LUXURIES'

Jo Armitage, President of the City and Guilds Union, spoke against a motion on student grants at last Tuesdays U G M . She said students should accept a decrease in grants. "A student on a full grant must be prepared to do without luxuries. We are fighting against the education cuts. It is impossible to ask for extra money for students." The motion which was proposed by B e r n a r d S m i t h called for a n i m m e d i a t e rea p p r a i s a l of the grants s y s t e m , particularly with reference to L o n d o n . T h e s p e e c h against by J o A r m i t a g e was e n o u g h t o defeat the m o t i o n by s e v e n votes. In a n interview w i t h F E L I X , B e r n a r d S m i t h s a i d , "/ am very surprised that the UGM decided not to support discussion on Student Grants, as we are now in a position where ICU is in favour of freezing the present grant levels. There was no mention of abolishment of the means test as this is already Union policy, and has the support of most (if not all) students at IC. This motion was designed to help promote discussion on student grants and as such had the support of the External Affairs Committee. The present grant level is only acceptable if students do not accept the following principles." M r S m i t h o u t l i n e d his six principles: 1) S t u d e n t s s h o u l d have t w o s q u a r e meals a day. 2) S t u d e n t s s h o u l d be able to Rally The City and Guilds motor c l u b held a s u c c e s s f u l rally o v e r the w e e k e n d .

M O N T Y F. OR A S O N G FOR T H E ENGINEERS Remember this? "Your Honorary Craduands are of an age where their contribution to the,.material progress of society through technology is mainly of the past. "\ a contentious statement from Sir M o n t y Finniston when he made his address to IC for C o m m e m o ration D a y last term. A t that time the eponymous Finniston committee was completing its report o n the state of the engineering profession of today, a weighty project of some two-and-a-half years in its execution. T h e result is a somewhat pessimistic view of the plight of the engineer. T h e report also investigates the lack of appreciation of engineering skills and the lack of technical comprehension in the higher strata of management,

but although it accurately identifies the problems, the answers are not so forthcoming. The underlying idea (which is a sound one) is the integration of business and engineering, as well as the supplementing of education in engineering as a step in the formation of a new public image for the e n g i n e e r . In line with this the Finniston committee also sings the praises of setting up an Engineering Authority as a bulwark against the collages of Britain in manufacturing industry and includes the suggestion that material incentive should be offered to prospective engineers; at university level, a bursary, in addition to scholarships or the usual grants. Emphasis is laid on more practical work and the introduction of more

women to engineering. A proposed cure for one cause of anxiety, the s t a n d a r d of B r i t i s h e n g i n e e r i n g degrees relative to European ones, is the adoption of a new three-tier degree system, in contrast with the present system. All of this invites comparision with t h e s y s t e m at I C . T h e T o t a l Technology course has produced its first graduates, sharing the same aims as the Finniston committee. A m o n g the three- c o n s t i t u e n t colleges, City and Guilds is unique in having their E n g i n e e r i n g B o a r d , interposed between departmental committees and the Central Board of Studies. T h e object of the Engineering Board is to unify the departments and lead to faster, more convenient dealings with the B o a r d of Studies.

Family resemblance between departments plays a large part in its successful operation; at this level it appears practicable, but can it work on a larger scale? Regrettably, the Engineering Authority may turn out to be yet a n o t h e r i n s t i t u t i o n , unadventurous and of little determination. Making notes and asking questions is simple; providing answers, the right answers, is not. It seems ironic that Sir Monty Finniston should have ended his address by o f f e r i n g his c o n g r a t u l a t i o n s t o graduates whose degrees, by virtue of his proposals, might soon be out of date.

The Fencing Club is active on Thursdays from 12:30 to 2:30. The Friday night sessions have been cancelled but in their place there are twice weekly forays to Salle Paul in Pimlico {there is transport). So if you think you need extra lessons come along to the Gym at 5:30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, bringing the usual gear, ie tracksuit and training shoes. Beginners still most welcome. Things are looking quite healthy now with regards to equipment, ever since our generous major claims award and team morale is very high since our victories against Q E C and Ealing College at the end of last term. This term should see sabre and epee more in evidence at matches. Greg Kaye Captain

