6 4 St Catharine's College Society Magazine News of the Society ST CATHARINE'S COLLEGE SOCIETY ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 1990 Minutes of the 62nd Annual General Meeting of the Society held in the Ramsden Room in TCollege on Saturday 29 September he President, Professor C. C. Smith, and 40 members were present. The meeting stood in silence in memory of A. Stephenson, Past President of the Society,and Dr R. W. Gregory, former Fellow and Tutor, who died during the year. Apologies for absence were received from Past Presidents and members: S. C. Aston, P. J. Boizot, A. A. L. Caesar, Sir Irvine Goulding (Past Presidents), The Master, A. F. H. Arnold, W. G. V. Balchin, T. Cook, N. Deacon, J. Haynes, D. E. Keeble, N. Pye, J. R. Shelford, R. Stratford, M. H. Walker, A. W. J. C. Wheeler, P. H. Wolton. 1. Minutes of the previous meeting The Minutes of the 61st Annual General Meeting, as printed in the magazine, were approved and signed. 2. Report on the Honorary Secretary As magazine reports showed, the Society's Branches had been active. The Australian Dinner is to be held in Canberra. Correspondence with the Secretary was mainly changes of address. Some members had asked for addresses of members in their area or in places they were to visit. The list of those who had offered to help with careers advice was now available to Tutors in the Tutorial Office to assist in dealing with enquiries received from members seeking such help. Donations to the Appeal continued and the total sum received was now over 1,100,000. A number of covenants had now expired. The Master intended early in 1991 to write to donors whose covenants had come to an end to encourage any who wished to make fresh covenants. Covenants remained the main form of giving. Give-as-you-earn was less freqently used. A new scheme, Gift Aid, enabling tax to be recovered from single gifts of 600 and over was to start on 1 October The Secretary reminded members of the evening's arrangements. The Chapel Services would be taken by the Rev'd John Mullett as the Chaplain was on holiday. The President explained that the collection would be in aid of a research project at Addenbrooke's Hospital into the early identification of kidney disease in very small children. Last year's collection for Wytham Hall had amounted to a record 227. Mr Barton, the College Manciple, would be the Society's guest at dinner. The meeting adopted the report. 3. Report of the Honorary Treasurer Even if the market value of the Society's investments had been affected by stockmarket problems, the Society's income and expenditure were in good order, the former enhanced by high interest rates on money on deposit, while the costs of the magazine, the principal item of expenditure, had only risen by 2.4%. Thanks were due to the College and to the Bursar in particular for the generous support given to the magazine and to Mr Barton, the Manciple, and the College staff for their help. From the surplus of over 1,300, 836 had been transferred to the Benevolent Fund to bring it up to the agreed figure of 1,050 and a net surplus of 503 was carried forward. The meeting adopted the report and warmly endorsed the expression of thanks to the Bursar and College for supporting the magazine and to the Manciple and College staff for their help. 4. Report of the Editor of the Magazine A large amount of material submitted this year made it necessary either to edit this severely or to have extra pages. This year's 72 page magazine would have cost to print and distribute 600 less if it had been kept to 64 pages. The President told the meeting that the Committee had considered the added length quite justified and were sympathetic to keeping the larger number of pages, if material made it desirable and the extra cost could be met. The suggested next step was for the Treasurer to discuss future costs with the Bursar.

7 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 5 The meeting accepted the report and endorsed the Committee's suggestion for taking the matter further. 5. Report on the Old Members Sports Fund The Treasurer thanked those who had made personal donations to the Fund and the President for taking his place on the Fund's Committee during his leave that year. High interest rates had substantially increased the sum available from the 1985 Appeal. This enabled the Committee both to cover an overspend on last year and increase this year's grants totalling 1,020 and this had been much appreciated. A wide range of sports had been covered - rowing, association football, hockey, athletics, cross country, golf, lacrosse, sailing, squash rackets, badminton, basketball, shooting and competitive horse riding. The meeting thanked Dr Little warmly for presenting the Treasurer's report and for his own work in dealing with application for grants. 6. President and President-Elect The meeting confirmed the election of Mr A. E. Lock (1953) as President for and pre-elected Mr P. B. D. Sutherland (1946) as President for Committee Members The meeting re-elected Mr D V Evans (1953) and Mr C J Speake (1959) and elected Miss E V Ferran (1980), previously co-opted, to serve for 4 years as members of the Committee. 8. Officers, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer The meeting re-elected Mr T G Cook (1940) as Honorary Secretary and Dr D E Keeble (1958) as Honorary Treasurer with gratitude for their continued willingness to serve. The President, on behalf of members, thanked the Editor and the Secretary very warmly for their work for the Society in furthering the Society's aims of linking members with each other and with the College. 9. Benevolent Fund An application had recently been received and was being considered with the possibility, following the decision in 1988 to increase the amount in the Fund, of making a grant of real help. 10. Report on the Sydney Smith Memorial Fund The Fund's aim to give support to junior members' activities reflecting Sydney Smith's own interests had been greatly helped by a very pleasing response to the President's letter. There had been some further response to the magazine report. Over 15,000 had been received. With covenanted payments and recovered tax the gross amount was over 21, Honoraria The meeting agreed the recommendation that 150 be given to the College staff in appreciation of their help to the Society. 12. Date of Next Meeting Saturday 28 September 1991 was confirmed as the date for the next Annual Meeting and dinner. The 1992 meeting and dinner would be held on a Friday. 13. Help for Ex-Prisoners The Committee had sympathetically considered Mr A. F. H. Arnold's detailed proposals to encourage those in custody who might seek to enter higher education. He had already discussed his suggestion of an undergraduate admission with the Senior Tutor and had been informed that such applicants were considered along with others. The Committee had suggested that the views of the Tutors should be sought on the alternative proposal for a term's study at Cambridge. A third proposal had been to give a prize or award to an individual. The Committe thought support for learning resources, eg. library books, might be preferable but found it difficult to see how the Society could help within the purposes set out for it in its present rules. Members of the London Group were known to be sympathetic and this might provide a source of funding and encouragement.

8 6 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 14. Other Business In a detailed statement, of which he had given notice, Mr R. J. S. Edis explained he sought members' views on a possible Society efffort to provide things which would enhance the appearance of the College. As examples he suggested a fountain and perhaps a statue, a bell turret and the planting, once again, of trees outside the main gate. In the longer term, he suggested there might be a major effort by the Society, to which he would give his full support, to help to launch the College into the next century. In the discussion it was noted that support for development was always welcome; it was important to keep members' goodwill. The College needed both to maintain its buildings and to improve facilities, the current refurbishment of the kitchens and an important need to provide an auditorium as examples. Much had been achieved since the 1940s when one member recalled the College as a 'dismal place'. Its appearance clearly mattered to those living and working there. Summing up, the President said that Mr Edis's ideas merited the Society's attention. This could be done by an article in the next magazine outlining the ideas and their cost and seeking members' reactions. Meanwhile, informal discussions would take place within the College to ascertain the Governing Body's views. The meeting closed at 5.55pm. DINING RIGHTS OF NON-RESIDENT MAs Non-resident MAs (i.e. those not living in or near Cambridge) are entitled to dine and to take wine and to bring their spouses at College expense once a quarter when the kitchens are open and subject to availability. They are asked to write to the President about this beforehand giving good notice.

9 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 7 The Society's 62nd Annual Dinner One President proposed the toast of the College, the other President replied and proposed the Society. Coincidence marked our two speakers at the Annual Dinner, for both Professor Colin Smith (Matric. 1947, Fellow 1968) President of the Society, and Dr Peter LeHuray (Matric. 1948, Fellow 1957) President of the College, were also about to retire from full-time University and College Office; clearly some retrospection was in order. Following an excellent dinner Professor Smith welcomed Members and spoke of the Society's happiness in seeing Alfred Maddock back in the gathering after his serious operations. The President spoke too of Michael Weston, Old Member and Britain's Ambassador in Kuwait, in the Society's thoughts and prayers for his safety under siege by the Iraqi forces which had invaded Kuwait. He went on to remind his audience of the contribution made to College life, to the University and to wider scholarship of notable Senior Members. As an undergraduate he had been supervised by H. J. Chaytor, not only Master of the College, but with an honoured place in the development of the study of modern languages in British Universities in general and in Cambridge in particular. He recalled the scholarship and help of Stanley Aston and the inspiration both to Tutors and to successive generations of Caths men of Tom Henn and of Gus Caesar. As a Professorial Fellow he had seen the Fellowship grow with the addition of younger Fellows, men and women of high quality, in whose hands the safe future of the College was assured. Replying for the College, and proposing the toast of the Society, Peter LeHuray recalled from his own undergraduate days the friendliness which marked the College, and to which the Fellows of the time had contributed so much by their concern for their students; an example which has been happily followed since. In his years as a Fellow he too had seen the building up of the Fellowship, seeing as well how the necessary financial base of the College had been strengthened by the wizardry of successive Bursars. The academic distinction which marked the Fellowship could be seen in a number of ways, while involvement in study and participation in a range of activities marked the present student body. There was hardly a sport or other University acitivity in which Caths men and women did not play some part and individually achieve distinction. Corporate activities, whether in games or elsewhere, flourished. He welcomed the support which had been given to the Rugger Club, and then spoke of his own recent part in the College Chapel Choir's successful tour of Poland. The College sought to educate in the broadest sense of the term, and in its efforts the continued support given by the Society was important and welcomed. The number attending on this occasion, a Saturday, was fewer than in 1989, when the Dinner was held on a Friday. For some years the Society has had a rotation of two Saturdays to one Friday, as the latter day was thought to be less popular. If you have any views on this sequence please let the Secretary have them, so that he can bring them before the Committee. The Meeting and Dinner in 1992 will, in any case, be on a Friday, and the 25th September in that year will be convenient to the College. Members attending the dinner were: Andrews, I. M. O.

10 8 St Catharine's College Society Magazine The Society's President-Elect Peter Sutherland was accepted to come up to the College by Tom Henn in 1947 to read Architecture. He had then served for five years during the war, which included service in the Far East in the Royal Devon Yeomanry and the 96th Field Regiment Royal Artillery. Latent illness from the war interrupted his career and it was not until 1955 that he was able to start his own practice as an Architect, having gone on to study at London University and the Royal Academy. Born in 1925, his Father decided to enter him for which ever school won the Ladies Plate, this was Shrewsbury School where he subsequently stroked the first eight. At Caths he also stroked the first eight, the light four into the finals and became Boat Captain and later the first member of the college to be Captain of Leander. He took the first British Crew back to Berlin after the war and also coached the Oxford Olympic eight and the Molesey Olympic four along with many other leading club grand eights. He is Founder and President of the Upper Thames Rowing Club at Henley and past Captain of Maidenhead Rowing Club when he also contested the punting championships. Peter represented the college at fives, ran the Art Exhibitions and served on the May and Cardinals Ball Committees. For over thirty years he rowed for or coached the college crews and for many years they stayed with him and his wife Diane at their home, Bird Place on the banks of the Thames by Henley Bridge where a number of college Henley parties have been held. He was also Chairman and President of the London Group and has served for many years on the main committee of the Society. EDITORIAL Information about members of the Society, such as engagements, marriages, births, deaths and general news for inclusion in the Magazine should be sent to the Editor, St Catharine's College, as early as in the year as possible, please, and not later than the end of May.

13 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 11 The Law and the M.A. Dinner, 23 March 1991 Nine College law graduates took their M.A. degrees in person on 23 March. Millie Brenninkmeyer, having spent a year in the Pennsylvania Law School, is nearing completion of her articles with Withers; Alison Halton is a legal adviser with IBM (UK), specialising in commercial law; Ben Mingay is an executive in the UK Corporate Finance Department of Schroder Wagg; Deborah Race is an assistant solicitor with Andrew & Co., Lincoln, specialising in commercial conveyancing; Deborah Russell is an assistant solicitor with Simmonds Church Smiles, in Holborn, working in their litigation department; Paul Sugars and Nick Teunon are both qualified chartered accountants; Hugh Travers and Paul Travers are both practising at the Bar in the Temple. THE CAMBRIDGE FOUNDATION: A PROGRESS REPORT The Cambridge Foundation was set up in 1989, with the aim of raising 250 million within ten years for the University. The University and the Cambridge Foundation are working in partnership to establish and implement priorities. At present there are six key initiatives: A New Building for Biochemistry The cost of the first building phase is 7.5 million. Generous external support together with contributions from within the University community will provide much of this sum, but about 2 million remains to be funded. A further 16 million is sought to complete the rest of the building phases. A New Law Faculty Building 10 million has been raised within the University to finance the first phase of the Faculty building. Sir Norman Foster has been appointed as the architect, and building designs are well advanced. The building project calls for a further 8 million. Additional funds are sought for the Faculty library, and for new posts. Management Studies The Judge Institute of Management Studies, which is named to acknowledge the outstanding gift by Mr and Mrs Paul Judge, will offer a distinctive MBA from October A pledge from Mr Simon Sainsbury provides the rest of the money necessary to build the new Institute. A new Professorship, endowed by Guinness PLC, has provided an associate for the existing Peat Marwick Professor. Barclays Bank are supporting a lectureship. Remaining needs include the endowment of a major library, computing equipment and funds for research. Engineering From 1992, the first-degree course in Engineering is being extended to four years, in response to the needs of the modern world. The proposed 20 million expansion programme will provide the laboratories the Department needs. An encouraging lead has been given by Mr David Sainsbury, whose generous gift will enable twice as many students to take the Advanced Course in Design, Manufacture and Management. School of Clinical Medicine Generous benefactions for teaching and research have come from (among others) the Cancer Research Campaign and the Welcome Trust, Glaxo, Serono Diagnostics, the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Foundation, the Kay Kendall Leukemia Fund and Bayer UK. The University Library An extension to the building is proceeding, at a cost of 4.5 million, with funds provided by the Universities' Funding Council, the Cambridge University Press, the Newton Trust and the University's own allocation. Further major extensions remain to be funded. Over 100 million has already been raised in pledges and actual donations, including 50 million from the Colleges and University institutions. Meanwhile the Cambridge Foundation is preparing for an appeal for funds to all alumni, which will be launched towards the end of The Cambridge Foundation is an independent trust, with trustees from inside and outside the University. Sir Alastair Pilkington is the Foundation's Chairman, with Sir Adrian Cadbury as his deputy. The Cambridge University Development Office, headed by the Development Director, Dr William Squire, is the operational arm of the Foundation.

14 12 St Catharine's College Society Magazine THE CAMBRIDGE ALUMNI WEEK-END: SEPTEMBER 1991 Old members of the College who plan to attend the reunion dinner on 28 September may be interested in the programme of events that the University has devised to supplement college reunions. Perhaps the central feature is the Vice-Chancellor's Alumni Luncheon which will take place in the University Centre on Saturday 28 September. 600 tickets are available at 15 a head. On the Saturday morning there will be a programme of lectures on the Sidgwick site illustrating a wide variety of ways in which the University performs at the "Frontiers of Knowledge". Speakers will include Professor Laurie Hall, Dr Geoff Harcourt, Mr John Spencer and Professor Hewish. The Secretary General of the University will lead a presentation on the University's Future Plans in the Lady Mitchell Hall on the Saturday afternoon. A number of departments are organising special tours and events. These include a tour of the Museum of Zoology on Friday morning, tours of the Geography Department and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology on Friday afternoon, a tour of the Institute of Astronomy on Sunday morning and tours of the Veterinary School and Department of Pharmacology on Sunday afternoon. The University Engineers Association, an alumni group open to anyone who read engineering, will be holding its annual conference on the Friday. The topic will be "Advances in instrumentation for Engineering Applications". The week-end's events will not be entirely serious. A City Guide is organising a sight-seeing programme, and CUMS are organising a "scratch" Brahms Requiem for Friday evening. There is a basic booking fee of 10, but most of the events are free of charge. Detailed programmes and booking forms are available from the Courses Registrar, The Board of Extramural Studies, Madingley Hall, Madingley, Cambridge CB3 8AQ. THE BATHROOMS AND THE BEAUTY At the Society's meeting last September, Richard Edis (1962) suggested that while bathrooms were important, so was beauty. He and others paid tribute to the transformation in the College's appearance as well as its facilities since the Second World War. However, Edis wondered whether, without contemplating anything like a major appeal which the Governing Body had ruled out for the next decade, there might be interest in raising sums for particular projects to enhance the existing buildings and grounds, for example a fountain or a statue. A variety of proposals were subsequently collected and discussed with the Governing Body. The unshot was that the Governing Body decided to incorporate a number of these ideas into its maintenance and redecoration programme. In addition, they wished to make it clear that contributions for specific projects of this nature from individuals or groups and gifts of existing works which could enhance the College's appearance externally or internally, would continue to be most welcome. R J S Edis THE CHAPEL CHOIR This year the choir was a small but happy band of pilgrims, spending a weekend at Lincoln Cathedral in February, getting away from it all. The delights of singing services no doubt helped to keep the choir sane for the rest of the year. Our only difficulty on this trip was persuading the Junior Organ Scholar, Andrew Reid, that he could not take the organ home with him. The choir witnesses several changes. The new Director of Music, Dr Dean Sutcliffe, has given us firm support. Sadly we say farewell to the Chaplain, The Rev'd Dr Andrew Lenox- Conyngham, who for five years has laboured away. Of his numerous attributes one must single out his sense of humour. We wish him well in Heidelberg. The choir repertory has widened markedly during the year, and the choir enjoys singing the music thrown in front of it, whether old or new, English or foreign, accompanied or not. Andrew Reid has been much welcomed in the Organ Loft. His fine playing has graced the Chapel for the year and the fact that most of the congregation stay to hear him after services tells its own story. So where does one go after Poland? This year the choir is going to Scotland for a week, where it is hoped the superb climate and the glorious buildings will produce some fine sounds. Rupert Jeffcoat Senior Organ Scholar

15 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 13 Editorial Some will associate the twenty-fourth of August with the feast of St Bartholomew or, perhaps, with Paris on that day in 1572, the first of some tens of thousands of Huguenots were slain. The Bishop of London 1, at that time, wrote urgently to Lord Burghley that "this barbarous treachery will not cease in France", and he suggested measures for the safety of the City and, above all, for the safety of the Queen: "Hasten Her Majesty homeward, her safe return to London will comfort many hearts oppressed with fear". On the twenty-fourth of August last year, hearts were again "oppressed with fear" as Michael Weston (1956) and his staff, heard the rolling of tanks and artillery that surrounded the Embassy in Kuwait, the building which became for the Kuwaitis "a symbol of humanity". Four long months of seige followed. We in St Catharine's would wish to pay tribute to his wisdom, which saved many lives, and to his capacity for mental and physical survival. His candid personal account of the events, Last Out, First In, was already in print when we received news of the public tribute to him in the Queen's recent Honours List (see page 14 and Honours and Awards). For most of us our service is to stand and wait, as international crises follow one another. Jeremy Paxman (1969), on the B.B.C. Newsnight programme presented to us the events in Kuwait as they unfolded and, in pursuance of a true interpretation of conflicting international vantage points, dispensed courtesy and skill not invariably evident in his profession. We may well submit that his persistent pursuit of the consequential plight of the Kurds contributed to the British demand for "safe havens". You will find, amongst the ever-growing number of St Catharine's Publications that John Andrew (1947, Fellow 1965) urges us to read Jeremy on "Who Runs Britain?". At High Table in Hall these days, John Addenbrooke (1697, Fellow 1704) would doubtless welcome the company of the first Bayer Professor of Neuro-surgery in the University, as he would applaud the appointment of the first Director of Research in the Department of Health, and other appointments at Medical Colleges announced within. Among the "home team" of resident members of College this year, of particular pleasure has been the appointment of two of our senior Fellows to professorships. Furthermore, you will note that three research fellowships have gone, in open competition, to St Catharine's graduates. We provided the President of the C.U.B.C. and another crew member for the Blue boat. St Catharine's hockey team won the league, unaided by Paul Harvey, who is to be next year's Blues captain in only his second year of residence; and Anthea Bethge, our resident exchange student from Heidelberg, won us a fullblue in karate (surely a first?). The "away team", as ever, have our "respect - mingled with surprise". A post-graduate who had researched "The influence of Plotinus" is busy chipping away at Linden wood; a Q.C. advises within on the best method of transporting your push-bike by air "down under"; a Professor of Pacific Studies writes of Burgess and MacLean; news is full of the unexpected. The Chapel, also, this last term has been the scene of the unexpected. One of the gifts of our retiring Chaplain, Andrew Lenox-Conyngham, has been his ability to draw exceptional preachers to the College. The greatest of these may well have been an attractive young lady, Irina Ratushinskaya, who last term spoke serenly of her sentence in 1982 to seven years in prison and a further five in exile, where she suffered starvation, extreme cold and brutality for her witness in poetry to spiritual values and the Christian Faith. Since Irina was freed from Mordovia, the U.S.S.R. has appeared to be in disintegration. The Kuwaitis, the Kurds, and now the Slovenes and Croats seek their nationality, as did England in the sixteenth century. In 1960, when the University Orator presented Tunku Abdel Rahman (1922) to the Vice-Chancellor for his Honorary LL.D., he said (in his Latin oration) that the candidate had undertaken a truly Heraclean role in persuading "the three commingled races who inhabit the great peninsular (of Malaya), and were far from likely to coalesce, that they should sink their differences and work for a common policy". How did he effect this seeming miracle? By "a rare geniality, which won the regard of men exceeding diverse and then brought them into harmony". The Orator continued, "He is said, moreover, to have left a lasting memorial of his sojourn among us. For a Riley car which he used to drive about the place is reputed to have led to the appointment of a special Pro-Proctor, "Procurator Extraordinarius vehiculorum igne interno propulsorum"! 2 The contribution of the Tunku to international good order must surely be one of the triumphs the College may justly celebrate in this century.

