U.S. FRIEND OR FOE? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
U.S. FRIEND OR FOE? America is in the grip of election fever. As a result, the spotlight ? of the Western world has moved onto the 'leader' of the 'free' nations. At the same time there is a new wave of world ten sion. Following the LI 2 incident and the breakdown of the summit conference came the collapse of the disarma ment. talks. Subsequently we have seen political upheaval in japan and Korea and. the Cuban affair. Such a world, situation calls for immediate and unrelenting action to restore harmonious relations in all spheres of potential eruption. What is being done? Few nations are in a position to do anything, but if their is a genuine desire for peace, then surely one nation must show a willingness to make concessions. But no — the world's leaders prefer to vie under the aira of brinkmanship. Only Britain has shown any flexibility. On the way to the summit Mr. Macmillan acted as intermediary and mediator. He gained popularity at home in the same period. Russia has continued...

Bush Week [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Bush Week Dear Sir I would like to use your columns to express my grati tude to the organisers of 'BUSH WEEK.' In my opinion this week was an effective and original par ody on the poorly organised and ineffective W.U.S. week. I think that the amount of interest aroused was a credit to the publicity drive and the attendance at the 'Bush Ball' clearly manifested this fact. However, the behaviour of some at the party was unfor tunate. The S.R.C. should give greater protection to such functions from unsavoury oui side interference. But it was pleasing to see that for once bodies did not litter the couches. j Congratulations to 'BUSH | WEEK' and may we see more i of this sort of thing at the College. Yours in favour. 'D1GBY.'
Price of Sport The Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Price of Sport The Editor, I Dear Sir, I should like to make a few comments on the article in your last issue under the head ing 'What Price Sport?' The article starts with a claim that nearly all the best examination results at the College last year were obtained by nonsports men. Has any evidence been produced to support inis claim? Although it may be well for university students to avoid making a god of sport, it is a well known fact that many students have been able to achieve distinction both in sport and in scholarship. I am not concerned, how ever, to argue that people should aim at getting a 'blue' as well as first-class honours in their final examinations, but rather to suggest that the ord inary student will probably find that he can work more effectively if he mixes study with some sort of relaxation. The main argument in favour of sport at a university is that many people enjoy it, and are able to get useful relaxa tion from their work by tak ing part in it. Might I add ...

W.U.S. WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
W.U.S. WEEK For an entire week the Common Room was the focuse of a campaign to raise money for the World University Service. From the Common Room I each day, keen supporters went | out with a collection box un der one arm and a pile of pamphlets and pencils in the other hand. As a result hundreds of pen cils were sold, students becamc aware of an organisation of students which they had pre viously been unaware of. Each lunch-hour of the week saw students congregate in the Common Room to hear an address. Five addresses were given and each speaker had a keen and interested audience. Father Sherris (Dominican Fathers) began the series with an address entitled 'The Soli darity of Man.' On Tuesday Mr. R. Harry, of the Department of External Affairs, spoke about and showed a film on 'Refugees.' He was able to open the eyes of many who had previously been ignorant of the refugee problem. External Affairs Cadets from Commonwealth Countries gave revealing talks on their coun tries and of edu...
Ratting Recks Rag [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
Ratting Recks Rag The Rag's Committee attempted to prove that it was less moribund than the other members of this institution by pre senting its first rag. The rag was to have been a satire on the present Mcnzies, inflationary policies, despite the fact that nobody bothers to complain about them any more. Apparently the crux of this rag was for a student, cun ningly disguised as Menzies, to be driven through Civic in the Royal Tour fashion, 'Men- zies,' wearing his well known expression, as popularised by Dobell, was to nonchalantly throw bread crumbs to the proletariat who eagerly gather round the car. A notice was to be displayed, stating 'if you can't afford bread, then eat cake.' The author of the rag was not particularly proud of this statement, claiming that it lacked subtlety. When inter viewed, the author was busy sharpening a guillotine blade, Well-inflated balloons, as well as occasional workman in a wheelbarrow were to com plete the rag. However, this was not to be. To th...

