•SITUATIONS VACANT: 1 PRESIDENT AND 1 V.R
T o n i g h t will see the climax of
the p a s t w e e k s election campaign for
the p o s t s o f President and VicePresident.
The campaign began last Thursday
evening as the candidates eager
supporters pushed manifestos under
students bedroom doors.
Magically posters appeared in
every available w i n d o w , nook and
cranny on campus.
The weekend proved to be very
busy for the candidates as their
activities included
meeting
students in KUB's, in the Union
and at the bar.
This culminated in Hii6t^nQ&
on Tuesday where each candidate
was given an opportunity to voice
his or her opinions, carefully
read from a prepared script, and
then came the task of answering
student questions for a period
of twenty minutes.
Unfortunately, towards the
end, the questions became rather
pointed, but never-the-less it
was an interesting occasion.

Meal Increases In Hall
| t i c e increases are to be expected soon on all meals in the Hall
Restaurant.
The Catering Office has an agreement with its major food suppliers to
ep price increases down to twice a year only. The present rise takes

K

e increase will on average be about six percent on all meals. It is
a consequence of the recent pay awards to drivers, the rise in the
cost of petrol and diesel fuels, and the extra cost of vegetables as
result of the bad winter. Three quarters of the Cornwall cauliflower
op has been lost, due to the extreme conditions, for example.

Kelly Elections
ne of the elections to the Fellowship of Engineering this year is
the Vice Chancellor of Surrey University, Dr. Kelly.
e Fellowship was envisaged as complementary to the Royal Society to
cvide an independent and authoritative forum of experienced opinion
matters such as the importance of engineering to national prosperi
ty. Membership is by election and is drawn from Chartered Engineers.
Dr. Kelly has expressed the hope that he will be only the first of a
•ruber of senior academics at Surrey to receive the title of "F.Eng."
The University sub post office
opened yesterday, Thursday
March 1st.
The extension to the newly
reopened Wavy Line shop will
provide all the usual facilities
of a sub post office. Mounted in
the wall outside are two 5p
stamp machines and free-standing
outside the office is a pillar

DES Proposais on Student Union Financing
The situation here looks s l i ^ t l y m o r e promising now
that the DES has hinted at its willingness to consider
other proposais.
Thls bas come about largely because
of the effective opposition by NUS and the Committee
of Vice Chancellors and Prircipals which w e have
contributed to. However, just because the DES is
showing its first signs of hГ©sitation doesn't mean
that we relax our pressure.
On the contrary, w e
increase it, and to this effect I am sending a copy o f
the report I wrote on the DES proposais to Mrs. Shirley
Williams.
Remember that if the proposais were implemented in their prГ©sent form it would affect everything
from clubs and societies to bar prices.
Talking of

BAR PRГЋCE INCREASES
'•Vednesday ' 8 Club Committee meeting approved unanimously
(exceptisg one abstention) heavy increases in nearly
ail bar prices (up to 6p. a piat) from next Monday.
There are two factors In these increases :
1) Uany of our suppliers (notably Courage) have put
their prices up.
2) Club Committee declded that the bar should operate
at 40% gross profit to offset an expected net loss
this year.
Prices have been ro\inded up accordin^ly
As non-voting Chalrman, I proposed that only increases
caused by the first factor should bs implemented at
this stage, and that the rest of the increases should
be deferred until there has been a much more open
r^ebate as to what sort of prices students could be
expected to pay and bov this would affect o u r overall
financial opГ©rations.
I proposed thls because I
believe that prices that are too high are not only
morally unjustifiable but are likely to lose us more
money as students stay away in their droves.
T^is
proposai dld not even find a seconder.
However, I believe that Hari appreciates the w i d e spread concern over tbese price increases and Гўoes not
intend to implement them in full as ailowed by Club
Committee.
Nevertheless, you will be paying quite a
bit more for your drinks from next Monday, so y o u M U S T
come along to the EGM of Union Club, called by myself
at the request of ten members, to discuss the bar
price increases.
I hope you will particГ­pate constructively in the debate hearing in mind the w i d e r
implications of holding down bar prices.
To be fair to
Club Committee they are in a dlfficult if not impossible
position with the present financlal structure o f
Union and Club.

Next

Briefly : If you are staying on site and paying rent
you will get most o f it back (approx. ВЈ7),
If y o u are not paying rent you will not be eligible
for anything as your grant is supposed to cover the