16 14 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Last Out, First In Michael C.S. Weston (1956), Ambassador in Kuwait The Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, which began in the small hours of 2 August 1990, took everyone by surprise. Tension had been mounting over the previous few weeks, but the disagreement over Kuwait's oil policy, which was the reason for the quarrel, or at least the pretext, had been described by the Kuwaiti Foreign Minister as "a summer cloud", and, despite the build-up of troops in Southern Iraq, no one believed a full scale invasion was imminent. The worst that was expected was that Iraqi forces would occupy the disputed border areas, the islands of Bubiyan and Warba, which control access to the new Iraqi port of Umm Qasr, and Rutba, the Kuwaiti part of the Rumailah/Rutba oil field which straddles the frontier between the two countries. Such illusions were rudely shattered. I was telephoned by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Defence at 2 o'clock on the morning of 2 August and was told that Iraqi troops had crossed the border and occupied Rutba. Our informant added the advice that we should not worry: the Iraqis were digging in and "clearly" intended to advance no further. Having telephoned the Resident Clerk at the Foreign Office, therefore, I went back to bed and to sleep. I was awoken less than three hours later by the noise of small-arms fire outside my window. I looked out. Troops were attacking the Amir's palace next door. Again I telephoned London. It was the last time I was to be able to speak to them by telephone for many months since, shortly afterwards, all international lines were cut. We turned on the radio, and tuned in to the BBC. We heard that the Iraqi Government had announced that they had intervened in Kuwait, at the request of a new Kuwaiti Government which had overthrown the ruling Sabah family. We learned shortly afterwards, again from the BBC, who had been monitoring Baghdad radio, that a curfew had been imposed until further notice and that we were forbidden to go out into the street. I had three groups of people for whose welfare I was responsible: the Embassy staff and their families; the 75 members of the British military liaison team (BLT) and their wives; and the British community, of whom some 3,000 were currently in Kuwait. Three members of the Embassy staff were staying with me in my Residence. The remainder (some 30 people, including wives and children) were in their homes, between 5 and 20 minutes drive from the Embassy. We telephoned round and discovered that all except the Consul, who had left for the Embassy some time ago, were safe. (He arrived at the Embassy some 3 hours later, having been held up by Iraqi troops, together with groups of Kuwaitis whom the troops had rounded up off the street.) The news about the BLT was less good. At first, it proved impossible to contact them. When finally we managed to do so, the following day, it was to learn that half the men had been detained by the Iraqis and their families, who lived in an isolated camp some 20 miles south of Kuwait City, were under house arrest. Over the next few days, much of my time was spent trying to sort out the problems of the BLT and to transfer their families to a safer place. There were no reports of casualties among the British community. Over the next three weeks, we had many meetings of the "wardens", each of whom was responsible for keeping in touch with those British citizens living near them. These meetings became particularly important when the Embassy telephone lines were cut on the third or fourth day after the invasion. Fighting in the neighbourhood of the Embassy and elsewhere ceased by mid-afternoon. Thereafter there were sporadic outbreaks of firing, but such resistance as the Kuwaiti armed forces had been able to put up was ended. The next day, however, the streets were full of members of the Iraqi "popular army", who had been brought down to Kuwait by bus. These people roamed the streets, looting and pillaging. Over the next few weeks, members of the Kuwaiti ruling family, other Kuwaitis and many foreigners escaped to Saudi Arabia over land. For those accustomed to desert driving and with properly equipped vehicles, the journey was reasonably safe, though long and tiring. But for others, particularly those with young children, it was very hazardous. I therefore advised the community to stay indoors and "keep their heads down" (advice taken literally by many!). There has subsequently been criticism of this advice but, following an incident in which a member of the British community was shot trying to cross the Saudi border, most people followed it. And the wisdom of the advice was to be demonstrated by the fact that apart from one or two deaths from natural causes and the tragic death of the son of the Commanding Officer of the BLT in a traffic accident, no member of the British community came to any real harm.

17 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 15 The situation in the Embassy changed dramatically on 24 August. Until that time, as long as we respected the curfew, which after the first 24 hours following the invasion was confined to hours of darkness, we had been able to move round freely. Thereafter the three remaining members of my staff and I were confined to the Embassy compound. Iraqi soldiers, with tanks and artillery, surrounded the compound and nobody was allowed in or out. Water and electricity supplies were cut, and we were left with just one telephone, which could be used for local calls. We had had some warning of the Iraqi plan to blockade Embassies who refused to obey their instructions to move to Baghdad, and had been able to purchase quantities of rice and tinned food, and to stock up with water and diesel fuel for our generator. Although we had not expected such a long siege, we still had adequate supplies of food when we were eventually pulled out in mid-december. We had also managed to stretch out our supplies of fuel (by using cars parked in the compound to charge our radio batteries) and water (by digging a well, which provided brackish water for washing and hence enabled us to keep our sweet water supplies for drinking). Apart from a limited amount of political reporting, our major function during the four month period of the siege was to provide a link, by means of our radio, between members of the British community in Kuwait and the outside world. We also saw ourselves as demonstrating the British Government's refusal to accept the Iraqi annexation of Kuwait, or as one Kuwaiti Minister subsequently put it to me, as "a symbol of humanity"! On 16 December, about a week after all British citizens who wished to leave had been allowed to do so, I was instructed to leave. I considered turning a deaf ear to my instructions. I felt committed to Kuwait and I wanted to demonstrate to the Kuwaiti people that I had stayed for their sake as well as that of the British community. But the habits of a lifetime prevailed and I reluctantly locked up the Embassy and flew to London, via Baghdad and Amman. The American Embassy, the last of the other Embassies to close, had been evacuated a few days previously. I spent Christmas with my wife in Geneva, waiting impatiently for the coalition forces to drive the Iraqis from Kuwait. Knowing, as I did, how badly the Iraqis were behaving and the damage that was being done to the country, I was anxious that Kuwait should be liberated without further delay. I accompanied the Prime Minister and later the Foreign Secretary on visits to Taif, to see the Amir, in exile in Saudi Arabia. Then in February, just before I was due to move to Taif "permanently" myself, the ground war began and, four days later, was over. Kuwait was free! I returned to Kuwait on 27 February, to a rapturous welcome. A new US Embassador arrived the following day. The country appeared totally devastated and the people completely dazed, among them were British citizens who had elected to stay. Meeting them again and learning they were all safe was an enormous relief. Over the next few weeks we helped the Kuwaitis get things going again, to restore electricity and water supplies to clear up the debris and to begin the task of putting out the oil well fires and restoring production. As I write this brief article on 1 May, the task has hardly begun. It will take time to complete but it will be done. Britain will play a full part in the reconstruction of Kuwait, as we did in her liberation. It is a proud moment.

18 16 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Tunku Abdul Rahman (1922) Hon. Fellow 1960, Hon. LL.D 1960 "I'll die fighting" declared the Tunku (the princely title by which he was affectionately known in College), who died on 6th December 1990 at the age of 87. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj was the first Prime Minister of Malaya ( ) and subsequently of Malaysia ( ). In 1988, eighteen years after his retirement, he was called to defend the cause of democracy in response to the stringent policies of the Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir. A Cath's man, formally a Headmaster, took the opportunity very recently of accepting the Tunku's characteristic hospitatlity to members of St. Catharine's, which included making available his chauffered car to tour Penang. Their meeting enabled the Tunku, in his last months, to recall his days at St. Catharine's. He talked keenly about sport, playing outside right in soccer, and about the College, speaking highly of Tom Henn and Teddy Rich. He described how he had been recommended to apply to St. Catharine's. He was interviewed by Dr. Chaytor, the Dean, who told him that the College did not take many foreign students. The Tunku accepted that his application would not be successful and he reported this back to the Office in Whitehall for further advice. Dr Chaytor was contacted and it was discovered that the Tunku had not mentioned his family descent. Tunku Abdul Rahman was born on 8th February 1903, the twentieth of the forty-five children of the Sultan of Kedah. His half-burmese, half-siamese mother was the sixth and favourite of the Sultan's eight wives; "Of course, my father only had four wives at any one time. That is what was allowed." The Tunku was educated in Bangkok and Penang and his years at St. Catharine's were very formative for his future political life. Searching in vain for a College room, he said that he was told that "this College is built for Englishmen." When the College hierarchy intervened it was too late - he declined to accept a room in College. In spite of this, he bore no grudge, enjoying his life at Cambridge, his motor vehicle enabling him frequently to spend truant weekends in London, and he was certainly popular amongst his peers. At the end of his first year at College his father admonished him for his lack of "achievement". He read Law for two years and History in his last; gaining a third in each successive year, taking his B.A. on the 26th June The Tunku's first taste of government came as District Officer in Langkawi, and as Superintendent of Education in Kedah, under Thai administration after the Japanese invasion of Malaya (1941) - when, in a famous incident, he kidnapped his father, the Sultan, to prevent him falling into the hands of the retreating British. Through the Kedah-based Saberkas party, he entered Malay nationalist politics. During the Japanese occupation, the Tunku's independent decisions often led him into trouble with the invaders. After the war he formed a welfare organisation to care for refugees from the infamous Burma railway built for the Japanese by Allied prisoners of war and Asian labourers. He returned to England to study law and in 1949 at the age of 46 he was called to the Bar ("the biggest thrill of my life"). After his return from the United Kingdom he was precipitated, unexpectedly and reluctantly, into the natonal leadership of the United Malay National Organisation (UMNO) on the resignation of its founding father, Dato Onn bin Hussein the son of a Pahang notable and an associate of his student days in England - he rapidly succeeded in establishing his authority in the party. Severly underestimated by colonial officials, he survived a threatened fragmentation of Malay politics, to guide the main Chinese and Indian parties into an inter-communal alliance which has persisted in its main features to this day. His reputation was consolidated by electoral triumph in 1955, and by an approach from the leader of the Malayan Communist Party, Chin Peng, requesting a meeting. British officials were unwilling to see him attend, lest he granted the communists concessions and a quick peace, in order to accelerate the process of decolonisation on the eve of his departure for constitutional talks in London. The leaders met at Baling in the Tunku's home state of Kedah where, as he later acknowledged, he 'received, unintentionally, a big lesson in Communism'. His resolute anti-communist stand at the talks won him respect of the colonial government and confirmed his claim to national leadership, and in August 1957 became the first Prime Minister of Malaya. As a helmsman during the first years of independence, a genial, accommodatory style in domestic politics, and a pro-western, pragmatic foreign policy, belied his resolution in meeting

19 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 17 two great tests of leadership: confrontation with Indonesia, and the departure of Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore from Malaysia. However, it was his reputaton for generosity to non-malay interests that undermined his capacity to survive a changing domestic political mood, of which the 1969 communal riots were an ugly symptom. After his retirement in 1970 he did not seek a quiet retirement. He was the Secretary General of the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers ( ). He was prominent in affairs of the Islamic religion, but it was his journalism and autobiographical writings - collected in volumes such as May 13th - before and after; As a matter of interest Contemporary issues in Malaysian politics - that sustained a high public profile. He was approachable and quoteable to the last, and his many interventions into constitutional issues and Malay factional politics, although they repeatedly antagonised many politicians, could be disregarded by none. Tunku remained Babak Malaysia - 'Father of Malaysia' - and the controversies his later public utterances provoked stand as a measure of his success in playing that role, and for many, represented, in a changing political world, a degree of nostalgia for the style of govenment he represented.

22 20 St Catharine's College Society Magazine The St Catharine's Society will welcome the new appointments printed on the previous page. Mr Robert Baddeley came up to St Catharine's in 1984 from Brighton College and read Mathematics, and continued to do so in 1988 when he began his PhD. He captained the University in Badminton and was awarded a discrectionary Full Blue. He also has a Squash Full Blue and recently captained the British Students Badminton Team in the World Student's Championship in Cyprus (1990). Otherwise his interests are in camping and cycling. Mr Alun Morris David was born in Welwyn Garden City, Herts. In 1984 he came to St Catharine's to read English. After spending a year at Harvard as a Kennedy Scholar, he returned to St Catharine's in 1988 to work on eighteenthcentury English literature. His PhD thesis is on Christopher Smart and the Hebrew Bible. His interests include modern jazz, cinema, and drawing (though strictly not for exhibition). Ms. Emily Jackson attended the Sorbonne University, Paris for 6 months before studying law at Brasenose College, Oxford. Since graduating with a first, she worked at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies at Oxford, and has taught at Reading and Oxford. She has been involved in family law research, including compiling a cross-national analysis of the financial consequences of divorce; and she is currently working on an appraisal of the new Child Support Bill. Her other research interests include feminist legal theory and critical jurisprudence. Dr David Knowles came from Beaminster School to St Catharine's in 1985 to read Natural Sciences, specialising in Material Science and Metallurgy. He continued his research for a PhD at St Catharine's in micromechanisms of fatigue and fracture failure in the particulate reinforced Metal Matrix Composite. During this year he has been a most active participant in College and University sports. He played rugby for the College 1st team for a number of years and threw the javelin for the University, and he was also College atheletics captain for a year. He is currently dabbling in a little rowing and enjoys fell walking and cycle touring. The Rev'd Paul Langham was born in London, but educated in the Lake District. He read History at Exeter University, where he also obtained a Diploma in Theology. He trained for the Anglican Ordained Ministry at Ridley Hall in Cambridge, also reading Theology & Religious Studies at Fitzwilliam. In between these bouts of study, he worked for the Civil Service, a private Diner's Club in Mayfair, swept up Wembley after the 1982 FA Cup Final, and spent a year working in a Children's Home. For the 4 years since leaving Ridley, he has been Curate of a parish in Bath. He is married to Jackie and they have a son, Jonathan. His interests include photography, several sports, cooking, reading and music. Professor John D. Pickard (1964) comes back to St. Catharine's on taking up his appointment as the first Bayer Professor of Neurosurgery in the University, announced in last year's magazine. On going down from St. Catharine's JDP did his clinical training at Kings College Hospital. He has worked in Glasgow, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and Southampton University, at the latter being appointed Professor of Clinical Neurological Sciences in He is Chairman of the research Committee of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism and an Officer of the World Federation of Neurosurgical societies. He writes that he and Mary, his wife, together with their 3 children are delighted to be back and are looking forward to playing their part in College affairs.

This is a courageous and, as the author ruefully remarks often lonely, attempt to encourage fellow Muslims to encounter secular 'Modernity' creatively and without merely pulling up the drawbridge. Akhtar memorably splats unthought-out twaddle, whether Muslim or Christian, fundamentalist, liberal or conservative, or just plain secular. He is scrupulously fair in his presentation of religious positions differing from his own, even when he finds them puzzling. In fact the 'conceptual confusions' which he detects in various Christian doctrines have not been lost on those who all too often have been reduced to resolving them with bomb and bullet; but he tactfully refrains from saying so, and seeks instead some of the positive lessons which he believes can be learnt (for example in liberal Protestant theology and Biblical scholarship) from Christianity's own encounter with 'Modernity' in recent centuries. Akhtar's own stance on Satanic Verses, only obliquely alluded to here, was well known; and some of the heartache and soul-searching behind his public utterances becomes apparent between the lines of the book. In one of many tart throw-aways, he remarks that had Muhammad, not Jesus, stood before Pontius Pilate, "the Roman would have had a lot more to do than merely wash his hands": "Discuss", as the examiners have no doubt recently been saying? I.D.L.C. ROMANTIC ECOLOGY: Jonathan Bate. WORDSWORTH AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL TRADITION. Routledge. pp131 Jonathan Bate's new book turns on the apparent paradox that the most promising way of reading Wordsworth now - a way that links his writings with the recent "greening" of politics - is the Victorian way. He sees Wordsworth's revolutionary politics and his love of the Lakeland environment as deeply connected, and Wordsworth's description of the Lakes as "a sort of national property" a seed that grows into the National Trust. In sketching out the Wordsworthian-Ruskinian tradition Professor Bate traces a growth of ecological consciousness, and he is surely right that any sane politics will have a belief in nature's sanctity at its heart. A short, beautifully written book: suggestive and challenging. It deserves to be widely read. C.E.B. THE ENGINEERS R. A. Buchanan A History of the Engineering Profession in Britain, Jessica Kingsley In spite of Kipling's dictum about the nine-fifteen, the English have not been inclined to regard engineering and engineers as suitable subjects for romance, nor indeed for any form of literary attention, so that it is a real pleasure to see this scholarly work devoted to the development of the engineering profession, with all its successes and failures, during the period 1750 to The author is an established historian, who confesses that he has been unable to identify with the engineers he has studied, but he treats his subject matter with sympathy, and a view from the outside can well be more valuable than one painted by those more closely involved. The bulk of the work, each chapter annotated with copious references, traces the birth and subsequent history of the professional bodies of engineers, from their early beginnings about At that time the major undertakings in the burgeoning industrial revolution were creating

26 24 St Catharine's College Society Magazine a new and increasingly self-confident group of experts, so that by 1818 the first of our great Institutions, the Civils, had been formed. Its influence was for a long time profound but, perhaps unfortunately for the profession, in due course this waned, as societies proliferated and the profession fragmented whenever a new field of technology matured. Though these historical researches are the most important and factual part of the book, most engineers will read with interest the two last chapters, "The Ideas and Beliefs of the Engineers" and "Engineering and Society", where the author, with justification, finds us "muted in political beliefs and reserved in religious beliefs", though he is less fair with the criticism that we have made little direct contribution to art and music. After all, musicians have designed few bridges. As an inarticulate profession perhaps we may leave our defence to the great designer of steam locomotives, Sir Daniel Gooch, who after representing Cricklade for twenty years wrote "The House of Commons has been a very pleasant club. I have taken no part in any of the debates, and have been a silent member. It would be a great advantage to business if there were a greater number who followed my example." This is a book that every aspiring young engineer should read, both to understand the present status of his profession, and to come to terms with his own credo. F.D.R. REGIONS IN RECESSION AND RESURGENCE M. Chisholm Unwin Hyman 1990 Michael Chisholm's new book represents a fascinating and wide-ranging attempt to assess the relevance of major economic theories - neo-classical theory, Keynesianism, radical-marxist theory - to the realities of Western regional economic development and policy in the 1990s. Rapid changes in regional fortunes, and in the international and technological environment confronting regional policy-makers, have highlighted inadequacies in these theories, not least their neglect of supply-side issues such as workforce skills, mobility and incentives, and the key role of investment in R and D. The latter are also undervalued, Chisholm argues, in recent "long wave" and profit cycle ideas about contemporary regional economic restructuring. In contrast, empirical evidence about the actual location needs of modern firms - of high-tech industry, or of new and small firms - suggests that regional success or decline is not wholly determined by external forces, but can be influenced by human action and local policies. The key message of Professor Chisholm's rewarding 'extended essay', then, is that local and regional policies - especially supply-side policies - matter. It is a message well worth considering by all - students, academics and politicians - who are concerned about regional development in a rapidly-changing world. D.E.K. Z; AN INTRODUCTION TO FORMAL METHODS Antoni Diller John Wiley & Sons, 1990 Antoni Diller's book is about the language Z used for the formal specification of computer software components (i.e. programming problems). It is a textbook based on Diller's lecture courses for the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. The book contains not only a formal introduction to the Z language, but also a section on methods of reasoning and a number of case studies. There are many exercises (with answers) for self-study and a reference section. An annotated bibliography contains many pointers to the rapidly expanding literature on Z and formal methods. Parts of the text are based on a course for engineers rather than computer scientists; as a result, the book is useful to those with a passing interest in the formal proof of programs as well to those studying such matters. R.S. THE DICTIONARY OF CELL BIOLOGY edited by J.M. Lackie and J.A.T. Dow Academic Press 1989, 262 pages Once there were just Biology and Chemistry. But between these two subjects there are now Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and (honestly - you can study it in the Natural Sciences Tripos!) even Molecular Cell Biology. With these new subjects have come discoveries of new components and processes in living cells, and new procedures to investigate them. The terminology used can be overwhelming, and a dictionary therefore is to be welcomed. John Lackie and Julian Dow, both formerly of St. Catharine's and subsequently colleagues at the University of Glasgow, have produced an excellent compilation within a manageable number of

27 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 25 pages. In tests, I found everything I sought except the polymerase chain reaction. But, as the editors state, they could not anticipate new terms - Cell Biology is moving rapidly, so they can be forgiven. Even the revision form, inviting comments, at the back of the book is already out of date: John has now moved to Oxford (see Appointments and Notes). C.J.R.T. 1840: THE BEGINNINGS OF TEACHER W. Etherington TRAINING IN NORWICH Printed by the Keswick Hall Trustees at the University of East Anglia 1990, 15 pp. This little booklet deals with events subsequent upon the appointment in 1840 of the Rev'd Alexander Bath Power (St Catharine's 1829) to be Superintendent of a "Diocesan Training Institution for Schoolmasters and Schoolmistresses"; he held the appointment for seventeen years. The institution he built up has survived to be part of the University of East Anglia, despite cholera in the Cathedral Close where the Superintendent was expected to live with his family, despite the judgement of the Newcastle Commission that "The occupation of an elementary schoolmaster is not well suited for a young man of an... ambitious character, inquisitive mind or very brilliant talents..", and despite the critics who dismissed the claim that teaching deserved to be called a profession as "conceited" J.M. EYEWITNESSES AT NUREMBERG Hilary Gaskin Arms & Armour 1990 The Experience of War series, to which this book belongs, assembles first-hand accounts by ordinary people involved in the Second World War. Hilary Gaskin here introduces twenty-four verbatim descriptions of the trial of Nazi war criminals, given by, among others, lawyers, secretaries, translators, and a prison guard. They portray not only the trial itself but also life in Germany at the time, The differing tones of voices and the variety of attitudes are themselves instructive, suggesting the complex issues involved. But shadowing the behaviour and characters of the prisoners are the ghosts of their victims; the concentration camps are never far away, sickeningly tangible, as is the plight of so many displaced persons and their random vengeance on their erstwhile conquerors. This kind of history is far more graphic and thought-provoking than are official records, accurate in a different way. Hilary Gaskin is to be congratulated on her presentation of this painful material - painful, yet perennially apposite, as present day events make clear. G.C. EYNSHAM ABBEY Eric Gordon Phillimore 1990 Eric Gordon, Bishop of Sodor and Man until his retirement in 1974, read classics at St Catharine's between He has presented a copy of this book to the college "in much gratitude, especially for many hours with W.H.S. Jones"*. The book chronicles the rapidly changing fortunes of Eynsham Abbey during the early Middle Ages, describing monastic life and customs under the Benedictine rule. Aimed at a wide audience, it is well-written and beautifully illustrated, combining both scholarship and readability. Gordon displays healthy scepticism of the reliability of the major documentary source, the Eynsham Cartulary, and guides the reader ably through the primary material, supplying his own translations from records to illustrate his history. Subtitled A Small Window into a Large Room, the book succeeds in its attempt to make the wider concerns and problems of the period accessible to a general readership through the study of one particular foundation. K.A.L. * Professor W. H. S. Jones F.B.A. Litt.D b d. 1963, at one time classics master at the Perse School, Cambridge, was made a Fellow of St. Catharine's in 1908 and later became President of the College. Amongst his published works were Malaria and Greek History, 1909, and A History of St. Catharine's College, 1936.

