Professor W. J. L. Ryan, head
of both faculties concerned, has already selected the sopnisters. They
will be paid £12 a term.
Clearly the idea is to bring the
student-lecturer ratio down to a
reasonable level. This year 150

compared with 50 only three years
ago- The number of faculty members has not risen proportionately.
Many Junior Freshmen are unhappy with the arrangement. "I’m
sure there are several Senior Sophisters bright enough and qualified
enough", remarked one Freshman,
"I wonder if there are twelve?"
There were more caustic comments from other years and much
disgust at the Department for
getting into such a situation.

Trinity’s Republican Club has been granted official recognition as a
College society by the Board. Thus it becomes the first self-proclaimed
society involved in " practical politics" ever to receive official sanction
trom the College authorities.
It was founded following the
50th anniversary of the Easter rebellion and was established in Trinity and UCD last October; it has
since been one of the most active
college societies. Their brushes
with the Special Branch especially,
have gained them great notariety.

PRESIDENT COE RESIGNS-MAJOR
Tim Coe, President of the Phil,
is resigning after an active reign
of only two weeks. Coe, in his
sixth year in College, has failed his
third year exams and is not being
allowed to repeat.

This is the latest development in
the confused and declining fortunes
of the society by constant bickering; the Phil has suffered from a
total lack of direction in the past
year. Following the departure of
Brian Trevaskis who brought new
life to the Phil, Gordon Ledbetter
became President. "He reverted
to the old conservative ways", in
the words of Ian Larmour the present Secretary and eventually resigned after a sordid political intrigue. The third President of the
session, Stephen White, did little
to improve matters. The society
drifted on, with poor audiences and
petty private business-meetings
where attendance rarely reached
the quorum of ten.
It was scarcely surprising that
Norman Glass in the Officers Conduct Report heavily attacked the
state of society. "Apathy and a
lack of cooperation pervade the
officers and there is a complete
lack of any direction in the planning of papers". In addition Larmour, then Treasurer, was refused
even the thanks of the society. To
this day there are no financial
accounts for the session; indeed the
state of the books renders it almost
impossible to find out how money

The affairs of the U.C.D. newspapers, "Awake" and "Campus,"
have recently become the subject
of widespread speculation as a
result of the S.R.C. Executive’s decision to resurrect their "National
The S.R.C. is also reconsidering
its policy of advertising in other

"Awake" have appeared this year.
It is evident that both papers are
seriously affected by the loss of
what amounts to £20 worth of
advertising per issue.
The affair became public in a
Literary and Historical Society debate which emphasised the finance
problems of the National Student,
it was claimed that the publication
costs for the first issue were in the
region of £90. S.R.C. President
Reen denied this, but Jerome Dunleavy, the P.R.O. man, had already
mentioned that the costs were high.
It was for this reason, he said, that
no advertising space was being purchased in the independent papers.
Dunleavy claimed the circulation
of "N.S." was "about a thousand",
while others put the figure at about
At a recent S.R.C. meeting Reen
admitted that it had been difficult

L & H he said that one of the
reasons the SRC had decided to
publish the paper was that "Campus" and "Awake" were not publishing sufficient SRC material. "It
is a good thing," he claimed, "for
"Campus" and "Awake" to realise
where their money is coming from".
The inference is all too obvious.
There is dissatisfaction in the
SRC itself over this question. The
Executive did not even have the
courtesy to inform the Counsellors
of the publication. Many of them
heard nothing of it until the paper
appeared on the stalls.
"Campus" and "Awake", for
their part will have learnt a valuable
lesson from this. Any paper, describing itself as independent should
have an organisation capable of
withstanding set-backs of this sort.
They know the dangers of relying
on an advertiser who wants more
for his money than he contracts for.
Recently the L & H entertained

Despite widely publicised assasination threats, Mr. Rogov succeeded
in .delivering a proletarian enlightenment speech (Part 2 Type A) to

The Human (2hess Game
Spurred on by the possibility of being swamped by seven thousand
U.C.D. students, the Board seems anxious to manoeuvre us into a strong
opening position before the time comes for the major moves towards the
end of this term. The quality of the Trinity degree is being raised, and
still more Irish students are being taken, to the demise of the British
This sudden move by the Board took most of last year’s Junior
Sophisters by complete surprise. Large numbers of Natural Science
students were politely told that it would not be worth their while to stay
on for an honours degree, instead they could leave now with an ordinary
pass degree. The last two years of the General Studies schools can no
longer take re-sits, and this year more Junior Sophisters failed than ever
before. The current rumour is that General Studies will be replaced
by joint hormurs courses.
This year’s failures are the first pawns of the championship. They
will be presented to the U.C.D. Grand Master as evidence of the
academic superiority of Trinity. The Board seems to be in favour of
an Oxbridge-orientated collegiate system, whereas U.C.D. would seem
to prefer a mingling of the two colleges. Some faculties based in Earlsfort Terrace, others in Belfield, and the rest in Trinity itself. The present
high standard of Trinity will be presented as a major factor against a
We should not underestimate the ability of the Board in matters as
important as these, yet the sacrifices they are making appear to be
extraordinary high for the sake of mere tactics.