The exceptions to this will be those who

1.
First things first.
A 'thank you' to ail who hel|
in any way towards Right to Freedom Week;
to Jatin, Dave
Orren, Vie, Jagdish, Kasser and Smita Lakbanl, not
f o r g e t t i n g the committee itself
Jeff, Nigel^,Sally, H n e
Sandy, Alex, Stage Crew, Nick, Soul Club, Reggae Club jfd
everyone else.
Meanwhile a few questions for us to chew over :
1) With the present system of calculatlng net profit
for the bars, is it not inevitable that they will
show a loss, since an attempt to recoup thls by
raising o u r gross profit will merelv lead to a fall
in turnover as students drink less o r go elsewhere?
2.
Bar Prices.
Some of you may have noticed the reH|nt
bubbub about the proposed increases in prices of beer,]
wine and spirits and an Bztraordinary General Meeting
of Club members has been called for Monday week.
No
doubt there are a lot of conflicting reports flying abВЎ jt,
so I would (together w i t h C h a r l i e ) like to teli you
'
going on.
I
1
2) Does It really matter if we show a net loss on the
bars, as long as we are making it up elsewhere?
3) Should w e not look at ways of making more money from
Union House Amenities (eg. a couple of pool tables
and another fruit machine) to offset "losses" that
the bars might be m a k i n g ?
4) Should the Club subsidlze the Union (as h e r e ) or
vice versa (as at most other student unions whicb
have lower bar prices)?
5) Should the Union take on a greater proportion of
the total salary/wage bill (at present it contributes
about i), and if so, what would happen to the
budgets of clubs and societies ?
6) Is it realistlc to expect a much increased capitaticm
fee in view of the likely attitude of the University
and the possibility of the IВЈS proposais looming
on the horizon?

As far as cutting C l u b ' s expenses is concerned, the

The salarles of staff who worl

In U n i o n House are divided between tbese two, dependit
which one they w o r k for.
Thus, one way of cutting C l i H s

Dear Editor,
I have always believed that freedom, like any other phenomena, has its own limits, and vben one bre^s those
fragile limits of freedom, one stops being a free man to
become an aggressor.
(i (i O f
frar Editor,
Mr Oza need never fear broken bones if he is
half as physically agile as he is politically.
v:ith truly spectacular ease he does a politic
al high trapeze act, succeeding in dovming
Indira Ghandi, Richard Nixon and the South
African government all in one short paragraph.
Well we can all find fault with other countries about which we are pretty ignorant. After
a poke in their eyes seeking a mote(nobody'11
thank you for) we turn on the Amnesty International smokescreen. The beam firmly embedded in
our own eyes,we sit back comfortably patting
ourselves on the back. V/hat wonderful people
we are?.Forgotten are Steve Menheniott, torture
in Northern Ireland, our exploitation of the
third world,virginity tests, black unemploym e n t and a host of other ills right under our
noses.
The Biko inquest was achieved by concerned
South Africans, Watergate by concerned Americans and I have enough faith in the people of
India to know that they can solve their problems in their own way.
Some people dance to make it rain,others throw
bones to heal the sick; Amnesty International
sends telegrams to stop.injustice. I reserve
the right, to remain equally sceptical. An
AfrikaГўner would say "Die beste stuurman staan
aan wal" and a Russian "If everyman faithfully
sweeps the streets in front of his own house
then will the whole street iae clean."
Yours faithfully,

Your criticism in the last two paragraphs of the editorii
of the I6tb February about the "ancient laws and beliefs
trespasses the fragile boundaries of other people's
principles.
Althoti^ I am not a Pakistani, I feel I must answer your
comments, as they come under the headiiig of "editorial"
and not just as an opinion from a reader.
If Islamic nations are choosing to practise their own
laws and orders, what is your objeotion and who are the
outsiders to question? One can say, "This is our ohoiceJ
Love it or leave it." The latter being the better.
Your worries for us on not being able to emerge as a
"modem, oivilised country" under the Islamic laws are
very much appreciated. But if your concept of civilizatioi
ioi
means widespread adultery, broken homes, homosexuality,
alcoholism, grave psychological problems and so forth;
then thanks for your concern, you can have this civilization. We prefer to live in a "barbaric countiy", as yoi
say.
I
I
It is not clear to me what you mean by the word "barbaric
after all. I would like you to ask a question to yourse]
Which is more barbaric? To out off a thief's Via^r^ or to
kill masses of innocent people standing for their ri^ts
in order to protect a traitor like the Shah of Iran for
one more barrel of oil. Perhaps for you it is more
barbaric to flog a drunkard to protect the nation from
alcoholism than to protect a man like Ian Smith, and sell
oil to Bhodesia secretely during the oil sanction period.,
Follow this advice: open your eyes, open yoiir ears, open
your mind, leam, and then give opinions.
Koran says, "Are the ones who loiow equal to the ones \<dio
do not loiow".
Yours sincerly
M. K. Nuslem.
Dear Editor,
Much has been written lately about apathy
in the TMion. Studente, first years especially, do not
eeem to realise that if the amenities they take for
granted are to continue, then people like them must take
an activВ« part in running them. It's no use expecting
the Union and clubs and societies to be run forever by
a dedicated few.- new blood is always needed. Me^be if a
major Thiion society was to disappear, people would
realise just how urgent the situation is.
One such case is the BRS. To put it bluntly, the DBS
will cease trading at the end of the year unless we get
several willing volunteers to take over. This year's
conanittee will all be on industrial year next year, or
will have left for good, and we need new people now to
l e a m the business and to ensujre that there is still a
DRS next year. !Hiis is not an idle threat. If we don't
get new members of staff soon, it will be too late. If
you want to enjoy the benefits of the service, why don't
you do something to help? The SRS is unique to this
university and it wo^]ld be a shame if all the hard work
of the last four years were to be wasted.
ind it is hard work, but we don't expect you to work
for nothing. Members of staff get certain benefits,
t h o u ^ basically we do it because we enjoy it. Why not
come and give xis a hand- you never know you m i ^ t enjoy
it too. If all this has convinced you to get involved,
we'd be pleased to see you any lunchtime- you know where
we are. If it hasn't, don't bother to look for us next
year, we won't be there.
Tours sincerely,
Dave ReeceВ«