28 26 St Catharine's College Society Magazine THE KUWAIT CRISIS: Edited by E. Lauterpacht, CJ. Greenwood, BASIC DOCUMENTS M. Weller (Alex Jacobson Research Fellow 1990) and D. Bethlehem Pub. Cambridge, Grotius Publications, Cambridge International Documents Series, Vol.1, 1991 The book opens with a historical section relating to the development and independence of Kuwait and the extent of its territory, as well as to the birth of Iraq as an independent state. The legal positions of the two sides are then stated in two memoranda provided by Iraq and Kuwait. The bulk of the materials contained in the book concerns the United Nations' response to the Gulf crisis. Security Council resolutions and debates, and further submissions by states are reproduced in addition to documents of other international organisations. The book also contains national legislation adopted in response to the U.N. economic sanctions. M.W. BEYOND THE CASINO ECONOMY N Costello, J Michie & S Milne, PLANNING FOR THE 1990s Verso 1989 (2nd Impression 1990) This book critically reviews theories that we are entering a 'post-fordist' epoch characterised by small firms, stressing that many new technologies necessitate large-scale companies. It argues that the huge potential of the information economy is being restricted in Britain by a market-led strategy which results in companies developing incompatible technologies rather than establishing integrated information networks and suggests that the long-term investment required in R&D and advanced networks is limited by the casino-like operations of the City of London. J.M. WAGES IN THE BUSINESS CYCLE: AN EMPIRICAL Jonathan Michie AND METHODOLOGICAL ANALYSIS Pub Frances Pinter, pp Just as the 1930s provoked a crisis in economics when the policy prescriptions (of wage cutting) were unsuccessful, so the 1970s provoked a crisis in economics when the policy prescriptions (of fiscal reflation) were unsuccessful. Persistent unemployment has led to the reemergence of the idea that wages need to decline (cyclically, compared to trend) in order to price workers back into jobs. Wages in the Business Cycle investigates the theoretical background to such policy discussion and subjects the wage-employment relation to empirical testing, finding no systematic correlation. Wage cuts appear just as likely to price workers out of jobs. J.M. ARTHUR HUGH CLOUGH: edited by Jim McCue SELECTED POEMS Penguin Books 1991 Clough is a poet especially congenial to our contemporary climate of feeling and opinion. Vulnerable to changing patterns of belief, and rooted in the day-to-day experiences of his time, he was more concerned with frankness and sincerity than with musicality or picturesque effect. In the words of the present editor, 'he is now seen as the Victorian poet who most honestly faced temptation and who best understood how muted is the voice of conscience.' Jim McCue has made an intelligent selection from his work, including the whole of the long poem in letters, Amour de Voyage, for which he provides helpful notes. But most interesting is the printing of Clough's original version of Scenes Two to Five of Dipsychus and the Spirit. This first continuous draft is an unguarded expression of unconventional feelings, and lays bare much that is at the root of Victorian responses to sexuality. McCue commendably refrains from imposing his own personal evaluations on an edition which, as a Penguin classic, will be used by students and readers for some time to come.

We have here a slice of political history given cohesion by the reign of a long-lived and successful king: an old-fashioned subject brought up to date by a wide-awake and analytical reading of the sources. After an elegant narrative of the main events of the reign, the author examines, in successive chapters, the political role of ministers, magnates, clergy, provincial society and the towns, and the success of the king in managing their interests and demands. The arrangement leads to a certain amount of repetition. However, the approach which presents medieval government as neither a clash of individual wills nor an impersonal march of institutions but a fluid, experimental interplay of both with economic and social forces, cannot but set our understanding of this period of history on a much firmer footing than before. C.B. FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES Jeremy Paxman - WHO RUNS BRITAIN' Michael Joseph pp.368 Mr Paxman's book offers a substantial and complex body of information and opinion: indeed, the sheer effort that has gone into the accumulation of fact, together with the wide range of views that he has sought from both interviews and printed sources is as imprerssive as the task he set himself must have seemed daunting. As Douny an old bird as Enoch Powell remarked, he tells us, 'I fear, young man, that you are hunting the snark'. Nevertheless his judgements seem just and carefully balanced, based as they are on evidence which is lucidly presented; they are also inhanced by the humour with which he observes the eccentricities, absurdities and even downright dishonesties which seem inseparable from our public life and private attitudes. It is, for all that, a disturbing book which examines under thirteen heads a range of those centres of influence which have exercised or laid the foundations for the exercise of power in our community. A common theme is that sense of public service which has motivated the Great and the Good in the past, and the role of schools, universities and many other groups, classes and institutions in sustaining what, during the second world war, became known as 'British Way and Purpose'. Many of these attitudes have failed to survive the changes wrought in our society, particularly in recent years; and it is these changes that Mr. Paxman probes against the background of past standards and expectations. His view of our society is far from comforting, but his critique is conducted with good humour and his occasional sense of outrage is salted by his sharp eye for the preposterous. There are many amusing stories here - enough to keep the average table chuckling; but the account of the life - our lives - we now lead is calculated to remove the smirk from one's face. His conclusion that the new beatitude is 'Blessed are the selfish' is hard to deny. This is a book that should be widely read: it offers an account of our public life and attitudes and how we arrived at them. It therefore offers a basis, however disturbing, upon which to consider the future. Mr. Paxman is a very good journalist indeed: and that, despite much contemporary practice, is an honourable tradition to which this book belongs. J.M.Y.A. LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN: Theodore Redpath A STUDENT'S MEMOIR London, Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd 1990 Theodore Redpath, has spent part of his retirement in writing Ludwig Wittgenstein: A Student's Memoir (Duckworth, 12.95). This is not offered as a philosophical work, but as a contribution to the stock of reminiscences of Wittgenstein. One's main response to these recollections is gratitude for a novel perspective on Wittgenstein from a student of firm individuality, who is visibly not dominated by his mentor, either at the time of their aquaintance or at the time Of Writing.

30 28 St Catharine's College Society Magazine IRELAND, ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA Edited by F.B. Smith ESSAYS IN HONOUR OF OLIVER MACDONAGH Australian National University, Canberra and Cork University Press, Cork Oliver MacDonagh - former Official Fellow and now Honorary Fellow of the College - has made his mark in, and on the history of, Ireland, England and Australia. To commemorate the originality of his work and the beneficence of his scholarly and personal influence, a seminar was organized in the year of his retirement as W.K. Hancock Professor of History in the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Australian National University. In their range and quality the essays are a fitting tribute to the variety, depth and stimulation of his manifold historical writings. A biographical memoir is followed by three essays on Irish history, one on the echo of Ulster in South African history, a teasing exploration of Asquith's reputed bridge-playing idleness during the First World War, two essays on the civil service, one on Menzies in Ireland in 1941 and one on the administration of the police force in Australia. The collection is capped by a characteristically perceptive, lucid and learned piece by Oliver himself on Cardinal Newman. This is an excellent Festschrift for an excellent man. B.E.S. POLITICAL CHANGE IN THE Duncan Tanner LABOUR PARTY, Cambridge University Press, 1990 Here is the big, solid, scholarly book on which Duncan Tanner was working during the tenure of his Research Fellowship at St Catharine's - a book which challenges established pieties by bringing out Labour's historic frailty as well as its inherent strength. No longer are we presented with a vision of the new party irresistibly breasting the wave of the future. Instead, its impressively deep roots in the values of nineteenth-century radicalism are more apparent. We see here the inadequacy alike of a straight-line version of Labour's rise or of the theory that it was only held in check until the First World War by an unrepresentative franchise. Above all, Tanner's point is not that the Labour Party tried and failed to conform to a Marxist stereotype of a socialist party: instead it was a creature of a far more complex political culture which he explores and explains in its own terms, with a satisfying richness of illustrative detail. P.C. CAMBRIDGE REGIONAL ECONOMIC REVIEW Editors: Gordon Cameron, THE ECONOMIC OUTLOOK FOR THE Barry Moore, Derek Nicholls, REGIONS AND COUNTIES OF THE John Rhodes and Peter Tyler UNITED KINGDOM IN THE 1990S Department of Land Economy, Cambridge 1990 A key feature of the Review is its focus on providing projections of how regional and local economies are likely to grow and evolve during the 1990s. It also explores the implications for central and local governments and companies concerned with the location of economic and social change and the policies which can influence it. The Review will also be of interest to academics who work in this field. Predicting lower overall growth and a continuation of regional divergence, the studies contain a variety of practical policy suggestions. A.G.B. LAND-LOCKED AND GEOGRAPHICALLY DISADVANTAGED S.C. Vasciannie, STATES IN THE INTERNATIONAL LAW OF THE SEA Claredon Press, 1990 By long-established custom and international law, there is a right of transit over the high seas and also a right to fish in these waters. Since the Second World War, these rights have been eroded, as nations extended their territorial seas from the customary 3-mile zone to 12 miles and to 200, or declared exclusive economic zones over specified waters outside the 3-mile zone. With technological advances, oil and gas can be exploited in the "shallow" waters of continental shelves and potentially useful deposits of metalliferous nodules have been found in the ocean deeps. The land-locked nations, and those with but limited coastlines, became increasingly concerned that their rights of access to valuable living and inanimate resources were being steadily reduced. Consequently, several international gatherings wrestled with the problem of delineating rights and responsibilities, culminating in the third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, which resulted in a 1982 Convention. The prime focus of the book is the extent to which the land-locked states and the "geographically disadvantaged" states were able to influence this Conference and the resulting Convention. These countries were able to gain some protection of their rights of access to the ocean's resources, in particular through the

31 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 29 granting of a right of access to exclusive economic zones on an "equitable" basis; but this applies only to the living (i.e. fish) resources. In respect of the non-living resources, only states with a coast line may claim sovereign rights to explore and exploit the resources of the continental shelf. Admittedly, states which exploit the shelf floor beyond 200 miles are supposed to share their revenue, but this seems an ineffectual requirement. This is a scholarly book, written for lawyers by an international lawyer, and former Research Fellow of the College, on a field of law which is continuing to evolve and which is relevant for disciplines such as geography, politics and the economics of development. M.C. SEXUALITY AND THE SENSE OF SELF Andrew Webber IN THE WORKS OF GEORG TRAKL AND The Modern Humanities Research ROBERT MUSIL Association 1990 Andrew Webber (College Lecturer in German) gives with this slightly revised version of his Ph.D dissertation an enlightened and penetrating new reading of the poems of Trakl and the prose works of Musil, two of the most famous Austrian writers of the early 20th. century. What their work has in common thematically is, strangely enough, an incestuous love for their sisters - in the one case as biographical fact, in the other as fictional stimulus. The sister as 'ein Doppelganger im anderen Geschlecht' ('a double of the opposite sex'), in Musil's own words, acts as a complementary and contrastive mirror in these writers' search for self-understanding and a way of transcending the antagonism between the sexes. Weiniger, Freud and Lacan provide Webber with his conceptual framework and via this his intrepid dive into the murky waters of sexual obsession and pathological self-centredness. This scholarly study is intended for the use of both students of Austrian literature and those with an interest in psycho-sexual phenomena. A good grasp of German is essential: love for one's sister is optional. G.H. THE CHAIN OF CHANGE Robert Wardy A STUDY OF ARISTOTLE'S PHYSICS VII C.U.P., Cambridge, 1990 This book is derived from the dissertation which gained the author not only his doctorate but also a Research Fellowship at St Catharine's. In its developed form it is a distinguished example of the current school of Cambridge ancient philosophy in which careful philological examination of the text forms a foundation for detailed discussion of the arguments both in their historical context and in relation to the substantive philosophical issues involved. Thus Wardy provides revised texts of the two versions in which the work is preserved, set side-by-side to aid comparison, and a precise translation similarly arranged, followed by a detailed discussion of their content, Aristotle's examination of how change occurs in the world leading to his doctrine of the unmoved mover. By the end the diligent reader (for this is not an easy book) has been made to think hard about the nature of the Aristotelian corpus and about the philosophical issues raised by the constantly changing nature of the universe in contexts which extend well beyond the Aristotelian.

32 30 St Catharine's College Society Magazine THE COLLEGE CHAPEL This year has seen the arrival of our new Director of Music, Dr Dean Sutcliffe, expert on Haydn, and of a junior Organ Scholar, Andrew Reid, to help the senior Organ Scholar, Rupert Jeffcoat - under them all the choir has continued to flourish and to keep its reputation as one of the leading College choirs in Cambridge after King's and St John's. We have had several outstanding preachers at our Choral Evensongs on Sunday - among them were Dr John Polkinghorne, FRS, President of our neighbouring College of Queens', who must be one of the world's foremost experts on the relation between science and Christianity; Sir Fred Catherwood, formerly Chairman of the British Institute of Management; Frank Field, MP; and the Right Reverend Stephen Sykes, Bishop of Ely. Dr Lionel Wickham, University Lecturer in Divinity, gave an excellent address on our patron saint as the Commemoration Sermon which this year happened appropriately to fall on St Catharine's Day itself. Perhaps the most memorable occasion of the year was the address and, later in the evening, meeting in the Ramsden Room, given by one of the most well-known of all Russian dissidents and leading poet, Irina Ratushinskaya. It was in my first term here as Chaplain that I first heard her speak, shortly after she was released from her labour camp, and it was a great honour, in my last term, to be able to welcome her to our Chapel and College. Just after the end of the Lent Term we had, again, an excellent retreat - this time in a wooded area of Surrey - which was taken by John Mullett, Fellow Commoner. I hope these retreats are now established as a regular event in the Chapel's calender. Any Chaplain must be conscious of how much he owes to the help of others, and, in my case especially, to the Chapel Clerk, Matthew Houghton, and the Sacristan, Robert Atenstaedt who was followed by Timothy Wright who will be Chapel Clerk next year. It's impossible for me to write those words "next year" without being poignantly aware of how rapidly the last five years have passed, since this year sees the end of my time here and my departure for Heidelberg. "Eheu fugaces labuntur anni!" They have been happy years. For my part as Chaplain all I have asked of the College is that it should give me the tools necessary for my job and then let me get on with it. Both of these the College has done and I am grateful.

33 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 31 St Catharine of Alexandria The Rev'd. Dr. Lionel R. Wickham (1954) Lecturer in the Faculty of Divinity A Sermon preached in Chapel at Evensong on the Feast Day of St Catharine, 25th November, The Chaplain told me I was to preach on the Saint. So I took myself to Symeon the Metaphrast, who wrote her martyrdom. You will find it in volume 116 of the Patrologia Graeca. It is not, I think, the oldest account, but it embodies all that will be found in the most ancient versions and adds, so far as I can see, nothing of its own. The Metaphrast unfolds a stirring tale. We are at Alexandria in the days of persecutions, before Constantine became sole emperor and it was a safe place to profess Christian faith. 'When the most impious Maxentius was emperor', he writes, 'the whole empire of the Romans held to the abominable worship of demons. For this Maxentius, presiding on a majestic dais aloft, set forth a decree that all who fell beneath his sway should together accomplish sacrifices to the idols'. A vast throng hurries to fulfil the royal command. The city is crowded with prospective worshippers of every age and condition; the bellowing of the sacrificial animals fills the air. There is one, though, who is unimpressed by the edict: Aikaterina, a young woman, beautiful to look at, royal in birth, wellbred and well versed in learning of all kinds both Christian and Pagan. Christ is the only husband she ever had or would have. For him she kept her soul and her heart of love. Accompanied by her many attendants she comes to Alexandria and confronts Maxentius. Standing on the threshold of the temple where the sacrifices are being enacted, in gentle tones she chides the Emperor. 'You know of yourselves', she protests, 'that such worship, offered to human images, is pagan stupidity and shameful. Does not Diodore the sophist, does not Plutarch, teach you the folly of these things?' At these and the rest of her words making up a lengthy speech, Maxentius was filled with rage, the heat of anger rushed in a flood to the middle of his heart, his voice was extinguished and he could make no response at all. At last, though, he came to himself, and bade the future martyr visit the palace when the sacrifice was over. She entered and introduced herself: 'I am called Aikaterina, I am practised in every branch of scholarship: oratory, philosophy, geometry and all the rest. But I count them all as nothing and have come to be married to Christ, my immortal bridegroom, who spoke through the prophet, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and the understanding of the intelligent will I set at nought".' Let me hasten forward with the tale. The Emperor in argument finds himself unable to oppose the Saint's words. He summons 50 experts to debate the question with her. Such though is the force of her reasonings that they are converted to the faith. Their doom is pronounced. Theirs will be literally a baptism by the fire, to which they were committed on November 17th. Marvel of marvels, when the devout came to collect the sainted ashes in the evening, they find the scholars safe and sound with not a hair of their heads injured. Argument has thus failed. The tyrant now resorts to torture. Aikaterina is stripped of her purple and cruelly beaten; only the flowing blood shows that this is human flesh and not marble, so perduring is her resistance. Even (to cut short the story) the Empress and the Commander of the army along with 200 of his soldiers, are converted by the sight of her constancy and by her holy words. The final threat comes: four, nail-studded wheels are fitted on an axle, and the machine, pulled by ropes, is paraded before the Saint's eyes. Will she yield? Never. The Saint is tied to the engine of torture. But, o wonder, an angel descends and releases her, whilst the wheels roll of their own accord into the infidel crowd. The Emperor now turns all his rage upon his consort, who has interceded for Aikaterina. She and the believing soldiery meet their death on November 24th. On the next day, November 25th, the Saint was led off to the place of martyrdom outside the city, where she is executed. The martyrdom was marked by yet another prodigy: not blood, but milk, poured from the wound, and angels wafted the Saint's body to Mount Sinai. There (though the Metaphrast does not tell us this) her memory is ever to be associated with the great monastery, built in Justinian's reign, and bearing her name. A stirring tale, too good, far too good, to be true. St Catharine's historical value might be calculated as slightly more than that of Mickey Mouse, somewhat less than that of Athos, Porthos and Aramis. At least Dumas did not mix up Louis XIII and Louis XIV. This 'Maxentius' is quite the wrong emperor. And then all those prodigies: so absurdly overdone, you might say. No wonder the bishop of Rome removed the fictive saint from his calender these twenty years ago and more. Ought not a candid preacher, then, to advise the Governing Body to adopt a more realistic dedication - say, 'The Blessed Margaret Thatcher Memorial College'? And if you do not care for that patroness, you might be able to suggest somebody more apt.

