Insuring a fair deal? The seasonal epidemic of salesman in the IC Halls selling Life Assurance is probably almost over, but for anyone who may still be within the ten day 'cooling-off period, or has not yet been approached, here are a few facts and comments that may effect a cure or provide some immunity. The main reasons put forward for taking out Life Assurance seem to be as an investment and/or to protect any dependants. For most students these ends may be best achieved through separate arrangements such as a building society account plus term insurance for life cover only (this can cost as little as £10-15per yr for £10,000 cover). For a clear analysis of the benefits and disadvantages of life assurance, life insurance and various investment schemes try Money Which (Sept and June 1979, available from the Haldane Library). The magazine does not recommend any type of whole life assurance for anyone, but finds that life assurance linked to a building society scheme and index-linked save-as-you-earn investments are worth considering, depending on your circumstances. If you are approached by a salesman or seek advice from insurance brokers, or insurance company agents, such as accountants, solicitors and estate agents, it is worth remembering that these people may receive a very substantial commission from your policy, depending on the type you choose. On a whole life policy costing £20 a month this could be £144 the first year, £72 the second year and then £6 a year for the next 18 years, whereas on shorterterm policies (where the tax subsidy still applies) commission may be as low as £10. Insurance salesman must also abide by various legal requirements and certain codes of practice drawn up by their trade associations, at risk at losing their agency. The most important of these is their duty to ensure that you understand the long-term nature of such a policy and what will happen if you stop it before the agreed term. The tenday cooling-off period must also be clearly indicated, in writing; this may be done by letter after you have agreed to take on a policy which in effect gives you longer than ten days from the original decision. Other codes of practice require salesmen to call at a reasonable time, or by appointment, to tell you which company or companies they represent, and not to make unfair criticisms of other insurers. If you have already accepted a policy which you are not happy about and feel that you were inadequately informed by the salesman it could still be possible to wriggle out of it without any loss of premiums. The Student Services Office may be able to assist in this For anyone else considering such policies: if in doubf-don't! Sue

CLUBS AND SOCIETIES

ICYHA A n o t h e r week gone and another w e e k e n d trip away from the monotony of College. T h i s time we took to wheels and spent last Saturday and Sunday cycling a r o u n d the Chilterns. W e arrived in small groups d u r i n g Friday evening at Ffenly Y o u t h H o s t e l close to a delightful stretch of the T h a m e s . O n Saturday we cycled west a n d n o r th through woods a n d open h i l l s i d e s a l o n g the r i d g e of the C h i l t e r n s . R e t u r n to the hostel was d o w n a five mile long hill with very little traffic and no sharp bends. This hilll and the flat stretch at the bottom meant the last seven miles were covered in twenty minutes. O n S u n d a y we h e a d e d n o r t h i o W e s t W y c o m b e along one of the many valleys in the area. A t West W y c o m e we w a l k e d up a small hill to a viewpoint and also descended into the hillside in the old chalk workings. W e then made the mistake of following D a v e Marshall to the station at H i g h W y c o m b e . H i s answer to a road closed in the centre of t o w n was to lead us up a very long one in seven hill a n d then straight d o w n again to a point not far from where we started. A s to the future, tonight a group is off to the C o t s w o l d s , in two weeks there is a trip to S n o w d o n i a and on the final w e e k e n d before the b r e a k its the Y o r k s h i r e D a l e s .

Last T h u r s d a y ( N o v 5) at our regular meeting in Southside B a r , the club committee was formed consisting of: C h a i r m a n D ave Kelsall; Secretary Victor Batorijs; Treasurer J o h n Davies; Freshwater C a p t a i n Steve Edlridge; and two auxiliary committee members A n d y C h a p m a n and D ave J o h n s o n . T h e post of S e a C o m m o d o r e remains open. W e now also have a constitution w h i c h is in the process of being submitted. A s for our next outing, this will be o n Saturday, N o v e m b e r 14 (any enquiries ring D a v e Kelsall on int 2594) and hopefully there will be an outing every fortnight from now o n , If y o u want to k n o w more about the club c o m e to Southside B a r at 6:00pm any T h u r s d a y and meet s o m e members.

