' I d e c i d e d to gather into o n e heap everything rotten in R u s s i a as I then saw it. all the injustices w h i c h are perpetrated in those places a n d c i r c u m s t a n c e s w h e r e justice is most required of a m a n ; I d e c i d e d to h o l d u p everything to ridicule at o n c e . " N i c k o l a y G o g o l ' s play ' T h e G o v e r n m e n t Inspector' was s u p p o s e d to be about official c o r r u p t i o n but in the p r o c e s s he reinforces the age o l d p r i n c i p l e of authority being in the eye of the beholder. S m a l l town fiddling is n o t h i n g new these days but the c o m i c premise of authority, or lack of it, c o n t i n u e s to be a p p e a l i n g in this t h o r o u g h l y enjoyable p r o d u c t i o n .

have seemed irrelevant. Gay Wild cannot be captured on a mere single. Wait until RCA release an album. The cover pic will be enough .... forget what's inside. THE STUD

W h e n the officials of a s m a l l country town hear that a government inspector from St Petersburg is to m a k e an incognito a p p e a r a n c e a m o n g s t them, they panic as they realise what he will find. T h e hospital is squalid, the Judge has "been on the bench fifteen years a n d never yet seen a d o c u m e n t he's u n d e r s t o o d " , the s c h o o l is staffed by idiots a n d everyone from the M a y o r d o w n is taking bribes. 1

The worries increase when a y o u n g w e l l d r e s s e d m a n staying at the local inn starts o r d e r i n g e v e r y o n e about. T h e M a y o r a n d officials automatically a s s u m e this to be the Inspector a n d are a n x i o u s to appease h i m . Fortunately for the y o u n g m a n , in reality merely a clerk with d e l u s i o n s of grandeur, he c a t c h e s o n to the true situation before a n y o n e else a n d in a series of marvellous scenes sets about i m p r e s s i n g the a w e d o n l o o k e r s . B o a s t s of k n o w i n g various poets rapidly escalate to visits to the p a l a c e a n d very s o o n he is a c c e p t i n g financial 'loans' from the grovelling t o w n c o u n c i l .

Never d o e s the p e r f o r m a n c e by J o n R i c h a r d s o n of this s n o b b i s h , a u d a c i o u s , preposterous pseudo-Inspector become unbelievable a n d H u g h Sullivan as the greasy, s y c o p h a n t i c M a y o r (with Yorkshire accent, incidently - very Russian!) was also very fine. The b e g i n n i n g of the play must be m e n t i o n e d ; a stage o n wheels rolled out towards the a u d i e n c e with the leading players a b o a r d - a novel idea from this c o n s t a n t l y innovative O l d V i c c o m p a n y . A n d t h r o u g h o u t the play at intervals a spotlighted s y m b o l i c c o a c h , s u s p e n d e d above the stage a n d b e h i n d the b a c k c l o t h , brings the real Inspector towards the town. T h e p r o d u c t i o n of T o b y R o b e r t s o n is witty, pacy and stylish. T h e w h o l e thing fairly rattles al o ng and surely gains from this. 'The G o v e r n m e n t Inspector' is at the O l d V i c o n N o v e m b e r 1, 2 , 3 , 1 6 , 1 7 and D e c e m b e r 5, 6, 17 and 18. I r e c o m m e n d it! J O N FIRTH

FOR P L A C I N G A N Y O R D E R S FOR NEW POWER STATIONS O F A N Y TYPE FOR AT L E A S T S E V E R A L Y E A R S . " (1976) A p p a r e n t l y his p r e d i c t i o n s didn't suit the powerful interests within the nuclear lobby for he didn't remain in the j o b m u c h longer.

Imperial College Union is proud to announce its Environmental Week. This will begin on Thursday 29 November. At 1pm the will will be opened by Mike Burke from Friends of the Earth. At 4:30 the Rector, Lord Flowers, will give a talk on energy and the environment. Later the same day, at 7pm there will be a debate on the motion 'Nuclear Power, the major energy source of the future'. Speaking for the motion are Mr L G Brookes (Atomic Energy Authority) and Dr Goddard (Imperial College). Speaking against are Prof Jeffery (Birkbeck College) and Prof Scorer (Imperial College). As a prelude to the week various articles on environmental issues will be published in FELIX. This week a piece from 'Who Needs Nuclear Energy?' (published by Students Against Nuclear Power) is printed as well as a news story from the Evening News on bottle banks.