34 32 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Well, of course, I could advise that, and urge (what I think it likely you will all agree with) that, in general, we should not confuse religious truth with pious fraud. But it is unlikely that my plea would be noticed. I could be answered that we ought not to remove the fathers' landmarks and perhaps our forebears who gave the dedication might not have been so very disturbed that their patroness was a holy fiction. So, after all, are the cherubs and the seraphs who adorn many a church roof and we, no more than our ancestors did, object to these. We recognize the symbols as marks of holy truths and seek no crude actualities to correspond with them. St Catharine, or rather the legend of Catharine, moved our founding fathers' mind. Catharine has no reality, no history; but the ideal, or rather the composite of ideals her legend presents, has both reality and history. It is not hard to see what the ideals are, to be ourselves moved by them and vibrate, so to say, in tune with them. Catharine is gentle. That is one of the points the Metaphrast brings out clearly. She speaks in soft tones to the Emperor: she does not shout abuse or threaten. She irritates this monster of unfeeling cruelty to the point where he loses all self-control. But that is not Catharine's fault. She happens to have the best argument on every count. And that is due to her learning. Her learning, though remarkable in its wide range (it embraces everything that is part of human knowledge) is not miraculous. We are not told, for example, as we are of St Laurence of Brindisi (a genuine, historical character of modern times) that she learned Hebrew from the lips of the Blessed Virgin Mary in vision. Catharine knows her Plutarch, but in the same sort of way as everybody else: by reading the text, not because it has been supernaturally disclosed. And, moreover, she thinks learning mere dross compared with love of Christ. The life of the intellect has its value, but only as a stage in the conversion of the soul of God and its preparation for eternal life. Intellect is subordinate to will, knowledge of the world to the capacity to change the world through action. Catharine is a martyr who does not so much suffer as act. She sets everything in motion; and if she dies in the end, it is only because that is the best thing to do. This is witness to the death at its most trenchantly active. This is passivity at its most creative. She is chaste, this gentle, learned, world-changing girl, with that chastity both of body and mind in the absence of which no virtue is possible. Without 'integrity' (which is the same as chastity) no good action can happen, for to be without integrity is to be without the very self which thinks and acts by its own norms under the impulse of good. The unchaste body and the unchaste mind can never witness to the truth which is purity itself, for they have sullied and defiled the truth in themselves. But chastity, like patriotism is not enough. Holiness requires of those who approach it, love. Love does not seek its own, love is never vain, love is never violent or rude, love seeks only the good of others never their hurt, love is without revenge. In Catharine's veins there flows the milk of human kindness, as the final miricle, with a touch of almost conscious naivety, sets her story before us. Hers is a warm love for Christ, a love which leads to deeds of extravagant boldness and endurance. Yet it is a love consonant with tender forgiveness and large charity; that love which flows with a strong and constant heart-beat; that love which we first learn to know as mother's love but afterwards, if we live the life of faith, we extend by imitation to all. This tender, loving courage overflows in forgiveness for those who sought its desecration: that is the message of the last scene in the drama. Do you not feel the religious reality in this fiction? Surely you will share with our founders in reverence for the ideals which come to expression in this tale. It was good and wise to make this imaginative projection the symbol under which the corporate life of this college is to be patterned. For we are to seek knowledge. Not for its own sake selfishly, but as a prelude to action which changes the world. We are to express truth with inner integrity, enduring to the end, if so be, in the face of violence and hostility. We are to love God and to respond with warmth and tenderness of heart to others. These maxims, these principles of living, symbolized in a legend we need not be ashamed of, may properly motivate us, as surely their neglect may fittingly rebuke us, members together of this College, as we are.

35 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 33 THE KITCHEN MODERNISATION Rear Admiral A.M. Norman R.N. - The Bursar For a number of years we have been patching up the ageing equipment in the College kitchens, replacing where necessary. However it was a constant struggle to keep things going and became increasingly expensive. I suppose that the final straw which made us look more clearly to the future was the complete breakdown of the main fridge which had done noble service for some twenty years plus. Another factor which concentrated our minds was the regular visits by the Environmental Health Officer and his comments on the kitchens. We therefore took a deep breath and decided to start again, virtually from scratch, and design and construct a new kitchen, new store rooms and staff rooms, loading bay and garbage disposal area, all to be up to the high standards now required by the Environmental Health regulations. So on Sunday 30th September the project commenced with the lifting into the Main Court over the top of C/D staircases, one large and one small portacabin containing fully fitted out portable kitchens. The challenge started before dawn and was completed without incident by breakfast time, much to the relief of the Bursar (always confident!) and a number of others who believed it was not possible. A few days after the 100 ton crane which had carried out the lift had departed we heard that the sewers in Queens' Lane had collapsed, but the Bursar was reassured to hear that the collapse had occurred some months before! The College chefs provided an excellent service throughout the Michaelmas Term from the portable kitchens, so much so that, apart from the postponement of the larger College dinners, life continued uninterupted. Meanwhile Sutcliffes Design, our kitchen contractors, commenced work on 9th October with a planned completion date of 21st December when the College closed for Christmas. Work continued apace throughout the term and although doubts were expressed as to whether they would meet the end date a preliminary 'final' inspection a few days before that gingered the contractors up and the work was completed on time (and to our contract cost) by noon on 21st December. We had to wait until the College re-opened in January to see if it all worked - and by and large it did; the snags were few. The Master formally opened the kitchens on 3rd January 1991, cutting the ribbon in the new very smart servery and the first meal was served that day. This left the small problem of lifting the two portacabins once more over the rooftop and on to the transporter in Queens' Lane. The planned date was 6th January and this time a 140 ton crane appeared around the corner from Silver Street and drove into Queens' Lane (an inch or two to spare). However this time the additional hazard was that a good strong gale was blowing. As the length of the large portacabin was greater than the width of Queens' Lane this could have led to interesting consequences. The crane crew decided to wait for a lull in the wind (down to around Force 6!) and then with great skill and dexterity lifted the portacabins over the roof with a suggestion from the Bursar that if they were going to hit any building on the way down could it be a part of Queens' and not St. Catharine's, However, it all went without a scratch and the huge crane and the long transporters drove out of Queens' Lane and into Silver Street without even needing to reverse to and fro. The cost of all this? Well, we will not see a great deal of change from 520,000 but we believe that it has been very well worthwhile and certainly the College catering staff (no longer catering contractors) are delighted. I hope that all who come to this year's dinner in September will not only enjoy the food produced in the kitchens, but also will take the opportunity to go and have a look around. You would be most welcome.

39 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 37 Obituaries MICHAEL JOHN CAREY Michael Carey (1981) was a fine oarsman and tennis player and represented both Oxford and Cambridge at golf. A traditional medical career seemed to await him. He was, however, an insatiable traveller and completed a solo trip from Cape Town to Cairo, and an overland trek across Asia and was a member of the Mexico earthquake medical relief team. On an exploration of Irian Jaya he contracted a tropical illness that resulted in a long stay in hospital and he subsequently left for convalescence in Australia. He soon began to work again, running preventative health programmes in the North Australian islands and working on the Cambodian border training the Khmer in basic medical skills. He was then sent to China by the Save the Children Fund, where he struggled with the authorities to establish a health programme in Yunnan province. Michael had a great zest for life. His stated ambition was to play golf in every country of Asia. Shortly before his death he married Tania, who survives him. JMW, GDS From BMJ Volume May 1991 ROBERT S. HARDIE Bob Hardie, whose bequest to the College is noted elsewhere in this issue, grew up in Nebraska and had distinguished himself at school and university there before coming as an older student to St. Catharine's in 1949 to read Economics. As an affiliated student he was able to complete his degree in two years. Graduating in 1951 he joined the Foreign Service of the U.S.A. and was posted to Manila. After some years in the Service he left to enter academic life as Professor of Economics at the South West Missouri State University where he remained until retirement in At one a scholar and a lover of the outdoors, he was an avid reader and a keen fisherman, sharing these enthusiasms with Tom Henn who had admitted him. St. Catharine's had a profound influence on him; throughout his life he had a love of literature and his years at Cambridge were among his happiest memories. A warm, hospitable man he remained brave and cheerful even in his last years when the death of his wife was followed almost immediately by his own serious and, in the end fatal, illness. E.B.S. PROFESSOR JOHN HEADING Professor John Heading who died on 3 January was Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University College of Wales from 1968 until his retirement in September 1989 Professor Heading was educated at the City of Norwich School and St. Catharine's College, Cambridge. From 1943 to 1946 he was on war service, working on the installation and maintenance of continential telephone repeater stations. He went to Cambridge in 1946, with an Open Exhibition in Mathematics, and took a First Class in all three parts of the Mathematical Tripos. He then spent three years as a research student in the Cavendish Laboratory, and was awarded the degree of PhD in 1953 for his work in the field of theoretical ionospheric radio propagation. Before coming to Aberystwyth Dr Heading held teaching posts in the University of London (at West Ham College of Technology) and at the University of Southampton as Reader in Applied Mathematics. He was a Fellow of the Cambridge Philosophical Society and a member of the London Mathematical Society. Professor Heading was head of the Department of Applied Mathematics until its merger with the departments of Pure Mathematics and Statistics in FROM O.C. W. ABER YSTWYTH PROFESSOR STANLEY JADWIN KAHRL Born in New York, where his father was a Professor of English, Stanley Kahrl came to Caths in He rowed for the College, winning an oar as a member of the First Lent Boat in 1957, the second May Boat in 1958, and coach in the Third Lent Boat in 1958 to win their oars. (Ten years later he returned whilst on sabbatical and won a third oar as a member of the Fourth May Boat in 1969). He took first-class honours in the English tripos.

40 38 St Catharine's College Society Magazine In 1958 he went to Harvard to do a Ph.D. His thesis, an edition of The Merrie Tales of the Mad Men of Gotam, was published by the Renaissance English Text Society in He also edited a collection of papers on Old English poetry (1968) and wrote a widely respected study, Traditions of Medieval English Drama (1973). In 1977 he published a facsimile of British Library manuscript Cotton Vespasian D. VIII, a manuscript of the N-town plays. He also wrote many influential articles and short studies and produced a television series on early English drama. Stanley Kahrl taught for several years in the University of Rochester before moving to Ohio State University in 1969, where he spent most of his career. He was Director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and was said to have been a "generous but demanding teacher, one who filled his classes with his own enthusiasm for the subject and communicating it to others". Latterly he became interested in the experience of war, particularly the American Civil War, and recruited a platoon of black students for the re-enactment of the engagement that formed the central episode in the recent film Glory, in which he had a small part. It was during a re-enactment of the battle of Franklin, after a day of stenuous outdoor life he enjoyed so much, that he died in his tent during the night. He was a man of deep, but unobtrusive religious belief, who combined features from both Chaucer's Parson and Clerk of Oxenford; of Stanley Kahrl one could also say: "And gladly wolde he lerne and gladly teche". J.G.K. Part of the above is quoted from a memorial minute from the Medieval Academy of America by John Leyerle. J.L. JOHANNES VAN LOHUIZEN Johannes van Lohuizen came to St. Catharine's in He was born in Haarlem in the Netherlands in 1919 and survived not only the German occupation of his country but also arrest and deportation. He came, having taken his Doctorate at Utrecht in 1946, and having married an old school friend, Johanna van Leeuw, in 1943, a marriage which began a happy and working partnership for forty years. His wife was later appointed to the Faculty of Oriental Studies in Cambridge and in 1958 Johannes wrote his PhD Dissertation on the Dutch East India Company and Mysore, They returned to Amsterdam in 1959 when Johanna took up the Chair of South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology and Johannes worked for twenty years in the University Library in Amsterdam. After the death of his wife in 1983 Johannes returned to Cambridge and took up residence in Brooklands House in 1985, where he lived until his death, working "quietly and unobtrusively" in various capacities as Treasurer and Librarian for The Ancient India and Iran Trust. Friends who met him on the morning of 12th December 1990 found him cheerful and well. He died suddenly of heart failure in the Fitzwilliam Museum that afternoon. Notes extracted from the address at the funeral by Dr. F. R. Allchin KENNETH ALAN MacGOWAN In later life K.A.M. was staff inspector for Modern Languages for the Inner London Education Authority. At the fall of France in 1940 he founded in Liverpool the Franco-British Society to provide cultural and social contacts with the Free French Forces. Later, in collaboration with French universities, he initiated annual courses for ILEA teachers of French. He was awarded the insignia of chevalier de la Legion d'honneur and Commander de l'ordre des Palmes Academiques. J.M. SIR DAVID PIPER, CBE. Sir David died on the 29th December 1990 at the age of 72. He matriculated at St. Catharine's in 1937, went on to serve in the Indian Army in 1939 and was a prisoner in Japanese hands between 1942 and Piper commenced work at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in 1946 and was appointed Director in In 1967 he came to the Fitzwilliam Museum as Director and in 1973 became the first Director of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford,

41 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 39 Sir David Piper By courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery. until retirement in He was Slade Professor of Fine Art in Oxford, and in Cambridge both Clarke ( ) and Rede (1983) lecturer. His writings began with The English Face (1957) which was twice republished, and with the Catalogue of seventeenth century portraits for the National Portrait Gallery. He was also interested in topography. The Companion Guide to London (1964) was the product of his "investigation of the city's incidental and multitudinous littleness" and remains the best single volume on the City and West End that exists. Piper was also a novelist and his account of his wartime experience, Trial by Battle (1959) has been twice republished. He was a regular and extensive reviewer of books on the figurative art and of literature. Piper had a delightful allusive humour and a remarkable independence of mind. He was also an intensively private person and he published as a newspaper essay a most moving account of his return to family life after the war. He is survived by his wife Anne and four children. To the Fitzwilliam Museum Piper brought metropolitan expectations. His directorship in London had enabled him greatly to increase the resources of the Gallery, in staffing, buildings, scholarship and public interest. He tackled the same problems in Cambridge and it was the enormous effort of fund raising for new buildings at the Fitzwilliam which eventually tempted him to Oxford as the first Director of the Ashmolean Museum, where he found better resources and a more realistic understanding of his talents. He won in both Cambridge and Oxford the respect and devotion of his staff because his humane understanding resolved problems, his museum exerience gave authority to his decisions and his visual and literary sensibilities were the perfect means for expressing the purpose of such important galleries. JGP THOMAS CORNEY RAVENSDALE, C.M.G. Tom entered the Levant Consular Service when he came down from Cambridge in the late 1920s and his first post was in Symrna in Turkey in 1928 in the growing nation under Kemal Ataturk and after at Ankara in the British Embassy. In 1934 he moved to Cairo as Oriental Secretary, where he started his love affair with the Arab peoples and the Arab language. He became a distinguished Arabist at a time when the new nations of Arabia and the Middle East were being forged out of the remnants of the Ottoman Empire. The Foreign Office staff in those countries was then very active in cooperating with the nascent governments to develop stable states. He remained in Cairo until 1937 and then moved to Baghdad, where he spent part of the second World War. German influence was strong, which led to a revolt of some Arab generals who occupied Baghdad and laid siege to the British Embassy throughout the month of May It was said that the besieging forces could not understand the flippancy of the British who, under threat of death, continued their games of cricket and training their polo ponies in the Embassy grounds. Tom then returned to Cairo in 1942, just in time to experience the most intense period of the African campaign, prior to and during the battle of El Alamein when Rommel was on the doorstep of Cairo. He served there as Oriental Counsellor for the next nine years, which meant acquiring an intimate knowledge of all things Arabic in that growing state. After spells as Political Adviser in Benghazi and the British Embassy in Libya, he became Ambassador to the Dominican Republic from 1955 to He then came into the orbit of the French language and of French culture by becoming Ambassador to the Republics of Dahomey, Niger, Upper Volta and the Ivory Coast from 1960

42 40 St Catharine's College Society Magazine to This French connection, if I could call it that, was cemented when he remet and married a childhood acquaintance from an earlier visit to Les Andelys, Magdy, with whom he shared his last years of service in Majorca and since then twenty five years of great happiness. From personal experience I know that during his retirement years he continued to use his Arabic in assisting in translations of the Koran. As a committed member of the Church of England, he was deeply interested in the extraordinary developments in the ecumenical field between the Catholic and Protestant Churches over the past twenty years, which enabled him and his wife to share their religious faith and upbringing in a way unthinkable to previous generations. He shared intensely in the triumph of the visit of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Abbey of Bee Hellouin after a gap of centuries, from whence had come two Archbishops of Canterbury after the Norman invasion of England. The text is part of an address by J.P. Taylor, given at the Funeral of T.C. Ravensdale at L'Eglise St Sauveur, Les Andelys, on 29th December MARTIN SPENCER If ever there were what we in Scotland called a "lad o' pairts', that man would have been Martin Spencer, quintessential Englishman, bon viveur, gifted amateur musician and actor, skilled climber of the late and much-lamented Bull Gate which in the wee sma' hours offered a somewhat hazardous way into the hallows of Caths when it was still a sin to be out of college after midnight, and (almost in his spare time) reader of English. He did National Service in Hong Kong, where he became proficient in Chinese; he became head of Longman's African school books' division; he was Publisher to the University of Manchester between 1973 and 1987, and thereafter Director of Edinburgh University Press. But perhaps one of the best illustrations of his gift for - how could I best describe it? - whimsy was his idea, as an Englishman of Catholic background, to apply for the directorship of Acair, the Gaelic publisher in that bastion of the very presbyterian Wee Free Church - Stornoway in the Western Isles. It was at St Catharine's that his sheer joie de vivre infected all who knew him. From his eyrie in Z staircase he organised (never smiling, of course) a series of hilarious japes of which all of us were at one time or another the hapless victim. And yes, when one of the tutors caught him attempting to abseil down Bull Gate after his return from London on the Milk Train at some ungodly hour in the morning, he was taken to the tutor's room, fined 6s 8d, and subsequently drank most of the bottle of port which the selfsame tutor offered him by way of solace.

WRIGHT From Leighton Park School, Reading, of which he was later to be a Governer for thirty five years, Kenneth Wright came to St Catharine's in He read English first then changed to Economics and took his B.A. in He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1937 and in 1940 joined the firm of Dearden, Farrow where he became a senior partner and remained until retirement in 1976, He took an active part in professional matters. Before his election to the Council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 1959, he had for nine years been a member of the Committee of the London and District Society of Chartered Accountants and its Chairman in He served on most of the main committees of the Institute during his period on the Council which lasted until Earlier he had been elected first as Vice-President of the Institute and then President in He wrote a number of manuals on accounting practice and, in 1970 with two others, Financial Planning for Individuals which reached its 3rd edition in An active member of the St Catharine's College Society, he was a Trustee of the Quincentenery Appeal Fund and for many years Honorary Auditor of the Appeal accounts. In retirement at Ightham in Kent he pursued interests in gardening and philately including writing on the postal history of Rhodesia. T.G.C.

43 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 41 Food Chain PROFESSOR LORD SOULSBY Lord Soulsby is Professor of Animal Pathology. He was elected a member of St Catharine's in 1956 aand Fellow of Wolfson in 1978 and readers will recall his life Peerage was reported in last years edition on p15. Give us this day Our daily bread or daily supply of meat or meat products! But we generally wonder little as to how the bacon, sausage, kebab, roast or other concoction of meat arrives at the meat counter of the supermarket or the local butcher or indeed the kitchen counter. The recent concerns about Salmonella bacteria in eggs and poultry and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease) as well as the use of the various "hormones" to promote enhanced growth have brought into focus the question of food safety, the role of animal welfare in food production systems and the ethical justification of introducing foreign genetic material into our domestic animals. Some readers may well remember the dark days of World War II when farmers struggled to provide the essential rations of the nation and sailors risked their lives and many were lost in food convoys across the Atlantic. Then British agriculture was unable to feed the nation. Now not only can it do so but it exports agricultural produce and contributes to the EEC lakes and mountains of surplus foods. And this with a reduced workforce and a smaller national acreage! Over the 50 years since the start of WWII many events have contributed to this change of food producing capacity. Firstly, sources of energy have increased, once farm operations were serviced by one horse power per man, represented by the million horses the land itself supported, now the energy available is 100 times greater per man by way of machines and tractors. Other components of this change include improved fertilisers and their increased use (40 times greater) and pesticides and herbicides, many unknown 50 years ago. On the livestock side all animal products have increased significantly in the amount produced but particularly in pig meat and poultry meat and this enhanced production has been achieved largely through intensification of systems. However these while producing food at competitive prices have also raised problems of the welfare of animals and the wholesomeness and safety of the end product. The food chain starts with the breeding of animals and for centuries breeders have been improving livestock for meat, milk and wool production. One of the greatest historical developments in breeding occured during the Agricultural Revolution, producing the forerunners of highly productive breeds of today. A major, though more recent development, greatly to influence livestock production, especially on the dairy side was that of artificial insemination, a technique now practised in all countries and responsible for upgrading livestock on a scale unimaginable before its inception. This allowed the selection of high quality producing livestock, progeny testing and especially the introduction of new blood lines into countries through the use of frozen semen, where import of livestock would be difficult or impossible because of disease. The modern counterpart to this is embryo transfer where upgrading of livestock production can be achieved even more rapidly than by AI by using surrogate mothers for embryos of proven dams and sires. A further development is in vitro fertilisation of embryos and one of the latest developments is the production of embryos of known sex. The ultimate development in breeding is the insertion of new genetic material into germ cells to produce animals that grow more rapidly, provide food tailored to the customers' demand or to produce medicinal products such as human blood clotting factor in milk. These are animals made to measure; their use is likely to increase; likewise the ethical debate as to their acceptability is likely to go on for some time! Following breeding comes rearing and it is here that the food chain goes through the intensification of livestock management which has caused so much comment. The major distributors of food, the supermarkets for example, are well aware that healthy animals under good welfare conditions are an important part of quality control. If disease enters the food chain quality control leaves it! In the rearing process the young animal is the most susceptible to the effects of poor feeding, poor housing and disease and these may be particular prominent in intensive systems. To counter this young stock may be reared under the continuous or intermittent cover of medicinal products to circumvent disease. Examples being coccidiosis in chickens, antibiotics to control intestinal disorders in pigs or antiparasitic drugs to control intestinal worms in lambs.

