Big Bertha Thing besides
Some people think that Big Bertha is less suitable for the
OUSA Astronomy Conf., than for OUSA Classical Particle Conf.
Have they heard the long name for CP Conf?
High Energy Particle Physics Rock Hard Science With a Fringe
They think that is a better place to put Big Bertha.
They must be besides themselves, which proves the thing.

Big Bertha Thing indomitable
(1938) about biography of Lord Grey of Falloden
Lord Grey of Falloden sprang from a Northumberland family of country squires,
who for generations had played a part in public affairs.
His own pleasures lay in the country, but his sense of duty drove him into politics.
He was happiest fishing for trout, and watching wild birds,
but once he was a member of parliament his abilities and character
won for him a prominence that gave him little time for such pursuits.
From 1905 to 1916 Lord Grey was Foreign Secretary.
It is strange that the man whose heart was never entirely in politics
should have risen to such a high office, should have held it so long,
and in such crucial years.
It is possible to consider Lord Grey's life as a failure.
His sense of duty prevented him from living the life he loved.
His efforts to preserve the peace of Europe suffered the defeat of August 1914,
that darkened the rest of his life.
He sacrificed his eyesight in his wartime service in the government.
When at last release came, and he returned to his birds and books,
he could no longer see them. Domestic griefs beset him.
Yet as our extract from his biography shows,
from this tragic material his serene and strong nature
won a greatness that is an inspiration and splendid example.(Two extracts follow)
He was equally cut off from books, of which as life advanced he had grown
scarcely less fond.
I classify the different parts of my body as being
of different ages, as thus:
99 Sense of smell
56 Sense of Hearing (My age)
45 Heart and lungs
It makes an unequal team to get along with.