In last week's Bare Facts, Mr. Pilbrow
commented upon the new stable doors now being
fitted to the loos in Guildford Court. I have to
admit that this cunning artifice is indeed
designed for the protection of students and
visitors to Guildford Court. The anticipated
hazard is not so much asphyxiation as the
difficulty that would arise if anybody collapsed
whilst in one of the loos,These are small, and it,
would be difficult, if not impossible, to gain
access and rescue anyone taken ill. The only
solution has been to saw the loo doors in half.
The money for this unusual expedient is from a
specially earmarked grant from the University
Grants Committee, which is to be spent on health
and safety measures only, and not later than 31
March 1979.

For those of your readers less well acquaintВ«
than Mr Pilbrow with the Guildford Court
facilities, it may be of interest to know that
both halves of thВ« stable door are normally
locked together. In the event of an emergency, a
special key is required to free the top half;
these keys will be in the possession of the
Warden, Assistant Warden and other responsible
persons.

Dear Sir,
I am a 2nd year PPS student who has to
onunute from Dorking every day in my car. During
he course of last week the gate along the
perimeter road was closed in the mornings,
upposedly to allow the main car parks on the
erimeter road to fili up before the "overflow"
ar park was brought into use later on in the
morning. The gate itself was attended by a
Security Officer who either directed you to a
pace in the perimeter car parks, or, depending
n who you were, allowed you through to park,
resumably, in Senate car park. Annoyed at this
inconvenience I decided to find out exactly what
he rГ©gulations regarding Senate car park and its
se were.
I
(
ГЋ
The policy on the 8th Feb. 1971 (See
Amenities committee minutes) was that it should
provide parking spaces for
a) Heads of department amd certain senior
dministrators.
I
b) Members of the University who are
physically handicapped.
c) Visitors to the University.
(
d) Others ( this includes the Westminster
m k , students Union)
Due to the fact that the car park was
invariably filled with cars from the a,b & d
ategories the rГ©gulations were changed to allow
ore room for visitors parking at Senate.
I
I
So, as from 19th Aprii 1971, the only people
eligible to park in Senate Car park are;
a) The Vice-Chancellor (one vehicle)
b) National Westminster Bank Ltd. (one
ehicle).
c) Disabled drivers duly authorised.
d) Etoctors attending the Health Center.
e) Lay members of University committees
I
f) Visitors on University business by prior
ppointment and in possession of the appropriate •
permit.
These rГ©gulations have not, as far as I am
ware, been amended to allow any member of staff
ho Works in Senate House, (or elsewhere), to
ark in Senate House car park.
Why then were certain members of staff
llowed through the gГўtes on these mornings last
eek when they have no more right to park in
enate car park than I do, or come to that, any
student at Surrey does. To me, this action seems
totally unfair and discriminatory and I would,
herefore, appreciate an explanation as to why
t occurs.

This is not to say that we disa^ree with an

rhen these fonda will be used to try to win independenob

Purthermore, we feel that the aime of SWAPO were not

Ve feel that the present system whereby anyone can

Dear Assorted Multitudes,
Firstly the fund-raising event was in
fulfillment of a General Meeti ng mandate.
Secondly, the event did not raise money for
SWAPO, but was in aid of "The Namibia
Support
Committee Medical Aid Appeal" and it is this
organisation to which the cheque has been made
out. This is the appeal which has been referred
to as the "Welly Boots Appeal" whose aims are
well known to regular G.M. attenders.

Dear Editor,
The question over car parking
facilities is a difficult one and much discussion
has taken place in past and recent committee
meetings. However, one disturbing fact which
emerges from the last amenities meeting was the
amount of 'abuse' which has been directed
personally at the Security staff on campus over
the problem. I would like to point out to
members of the student population (since some
of them are offenders) that such'attacks arc
unjustified since the problem is not the
security staffs responsibility. Please note that
they are only there to attempt to implement
rГ©gulations, and, that the control of car
parking is only one of their many duties.
thanks,
Jim Adams