44 42 St Catharine's College Society Magazine The time between birth or hatching and the table may be a few weeks or months only and production methods may be so finely tuned and profit margins so narrow that there is little or no room for delays in harvesting the crop of animals for the market. This is the factory farming so much abused and yet a system that does ensure a standard product at a competitive price. Management systems that avoid disease provide greater assurance that marketing deadlines are met and growth promoters may further sharpen the competitive edge. But now concern for human health enters the equation with dangers, real or imagined, due for example to antibiotic resistant Salmonella, BSE due to feeding animal protein to cattle, bovine somatotrophin (BST) which increases body growth Lord Soulsby and milk production. The use of anabolic steroids in livestock production is an excellent example of where political considerations outweigh scientific fact, since the findings of an expert committee set up by EEC to consider the possible effects of anabolic steroids on man, were ignored when the Community banned their use! Factory farming, intensive systems, have been vilified by the media. The worst excesses have or are being attended to, but the question posed by the alternatives to intensive livestock production is whether animal welfare will be as well attended to by the alternative systems as the intensive? Some would reject outright all intensive systems as unacceptable from the welfare point of view. However while it may be very pastoral to see animals grazing green pasture they may fall prey to many infections of bacterial, viral and parasitic nature. Disease is a major component of poor welfare and its prevention is important in maintaining good welfare The Farm Animal Welfare Council has laid down guidelines and produced Codes which will do much to improve the welfare of food producing livestock and these are now widely accepted by the farming community.. From rearing and production we now turn to slaughter and the point in the chain when animals become meat. Only recently has the welfare of animals during transport to slaughter and in the slaughter premises been given serious attention. To say that slaughter is a very traumatic end to life would be understating the issue, but this trauma may well start long before the stunning and bleeding out of the animal. The herding together of alien social groups the noise of markets, the stress of transport and the final approach to the slaughter pen must all be disturbing events. There is little evidence that animals are distressed at the sight of a companion being slaughtered but the accompanying disturbance from the pleasant existence of a farm is likely to be very distressing. Attention to transport and animal handling at the slaughter place has a direct effect on the quality of the subsequent carcase. For this reason alone good welfare is important but new legislation will ensure that the welfare of animals at slaughter is specifically attended to by a The traditional view of a good butcher is that he should slaughter cleanly and hang the carcase such that a tender meat product results. But this requires two to three days and whether the meat is destined for a meat product such as pies, sausages or joints, why wait tor 2 to 3 days. Therefore flesh may be removed from bones by "hot boning" which may result in up to 2% increased yield of meat. But there are problems with this in that the rapid chilling of beef before effective "setting" occurs may lead to toughness of meat. This can be overcome by the electrical stimulation of carcases while still warm (which increases the rate of glycolosis and the ph levels) so that meat can be rapidly cooled following the boning out process. Following boning out, meat may then reformed into a variety of textures, it may be coloured with dyes and spiced and made ready for the microwave oven of the busy executive. The market for preformed meat dishes grows year by year as does the mechanisms by which meat is harvested from the bone for example, by powerful jets, and then reformed into steaks, chops and the like. It is in these processes where contamination may occure unless particular caution is exercised. The final stages of the food chain are the distribution, display and sale of meat and meat products. Much is done within one or two days of slaughter or harvest and to ensure good

45 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 43 quality control the soundest hygiene procedures are followed. But it must be recognised that food provides an excellent medium for the multiplication of various harmful organisms and whatever the food retailer may do to ensure a wholesome product, this effort can be so easily undone by careless handling, insufficient cooking or refrigeration in the home. Perhaps some day much of our meat will come only from flocks or herds certified free of certain infections, as indeed occurred with milk from cows free of tuberculosis and towards which there is now an increasing trend on the part of the major food purveyors. The food chain, ending up with our daily bread or daily meat, stretches from conception to consumption. It is a testimony to the skill and attention of our breeders, growers, butchers and retailers that we have a ready supply of wholesome, safe and satisfying meat, let us not trespass the bounds of culinary hygiene when we cook it and eat it.

47 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 45 The Chapel Choir in Poland, July 1990 PETER LE HURAY Formerly President of the College and Director of Studies in Music When the College went 'mixed', some ten years ago the choir rapidly became something that was worth listening to. So it was only natural that it should begin to stretch its wings abroad. 'Abroad' in the first place (if I remember correctly) was Wells Cathedral - the incumbent organ scholar (Tim Venvell) having contacts there that welcomed the advent of a Cambridge college choir to sing the services while the resident cathedral choir was on holiday. The venture was so successful that members of the following year's choir (notably David Bayton, Diana Henderson and Paul Baumann) managed between them to negotiate a trip to Italy. We careered down there in minibuses, arrriving breathless to sing our first concert in - of all places - Venice, a lovely, resonant baroque church. Dr Ian Clarke did a sterling job enticing a sizeable audience into the building. I knew that the tour was going to be a success when at the end of the concert an enthusiastic Bavarian came to thank us and to assure us that no German choir could equal us! He was lecturing at a music summer school in Venice on Renaissance choral music. Since then the choir has played away more than at home. It has been twice more to Italy, once to Germany and Switzerland, twice to France and once (if it can be called abroad), to Ireland. It has also been heard in the cathedrals of Canterbury, St. Paul's, Durham, Exeter and Oxford. All those tours have been memorable in their different ways and very educational for the members of the choir (one year I remember discovering to my surprise that something like 25% of them had never been abroad before!). This year's tour was however exceptional. When I began to set it up in the summer of 1989, little did I guess that events in eastern Europe would be so momentous. We had enjoyed since 1981 a succession of academic visitors to St. Catharine's from Poland, all of whom had been tremendous value in the SCR, full of fun, anxious to participate in everything that was going on, and shockingly outspoken in their observations of the political system at home. I felt from the start that this was certainly a country that we should if possible visit, particularly as the Polish church had continued to be a very powerful force in Polish life throughout the communist occupation. The moment came when in discussions with our most recent Polish guest - Dr Jacek Urbaniec - it emerged that he was keen to see whether something could be arranged. He accordingly contacted the manager of his university choir at the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, and in due course an invitation came from Krakow suggesting an 'exchange' of choirs; the idea was that we should visit Poland in 1990 and the Jagiellonian choir, England in Then communications became difficult. Letters took six weeks or more to travel, and the telephone lines were constantly engaged. Shortly after Christmas our Polish hosts gave us to understand that savage cuts had made it impossible for them to carry out their part of the arrangement. They would still be happy to fix concerts and trips for us but we would have to pay. After only a brief discussion the choir agreed to press ahead, and everyone threw 200 into the kitty to take care of rail tickets there and back (the cheapest way by far) and the modest costs of board in Poland. We also developed our contacts in Warsaw; the principal one was through Simon Proctor, a third-year music student member of the choir who had spent time at the academic church (attached to the university) in the previous two summers. A secondary contact proved to be the organist of Warsaw cathedral, with whom I had corresponded earlier in the year. Poor communications made it impossible to arrange in detail the programmes that we were to sing in Poland (much English choral music is unusual in that it requires elaborate organ accompaniment - not every church abroad has the right sort of instrument positioned close enough to the choir to make the combination of organ and choir possible). So the choir met for two solid days at St. Catharine's before setting out in order to rehearse a very extensive repertory - sufficient music, in fact, to cover all emergencies. On Saturday, June 30 we staggered out of bed at 5.30a.m., downed an inadequate breakfast in C4 (the President's rooms), shouldered our rucksacks and set off for the station. Thirty-six hours later we were in Warsaw, having enjoyed a sunburning crossing from Harwich to the Hook, and an endless, no-couchette night in a train of uncertain age. Five of Simon's Polish friends were at the station to meet us. The local buses were all too full to cope with a further twentyseven bodies and baggage - so a procession of ancient taxis raced off to our hostel on the outskirts of Warsaw, formerly the palace of the Bishop of Warsaw but now looked after by one and a half nuns and a dog. The girls bedded down on floor mattresses and sleeping bags in one

48 46 St Catharine's College Society Magazine large dormitory (where all the rehearsals were subsequently held); the men enjoyed proper beds on which to stretch their sleeping bags, and smaller rooms. Concerts are concerts, and little need be said about them, except that we flew the English flag, and were enthusiastically received in various venues, ranging from the cathedral in Warsaw and the principal church in Krakow, to spontaneous eruptions outside Chopin's birthplace and down a saltmine (of which, more anon). The tour had however been arranged to allow sufficient time for sightseeing and for talking. In these respects our hosts in Warsaw and Krakow had done us proud. The very first event that had been planned for us was a visit to the parliament buildings there. On paper the idea didn't look particularly appealing. In the event, however, it could not have been a better start to our tour. One of our Warsaw hosts worked there as a highpowered secretary (this is how we managed to gain entry - a great privilege as we later discovered). It was the chance for us all to learn how problems of government and of the economy were being tackled. In the west we had tended to think of the Polish democratic movement as Solidarity. Already however, the Poles were moving onward. In the opinion of many, Walensa was too impatient, and had overplayed his hand in aspiring to the Presidency. Surprisingly perhaps Jaruzelsky (whom we think of as the one who imposed martial law during the early days of Solidarity) was by now recognised as a stabilising force. Indeed the opinion was that he would in a democratic election stand a good chance against Walensa, for many Poles are worried that the country may easily slide into Rumanian bloodshed if things move too fast. It is difficult for westerners to realise just how mountainous are the political problems there. Every institution of government has to be set up from scratch; there is nothing on which to build - no democratic system of local government, nor any freely elected national assembly. To be sure there is already in place an elected upper house (opinions varied as to whether the elections for this were truly democratic), but only one third of the lower house has yet been voted into office: the other two thirds still owes its existence to communist-party and tradeunion 'elections'. The lower house is primarily responsible for promulgating policy; the upper house or senate has the power of veto. This in part explains the impatience of some Poles for change. As far as the economy is concerned there was some optimism that aspects of industrial production had already begun to benefit from 'privatisation' policies. Even so, the 50/50 balance between workers and 'administrators' suggested that there was still much to do. And while the shops everywhere are well stocked, the take-it-or-leave-it casual disdain of the shop assistants would in this country have led to instant dismissal. No doubt their attitude stemmed from the knowledge that just about everything in the shops was out of reach of the pockets of most Poles. Dr Erdman, the cathedral organist, told us that he had to work for more than an hour to earn enough for a small loaf. A rail ticket to London and back took four month's work. Perhaps the most intractable economic problem is that of food production. We were amazed as we rolled across the country (Poland literally means 'lands of fields') to see that something like 75% of the land is still farmed in strips - very much like it was in England before the enclosures began. Clearly, the very harvesting of minute strips of land is uneconomic (most peasant holdings are no more than five hectares in size). How then to establish larger units? The natural process would be to create highly paid jobs in industry that would attract people off the land (a third of the population still work on the land). But this will be a slow process, and there is much concealed unemployment in the cities to soak up before that begins to happen. Disparities in living standards between town and country are already causing considerable disquiet; indeed one day that we were on a sightseeing trip, farmers blockaded the main roads in protest, from midday to 2p.m. Even so, the Poles seem to have a natural resilience, and a sense of fun that enables them to forgive, if not forget. Our most moving trip, in fact, was to Auschwitz, where we were guided (very quietly and unemotionally) by someone who had been closely related to a prisoner there. Poland has been torn apart time and again through the centuries. Auschwitz is only perhaps one of the more recent reminders of this. It was there that a hundred or more professors from the Jagiellonian University were executed soon after the Germans invaded Poland. It was there that well over 400,000 political prisoners met their end. And of course it was there that some 4,000,000 Jews of all nationalities were gassed. The sight of thousands of toothbrushes, spectacle frames and shoes is a shocking reminder of the coldblooded calculation that lay behind this, humanity's greatest crime against itself. Little less shocking was the sight of gigantic holes bored into the one remaining wall of the royal palace in Warsaw, evidence of the grim way in which the Germans had prepared to dynamite the old city when they finally pulled out in The city had no strategic function. It was simply flattened out of sheer, bestial spite.

49 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 47 Enough however of all this, for there was so much to enjoy there. There was an amazing visit to the oldest saltmine still being worked - mining began some two hundred years before Woodlark founded St. Catharine's. The workings are vast. We saw only a section of the seventeenth and eighteenth century mine: endless passages, leading to 'rooms' of all shapes and sizes, one of which was some 200' in height. The most extraordinary one of all was a vast 18th.c. chamber as big as a large parish church, which the miners had developed into a chapel. They had carved out of the rock salt, baroque pillars, a high altar, and wall carvings, including a remarkable bas-relief of Leonardo's 'Last Supper'. On arriving there, we found a large American choir calling itself the 'North Country Singers' in full wobble (the American National anthem, of course). When they eventually finished we retaliated with a 'look-no-music' performance of Stanford's Beati quorum via, which the composer wrote for Trinity College, Cambridge. Stanford would have been amused at the idea of his Latin piece being sung 400' underground to an American choir in a Polish saltmine! We were rapturously applauded. If the choir were asked to say what they had enjoyed most, the answer would probably have been two things. One was the singing of Sunday evening Mass in the magnificent 15th.century church of St.Mary in Krakow - the hugh church was full to hear William Byrd's Mass for Five Voices, and afterwards a recital of music by Ireland, Stanford, Harris and Britten. There was general agreement that they had excelled themselves. The other was a 'rafting' trip on a magnificent stretch of the river that divides Poland from Czechoslovakia in the south. The canyon-like terrain was very reminiscent of Josemite National Park, near San Francisco. I wondered at the time whether there would be enough survivors for the remaining parts of the musical tour to be completed. Miraculously no one went overboard - nor indeed did anyone lose anything or get lost during the entire tour - a feat of man-management that only our unobtrusively and super-efficient choir secretary, Tanya Wicks could have accomplished! We have made many new friends in Poland as a result of the trip. Undoubtedly the most unexpected friends were those that resulted from the attempt at a pub crawl on our first night in Warsaw. The idea was to find a television set that would show the world cup (England v. the Cameroons). Jonathan Stock-Heskith, our graduate bass in Holy Orders, had been mugging up his Polish for some months, and managed to make himself understood to a small boy who was playing at the foot of one of the ever-present high-rise blocks in which the townsfolk live. The boy dashed off (frightened, as we mistakenly thought), only to return a couple of minutes later, beckoning the party up to his flat. There, some dozen bodies spent a cramped evening cheering England and eating and drinking the refreshments that the Polish mother insisted on providing. We fortunately were able to take back a couple of days later as we were leaving, gifts that we had brought with us, knowing that they were in short supply: fresh coffee, chocolate, tee shirts of Cambridge University and tights: the family was overwhelmed. And on the last night in Warsaw the entire choir squeezed itself into Martin's five-roomed flat to be entertained to food and drink. The noisy party eventually broke up at 2.30a.m. (the neighbours had been warned). Currently we are trying to raise the wherewithal to invite the Jagiellonian choir to England next year. It looks as though they may be able to use their university bus to get here, if we can send them an official invitation, thus bypassing the crippling fares on public transport. But they could not begin to afford to live here. They worked so hard for us, though, and were in every way so welcoming that we very much hope that we can raise the wind. Perhaps an indirect result of our tour will be appreciated by the college bursar and the college steward, for after residing in university accommodation in Krakow (clean, but cramped and spartan) and after eating university food (wholesome but very little variety and absolutely no choice) choir members will certainly not be complaining about such matters during the coming year. Come to think of it, why not ship the entire undergraduate community out there for a week before the start of the new academic year... it might work wonders!

50 48 St Catharine's College Society Magazine John Ray Society President: Sarah R. Cook Secretary: Sarah L. Sturt Societies This year the Society has been particularly active. The first week of term witnessed a hugely successful squash with additional book sale for those with academics in mind! It was also an opportunity for introducing the Freshers to their more senior, if slightly drunken, counterparts. The Michaelmas and Lent terms produced two Society talks. The first was given by Dr Nick Galwey entitled 'Wildlife and agriculture - Is there room for both in Kenyan drylands?' The second talk by Ian Willis, given in conjunction with the Steers Society was an interesting and informative talk on glaciers. Both were well attended, although the lack of Fresher interest was noticeable. Hopes are high for a stimulating and informative 1992, with several meetings under negotiation. * * John Ray (1964) * * Members, past and present, of the John Ray Society will be interested to know that a lecture on their patron was delivered to the Cambridge Philosophical Society by Professor William T. Shearn on 26th November The lecture was entitled "John Ray Cambridge's and Britain's most celebrated seventeenth century naturalist: his life, work and present relevance" Law Society President: Richard Martin Secretary: Clare Sheridan Treasurer: Sikin Mohamed This year has been a disappointing one for the law society in college. Out of three meetings planned, two had to be cancelled. Sir Geoffrey Pattie MP was to have come and addressed the society early on in the year on Governmental aspects of law. However this had to be cancelled due to a clash with a University Law Society meeting in college on the same evening, announced only a fortnight beforehand. In November Mr Marc Weller, a research fellow in International Law in college, addressed the society on the International Law implications of the Gulf Crisis as it then was. The meeting took place on the eve of the UN decision effectively to sanction the use of force. It was an extremely informative paper. Our third planned speaker was unavailable because the crisis turned into a war and he was called out to head the BBC news team initially based in Baghdad. The annual dinner was however a great success, kindly sponsored once again by Allen & Overy. The speaker was Mr Patrick Elias QC and with several supervisors able to attend, the evening was much enjoyed by all. Two drinks parties in the Michaelmas term also went down well. Thanks should be given to Miss Ferran and Professor Baker for their help and support throughout the year. Medical Society President: Oily Wiseman This has been another exciting and fun-packed year in the life of the St Catharine's College Medical Society. The Annual Dinner was the highlight, where the guest speaker was Dr Celia Duff, the Area Community Health Adviser to the East Anglia Health Authority. Other events included the "Mince Pies and Mulled Wine" Christmas party and the annual Garden Party. Some interesting speaker meetings have been organised for next year, when the new President will be Sai Kolli. Music Society President: Alex Lamont Secretary: Paul Blaker The Music Society has had an extraordinarily active year, with a new concert series and an increase in the reliability and standard of the traditional events; the calendar of events has been altered considerably, resulting in larger audiences and more polished concerts. Lunchtime recitals continue to be held on Wednesdays in the Chapel, and have made good use of the excellent organ (recitals from the Organ Scholars, Rupert Jeffcoat and Andrew Reid, and Stephen Axford, David Woodcock and Graham Drewery); Instrumental Award Holders have participated (College Award Holders Fiona Mackintosh, Sarah Burnett and Catherine Maguire have all brought their groups), and there were also vocal recitals (Alicia Duffy and Russell Platt), a number of bassoon recitals from Sarah Burnett and Catherine Maguire, the inaugural concert from the St Catharine's Recorder Consort (Matthew Male, Georgia Lowe, Elizabeth McConnell), and staged excerpts from the Marriage of Figaro (Alicia Duffy, Tanya Wicks, Andrew Key and Piers Maxim). Thanks are also due to Paul Blaker, Tania Jacklin, Georgia Lowe, Catherine Maguire, Catherine Larkin, Alex Lamont and Tim Wright for their memorable contributions. A new series of Sunday evening Chamber Concerts in the Chapel began in the Michaelmas Term with four concerts on the theme of JS Bach; this series, which has continued throughout the year, has included a number of accomplished players from within the College, as well as the former Director of Music, Dr PG le Huray. Thanks are due to Thomas Kemp, Fiona Mackintosh, Rupert Jeffcoat, Catherine Maguire, Alicia Duffy, Ursula Gough, Adrian Bradbury, Matthew Owens, Rachel Walker, Orlando Jopling, David Woodcock and Lynsey Marsh for polished performances. The Annual Choral and Orchestral Concert was moved to the end of the Michaelmas Term, in Little St Mary's Church, and featured a last minute substitution by Thomas Kemp as first violin soloist in Handel's Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 1, with Andrew Kennedy and Anne Gerritsen as second violin and cello soloists respectively. Fiona Mackintosh gave a spirited rendition of the flute solo in Bach's Second Overture, and the concert concluded with Handel's Chandos Anthem 'I Will Magnify Thee' (vocal soloists Tanya Wicks, Alicia Duffy and Simon Williams, conductor Russell Platt). The Annual Orchestral Concert was moved to the sixth week of the Lent Term, in the Music Faculty, and was included in the Cambridge Mozart Festival's calendar, the first half consisting of vocal arias from Mozart's Cosifan Tutte (Tanya Wicks, Alicia Duffy and Andrew Key) and Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos (soloists Alex Lamont and Catherine Larkin). The second half began with Hummel's Wind Octet, concluding with an enthusiastic version of dementi's Fourth Symphony (conductor Rupert Jeffcoat). The May Week concert, also held in the Music Faculty, opened with virtuoso performances from bassoonist Sarah Burnett (Vivaldi's Bassoon Concerto in E minor) and violinist Thomas Kemp (Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending), and after strawberries and wine in the gardens of St Chad's, continued with a chaotic performance of The Sound of Music featuring Tanya Wicks and 'justback-from-mexico' Andy Morton, with a cameo role by Ambrose O'Hogan as the Mother Superior conducted by Catherine Larkin and directed by Alex Lamont. The First Years again made their entrance into College musical life with the Freshers' Revue, held in November - thanks to Catherine Maguire, Georgia Lowe and Matthew Male for co-ordinating this as well as organising the Rag Revue, held in conjunction with the Shirley Society in May Week.