Sir, In a letter to F E L I X r e g a r d i n g e n t e r t a i n m e n t i n this C o l l e g e , M i c k B e r r y r e f e r r e d to Imperial C o l l e g e F o l k C l u b as c a t e r i n g for " s p e c i a l i s e d g r o u p s " . A s I s p e n d a large p r o p o r t i o n of my time a t t e m p t i n g to convince p e o p l e of the o p p o s i t e I feel that this damaging r e m a r k c a n n o t go u n c h a l l e n g e d . It is p r e c i s e l y this m i s i n f o r m e d o p i n i o n of folk e n t e r t a i n m e n t that is the c a u s e of the death b l o w to s o m a n y c l u b s , p a r t i c u larly i n the L o n d o n a r e a a n d e v e n m o r e s o in colleges. M a n y p e o p l e , s o m e of w h o m a r e m e m b e r s of folk c l u b s , have a preconceived i d e a of w h a t c o n s t i t u t e s a folk s o n g . If b y s p e c i a l i s e d , M r B e r r y m e a n s the type of m u s i c a n d artists, I w o u l d like to give h i m a few c o m p a r i s o n s . C o m p a r e if y o u will: G a y a n d T e r r y W o o d s with S a m Stephens and A n n e Lennox-Martin; John Foreman with Dave Burland; N i c Jones with L e s B a r k e r ; or Roaring J e l l y w i t h W a t e r f a l l . A s m o s t of the F E L I X r e a d e r s h i p will m o s t likely be unfamiliar w i t h those n a m e s , I w o u l d like to point out that last t e r m o n e of o u r guest bands, the celebrated Ratliffe S t o u t B a n d , finished off w i t h a m e d l e y of r o c k ' n ' r o l l n u m b e r s , also s e v e r a l of o u r floor singers play far f r o m t r a d i t i o n a l songs. In s h o r t , M r B e r r y , t h e r e is n o specific 'folk music'. I w o u l d also like to d r a w y o u r a t t e n t i o n to t w o t r a d t i o n a l songs o n r e c o r d . T h e first, w h i c h I p e r s o n a l l y t h i n k is the definitive v e r s i o n , is Whiskey In The Jar by T h i n L i z z y a n d s e c o n d l y a ' p u n k ' v e r s i o n of Wild Rover by J e e p . Imperial C o l l e g e F o l k C l u b is also a h e a d of s i m i l a r c l u b s in p r e s e n t i n g different f o r m s of e n t e r t a i n m e n t , o u r next event is a m o r r i s d a n c i n g w o r k s h o p . T h i s m a y fall i n t o s o m e p e o p l e s p r e c o n c e p t i o n of folk, but it is the first time that w e have ever attempted such a venture. Al s o a favourite p e r f o r m e r at this c l u b is L e s B a r k e r , a poet w h o

A career in chartered raccountancy is indeed open ended, but only to those who start it with clarity and determination. It can make you a local or international professional. It can make you a specialist or a generalist. It can make you an adviser, a problem-solver, a troubleshooter or a local community leader. But successful accountants are realists as ^rell as imaginative. They

WIST Why are there so few women studying science subjects? In girls schools the numbers studying science and arts s u b j e c t s are often e q u a l , but the numbers of girls doing science in a mixed school is often much smaller than those doing arts. Also, in further education the proportion of girls doing science to those doing arts is very low. Why is this so? Are girls actually less capable of studying s c i e n c e t h a n b o y s or have they just been conditioned to believe that they are? Is science taught in a 'masculine' way? Where does this sexist bias begin? At home: where boys are often encouraged to do such things as play with m e c c a n o a n d help with baking etc. How much do parents influence their children's choice of subjects at school by telling girls they would never be able Jp get a job if they did s c i e n c e at s c h o o l etc. D o teachers ever discriminate against girls? Is enough careers advice available and is it sexist? We are attempting to write a paper for a conference on 'Science Education For Women' and would appreciate any help. If you feel you can help us answer these questions or have any ideas on the subject please come along to an informal discussion in the ICWA Lounge on Wednesday 30th January at 12:45pm. Other WIST meetings this term include: 6th February, a speaker from the National Campaign for Nursery E d u c a t i o n .

Interview with Dave Derby - by the Editor Dave Derby, the Mirror Dinghy World Champion, flew back to Imperial earlier this month. We managed to obtain a quick interview with Dave after one of his Civil Engineering exams. T h e talk was r e c o r d e d in the E n n i s m o r e a n d after filtering out the pub noises and editing the conversation we ended up with only a few lines Dave started sailing five years ago. His father bought the Mirror Dinghy kit for himself and he started helming while Dave was crew. After six months they swapped over and by the end of the year Dave decided that his father was "too big, too slow and too heavy to be crew so I chucked him out." However, Dave's father went over to Perth to help with the attempt to win the team W o r l d C h a m p i o n s h i p . H e was manager. With them was fourteen year old Chris B i s h o p who was D a v e ' s c r e w . C h r i s started sailing with Dave last summer w h e n they w o n the s o u t h e r n a r e a championships. While they were in Australia the team took part in two championships. T h e Australian championship week was first and Dave sailed two races a day for three days. The overseas competitors competed in the event but they couldn't actually win the Australian title but competed instead for the Australian International trophy which Dave won.