Dear Editor,
In the four years that I have been at Suirey
I bave seen a drastic decline in the foUovdng areas:
a) The decidue in the Intellectual, physical, and
creativeraaturityand leadership in successive
years sabbatical officiais;
b) The number of candidates for of ficai poste.
This year is no exception because faced vdth havijig
to choose from "the beert of the woret". What about the
reliance of the candidates on their well written and
thoroughly boring speeches ? OOFSГЋ did I say speechee?
I meant essaye. We had to sit anä listen to people
,
literally reading out their essaye. Are they going to
take pre-written answers to the variГјus conmittee meetings that they vnUL have to attend on our behalf? The
answer became apparaГ®t vftien one could see them etruggling
to answer trivial questions freni the floor.
To top it all the Betimäng Officer and bis hench men
Cchairoian) decided "democratically"' (i.e. by themselvee)
that the quesfcicai time was np, just *dien the meeting was
warming up.
Is it really surprisiiig that we have such a pathetic
tumout for the Г©lections? I like many p-2ople I have
talked to, am having seccaid thoughts as to whether I
should vote this time. I will be writton-or, qiiite inoorrectly, as one of the "apathetic".
I wonder if we could -.jitroduce an "APATHUnC FAC?rOR"
or "COEFГЏ:ECIIIГЋT OF KCSGГњST ( C . O . D . ) " as one addition to
all the ballot papers in the future so that all those who
would like to vote but feel that none of the candidaltes
"fits the bill" can put their vote for 'В«C.O.D.". This
will be useful in several ways, only two of Vilich I can
discuss here because of the lack of space (but if anyone
eise is interest ed in developing this as a motion for a
G.M. please see me):
1) We will have a beautiful feedback systВ«n to show
•"¿he popularity of the new3^ elected candidates
and therefore also clearly separate the apathetic
crowd fron the "C.O.D."s.
2). You \iill definГ tely find a drastic increase in
the nunber of peojle that vote and also promote
greater interest in the Union aS a whole
Yours faithfullj'
Jagdish Jethvia.
Dear Sir,
I ain writing to B.F. to express my
feelings on the Hustings which were held this
Tuesday. For the first time, people actually
seemed to be taking an interest in Union Affairs,
and compared to last years event these Hustings
proved in my opinion to be a valuable opportunity
to judge the qualities of prospective candidates.
When the Returning Officer took the step of
closing the meeting he used the term 'extraordinary General Meeting'. This to my mind indicates
that the meeting should have closed with a dГ©mocratie vote to do so, not for the trivial reason
that we 'had run out of time'. The fact that at
least two people in front of me stili wished to
ask questions and that the general atmosphГЁre
still was conducive to further questioning of the
candidates, was irrelevant. The high-handed and*
autocratie closure of the meeting was
undemoncratic. If the reason was 'lack of time',
who dГ©cidГ©s how long, and for what, the student
facilities are to be used. In this case it appears
that the student body does not, and if the amount
of time allocated for the Hustings is limited,
this naturally limits the exposure of the candidates to the students and necessarily the dГ©mocratie right of students in an election.
The hustings should have continues until it
was clear that no more questions were fortheoming
and in a matter as important as the election of
the Union President time should have been the
least important factor.
Yours etc,
Brian Wilkinson.
Sir,
It is emphatically not accepted practice when
outlining voting procedure, as you attempted to do
in your last issue, to print specimen ballot
pitpers hearing the names of the actual candidates.
Under 'Please Note* you indicated the correctly
completed paper of the six shown and advice us noi
to write on it 'specimen': You might also have
mentioned that we need not write '1' against the
name of Andrew Flint should we not wish to.
Yours sincerely,
John Hart.

Dear Sir,
I
In reply to a number of letters referrin
to the procedure of the Hustings: - The procedure
adopted is that of a Union Extraordinary General
meeting and at such a meeting only one item is
under discussion, (here the Hustings). Thus when
this item has been completed the meeting closes.
Regarding the criticism that the dГ©cision to
close Presidential questions was arbitrarily
reached by the Returning Officer and myself, the
timing of the Hustings had been previously agreed
at the General Meeting. The time allocated was
twenty minutes and in fact we extended this to
include two extra questions.
To summarise, I personally am sick of people
who are not Willing to make any effort towards
participating in General Meetings, but are quite
happy to sit back and criticise these dГ©cisions
after the event, as these gentlemen obviously
want to do,
Yours faithfully,
Chris Bard (Union Chairman)
The Returning Officer replies;
Dear Editor,
To answer Mr. Wilkinson first. It w?s very
gratifying to see so many students actively
interested in the Elections (the first two days'
voting figures bear this out).
This interest
was borne out by the quality of the written
questions submitted in advance and by the early
verbal questions from the floor. However the
time ailowed for questions had previously been
announced to the G.M. AND HAD BEEN AGREED by
the G.M.- any student could have stood up to
object. As it was, questions to Presidential
candidates had run five minutes over time AND
(more important to my mind) had developed a
worryingly personal, bitchy nature.
I felt that
no further useful questions were fortheoming
and so closed the questioning session.
To answer Mr. Jethwa, the 'dГ©mocratie'
dГ©cision was simply an Implementation of a
policy previously agreed by a G.M.- see my reply
to Mr. Wilkinson above. Was the debate warming
up? Or was it becoming downright abusive and
partisan - a poor refleetion on the previous
standard of questions, and the student body in
general?
Mr. Jethwa speaks of a 'pathetic turnout',
lambasts the candidates for actually making the
effort to prepare an answer (i.e. showing that
they care and are interested) and then considers
that he will be termed 'apathetic* for not
voting - if indeed he does choose not to vote.
WRONG: He will be DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for
failing to vote against the person he might
consider to be the 'WORST of the worst'. Does
he mean that he objects to someone showing an
interest in the Students' Union, and showing
a willingness to participate in the interminable
often soul-destroying committee work necessary
to ensure the continued existence of the organisation which provides facilities,for example,
to enable Mr, Jethwa to air his views in print?

