submitted by or on behalf of the person concerned), copies of any other documents intended to be produced at the hearing, a list of the witnesses whom it is proposed to call, and statements of the evidence that they are expected to give. The board

limits for each stage of the proceedings, to the intent that the case shall be heard and determined by the board as expeditiously as is reasonably practicable consonantly with the principles of justice and fairness. Within the limits of that intent,
any meeting of the board may nevertheless be postponed or adjourned at the discretion of the chairman.

(c) Determination

15. A Medical Board shall not determine that any person to whom Title XVI applies shall be required to retire on medical grounds unless it is satisfied that the person's physical or mental incapacity has been established, and it shall apply the civil
standard of proof in so satisfying itself.

(2) the board's other findings of fact; and

(3) the reasons for the board's decision.

The secretary of the board shall ensure that a copy of the document is sent to the person concerned, to his or her representative (if any), to the person responsible for presenting the case to the board, and to the Vice-Chancellor and also that a copy
of Title XVI, Part V, concerning Appeals, together with sub-section 4 of this section, accompanies the copy of the document sent to the person concerned.

CONGREGATION 14 November 2 p.m.

Promulgation of Statutes

Explanatory note to Statute (1)

Council and the General Board have, on the recommendation of their joint Standing Committee on Standing Committees, reviewed the existing provisions of Tit. XIV, Sect. III, cll. 1 and 2 (Statutes, 1995, p. 108). Under these provisions, no
person who has exceeded the age of 70 years may be appointed to any body set up by or under the authority of the statutes, other than Congregation (members of which, however, normally cease to be eligible when, by reason of age, they are no longer eligible
for membership of their faculty or sub-faculty) or Convocation; provided that a member of such a body who is over the age of 70 years, but has not attained the age of 75 years at the time when the period for which he or she was last appointed expires,
may be reappointed by a vote of the appointing body carried by not less than two-thirds of the members of that body present and voting (with special provision for the corresponding approval of Council in cases where an appointment is vested in one or
two persons only).

Council and the Board have endorsed the view that members of the academic staff should normally cease with effect from the date of their retirement to be eligible to serve on committees and other university bodies (expressly including Congregation, but
excluding faculties and sub-faculties): once members of staff have retired, they are inevitably less in touch with the central activities of the University than when they were in post. Council and the Board also think that there should be an age limit
for external members of university bodies which corresponds to the normal age of retirement. In both categories, however, exceptional circumstances will arise, and there ought therefore to be provision for the limit (except for membership of Congregation)
to be waived in individual cases in a relatively straightforward manner. The following statute, and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is approved, provide accordingly.

(1) WHEREAS it is expedient to change the age limit for members of university bodies, NOW THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, in exercise of the powers in that behalf conferred upon it by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923, and of all other powers enabling it, ENACTS, clause 1 being subject to the approval of Her Majesty in Council, AS FOLLOWS.

1 In Tit. II, Sect. II, cl. 1, concerning the composition of Congregation (Statutes, 1995, p. 5), before `Congregation shall consist' insert `Subject to such limit on membership by reason of retirement or age as may be prescribed
by Congregation by statute,'.

2 In Tit. VI, Sect. I, cl. 2, proviso (iii), concerning faculties (p. 40), delete `.' and substitute `;' and insert proviso (iv):

`(iv) no person who has exceeded the age of 70 years shall be made a member of a faculty, provided that a member of a faculty who has attained that age but has not attained the age of 75 years may remain a member, for a period (or successive periods)
which (or each of which) shall not exceed twelve months, subject to a vote of the relevant faculty board carried by not less than two-thirds of the members of that board present and voting, and provided further that in no case shall any person remain
a member of a faculty after attaining the age of 75 years.'

3 In Tit. VIII, Sect. II, cl. 3, concerning the Delegates of the University Press (p. 55), delete `In no circumstances ... after his or her 67th birthday.'

4 In Tit. XIV, Sect. III, cl. 1, concerning the composition of committees (p. 108), delete `Congregation and'; and after `Convocation,' insert `faculties, and sub-faculties,'.