C o n s e q u e n t l y , the means of justifying new orders have b e c o m e more r i d i c u l o u s . Firstly they have c l o s e d d o w n a n u m b e r of s m a l l power stations, (which c o u l d have been u s e d for c o m b i n e d heat a n d power development). S e c o n d l y they ( C E G B ) are raising the planning margins from 2 8 % to 35%. (In U S A the p l a n n i n g margins are 15%). Lastly they are p r o p o s i n g r i d i c u l o u s levels of growth in energy d e m a n d . T h e S o u t h e r n S c o t t i s h Electricity B o a r d ( S S E B ) justify the p r o p o s e d T o r n e s s nuclear reactor u s i n g p r e d i c t i o n s of 6% c o m p o u n d growth in energy d e m a n d per a n n u m (based u p o n 1974 figures). T h e total growth in d e m a n d s i n c e these p r e d i c t i o n s were made has turned out to be less t han 1 %. The current overcapacity in the S S E B area is in excess of 7 0 % - what will it be after T o r n e s s is built? Every region in Britain has a c h r o n i c overcapacity of electricity generating plant. T h e c o n s t r u c t i o n of more power stations to fill the f amous non-existent energy g a p is totally u n n e c e s s a r y at the moment.

(Students against N u c l e a r Energy will be o n e of t h e g r o u p s at the E n v i r o n m e n t a l Fair o n W e d n e s d a y 5 D e c e m b e r , al o ng with C E G B , N C B , F O E , etc, etc. A n d o n the next d a y the Rector, D a v i d O w e n , S i r Derek E z r a , Nigel F o r m a n , L o r d T a n p a w a n d M i k e R o b s o n will d i s c u s s the topic ' A n E n e r g y F u t u r e for Britain'.)

BANKING UP YOUR B O T T L E S GOVERNMENT FORECASTS (OVER CAPACITY)

A bank with a difference o p e n e d in L o n d o n today. It's a bottle bank a i m e d at r e c y c l i n g glass.

T h e main argument w h i c h the n u c l e a r industry are u s i n g is that "without a major c o m m i t m e n t to n u c l e a r power we s h a l l all freeze in t h e dark". A n d further - "there is n o viable alternative". T h e next s e c t i o n s h o w s that this is r i d i c u l o u s a n d extremely misleading.

CAVING C L U B T h e d a y of parting arrived (last Friday) a n d , with heavy hearts half of the F e l l o w s h i p of the R u n g (yes, we had ladders, too!) set off from the E y e - S e a for the caves a n d tortures o f t h e K i n g d o m of Wales. T h e journey w a s terrible and a r d u o u s (and boring) but the sturdy vessel Dialavan remained fast a n d firm t h r o u g h o u t . O n a n d on s h e s p e d towards (and then past) o u r destination. With haste (and a map) o u r c o u r s e w a s c o r r e c t e d a n d we reached C r i c k h o w a l l , to be met by a b a n d of o u r fellows w h o h a d set off not l o n g after us. The night was spent o n a dark f o r b i d d i n g hillside, s u r r o u n d e d by m a n y weird a n i m a l s k n o w n as s h e ' b o g o to the natives. D a w n broke (along with o u r shelter) a n d the n o w rested party set off for o u r goal, the caves of F f y n n o n - D d u . We were four parties, entering by two entrances, with o n l y a g u i d e - b o o k to tell us what w e might expect. Despite the early return of o n e u n w o r t h y caver/but fair h e l m s m a n , a n d his guide, the parlies enjoyed c o n s i d e r a b l e s u c c e s s , g o i n g d e e p into O g of F f y n n o n D d u I a n d C w m d w r . N o o n e e n c o u n t e r e d a n y Oras, dwarves or B a l r o g s a n d all returned from their journey hungry but h a p p y with the m e m o r y of the s p l e n d o u r of the caves. (Unfortunately the hoped-for treasure h o a r d was not d i s c o v e r e d either.) T h e night was spent in a well-defined stony keep a n d the following day, w h i l e s o m e o f the fellowship went yet further a n d deeper into O F D (their party lead by R a n g e r s of the mountains), the others e x p l o r e d o l d mines (perhaps from pre- man times) s o m e miles further into the m o u n t a i n s . Myself a n d a stalwart c o m r a d e were l o o k o u t s w h i l e the parties were a b r o a d , a n d , w h e n all were again united, many t a n k a r d s of g o o d ale were e m p t i e d (not least by the first party, having met i m p a s s a b l e white water perils d e e p into F f y n n o n D d u ) a n d finally preparation was made to return home. P r o v i s i o n s were t a k e n o n b o a r d a n d , g u i d e d by g o o d sense a n d a full, bright m o o n , we c a m e at last to the Eye S e a . Here m a n y tearful s u n d e r i n g s o c c u r e d (until the next time) yet all were glad to be home. The Helmsman (guess who?)


