MEXICO: VIGOROUS YOUNG STUDENT PRESS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
MEXICO: VIGOROUS YOUNG 1 *JQV STUDENT PRESS S1 The Mexican National Student Press Association (ANPE)) was founded about' Three years ago. Student editors of the country created this organisation in order to make genuine, extensive exchange of opinions on all social, cultural and university problems'. ANPE, which is representative for the student press from all the university centres of the country, has in the opinion of the Mexican student editors four main objectives to fulfil, viz., to connect, to inform, to educate, and to serve. These four basic pillars! bear the entire weight of the work of the National Student Press Association, which has a membership at present of over 50' publications and runs two schools of journalism. It id expected that the member ship will increase further; various new applications for admission arei already at hand. In spite of difficult financial problems, A.N.P.E. has been able to publish a monthly , student information service, which passes on extens...
A.L.P. - MORE TALKS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
A.L.P. - MORE TALKS Despite the hopes of the cynics, the A.L.P. Club has continued to function in a most virile manner, v/ith speakers of high Australian standing addressing meetings. The latest meetings have fea tured addresses by Dr. John Burton on 'The Church and the A.L.P.' and Alan Barcan on 'What is the New Left?' Dr. Burton gave an outline on the manner the Church and the A.L.P. agreed on many principles with tension between the two arising mainly out of expediency. He stated that the Church in many ways contrib uted to the present world ten sion, as the Church was being governed more by expediency rather than by principle. The point was particularly conten tious to some members of the meeting, with a brisk discus sion ensuing. Alan Barcan, who has re cently completed a monograph entitled 'The Socialist Left in Australia, 1949f-59,' is con cerned with a movement known, as 'The,. New Left.' This movement, now gaining strength in Australia, is model led on the movement of the s...

LEGALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
LEGALITIES Criticism of the Mock Trial in the last issue of 'Woroni' were well justified. The main faults were lack of preparation on the part of counsel and witnesses, and a constant attempt to be humorous. Needless to say, after the first hour-hour or so, this latter resulted in sheer tedium of audience and judge alike. Future mock trials should be better prepared and no attempt should be made to force the humour. Scatology should be avoided. If these things cannot be done, it would be better to put the mock trial on the same basis as the moots conducted in other subjects and confine it to argument on a specific point or points of law. I am sure the judge, Mr, O'Donovan, would find this much more congenial than the other night's riot. One matter not mentioned in the 'Woroni' comment on the mock trial was the rowdi ness of a number of non-law members of the audience, whose behaviour was nearly as bad as that encountered ai general meetings of the S.A. The Editor of 'Woroni' be came...