Yacht S i x t e e n members, mainly beginners, travelled d o w n to L y m i n g t o n for the I C Y a c h t C l u b ' s s e c o n d outing this season. C o n t r a r y to the weather forecast of gales and rain, S a t u r d a y p r o v i d e d surprisingly w a r m , sunny weather a n d a 15knt following wind. S o m e very energetic foredeck w o r k enabled the O O D 3 4 to arrive at our first s c h e d u l e d s t o p — C o w e s , o n ' t h e Isle of Wight—just before the R e d A d m i r a l 37. T h e appearance of a m a n demanding money for mooring c o m b i n e d with the fact that the pubs had closed, prompted a quick decision to sail immediately for G o s p o r t , our port of call for the night. T h e evening was misspent in an elusive pub, the name of which has been washed from our memories by G a l e s Best. W i t h the arrival of S u n d a y morning it was s o o n apparent that the weather and both the skippers had deteriorated. T h e beat back to L y m i n g t o n in 25-35knt winds and poor visibility was very exhilarating and gave the crews of the boats a taste of real sailing. T h e next Y a c h t C l u b meeting will take place in the Botany C o m m o n R o o m at 12:30pm on Thursday. Dave Martin

TM A f t e r half a d o z e n i n t r o d u c t o r y t a l k s o n transcendtal meditation held so far this t e r m at College, a lot of people have had the chance to learn this effortless, p r a c t i c a l mental technique. A few years back there were more than 300 meditators at I C . It would be great to see that number again, because not only does T M rapidly bring many benefits to those who practice it, but people for w h o m it is so natural and effortless to be constantly happly and lively surely have a positive and uplifting effect on everyone a r o u n d them. S o if you'd like to find out more about T M contact Ric M o r g a n (Physics 2) or Oliver K l e y n ( C h e m E n g P G , int 3818).

containing nine sides and imitate an opening lotus flower, as s h o w n in the picture. T h e lotus will blossom over Delhi rising some 35m above the streets, with the outermost leaves turned through 180 degrees to cover nine glazed entrances. T o w e r i n g above will be two layers of concrete leaves enclosing a large circular gathering place.

A l t h o u g h the lotus flower has no particular religious significance for the Baha'i, it has strong associations with Indian culture and was chosen to dictate the building's distinctive shape. A model of the temple was used in w i n d tunnel tests at Imperial College.

inevitable indigestion which grips you after one of V i c t o r M o o n e y ' s delightful dishes. A n y w a y , he handed an envelope to her ladyship and asked her to burn it. L a d y F (obviously in a bit of a flap h a v n g not d o n n e d the n o r m a l s e q u i n e d l e o t a r d of a m a g i c i a n ' s assitant) didn't do what you or I might and catch one corner alight in the candle flame. Instead she thrust the envelope directly above the candle, which caught fire in the middle and burnt rapidly o u t w a r d towards her fingers. B e i n g a smart old coot she then dropped the flaming mass....onto the paper tablecloth. Meanwhile the blindfolded magician was getting a little suspicious as he could smell burning and heard the c l a t t e r i n g of p e o p l e b e a t i n g b a c k the flames.

Rubber reminder M y good friend A r n o l d Scrote, U n i o n dustman and well-known socialite, passed me the f o l l o w i n g m e m o r a n d u m f r o m N i c k M o r t o n ' s bin the other day. It is nice to see office practice extended to debts of honour.

T h e moral of the story? Y o u may be able to t a k e a h o r s e to w a t e r , b u t y o u c a n ' t necessarily teach it new tricks.

Silly; Secretaries

Va Slack 8ook It appears that there's some confusion over exactly what I write about. People seem to think that I make up stories-not so. Every/thing included is b a s e d o n actual events, even if I embroider a little for added effect. Donations still generously received, although in-jokes and other such rubbish will be ritually burnt.

Just good friends L a z y D e p u t y President, B a r n e y M c C a b e , has i s s u e d a c h a l l e n g e to me to give any d o c u m e n t a r y e v i d e n c e t h a t he l i v e d at 1 Wharfedale St. last year. O f course, I should have explained that Barney was not a rent paying resident, merely a freeloading vagrant who always slept there. T h e landlord, no doubt, was unaware of the e x t r a inhabitant. H e c l a i m s t h a t last y e a r he l i v e d in a S t r e a t h a m r o o m in W a v e r t r e e R o a d : true, that is the address w h i c h he shared with R C S U V P P h i l G r e e n s t r e e t a n d f r o m w h e r e he a n d several other people (who were actually living in E a r l s C o u r t ) c l a i m e d ficitious t r a v e l l i n g expenses from their L E A s . O h yes, and if there were five men claiming to live in the S t r e a t h a m r o o m , how c o m e it only has one double bed? M r M c C a b e and C o are obviously very good "friends".