nГЎs Mr. Jethwa particlpated in Bare Facts?
I
spent two years on B.F.-often losing the best
part of a night's sleep- because I was
INTERESTED, and thought that the Union was worththe effort.
The candidates in the sabbatical
Г©lections are INTERESTED and WILLING TO SERVE.
- they should be praise. To sum up; as I said
in a G,M.~ if you don't think much o f either
candidate, WHY THE HELL DID ГЏOU NOT STAND
YOURSELF? If you think that you can do a better
job, put yourself forward and see what the
electorate think - donВ»t bitch after the event.
Why abstain as he suggests? You must have
a President - so read the manifestoes and, if
you have not already voted, do so before 3 pm
TODAY.
The best way to express your opinions
is through the ballot box.
To answer Mr. Hart's question: I did not
atteapt, I DID, as requested by the G.M. - let's
be clear on this. I DID this to HELP the
electorate - Charlie and several other members
did not think that some people would be able
to read the instructions printed on the ballot
papers, widely publicised in B,F., G.M.s and
on SHTV, and also clearly visible in the voting
booth, telling them how to vote.
The Order of which names had a '1' placed
against them on the specimen ballot papers was
decided on the toss of a coin - if Mr. Hart can
intercede with the Alraighty/Pate/the Royal Mint,
then I envy hi'm ^ because I can ' t •

Dear Editor,
I am writing this lettor, vftiich I hope will be
publiahed and read by a number of studente ( and staff) at
this university, as a comment en the events at last wedc'-s
General Meeting.
WhKi in my second yeeu? at Svtrrey,! was invblved ia the
Union in many viays, I represented Faculty 1 (Eigineering)
studВ«its on the Senate, and throu^ holding this post I wa^
very involved with the Tuition Fees Campaign and the then
Pees Action CЕ“nmittee. These were good times to woifc in
the Гјnim. People like ShedOa Marsh (the then V^В«), Steve
. Peach (then chainnan), Mary Parsoas and lan Ayres (then
P r e s i d i ) with their capacity for hard worfc, their honesty
I and Гџincerity and, mosfc of ail, their ability to co-operatВ«
with others worfdng around them did much to contribute to
the hannonioue and high-^irited feeling vГЎiioh existed in
I the Union at that-itimeВ» There was coramunicaticm between
I the Unicm Offioals, G,M.s were attended, and things got
' done.
Since then, I bave spent a year in Xndustxy, during
which time I watched throu^ the ì^iges of Bare Fäots (vöien
I received it at ali) the decline in sfcudent interest in
the Union, and in GJl.s in particular, end tUe endless
petty a ^ t i n g between the then new set of Union Offioals,.
I beiieve that the primary cause of the decline in the
I Stxident's Tftiion during this period(l9^/76) was the
I Personality differencses between the varicus Union officiali.
and their inabillty to cooperate and coordinate, as a group
the activities and campaign of the Union, This decline is j
j usually put down to the studente "apathy". What is apathy?
Eh! S u i ^ , 'apathy' is aily in the minds of those vflio are
I anshle 'to attract the attention and interest of the
students, and are locJdjig for an excuse for this failure.
I do not think there is any aich th-ing as "apathy''. There
I is such a thing blb lack of leadership and motivation and
it is this which is responsible for the decline in student
ijГіterest in the T^cm in the last 18 months.
I stood for Union treasurer because I believed läiat Z
could reverse this decline, because of \diat I consider to
be my ability to cooperate with other people. Throughout
my time so far as treasurei;, I have woiked hard and tried
to sort out the mess left bdiind by last years Union
officers. I think I have made much progress, but only
because of my deteminatian and sincerity; obstacles have
been ccotinually jut in d^ way by the lack of enbhusiaan
of other Union officiale. Initiatives and ideas that I
have are usualXy responded to in one of three ways:-
I
I
(i)
mindlese criticdcB or thou^tless condeomscbicn;
(ii) silence and a total lade of enooisrageneitt;
(iii) an attitude .co^urasBlng jealou^, as they see
peopla like me -yhГЎ'Г­lBii&^JlГ­papared to woxk hard and take
riäks as a threat to thieir ovn positions wid réputations.
Ihie ie epitcodeed by what happened last Tuesday, I
put in a hell of a lot of woik in preparing several ccoasti-tutiCBial amendmЕ“ts which would have put the financial
management of this T&iion on a f i m footing aa waa
reccomended hj a Гјnitm finance working party. Kot one Union
officiai showed more than a passing interest in vöaat I was
doing. So, Tuesday came and just ten minutes before the
QJi, I W8B hurriedly tГІld of an amendmoit hy the
that
would wipe out the- principie behind my proposais. Put
yourself in my positions how would ГЏOU feeli I regard the
amendment and the way it was brought as a smack in the '
face and showing a total lack or r e ^ c t towards me and
the hard woifc that I have put intВ© the Union.
• I am sad that the present Union officiale think it
necessary to go behind my back in M i s way, when I am
trying to do my job as best as I can imder the most
difficult of circumstances. Why don't t h ^ tiy to cooperate
for once, and encourage those vГ io want to do smething?
I hqpe to complete n^ term of office as Treasurer, and
to continuГ© the job, vftiich you studente elected me to do,
to the best of my ability. I ask that all students and
Unico officГ©Q.6 consider \Aiat I have said above, and to
encourage anГґ show a little respect towards those students
and union officiala who are conscientious and v4io want to
do a good job, to the benefit of us ali.
Yours sincerГ©ly,
Chris Itorgan.
Dear Ed,
I am sorry that Chris felt I was being defeatist by
referring discussion on some of bis amendments to the
Constitution Working Party. This may have frustrated
the short term need for financlal policy but I feel
the s^t'ing up of two new comaiittees in a Union where
there is dlfficulty fllling present commlttees warrants
discussion, especially among those union officiais
who have a working knowledge of the areas affected.
ttaforvunately, Chris did not present his ideas to
these people whlle working on them but rather presentad
them shortly before being placed on the agenda,
thereby limiV.ng discussion.
Due to Half Tero
activities I was unable to examine closeXy the propos2l.s
until last weekend. I then consulted Union officiais
as I was unsure of the proposais and they confirmed
my feelings. Unfortunately, I did not find Chris to
consult on this until Just before the GU, by which
time I had drawn up my amendment.
Let me say that I welcomed Chris' initiative and
sincerely applaud his hard work and dГ©votion to duty.
Like him I am trying to get this Union back to a strong
and effective position, I was Just unhappy about some
of the implications of the proposais.
It was the
GM who decided to accept my amendment which I see as
being more constructive than a fiat rejection of the
relevant parts..
The Constitution Working Party will be consldering
these amendments seriously and I hope it will produce
the viable and watertight constitution which Chris and the rest of us - wants.
Yours efc.
Nick Helm