FOOTBALL IC 1st vs Goldsmith: 10-2 Phil Brindle returned to the IC first team and scored five goals in our first home league match. This slightly overshadowed the four goals by Dick Veenam, who had been first to complete his hat trick. Ian Stevenson was the other g o a l s c o r e r in this i m p r e s s i v e performance. Martin Curran was especially good in defence and the running of Graham Rickard up front was a distraction Goldsmiths couldn't handle. In all this was an easy victory by a supereior team performance from IC. Team: Betts, Hendy, Reeve, Kenrick, Curran, Clarke, Haralampoos, Stevenson, Rickard, Brindle and Veenam. IC 1sts vs Q M C : 5-4 IC came dangerously close to their first league defeat on Saturday. Having been given a gift penalty, which 'Slinky' Rickard converted. They fell behind and trailed 3-1 at half time. IC equalized early in the second half, with two more goals from Rickard, leading to a tense and keenly contested last half hour. Rickard pushed our noses in front once again. But Q M C hit back immediately. It was looking like a draw until Phil Brindle rose above the Q M C defence to score cleanly with his head in the last minute and dramatically win the match. Team: Veats, Hendy, Reeve, Kenrick,. Caffyn, Clarke, Haralampoos, Donaldson, Rickard, Brindle and Kearny.

FOOTBALL IC 1st XI (5) vs Q M C 1st XI (4) Due to field trips, a 2nd team cup replay and players disappearing to varius parts of the country, the 1st XI had a new look from the previous match, but still achieved their fourth consecutive leaque win. This was despite the efforts of Steve 'I do Catch the Ball Sometimes' Veats being in goal. The first half was forgettable except for a badly taken Rickard penalty ( he allowed the keeper time Rickard penalty (he allowed the keeper time to flinch before the ball hit the net!) and three charitable (to Q M C ) cock-ups by Veats.

At half time the score was Veats 3, IC 1. The second half saw the Brindle-Rickard cooperative in full seing with Rickard scoring three times to make it 4-3. This period saw IC's best football of the game, when they kept the ball away from QMC....And Veats! 'Kanky' Kenrick made a miraculour tackle on the runaway centre toward as he was about t shoot before Veats, assisted this time by his defence, let Q M C equalize in the closing stages. Just as all seemed lost, Rickard crossed so cunningly and accurately that, despite closing his eyes and trying to avoid the ball, Brindle scored the winner. We hope Steve and the goalpost get better soon! Team: Veats, Hendy, Caffyn, Kenrick, Reeve, Clarke, Naralampoos, Donaldson, Kearney, Brindle and Rickard.

CROSS COUNTRY On Wednesday 31 October, the crosscountry club ran in a friendly against University College, out in the rural wilds of Shenley. It was touch and go, whether we would catch the coach from U C Union, and things looked desparate, when Steve Kirk was caught short at Euston, but fortunately for you reading this, we made it! The race got off almost on time, and Straight away the IC 'fab four' of Evan, Cameron, la-Morton, Steve Kirk and Mark Pickard, were well up to the front of the field. Nobody really knew where the course went, so a good sense of direction was needed to get around. Not surprisingly Morton was soon in trouble, being led astray by an LSE runner (?!), and ending up round some chicken shacks. The race went on, and was easily won by Evan (now available in Airfix), followed by Steve in third, Mark in fourth and Ian, well down in eighth. The team result was that we beat UC. The following Saturday, a team ran in the Priory Relays at Reigate. The appearance of Steve Ovett in the programme had a few tongues wagging, but could the presence of an IC team of no-hopes pose a threat to the chances of the mighty southern clubs who were competing in the relay. Well, for all you avid readers of the Beano, the Hornet etc., I'm sorry to say the answer was NO! Posing for the camera, Gary Longhurst,

shot off like a whippet at the start of the first leg, and disappeared over the hill, well up in the first ten. However, on his return, it was a pitiful sight, as the poor lad, eyes blood-shot, staggered into the finish, to collapse in a heap in 30th position. Mark Thwaites on the second leg had the run of his life to pull back four places. Pete H o l d s w o r t h , Nick Watmough, and Dave Barrett, all had encouraging runs, whilst Ian Morton pulled back a few places on the last leg to finish the team in 28th position.

