Sports Council

The business of the Sports Council Is to be taken up with this Executive as, due to the atrocious mismanagement of the last Exec nothing could be done.

Tournament will soon be on us again. This time we are looking forward to a better showing, although some Clubs have not done too well recently. It would appear that more practice is necessary so get stock Into It and don't let's see such a miserable performance as we had last time.

On the occasion of the annual Oxford - Cambridge athletic meet earlier this year, Roger Bannister, England's star miler, had a plan.

It was his intention to dead-heat with a friend of his. However, during the course of the third lap. Bannister was forced to re-examine the situation. A Cambridge runner was streaking away from the field. Roger got into gear, [unclear: lore] away and overhauled the upstart, and went away to win in near-record time.

And the Cambridge runner? His name was Clem Hawke, a year or so well known around V.U.C. running circles.
