APATHY ABOUNDING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

APATHY ABOUNDING i Once again it is the duty of 'Woroni' to deplore the 'do-nothings' in this institute for apathetic advancement. Many an article ha,s appeared in this paper, and many a heated discussion has taken place, in attempts to snap the students of C.U.C. out of their I disinterested state. They wil- j fully persist in taking no active j part whatsoever in student affairs and activities. The few U is left to twenty or thirty active full-timers and a dozen or so part-timers to run the student side of College life. At the most, eighty people are will ing to join in anything what soever. The typical excu.se of full timers is, 'I haven't got time' or (and more truthfully), 'I can't be bothered'. What rot! Every full-timer can spare an hour a week for some club or society. loacf r»o n rf n Jc I n write an article for 'Woroni'. 'But I can't think of anything to write' is the usual reply to a request for copy. If this is the case, the persons suffering so have no right to be at a ...

A.L.P. ALL RIGHT Savage Exchanges At Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

A, LP. i ALL RIGHT Savage Exchanges | At Meeting i The inaugural function of the A.L.P. Club saw room F.ll crammed to capacity. Most were members but many had come merely to hear Professor Arndt speak. Professor Arndt spoke en thusiastically of the need for a revitalised A.L.P. — of a middle policy of progress and consolidation. He recapitulated a great deal of the arguments which he had presented to the public in an article in the Syd new Morning Herald last year, 'Towards a new Left'. Following the lecture ques tions and discussion ensued. The body of the meeting was strongly right-wing in sym pathy but there was one milit ant socialist present. This en sured a rowdy meeting with violent argument and savage heckling. The future of this Club seems assured.

Our Universities PROBLEMS AND MISCONCEPTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

Our Universities . . PROBLEMS AND tfJSCOKCEPTSONS The prime misconception about Australian Universities is why they are there. They are not there to supply ever-increasing numbers of young people for posts where academic training is needed but to fit men for the world by the ptirsuit of knowledge. The factor of prime import ance is to instil knowledge. Once the vocational idea be comes pre-eminent the purpose j of university life is lost. Ad- . mittedly in the progressive highly material world of today great numbers of educated men especially in the science side arc needed. But the university must be looked on as an end in itself and not as the means to an end. I think it is basically due to the attitude of the student that in Australia the concept of a university educ- ; ation being other than voca tional is the exception and not the rule. This attitude exists in not only the student body but in the faculties which in turn have certain views and i ideas with regard to the stu dents...

BETWEEN LECTURES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

[?] Memo, from the State Egg Board which may apply to some of the boys around the College: 'Anyone with more than twelve chicks must register himself with the Board'. * * * | Past President of the Stu dents' Association, Colin Mac Kerras, has been having a run i of outs recently. He couldn't I even make the vice-presidency of the Newman Society. Doubt less Colin won't be deterred. * -je The usual convention of con servatism among lawyers seems to be taking a bit of a kick these days. Ten lawyers had a 'smoke-o' in the Common Room and used a nine-gallon keg to mark the occasion — some occasion.

ORIGEN THEOLOGIAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

ORIGEN THEOLOGIAN lit Christianity to-day there is much that is either blindly accepted or ignored, while the emphasis is on platitudes and quibbling over non-essentials and people f orget the time when controversies were raging over the most vital and basic concepts of Christian dogma. This was during the early centuries of the Christian era, when Christianity was a new philosophy, revealed in its entirety by God, but still needing the greatest minds to interpret its truths and realise their full significance. The problem that faced men at this time was to see how Christ's teachings fulfilled the truths already inspired in men — in the philosophy of the Greeks, and the Law of the Jews. This meant a reconcilia tion of the deity of Christ with monotheism and for mulation of the doctrine of the Trinity, first framed by the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. In these first centuries then, thinkers were trying to solve the problems of the universe, the origin of evil, the divinity of Christ, ...

LAW BORE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

LAW BORE While the more academic members of the College were attending the lecture on Dame Mary Gilmore in the hall, the law fraternity were busy amusing them selves in the Common Room. The standard of the 'trial' was such that I would be very surprised if any of the particip ants were to prove themselves uture Sir Garfield Barwicks. However, boys will be boys, and the entire 'court' seemed to be most amused by the theme of the trial. Greatest laughter came at the stage , where the issue hung upon whether or not the building was an 'outhouse' or a 'privy'. Depravity Several young girls in the public gallery betrayed their depravity by laughing heartily at evidence given in the determ ination of whether or not there was a pan and what it was used for. As in the courts of today the process of the law was very slow and one sinccrely hopes that British law is vastly differ ent to the brand displayed at (he annual 'mock trial'.

