Birds and Things

Birds and Things

Strange as it may seem, no Biology students are speaking in this year's ornithological debate which will be held in the Memorial Theatre this Friday at 7.30 p.m.

The subject for debate, which is understood to be a sneak preview of the Biology III finals paper, concerns the mating instincts of a domestic English bird and is entitled "That One In The Dark Is Good For A Lark".

True to their fond regard for dull and boring topics the Law Faculty is providing all four speakers.

Affirming the motion are those latter day larks Gerard Curry and Hamish Hancock, while Richard Green and David Kember (who for some reason best known to themselves have been sneaking round the campus of late with lecherous leers) will be negating.

The atraction of four people speaking on a subject about which they have no knowledge whatsoever promises to be irresistible.
