 Meeting, it was indeed good to see the place full.
     The social and athletic awards, which were announced
 then, are printed in this edition of FELIX. If you ai;e on the
 list you may purchase from the Bookshop a tie or pendant.
 However, don't rush along now, wait for a certificate to be
 sent to you in the internal post. This must be presented
 when you go to buy it. Congratulations to you all.

 at C o l l e g e since 1967), T i m Hillyer and myself.