/ did my bit for Britain In the second week there was racing alternately in the morning and in the afternoon. We had three races in the mornings when we had light winds and three races in the afternoon with strong winds. We were lucky enough to win the race and the first five points races practice and by the time we came to the last points race we had already won the championon the ship. Due to over indulgence Thursday night we only managed to come third in the last one.

W h i l e he was w i n n i n g the M i r r o r Dinghy World Championship, Dave explained that he had to ration his time in Australia. He carefully balanced the pleasures of meeting the local girls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sheilas that were magnetically attracted towards him. Dave explained that he tried not to over exert himself as he didn't want to detrimentally affect his chances in the world championship. "I just kept the ' British flag flying - I did my bit for Britain.". The conversation moved on to discussing the more interesting side of Dave's visit to Perth but sadly the background noises in the Ennismore were too loud for us to t r a n s c r i b e the tape r e c o r d i n g at this point. The conversation turned to the Olympics.

There are 63,000 Mirror dinghies being sailed in the world Dave was sponsored by the Rector for ÂŁ500 and he had help transporting his boat from O c e a n Containers Ltd. Even with local sponsorship from his home town of Broadstairs, Dave had to put a lot of money into the venture. "All the money that I earned during the summer working was put towards going to Australia. My relatives chipped in a bit as well." There are over 63,000 Mirror dinghies being sailed in the world, so there are a fair number of people who can compete for places in the championships. " Y o u have to be selected in order to take part. In 1979 we won the UK and European titles and we were chosen along with four other British competitors including the defending world champion Roy Partridge. There were about twenty boats in the World Championship and over eighty in the Australian event."

Dave Derby T h e Moscow Olympics clashed with Dave's finals and so he hadn't considered preparing for the 1980 Olympics. Four years from now the games should be held in Los Angeles and Dave said that there was an 80% chance that he would try to be in the Olympics in 1984. "When you reach Olympic standard you have to compete in many more foreign regattas and it's the expense of taking weeks of time off work and being able to transport yourself, your crew, boat and gear overseas, costs of accommodation when you're there and getting back again. m e e t i n g p e o p l e ( e x c e p t n o t m a n y of y o u s t o p a n d a s k o r tell!).

Dave came sixth in the last World Championships which were held in Europe three years ago. After winning this year Dave has found considerable success at the age of twenty-one.

Y O U R C H A N C E T O I N F L U E N C E W H E R E Y O U LIVE N E X T Y E A R O n the 24th of M a r c h the College is staging a seminar which could have far reaching consequences for the student population at IC. T h e subject of the seminar is accommodation and it will be attended by representatives of interested groups, both from those who provide accommodation and those who live in it. It is in the nature of things that the providers, being a small group with a strong interest in accommodation will be well represented, but what about the other side? What about you? There is some danger that the endemic IC disease of apathy will mean that students will fail to make their opinions known with the result that decisions will be made in ignorance of what your feelings on the subject are a n d which will a d v e r s e l y affect your future accommodation prospects. For example, supposing the College was able to acquire new properties or adapt existing ones, what pattern of requirements should be aimed at? Should the College provide flats, single rooms, doubles, triples, dormitories or what? Should the rents charged in any new schemes be bumped up to include

8

cleaning and other services or would you prefer to be able to chose how you spend your money? Is it worth the College taking on comparatively expensive places close by or would you rather pay less and live in scruffy accommodation miles away from College? O r should the College wash its hands of the whole business and leave you to the tender mercies of the flat-agencies and the Rachmans?

would be something over £20 per week and all within crawling distance of College. If the College were to take these places on and nobody wanted them, it would all be a rather pointless and, of course, very expensive exercise. O n the other hand, if they are not taken on it means that fifty people who could have lived in them will probably end up paying something similar — or more — in a less convenient locality, like Streatham.

Well, no-one really knows the answers to these questions — although the answers to some may seem fairly obvious — but without precise information it is difficult for the College to do a lot to help on account of the risk of providing accommodation that no one wants and ending up having to foot an enormous bill.

This kind of dilemma can only be resolved with the help of certain bits of information, eg: What rent would you pay for somewhere close to College? If, say, you wanted to share a flat with six friends, what would you say to a place with two double bedrooms and one triple? How important is it to you to find somewhere close to College? What sort of place do you want to live in ?

