Australian Universities Drama Festival in Adelaide [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
Australian Universities Drama Festival in Adelaide The Australian Universities Drama Festival was presented in Adelaide during the August vacation. The Festival was a great success dramatically — most of the plays were well written and none were badly played — but houses were poor, probably because of lack of publicity. A wide range of plays was presented, and the variety was one of the most enjoyable fea tures of the Festival. All were plaiyed admirably in spirit, and altogether they made an informative and balanced gamut of plays. Production was generally good; the main general criticism was of lack of make-up. ? Seminars for those who could make it were held each morning to discuss the plays, and these proved very illumin ating, although the discussion tended to be about the play rather than the players. Perhaps the best play of the Festival, and certainly the most popular, was Bertholdt Brecht's 'The Caucasion Chalk Circle.' This experimental narrative play is relaxed and poetic...

OBITUARY C.U. COLLEGE, ESQ. It is with regret that the passing of C.U.C. is notified. For some time the passing has been imminent and the event does not come as a surprise. But it will be difficult for many to reconcile themselves with the passing. To all those our sympathy and condolences . _ - ? . ? are exrenaea. C.U.C. was the youngest child of Melbourne University. Despite many dif ferences of opinion and misunderstandings as a result of lack of contact, C.U.C. re mained a loyal and diligent child. Not only this, but C.U.C. was also a successful child. As a training centre for public ser vants the College has fulfilled and is still fulfilling an important need. As a creche for the infants of public servants, children stall too young to leave home, the College has played an important role. As a centre for Teacher Trainees the College has enabled some reciprocity to take place between the A.C.T. and the N.S.W. Department of Education. Furthermore, the existence of C.U.C. saved the...

STUDENT NEWS Nicaragua Whereabouts of Student Leader Unknown [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
STUDENT . NEWS Nicaragua Whereabouts of Student Leader Unknown I he authorities; ot the Som oza dictatorship are desperately searching for Joaquin Solis, the President of the Federation de Estudiantes de Nicaragua because he recently formally denounced certain preparations being made in Nicaragua to organise an armed movement against .Cuba. Since then ? rioth i ng is '''known - concerning his ? whereabouts. F.E.U.H. (Feder acion de Estudiantes Universi tarios de Honduras) is making all efforts to find liis where: abouts and has sent a cable to Nicaragua demanding his safety.

Procrastination [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
Procrastination Despite the general tendency for Australia to be a conservative nation, there is usually a trend for jobs to be finished on time. But this does not always happen. Once again, we — the stud ents of the C.U.C. — are suffer ing as a result of procrastina tion. We are now a new Univer sity. We are the Australian National University, but still we suffer because our founders lack enough initiative to finish the job. But circumlocution gets no where, so why beat around the bush. The recent issues of the Drill Hall and Turner Oval have been half measures. Why? Insufficient inertia exists to sweep extraneous institutions aside to enable a pillar in the fabric of posterity to be erect ed. There was a great cry re cently when our budget was not the expected handout. But here when no money (only principle) was involved, we sit back like baby bullants. No fuss — no bother, because we are all conservative aca demics willing to wait our turn. If the planning authorities have define...

PARTRIDGE Professor of Social Philosophy In December last, the Prime Minister announced his Government's decision that the Australian National University and the Canberra University College should be amalgamated, and he asked the governing bodies of the two institutions to prepare a plan of amalgamation for the guidance of the Government.

RUGBY UNION: U'18s PREMIERS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
RUGBY UNION: U'18s PREMIERS I The 1960 season was a particularly successf ul one for the newly formed Universities' Rugby Union Football Club. All three grades deserve gre at praise for their efforts throughout the year and it must be emphasised that such heights of success would have been impossible without the enthusiastic support and hard work of such men as Kel McGra th, Tom McDermott, Guy Smith, Bruce Kent, Alex Mildren and Ewen Drummond. Players of all grad es must be commended on their keenness at all times. The actual record of the club may be summarised in the following statement: ''All teams made finals.' Such a statement necessitates explan ation and this is it. The First Division side did not reach the semi-finals of the John Dent Cup conducted to decide the premiership side; BUT they did reach the final of the Canberra Cup, which is competed for by teams which did not reach the semi-finals of the former mentioned com petition. To achieve this the team convincingly beat ...

HOCKEY Great things have happened — we won! [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
HOCKEY Great things have happened — we won! Since my last report we have lost 0-3 and 2-3 to Waratahs and Old Canberras respectively, and have beaten Baptists 4-1. Uni. has ended the season playing twice the hockey they were at the beginning and looked worthy of every one of the four points which they obtained. The season in summary has not been a great one for the University but it has been one of improving standards, giving great hope for next season. This was shown in our play at the Goulburn Carnival when we won two of our three mat ches. The play of our reserves was extremely pleasing. Brown Bottles No great feats have occurred in the brown bottle field. Our training in this regard must be intensified. Most capacities should at least be doubled by next season. It is O.K. to lose to Sydney University in hockey, but to lose boat races — SIR — it's a scandal! Early Training Next season we have great hopes of carrying on the im provement of this season. We can do this if we start t...

BUDGET CUT—RESULTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
BUDGET CUT — RESULTS The ambitious building programme which was launched with the commencement of the Haydon-Allen building last year has slowed down considerably. The Hall of Residence and the Physics I building are both well under wTay. Both build ings should be in use by the beginning of 1961. However, the recent budget cut has meant that the Chemistry buildings and facili ties have had to be curtailed considerably. The next buildings to be erected are the Students' Union and an Undergraduate Library. Neither of these buildings have reached the drawing boards yet, but the College Council has considered the appointment of an architect and made suggestions regarding the buildings. While neither of these buildings will be in use next year it is hoped that their nativity will occur before present facilities split at the seams.
