CONGREGATION 18 November 2 p.m.

¶ Members of Congregation are reminded that
written notice of any intention to
vote against the preambles of the following statutes,
signed by at least two
members of Congregation, must be given to the Registrar
by noon on Monday, 10
November.


Promulgation of Statutes

Statute (1): Membership of faculties for persons over the
age of 70 years

Explanatory note

A general resolution of Congregation was carried by a
substantial majority in
a postal vote held in Hilary Term, instructing Council
`to restore the
entitlement of members of faculties, together with
Emeritus Professors, to
membership of Congregation until the age of 75'. Council
accordingly promoted
a statute, which was approved unopposed, reversing the
relevant amendments
made in 1995 to the legislation governing membership of
Congregation. As
stated in the explanatory note to that statute
(Gazette, Vol. 127, p. 830),
Council had decided not to do more than it had been
instructed to do by the
special resolution. It therefore did not promote in
addition legislation to
reverse the changes, also made in 1995, to the statute
governing membership of
faculties, whereby faculty boards have subsequently been
required to take an
annual decision (by at least a two-thirds vote) to
continue to include for a
further year the name of a member of the relevant faculty
who is over the age
of 70 years, rather than, as under the previous statutory
formulation, having
to take a decision (which the board could delegate, and
which did not require
a formal vote) only to remove such a name.

Representations have been made to Council that, although
the terms of the
general resolution did not instruct Council to restore
the pre-1995 position
in respect of faculty membership, the spirit of the
resolution, and the views
of the majority in the debate in Congregation in Hilary
Term, were in favour
of the complete restoration of the pre-1995 position.
Council sees the force
of these representations and so promotes the following
statute, which, if
approved, will have that effect.

(1) WHEREAS it is expedient to restore the
previous position in respect of
membership of faculties for persons over the age
of 70 years, THE UNIVERSITY
ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. VI, Sect. I, cl. 2, proviso (iv)
(Statutes, 1997, p. 42), delete `,
for a period ... present and voting' and substitute
`under (c) above'.

Statute (2): Establishment of May Professorship of
Medicine

Explanatory note

Council and the General Board have accepted the case made
by the Clinical
Medicine Board for the upgrading of the May Readership in
Medicine, which is
currently vacant, to a May Professorship of Medicine. The
following statute,
and the decree to be made by Council if the statute is
approved, abolish the
readership and establish the new chair accordingly.

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to establish a
May Professorship of Medicine, THE
UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. XIV, Sect. II, cl. 1 (Statutes,
1997, p. 110), after `Regius
Professorship of Medicine' insert:

`May Professorship of Medicine'.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is
approved

1 In Ch. II, Sect. VI, § 1, SCHEDULE, concerning
official members of
faculty boards (Statutes, 1997, p. 244),
under Clinical Medicine, after
`General Practice2' insert:

`Medicine, May'.

2 Ibid., delete `Medicine, May
Reader in'.

3 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5.
B, SCHEDULE C, concerning professorships (p.
394), after `Regius Professor of Medicine' insert:

`May Professor of Medicine'.

4 Ibid., Sect. III, concerning
particular professorships (p. 475) delete §
205 and substitute:

`§ 205. May Professor of Medicine

1. The May Professor of Medicine shall engage in
advanced study and research
and shall, under the direction of the Nuffield Professor
of Clinical Medicine,
assist in the preparation of candidates for the Degree of
Bachelor of
Medicine.

2. The professor shall be elected by an electoral
board consisting of:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the head of the
college specified in (2) of
this clause is Vice-Chancellor, a person appointed by
Council;

(2) the head of the college to which the
professorship shall be for the time
being allocated by Council under any decree in that
behalf, or, if the head is
unable or unwilling to act, a person appointed by the
governing body of the
college;

(3) a person appointed by the governing body of the
college specified in (2)
of this clause;

(4) a person appointed by Council;

(5), (6) two persons appointed by the General Board;

(7) the Nuffield Professor of Clinical Medicine;

(8), (9) two persons appointed by the Board of the
Faculty of Clinical
Medicine;

(10) a person holding a clinical appointment
appointed by the Oxfordshire
Health Authority.

At least three members of the board, of whom one shall be
a professor, shall

3. The professor shall hold qualifications entitling
him or her to be

towards the stipend and
superannuation of the professor.

5. The professor shall be subject to the General
Provisions of the decree
concerning the duties of professors and to those
Particular Provisions of the
same decree which are applicable to this chair.'

SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

The following speech was delivered by THE PUBLIC ORATOR
in a Congregation held on Saturday, 25 October 1997, in
presenting for the Honorary Degree of Master of Arts

Miss ANNE SMALLWOOD, MBE

Formerly Secretary to the
Vice-Chancellor


Saepenumero apud recentiores rogatum invenimus: quis
summum in hac Academia exercet imperium? quis quem? ut
verbis utar tyranni Russici demortui. quam quaestionem
esse perobscuram, potestatis apud nos rationes esse
involutissimas, cum multi querantur, tum gaudent quidam,
haud minus quidem hi fortasse prudentes. imperi enim unum
genus est legitimum, quale fere admiramur in egregiis
Procuratoribus, in insignissimo Vicecancellario
veneramur; qui magistratum obtinent, trabeati prodeunt, a
lictoribus deducuntur, in sella sedent curuli. quam
pompam praetervectam, paparatiorum fulguribus
illuminatam, haec quam produco in statione parum
conspicua collocata observabat, quippe quae sapientiae
Epicureae memor latere maluerit quam animadverti. sed
prudentiores hoc saltem non fallebat, magistratus istos
apparatu fascibusque insignes non nisi brevissimum
temporis spatium his lautitiis, hoc populi favore usos
refulgere: alios esse illos longeque diversos qui arcana
nostra diu scrutati intimorumque consiliorum participes
facti auctoritatem idcirco firmiorem possiderent quod
neque iactarent neque ostentarent. hi sunt sine quorum
dedita opera constantique fide res publica nostra stare
non posset; inter quos eminet haec quae octo ex ordine
Vicecancellariis ab epistulis erat. o rem incredibilem
quot epistulas conscripserit, quot legerit, quaeritis:
citius possem harenas pulveremque numerare. quin etiam si
possem, tam immensa epistularum moles inter huius labores
haudquaquam primum obtinet locum. quid, quod virorum
vehementer occupatorum negotia regebat, ostia servabat,
otium tuebatur? quid, quod pompas caerimoniasque nostras
administrabat? quod quanti sit intelligimus omnes qui in
ipso Palatio praetoriarum cohortium praefectum audivimus
hanc anxia voce invocantem ad magnificas octo academiarum
pompas simul gubernandas. ut verbo uno dicam quod
sentimus omnes, Academiae dignitatem ita defendebat ut
homines extranei admirarentur, nos homines academici
gauderemus. sed nescio an hac in re praecipue laudanda
sit: Vicecancellarios suos, viros non numquam frenis
magis quam calcaribus regendos, qui res suo Marte
conficere volebant, leni quadam admonitione, qua erat
auctoritate, ad solitum morem institutumque revocabat.
hominum iudex est aequissima atque eadem subtilissima,
quae quid de quoque sentiat verbis paucissimis exprimit;
silentio vero nemo est qui eloquentius abutitur.

Praesento feminam optime de Universitate meritam Annam
Smallwood, Excellentissimo Ordini Imperi Britannici
adscriptam, quae toties hominum honorandorum agmen
instruxit compulit adornavit, ut ipsa admittatur ad
gradum Magistri in Artibus honoris causa.

Paraphrase

Nowadays we often find the question asked: Where does
power lie in the University? In the harsh words of the
late V.I. Lenin, "Who whom?" That this question
is so hard to answer and the power structure of Oxford so
complex is a matter of complaint to some, to
others—perhaps no less wise—of satisfaction. Of
power there are more kinds than one. One kind is
represented by the officers of the University: we admire
it in the Proctors, revere it in the Vice-Chancellor.
They hold office, wear robes, are escorted by lictors,
sit in chairs of state. As their procession would march
past, illuminated by the lightning flashes of the
paparazzi, the figure of Miss Smallwood was to be made
out standing in an inconspicuous position, an
illustration of the wisdom of Epicurus: the unobserved
life is best. Discerning onlookers, however, did not fail
to reflect that the personnel of this splendid parade
would enjoy the limelight for a short time only, and that
there were people of a very different sort, familiar with
our secrets over many years and privy to all our plans,
whose influence was all the greater for being
unobtrusive. These are the people on whose loyalty and
hard work all our institutions depend; and pre-eminent
among them is Miss Smallwood, who served (it is hard to
believe) as Secretary to no fewer than eight successive
Vice-Chancellors. If you were to ask how many letters she
wrote in that time, and how many she read, I should find
it as easy to count the sand of the sea or the dust of
the earth. Yet even if it were to be possible to count
it, that vast mass of correspondence was only a fraction
of her work. She managed the diary of those fiercely busy
men, controlled access to them, defended their scanty
leisure. She organised the University's ceremonies and
processions. Some of us got a glimpse of what that meant
last summer at Buckingham Palace, when the voice of the
Colonel in charge of the arrangements for eight
Universities to confer honorary degrees on President
Mandela was heard calling for Miss Smallwood to organise
the eight processions. What we feel can be put very
briefly: she upheld the dignity of the University in a
way that was respected by outsiders, and of which we
insiders could feel proud. Not least of her achievements,
I fancy, was to restrain some of her Vice-Chancellors,
forceful and decisive men, guiding them back, gently but
firmly, towards the straight and narrow path of our
traditional ways. She is a shrewd judge of people, who
conveys her views with few words; and her silences can be
of matchless eloquence.