T o give a real example of the dilemma that this lack of information causes, take the case of some flats in Queensgate that have recently been under consideration. T h e flats have very big rooms, all newly decorated with high quality furniture — one flat even has a piano. S o m e of the rooms are the size of 3/4 ordinary single rooms. In a shared room ie double, the rent

With all this sort of thing in mind and with the aforementioned seminar only about eight weeks away, it would seem to be of the greatest importance for information on what y o u want out of the accommodation system and what you are getting out of it already to be collected and made available so that informed decisions can be made which will help to ensure

that IC students are adequately housed. In order to collect this information there is a section of the survey in this edition of F E L I X which deals With accommodation. There will be a photo competition for pictures of your accommodation. Full details are printed elsewhere in FELIX. If no-one shows any interest in this exercise, the College would be quite justified in saying to the Union that since no-one seems to be in the least bit concerned about accommodation, it can't be a problem and thus the College can't be expected to waste its hard pressed resources on providing it.

The action that the College takes will reflect the degree to which you participate in the seminar. If you have any bright ideas about the accommodation problem and the attempts made by the various agencies to solve il perhaps you would like to come up to the Welfare Centre for a cup of coffee and a chat about it.

ROGER STOTESBURY - JUST A SECRETARY? BIG CONFERENCES A N D ELECTION RULES O.K. J U S T A SEC(RETARY) If this article was a forum for my personal views it would have a resoundingly depressive air to it this week. F o r as a sabbatical I have a good idea of what the potential of this Union could be. I am convinced we have the potential to achieve alot more for the wellbeing of us all. College life, including the course content and presentation, is by no means perfect and it could just be that if you cared and took the initiative things might be changed.

3. Objections

O n 9th January a report was published which might have a fundamental effect on your c a r e e r . A s s t u d e n t s of e n g i n e e r i n g it is i m p o r t a n t we c o n c e r n o u r s e l v e s with the F i n n i s t o n R e p o r t . A s a s t u d e n t u n i o n we should concern ourselves with the educational aspects. That is why in M a r c h there will be a major event Education Engineering Following Finniston.

Objections, except those directly relating to the counting procedure (these may be lodged at any time up to the next U G M ) may be lodged at anytime up to the commencement of the count.

Y O U R VIEW O K so many of you read the last Exec News and thought "what a bore!" or "how does that affect me". If that's the case you have only yourself to blame. If you want to see a motion on refectories, accommodation, the social life, your course, etc, why not put it in yourself. motions for the next The deadline for UGM is Tuesday 29th January. They should be handed o r myself in the ICU Office.

CONFERENCE

This Union is proud that it will be staging the most important annual conference of students of science and technology in Europe. F o r a week during Easter 1981, we will be hosts to one h u n d r e d s t u d e n t s . It is not only an occasion to discuss c o m m o n matters relevant to our education or careers, visit industry, sightsee, but also the chance to get to know many new friends. A t a meeting this Thursday 31st January I would like to see thirty first or second years who would like to be involved in the week. T h e meeting is in the S C R and starts at 1:00pm.

D U R E X M A C H I N E A N D RECIPROCAL ARRANGEMENTS Following my piece two weeks ago two points: Girls, there is a machine, of course, in the ladies toilet in the Union Building, but not one in Southside (hopefully there will be soon). Also, thanks to those who have been giving me info concerning our reciprocal arrangements. I will reply to y o u o n the o u t c o m e of my investigations.

NUCLEAR WASTE I was pleased to see at the U G M a motion p r e s e n t e d o n an e n v i r o n m e n t a l issue (the transport of nuclear waste through London). It was decided that the I C U banner should go on a p r o t e s t m a r c h rfiis Saturday. I must applaud the individual who whilst saying he was in favour of nukes also said that we must eradicate the unnecessary safety risks involved. If you feel the same way join me at Beit Arch on Saturday at 11:00.

ADVENTURE

PLAYGROUND

O n e event of last t e r m ' s E n v i r o n m e n t a l Week was of a practical nature. W e visited an adventure playground in H a c k n e y to begin the job of rebuilding it. Since then I C U has adopted it and a return visit was o r g a n i s e d last w e e k by the Community Action G r o u p . It really was fun. We rigged up a fence to stop the hall getting flooded again and began construction of a rope swing. W e shall be returning on 2nd February. O n the same note, Art club will be joining us on the project by painting murals on the wall with the kids.

ELECTION RULES O n Tuesday's U G M , I presented a motion on election rules. This altered three areas: candidates publicity, media and the appeals procedure. T h e new election rules are:

1. E n f o r c e m e n t The enforcement of these rules shall be in the hands of the Elections Committee, which will consist of the I C U H o n Secretary and C o u n c i l members chosen at random. Subject to the constraint that all candidates are satisfied with the impartiality of the latter. The Committee shall have the power to: 1. Ratify an election. 2. Order that the election procedure be re-run. 3. Disqualify one or more candidates, without reference to a U G M . 2 or 3 above may be order if: a. O n e or more candidate goes beyond the limits given below. b. T h e r e is e v i d e n c e that o n e or m o r e candidate was prohibited or discouraged from using F E L I X , S T O I C , or IC Radio or that submitted material was detrimentally altered by the editorial staff of such media. All Union m e d i a m u s t be e q u a l l y a v a i l a b l e to a l l candidates. c. A candidate does permanent damage to any Union or College area. d. A candidate directly attempts to influence the impartiality of any member of the S e c t i o n Committee or Union staff. e. A c a n d i d a t e e m p l o y s c a m p a i g n t a c t i c s designed to give him/her an unfair advantage over the other candidates. f. T h e election is unconstitutionally run by the Returning Officer. g. All media or newsletter reports or comments on the election do not mention the names of all the candidates standing for a post. A n y decision taken shall require a simple majority of the committee, the chairperson having the casting vote.