POETRY OF VISION
AT ROYAL SOCIETY
On the 14th November an
exhibition opens in the R.D.S.,
entitled simply Rose -- Irish for
"’ poetry and vision." This is the
embodiment of the plan of wellknown Dublin architect Michael
Scott to stage an exhibition in
Ireland presenting a form and
focus of contemporary art.
’Some hundred and fifty paintings of the world’s greatest artists,
amongst them Picasso, Francis
Bacon, Soulagef and Rosenberg,
have been selected over the last
few months by three eminent art
critics. They are James Johnson
Sweeney, director of the Gallery of
Modern Art in Houston, Texas,
Karl Sandberg, prominent German
critic and advisor on art to the
Israeli government and Jean le
Marie who mounted the Picasso
.exhibition in Paris last year. The
object of this exhibition is to present the world’s greatest canvasses
painted in the last five years.
Due to its location and its international support (W. J. Grace,
Bord Failte and the Dept. of Finance among others) and the reputation of the selectors, it is free of
the political machinations which
beset so many other world exhibiffous. It is hoped that if it is
successful similar showings will be
held in European capitals every
four years. The paintings will be
hung freely in space under the
direction of artist Pat Scott.
An associated display of ancient
Irish art in the National Museum
will serve to demonstrate Ireland’s
own place as a precursor of modern
art. Unquestionably the exhibition
promises to be one of the greatest
of the centu~ with far reaching
effects, truly bringing poetry of
vision and enhancing the visual
literacy of the nation.

Counsel for the Prosecution: Mr. Dutton, you were born in Zanzibar
with a silver spoon in your mouth. You were accustomed to having
black servants waiting on you hand and foot. They were treated by
yea with studied carelessness.
I exThen you were sent to an exhim,
pensive prep. school and later to
Eton. Here the belief that you
belonged to a privileged elite was
instilled into your already prejuand
diced and impressionable mind.
After Eton you farmed in a British
colony for a year. Although you
had no experience of farming you
were in charge of fifty Africans.
quinYou came to Trinity because you
believed it to be an outpost of the
British Empire. During your so.~rs in
journ here you have been guilty of
tuent~tch utterances as: " I’m all for the
r perIrish coming to Trinity, .... The
colour bar exists primarily in the
minds of coloured people, .... I
would like to be able to do somejtuted
thing for under-privileged people,
but I am’ too concerned with my
own life. I think that this is true
of many people who have anything

that you gave up rugby because

element." Considering what we
know of your background and,
what you choose to call your character, is it at all surprising that
you have been heard to say, "I
have only a few close friends at
Trinity." We ask for your condamnation.
Counsel for the Defence: The
evidence against Mr. Dutton concerning his upbringing in Zanzibar
and his subsequent education can
be dismissed with contempt. He
was educated in an integrated
Government convent in Zanzibar
and he knew Swahili before he
spoke English. He knew Africans
on equal terms. He sees Eton with
objectivity and clearly realises its
paramount faults. Especially he deplores the worship of the amateur,

important aspects of the school. He
could be quoted as saying that he
looks on old Etonians with something more than suspicion. Some,
a minority he believes, are substantially swathed in bluff, affectation and superficially, and are
living on their parents’ money. It
could hardly be said that he believes Eton to be perfect. In
Kenya he was not "in charge of
fifty Africans." There was a head
man who did that, he was merely
an assistant. To quote him, out of
context as saying that he was "all
in favour of the Irish coming to
Trinity" is a complete misinterpretation. What he meant to
say was that he felt that greater
numbers of Southern Irish should
enter the gates, even at the expense
of the English. My client pleads
quilty to the sin of ambition and
admits that he is primarily concerued in this ruthless world with
making a position for himself so

AFRICAN FOODS ARE BACK ! ! !

The most important reason for
his giving up rugby in Trinity was
that he found the pressure of working for "Trinity News," especially
during his terms as Editor, excessive. His views on such
questions as Vietnam, Rhodesia
and South Africa are not so unreasonable as they at first sight
appear. Feeling that the akernatives presented are not feasible or
viable, he reluctantly condones Mr.
Smith’s and Dr. Vooster’s regimes.
He said: "The left wing proposals
which I have heard expressed seem
to me unacceptable and could lead
to a blood bath. Of course there is
no simple solution and I find it
extremely difficuk to compress my
views into a few sentences." The
besmirch of his character in having
few close friends is a dishonest
innuendo. Never being a person to
go out of his way to make friends,
he can nevertheless claim many
close friends who have stayed stalwartly faithful for years. The
charges against Mr. Dutton rest
on the unfair use of quotations
taken out of context, and on a
superficial judgment of his
motives. We plead not guiky.