It h as a l w a y s b e e n a c o n s t a n t s o u r c e of amazement to me that secretaries are so willing to lie about the whereabouts of their bosses. T h e Editor assures me that most of College block are either " i n meetings" or "at l u n c h " for ninety-five per cent of their day, if we believe their secretaries. Particularly bad w e r e the h a g s w h o w o r k for R e f e c t o r y M a n a g e r M r M o o n e y and B o o k i n g s Manager M r Schaffner, whose aim w o u l d seem to keep their bosses as rested as possible and be very obstructive to any callers.

A n y w a y a more amusing incident o c c u r r e d the other week when the C h a i r m a n of the O r c h e s t r a t e l e p h o n e d the S i l w o o d P a r k W a r d e n about the annual orchestra weekend at the field station. " H e ' s in a meeting" she was told at first, but after explaining her enquiry the secretary melted: " O h , I'll go and see if he's really at a meeting then".

Baron's Books B a r o n F l o w e r s of Queensgate in the C i t y of W e s t m i n s t e r , R e c t o r of Imperial College (Bri) is indeed a m a n of the w o r l d . W h y only the other day, while browsing through his wellladen bookshelf, I dis c over ed a marvellous book on social sciences entitled " T h e P r o f e s s i o n a l s — A n i n - d e p t h s t u d y of prostitutes, their lives a n d clients". B u t o n t h e s h e l f of h i s wife M a r y , the effervescent first lady of I C , I found a real gem: " H o w to L i v e with a N e u r o t i c H u s b a n d " .

bench and was rushed, bleeding, to the Health Centre. H e r e he remained for three hours and could not remember being very concerned how D r A d d e n b r o k e was putting in his three stitches. H e kept wanting to k n o w whether she was "putting the knots in properly". Still in a state of semi-consciousness he was t a k e n to S t S t e p h e n s H o s p i t a l in the I C ambulance and came a r o u n d on the way. H e was released from hospital at 10:30am the next day. It would have been quite amusing to take him along to the dinner a n y w a y — h e would have been m u c h quieter than usual and could have layed, spark out on the table along with Spanner and bolt.


An American Werewolf in London Cert X Director John Landis Starring David Naughton, Griffin Dunne and Jenny Agutter. Now showing at the Odeon Leicester Square. David and J a c k , two young A m e r i c a n hitchhikers, brave the m o o r s of N o r t h e r n England on the first step of their E u r o p e a n tour, but are a t t a c k e d by a savage animal under the full m o o n . J a c k is killed and D a v i d wakes up three weeks later in a L o n d o n hospital. H e is visited by the undead spirit of his friend w h o tells D a v i d that he will b e c o m e a werewolf in two days time and must kill himself in order to release the undead from limbo and prevent further deaths. N o w all this may s o u n d fairly ridiculous and that is what director J o h n L a n d i s exploits to create a unique and horrific " c o m e d y " film. Being visited by a wise-cracking corpse is enough to m a k e y o u think you've lost your marbles, but turn into a werewolf a n d eat people? N e v e r . W h a t follows is one of the most unusual and technically s o u n d films of recent years. T h e big t r e a t i s , of c o u r s e , t h e t r a n s f o r m a t i o n sequence. This was pre-empted a little in The Howling (which L a n d i s admitted "pissed me off" and "stole our thunder") but L a n d i s ' film is in a c o m p l e t e l y d i f f e r e n t c l a s s , u s i n g t h e transformation as part of and not just the climax of action. Full credit must go to R i c k B a k e r for an amazing two minute sequence in w h i c h bone and s k i n are s t r e t c h e d a n d snapped as D a v i d b e c o m e s a werewolf before y o u r eyes. T h e r e are only mechanical effects

A big hand for David Kessler, or more appropriately for director John Landis and Rick make-up and effects). The film was first shown Baker (who created some extraordinary at the London Film Festival and premiered on Wednesday... .under the full moon. (not special opticals) w h i c h are particularly impressive w h e n D a v i d ' s hand elongates to a paw and a snout bursts forward and sprouts fangs. A d m i t t e d the film has its f a u l t s : the c o m p l e t e d werewolf runs a r o u n d on all fours in a most unconvincing manner (the upright giants in The Howling being more impressive) and for a wolfman movie w h i c h avoids all of the normal cliches, it is sad that the ending is so

appallingly predictable. Nevertheless, I cannot r e m e m b e r a film which actually scared me a n d made me laugh, occasionally at the same time.