WORLD REFUGEE YEAR STUDENT AID BANNED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
WORLD REFUGEE YEAR STUDENT AID BANNED Strong opposition from police and tramways auth orities has resulted in the banning of a proposed student procession in aid of World Refugee Year. It was at first proposed that the University make a contri bution towards refugee funds, but in view of the fact that the University is notoriously broke, it was decided that the best contribution we could make would be in the form of publicity. Consequently a meeting was arranged between student rep resentatives of the Melbourne City Council. The student rep resentatives were assured of permission, provided there would be no fund raising. The chairman of the Traffic and Parking Committee of. the Council was favourable to the idea. However, when a letter was sent by the Students' Represen tative ...Council ...to ...the ...City Council, asking for permission, a telephone call was received from the Town Clerk, that 'in view of strong opposition from the police and tramways,' per mission for the processi...
BETWEEN LECTURES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
££7 \ There is no doubt about it. The Bish Week Committeei did a mighty job in making their little frivolity coincide with Young Farmers' Convention. I don't envy why there weren't any hay seeds in the Common Room. Our hall of residence is ahead of schedule — so I am told. Now that it is taking r,hape one thing is becoming more and more apparent. The gen eral air of the buildings is that of a barracks. The four blocks of bedrooms surround a large mess hall — take away the bricks and substitute corru gated iron and we may as well be put in uniform. * * * There is no doubt about these Dominican Fathers. They have that Common Room job down to a fine art. Saw Sherris hold the fort for two hours and then his seat was taken over by McKenna. Very good teamwork. * * * . These days the Common Room can only be classed as depressing. Too many chairs — too many people — not enough room. Not only that, but crockery isn't being returned to the Buttery, ash trays aren't being emptied and there is ...
WORLD STUDENT NEWS PAKISTAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
WORLD STUDENT NEWS PAKISTAN I An 'inter-Islamic university will be established in Karachi to impart religious and other education and is expected to come into being by the middle of next year. The university will largely be based on the pattern of famous Al-Ahzar University of Cairo, and is aimed at promoting religious learning and furtherance of the Pan-Islamic Movement. The idea of an Islamic University is said to have the blessing of a number of Muslim countries. Students from all over the Muslim world will be admitted to the proposed university. An international competition to re cruit the teaching staff will be held in the near future. JAPAN The extremely left-wing stud ent association Zengakuren, which was the driving force behind most of the violent demonstrations and bloody clashes during the last months, has now formally split into three factions. The three groups are (1) the 'main stream,' anti-Soviet and Trot skyist Communists; (2) the 'anti— main stream,' closely linked ...
"The Churches in Australian Politics" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
'The Churches in Australian Politics ' The following is a I resume of a talk given in the College Common Room on Wednesday, the 27th July, by Profes sor L. C. Webb, of the Department of Political Science, A.N.U. Religious indentification has become an effect of importance in Australian life. If we want a healthy political community, then we must face the problem of diversity of religions: (1) By finding a way in which differences may be set tled. (2) By having a workable theory of relationship between Church and State, or, as in the case in Australia, Churches and State. The Roman Catholic Church has worked out such a theory, applicable to any situation. Church and State are two per fect societies, that is, each pos sesses within itself the means for realising its aims. The dif ference lies within the origin and source of authority for each. The Church was founded directly by God, and is gov erned by him. The State is of the order or natural law, hav ing arisen from man's power of r...
SPORT WOMEN'S HOCKEY REPORT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
SPOftt WOMEN'S HOCKEY REPORT The last two matches have shown an improve ment in the results of both teams. These results give both | teams a chance to be in the I finals — an opportunity that University has never had pre viously in Women's Hockey. Therefore, the most must be made of this opportunity. PRACTICE Practice becomes even more important if any hopes are to be held of continued success. Other teams are practising regularly and often, and the pressure will really be on now as the season nears its end. So remember, there is a practice at 9.30 a.m. every Sunday, rain or shine, at Ac ton, for all players without exception. The semi-finals for both grades are on August 26, which is in the middle of second term vacation. Please keep this date in mind when planning your holidays, as, with a bit of luck, both teams could be playing in them.
RUGBY UNION FIRSTS OUT OF RUNNING Grim! Gloomy! [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 3 August 1960
RUGBY UNION FIRSTS OUT OF RUNNING Grim! Gloomy! All hopes of the Senior team making a late rever sal of form have been finally crushed and shat tered. They have won only one match in the last six weeks. This was against lowly-rated Goulburu, when they scrapped home to a very close 9-8 win. In a few of the matches the firsts were unlucky to lose. In support of this statement we may peruse the results of the games against Easts, Norths, Ainslie. Against Ainslie the score was 6-6 up till a minute before full time when a last minute effort by Ainslie enabled them to score a converted try to defeat University by 11-6. On July 23rd Uni. travelled to Queanbeyan to play the Whites on their home ground. The firsts were well beaten by Queanbeyan, the score being 23-8. University never at any stage appeared likely to fight it out against a very strong side of New South Welshmen. RESERVES The Reserve grade side have been faring much better and maintain their position as sec ond on the competiti...

