Letters TO THE EDITOR REPLY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
I Letters I TO THE EDITOR - REPLY i Dear Sir, In reply to 'Martyr's' letter of 1 /6/60, I would like to state my opinion on the attempted j legislation to ban child marri- ,j ages. Although the Menzies Gov- /' ernment could hardly be called the champion of personal anxieties gnd problems. I feel it has not reached that Social istic state where the offspring of the present nation are re garded as political tools; their sole claim to existence being their benefit, actual or potent ial, to the State. Here we have passed through the state of altruistic satisfaction into mass-production machines so well described in 'Brave New f World'. Can we no longer rear l offsprings for the pleasure we | can get by sharing love, or are * we solely concerned with sup plying cogs for the State's fly wheel? Must we be pushed into an early marriage by the State to keep us in submission, and increase the Govern ment's power, for the produc tion of political putty? Must j our sole reason for marriage be |...
WORLD STUDENT NEWS UNITED STATES "BOUGHT" DEGREES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
! WORLD I I STUDENT | NEWS 1 1 JNSTED STATES 'BOUGHT' DEGREES A staff reporter of the 'New York World-Telegram and Sun', Alex Benson, has re vealed in a series of articles published in the paper, the existence of ghost-writing agencies which, for a fee, wrote terms papers and theses for college students and professors. Benson said the students pay up to J,UUU dollars to agencies for writing doctorate theses, smaller amounts for master's degrees and from 50 to 350 dollars for ghost-writen term papers. Posing as a ghost-writer him self, Benson said he was paid . 40 dollars to substitute for a ; student at a final examination j at Columbia Teachers' College. He also revealed that a college professor at a South-western University who paid 1,250 dollars for the rewriting of his ! doctoral thesis, later sent a j thank-you note to the agency ' and said he had received his doctor's degree on schedule.

RUGBY UNION Firsts Unlucky to Lose [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
I I Firsts Unlucky to Lose sy ' mvr I Since the last issue only three more rounds have j been played and the performances on the whole aren't ! very encouraging. The First XV are running approxim ately fifth in the Dent Cup, the Second XV are close seconds in the Spence Cup, while the Under 18 team maintains the position of outright leaders in their division. , The Firsts have been playing well in recent weeks but have been unlucky to meet strong teams. It is obvious to anyone who has been observing this team recently that they might , easily be much higher in the points table than they are at present. Undoubtedly the dis appointing feature of the team is the backline. After every match the backs have been changed around and in some | cases dropped. But this has ! achieved no result, as they are possibly as uncertain as before. The position of full-back is ' causing much concern and to my mind University have not had a player of any calibre in this position all the season. Murray is...
W.U.S. CONFERENCE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
W.U.S. CONFERENCE Report on the 'World University Service' Conference held in Melbourne , during the May vacation. j The commonest argument | against our concerning our- 1 selves in the affairs of other nations is that everyone is bet- ; ter off if they concentrate on | their own affairs and leave i others to look after theirs, and | from this it follows that the | only reason we could have for j such an interest must be benevolence or political in terest. However, this is not true of the world we are living in. Advances made in communic ations mean that countries are no longer isolated but are interdependent units of what can be called an international society., within which whatever one member does affects in some way the^ other members. Just as, in the past, it has bepn the ideal for those members of a society who are better off o give to those members who are worse off, this same ideal now must be applied in an inter national society. This, then, is the justification for interna...
MENS' BASKETBALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
MENS' BASKETBALL At last we have really got under way in the winter competition, . not having had to forfeit a game through absence of players for the last three weeks. Results have been mixed, with some games being won and some being lost. One fact emerges — if only all our players in each grade would condescend to turn up to games, we could take out both the A Reserve and C Grade championships! Apart from this setback, our big fault lies in the fact that there are too many individual ists in the teams — this is gradually being ironed out — it has to be if we are to play as well as we can. Supporters? You readers — what about some support at a game now and then? To- date, our follow ing has averaged three or four and they have a hard job try ing to out-voice the score or more supporters the opposing team invariably attracts. We can promise you some good fast basketball if only you come and yell for us. What about it?