5 Ibid., delete cl. 2 and substitute:

`2. No person appointed or serving as a member of a committee while holding any of the university or college posts specified in Tit. II, Sect. II, cl. 1 (5)–(10) shall continue to serve on that committee after having retired from such post (or, in the
case of a person retiring at different dates from such university and college posts previously held by him or her, after the date of the later of such retirements), and no person who has previously retired from any of the university or college posts
specified in Tit. II, Sect. II, cl. 1 (5)–(10), and who does not continue to hold another such post, shall be appointed a member of a committee, unless Council, by a vote carried by not less than two-thirds of the members present and voting, shall
otherwise determine in an individual case. No other person appointed or serving as a member of a committee while not holding such a university or college post shall continue to serve on that committee, and no such person shall be appointed a member
of a committee, after the 30 September immediately preceding his or her 66th birthday, unless Council, by a vote carried by not less than two-thirds of the members present and voting, shall determine otherwise in an individual case. The said powers
of Council shall not, however, be exercisable in relation to membership of Congregation, and in no case shall any member of a committee continue in office after attaining the age of 75 years.

3. The provisions of clause 2 above shall not apply to the Chancellor, the High Steward, the Deputy Steward, the Counsel to the University, or the Clerks of the Market'.

6 Ibid., renumber existing cll. 3–6 as cll. 4–7.

7 Ibid., cl. 4, as renumbered, after `provided in' insert `Tit. II, Sect. III, cl. 7,'.

8 The provisions of this statute which govern membership of Congregation shall be effective from the date on which clause 1 is approved by Her Majesty in Council; the remaining provisions shall have immediate effect, provided that all
persons currently serving on university committees shall be eligible to continue so to serve until the end of their present period of office, or, unless and to the extent that they are already permitted by decree to serve after having attained the
age of 75 years, until they attain that age if they do so earlier than the end of their present period of office.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is approved

1 In Ch. I, Sect. IX, cl. 1, concerning membership of Congregation (Statutes, 1995, p. 198), delete item (10) and renumber existing items (11)–(13) as items (10)–(12).

2 In Ch. III, Sect. LXXXV, cl. 4, concerning the Delegacy of the University Press (p. 330), delete `In no circumstances ... 67th birthday.'

3 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 1995, provided that clause 1 shall not apply to any person who held the title of Emeritus Professor on 30 September 1995.

SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

The following speech was delivered by THE PUBLIC ORATOR in a Congregation held on Saturday, 21 October 1995, in presenting for the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters

Mr ARTHUR MILLER

Graeci poetas tragicos cum fabulas suas in scaenam mitterent <didaskein>, id est docere, dicebant; hic quem produco summum inter tragicos locum diu adeptus, nam aequalem fere videmus Sophoclis illius qui Athenienses suos mollissima sed
eadem ferocissima illa fabula delectavit qua Oedipus lucum Coloneum revisit, ita tragoedias suas disponit ut auditores cum fortissimum misericordiae timorisque adfectum sentiant, tum aliquid cogitatione dignum de hominum natura deque civitatis indole
discant. nempe quod dicit Horatius poeta meminimus omnes, cum de optimo carminum genere verba faciebat:

omne tulit punctum qui miscuit utile dulci.
[1]

hic est qui mercatoris vitam necemque cothurno tragico non indignam esse arbitratus hominis volgaris curas cum Agamemnonis Pentheique aerumnis quodam modo aequavit; hic, qui istam quaestionem de veneficis sagisque summa cum crudelitate olim habitam, in
qua miseras mulieres circumstrepebat undique sartago flagitiosorum facinorum,
[2] ita ante spectantium oculos posuit ut ne stulti quidem ignorarent suam rem agi, suorum temporum clades repraesentari. nec deerat huic occasio inquisitorum qui tum grassabant minas et adrogantiam experiendi; in qua demonstravit
quam vere dixerit poeta

est et fideli tuta silentio merces.
[3]

cordi sunt huic spinosae illae de officiis quaestiones, quibus inretatos et laborantes ostendit homines nostri haud dissimiles, quos dum spectamus ita de nobis fabulam narrari sentimus ut de genere humano haudquaquam desperandum esse credamus, in pessimo
quoque aliquid inesse rationis mentisque bonae quo afficimur ipsi; et quidem nobis ostendit senem intelligere et confiteri coactum non alienos esse eos quibus commodi sui causa nocuerit sed universos tam liberorum suorum loco esse quam eos quos genuerat
ipse. nuperrime in Vitrearia ad propositum quod semper in deliciis habuit reversus cives depinxit dum nil agunt nimis facile publicis sceleribus et tyrannide oppressos. illis se ducem et signiferum professus qui ab omni importuna dominatione, omni inepta
aut superba librorum veritatisque repressione historiam et studia nostra vindicant, diu consilio praefuit ab ipsa penna cognominato quod libertatem sentiendi scribendique tutatur. nostrum nuper factum esse gaudemus, qui hic tenuerit cathedram, praeclaras
habuerit lectiones, litterarum vere humanarum praebuerit exemplum.