Dear Editor,
Lapt Thìjrsday nlgfot at midni^t, ae most
people will probably have diacovered by now, was the
start of the campaigning for oiir hig^ily-esteemed
Presidential and Vice-Presidwitial Г©lections.
I got back to my room after midnigiit, opened my door
and tripped over the doormat.
Bat I don't have a doormati
On Eriday moming I flnally got round to looking at
the cause of the damage and discovered a large pile of
paper- 12 sheets high. Considering that thls year there
are only four candidates and that last year, when there
were 6, I received 6, and only 8,mГўnife8tos, this number
seemed pretty excessive.
On further inspection I foxmd:
? identical manifestos from one candidate,
4 identical manifestos from a second candidate,
5 identical manifestos from a third candidate,
and the fourth was conspicuoi;s by its absence.
What I woiQd like to ask is:
1 ) Is the super saturation coverage a deliberate policy,
or a personal attack on me?
2) How much more does it cost to cover site five times
with manifestos, xather than just once?
5) Come in number 4, your time is up.
Yours,

Dear Ed,
Being an avid non-smoker I feel it is about
time someone said a few words to the smokers. I
hope some of them will manage to wade through
this letter.
Consider a few comments.
Everyone knows that smoking ruins ones health
affects social and family life and is addictive.
Up to n o w it is on par w i t h alcoholism. But
smoking goes further, it ruins others health.
1. Non-smokers in a smoke filled room.
2. Unborn babies during pregnancy.
3. Young children are encouraged by adult
actions.
Spitting is disgusting: Why then is smoking
not considered worse? Spitting is normally done
outside or in the toilet. Smoking is done
everywhere, but fag ends and matches are n o t
always washed away
by rain, and how often have
the gents urinais been blocked by spittle? N o t
often. Spitting is said said to be unhygeinic
but a blocked drain isn't very healthy, and some
even smoke while cooking.
How often do people scorn at someone passing
wind, few scorn at someone lighting u p , even
though the smeli o f cigarettes lasts longer than
the smeli produced by nature. M o r e o v e r the
cigarette smeli never passes. The smokers clothes
hands, hair, breath etc. are ail reminders o f
his xmpleasant act. Unfortunately this affects
non-smokers in the same way.
In genreal, smokers appear to have little or
n o regard for the comfort of others, especially
in p u b l i c places such a s cinemas, s h o p s , b u s e s ,
restaurants etc. How many smokers light u p
automatically, take very few drags, then cast
the end to the ground failing to extinguish it?
They can't get much pleasure from this act but
can cause great annoyance as well as fire risk
from the glowing ember.
F i n a l l y , people w i l l say, "What about h i s
rights? Banning smoking will enfringe upon h i s
p e r s o n a l freedcm." It w i l l , but w h a t about my
rights? Smokers have the right to cut their own
throats but they shouldn't have the right t o cut
mine.
I will n o t sign this letter as my m a t e w i l l
think I am getting at him. W e l l , m a y b e I a m ,
and ali others like him.
Mr. Non-Smoker,
Dear Eld,
I would like to raise a sina.11 point of discussion
which, my colleagues and I hope, will provide some thought
to the 'Improvement' of the Itolon buildings. Nay, I am not
•hftiv-t-ng about directional signs to the Union Offices,
(or even to the lower Bar), but about that gruesome ogre o
eveiyday life, tГ®iat terror of the tympanum, that fearful
foe of the fenestra, (etc)
NOISEIIl
Especially, as many will have already goessed, the near
constant screeching of electronic wl^els around T.T. scree
tracks, the hammering of twenty-two plastic footballers
as they gyrate about their shoulders and the swearing and
pummeliog of paranoid pinball-players as that incessant
clicking and ringing fails to give thea their xanteenth
replay.
I would not, however wish for these "items of
enjoyxuent" to be remved al together Г­tom the promises.
No, a sound proof cage arovind them would be fine, or,
more reasonablly, for them to be placed away from the main
enviroment of the Union, next to the Upper Bar perhaps?
I am not askjiig for the immediate resitting of the
machines (or the loss of profit to the respective owners)
but merely for those people who use the Union to consider
if they enjoy shrieking looidly at a frieod net two feet
away, in conversation, and being unable to hear their
reply? If they too find themselves unable to speak properly
in a sui table atmosphГЁre, then I can ask them for their
opinions to be made known in the hope that at least a
'Time Hestriot.ion' of some sorts could be made upon the us
of such machines.
Yours, in silence (far away from the Union)
Roy Cowley.