51 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 49 Thanks must go to all who have contributed to Music Society events this year, particularly to the enthusiastic First Years (who look set to make a sizeable impression on College musical life), especially to Alex Lamont and the committee. We wish Paul Blaker and the new committe well for the coming year. Photographic Society President: Tim Conway Secretary: Ines Cavill The photographic society expanded considerably this year, driven by numerous interested first years and a large budget that made possible several essential improvements. Purchase of a good tripod expanded the potential of the college camera, and a new daylight loader allows the society to provide cheap film as well as access to the darkroom and equipment. A two-day exhibition at the start of May drew out many talented shots from over fifteen students in college, was visited by many and was judged by a photographer from the Cambridge Evening News: the winner was Dean Holland, for his excellent shots of a Jean Micheal Jarre concert in Paris. Several college photographers contributed photographs to various publications, Dylan Fee was appointed joint photo-editor of Varsity, and Dean and I took photographs of the Asian Union Roshni fashion show. Those who knew how to develop and print black and white showed interested newcomers how to use the darkroom and we hope to put together a guide to taking, developing and printing photos over the summer. It has been a great year and I hope Alan Tripp and Dean Holland, who take over next year, have as much fun. Catz Right Society 1990 saw the emergence fo Catz Right, founded as an organ to put forward the President: Julian Sansum views of the Conservative section of the college. After a period of heavy Secretary: Jennifer Cole recruiting we can boast fifty seven members with a variety of opinions spanning both the traditional and radical values. The Tory Party Leadership election caused a great deal of debate within the society, contemporaries unable to decide whether to support change or stick with the old guard. Since John Major's election Catz Right has looked to social events to entertain its members as we return to consensus politics. A very successful trip to the House of Commons was organised in conjunction with the University Conservative Association. Tea was laid on and members chatted to, among others, Geoffrey Howe and Tom King. Events lined up for the summer include a dinner and a garden party. Shirley Society President: Lisa Gallagher Secretary: Hilary Clarke and Alison Emmett Once again, the Shirley Society has had an extremely successful year, with guest speakers from all aspects of the Arts world, attracting sizeable and appreciative audiences. Sheridan Morley provided an entertaining evening, reminiscing about his long involvement with the theatre, and talking about his biography of Noel Coward, whilst Anthony Thwaite read and discussed his poetry, and his associations with Philip Larkin, culminating in his editorship of Larkin's Collected Poems. Art Malik, the actor, talked of his deeply felt concerns about racism in the media, in a joint meeting with the University Indian Society. In the Lent term, the actor Timothy West gave an interesting and informative account of the state of the arts in Britain today, and he was closely followed by Barry Norman, the film critic, who took questions in front of a large and varied audience. Hermione Lee, the academic, talked on her recent works about Virginia Woolf, and David Dabydeen read from his new novel, The Intended. Our final guest was author Barry Hines, who read from his many novels, and talked about the problems he encountered as a script writer. Unfortunately, Jeremy Isaacs, the Director of the Royal Opera House, was unable to make it, because of the snow in February, but he will speak about "Opera and its public" at a later date. We have also continued to sponsor dramatic productions, including Westenbaker's The Love of the Nightingale and Aurora Leigh by M. Wandor. Finally, we would like to wish the best of luck to next year's secretaries. Steers' Society President: Tanya Wicks The Steers' Society thrived again this year, with its meetings enjoyed by college members of all disciplines, not only geographers. In the Michaelmas term, as it happened, our guest speakers were all past or present members of Catz: Matthew Sleeman (1987) and Mike Pemberthy spoke about the Australian Aborigine farm where they had both worked, and where Matthew had done the fieldwork for his dissertation. Dr David Turnock (1962), now at Leicester University, reviewed the situation in Romania since the Revolution, illustrating his talk with fascinating slides taken on a visit in the summer of Ian Willis, a fellow of the college, spoke to both the Steers' and John Ray Societies. Taking Coleridge for his title, "The Sacred River ran through caverns made measureless to man", he talked about his PhD work in glacial hydrology. In the Lent term Rex Walford came from the University Education Department to discuss Geography in the National Curriculum and finally, Andrew Goudie, Professor of the School of Geography at Oxford, shared his expertise on the subject of "Geomorphology in a warmer world". One of the Society's "social" highlights was the "Christmas Outing" to London, to attend a symposium on "Careers for Geographers" at the Royal Geographical Society and to see the Monet Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Another was the Annual Dinner, a cosy gathering in the OCR at which we were well entertained by Professor Graham Chapman (1962). Michael Miller takes over as President for the coming year, for which I wish him all the best. VETERAN BLUES: The St Catharine's Relay Team, October 1924 The Editor has received a good response to his request for identification of the un-named members of the team who appeared in the photograph reproduced on page 42 of last year's magazine. H. M. Lund (1921) identifies himself in the front row seated next to G. O. C. Duxbury (later the Rev'd G. D. C. D.), the President, with Fuller on his left-hand side. (See also Appointments and Notes p Lund). A. I. Pottinger (1926), Captain of Golf 1928 recognises M. F. Young (1924) as the young man on the left-hand side of the pair seated cross-legged on the cobbles and this was confirmed by his son, I. F. Young (1958). Murray Young came from Westminster School to read

52 50 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Mathematics, and achieved a half-blue as second string in the Mile in 1926/7. After leaving Caths he returned to Westminster as a master. At the extreme right of the front row seated on the bench was G. H. Lintott, an athlete who was also expected to be awarded a blue for Golf, but sadly lost a leg as the result of a motorbike accident. Alec Pottinger also records that the 1926 Rugger team, of which he was a member, included four current or future blues and/or Welsh caps; namely John Roberts, Guy Morgan, Harry Bowcott and Dick Hoplais. JCR REPORT As Mark Loughran's report predicted, 1990 brought some problems in student welfare. The combined effects of the Poll Tax and the withdrawal of Housing Benefit and Social Security payments over summer place severe financial stress on students, especially those living out. I am pleased to report that after negotiations the College agreed to increase hardship funds and make as many College rooms as possible available for student use. This support will prove essential in the future, especially when Government Access Funds for students are phased out. Another major source of debate in the JCR was the May Ball which, owing to insufficient ticket sales, was almost cancelled. The profile of the event was raised, with elections now being held for posts on the May Ball Committee, but despite this, financial constraints make the Ball's future uncertain. This year saw the start of student representation on the College Governing Body. Although somewhat nerve-wracking experience for the JCR and MCR members initially (what would it be like? Question Time in the House of Commons, or a scene from 'Porterhouse Blue'?), this has proved to be very useful in furthering understanding between junior and senior members. If all continues to go well, it would be a fitting gesture to give the junior members full voting status: students, although only temporary residents in College as individuals, as a group are hopefully as much part of St Catharine's future as the Fellowship. On behalf of the retiring JCR Committee, I would like to thank Dr Thompson for all his help as the senior member of the JCR, and wish the new President Heidi Preis and her committee the very best of luck.

54 52 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Alley Cats Top Cat: Vicki Holgate Treasurer: Kirsty Bashforth Clubs The most significant event this year for the Alley Cats has been the return of the bin liner. After a trial period of one initiation, when the trainee Alley Cats were allowed to wear clothes, the old favourite was reinstated. We have held two sets of initiations so far this year. Carrie Johnson deserves a special mention for even thinking she could use a washing machine as a toilet. I hope the plants in Eraina survived having pints of lager surreptitiously poured on them in a desperate attempt to avoid drinking it during our last initiations - yes, we did notice! The Alley Cats have maintained, if not improved, their already close relationship with the Pembroke Idlers this year. There's nothing like a good clean game of Monopoly to get people mixing. A message to all those who swallowed houses we don't want them back! After an abortive attempt at an Old Girls' Dinner in the Lent term we are looking forward to trying again in the Easter term. Finally, I would just like to thank Kirsty Bashford for keeping the Alley Cats account in credit. Athletics President: J.A. Skill Ladies' Captain: Miss O.C. Richards On Saturday October 20th the University Cuppers competition was held and this year the college fielded strong teams for both the men's and the ladies' events. Each team was placed sixth against stiff competition which, considering the comparative inexperience of many of our team members, we found very pleasing. Our team of over thirty athletes thoroughly enjoyed the day and many of our competitors achieved performances (and competed in events) never before thought possible. Individual events were won by Miss C.E. Cummings (ladies' 100 m hurdles), A.R. Ingram (high jump, 2nd string 110 m hurdles), M.A. Reeves Esq. (2nd string hammer throw) and J.A. Skill (hammer throw, shot putt). Our thanks go to Dr. C. Thorne for assisting in running the club and refereeing on the day. After Cuppers A.R. Ingram competed well for the University in the Varsity freshers' match and in lent term Miss C.E. Cummings, J.P. Arnold, A.R. Ingram, A.D. McLeod and J.A. Skill competed in the varsity field events and relays matches. Miss K. Cox who competed well for CUAC in Easter term and Miss A.G. Durran joined the strongest College representation in the Varsity match that we can remember and our congratulations go to Miss C.E. Cummings for being awarded half-blues in both 100 m hurdles and 400 m hurdles, Miss K. Cox for representing the ladies second team, the Alligators, in the long jump, Miss A.G. Durran for representing Alligators in the high jump, J.P. Arnold for winning the 110 m hurdles and being awarded his full blue (again), A.R. Ingram for being awarded a half-blue in the high jump, A.D. McLeod for being awarded men's second team (Alvestone) colours in both high jump and discus throw and J.A. Skill for winning the hammer throw. Our best wishes go to Miss J.R. Buckley and A.R. Ingram who have been appointed team captains for next year and we hope that college athletes and athletics go from strength to strength. Badminton Men's Captain: Paul Harley Men's Secretary: Aidan Prendergast Ladies Captain: Sara George Ladies Secretary: Vanessa Sherwin This year has proved an extremely successful one on all fronts. Thanks to a good deal of first year interest we put out four Men's and two Ladies teams, making us one of the largest squads in the League. The Men had an excellent year, gaining seven promotions out of a possible eight. The Men's first team reached the first division, but finished in the second; with the second, third and fourth teams finishing in Divisions four, seven and eleven, respectively.the Cuppers Squad had reached the Semi-finals by the copy date, and will play Fitz. in the Michaelmas term. The Ladies First team retained their First Division slot for the Year, and were top in the Michaelmas term. The Ladies seconds gained promotion, and retained their position in the sixth Division. Their Cuppers Squad also reached the Semi-finals, but were denied a chance to retain their title by John's. Our University contingent was in the form of Michelle Parr and Lyn Hunt, who both played for the Cockerels Team, and played in the second team Varsity Match at Oxford. With the forty-five members of the squad we now have, the Social side of the club fared well, with various meals held through-out the year. This was rounded off with an excellent end of season Club Dinner, with the Pembroke Squad as guests. All in all, we have had an extremely successful, and enjoyable year, and it just remains for me to thank Sara George for Captaining the Ladies, and to thank Aidan Prendergast, and Vanessa Sherwin for their sterling work as our Secretaries. May our success continue! Boat Club Captain: Alex Rowe This year has been something of a transition year both for the men's and women's boat club after the graduation of a number of experienced rowers last year. Consequently, the year has been spent cultivating people who had previously only rowed in lower boats, resulting in some good oarsmen and building the depth needed for next year. The year has also had its fair share of injuries and bad weather, making rowing sometimes difficult. The men's 1st VIII came twenty fifth in the Fairbairn Cup. During the Lent term, the River Cam iced over for a period of two weeks, this making rowing impossible. In spite of a heavy land training regime, this was not enough for good results in the Lent Bumps which ended in one row over and a drop of three places. The women's 1st VIII produced better results, going up three places. The Easter Term started with a training week at Henley, this being run by Derek Harding, who as always, has a very good way of getting boats started. After this week, the men's first VIII was fit and had a solid technical base upon which to build during the term. This was helped by the coaches we had including Graham Sutton, Peter Reed, Ben Williams, David Berry, Richard McBride and James Witter. Thanks must go to Derek Harding and David Gillard who both stepped in at the last minute after our finishing coach suddenly received unavoidable business. By the Bumps, we were a solid crew, this showing on the first day when we bumped Churchill at the railings after a consistent row. Unfortunately, we were bumped back by Churchill on the second day after they had a very fast start. The third day gave some exciting rowing with Churchill, St Catharine's and Fitzwilliam within a canvas of each other

55 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 53 until the long reach where we were bumped by Fitzwilliam. The last day of the May Bumps was rowed in disgusting weather conditions. St Catharine's was bumped by a very fast Christ's 1st VIII. The women's 1st VIII unfortunately went down four places during the May Bumps after a successful Lent in which they went up three. During the May Term they were beset by injuries and other mishaps, but luckily there were always people willing to step in and help out. Congratulations go to Richard Staite and Dave Gillard both of whom obtained full blues this year after rowing in the Oxford/Cambridge Boat race. Richard Staite was also voted in as president of the CUBC. The Boat Club also recieved some generous sponsorship this year thanks to the efforts of Richard McBride and Price Waterhouse. This gave some greatly needed financial assistance to the boat club. I would like to give my best wishes to next year's captains who are Julian Sansum and Joanne Heron and hope they have as enjoyable time as I have had this year. Ladies' Boat The year began well with a great deal of interest being shown by the freshers in Captain: Helen Knight the Michaelmas Term, enabling us to put out three novice crews. St. Vice-Captain: Jo Whiteley Catharine's was the only college to enter two eights into the Fairbairn's. Needless to say, the 2nd VIII won the prize for being the fastest 2nd VIII crew. Enthusiasm for rowing continued into the Lent Term resulting in several crews being on the river. This term saw the start of the Gentlewomen's VIII, keeping pace with the Gentlemen's VIII, their motto "take it gently" being very apt. Rowing in the Lent Term was hampered by bad weather with the river freezing over for two weeks resulting in a couple of regattas being cancelled. Land training became the order of the day! In spite of this, in the Bumps, the 2nd VIII went up four places winning their blades very easily and not having to row far on any day. The 1st VIII went up three places, rowing over on the 3rd day in a re-row due to a 'pile up' earlier on in the division. The 1st VIII has now gone up 12 places overall in the Lent Bumps over the last three years - long may this trend continue. In the Easter term, the 1st VIII was plagued by difficulties including back injuries and other crew illnesses. Many thanks to O. Richards and V. Moore for their active support. The 2nd VIII suffered from similar troubles with a variety of crew changes taking place within weeks of the May Bumps. The Gentlewomen's VIII made up for it all by making a very fast time in the getting-on race and ensuring that there would be three Catz crews in the Mays. Disappointingly the results in the races did not reflect the hard work and enthusiasm of all the crews. Many thanks, however, go to all the coaches for their time. I would like to wish good luck to Jo Heron, next year's captain, and to Anna Seale and Vicky Moore, joint vicecaptains next year and wish them continued success. Bridge Captain: John Botham. This year has, on paper, not been that successful for Catz. But, with the arrival of several keen first years, we were able to form four teams - which is an achievement in itself. After the unfortunate collapse of last year's tournament, it was nice to have the opportunity to play a few matches. Our 4th team (captained by Debbie Hammond), through bad luck, was pitted against two strong teams and was knocked out of both Cuppers and the Losers' Plate in the first rounds. Our 3rd team (capt. Simon Johnson) had the same luck in Cuppers but had a good run for their money in the Plate before losing to Downing. The 1st team, although lasting longer than the others in Cuppers (reaching the 2nd round) were immediately dismissed from the Plate by Queens. At time of going to press, the 2nd team (capt. Leighton Walker) is in the semifinals of the Plate... despite not having played a match! I wish them the best of luck.. It remains only to thank all our players for their support and enthusiasm. Thanks also to Ian Campbell who takes over as next year's captain. Chess Captain: 1st team: Steve Foister 2nd team: Chris Hughes Crag and Mountain President: James Wakeling Secretary: David Marsden This year our first team maintained its position in the first division, whilst the second team lost its gains of last year. The first full year of this club's existence has given it a promising start. Trips ran most weekends with termtime venues including Devon, Pembroke, Snowdonia, Southern Sandstone, Swanage and the Peak District. A two week "club" meet this Easter saw eight members brave the very dynamic Welsh mist, and members have also been climbing in Greenland, Spain, France, and some winter routes in Wales during the December Freeze. As always, transport is a major concern to undergraduates, so Dave Marsden's car proved to be a welcome asset; the enthusiasm of the first years helped the club get off the ground, and will provide its mainstay for next year. Cricket Captain: Martin Poulsen Secretary: Dave Elias The 1991 season saw a different type of cricket being played by Catz - for the first time in my three years we were able to field a side of eleven 'cricketers' as opposed to 'players'. A great sense of pride and achievement was felt by the senior players in the side when we won our first Cuppers game ever against Selwyn. The wheel did not roll further than the second round however, when we lost to Girton (NB. no longer women only) although it was felt that we deserved a victory by virtue of almost the entire team sporting matching college jumpers. Get one next year Shaun. On the organizational front not all went smoothly, with the Secretary's season culminating in the memorable South Woodford debacle, when three teams turned up at the ground on the same day. The weather also proved to be a nagging opponent throughout the season. 'Chris the Groundsman' could never be accused of being reluctant to call off a fixture if the opportunity arose, and a number of fixtures were lost to the weather and opposition no-shows. The season was not all barren tundra though, and several impressive individual performances were registered. Perhaps the highest peak was Stephane Pendered thundering 130 against Tit Hall as well as other smaller cameos, whilst averaging around 50 for the season. The coaching of Maurice Hope has helped Stephane in particular. Dave Elias made a few good leg side takes and a 74 n.o. and the newcomer Alex Holmes an authoritative 59. The captain remained primarily in the hinterland, assuming the role of vibe-controller and contributing occasionally on the run-front whilst being caught on all but one occasion. The bowling was, in a word 'bowling' with the most senior member of the team, Andy Jagoe, turning in good figures consistently despite suffering from a variety of different canine ailments over the course of the season. When not captaining and spearheading the Crusaders' attack Dan Cotton was always a fearsome proposition and

56 54 St Catharine's College Society Magazine also chalked up a personal best of 2 runs against Girton. Austen Pearce revealed a penchant for the music of Jethro Tull and Simon Chowdhury and Jim Watt regularly livened up the dressing room with their naming of the 1983 Sri Lankan World Cup Squad. All in all a bit of a caper - Won 3, Lost 3, Drawn 1 and 'Oh, yes'; we won our division of the new Inter-college League (just). Cross Country Club Captain: Gregory Briffa The team's final position of fourth in the University's First Division this year owes much to the dedication and commitment of a few runners, in particular Gregory Briffa, Chris Lawrence, Rob Atenstaedt and Simon Smith. After a Michaelmas term's performance that suffered from clashing work (!) commitments but saw several members selected to run against Oxford in the 2nd and 5th teams, the team produced some excellent results in the Lent term, chasing St John's in third place hard with notable performances by James MacGregor over the League Course and in the Selwyn Relays. Several first years made it as far as training with us, but turnout at the races was always down on the numbers out training; next year's Captain will have to mobilize more of this potential that certainly exists in college if we are to maintain our position in the First Division. Football Captain: Jim Watt This season has to be one of the least successful for Cats' football in living memory. We managed only one win and three draws, but thankfully these were enough to stave off the chill winds of relegation and to ensure our survival in Division 2. In the process of doing so badly, however, we did play some excellent football, so that the season was not barren tundra all the way. The highlight was probably the second practice, when forty-five people turned up. At least this showed a renewed interest, if not in every case renewed ability, and, given the general enthusiasm it was unfortunate that Division 5 didn't happen, especially for the 2nd XI Captain, Simon Proctor, who was unable to back up his extravagent C.V. claims with anything tangible. Our Cuppers defeat (2-0 to Emmanuel) typified the season in that we competed well, made chances, but did not do quite enough. The 2nd XI were more successful, however, capturing the notable scalps of Hills Road 2nd XI and John's 2nd XI on the way to defeat by a hotly-disputed penalty against Jesus in the semi-final. At our end of season dinner, Ollie Rackham was made player of the year for some reason, and the Senate House run was performed with exemplary commitment by a healthy number of diners. Given the high standards of Division 2 football now, it is important that the squad members maintain the zeal they showed on this night. Thanks to everyone who played this year, to Chris, the groundsman, and John, the barman, and best wishes to next year's steering committee of Ewan Burrows and Andrew Connell. Ladies Football Captain: Fran Hanlon Vice-Captain: Caroline Johnson 2nd XI Captain: Rebecca Bensted Once again the interest in Ladies Football has been maintained with an enthusiastic intake of first years, replacing many talented players from This has enabled us to put forward two teams for both Cuppers and the League. Catz 1 gained third position in Division 1 of the League, despite having drawn with the League winners, Homerton. In Cuppers, they were unfortunate to go out to the Cup winners, Clare 1. Catz 2 showed great commitment, even when losing 10-0 against Fitz 1, in their first match of the season. They did however go on to win one match (Sidney 1). This was not quite enough though, to prevent their demotion to the 4th Division. They showed a similarly disappointing result by going out in the first round of Cuppers. Regardless of the above results the team had a most enjoyable season. Hopefully continued determination will lead to an improvement on this year's results, although Liz Barker's shouting ability needs no improvement whatsoever! During the season the coaches (Jim Watt, Simon Chowhury, Dan Cotton & Simon "Paddy" Proctor) have shown great encouragement and dedication. As a reflection of this (and earlier coaching - thanks Jim & Jules!) three of the first team members (Fran Hanlon, Carrie Johnson & Becci Lancashire) have gone on to represent the University. This wasn't enough for Carrie who then finished top goal scorer of the season, closely followed by Sarah Cook. However, Fran's few goals were the most celebrated. Fran would like to thank everyone for making her job as captain an enjoyable one and hopes that next year's captain, Alison Culpin, has an equally rewarding season. Football; Three Legged Captain: Caroline Johnson Once again St. Catharine's entered a team in this renowned sporting event, all in aid of Rag. Our enthusiasm following last year's win of the Golden Boot Trophy obviously scared off the other competitors as we ended playing a tournament amongst the St. Catharine's teams only. Those who had played in previous years showed an initial advantage, realising that joint decisions are vital when tied to your partner, and that individual actions are not rewarded. The newcomers soon learnt (although goalie kicks still created a few problems) and the tournament provided an entertaining day's sport. The award for the highest goal scorers must go to the unusual partnership of S. Proctor and D. Macrae, closely followed by the guest appearance of last years football Blues player Jules Curwen. American Football - Topcatz President: Dave Hart Captain: Andy Wilson Treasurer: Steve Foister Despite a good turnout for all matches and consistent playing by a dedicated team, Topcatz unfortunately failed to reach noteworthy positions in either Cuppers or the Colleges' League. However, there were some excellent performances and the most satisfying game of the season was a 38:16 win over the Cavendish Lab.'s "Kittens", - a victory which had narrowly eluded us three times before. Congratulations must go to Mark Croft and Wolfgang Muller who were selected for the University team, the Cambridge Lions, and who, despite the large personal financial burdens this entailed, enjoyed a successful season playing fully kitted in the British Universities' League. Many thanks to all those who came and played, supported, or brought beer (or any combination of these). Hopefully we'll have better luck next season! Hockey Captain: Simon Chowdhury Secretary: Paul Clough No report for the Catz hockey season could begin without mentioning the monumental contribution made by the 1st. XI captain, Simon Chowdbury, a figure of immense presence and personality in the side. On behalf of all those lucky enough to play alongside him, I wish him well in his future hockey