HOCKEY 2nd and 3rd Xl's Hockey Trip to Cambridge IC 2nd vs St Johns 2nd: 0-4 IC 3rd vs St Johns 3rd: 3-3 As dawn broke over London the team members were trudging towards the union lower lounge. By midday someone said everyone was ready and we piled into the coach. Having visited an off licence en route we arrived on time (just in time for some people), despite Phil's best efforts to misdirect us. Ad can be seen from the score the 2nds didn't have a good game. The St Johns players were better organized, played well as a team and dominated all aspects of the game. At half time the score was 3-0, two short corners and a penalty flick, that had cost them about ÂŁ15 in the form of a broken Karachi King Super. The 3rds braved the field with only ten men, but then the opposition only had ten, so that's no reason for the miserable draw. IC were in the lead after two minutes with a superb break away goal from yours truly. St Johns equalized with a goal that should have been disallowed, as it glanced off the keepers chest from a short corner, Tim Mitchel put IC back in the lead again with a great goal from the left wing. St Johns equalized with another scrappy goal half way through the second half, which was followed by some excellent team work resulting in yours truly scoring again. St Johns equalizing as the whistle went. After a disappointing tea, which vanished before half of us looked round, we were southward bound with an occasional stop and an attempt at a singsong, a lack of words rendering of 'One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus' soon ended that. A good time was had by all despite the disappointing results. D Cornwall 21


IC BILLIARDS AND SNOOKER CLUB IC A Team were supposed to play Guys B at home, but ended up playing Q M C , who were supposed to play another team - how about that for organisation. IC won 5-0. Geoff 'Cuddly' Keymer played first and after keying himself up, latched himself on to a comfortable victory. Second on, was Chris Tripp, our new star of IC, who averages a 50 break, once a week and won easily. Dave 'Man at C&A' Grassland only sturggled a win on the balck because "I was bored, my heart wan't in it". So much for the opposition. The last two, Teelock and Proudiove, akin to other famous double acts like Aboot and Costellor or Laurel and Hardy, both won , but how long can it last. A Team: Keymer (Capt), Tripp, Crossland, Proudland, Teelock. The 3 Team were supposed to play Guys A away, but when the opposition saw 'Bilbo' Ledezio doing 100mph reclessly through London, they must have left the country because they were no where to be found and the B team played a composite team from Guys. The claimed It 5-0, but only won 4-1 in

actual fact. Ledezio played first and with exquisite, normal, temper control, won by miles. Tomsk 'four-eyes' Mclelland played like a meagre specimen of excrement and just won by managing to hid a foul .from the freferee. The honourable Steve Jeans (from Wales - so he must be good) won quite easily. Chris Calvert suffering from snookeritisuselessitis played like a wonky television set and just won because his opponent was wonkier. Last on, was Dave 'all aboard the skylark' Nuttall, who for some stupid reason went in off the balck to lose and deserved a good spanking but would have enjoyed it too much. Some people, with an IQ greater than Teelocks highest break, went to the Halloween Party! B Team: Leclezio, Mclelland, Jeans, Calvert and Nuttall. On Wednesday 7 November, A team play Charing Cross at home, while B team play REM away. Garth Vader

TIT-BITS FROM T H E WELFARE C E N T R E

If you would like to claim, contact the housing department at the town hall nearest to your accommodation and they will let you have the appropriate forms to fill in. You can claim a rate rebate at the same time as this adds a few pounds to your claim - even though you probably don't pay rates separately, you can claim because they are included in the rent. If you want to know more about the ins and outs of how rent allowances-are calculated, you can find out from the Welfare Centre. LONDON PROPERTY SERVICES TENANTS A large number of people who enjoyed the hospitality of LPS last year, found that they had substantial deductions from their deposits when t h e y c a m e to l e a v e . S o m e t h i n g of a misunderstanding seems to have arisen between LPS and their tenanats, stemming from the fact that a rather inadequate inventory was given to the tenants at the beginning of their stay while a very detailed search for tears, scratches and, would you believe, fingermarks, was conducted at the end of the year. A possible solution to this problem is to make sure that all marks etc are notified to LPS at the beginning of the year, and if they won't accept it, then a list of these defects should be deposited with say, a bank, so that there is some answer to any allegations that might be brought at the end of this year. If you are a LPS tenant and would like to discuss the best way of safeguarding your deposit, you can always come and see me in the Welfare Centre. • MICHAEL ARTHUR

RENT A L L O W A N C E

Rent allowances are a form of housing subisdy paid by local authorities to impoverished tenants in their boroughs. They are based on the fair rent for the accommodation exclusive of rates and the rental value of the furniture (this means that if your rent is £18 per week only, say £10 of this will be taken into account. Also, if you are getting a grant they knock £8.25 off the rent on the grounds that you can't receive support from two public funds for the same expenditure). After making all these deductions they give you a percentage of what is left. This is not very lucrative in term time but if you are paying during the vacation and can't claim supplementary benefit because you don't want to have to sign on in London every week, it can be very worthwhile because your income is then greatly reduced and so the £8.25 deduction should not apply. Someone who claimed last year got rent allowances totalling over £100 on a rent of £15 per week.