Rod Argent. MCF281i^
Rod Argent has spent some time of late playing
on other peoples records such as В»variations*
so
this collection of his ovm material is long overdue. The album is a collection of some fine
material instnimentaly with lyrics that stand up
on their own without the music and some of the
beat musicianship possible. Playing on the album
along with Rod Argent on keyboards are Phil
Collins- Drtans,Moris Pert- Percuss ion, Alphonso
Johnson- EasSjGary Moone- Guitar and the albiim was
produced by Robin Lumley. In other words some of
the best popular "Jazz Rock" musicians of this era.
The first track on side one "Home" a semititle
track is about travelling the world yet wishing to
be back where his heart lies. His vocal style on
this track is fairly high pitch yet appealing.
"Silence" the current single is keyboard based,
sounding like a church organ and synthesiser looks
back on a freindship which ia still haunting him,
I'm in the mood is reminessent of Steely Dan in
a jazz orientated song with the percussion in
particular expressing various moods throughout.
There follows a balladic track "Sximmer" with a
soothing atmosphere created with interweaving
piano and acoustic guitar "in milk and honey lands'
The final track on this side is an instrumental
like Brand X which is hardly suprising with
Mrrs. Collins, Pert, and Lumley contributing.
Side ^ o opens with a song with ballad type
lyrics "Tenderness" about the effect it can have
when used at the right moment. The middle of this
an instrumental which is almost a separate pie
There follows "Pastorial Mentioned" which has a '
quiet intro and is about our changes of mood with
the world around us. This song is certainly one o
the most fascinating on the album and the
accoustic guitar from Gary Moone is particulapiv
"P
Pero^slv
based number about a song writers reaction to a
bad review of some of his friendstit ends with a
Sax solo from Jack Lancaster. The penultimate tra
on the album "Smiling" has a spanish flavour a n ^
about memories of his relationships with differen
places. Finally there is an instrumental
recollection which has rhythmic keyboards. The
ending is unusual with an sjiticlimax followed bv
cl^ax.

rise of the H.S.A. at Surrey over recent weeke has
onçted us to question the aijns of this organisation.
Oiîï investigations have revealed that their activities
are bringing about a drastic rГ©duction in the vole
population in this country . We have therefore set up
the Surrey branch of the Vole Liberation Eront affili^ted
to the Eoyal Little Bits of Belgium Yole Protection
Agency.
For you ignorant bastarde who know nothing about
voles , let me e^lain
Voles are email , furry , fun-loving little
creatures who like nothing better than to spend their
time burrowing into soft river-banks , and occasionally
fomicating . However , these harmless rodents are the
innocent victims of the vicious , bloodthirsty foz , the
veiy animal being protected by the so-called "animalliberationist" hunt saboteurs.
The V.L.P. was started during the late 1930"s , and
has been able to boast many illustrioxis members , the
most famous of whom was Winston Churchill (remember
his "V for Voles" ? ). We have an.enthusiastic but non
publicity-seeking membership. Oiu? society makes
frequent trips to the surrounding countiyside, armed only
with boundless goodwill and love of nature.
Our outings often lead to quite deli^tful scenery besida
pictiuresqiie river banks and they are occasionally
climaxed by the sightings of fresh vole-droppings.
The accurate measurements of vole droppings have
uncovered the following dataPACT- over the past six months the number of vole turds
per hectare has pliunmeted by over ^
FACT- over the same period of time the membership of the
H.S.A. has rocketed to record levels.
V.L.F. (and the ELEOBVPA) say this is no mere co-incidence
Our target is to increase vole-turd production to prefi. S.A. levels. Eow? Ve demand1) Г®fo platform for H.S.A.
2) An N.ГЏГЏ.S. motion calling for an end to the repreesion
of voles in S\Е“rey,
Yours,
Peter Lionel Agiarist.
(a pseiidonym)
P.S. Ve are displaying a diverse collection of vole
turds in Charlie's cloth cap until the end of March.

"Eickstarting" is the Г±ame of the all female modern
dance conç>any which perfonned in the Gceat Hall on
Tuesday 27th Pehruaxy. Struggling against bad ligbting,
a temperamental sound system and the starbness of the
hall itself they managed to present a prcg^acme vhich
althou^ not technioally marvellous, contained soine
good ideas and plenty of enttusif ^um.
In the ninely minutes or ao of the performance,
six dances were presented. Two of these were solo works,
one being unaccon5)anied, two were dioets ai^d two were group
Works: all the choreography was fïom within the conçany.
Of the six works the aost interesting and iusnediately
accesible was the final work,"Ke6p Cleai' Of Unpropped
Body". The seemingly aunlesa, nonchalent wanderings of the
dancers to music by Pats Waller at varioxis timea suddenly
gelled into sections of unisГіn dancing which were
eiciting and at times funny, with some beautiiul touches
slipped in uncbtrusively which gave the piece added in
interest. The choreography of this work entirely justified
Virginia Taylor's position as leader of the company,
althou^ some of the other choreography wae promising.