GENERAL MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
GENEKAL MEETING Student apathy was clearly manifested by the poor attend ance at the Special General Meeting held on Monday night. This meeting was of major importance in the history of Canberra undergraduates. Two major issues were at stake. The name of the new A.N.U., Students' Association, the con stitution of this body, and the policy of a scholarship for the editor of 'WORONI' were under discussion. AH these: matters were of extreme gravity. And yet it was 8.30 before sufficient students (30) to form a quorum had U111VCU* | New Association Those students who were present renamed the new Students' Association, which will come into being in September, the Australian National University Students' Association. This name was agreed to unanimously. Following this (he new constitution was proposed. A great deal of discussion followed the raising of the issue, 'Should research students be allowed membership of the Association.' The meeting decided that (hey should. 'Woroni' Scholarship...

COME SKI WITH ME? SKIING GAINS POPULARITY i j Skiing seems to be on the up and up in the College this year.

WOMENS' HOCKEY Reversal of Form [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
[?] [?] Apparently the splendid start to the season was y. not a reliable indicator. II All scheduled matches have not ben played, because the I Acton ground is flooded in wet weather, and some players have not been available for the matches that were played. At present, the first team has still had only one win out of four matches, and has drawn another. The second team is doing a little beter, having won two, and drawn one, of their five matches. Could tthere be any correl- i ation between these results and ; the poor attendances at prac tices? If excuses are to be made, first-term vacation could be blamed to a certain extent, for j quite a few players went away. But the main cause of the lapse is lack of practice. There are two practices a week, so there is no reason for this. For further details of the Thursday lunch-time practice, see Mary Eccles. The Sunday practice, which everyone should attend, is at 9.30 a.m. at Acton. Practice (fees There is no excuse for non- |) attendanc...
SPORT WHAT PRICE SPORT? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 7 July 1960
[?] WHIT PRICE SPORT? Nearly all the best examination results last year at the C.U.C. were obtained by non-sportsmen. This Fact prompted the writing of this article. It may be presumptuous to tilt at that monolith which is called sport. The dictum 'mens sana in corpore sano' has al- , ways maintained its essential ity in a well-rounded human life. But, and this is a big but, to what extent should we allow sport to rule existence especially at University? Two Types | Afler all, what is , sport? j There appear to be two distinct branches — sport undertaken For pleasure (hunting, shooting, fishing) and competitive sport. This last concerns us and is probably the more noxious form. It is fatuous to bandy around Anglo-Saxon terms such as sportsmanship — competitive sports exists to gratify the ego and possibly to hore up the in feriority complex — its essence lies in performing some phys ical feat better than another individual or group of people. Its service is to enable people I to ass...
C.U.C. MEN ...THE CAUSE OF FEMALE STUDENT APATHY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
C.U.C MEN ! ... THE CAUSE OF FEMALE STUDENT APATHY Undoubtedly, any female will agree with me that the principal factor contributing towards apathy at the C.U.C. is the sluggish collection of males which crawl round this place. Women usually embark on a university career because the 'How Not to be an Old Maid' Handbook assures them that at such an institution they arc bound to find 'excellent mal rimonial prospects.' As a re sult, they tend to participate in every form of student activity, primarily to get their claws into a man who combines in his person the much desired attributes of money, looks, brains and personality. Non-Existent .This immediately rules out every male at the C.U.C., as eve none of these qualities is virtually ' non-existent. Why, then, is there any conceivable reason to expect women to join in activities? When faced with the choice of mixing and mingling in Clubs and Socie ties with the unsigni (leant weaklings which form the solid core of C.U.C. males, and of...