Praesento nostrorum temporum Sophoclem, libertatis propugnatorem acerrimum, mentis humanae scrutatorem perspicacissimum, Arturum Miller, ut admittatur honoris causa ad gradum Doctoris in Litteris.

Paraphrase

Among the ancient Greeks it was said of a tragic poet, when he put on a play, that he `taught' it; and our guest today has had much to teach us about human nature and human society in his writings for the stage. He has long been in the first rank of
serious playwrights, being now at the age at which Sophocles produced that beautiful but terrible tragedy, Oedipus at Colonus. His plays do not only give the audience, in the most intense form, the emotions of pity and fear: they also give
them material for serious thought. He has fulfilled the well known demand of the poet Horace, that the truly successful poet should combine instruction with delight. Mr Miller is the man who considered the Death of a Salesman to be a subject no less fit
for tragic treatment than that of King Agamemnon or King Lear. He brought on to the stage those fearful trials for witchcraft in which the unhappy victims were surrounded by a hissing Crucible of denunciation and hysteria, and he did it in a way that
sho wed the spectator the immediacy and relevance of those events to their own lives. He was not spared the experience of a menacing and over-mighty inquisition; on that occasion he demonstrated the truth of the poet, that `Loyalty and silence have their
reward'. What he likes to deal with are the spiky questions of morality, in which he shows us people like ourselves entangled and struggling. As we watch them, we feel that the story is applicable to us, too; but that we should be wrong to despair of
humanity, and even the worst characters can be humanly understood. We share the experience of the father who is forced to realise and to admit that the young men he injured for the sake of his own interest were not indifferent strangers but in truth All
My Sons. In his recent play Broken Glass he has returned to a favourite theme; the paralysis of private citizens in the face of public evil. A champion of freedom against every form of oppression, censorship, and falsehood, he has been President
of PEN and active in its defence of freedom of thought and expression. We are proud that he has recently become one of us, holding the Cameron Mackintosh Chair and giving a set of splendid lectures, an example of true humanity in literature. I present
the Sophocles of our generation, a fearless fighter for freedom, a matchless observer of the human heart, Arthur Miller, for admission to the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters.

PROCEDURES IN CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor will on 31 October declare carried Statute (1) which was promulgated on 10 October, concerning procedures in Congregation (see `University Agenda' above). Para. 15 of the guide to those procedures (Statutes, 1995, p. 23;
Examination Decrees, 1995, p. 1066) is accordingly amended by the deletion of the existing second sentence and the substitution of `If such a resolution is published in the Gazette at least nineteen days in advance (e.g. on the
Thursday of First Week), Council may require that any member of Congregation who proposes to oppose the resolution should notify the Registrar in writing by noon on the eighth day before the meeting (e.g. on the Monday of Third Week); if so, and in the
absence of such notification from at least two members, the resolution shall be declared carried without question put unless the matter is adjourned (see para. 24 below). In such circumstances the meeting of Congregation may be cancelled. If on the other
hand the resolution is not published at least nineteen days in advance (or if Council does not require advance notice of opposition), then at the meeting twelve (or more) members of Congregation may, by rising in their places, prevent the moving of the
resolution, and the procedures which were to have been suspended accordingly remain in force.'

The first sentence of para. 24 (p. 26 and p. 1068 respectively) is amended by the deletion of `category (a), (b), or (g)' and the substitution of `category (b) or (g), or category (a) if advance notice
of opposition has not been required (see para. 15 above)'.

EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES CENTRE

The Educational Technology Resources Centre (or ETRC) provides various audiovisual and television services for all institutions within the University as well as for individual members of the University. The major services available are:

  • loan or hire of a wide range of items of audiovisual equipment, ranging from 35-mm slide projectors to a portable data projector for use with PCs or Macintoshes, and also including videocameras and audio equipment;
  • videotape copying, including conversion between PAL tapes (as used in the UK and various European countries), NTSC (as used in North America and Japan), and SECAM (as used in France and various other countries);
  • self-access videotape editing in either VHS/SVHS or Video 8/Hi 8 formats; this facility is particularly useful for those wishing to show extracts from a longer tape in a lecture or tutorial;
  • a full video production service, utilising broadcast quality equipment, for those wishing to make complete programmes for use in research or teaching, or for documentary recording of special events, or for any other purpose where professional quality
    video might be required.

