£130 was spent on the magazine-rack and partition in the common common-room last year. Now, how about some magazines! Although there are many of this year's, and 1950 and 1949 publications, there are some which, date back to 1942. It seems that only one club takes any interest, in informing other students of their activities.

Where are magazines sponsored by the Charter Club, the Literary Society, and other clubs? Perhaps the Association could subsidise the purchase of some current magazines.