2. Limits a. T h e maximum amount which may be spent on a campaign in one session will be decided by th Elections Committee and displayed when papers so up. b. T h e total area of publicity produced must not exceed that of 300 posters and 6 reams of A 4 handouts and must not appear prior to papers down. c. Material produced must be covered by an invoice a n d / o r bill. d. T h e use of S h e r f i e l d facilities must be reported immediately to the H o n Sec a n d or F E U X Editor. e. G u m backed material is not permitted f. C C U newspapers may not be used as media for campaigns in I C U elections. g. T h e insignia of any current union publicity m a y not a p p e a r o n a c a n d i d a t e s e l e c t i o n material.

4. Appeal A n appeal against a decision of the Election Committee can be made only to the I C U Executive of which only the Returning Officer, may sit on the Elections Committee.They shall have the power to uphold or overrule the appeal. In any case the matter may be referred to a U G M according to the wishes of one or more of the candidates.

5. Alteration The alteration of these rules shall be subject to the approval of a two thirds majority of a UGM.

6. Interpretation The interpretation of these rules is at the discretion of the Elections Committee.

PG G R O U P CHAIRPERSON I recently learnt that Richard Earl, who held the a b o v e p o s t , w o u l d be leaving C o l l e g e today. H e is hence ineligible to continue as a Union Officer. I am told by the secretary of the P G G r o u p that papers will be going up next week.

Manager,

enjoying a record in his Saturday morning S & M Show. Photo by Jeremy Nunns "Imperial College Radio News at Six, Good Evening"; a familiar sound on 301 metres, but what exactly is I.C.Radio News? Contrary to common belief things do happen at Imperial, quite often important, and I.C.R.N. exists to report on these occurences. What generally happens behind the scenes is: after our reporter obtains the story, for instance from one of the Union offices, it is brought back to the station and written up for that day's bulletins. In addition to our daily news coverage we have a weekly indepth look at what has been happening around College. This programme is called'301 Newsline', and is broadcast between 6.40 and 7pm on Wendesday evenings. In '301 Newsline' we generally find and interview the people responsible for the news, thus bringing out certain aspects of a story that cannot be put over in a news story.

Possibly the key to being able to report on as much as we do and find sufficient news to produce daily bulletins relies on organisation, possibly efficiency, but mainly on something happening.

If you know of something that you

think we might like to know about, then phone us on Internal 3440 or contact the station. The same applies if you want to know more about Imperial College Radio News, or want to join us, as we're always ready to welcome new people.

R E V I E W SI ALBUMS END O F T H E CENTURY — T H E RAMONES Phil Spector meets the cretin hoppers from N e w Y o r k . Y e s , the new Ramones L P is produced by the 'Wall of S o u n d ' man. T h e production is a wall of sound, which suits the Ramones style very well. S i d e o n e c o m m e n c e s with Rock'n'Roll Radio, a s o n g t h a t s i n g s the p r a i s e of predicably enough, rock'n'roll radio as well as T Rex, E d Sullivan, Alan F r e e d etc. Quite good. f"m Affected is more like it, chainsaw rhythm guitar and really ratty vocals from Joey, it's a love song actually, but only the Ramones write love songs that sound like a sawmill at full production! T h e Life On The Road song is next called Danny Says it's a heartfelt moan about not being able to surf in Idaho and the rigours of touring, it's slow but builds up to loud finish. Chinese Rocks next, which is the definitive drug addicts song, good, fast and tacky. The Return Of Jackie And Judy which features Jackie (the punk) and Judy (the runt) who were first observed o n the Ramones first L P , this song is an attempt to gain further mileage out of the original song (Judy Is A Punk) but it doesn't really work in my view and is a bit redundant. T h e last track o n side one is Let's G o which is the Ramones m o a n i n g a b o u t n o t b e i n g a b l e t o g o to Vietnam, a long running theme in the Ramones history. Subject matter aside, it's quite a spiffy little song. B a b y / Love You kicks off side two and it is godawful, to say it's the worst track I've e v e r h e a r d b y t h e R a m o n e s is a n understatement. / Can't Make It On Time salvages things somewhat, sounding like the days of 1976/77, quite nostalgic really. This Ain't Havana is in the same vein and is really good, in fact I half expected a few G a b b a G a b b a H e y s in the chorus but had to settle for " B a - B a - B a n n a n a / T h i s Ain't H a v a n a " but the song is a real pogoer which please me. T h e title song from Rock'n'Roll Highschool is next and starts off with a powerchord and feedback, in the best punk tradition i , and just leaps out of the speakers at about the speed of light, a trully great track. All They Way, even better as it has D e e D e e shouting 1-2-3-4 (or wun-toofree-fore to give it it s ethnic pronunciation), another classic Ramones track that leaves smoke coming out of the speakers, as does the l a s t t r a c k High Risk Insurance another buzzsaw sound song that really zooms along. This is a fairly good Ramones L P , most of the songs are truly dumb with only two and a half really bad songs on it. It seems nothing can stop the Ramones which is fine and I hope they keep the cretins hopping (myself included) until the end of the century.