Other services available include conference support, advice on the choice of audiovisual or video equipment, and assistance in the creation of multimedia software.

For further details of these services, or advice on any other aspect of audiovisual or television facilities, please contact the ETRC by telephone on (2)70526, or by e-mail on ETRC@etrc.ox.ac.uk.

Additional information about the ETRC and the services it provides can also be found in the ETRC's World Wide Web pages which are accessible either via the University's main information server or directly at http://www.etrc.ox.ac.uk.

Workshops and demonstrations

The following workshops and demonstrations are being organised by the ETRC during Michaelmas Term.

1 November: using a camcorder

This workshop is intended for those who wish to use a video camera (camcorder) to prepare video material for use in their teaching or research. Participants will all use a camera to make a short recording, and attention will be paid to the common faults
exhibited by inexperienced users, and how best to avoid them.

15 November: making audio recordings

This workshop is intended for those needing to make good quality sound recordings, and will include topics such as the choice and use of microphones and the choice of working environment.

22 November: presenting computer displays in lectures

This session will take the form of a demonstration rather than a hands-on workshop, and will utilise the ETRC's loanable video projector, as well as other display systems, to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of the various forms of displaying
computer output to audiences of various sizes.

29 November: editing videotapes

This workshop is intended primarily for those who wish to select sequences from one or more video recordings and copy them in sequence to a second tape for use in lectures or tutorials, but will also be of interest to those with more creative aims. Those
attending will also learn how to use the self-access VHS and Hi 8 edit suites installed for general use within the ETRC.

All workshops and demonstrations will take place in the ETRC, 37 Wellington Square, starting at 5 p.m. on lasting for about one hour.

In order to allow each workshop to be tailored to the needs of the participants, all those attending are asked to complete a short questionnaire a few days before the workshop outlining their previous experience in this field, if any, and any particular
interests or problems that they may have. In certain situations, if the questionnaires indicate too wide a range of experience, it may be desirable to split the group into two parts and to arrange a new date for one of these sub-groups.
For this reason, all those wishing to attend should register in advance, no later than the Monday preceding the workshop.

Places may be booked on any course either by telephone on (2)70526, or by e-mail to ETRC@etrc.ox.ac.uk.

More information about the workshops and demonstrations can be found in the ETRC's WWW pages: see information above.

Wingate Scholarships 1996

Wingate Scholarships are awarded to individuals of great potential or proven excellence who need financial support to undertake pioneering or original work of intellectual, scientific, artistic, social, or environmental value and to outstandingly talented
musicians for advanced training.

The work undertaken may be in the context of a higher degree, but awards are not normally made for professional training, standard taught courses, electives, or the completion of projects already begun. Wingate Scholarships can be held for up to three
years and the average total award is £7,500 (the maximum in any one year is £10,000).

Applicants must satisfy the Scholarships Committee that they need financial support to undertake the work projected; be citizens of the United Kingdom or other Commonwealth country, or Israel; be resident in the British Isles during the application period;
be over twenty-four years of age on 1 September 1996; and show good reason why the proposed work is not eligible for Research Council, British Council, or major agency funding.

For more detailed information and application forms, write to the Administrator, Wingate Scholarships, 38 Curzon Street, London W1Y 8EY, enclosing a stamped, addressed, A4-size envelope. The closing date for applications is 1 February 1996, but candidates
are strongly advised to send for forms well in advance of this date. Interviews of short-listed candidates will be held in London in May, and results will be announced in June 1996.

ASG Bursaries 1995–6

The Academic Study Group is a British charitable foundation which promotes collaboration between British scholars and their Israeli counterparts. In 1995–6, the ASG will offer sixteen travel bursaries to Israel for scholars of any field. Priority will
be given to first-time visitors to Israel, to scholars who have already corresponded with Israeli colleagues, or who have received invitations to lecture/explore joint research programmes in Israel, and to scholars researching comparative UK–Israeli studies.
Applications will be reviewed towards the end of November 1995, and again in March 1996. Further information may be obtained from John D.A. Levey, ASG, 25 Lyndale Avenue, London NW2 2QB (fax: 0171-794 0291).

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS

Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 1996

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture at the Schools in Hilary Term 1996 could inform the Clerk of the Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary
to know whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred persons is required; only the three large writing-schools will accommodate more than that number.

Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the end of the seventh week of Hilary Term.

Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be notified in advance.