Š Citizens Band Cert AA Director Jonathan Demme Starring Paul la Mat, Candy Clark Pulman Now showing at the Paris T h e c o n c e p t of silicon n a r c i s sm e m b r a c e d without question or contradiction. T h e films plural plot, s t r u c t u r e d about twentieth century t e c h n o l o g y , offers t h e o p p o r t u n i t y for a n exploration of individual relationships within a society under stress. Instead the vestige of a promising story crumbles into a m o n o g a m o u s mish-mash. T h e only real hero to emerge f r o m t h i s film is t h e c o r p o r a t e i n d i v i d u a l c e l e b r a t i n g h i s i s o l a t i o n i n a n a c t of ignominious masturbation. T h i s is glory. T h e films s t a c c a t t o , m i n i m a l , o p e n i n g scenes, that promise m u c h that is not fulfilled, are b o u n d together by the d i s e m b o d i e d sensuallity of ' E l e c t r a ' w h o se voice alone is enough to cause the virginal ' W a r l o c k ' to ejaculate amidst his soft focus, soft music fantasies. T h e twist is that E l e c t r a herself is frustrated by her jumbled affairs with Blaine and D e a n , two brothers w h o represent the acceptable opposites of behaviour. Blaine, the rebel d o w n to his open shirt, is eventually given the civic seal of approval for rescuing a

hapless lorry driver, C h r o m e A n g e l , while D e a n is the c o a c h on a school team who c o m p e t e s for the prettiest prize but loses her to Blaine w h o m he finally forgives from the entrenched safety of an A m e r i c a n nuclear family. In fact all t h e c o n f l i c t s a r e e v e n t u a l l y r e s o l v e d w i t h i n a m a n i f e s t a t i o n of t h e A m e r i c a n d r e a m . E v e n C h r o m e A n g e l , who is discovered to be a bigamist, does not cross the bounds of male sexuality within the family and i n s t e a d p r a c t i c e s a f o r m of d u p l i c a t e m o n o g a m y while the technical and physical separation of Blaine a n d E l e c t r a is deified by a C B wedding ceremony. N o contact, no illusion disturbed. Y o u are left with the impression that E l e c t r a is closer to W a r l o c k a n d his lonely masturbation than to her future husband. H o w e v e r , once she is m a r r i e d she is of no more interest to any other character and even W a r l o c k is seen disappearing after the doyen of female sexuality, a prostitute n a m e d D e b b i e and the one w o m a n in this film w h o is allowed, to some extent, to express herself without a man. but even she has a pseudo-husband in C h r o m e A n g e l , who flaunts the d e c a y e d ethos nl male promiscuity. The promise of this film, however, apart from the s c h i z o p h r e n i c interest generated by each character having two names, a n o r m a l a n d a CB h a n d l e , is lost i n a v a p i d r e enactment of ethics given wheels and the anger in loneliness of the characters a n d the d i c h o t o m y of a d u a l p l o t a r e n e v e r fully exploited.

Rag M a g I personally couldn't give two hoots about what happens to the Rag M a g now. I can see that it might have caused offence and as a majority of people agree to banning it, then that's fair enough. I trust now that efforts will be d o u b l e d by those who voted to ban it to recoup the lost money. H o w e v e r , I doubt that this will happen. T h e people who turned out en masse to vote seemed to be the religious groups in College. I d o u b t w h e t h e r m a n y of these people will bother putting in extra time to collect money. This brings me on to the two things w h i c h have really annoyed me over the whole affair. Firstly, the C h a p l a i n c y have deliberately d i s o b e y e d the C o u n c i l m o t i o n ( r e s t r i c t i n g sales of the magazine to IC students) by sending it out to several charities, s u c h as L e p r a (the B r i t i s h L e p r o s y A s s o c i a t i o n ) . W h a t ' s the point in banning it to preserve the so-called "good n a m e " of Imperial College when the C h a p l a i n c y have done their best to spread the w o r d all over the country? These self-righteous prats should have waited until after the U G M before trying to apply external pressures, if it was at all necessary. However they j u m p e d the gun and have c a u s e d m u c h of the damage they claim they were trying to prevent. S e c o n d l y , the proposer of the amended m o t i o n to ban the Rag M a g , Stephen G o u l d e r said "I w o r k e d in a pathology lab over the s u m m e r , w h i c h was next to a spastics home. I certainly don't find spastic jokes funny." W h a t he failed to mention was the reason for his credit in the magazine. H i s c o n t r i b u t i o n : How does a burns victim pick his nose? Out of a catalogue. H e failed to mention that on the other side of the pathology lab was a burns unit. D o I smell a hypocrite?

