Decree (4): Establishment of Honour School
of Classical Archaeology and Ancient History

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Literae
Humaniores Board and the Committee for Archaeology and with the
concurrence of the General Board, establishes a new Honour School of

and has at its centre the two dominant classical cultures of Greece
and Rome. The course is designed to complement both the existing
Archaeology and Anthropology degree and Classical Mods and Greats. It

currently takes A-level Classical Civilisation and wishes to pursue
study of the archaeology and history of the ancient world without at
this stage focusing primarily on the ancient languages. It is
intended to admit between twelve and sixteen candidates a year within
existing student numbers.

2 Promulgation of Statute

Statute: Nomination of Delegates of the University Press

Explanatory note

There is currently a special committee, appointed by Council and the
General Board, for the nomination of the Delegates of the University
Press. Under the new governance structures which are due to come into
effect next Michaelmas Term, the consideration of most appointments
by the new Council to committees and other bodies will become the
responsibility of its General Purposes Committee. The Nominating
Committee has therefore proposed, and Council and the Board have
agreed, that it be discharged and that in future nominations of
delegates be made by means of recommendations by the General Purposes
Committee to the new Council. The following statute provides
accordingly.

WHEREAS it is expedient to change the arrangements for the
nomination of Delegates of the University Press, THE UNIVERSITY
ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

1 In Tit. VIII, Sect. II, cl. 2 (6)-(22)
(Statutes, 1997, p. 56), delete `and the General Board
... below'.

2 Ibid., cl. 4, delete `Council and the
General Board shall appoint ... (e) Council and the General
Board' and substitute `Council'.

3 Ibid., cl. 5 (p. 57), delete `and the
General Board'.

4 This statute shall be effective from the
same date as the Statute approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999,
subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, concerning new
governance structures for the University (Gazette, Vol.
129, pp. 1323, 1482).

QUEEN'S ANNIVERSARY PRIZES FOR HIGHER AND
FURTHER EDUCATION

These prizes are awarded in biennial competitions to educational institutions
in the UK. Their main purpose is to recognise the outstanding contribution
that universities and colleges make to the intellectual, economic, cultural, and
social life of the nation. The prize competitions are of the highest standard
and prestige, and seek to attract the widest possible range of activities and
projects.

The next round will be held in 2000, and the closing date for entries will be
31 March. Each institution may submit one entry. A university working
group—with members drawn from a wide range of disciplines—has
been set up to select the University's entry for the 2000 competition.

The selection group now invites interested staff within departments and
faculties to produce outlines for entries, which need not be longer than one
side of A4. Those interested should contact Ms Samantha Jones, University
Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70563, e-mail:
Samantha.Jones@admin.ox.ac.uk), who can provide further information to assist
in the preparation of outline entries, and answer any queries.

Outlines should be sent to Ms Jones by Friday, 7 January, at the
latest. The selection group will then recommend to Council which proposal
should be chosen to be developed into a full entry.

COMPUTING SERVICES


World-wide Web changes

As from 1 December, all non-exempt World-Wide Web traffic is being diverted
automatically through a `proxy cache' in Oxford, which then passes it through
the national `cache'.

This is being done to reduce the cost of incoming Web traffic, since
no `charge' is made for USA traffic directed through the national cache. These
charges are reflected in the annual sum which the University has to pay to
UKERNA, the agency which runs Janet, the national network; this sum this
year amounts to £143,000.

The cache acts as a repository of recently-acquired Web pages, so
that two or more people accessing the same page only incur one `fetch' from
the supplying site.

There is no action required in order to use the cache, since this is
done automatically. Users should see a speed-up in some accesses, but a
slow-down in others (with the balanced weighted towards the latter at this
stage).

Certain Web sites are exempt (and automatically bypass this
mechanism). These are mostly electronic resources to which the University
subscribes, and which require direct access for subscription-verification
purposes.

Any user who is denied a requested Web page should do the
following:
(i) check that the Web address is correct; (ii) check that the site is one which
he or she normally has permission to access; (iii) report the problem to the
user's local IT support person, to verify the above and forward to OUCS; (iv)
through the IT support person, report the problem to OUCS at e-mail address
cache@oucs.ox.ac.uk, as indicated on the following Web pages.

The Web pages at http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/proxies/ give further
information about this initiative.

the class, and without restriction to members of the college. Each group
receives about forty minutes of tuition. The atmosphere is informal.

There is no charge for performers or for audience. Potential performers are

Pilates is the buzzword in fitness today—yet it has
already been delivering results for well over 80 years, during which time its
devotees have included leading figures from the worlds of film, dance and
professional sport. Pilates is a very safe, effective form of exercise, which
works by strengthening the core postural muscles of the body, re-balancing
and bringing it back into correct alignment, resulting in a longer, leaner
body. The exercises are performed in a slow, controlled way, bringing long-
term results. It is also a great way of relieving unwanted stress and tension.
There is a massive demand for Pilates throughout the country and, as a
result, there is a shortage of qualified instructors. Valerie Downing is a
member of the Body Control Pilates Association, Europe's largest Pilates
professional body and is now teaching the method at various locations
throughout the county. Class numbers are limited to an absolute maximum of
twelve so that a high level of personal tuition and supervision can be given.
Beginners classes are suitable for first time exercisers. Tel.: Oxford 730429 for
further information.