58 56 St Catharine's College Society Magazine career. This year's side was further butressed by a good intake of first years - a rarity in Catz these days. Both Nick Ratcliffe and Paul Bradbury played not only with virtuoso displays of dazzling stick skill but also with a maturity belying their age. By the end of the Michaelmas term we lay second place in the First Division, having been defeated by a Girton side that was strengthened only by the absence of S. Pendered and a missed penalty. The Lent term however saw a consolidation of success. We went into the final match of the season v. A.H.E.C., needing to avoid defeat by three goals - this would be sufficient for us to become league champions. We succeeded - just. The Michaelmas term also saw the annual fixture with the Hampstead Veterans which once again proved to be a very enjoyable event, the college triumphing 4 1, showing that experience is no substitute for the talent of Shelley an youth. The day can not be left without the mention of the splendid skills of Blues players, M. Chakraverty and S. Proctor, who took time off from their respective waterpolo and equestrian duties to make sandwiches. Congratulations also go to John Grieve for his third successive Wanderer's colours and to Paul Harvey who gained his first Blue. Best of luck to Paul in his new role next season as Blues' captain. The strength in depth that the club had this year was manifested in the storming run that the 2nd XI had to the final of Cuppers. Outstanding players of the team included the captain, John "inspirational" Evans, John "almost a ringer" Grieve and Paul "lean on the goal asleep" Brennan. Colours were awarded to the following: A. Vashisht, S. Pendered, J. Evans, M. Croft (top scorer) and next year's captain P. Clough. Finally, before you fall off your seats with excitement, RESPECT where RESPECT is due to Messrs. Pannu and Taylor for reassuring Simon in his ability to lead (albeit from the back), and to Chris Tovey for what was widely acclaimed to be the best pitch in the league. Lastly thanks to J.T. Monks for placing a bet on AHEC - we could not have done it without you Juan Monkero. Ladies' Hockey Captain: Vicki Holgate Secretary: Clare Davis Umpire Secretary: Zoe Codd This year has been one of mixed fortunes for Catz Ladies' Hockey Club. We began well by coming 4th in the League and looked set to do even better in Cuppers. Unfortunately, this was not to be. Despite a spirited effort from everyone, we were very unlucky to lose 1:0 to Clare in the second round. It was very encouraging to see five first years in the team this year. Hopefully this will provide a solid base for next year's team. Without going through the whole team I would just like to mention a few people. Firstly I would like to thank Claire Davis who has organised both the League and Cuppers this year, Zoe Codd who has found us an umpire each week and Rich Martin and Simon Chowdhury who have cycled miles and braved the harshest of conditions just to umpire our matches. Kate Cholerton, who arrived as a right wing, was misplaced slightly at the start of the season but has developed into a very good sweeper. Livvy Richards, as always, has been a bit of a star but the award for 'goal of the season' must go to Kirsty Bashford for her superbly struck winning goal against Girton. I would like to congratulate Alex Thompson for gaining University 2nd team colours. Vicki Holgate and Zoe Codd both earned their second Blues this year and played for the Combined London, Oxford and Cambridge team. But special congratulations must go to Zoe who has also been selected for the British Universities Sports Federation squad. This year Catz Ladies' Hockey Club tried something unheard of in previous years and held elections for the post of Captain. I would like to wish the new Captain, Kirsty Peart, and the new League Secretary, Lise Shonfield, the very best of luck for next year. I hope you get a bit further in Cuppers than we did this year! Mixed Hockey Captains: Caroline Johnson Simon Chowdhury Unfortunately the other commitments of the captains and lack of willing new members to take over the position has resulted in a slightly disappointing season for St. Catharine's Mixed Hockey. The fixtures which went ahead proved extremely successful, even if the ball did not hit the backboard as often as it might have done. The team entertained a visiting side from Leeds University in the Michaelmas term, however, we proved unable to beat them, either on the field or in the bar - rumours that they drink beer in the North proved untrue of this team. In the Lent term we held our regular fixture against Pembroke College, and embarked on an inter-collegiate tournament, sponsored by Arthur Anderson. The latter was a rewarding experience for the team. Nick Ratcliff demonstrated his experience giving St. Catharine's a lead on Fitzwilliam, however the inexperience of the goalie (Caroline Johnson) lead to our later downfall to Trinity Hall et al, who went on to win the tournament. I would like to thank Simon Chowdhury, who's organisation enabled the fixtures to go ahead and created increased team spirit. The Kittens President: Dan Cotton Secretary: Oily Rackham The Kittens thrived this year. We were brave, and financially stupid enough to initiate eleven new members. The events which proved to be the highlight of the year included breaking furniture, chilli sauce, table surfing, cross-dressing, salutes to the senate house, whistles and the occasional snake-bite. Oily took cover from a grenade attack in Pembroke Pond; hats were swapped, stereos were watered, bannisters suffered. A visit to Addenbrokes was also arranged by Geoff (our first-aider Porter) for the foolish president who tried and failed to jump a spiked hedge outside Newnham. Several joint ventures took place with the New Hall Dolphins, Newnham Unicorns, Pembroke Martlets and Idlers, and the John's Flamingoes. This report is written under the overhang of the annual dinner which was its usual taciturn self. Corpus duly received its annual delivery of golf balls. Netball Captain: Ceri Smith Secretary: Sarah Lee This has been an outstanding season for Catz netball, due to the appearance of a considerable number of talented first years, increased enthusiasm from the second and third years and the continued commitment from the faithful few. The first team achieved a record, by becoming an undefeated side, with the opposition failing to score on several occasions, and will return to the first division where they rightly belong. After a shaky start, the second team displayed a wealth of hidden talent but will unfortunately remain in the fourth division - just wait till next year! The biggest disappointment of the season (excluding the lack of enthusiasm from the male contingent of college) was the clash of the Cuppers tournament with the Lent bumps which prevented Catz from entering a team. Despite this setback, we celebrated our success with an end of term dinner which was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.

59 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 57 Many thanks to all those who have played and good luck for next year, especially to Sarah Sturt and Sarah Lee, who will be ensuring that Catz netball maintains its record! Orienteering Acting Captain: Dr. C.J.R. Thorne The College Orienteering Club in 1991 remained somewhat in a state of "suspended animation" awaiting all the talented freshmen the Admissions Tutor promises us. However, a few members of the College performed during the Michaelmas Term and by the time of "Cuppers" in February, two full teams were available and on the starting line. Sadly, and for the first time in many years, we had no girls in the team. Despite valiant efforts, on a rather inadequate map, the first team slipped a place compared with 1990, and finished seventh. Mountaineers James Wakeling and Roger Whittaker were the stars, as 12th and 21st individuals respectively. Caths has no members of the University team, but the brothers Nick (matriculated 1982, and an Orienteering Half Blue) and Chris (1988) Lawrence were the organisers of the 1991 varsity match. By all accounts they produced a testing course rather too testing, it seems, for the Cambridge men, who lost to Oxford in a rare defeat. Rugby Union Captain: R.J. Webb Secretary: D. Elias The loss of so many forwards and the arrival of a first year containing mainly three-quarters ensured a change of style as well as personnel in 1990/1. The First XV found its most potent attacking weapon in wingmen G. Brake and W. McFarlane augmented by the excellent goal kicking of Elias. Forward play, never less than committed, improved throughout the season: C. Murray at flanker and M. Reeves at lock showing continued excellence. The First XV finished 7th in Division 1, P11 W4 L7. R. Martin led the Second XV to third in their division playing "Champagne" rugby P6 W4 L2. Strengthened by the return of our University players the annual assualt on Cuppers began. Sadly both teams were to fall in their respective second rounds: the First XV losing 9-6 to Trinity, the Second XV going down to Downing II, the eventual winners of the competition, 8-A. The Club has continued to prosper, a summer tour of Canada is planned and, after the success of last years fixture, battle will be resumed with the Old Boys on the 26th of October (contact C. Murray for details). For the University Locke (England Students), Macrae (Scotland U21's) and Wooler represented the Blues and LX's. Macrae gained his second LX colours and a place on the Blues bench. Lyons and Reeves also played for the LX's whilst Bancroft and Elias represented the University U21's Congratulations and best wishes go to David Elias and Charles Murray, respectively Captain and Secretary next season. * * * Past and Present Rugby Match 3 p.m. Saturday 26th October If you can play contact Charlie Murray at College by post immediately. Men's Squash Captain: S.D.T. Axford Secretary: L.I. Chapman The 1990/91 season has not, perhaps, been one of the more auspicious in recent years. The number of men in College who play squash seems to shrink annually, and we now field only two teams, though this has partly resulted from the reorganisation of the inter-collegiate league competition. However, there is still hope, and the one or two promising freshmen of this year may lead a revival of the club's slightly flagging fortunes. On a factual note, the first team dropped from the second to the third division in the League at the end of the Michaelmas term; they subsequently held their position during the Lent term. The second team was relegated from the seventh to the eighth division, and likewise remained there. In Cuppers, the team fielded should have proved strong, and in fact successfully trounced Fitzwilliam. However, one or two surprises lurked at Girton, which resulted in our being knocked out at a comparatively early stage of the competition. Overall, the past few seasons have seen Catz sqash being fairly successful; certainly, performance in the cup in the previous two years has raised hoped as to the strength of squash potentially within the College. It remains to be seen whether next year will increase our success; may the best of luck, therefore, go with Lawrence Chapman, as he takes over the reins for 1991/92. Women's Squash Captain: Caroline Johnson Secretary: Josephine Buckley This year has been highly rewarding for St. Catharine's Ladies Squash team, which, for the first time in several years, entered two teams in the league. Both teams proved extremely successful, resulting in promotion of each at the end of the Michaelmas term. Our continued determination in the Lent term should result in further promotion with the first team competing in the top league, and the second team playing in the third division. In the Cuppers tournament the first team were unfortunate in drawing Queens in the second round (League and Cuppers winners). Several new talents have emerged, most noticeably Olivia Richards, whose release from rowing has strengthened the cohesion of the first team. Kirsty Bashforth has continued to show impressive commitment, resulting in greatly improved play. Meanwhile, Josephine's squash has put the rest of us to shame, and I wish her all the best in trialing for the Blues next season. A special thanks must go to the second team for their regular turn out, despite several frustrating walkovers, conceded by the opposition. The sponsorship of a college racquet has encouraged greater participation of squash amongst college and possibly enabled the participation of two teams, some of whom would have otherwise been restricted. The Squash team decided to follow other sports and hold an annual dinner this year, which proved highly entertaining, and I hope that this new tradition will be maintained. I would like to wish all the best to Josephine Buckley, whose hard work this season has well deserved her the position of captain in the season. Also, good luck to Jennie Morton who is about to learn the art of arranging squash matches at those unique meetings! Table Tennis Once again Catz fielded four teams in the league, one in divisions 1 and 2 and Secretary: Richard Pearce two in division four. The final league placings have been good, 2nd, 7th, 5th and 6th for each of the teams respectively despite the college not having a table to play on for most of the year. The 1st team played

60 58 St Catharine's College Society Magazine consistently well throughout the season, staying in the top five, and managed to clinch the runners up spot with strong results in the last few games. From the 1st team Nick Pine deserves particular mention having won 88% of his games, making him one of the most successful players in the league. The league results made up for a disappointing performance in Cuppers, Catz being knocked out in the first round 3-6 to St. Edmunds. Hopefully with a good intake of freshers next year we can look forward to even better results. I wish Roger Newell, next years Secretary good luck and thank all the players for their commitment. Lawn Tennis Captain: Oliver Rackham Secretary: Dylan Fee A very successful season last year led to promotion to the First Division. Despite worries that this would prove to be above us, the season has gone moderately well. Two college members played in the Grasshoppers (University second team) throughout the year but unfortunately neither was selected for the Varsity match - including Chris Thompson again. Hopefully next year's intake will allow us to continue playing enjoyable tennis. Thanks to the Bursar for playing again, and good luck to Dylan as next year's captain.

61 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 59 HAMPTON COURT "My parents thought I was the most over-educated woodcarver in the world". David Esterly was born in Akron, Ohio. He was educated at Harvard and had a Fulbright in English at St Catharine's (1966) for two years, where he stayed on for another four years studying for a PhD with a dissertation on the influence of Plotinus on Yeats and Coleridge. He has the look of a bespectacled academic and might have been just that had not his wife-to-be, Marietta von Bernuth, introduced him to the Grinling Gibbons wood carvings in St James', Picadilly. He was instantly beguiled, and his interest, at first purely academic, became practical when he realised that the only way to "understand how this extraordinary style developed" was to study the craft for himself. "Gradually the interest in carving superseded everything else". In 1986 a fire broke out on the floor above the King's State Apartments in the Wren wing of Hampton Court. As part of a 10 million restoration programme, Esterley was called upon by the Property Services Agency to restore the Grinling Gibbons carvings, and to recarve the only one which was destroyed, a 7-foot "drop" or vertical carving which flanked a painting. Providentially, a civil servant decided in 1938 to make a photographic record of all the Gibbons carvings, and this is Esterly's guide to placing the crocuses, waterlilies, cascading wheat, shamrocks and roses. Grinling Gibbons was born in 1648 at Rotterdam where he trained as a carver and sculptor in the Flemish tradition. Coming to London in 1667, he worked on Sudbury Hall with Edward Pearce, and probably in the great houses of Belton, Blenheim, Burghley, Chatsworth, Houghton, Melbury, Petworth, Somerleyton and many others. He executed the Cosimo Panel, regarded as one of the finest woodcarvings in existence, for Charles II as a gift for the Duke of Tuscany. He was employed by Wren on St Paul's Choir stalls and several other city churches. There are examples of his work in the Wren library of Trinity, Cambridge. In 1693 he was appointed Master Carver to William III, and in 1714 to George I. It was Gibbons' use of limewood which made him so unusual among the English carvers, wedded to sturdy oak. Esterly points out that the German for lime, linden, means "soft". It is this quality of the wood which was so suited to Gibbons' deep under-carving and swelling curves. Esterly has discovered that the notion of Gibbons' carving from one block of lime is a myth. Pieces were built up like mille-feuilles, strips of wood jointed or glued on top of one another. At Hampton Court there are boxes of detached fragments, clumps of mignonettes and peaches which screw together. The Editor is indebted to Mr J.M. Y. Andrew, former Director of Studies in English and Senior Tutor who wrote last year to tell him that David Esterly was known to have been in England. He added that "he was a very stimulating pupil". David Esterly post-scripts his letter to the Editor, "I lament how little I appreciated the fine carving in the Chapel during those six years I spent at St. Catharine's."

He is an active tennis player and leader in the Centre for Christian Studies. Lawson, T. G. (1961). See Tunnacliffe, N. Lobo, Cdr, N. M. (1950) had a call in Pune, India, this year from the daughter of Alan Strowger (1958). He writes "I shall be happy to meet any Cath's men coming out here. Our quotation below is from his short article in The Times of India of 20th February 1991: "My college magazine arrived almost simultaneously with the sad news of the death of a very senior Cathsman, as we are called. Tunku Abdul Putra Rahman must have been the best known Cathsman in the East. (Our late President, Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, was also at St Catharine's, Cambridge.) The Tunku was up at the college from 1923 to 1926, and was made an honorary fellow in The college magazine for 1980 says that: "A named Fellowship has been endowed by the Government of Malaysia in honour of the Tunku, first Prime Minister of the Federation, Hon. LL.D. of the University (of Cambridge)." Doubtless next year's magazine will have fitting obituary to the late Tunku. Oddly enough, my best friend in college was a Malaysian - Raja Mohar bin Azman who read economics, and when I last had news of him was a very senior civil servant of his government. And across the border from him, E. W. Barker was Lee Kuan Yew's law minister for several years. In 1979, I was introduced by the Rector of St Paul's School, Darjeeling, to a Dr Harbans Rai Bachchan, of whom alas I had not heard. (I had only heard of his son, Amitabh because he had been in the school a short while earlier for the shooting of Do Anjaane together with someone called Rekha starring opposite him). The rector mentioned the fact that I had been up at Cambridge, whereupon the professor asked me the name of my college. It was with some discomfiture, that I discovered that not only had he been up at Caths but his first year as a Ph.D. student had actually coincided with my last year as an undergrad. To confound me further he said that he had rooms on D staircase where I had also lived in my last year, but such is the arrogance of youth that I was ignorant of the presence of this scholar doing his doctorate on W. B. Yeats under the guidance of Tom Henn, the senior tutor and an authority on the poet. I visited the college last year but spoke only briefly to a girl from Delhi who was doing her M Phil before she hurried off to her books, for it was exam time. My wife and I were in England only because some Cathsmen had got together and organised it, fares, hospitality and all. One of them was a Caths contemporary I had not seen since coming down in 1952; and some had stayed with us both here in Pune and in Darjeeling where we had gone trekking in our beloved mountains. Yes, our college ties are strong indeed. As Cathsman G. D. Spencer writes in this year's magazine: "I would look forward to visiting College next year (on leave from Thailand where he is Reuters' man). I would like to think that there is still that timelessness about Caths and Cambridge that I remember so well." Amen. Long, Dr C. W. R. (1985), mentioned briefly in this section of last year's issue, kindly writes to fill in the detail. After spending much of his life since leaving College in the Middle East, he is now Director of International Affairs at Newcastle University, where he also lectures on Islamic History. Louth, The Rev'd A. (1962) has been appointed Reader in Religious Studies at Goldsmiths' College in the University of London. Lucas, A. L. (1966). See Baker, I. Lund, H. M. (1921) wrote to the Editor in response to the latter's request in last year's issue for identification of the young men in the 1924 relay team photograph (see p. 49 within). Harold Lund recalled that, when he went up in 1921, baths were just being installed. He was told that these were previously considered unnecessary on the grounds that the undergraduates were only up for eight weeks! On leaving College, H. M. L. went into shipping and prospered, but in the War the company lost five cargo ships out of six by enemy action! In 1950 he started the Diabetic Association, of which his son is now Treasurer. {See also Diamond Weddings). McKellan, Professor I. M. (1958, Honorary Fellow 1982) Cameron Mackintosh visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre at the University of Oxford from 1st June 1991 McKelvie, Laura M.

