REFLECTIONS ON BUYING A PAINTING "CHILDREN AND PIGEONS" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

REFLECTIONS ON BUYING A PAINTING —'CHILDREN AND PIGEONS' Elaisie Haxton. Earlier this year I purchased one of her paintings. My co-editor has invited me to write an article on the artist and her work. This I cannot do. If you expect to learn the arid facts associated with the artist and her work, if you want her 'classified', if you want her development traced, if you seek an an alysis of her technique, all so that you can speak glibly about her work at the Social functions you attend, then look elsewhere for yo,;r superficial contact with her. This is no more taan an account of some my own feelings on art, which are diametrically opposed to this same matter-of-fact approach, and my vital personal contact with one of Miss Haxton's works. Criticism of Art must be subject ive. We stand before a picture and there is a spontaneous feeling about it. Then in answer to the eternal 'why', we fall back on rationaliza tion to explain our feelings. D. H. Lawrence once remarked that 'ours is a ...

EDITORIAL LOOKING BACKWARDS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

EDITORIAL LOOKING BACKWARDS The academic year having finished, most of us are lost in a multitude of books and intense speculation about the approach ing examinations. But the exams will pass. Then the long vacation and after that a brave, new year. For the College this year has been one of tremendous im portance. Of course coming-of-age is a landmark, but for our College, has been more than a chronological year. i As far as student life is concerned, we must weigh the obvious disadvantages to be overcome, with the year 's achieve ments. The great majority of students are part-time. Encumbered by the labours of the day and the academic pursuits of the night, little time is permissible for relaxation.. Unlike most universities, 'student apathy' in Canberra has some justifica tion. Yet the year's achievements indicate that justification has not been an excuse for inertia. One in ten students con tributed to Woroni; one in six participated in the Revue; Prometheus has just been publish...

TIME AND THE TIDELESS STREAM—A STUDY OF JUDITH WRIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

TIME AND THE TIDELESS STREAM -A STUDY OF JUDITH WRIGHT by T. Inglis Moore Poetry and philosophy, as a rule, make uneasy bedfellows. It is an event when they mate harmoniously. The work of Judith Wright is such an event and none the less so because it happens to have occurred in Australia. It will probably be accepted, by the time the Commonwealth has moved on from jubilee to centenary, as one of the most important events in Australia during our last decade. At first sight Judith 'Wright seems to be mainly a pure singer, so lucid that he who runs may read with delight. Yet, looking deeper, we see that generally her purpose is not only to sing — which she has always done effortlessly — but also to fuse the abstract-idea with the concrete image. If poems like ' ' The Moving Image' link her with such a philosophical poet as FitzGerald, other pieces, like 'Winter Kestrel' and ' ' The Maker, ' ' immediately suggest Mary Gilmore by a lyrical simplicity as elear as a whistle. All three poet...

In the China Shop. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

In the ; ] China Shop . . . : j The cover of the 1949 edition of the Melbourne Herald's Yearbook was bright red. This year's cover is y Royal Blue! * ' I It doesn't pay to have bright ideas , in Canberra. One of the lecturers in the married division occupies a single room in Lawley, his wife is elsewhere. The room is sufficiently large to house two, so the lecturer decided to take the matter up with the Department of the Interior. The aged one behind the desk agreed that the suggestion had some merit: 'Hadn't thought of that before, but I am afraid that it is a matter for ministerial approval. If you should receive approval (which is very un likely), the room will then be no longer a single room, and it will have to be vacated and given to the per sons who head the double accommo dation list.' ★ If you have been looking for some thing to ride lately, contact the War den of Gungahlin .

Miss Crichton replies. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

?S Miss Crichton replies ... Sirs. — I take it that Medical Dick and Medical Davey , like my self did not take down a shorthand account of what Lord Russell said, so that while I endeavoured to re produce his line of thought as ex actly as I could, it is possible, I concede, that some errors may have crept in. However, that does not affect the main point I raised against Rus sell's statements on China. I was objecting strongly to a method of argument which refers to 'scep- ticism' and 'individualism' as being ' inherent in the Chinese character. ' ' While in drawing room talk it might be fashionable, and even permissible, to talk in these vague generalisations, we surely require that the academician should be more exact. Secondly, 1 was suggesting that a distinction between Communism and Russian Imperialism must take some account of the fact that Com munism as a political system might exist to-day only in theory . The imperialistic trends of Communism in this decade certainly seemed...