I present Miss Anne Smallwood, MBE, a great servant of
the University, who has organised so many groups of
honorands for honorary degrees, for admission in her turn
to the honorary degree of Master of Arts.

REVIEW OF THEOLOGY

Under the University's procedures for the regular review
of faculties and departments the General Board has set up
a committee, under the chairmanship of Dr R.C. Ostle, to
review the Faculty of Theology. The terms of reference of
the review are as follows:

(a) to consider the provision and quality of
teaching, the future development of teaching and the
quality of research in the faculty, and the balance
between teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels on
the one hand and research on the other, having regard to
international standards of excellence;

(b) to consider the organisational and
management structures and facilities in the faculty,
including such matters as academic staff planning and
recruitment; accommodation and space; the facilities of
the Theology Faculty Library, its location in the Faculty
Centre, and its relationship with the Bodleian Library;
the relationship of the faculty with other faculties in
related subject areas; the academic staffing profile
following the loss of the chaplain-CUF posts;

(c) to make recommendations, bearing in mind
that if funding is required to implement them the likely
measure of available resources.

Members of the University who wish to contribute to
the review are asked to forward their submissions by
Friday, 5 December, in writing, to Dr R.C. Ostle, St
John's College.

CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a
flysheet circulated with the Gazette
(a) on matters before Congregation, or
Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of
Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of general
interest to the University, subject to the following
general conditions:

(i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the
opinion of the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors might be
defamatory or otherwise illegal;

(ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the
University and its employees, without prior consultation
with the signatories, to publish an apology in respect of
any statement in a flysheet which is complained of as
defamatory or otherwise illegal (whether or not the
statement can be shown to be true);

(iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally
indemnify the University and its employees against any
costs or damages payable in respect of their flysheet
and, unless a Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on
by the signatories and the University) shall advise
within four months of the making of any claim in respect
of a flysheet that any proceedings could be contested
with the probability of success, such damages shall
include any sum paid by the University in settlement of
any claim arising out of the flysheet;

(iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only
(though text may appear on both sides of the leaf); the
text shall include the name and college or department of
each of the signatories;

(v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be
delivered to the Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday
of the week in which circulation is desired; it shall be
accompanied by an indemnity in accordance with condition
(iii) above drawn up on a form obtainable from the
Registrar and signed by each of the signatories of the
flysheet; the Registrar shall be informed at the same
time which of the signatories is to be notified whether
the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors have authorised
circulation;

(vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production
by the University Press of copies of a flysheet the
circulation of which has been duly authorised.

Though every effort will be made to circulate on
the day desired flysheets so received, it must be
understood that this cannot be guaranteed.

(a) Matters before Congregation or
Convocation

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal
agendum for Congregation, or for Convocation in regard to
the election of the Professor of Poetry, or the subject
of a report published in the Gazette, the
production costs will be met from university funds.

(b) Matters of general interest to the
University

If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal
agendum for Congregation or the subject of a report
published in the Gazette, the
Vice-Chancellor will decide whether it is of sufficient
general interest to warrant circulation with the
Gazette; the production costs for such a
flysheet will be the responsibility of the signatories.

Oxford University Student Union

The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford
University Student Union may have flysheets circulated
with the Gazette under the arrangements and
subject to the conditions set out above, provided that:

(1) the number of names to be included on the
flysheet under condition (iv) shall be not less than a
majority of the total number of members of the Executive
or the Graduate Committee of OUSU, as the case may be,
and each of the persons named shall sign the indemnity
required under condition (v);

(2) the maximum number of flysheets to be
circulated as of right, whether on matters before
Congregation (to be paid for by the University) or on
matters of general interest to the University (to be paid
for by OUSU and to be subject to the Vice-Chancellor's
decision as prescribed under (b) above) shall be
three per term for each of these bodies, save that the
Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further
flysheets.

Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the
Graduate Committee of OUSU may also support flysheets
signed by not less than ten members of Congregation.

EXAMINATION SCHOOLS


Accommodation for Lectures

Hilary Term 1998

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 1998 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.