SINGLES T H E S P E C I A L A K A LIVE EP Thre e out of three for the Specials! T h e live E P that is the Specials latest release captures some of the excitement of seeing (and hearing) the band live. Side one was recorded at the L y c e u m and features T o o Much, Too Young, a song from their L P about avoiding marriage, kids and the like until you're older. This ends a n d a n o l d f a v o u r i t e G u n s Of Navarone completes side one, by the Skatalites (I think) originally it still sounds as fresh as ever. O n side two we have the Skinhead Symphony comprising of L o n g Shot Kick The Bucket, Liquidator and Skinhead Moonstomp. Being o l d e n o u g h to r e m e m b e r that o - o - o l d moonstomping at the turn of the last decade these three songs brought a tear to my eye to hear these old favourites again, performed by the Specials in immaculate style.

LADIES RUGBY T h i s was a return meeting of the two t e a m s a n d t u r n e d o u t to be e v e n closer than the previous one. P la y ed at Harlington in front of a g o o d number of IC supporters and the Nationwide t e l e v i s i o n c a m e r a s , this was a t h o r o u g h l y e n t e r t a i n i n g and a b s o r b i n g match to watch. T h e game was played in a hard but fair spirit and all the ladies put in 110%, w h i c h made all their training worthwhile. T h e glory of the day went to the IC pack. T h e y were superb, winning set s c r u m s , through B a r b a r a and lineouts, through Claire, they were able to give, s c r u m half Fay a g o o d deal of clean p o s s e s s i o n . O n l y a little inexperience in the 3s and s o m e g o o d tackling by U C prevented IC from winning this match. O n c e again, the outstanding aspect of play was the tackling. A l t h o u g h lacking a little in strength and

RUGBY XV vs Kings College: 6—3

A s the s c o r e indicates this was a very c l o s e match and one that IC did Well to win. Right from the start, we knew it was g o i n g to be a hard match, with the forwards having to do a lot of the work. All credit must go to the IC pack for a spirited performance throughout the whole game. T h e y supplied the backs, through Phil Ratcliffe, with a lot of g o o d clean ball and we spent a lot of the first half attacking the K i n g s tryline. D u e to s o m e quick cover work by their back row, we were limited to a single try. T h i s c a m e about from a s c r u m o n the K i n g s 25yd line. T h e ball was won cleanly and fed to me at number ten. I gave a scissors pass to J o h n C h a n d l e r , at inside centre, and he used a sharp piece of acceleration to beat four players and s c o r e a well worked try. In the s e c o n d half with the wind favouring Kings, we spent a g o o d part of the time defending in our own half. D u e to s o m e s o l i d t a c k l i n g a n d coverwork the only s c o r e that K i n g s m a n a g e d was a single penalty kick. T h i s was a hard earned and well deserved victory and continues our unbeaten record this term.