REVUE SUMMARY ACCOUNT INCOME [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
REVUE SUMMARY ACCOUNT INCOME I Gross Profit ? £97 15 9 Net loss ? 2 8 2 £100 3 11 The S.R.C. was very pleased with this year's Revue and were looking forward to it being a financial success. Un fortunately, as the above ac counts show it was a fiancial disgrace. The S.R.C. does not mind sustaining the loss of £2/8/2, but would have liked to have paid the producer (Leigh Day) a rair remunera tion for the tremendous amount of work he put into the Revue; and £50 was hardly sufficient. Note that the cost of the party, exclusive to the cast, exceeded this amount.

4 DAYS WITH SOCIALISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
4 DAYS WITH SOCIALISM The young budding Socialists of Australia gathered at Olinda (Melbourne) this August vacation for FOUR DAYS WITH SOCIALISM. Our Sydney University 'komrades,' under Bruce MacFarlane, expounded a Socialist economic perspective on the first day. Mechanism Bruce claimed that the Key nesian mechanism as a pres sure against the. Trade Cycle (by stimulating total invest ment and consumption in de pression and restraining them in boom period) should be rejected. The timing and hence the effectiveness of the mech anism through budgeting pol icy in Australia is rendered inefficient by the financial year ending just before our wool clip is known. Even if this were remedied, the mechanism remains inefficient because it works in aggregates and there fore ignores the differences in excess capacity in the con sumer goods industries and the capital goods industries. Sup pose there was little excess capacity in the consumer goods industries and much excess capacity in the capit...
Revised N.Z. Exchange Under Way [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
Revised N.Z. Exchange Under Way Plans for the New Zealand Student Vacation Exchange Scheme which N.U.A.U.S. or ganises jointly with (he New Zealand University Students' Association are running smoothly as a result of (he recent revised travel agreement between the two National Unions. The revised agreement was adopted by N.U.A.U.S. follow ing the visit earlier in year of President Bernie Moylan to attend the Easter Council Meeting of the New Zealand ers. The Exchange System, which has been administered in Aus tralia by the Union's Travel Department lor several years, allows students to travel by sea to New Zealand during their long vacation at a 10 per cent discount.

All participants in the Ex change are met by the host National Union on arrival provided their applications have been lodged before No ...
The Editor Says: THANK YOU! [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
The Editor Says: THANK YOU! An editorial would be quite out of keeping on this page. If the pages are scanned properly it will be seen that there are at least five editorials in disguise some where. So it only remains for us to give a little message to mark the end of C.U.C. students' newspaper. We have just completed twelve months of produc tion. 'Woroni' has had a year of uninterrupted printed publication. We think that we have reached an important milestone. 'Woroni' will continue to appear next year as the students' newspaper of the Australian National Univer sity. With more full-timers, the tenor of student activity should reflect more and more the full-time nature of a University. Public servants and graduates should gradually take on their proper role — evening students associated with but not attached to the student body. But all this is in the future. We say thank you to all those who have helped in the past. Those who have made suggestions to, criticised, supported, writte...