(1948) has been elected Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council. Mason, His Honour Peter, Q.C (1940) writes that he and his wife have cycled for some years and in 1988 decided to do it for charity. "We put our bikes on the plane in huge cardboard boxes, and went off to New Zealand for about six weeks. We cycled that year round the South Island, the next year round the North Island, last year along the Great Ocean Road in Australia betweeen Adelaide and Melbourne, and in January and February this year round Tasmania. By this time we had acquired rather super light mountain bikes with eighteen derailleur gears (we found that good old three-gear Sturmey Archers weren't quite up to the job) and learnt that the airlines take better care of them if they fly unwrapped than if they are boxed! This year we raised over 3,000 from our friends for the British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Society for Cancer Relief and Nature Conservation." Although he retired officially three years ago as a High Court Judge, he still sits occasionally at the Old Bailey and in the West Country. He is doing more and more work as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators - private international arbitrations and running courses to instruct others - and more and more work in the City of London, where he is on the Board of the newly formed Securities and Futures Authority. He is Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel, helping to enforce the machinery of regulation of those involved in the City in investment business. Meara, R. H. (1936) was prompted by reading in the last issue of one of his contemporaries, Dr A. F. Crowther, to send news of his own career since they studied together. After becoming Consultant Dermatologist to the Middlesex Hospital, London, and St John's Hospital for Diseases of the Skin, R. H. M. became Dean of the Institute of Dermatology, University of London from 1970 to From 1980 to 1982 he was Honorary Consultant Dermatologist to the British Army. In 1978/79 he was President of the Royal Society of Medicine (London), and in 1979 was Parker Weber Lecturer and Medalist of the Royal College of Physicians. {See also Meara, R. J.)

(1948), an actor and director in Canada, is also a sculptor. Nine of his cast bronze sculptures, inspired by Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot, have been bought for the Stratford Shakespearean Festival, Stratford, Ontario. This is the theatre after which Chichester was modelled. The sculptures are on permanent display around the upper foyer of the Festival theatre. Senaratne, C. (1953). In 1973 he emigrated to New Zealand from Sri Lanka and was attached to W. D. & H. O. Wills (N.Z.) Ltd. at senior management level. Later he took up an appointment in Australia as the National Purchasing Manager and moved to Sydney in His interest in parapsychology dates back to He has spent over ten years in research, although the material available is limited, and has completed his first manuscript on parapsychology and allied subjects. If there are any Cath's men or women interested in the subject who would like to share their knowledge or conduct research in this area of study, C. S. would be pleased to hear from them. Seymour, P.

Smith, K. M. (1948). See Reed, J. W. Smith, R. E. (1957) has retired early from the Scottish Office, where he was Assistant Secretary (Grade 5), because of illhealth; but he reports that increased leisure has enabled him to return to the Classics so thoroughly instilled into him by Pat Lacey during the years Sorensen, P. A. (1965) writes that he and Simon Davies (1967) have worked together as solicitors for Marley plc in Sevenoaks for over ten years, usually in next-door rooms. Phillip has now been appointed Assistant Secretary to the group, but continues to give some legal advice. Soulsby, Lord (E.J.L., 1956) in an address to the 1990 Conference of the British Veterinary Association exhorted the profession to seek a wider role of supervision at every stage of the food chain "from intitial decisions on breeding and production, through transport, slaughter and inspection and beyond". In particular, the Conference had been concerned at the omission of veterinarians from the Tyrell Committee advising the Government on the public health implications of the so-called "Mad Cow" disease, bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Stainsby, Dr G. (1941) has now retired from the Proctor Department of Food Science at Leeds University. He recalls that in 1957 Dr Stanley Aston, on hearing that he had "gone into food" suggested that he let him know when he

69 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 67 had made his first million! "Well", he writes, "it hasn't turned out that way, but I've had a very happy time". His work has recently been acknowledged in an award of the Food Chemistry Group of the R.S.C. (See Honours and Awards.) Stake, R. J.

(1981) was awarded his Ph.D. at Cambridge in July 1990, and is currently lecturing in Geography at Edinburgh University. The subject of his doctoral thesis was "Broken Places: a Geography of the 1926 Coal Mining Dispute". Tanner, D. M. (Research Fellow 1985) now lectures in modern British and European History at University College of North Wales, Bangor. He writes that he has at long last produced his book on Edwardian Liberal and Labour Politics (See Review p. 28). He is also rapidly developing new specialist courses, gradually writing a second book on Labour politics, and slowly learning Welsh. (See also Honours and Awards). Taylor, C. D. (1968) has been appointed Headmaster of Culcheth Hall School for girls, Altrincham, Cheshire, from 1st September Thornton, A. D. (1985) has successfully completed the R.I.C.S. Test of Professional Competence and is now a qualified chartered surveyor. Toeman, E. A. (1946), formerly Registrar of the Shoreditch County Court, has become a District Judge under the terms of the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990, still sitting at Shoreditch. Tose, N. L.

(1957) has started another three years as Dean of Arts at Rhodes University, Grahamstown. He is more heavily involved in administration than teaching or research these days, but has produced a report on preschools in the Queenstown region. He writes that "The Universities are under pressure from the State to stop growing, from the black communities to increase black enrolments (despite the virtual collapse of black schooling in many areas), and from the market to produce well-trained graduates - often conflicting pressures". Of the general situation he wrote (Christmas 1990) "The 1990s have come upon us like a tornado - nothing will ever be quite the same again, and it is impossible to capture the confusion of hopes and fears, unfolding visions and bloody scenarios in a single page. The University and Grahamstown have seemed to be at the eye of the storm - enjoying a year as calm as any in the 1980s. But the same has been true of most "white" suburbs and most rural areas - it has been in the peri-urban slums and in black parts of Natal that the battles have been fought. The price that the peaceful areas pay is in taxation, inflation, unemployment and a modest decline in living standards. For the analytically inclined, we seem to be moving from a "race" stratified society to a class stratified society - a path which could have been chosen at Union in 1910 to better effect". Willett, G. F. (1946) recently retired to Bedford after many years as librarian of Ripon College. Williams, Wing Commander S. R. (1926) retired from the R.A.F. more than twenty years ago at the age of sixty. Upon retiring, S. R. taught General Studies at Wandsworth Technical College and made up his own syllabus as he went along; he simply taught anything he thought interesting, and found Whitaker's Almanac very useful! 'SR' now

70 68 St Catharine's College Society Magazine lives on his own at Stoke Manderville his wife died some years ago and he fends for himself, doing all the cleaning, shopping, cooking and gardening necessary to live an independent life. He is President of the Royal British Legion Club in Wendover. 'SR' also continues with his hobby of clock repairing. Wilson, D. J. (1960) "Dave ran his own business in Kinlochleven providing sailing, walking and climbing courses. It was during one of these courses whilst climbing on Skye with a client that he fell sustaining head injuries. His client made Dave secure and went to raise the alarm. When the rescuers arrived on the scene it was discovered that Dave had untied and tried to make the descent alone, he fell again - this time to his death. This happened on 8 August 1990 on the Central Peak of Bidein Druim nan Ramh, Cuillin Main Ridge, Isle of Skye." His ashes were scattered on 1st September on Loch Leven. This was followed, in the evening, by a ceilidh. Here his friends were reminded of one of his other great loves: folk music, (see Oban Times ) Wilson-Johnson, D. (1970) has been travelling around the world, pursuing his career as a bass-baritone. Since singing the title role of St Wing Cmdr. S. R. Williams Francois d'asise with the L.P.O. for Messian's eightieth birthday, and winning the Evening Standard's Award for Opera, his last two years have been fully committed with concerts, opera and recordings. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in 1988 and has recently been giving masterclasses there. He received particular commendation last autumn for a performance of Lutoslawski's Les espaces du sommeil (1975), for baritone and orchestra, which he performed with the B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra in the Festival Hall. In July he will be teaching again at the Summer Singing School he has run for the last five years at Ferrandou, his farmhouse in South-West France. Winstanley, R. J. (1967) is a solicitor in practice with David Burgess (1966) in London, under the name Winstanley - Burgess. * * * Members of College wishing to make contact with any of the above, or others, are welcome to ring The Manciple on for current addresses in so far as they are known.

GRADUATE PARLOUR Another year has passed smoothly through the Christoher Waddams Room. With the graduate accommodation in Newnham Croft gaining the widespread approval of the inaugural occupants last year, the block has again been used to its full potential, fostering a social life for the 1st years housed there. Security in the MCR itself has tightened, and we have managed to hold on to both video recorder and television throughout the twelve months. However, the real attraction that has seen the MCR busy of late, is the introduction of biscuits to accompany the tea and coffee normally on offer. Graduates are a simple breed. Social events have been varied, and strong links forged with both Christ's College and Hughes Hall. Inter-Collegiate quizzes, barbecues and discos have complemented the exchange dinner scheme. The triumphs of the MCR football, rounders and cricket teams are already legendary. Catz graduates have again been active in University life, ranging from positions on the GU Council, gaining representative honours in Athletics, Rugby League/Union and Shooting, to the performing arts. Academically, the MCR members have given interviews to newspapers and had submissions accepted by journals such as the prestigious 'Nature'. The strong bias towards Chemistry has been softened by the recent diverse intake of disciplines which make for interesting conversation. With the summer fast approaching, graduate life comes into its own and we look forward to a satisfying end to the year. Philip Birchall President of the Middle Combination Room

71 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 69 Sinister Doings! Left Wing Cambridge and Cath's in the 1930s Professor O.H.K. Spate (1930)* The early 1930s were rather like the late 1960s in being marked by an upsurge (or a rash?) of left wing student activism; Cambridge and St Catharine's were not exempt. When I came up in 1930 I was vaguely and sentimentally leftish; the scare General Election in late autumn 1931 changed all that, for myself as for many others. I became active on behalf of the Labour candidate for Cambridgeshire, cycling through nights of fog and frost to speak to tiny village audiencs (but we dropped only 1000 votes, almost a miracle that year). Early next term I was summoned to meet the Senior Tutor, Dr H.J. Chaytor, who told me very bluntly that I hadn't been sent to Cambridge to indulge in politics but to get Firsts. I had not then read Cardinal Newman's The Idea of a University so I could not meet him on the high moral ground, and I had just enough sense not to point out that I had already taken a First, in one year, in a Tripos which normally needed two. He made the old parallel between Marx and the Bible, "More often cited than read." In fact I hadn't read Marx, or rather a look at Capital had shown that that tough tome was not for me, but after this what could I do but go for the Manifesto and The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, which are conveniently short; and of course to get more Firsts just to show Chaytor that I could do that and politicize. Up to this point I had been impeccably right wing, in the innocuous Labour Club; now I turned to the Socialist Society, much to the left of the Club and very much making the running. So much so that the leading spirits left in the Labour Club were none other than Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean. Philby one saw now and then, but in the background; not so Burgess, assertive to the point of vulgarity. To good communists not in the know (which meant all but a tiny handful) the traitorous trio seemed utterly inconsistent and opportunist, to be dismissed as "Social Fascists", a term of abuse for social democrats, a few fellow travellers excepted. For Burgess and Maclean this confusing activity was a good cover; they had to indulge in some form of leftish activity to get the right contacts, and yet not be openly and consistently on the far left. This anticipates. The thing that really turned much of Cambridge leftwards which was of course the coming to power of Hitler. A main vehicle of response was the Anti-War and Anti- Fascist Movement launched in Amsterdam in 1933, and in Britain by a big rally in Bermondsey Town Hall. Here the final resolution was moved by Harry Pollitt, secretary of the Communist Party of Great Britain, a former boiler-maker, short, pudgy as a boiler, and very amiable. I have never seen or heard anything like Harry's speech, unforgettable after nearly sixty years. The peroration was an incredibly rapid crescendo during which he "swelled visibly" and turned purple. I had persuaded a very mild contact from Cat's to come with me, and was richly rewarded when he blandly reported that "Mr Pollitt deprecated the rise of Hitlerism." British understatement could not go further. The Cambridge effort was to be a demonstraton on Armistice Day, a march from the Railway Station to Market Hill, timed not to interfere with official ceremonies. By this time I was a Party member and was told off, to my secret dismay, to march on the right hand of the right-hand bearer of the first banner, a place of honour which I thought singularly ill-deserved. However, duty was duty, and there was nothing for it but iron Bolshevik determination. The response took us aback; we had hoped for marchers, the general estimate of the turnout was about a very sizeable fraction of the undergrad population. We had moved heaven and earth to bring in the Student Christian Movement, despite their objectoin to the limiting adjective in the main slogan "Not a man, not a gun, for imperialist war." Eventually they agreed to join, with pacifist reservations, which did not survive the Tory reaction. This took the form of general jostling and a variety of more or less harmless missiles; we made a good deal of, I fear, unscrupulous play with the tomato that hit the War Memorial. The Cambridge police kept things in hand; true, they had not had much experience of demos but of course there were Rugger Cup nights.... There was a piquant incident when a petite and attractive girl handing out leaflets was shouldered into the gutter by one of the opposition. A young man whom I had persuaded to come in with great difficulty, simply slipped out of the march, neatly floored the offender, and stepped back into the pacifist ranks. I am glad to say that he was a Cat's man.

72 70 St Catharine's College Society Magazine It was a dazzling success, and great fun. We didn't have anything so dramatic afterwards, but it was a good start for spreading the gospel. This was basically a matter of infiltration. College societies - literary, historical, scientific - were natural targets; no meeting was left unaddressed on its significance for Marxism or Marxism's significance for it. At Cambridge we never quite rivalled LSE, where the Rugby club was seduced into singing Commie songs in the changing room (as General Booth had quoted "Why should the devil have all the good tunes?")., In marked contrast to the student radicals of the 1960s, whose Tripos was Ohio State, Berkeley and the rioting Paris of 1968, we were assiduous at lectures, and a string of Firsts was regarded as having propoganda value. And of course being a good student was prophylactic; after that interview with Dr Chaytor I went farther and faster on the leftward road, but nothing was said. I did have one moment of mild unease when I applied for a postgraduate scholarship from the Goldsmiths' Company. I needed a reference from the Acting Master, Dr W.H.S. Jones; one meeting, and I felt that I had never met a man of sweeter nature. His reference was in its way a masterpiece; one could sense the dear old man swaying to and fro between the need to tell the truth and the desire not to spoil my chances by doing so; hence while people had been inclined to shun me as a man with Communistic views (they hadn't) I was perfectly loyal and true (to what?) and quite sane and sound really, although not ultra-conservative - phrases indelible in my memory. There was that all too explicit word "Communistic"; if only it had been "advance"! Still I had to chance it, and I assume that the Company felt that with a longer spell at Cambridge I might mellow down and become a Tory. I am much mellower but still no Tory. The Party was as good as the British Army in picking me for jobs for which I felt completely unfitted - better in fact, for in the Army I did end in a job for which my geographical training was dead right. But nothing in my past life prepared me for being assigned as Harry Pollitt's personal protector when he spoke in Cambridge Guildhall. I and a comrade detected a couple of shady characters dodging about the cavernous backstage; after some farcical sleuthing we came face to face and they turned out to be Harry's bodyguard from London. There had been a slip in liaison. Well, it's history now, nothing for either boasting or shame, just experience, a perfectly natural experience in the climate of the times. Useful too: I think everyone needs an illiberal as well as a liberal education if one wishes to understand the ways of the world, and my illiberal Party education enabled me to take the measure both of denunciations and illusions of Communism, and other politics. To compare small things with great, Gibbon thought that having been a captain of Hampshire Grenadiers was not useless to the historian of the Roman Empire. A few grains of political participation can outweigh a kilo of bookish theory. Also it was great fun. *Professor Spate was formerly Professor of Geography, in the Research School of Pacific Studies, Australian National University. Readers will recall his three-volune work The Pacific Since Magellan, c.f Magazine, p. 44, "A magnum opus of great distinction" (J.A.S.) and 1989 Magazine p. 36 "Magesterial authority" (M.D.I.C.) - Ed. COLLEGE STAFF Mr Alex Precuik retired in September 1990 after thirty-seven years service. He joined the College in 1953 as a Kitchen Porter, and was trained as a chef under the Kitchen Manager (Jack Rooke). In 1979 he transferred to the Maintenance Department. At a reception held in the Long Gallery, the President paid tribute to his loyalty and long service, and presented a watch together with a cheque from the Fellows and Staff of the College. On Thursday the 20th December 1990 a successful Coffee morning was held in the O.C.R. for College Pensioners. Fifteen Pensioners and their guests returned to reminisce with Fellows and senior staff. Mrs Florence Souter, bedmaker on Hobsons staircase for many years died on 21st June 1991.

These are of interest, not only as adornments to the Senior Combination Room, but also because Sir Henry headed a Catharine Hall dynasty which merits a brief notice in our history: [Sir Henry Bunbury, d. 1687] Sir Henry Bunbury (d. 1733) William Bunbury (d. 1748) adm. College 1694 adm. College 1695 Henry Bunbury (d. 1722) Sir William Bunbury (d. 1771) adm. College 1720 adm. College 1720 died in residence Fellow 1733 Sir Thomas Charles Bunbury (d. 1821) Henry William Bunbury (d. 1811) adm. College 1756 adm. College 1768 Fellow Commoner Fellow Commoner The Sir Henry of our portrait had already succeeded as third baronet when he was admitted in 1694 as a 'nobleman': a superior category of undergraduate, not confined to the peerage, who were entitled to special privileges (including an elaborate gown encrusted with gold or silver lace, and the right to take an honorary M.A. without examination). His younger brother was admitted a few months later as a humble pensioner. Both were pupils of Mr Lea, and their tutorial accounts survive in the College archives; the tradesmen's bills show that a nobleman lived a distinctly more comfortable existence than a nobleman's younger brother. William, obliged to make his own way in the world, proceeded to the Inner Temple, and was called to the Bar in He practised principally in the Court of the Exchequer, and for many years before his retirement in 1742 occupied the rank of Post-man. The Post-man of the Exchequer, so called because he sat next to the post supporting the ceiling, was the senior 'junior' barrister and had precedence before all king's counsel in private causes; the title disappeared in Bunbury was also attorney-general to the county palatine of Chester, and became a bencher of the Inner Temple in 1725; his office of Reader (1734), though no longer requiring any lectures, entitled him to have his coat of arms hung in the Hall of the Inn, where (twice repainted) it remains yet. Bunbury is still remembered for his reports of Exchequer cases in the time of George I and George II, which (though not intended for the press) were published by his son-in-law Mr Serjeant Wilson in Sir Henry, on the other hand, pursued the life of a country squire and member of parliament; he represented Chester in nine parliaments from 1701 as a High Church Tory with Jacobite leanings. His principal distinction at Westminster seems to have been that of voting against the administration in every division between 1715 and 1727 (when he lost his seat). His two sons, Henry and William, were both Catharine men. The elder, Henry, died in his second year of residence in This did not deter the baronet from sending up his next son, William, who was admitted in 1727 and became a Fellow in 1733 (the year he succeeded to his father's title). Sir William may have been the only baronet Fellow before Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer was elected an Honorary Fellow exactly 250 years later. William was ordained, and (after giving up his fellowship to marry) settled in Suffolk, where the family had acquired estates from the Hanmer inheritance. The Rev. Sir William Bunbury naturally sent his two sons to Catharine Hall. The elder (Thomas Charles), who eventually succeeded as fifth baronet, came up as a Fellow Commoner in This required a present of silver, and the two fine candlesticks (by William Cafe) which

77 St Catharine's College Society Magazine 75 William Bunbury. Admitted (d. 1748). he gave have graced the high table ever since. They bear the Bunbury arms (on a bend three chessrooks) and the inscription: Ex dono Thomae Car oil Bunbury Socio-commensalis filii natu maximi Domini Gulielmi Bunbury Baronetti de Stanney in Com: Cest: et de Mildenhall in Com: Suff. After going down, Thomas went on a grand tour, and brought back from Venice a small sixteenth-century painting of St Catharine, which he gave the College (and which we also still possess). He was readmitted to the College as a 'nobleman' on inheriting his baronetcy in Elected as Tory member for Suffolk at the age of 21, Bunbury at once attracted attention by his impudent maiden speech attacking Pitt, but he seems to have achieved as much distinction on the racecourse as at Westminster; he was, indeed, the first winner of the Derby. After veering too far into opposition, speaking against the government's American policy after 1777, he lost his seat in He was, however, re-elected in 1790 and spent a second parliamentary career from 1790 to 1812 as a moderate Whig, supporting humanitarian causes such as the improvement of conditions for transported prisoners and the abolition of the slave-trade, not to mention the reduction of the length of speeches in the Commons ('by which the public business is so impeded').

78 76 St Catharine's College Society Magazine Sir Henry Bunbury, Bt. Admitted (d. 1733). Thomas's brother Henry William was better treated than his great-uncle William, for (though the younger brother) he came up with the status of a Fellow Commoner. His present to the Fellows likewise survives, though it is less often seen. It is a cruet of five pieces, inscribed: Ex Dono Henrici Bunbury Socio Commensalis filii natu minoris Domini Gulielmi Bunbury Baronetti de Stanney in Com: Cest: et de Mildenhall in Com: Suff:. Henry was the most celebrated of all the brood, and earned a place in the Dictionary of National Biography as a caricaturist. His best remembered work was the booklet of equestrian caricatures, An Academy for Grown Horsemen, first published in 1787 under the pseudonym Geoffrey Gambado. He also produced some academical sketches, including 'The Hopes of the Family' (engraved by Bretherton in 1774), which has a casual-looking Fellow Commoner standing in the background while arrangements for admission are made with a well-fed don, presumably his prospective Tutor. These drawings depicting life at an ancient university must surely reflect something of Catharine Hall in the 1760s. They deserve a separate notice in our Magazine at a later date.