I RECKON THAT WAS BETTER THAN SEX O v e r h e a r d : "I r e c k o n that w a s better than sex." T h e q u o t e refers of c o u r s e to the incredible c u p tie between I mperial C o l l e g e 2 and University C o l l e g e 2/1 (standard U C tactics w h e n faced with s u p e r i o r opposition). T h e g a m e evoked all facets of h u m a n e m o t i o n ; from the height of e u p h o r i a to the abyss of despair. T h e inclement overcast sky; a slight drizzle w h i c h left a fast grassy surface, a u g u r e d a hard g a m e with the p r o m i s e of goals.

S l o w t h i n k i n g at a U C free kick a l l o w e d the U C centre forward ample time to lob A l Betts: one, nil. T h e h a r d r u n n i n g of the Imperial front three; J a m e s Rowley, Dave D e a n a n d Q u e n t i n Merritt reaped its first reward w h e n Imperial were awarded a penalty, the g o a l k e e p e r having been given n o option but to bring d o w n Dave D e a n . T h e penalty w a s t o r p e d o e d by P h i l N i c c o l l s at the goalkeeper's head, w h o by this time h a d dived to o n e side: o n e all. Imperial now p r e s s u r e d the U C defence to resorted to breaking u p Imperial attacks by c r u d e t a c k l i n g w h i c h w a s to set the f o u n d a t i o n for future events.

J a m e s R o w l e y t h r u s t i n g o n the left provided s o m e s e m b l a n c e of an Imperial attack. Imperial fought their way back into the tie and it was as the tide was t u r n i n g that U C began to resort to their earlier vindictive attacks. It w a s after an e x c e pt i o na l ly late and v i c i o u s 'tackle' on Q u e n t i n Merritt'as he threatened the U C goal that the U C centre half w a s sent off.

LSE IV vs IC VI U n l u c k y 13 T o d a y s a w the c o n t i n u i n g c o m e b a c k of IC VI from relative obsurity to the forefront of university s o c c e r . In a highly competitive g a m e IC made an excellent start but f o u n d themselves 2-0 d o w n before Dave T i n k l e r realized he was m a r k i n g the referee, a n u n d e r s t a n a b l e mistake as the ref acted as an L S E twelfth m a n . C o n t i n u i n g pressure unfortunately proved fruitless a n d IC were u n l u c k y to find themselves 7-0 d o w n at halftime. It was at this point that the referee began to s h o w c o n c e r n for his players in view of the keen IC t a c k l i n g . However, IC d i d have a period of c o m p l e t e c o n t r o l from the e n d of the first half to the b e g i n n i n g of the s e c o n d d u r i n g w h i c h they s u c c e s s f u l l y m a n a g e d to eat their oranges. In the s e c o n d half, d u e to reorganization of the defence a n d s o m e inspired attacking football, IC m a n a g e d to keep the final s c o r e d o w n to an u n l u c k y 13-0.

IC started the match very s h a k e l y a n d apart from a few patches w h e n we s h o w e d our true form, w e were unable to s h a k e off this 'nervy' m o d d . T h e match w a s spent c o n t a i n i n g the C h e s h o n t pack, a n d e s p e c i a l l y the back row, w h o created a lot of p r o b l e m s for us. T h e bright spot of the m a t c h was a well w o r k e d a n d well deserved try s c o r e d by Phil Ratcliff, playing o n the w i n g . IC, p l a y i n g s o m e of o u r brightest rugby, m a n a g e d to get within ten y a r d s of the C h e s h o n t line before we were awarded a penalty for a s c r u m a g i n g infringment. A forwards move was called by Steve T o w n s e n d , m a k i n g a w e l c o m e return to the back row. After R i c h a r d ' H o r r o r ' S m a r t had taken the ball to within two yards of the try line, the IC pack set up g o o d ball for Steve D o b n e y (Happy Birthday, Steve) to put Phil over, in the corner. T h e match finished with C h e s h o n t r u n n i n g in four tries and IC p u t i n g in a less than usual performance. ' O n e to learn from lads.' EGB