Apathy [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Apathy Dear Sir, (Re your article Apathy Abounding 7/7/60). May I heartily endorse your remarks about student apathy. The larger this university be comes the more disinterested is the general student body in the social and club life at the College As president of C.U.D.S. 1 have been appalled and infuri ated by the general lack of interest and don't care attitude. 1 could not even raise a cast of TEN. As a result of this we have had to withdraw from the N.U.A.U.S. £)rama Festi val in Adelaide and are obliged to call on outside help to even stage the play here in Can berra. Yours in disgust, MALCOLM HARRISON.
TOM LEHRER SAYS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
TOM LEHRER SAYS According to the Sun day Press, Tom Lehrer had a few things to say about Australia when he arrived home. Lehrer intends to come back to Australia, so he must have been impressed ? — evidently he wants to teach mathematics here. He thinks Aussie women are sweet, but he doesn't like the way men and women segregate at parties in Australia (he can't say that about the C.U.C. ' party he witnessed). I But most of all he likes Australian beer 'cause he can get drunkest quickest on it. When one examines these re marks it is easily seen that this is an admission by Lehrer that Australia is better than America, that his songs get a better reception here. The rest is but excuses — so we'd better prepare to see that ghoul again. GOOD FOR YOU, TOM!
Personal [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Personal Dear Sir, I am a fresher. I live at Len- j nox. My plea is a personal one, but as the person concerned I' has not taken action I am * now making my plea public. When I arrived here I was ignorant of both student life and student politics. As a re sult I voted for the fresher candidate in the S.R.C. elec tions. With the fresher candidate duly elected I expected to see some active representation. But no — our representative has proved a dismal failure. No promises have been carried through and I believe that he I has played only a passive part J at S.R.C. meetings. Please, Mr. Maurer, do your duty — look after freshers' in terests and those of fresher- % etts, too. Yours in lethargy, 'HOAXED.'
S.R.C. ACTIVITY MONEY FOR EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
S.R.C. ACTIVITY MONEY FOR EDITOR The result of the campaign to reimburse the Editor of this paper has at last been realised. The S.R.C. have received a cheque from Mr. Shakespeare for £25 and have placed this money in the S.A. funds. Mr. Shakespeare had ex pressed his disfavour of the scholarship plan for the' Edi tor. However, with additional money the S.R.C. felt it pos sible to give the Editor an ex pense allowance. In addition to general ex penses (which are met by the Association) the Editor will be paid £3 to cover his personal expenses in the production of each issue. It is anticipated that the future productions of 'Wor- oni' will be speeded up.
A BUSH WEEK BANG 120 AT PARTY SHEARERS' DELIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
A BUSH WEEK BANG 120 AT PARTY SHEARERS' DELIGHT Following the intellectual W.U.S. Week the Common Room was the venue for the first annual Bush Week. Under the direction of the I committee a programme of activities was drawn up. But these were not all carried out. Inclement weather and in sufficient support were respons ible for the cigarette rolling competition, the ladies' nail drive and the walkabout being cancelled. However, the organised lec tures were a great success. But the committee found that the two doctors who addressed the students were bogus and that their honorary degrees had not been ratified. Dinkum On Monday Robert Recce asked sixty people 'Are You a Dinkum Aussie?' The national characteristics of Aus tralians were examined and commented upon. Recent pub lications intended to depict the Australian were slated and criticisms voiced. Reece ad mitted that he was not a Din kum Aussie but gave the im pression that he was trying to be one. The TUMBARUMBA TEE TOTALLER gave...
SUB-COMMITTEE COLLEGE STUDENT ON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
SUB-COMMITTEE COLLEGE STUDENT ON Canberra has led the way in democratic studentadministra tion relations. A student has been appointed to an admin istrative sub-committee.

MEN'S HOCKEY Disappointing [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
MEN'S HOCKEY Disappointing Despite the most valiant attempts, University have still to score a win in the 'A' grade hockey competition. This is not due to lack of effort, skill or perseverance, but because University has been lacking many essential qualities, some tangible, some intangible which go to make up a team. The team contains a lot of very good individuals. Peter Simpson, Vic Gleeson and Barry Smith-Roberts played in the A.C.T. Colts' team at the State Championships, while Graeme Arnold and Ken Rob inson were selected for the Challenge team. New acquisi tions, Jim Jorgenson and Ron Weir have added immeasur ably to the team. However, lack of co-ordination, a ten dency to lapse at the vvrong time and general inexperience have told against us. SYDNEY TRIP Our trip to Syney at Queen's Birthday week-end failed to bring back the S.C.A.D. (Syd ney, Canberra. Armidale and Duntroon) Shield, but was a great success in other direc tions. So many things occur red, most of them unmentio...
Mistaken [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Mistaken Dear Sir, (Re your remarks about me on page 4 of your last issue). I am not given to making such improbable statements in public and I thoroughly resent your printing it without my admittance of the facts con cerned. It is slanderous, sir! And the sooner you put a step to such goings on the better, sir! What would the taxation department think. You know damned well I couldn't afford the fare. Yours in passing, MALCOLM HARRISON.
LETTERS PERTINENT and IMPERTINENT Law Reply The Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Iletters PERTINENT and J IMPERTINENT Law Reply The Editor, Sir, Congratulations on the just slating of the Law Society in the last issue of your now high-quality r,ag, 'Woroni.' The Mock Trial was a mucking fiasco! After the boorish participants had oeen dragged out of the hotel, the 'trial' commenced, a half hour late in a beery atmosphere. Sir, I was shocked! Such ex cessive drinking amongst un dergrads illustrates the poor tenor of this place and espe cially the lowness of the Law Souse-iety. Drunkedness is uncondon able! Up with the Salvoes! Down with the Lawyers! —'WOWSER' Dear Sir, 'Your recent article, 'Law Bore' seems to have missed the point. As a lawyer I feel that you have abused the sac red majesty of the Law. However, for a long time I have been aware of a growing sense of irresponsibility amongst lawyers. This sense has been manifested by the in creased consumption of alco hol. ? The mock trial was a shock ing example of poor taste on the ...part ...of ...many ...lawye...