S P O R T FOOTBALL IC 1st XI vs R F H 1st XI: 3-2 Steve Veats made a triumphant return as goalkeeper in the 1st XI on Saturday. M y regular reader (!) will r e c a l l that last t i m e ' H a n d s ' V e a t s played, the team won 5-4 with Veats getting a hat trick . . . for Q M C ! In this game, however, Steve caught everything, and the rest of the team were so surprised that, against their better instinct they won the game! IC's c o n f i d e n c e grew in the o p e n i n g stages as Veats saved a few useful shots. S o m u c h so that a 'Mis Hit' R i c k a r d corner was controlled by Dave D e a n , w h o s e amazing (for a man of his stature) turn so astounded the opposition that he was able to volley IC into a well deserved lead without them hardly realizing it! T h e match was keenly, and cleanly contested throughout. However, the referee was forced to book a R F H player who expressed strong o p i n i o n s when he didn't get a free kick after Hendy's late tackle! H e n d y , w h o had been left out of his c a g e minutes before kick off, was s o o n in the book after another late tackle. Unfortunately, R F H were allowed to e q u a l i s e j u s t b e f o r e h a l f - t i m e , following mass brain seizure in the IC defence. At half-time, we fed H e n d y s o m e raw meat and d e c i d e d on new tactics. We w o u l d start p a s s i n g to e a c h o t h e r instead of to R F H w h o refused to give the ball back! T h e s e tactics brought instant s u c c e s s as Stevenson blasted t h e b a l l h o m e after a g o a l m o u t h scramble. E n c o u r a g e d by being ahead again, IC took control a n d only Rowley's insistance on missing the goal and Rickard's insistance o n passing to their keeper kept the s c o r e at 2-1. T h e n ten m i n u t e s from the e n d , R F H got a crippling equaliser. However, the 1st Xl's new found spirit refused to be d en i ed . T h e result was sealed in the c l o s i n g minutes when Rickard's pass to R F H ' s keeper went astray and finished up in the goal!

A 2nd XI IMPERIAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL REPORT O n a clear cold Wednesday afternoon, the 2nd team took to the football field to handsomely defeat an L S E 2nd XI team by four goals to one. The initial well organised L S E side was overrun gradually by the IC midfield of Kev Buckley, Phil Niccolls and Brian S c a n n e l l . C l i n i c a l finishing by the I C forwards of whom Dave McPhail, driving the ball low on each occasion, scored two goals and Dick Veenman, a low drive and

a volley off a one-two from Phil's mouth, also scoring two goals consolidated our position at half-time to 4-0. In t h e s e c o n d half L S E a p p l i e d pressure w h i c h was relieved chronically by s t u r d y left wing play from A l e d Phillips. However, solid IC defence by Dec McGukin and Giles Brereton and K e n n y S a n s o m - l i k e defensive thrusts from the flanks by Chris Hendy and Jim Beer foiled all the L S E attacks. The game finished at 4-1 win for IC 2nds after L S E scored scored a consolation goal towards the end of the game. Before IC returned to College they dutifully rearranged British Rail Southern region scheduled service by posing as management staff and holding up the train while Ken Buckley relieved himself, the o p e r a t i o n was c o n t r o l l e d by the authoritative voice of G i l e s B r e r e t o n b a c k e d by s u b t l e s h o u t s f r o m Phil Niccolls of "hurry up Kev, you s . . . heap."

2nds vs Kings: 3—1 2nds Survive P s y c h o l o g i c a l Attack Kings 2 d e c i d e d that the only way to beat IC was to make us over confident and when only nine Kings players arrived at Beit A r c h on Saturday, the talk t u r n e d to s c o r e s of 10—0, but at Hariington the K i n g s plan became clear as there were the two 'mining' players and a substitute. IC morale was at a low ebb especially as the side include d the n e w c o m e r s , the h a m s t r i n g - t r o u b l e Merrit, s o m e c h a p called Price and the totally incompatible Knowles, w h o s e pre-match talk of the application of Deep heat to the male organs was classic. T h e 2nds s o o n settled and s o o n noticed the poor offside trap e m p l o y e d by Kings. M a n y time lone centre forward M c P h a i l s h o w e d the f i n i s h i n g that makes him a natural winger. He did however shoot one past a heeper left unprotected by a trap that failed 1-0. IC dominated a superb ball from 'Cyrille' Knowles over an a d v a n c i n g defence allowed Niccoll s to put the ball in with his usual style. 2-0. K i n g s obtained a penalty and Betts saved to heep the score at 2-0 until half-time. In the s e c o n d half, IC swarmed over Kings and from a poor clearance to the edge of the box, Kevin B u c k l e y , the L a u g h i n g Cavalier of the team drove home to make the s c o r e 3-0. But it was now the constant n a g g i n g of M c G u c k i n unsettled the team a n d Kings b o u n d e d the ball in after a low hard c r o s s e l u d e d the bickering Celt. 3-1. B u c k l e y ' s h u m o u r c a l m e d the team down and for the last five minutes they s w a m p e d the opposition, but with no further addition to the score, the g a m e e n d e d with a s c o r e of 3-1 taking the 2nds XI goal tally to 49 for the s e a s o n . The Beau Brummie