The other dances presented contained some interesting
ideas and good sections, but the performance was patchy
the dancers for ntuch of the time lacking the authority
and orispness that comes with sure technique. Talking
to the dancers after the performance I found that this
heterogene i tywae reflectad in their dance background:
these ranged from three years of formai training at the
Labon School of Movement to lessons taken hare a\d there
with a variety of teachere. Unfortunately this lack of
foundaticn training led to uneveness in the calibre of
the dancing; however, I feel this was offset b;.- the
enthusiasm shown.
Overall, deepite my rГ©servations about the content
of the evening. I cannot help but admire fine people
working with .-o administrative support and little
equipment on prop with the guts to put on an ambitious
dance programe in univereities, achoole, clubs -'nd
many other venues where they are qixite likely to receive
a hostile reception aid what's more without p ^ l I wish
them every succГЁs with their Arts Council grant
application and coming Northern Bigland tour.

Eello, It's fun time again folks.Hopefully abov<
this drivel there are two photographs of well
Known actors. They are of course both in disguise
(otherwise it would be too easy). If you think you
can name both actors then simply put your name and
the answers on ГЎ piece of A4 and drop it into the
BF. box before 2.00pm. Wed. next. As last week,the
winner will be the first person whos correct
answer is pulled out of a hat.
The winner of last weeks compГ©tition was Rob
Williams of 36E Stag Hill Court. Congratulations
Rob, you can pick your tickets up from your local
'friendly' editor (e.g, Simon) from BF. or the
Union at lunch times (except GM. days).
There will be two more compltmentary (free)
tickets to the Odeon given to the lucky winner of
thls weeks compГ©tition. Good luckГ®

AT A TIME when we are debaiing wheiher lo
slav in or get out of NUS, your last Г©dition was
hardly helpful.
1 suppose we might in time get over having our
university moved twenty-four miles north lo
Reading (as in the front-page lead story), but ihe
characteristidy idiotie letter of Tony Greenscein.
Vice-prГ©sident, weifare and Г©ducation (God help
them!)of Brighton Polytechnic.did not go down
well.
His comiTieni that 'university students arc
surely the mosl elitist of al^students' is beneaih
contempi and like therГ©stof his pathetic letter
scarceiy warrants a full reply.
1 would just like to make a couple of points.
Firstly. ail of our normal concerts are open to
the general public, including students from the
FE sector, but this was a televisiГіn programme,
noi a 'social event*. and thc BBC had stipulated
that the tickets should be distributed, free of
charge, to students and staff of the university
only. not suprisingly considering the title *Rock
Goes to College'.
This principie is fully supported by NUS who
helped arrange the series.
^Ucondly. Mr. Greenstein says that he lotally
agréés with what the Stranglers did in this
instance'. The Stranglers made a lot of money
from a cheap publicity stunt (remember the BBC
had already paid them) and slaudered the eniire
student body al the same lime.
If this is what Mr. Greenstein agréés with. ihen
one must begin to question his principies.

Security are fed up with excuses for cars
parked in unauthorised areas.
_
Mr. Jordan, Chief of Security, today appealec
for a little more honesty from car owners when
they are approcahed about parking where they
shouldn't be.
Whilst Security are always Willing to make
exceptions in genuine cases, for example
unloading. However they often wonder which c a ^ s
are the genuine ones as so many people put
forward this excuse for parking in unathorised|
areas such as senate.
Security men, already short- staffed, haveВ»
to ignore their other duties so that they can
continually open gates for students who intendtao
illegally park in the residence areas, and thel^
repeated requests for Cooperation in this area1
are fruitless.
So the message is Help Security and they w B l
have more time to help you; that is, after allj^
why they are there.
The final date for tenders from companies

Editorial
Prior to 1979 the average issue length of
this magazine was approximately 12 pages. Its
content was the basic Bare essentials, Union
Officials about two pages worth, letters another
two pages, notices, adverts, small ads and the
inevitable personals. This meagre assortment was
the composition of Bare Facts until the end of th.
year.
Recently things have drastically altered, for
the better. There has been a positive interest in
the magazine, student feedback has reached an
unprecedented height, this week we received over
20 letters, numerous adverts, notices and an ever
expanding number of personals. Reviews and
articles contiue to pour in, the cartoon comp,
and blackmail corner are proving extremely popular
as are two new features. Poet's Corner and the
Shopping Basket,
This encouraging response enables us to
provide a larger, better, more informed and
relevant magazine.
However at a time when Union Officials are
moaning about the lack of student interest and
involvement, we have been informed that we only
have enought money left in our Union account for
eight page issues until the end of the sximmer
term,'
There are two alternatives; either we receivj
a realistic budget NOW or we revert back to the
smaller, inferior issues which will become
nothing more than a glorified newsletter.