AT THE CINEMA ITALIAN CLASSIC "Bicycle Thieves" Directed by Vittorio de Sica and featuring Lamberto Maggiorani and Enzo Staiola. Currently showing in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

AT THE CINEMA ITALIAN CLASSIC 'Bicycle Thieves 99 Directed by Vittorio de Sica and featuring Lamberto Mag giorani and Enzo Staiola. Cur rently showing in Sydney. For the Italian film director, Vittorio de Sica, a bicycle be comes a vehicle in more than one sense. Around this simple object de Sica weaves a tale of a father and his child more powerful than Sorel and Son and more human than the film presentation of Ed ward, My Son. The story is remarkably slender. An unemployed man is offered a position if he can provide himself with a bicycle. His wife pawns the household sheets to obtain suf ficient money to redeem the old bicycle and her husband then sets off on his rounds as a bill-poster. The cycle is stolen and the remain ing three quarters of the film is concerned with the search of the father and son for the bicycle. The title is perhaps a little mis leading in that it diverts, for a time, the attention of the non Italian speaking audience from the real intention of the film. A...

THE SOUND AND THE FURY THE ANT AND THE ELEPHANT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

THE SOUND AND THE FURY . . . THE ANT AND THE ELEPHANT Sirs. — Miss Crichton 's criticism of Bertrand Russell's lecture, Fer ment in Asia, and her attack on the Institute of International Affairs for sponsoring his visit raised many questions. One is grateful for any intransigent questioning of the eminent and respectable ; but, as we hardly recognised what Lord Russell had said in Miss Crichton 's account of it, we offer our recollec tions — for correction if necessary. 1. Lord Russell did not say that he believed that 'the scepticism and individualism inherent in the Chinese character will . . . make Chinese Communism a form of Tit oism ; He referred to Chinese scepticism and individualism only after he had pointed out that Chin ese Communism had in a large measure developed independently of Russia, and had given reasons why the interests of China and Russia are likely to diverge. 2. To distinguish between ' Com- munism' and 'Russian Imperial ism' does not commit anyone to 'the the...

CRICKET UNIVERSITY IN SUB-DISTRICT SUCCESSFUL IN OPENING GAME [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

CRICKET UNIVERSITY IN SUM-DISTRICT SUCCESSFUL IN OPENING GAME This year the College Cricket Club has been forced to play in the Sub-District competition because of the A.C.T.

AUSTRALIAN ATTEMPT "Bitter Springs" Directed by Ralph Smart and featuring Chips Rafferty and Tommy Trinder. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

AUSTRALIAN ATTEMPT w Bitter Springs 99 Directed by Ralph Smart and featuring Chips Rafferty and Tommy Trinder. This film does nothing to justi fy the high hopes of Australian film patriots raised by Ealing's first Australian production of 'The Overlanders.' It is both pretentious and symp tomatic of the growing pains of the Australian film. The 'Over- landers,' authentic and real, and 'Bush Christmas,' (also made by Ralph Smart) with its utter sim plicity, were polished films. But we can't, leave it at that! Sim plicity is all very well but haven't we something more to offer? And so along comes 'Eureka Stockade' playing with political philosophy and now 'Bitter Springs' raising the racial question. If these im portant isues are to be raised then one feels that they should be earn estly treated. The pioneer family on reaching their new land, find it occupied by a tribe of aborigines, who, natural ly enough do not understand that they can no longer live on the land that they have know...

LATEST PROFESSORIAL ACQUISITION H. W. Arndt for Economics Chair [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950

LATEST PROFESSORIAL ACQUISITION 0. W. Arndt for Economics Chair The decision of the College Council to appoint Mr. H. W. Arndt to the Chair of Economics, deserves the highest commendation. In making, what may be considered a controversial appointment, the Council has shown that unlike the Adelaide authorities when faced with a similar appointment, it has not allowed political predjudice to override academic qualifications. Professor Heinz Wolfgang Arndt comes to us from the University of Sydney. The salient features of liis academic career are : Studied at Oxford, where he shared digs with Professor Clark, gained first class ? ? ? ? honours in Modern Greats (Poli tics) 19-36, Bachelor of Letters, 1938, awarded the Leverhulme Re search Studentship at the London School of Economics in the same year. In 1941, Professor Arndt became research assistant to the R.I.I.A., and during this period produced the widely read ' Econ omic Lessons of the Nineteen Thir ties. ' ' From 1943 to 1946 he ...