COMMON ROOM CLEAN LARGER, MORE COSY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
COMMON ROOM CLEAN LARGER, MORE COSY Following representation by (he president of the S.R.C., the administration has agreed to spend a large sum of money on renovating the existing Common Room. The Common Room is to be extended into the present games room and a partition is to be put up around an area to be reserved as a place in which table tennis may be played. They all will be carpeted and adequately furnished. In addition to these improve ments, the administration has agreed to see that a service is provided to ensure that crock ery is not left lying around the Common Room. The Common Room will also be cleaned in the evening, this will mean that evening meeting will no longer have to be held in squalor.
CANBERRA UNIVERSITY HALL OF RESIDENCE HALF-FULL HALL RESIDENCE IN DEMAND [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
CANBERRA UNIVERSITY HALL OF RESIDENCE HALF-FULL HALL RESIDENCE IN DEMAND The administration has been receiving applications for the new Hall of Resi dence. Already there are enough applications to more than haTf fill the new building. However, with this stage having been reached the pro blem now arises as to who will be given priority. Most of the applications have been received from people who in tend to come into the Univer sity next year. The position of residents of Narellan and Len nox has nqt yet been decided. Generally it is felt that these people should be given prior ity over next year's freshers. But it will not be until a Warden has been appointed that the Administration will be able to decide this important issue.
W.U.S. INTERNATIONAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
W.U.S. INTERNATIONAL More than 100 participants from some 40 countries are ex pected to attend the 1960 in ternational W.U.S. General As sembly which will be held in Tutzing, ? Germany.

NEW ARTS BUILDING OCCUPIED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
NEW ARTS BUILDING OCCUPIED Since the last issue of 'Woroni' appeared the new Arts Building has been occupied. This great change in the College has been clearly no ticed by the quieter atmos phere around the old section. The Common Room has fewer people in 11 ana inere is more parking space ' outside. At the new building there is a severe shortage of parking space. During the recent wet weather the lack of parking was felt by everyone. Students have reacted to the new building in many ways. Everyone was disappointed that the building was not pro perly finished when we had to move in. The reception that was given the advent of the building was not as favourable as was ex pected. Some students were disappointed in the furniture in the lecture rooms. Nearly everyone that was interviewed said that they did not like the bare functional nature of the building. One student said that only mach inery was required to make the building into a factory. Another said, 'The austere atmosphere is en...
SKI CLUB SUCCESSFUL TRIP [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
SKI CLUB SUCCESSFUL TRIP The Ski Club held a second trip to Kosciusko on Sunday, July 1 7th, with a full bus load of 33 skiers. The trip was generally asknowledged by those prosent to be a great success despite the fact that it was snowing some of the time. Some insisted that the light snowfalls added to the atmosphere (I won't dis pute that). The trip, which was planned for Smiggins Holes, had to be terminated at the Hotel Kos ciusko due to the fact that we couldn't get the bus any further — and not from lack of trying. However, the ski-ing condi tions at the Hotel were quite good and a couple of slopes were found to be particularly good for beginners. It is pleas ing to note that many first timers showed great enthusi asm for this exciting sport, and all agreed that 'it wasn't as hard as they had expected.' CASUALTY There were no casualties ex cept Peter Simpson, who man aged to hurt his knee, but we hope not too seriously. The only other casualties were Brett Odgers and Tony Magi...
OPEN LETTER TO S.A.G. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
OPEN LETTER TO S.A.G. Dear S.A.G., As spokes-man for the Na tional Bush Week Committee, I must officially acknowledge the support which you have so voluntarily given us. Although my committee sin cerely appreciate this support, it feels that the gesture was radically opposed to the verv idea of S.A.G., viz. nonpar ticipation. Obviously you have realised this objection and have added a rider clause explaining that the Support will be in fact rather than in policy. My committee considered this a dodge, that is, to say the very least, naive. Active support, we feel, must presupport principles, ideals and convictions., (N.B.— We do not deny the possibility of S.A.G. members being convicted). Although we appreciated your active participation in 'BUSH WEEK,' we did not want to lay you open to a charge of heresy. Obviously, there are certain basic contra dictions in terms at the basis of your group, but once these are sorted out, our committee looks forward to a relationship that will brin...