IC BILLIARDS AND SNOOKER CLUB T h e C team travelled all the way to R H C a n d w h e n we got there, we fought our way t h r o u g h the hordes of admiring a m a z o n s and Dave Nuttall won yet another match to brilliant stormbringing applause. Alexander C a m e r o n played next and fought off waves of sheer misery to actually win his first game. I p l a y e d next a m i d s t s c e n e s of hysterical admiration at my new hair cut and c a m e out on top (not my hair). Next c a m e the Kelly contribution. • Having had all my previous c o m m e n t s about this c h a p c e n s o r e d and edited, I shall just say that if this is the best Ireland can bring up on potatoes, it's about time they had a famine — he lost. Finally, the great (all hail) G r a h a m C u r t i s p l a y e d last a g a i n s t a c h a p looking like an A f g h a n terrior (or is it terrorist?) who, like a s c e n e straight from Life Of Brian s h o u l d have been happy to get away with crucifixion. S o , we won 4-1 altogether (so the C team are miles above the B team). T h e B team played L S E at h o m e a n d won 3-2 after being 2-0 d o w n . O n W e d n e s d a y last, t h e A t e a m entertained L S E B team at home. T h e y cemented their o p p o n e n t s 4-1. T h i s was not g o o d e n o u g h thanks to a s i c k en i n g defeat of S h a u n A r m s t r o n g who was p r e o c c u p i e d with matters of getting E d w a r d K e n n e d y into IRA S o c . All the others w o n and the role of s t a r s is a s f o l l o w s ( i n o r d e r o f i m p o r t a n c e to t h e w o r l d ) : M a r t i n Proudlove, feeling a bit white, h a m mered his o p p o n e n t (I bet he wishes he c o u l d 'reproduce' his form e l s e where); Geoffrey Keymer, who has in the past s o l d his b o d y to win s n o o k e r matches (especially doubles, eh Alex!) had no trouble beating his talentless p a r t n e r (I m e a n all g o o d s n o o k e r players d o p h y s i c s not e c o n o m i c s ) ; S i r S a n T e e l o c k an understanding a n d whimpering mercenary from the lost country of Malicious, took on a h u g e c h a n g e of form to actually, if feebly, win a match (cor you'll deserve them b l u e s ) ; last w a s t h e l o n e T r i p p , a s n o o k e r player of little importance a n d large expendability — he has his days occasionally, but as a s n o o k e r player, I don't see m u c h h o p e for him. He won ho wev er , with the t r a u m a t i c commitment of a c l e a n s h a v e n A y a tollah. HOCKEY IC L A D I E S

O n W e d n e s d a y 16th J a n u a r y , I C Ladies played a match, rearranged from last term. It was supposed to be at U C ' s ground, but due to frozen pitches, it was played out at Hariington. Owing to a slight error by Fay Hood (ie forgetting the shirts) IC Ladies took the field in spare Guilds Rugby shirts. It was in fact a calculated error, because these shirts t u r n e d out to be m u c h warmer than ours (well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!).

FOR S A L E

E D I T O R I A L

N U S push for large grant increases - I C U votes against discussion .... implying that we are happy with their present level. N o wonder we don't belong to the N U S . Next v;eek Kings College L o n d o n is to hold a referendum o n the question of disaffiliation from the N U S . Those in favour say that the move is the only way to impress on the N U S how unhappy many Colleges are with its performance. The Express described the N U S demand for a 36 per cent G r a n t increase as the action of ignorant louts. After our U G M Imperial students seem to be at the less ignorant end of the Daily Express student spectrum. It seems that the good old Express is getting desperate to try to increase its student circulation. After the way the Express trivialised the Ladies Rugby feature I don't expect it to increase its sales to Imperial students. Tonight o n Sportswide (towards the end of Nationwide B B C 1) the B B C have a chance to give their impression of the Ladies Rugby team. W h e n they filmed the ladies, last Sunday, the

camera team hinted that the film should be shown tonight • I hope that we won't be disappointed.

T h e questionnaire has had to be postponed until next week because, once again, there have been problems with the production of FELIX. I would like to apologise to residents in Beit for depriving them of 'Top of the Pops'. A fault with the FELIX equipment blew one of the main fuses in Beit. Various sheets from Halls and Houses were left behind after the Toga party. Also a pair of ladies gloves and something indescribable were left in the J C R . Please collect from Beit Room 79. I would like to thank Mathew Smith for his help with the production and artwork that we used in last weeks FELIX. Margaret and Jill Dawson also deserve a credit. Jill has been helping devise questions for next weeks survey Colin Palmer (FELIX Editor)

S Q U A S H — E Y E INJURIES Recently there were two accidents to people wearing glasses when they were playing squash. In both cases the accidents were serious enough to require eye operations. The accidents were caused by direct impact of, in the one case the ball and in the other case, the racquet, with the spectacles. If people wish to play squash and have to wear specatacles to do so, they are advised that . S A F E T Y S P E C T A C L E S can be bought which will stand' a high degree of impact. The Safety Director, Dr G Hargreaves can supply any information (Room 305, Sherfield, int tele. 2889).