FERNANDEZ AT THE FILMS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

FERNANDEZ AT THE FILMS STATE SECRET is an unpre tentious and delightful film in the best G-illiatt and Launder tradi tion. The cutting and editing is handled with the maximum of economy, the action is fast, the tension is never allowed to get out of control, and it is maintained almost throughout with a good vein of humour. In its treatment of a political subject it never stoops to preaehiness or naivety, it just reports and as a result acquires a much wider emotional import. The plot is very convinc ing, and while everything ends ' ' happily ever after, ' ' this is done with a human touch that belies the charge of Deus ex Machina. The locale is Vosnia, an imagin ary totalitarian state, in Eastern Europe. However resemblances are not accidental.' The story centres around the illness and death of General Nevers, the Prime Minis ter and Dictator. A general election is pending, Nevers is the only candidate, and it is expected that the people will give a planned 'spontaneous' demonstrat...

PATHOS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

PATHOS Sirs. — Last year's Woroni, while a great improvement on Students' Notes, showed a lamentable ten dency to favour Giingahlin Students^ ' rather than act as a College paper. It was with regret that. I saw this this year's editors were External Affairs Cadets from the Hall and implore you, sirs, to pay some attention to the unfor tunates who study in the evening. —Yours faithfully, N\ P.

HOW TO MAKE ENEMIES AND IMPRESS PEOPLE Lettermanship [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

HOW TO MAKE ENEMIES [?] I should like, through your columns, to put forward a few suggestions as to the technique of letter writing which may be of assistance in making less unequal the struggles with the truth of future correspondents. I shall confine my remarks 1 largely to the Defensive Letter, I as most people are driven into I print by a desire to defend against i attack, either real or imaginary, I some cherished ideal, or phychotic | symbol (on which subject Flins I . berg is interesting). These notes I may also give food for thought to I writers of the aggressive letter as I the defensive opening (see Janic), | if skilfully used, can disarm in I advance all but the most exper { ienced letterman. I A nos moutons then.. One of the I main aims of defence ploys is to | obtain Bolster (to use a letterman | terih). Always seek to back up I your own view with a like opinion I from other sources. How like I Machiavelli to say, 'Authority | comes before Verity.7' And, while I I shoul...

HOCKEY SEASON OPENS WELL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

HOCKEY SEASON OPENS WELL On April 14th University A I team defeated Sydney University I First in an. exciting and hard I fought tussle, in which Dunn and I Newman distinguished themselves. Final scores were 2-0. On April 21st a slight set-back occurred, the A-graders being downed by Old Canberrans five goals to one. The defeat did not detract from the outstanding play of Dunn, Starkey and Newmani. Bgraders also lost to Old Can berrans ; the closeness of the scores, 2-0, reflects the play of Walsh, Forner and Killen. With more practice this team will gain the co-ordination necessary to make sure of winning its matches. In the B grade No. 2 match against B.M.C. the College team did well to hold Duntroon to a 2-2 draw. McBurney, Holgate, Hill and Pick ering were outstanding.

AND FURY BLOC VOTES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

AND FURY BLOC VOTES Sir. — The annual general meet ing of the S.R.C. was, I feel, a disgrace to the student movement in the College. The attendance was not even a tenth of the total number of students attending the College, whilst over half of those who did manage to attend were from ' GuiLgahlin. ' As naturally would be expected from such an attendance, the Gungahlinites formed a bloc, thus managing to vote themselves into the four key positions on the Council. Whilst these members are undoubtedly capable of carrying out the full duties of their respective offices, it seems a pity that this small section of the total number of students should have a controlling influence over matters affecting all students. Incidentally, I may point out that five of the nine members on the Council are associated with the Dept. of External Affairs. The attitude of the majority of students seems to be that they ' haven't time' or 'can't be bothered' with the student move ment. On the contrary, they a...

SOUND... TELEPHONES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

SOUND . . . TELEPHONES Dear Sir. — The students of other universities have telephones for their use on the premises. 'Why is the Canberra University College unique in the inconvenience of be ing without one? Is it because we are mostly part-time students? Is it because we can walk 100 yards to the post office to find a queue or a phone that is out of order? Not only may it be vitally necessary to ring out, but an urgent message may arrive for a student and the office will not take it. Most students demand very little from their annual subscription (just increased by 50 per cent.) so let us demand just one thing — a telephone to be installed in the Junior Common Room, similar to that in the Senior Common Room. Let us have something for our hard earned cash. — Yours faith fully, Barbara Moir. Arts III.

However, this style of haircut can only be recommended as suitable for very masculine men of good physique. Turramurra. FRESH AIR. ('S.M.H.' 2/5/51).