FUTURE UNION? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

FUTURE UNION?! By PETER RYAN The time has arrived for students of the College to win a new deal in respect of the provision of Common Room facilities and meeting rooms. The present provisions for j students are inadequate. With 1 the opening of the Arts Build ing and the fact that Science students are mainly absent from the College precincts and up at the A.N.U., the need for a I social meeting place which is centrally located, is emphasised. The days of the present Com mon Room are surely num bered. Drill Hall The Drill Hall is a distinct prospect for providing what we presently need. It is on j College land and negotiations ' for the College to take it over have been under way for a long time. I remember last year's correspondence with the College administration on the subject and this year the S.R.C. has been bedazzled by the prospect of getting the Drill Hall and accordingly written and spoken much about it to the College administration. As a matter of fact 'Paddy' Flynn was app...

MEALS NO MORE MEALS THIS WINTER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

MEALS NO MORE MEALS THIS WINTER For the benefit of all students, 'Woroni' would like to point out a few facts about the Buttery. The Buttery is now controlled by the National University House service. Mr. Scarth is the man in charge and he re cently examined the College situation. Running loss The Buttery is running at a loss — however, the Adminis tration is quite capable of catering for this loss. How ever, Mr. Scarth feels that the institution of further service in the form of an evening refresh ment service would involve additional loss. He is not pre pared to risk this. So it doesn't look as though we will be eat ing any evening meals this year. Incidentally — there is much yelling and threatening about failure to return crockery to the Buttery. Please co-operate, even if the. service isn't as good as when Mrs. Cater was at the helm. A deposit system may be imposed.

Debaters Win [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

Debaters Win j C.U.C. debating teams have now won the last two j debates of the Canberra Debating Society competition 1 in which they participated. I : The topic for the first vic torious debate 'That the value of the Olympic Games is over rated' was not one on which the C.U.C. team had very much information. This position was I apparently quite obvious to the , opposition (Young Catholic Workers) who were inclined to make flattening remarks such as '1 trained with Herb Elliott j so I know . ...' or 'I saw ; I the Olympic Games in Mel bourne and I can assure you that Fiery Speech However, despite these dis advantages the C.U.C. team, consisting of Keith Campbell, Pat Hughson and Heather Sutherland, was victorious. The adjudication especially praised the fiery speech of Miss Suther land who, with eloquent deter mination pointed out to the opponents that their argu ments showed a 'disgusting sense of values'. The audience, consisting of Miss Anne Kings ton and an unknown young man, ap...

SOCIAL LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

S®€5M LIFE Dear Sir, I am a young freshette. 1 live at Narellan — I have a complaint to make. C.U.C. is j not living up to its reputation. I came here assured of a good time. I had read in the Orient ation Handbook all about social functions and Common 1 Room parties. However, I cannot go to any social functions as no-one has plucked up the courage to ask me and I find dances are too 'clicky' and 'groupy' for me to go alone. I don't think that there has been one Common Room \ party (except after the revue) this year. I have been told that S.R.C. regulations have been responsible for this. I think the regulations should be abolished and more 'open' t parties where individuals can « attend unescorted be instituted. | Yours in frustration, 'NAIVE'. f i i Editor's Note: 'j 1 HEAR, HEAR — Wake up f S.R.C. — give 'Naive' and 1 many others like her a chance ? to get into the swing. It may help to cure student apathy. - Let's get the College effervesc ing before it dies. i

"BORSTAL BOY" A Review: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960

'BORSTAL BOY' A Review: To use his own inimitable expression, Brendan Behan is 'not as green as he is cabbage-looking'. Obviously he wrote 'Borstal Boy' to capitalise on the popularity of his plays and undoubtedly its long in clusion on the barred list will make it a best-seller in Australia. From a literary point of view the book demonstrates at once Behan's substantial dramatic ability. Much of the book's ' humour, for example, is based on a contrast between his 'thinks' and what he actually says to other people, as in his interview with the prison governor — ' 'I did sir,' said I, with my hands at the seams of my trousers, admitting my fault to this tired old consul, weary from his labours among the lesser breeds, administering the King's justice equally and fairly to wild Irish and turbulent .Pathan, teaching fair [ play to the wily Arab and a sense of sportsmanship to the ! smooth Confucian.'
