College Council Claims Its Pound Of Flesh [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
College Council Claims Its Pound Of Flesh Complaints have been received from some residents of Gungahlin about the College Council's attitude regarding the fees of the hall. In accordance with the rules of Gungahlin no refund of fees is made in the case of temporary absence during term. This was accepted by certain residents whose work required them to be in* Sydney for a fortnight immediately preceding the end of last term, but they regard the charge of 10/- a day for the few days spent ; J in Canberra during the vacation as niggardly, especially as ' j they have, in their terminal absence made such gratuitous contribu tions to the College funds, and during the days mentioned had many meals out. j The way to cut losses is by more efficient management and not j bleeding students. !

THE SOUND AND THE FURY CRITIC CRITICISED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
THE SOUND AND THE FURY CRITIC CRITICISED Dear Sir, — Although your notice of the Can berra Art Club's exhibition ('Student Notes,' May 10) was publicity, for which the President and Coiincil are . grateful, one wishes that the critic's glance had been less cursory and the approach less casual. Good art critics are rare; bad ones are numerous. Art criticism demands special knowledge and understanding, not to mention insight into many fields of artistic expression. May I remind your critic that the exhibition was mounted with diffi culty, because of the unsuitability of the building which presents anything but 'flattering surroundings' for works of art. Outside of Meldrum and Murch, the 'mixed bag,' as your critic described it, contained the work of dis tinguished artists in addition to some pleasing work by members of the Canberra Art Society. The. portrait of Meldrum's mother, representing a phase in his work, was purchased by the Felton Bequest for the National Gallery of Victoria,...
ABORIGINAL TITLE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
ABORIGINAL TITLE As announced in the last, issue of ' ' Student Notes' we bring out our first edition for the second term under a new name~~ 'Woroni.' We felt that something more inspiring than the unimaginative 'Student Notes'' was essential. Instead of following the lead of other University papers with their Latin and French names, we have chosen a word of aboriginal origin because' it is far more significant to us, particularly in the Capital City of Australia, than any word of foreign origin. . 'Woroni' means 'mouthpiece,' a ^fitting name for the journal, of a student body. It is our hope that the day is not far distant when 'Woroni' will be as well-known a name as 'Honi Soit,' ''Farrago,' 'Semper Floreat,' and ''On Dit' are to-day.
IT'S A REVIEW, FOLK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
IT'S A REVIEW, FOLK News that Doc. Todd has temporarily forsaken Byron, Shelley, Bacon and Co., and turned to the more important work of revue-producing, was met with great enthusiasm ? A short poll held by 'Woroni' brought forth these comments: — Pamela Puberty: — 'Divine . . . really divine .... will it be naughty like the one in Syd ney?' Comrade Joseph Darlin: — ''Bour- geoise . . . Trotskyite deviationist doctor . . . dialetical materialism - . , . bourgeoise revue. . . Bombs -in Albert Hall as well as Par liament House.' 'Professor Cunning Lark: — 'Jolly good . . . must wear the old school tie, Sam Brown belt, herring bone trousers. Wish Toddie would ask me to play the lead.

Conference of Student Editors [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
? # Conference of Student Editors In spite of Miss Crichton's forebodings ('Student Notes,' May 10) the recent conference of Editors, held in Melbourne during the May vacation, will not have a disastrous effect on student journals. . It was not the final manifestation of a student bureaucracy ? but rather a ; sincere. . and unostentatious gathering, providing an opportunity^ fp^'^e exchange of ideas and technical information. All University publications were represented except WORONI, our disaffiliation ^vith the N.U.A.U.S., under whose auspices the con ference was conducted, .preventing the attendance of an official dele gate. l The delegates discussed N.U. A. U.S. publicity, deciding that the student population could be most effectively and economically reached through existing journals. A resolution was endorsed that^Ken Tolhurst be approached and asked if he would syndicate a column of international student -news on the lines of the 'Universities Round the Globe,' published in '...
Topics of "Conservation" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
Topics of 'Conservation' I The Editors of Student Notes When taking up their work Have said that everyone must help And not a soul must shirk ; (Unfortunately, no jug of beer Is near me as I write — Perhaps that may explain the fact That my remarks are trite). We're asked to take our pens in hand And then express our views On all and any topics Our fancy light may choose; 'Religion, politics or sex' — A range both wide and free, And yet X sense the chilling touch Qf Canberra lethargy! The Public Servants that one sees A'drinking cups of tea, Surrounded by their red-taped files, At ten and then at three, Will they bestir those well-known brains And wield a pungent pen ? Or will they start to write something and then sink back again? I hope the optimistic Eds. Will have some good replies, - That contributions will roll in Of every shape and size; But Canberra is a funny place ^ And here, it seems to me, The only thing that is~~ 'conserved' Is mental energy! . -—J.M.