Links Cup I received the following letter from some of the College members of the L i n k s C l u b . Dear Mark T h e L i n k s ' C u p was taken from the U n i o n Bar last T h u r s d a y evening and a forfeit trail has been set for its return. T h e C u p is not a violate mascot, it is simply a C l u b possession. If we were to c o m p l y with the demands of those who have the C u p , this would set a precedent that any grudge against a club or society could be settled by stealing possessions of that club or society and demanding s u c h forfeits. F o r this reason we must decline the Treasure Trail and ask those who have taken the C u p to arrange for its return. W e invite those who criticise the C l u b to express their views in the pages of F E L I X , but beg that they consider the many members no longer at College who value the C u p greatly and against w h o m they c a n surely hold no personal grudge. Yours sincerely T h e College members of the L i n k s C l u b .

Penthouse Flat V e r y soon after I started asking questions a b o u t the e m p t y p e n t h o u s flats a b o v e Southside (which were formerly o c c u p p i e d by two wardens) the miraculous decision was made to rent them out from J a n u a r y . H o w e v e r , this means that a term's rent has already been lost (amounting to over £2,000) for no good reason. W h y weren't the flats r e a d y for use in O c t o b e r ? It s e e m s t h a t F a l m o u t h / K e o g h W a r d e n D r Paul Jowitt is b e i n g p a r t i c u l a r l y g r e e d y in d e m a n d i n g a bigger flat, supposedly because of his family (but, more likely I think, because he wants a flat as big as D r H u t c h i n s o n ' s , the T i z a r d / Selkirk Warden). N o t only this, but his new flat must be redecorated before he moves in, so he is effectively holding on to two penthouse flats.

T h e highlight of Rag W e e k at Primelia College is the celebrated dwile flonking competition. In each r o u n d , each of two contestants tries to f l o n k t h e o t h e r ' s d w i l e b e f o r e h i s o w n is flonked. A s s o o n as the judge decides that there has been a valid flonking, the loser retires a n d the winner stays on to meet a newcomer in a new r o u n d . T h e entire process is repeated over and over until seventeen rounds have been fought. This year there were seven contestants, none of w h o m ever played as many as three consecutive rounds. C r u m b l e , the reigning c h a m p i o n , suffered the humiliation of being the first of all the competitors to have his dwile flonked, although to his credit, he didn't lose a r o u n d thereafter. W h o played whom? Well Bumble and D r u d g e each played a r o u n d with each of the others. A m b l e ' played two rounds with Eager

and one with C r u m b l e . Eager flonked the dwiles of F u m b l e and G r u m b l e . N o w if y o u count up, y o u will see that I've n a m e d the two contestants in sixteen of the rounds. T h e missing r o u n d (which may have involved contestants who had met on another occasion) was played between whom? Solutions, comment, criticism to me at the FELIX Office by Wednesday 1:00pm, please. £5 (donated by Mend-a-Bike) to the correct entry randomly selected at that time. Last Week's Solution 61181 w h i c h , by an astounding coincidence, is the date on w h i c h the puzzle was set.

Last week's hero, W e a t h e r s p o o n , is based on a character in a children's puppet series w h i c h was s h o w n on television when I was about eight years old. ' featured a jolly k i n g / d u k e , a snooty queen/duchess with an equally snooty pet dragon called P o n go, and in the cat-infested basement of their home lived a doddery mad scientist called W e a t h e r s p o o n . C a n anyone remember more about the series (e.g. its title)? I'd love to be reminded.