CHRISTIANITY AND FREEDOM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
CHRISTIANITY j AND FREEDOM - ' l At the S.C.M. meeting on June | 8tli Peter 'Bailey led a lively dis- - I cussion on Freedom. The negative 1 aspect of freedom, he stated, was 1 absence of restraint, this being the 1 conception of freetraders and those I in favour of private enterprise. An- I other aspect of definition of free- * 1 dom was freedom of choice, this J being a more positive aspect and | one applicable to Christian belief. I The Christian was free to choose J91 whether he should serve God or J not; this, Mr. Bailey explained, al- '^1 though an apparent paradox, tvas 9 resolved when one considered that S at all stages one's freedom of choice was limited by one 's en- -? Jig vironnment and circumstances. So, whilst the Christian should hold to JH such freedoms in the economic and 9S social realm, as freedom of per- M sonal expression, opinion, speech, ® association, to work and do what ||M one will with the products of one's — work, the latter being questionable -fix in mod...

FILM REVIEWS. HIGH SOCIETY AT 12 O'CLOCK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
FILM REVIEWS. HIGH SOCIETY AT 12 O'CLOCK Buttressed between a doyen of Canberra society and a local 'grande dame' your editors had the privilege of witnessing one of the social highlights of this mon otonous city. The occasion of the Australian premiere of a Hollywood film. — 'Twelve O'clock High'— called forth, the elite of Canberra — diplo- mats, politicians, and other lesser celebrities, hawking their finery before a barrage of photographers, newsreel-cameramen and reporters. For this was indeed a great occa sion, though to the cynical few, the ostentations display seemed ludi crously out of place at the screen ing of a film which merely adds to a long list of Hollywood medio crities. /. The word 'realism' has been .bandied about during the last few years in connection with, many American productions. Too often, a reasonably authentic story is con sidered sufficient justification for the use of the term, and doubtless many critics will call ''12 O'clock H^igh' a realistic film. B...
Repertory Desires Student Support [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
Repertory Desires Student Sypport Canberra Repertory Society con tinues to meet the difficulties of a diversified society with a poor transport service and the draw backs of restricted space with cour age, students interested in the theatre should look towards the Rep. rather than lament', the ab sence of a student dramatic societv and remain inactive. The par ticular need of the Repertory is talent, young actors and actresses, which the college could and should provide. At the end of the month the society will present Moliere's de lightful comedy 'Lecole Des Femmes' ('School For Wives,' Peasants) . There have been few productions of the play in this country and we are pleased that a play of the French classical tra dition is to be presented in Can berra. Looking back to the mag nificence of the Greek theatre in the days of Aeschylus, Euripides, and Aristophanes). Producer Adrian Berzell will stage the play in arena style. This return to the classical idea is be coming popular in Am...
OUTDOOR SPORTS Hockey Results: Saturday, 20th May—A Grade: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
OUTDOOR SPORTS Hockey Results: Saturday, 20th Mayrw A Grade : Old Canberrans defeated Uni versity 4-1. Early in the first half the University defence was un settled, enabling Old Canberrans to score three quick goals. For the remainder of the half, play was even Avith neither side being able to score. The second half saw Old Canberrans go further ahead. Joyce scored after good combina tion. University attacked persist ently and Newman finally scored. ~ Good defence by University was spoiled by lack of cohesion and dash in the forwards. The only remedy is training, and plenty of it.

COLUMBIA'S TAMMANY HALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
COLUMBIA'S TAMMANY HALL 'All the King's Men,' winner of three academy awards, is hailed as an exceptional film. Drawing on the life and death of Huey Long, it concerns the rise to power of Willie Stark, an American State Politician. The film has action (in cluding a murder, beatings, drunk en driving, the collapse of a fire escape under fleeing school chil dren and tumultuous political demonstrations), love, a star and a story. However, 'All the King's Men' would not be a good film, in spite of the Academy Awards unless the action, the love and the story were related in a significant unity. This is not done, the moral — that politi cal corruption is inexcusable even to secure reform and that dema gogy results in tyranny — fails to unify the whole. One shortcoming is that the film suggests certain themes without be ing sufficiently in earnest with them. The political conditions and the inner history of Willie Stark's personal corruption are not treated at all ; They are taken for gra...
PHALLUS IN WONDERLAND [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 June 1950
PHALLUS IN WONDERLAND Most of us cannot remember the deliberations of those who decided to add to the natural beauties of our countryside, the varying architectural forms and war disposals, that were to serve as tokens of remem brance of the First World War. Yet all, except the least observant, have viewed with mixed feelings the rusting mechanisms of war that even now adorn our parks, and the great monuments that serve only to exclude the utilisation of the land that they occupy. Perhaps in those now distant days the attitude adop ted was understandable. The proverb, — out of sight, out of mind lent a popular justification to the argu ment that to prevent a new war, it was imperative that the generations which followed would be con stantly reminded of the trials and tribulations of the generation that' preceded. As a consequence, we now observe Anzac Day, Armistice Day and so on. These annual days of remembrance serve a useful purpose as any school boy will admit, and fulfill to so...
