END OF 'HERETIC' [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
END OF 'HERETIC' The Editor has put a stop to the flow of corre spondence regarding 'Here- tic's' stand on misconcep tions about Australian Universities. It was pleasing to see some interest aroused. However, it was much more pleasing to see the article crack a prominent mention in the Student Mirror. This international student newsletter reports 'Heretic' al most verbatim. It appears that the 'Student Mirror' accepts the impressions of 'Heretic' (Alistair Davidson) as being the general thing in Australia. Apart from this the occasion is worthy of note as it is the first time that Woroni has fea tured in the 'Mirror.'

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE I think that all students of the College will be glad to join with me in bidding the College farewell. At the same time we should l.we no qualms about welcoming and being thankful for the change-over. A degree from the new Australian National University will be able to hold its own with that from anv University. The College's end also sees the demise of the C.U.C. Students' Associa tion. We will become the Australian National Uni versity Students' Associa tion. The ex-A.N.U. Stud ents' Association remains independent from us and will carry the title of the A.N.U. Research Students' Association. Future prospects are bright.

ECHOES OF 'THE RESOUNDING TINKLE' [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
ECHOES OF 'THE RESOUNDING TINKLE' As producer of the above masterpiece I would like to thank those members of C.U.D.S. who assisted with production as actors, backstage help, and audience. I hope that in the lajL£$jv capacity, students will^i^w more enthusiasm for anv oth£r productions staged by C.U.D.S. or other groups. p j It is important that theatre should be encouragedVwithin Universities just as mufclr. as. football, bicycle races and-, end of College parties. For instance, it would be a good idea if students came to 'Black Chiffon,' to be pre sented in the College Hall for the next week. Concession rates for party bookings are avail able from Mai Harrison or by ringing me at U1676 (Mrs. Joyce Goodes).

FROM DISTANT PLACES Peru Teachers and Students Win Strike [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 September 1960
FROM DISTANT PLACES Peru Teachers and Students Win Strike After their demands were met in the main by the author ities, the teachers and students of the Peruvian Higher Nor mal School ended their two month-old strike. The strike began on August 11, a day after the Peruvian Government promulgated the university law wnicn retained some ot the un reasonable clauses in the for mer laws governing university education and deprived the Higher Normal School of its university status and its right of autonomy. The strike compelled the Peruvian Government to pro mulgate temporary regulations recognising the university status of the Higher Normal School and granting the uni versities autonomy in teaching and certain independence in administration. Teachers and students of the medical college are still waging an indefinite strike in protest against the discriminating clauses in the university law as their demands have not yet been met. Both strikes were supported by Peruvian students through T3u...

HOCKEY CLUB A.G.N. The Annual Gen eral Meeting of the Women's Hockey Club was held on Tuesday, March 16. Due to a debate which was neiu uunuuiiciuiy ui the Hall of Residence, and a rumour spread by person or persons as yet unknown that the meeting was for last year's members only, the attendance was rather poor. The usual President's and Treasurer's Reports were heard, the latter almost cnnsirif? a riot because the Treasurer felt that the Club had been embezzling her funds.

FRESHERS INTRODUCED TO UNIVERSITY SPORT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961
FRESHERS INTRODUCED TO UNIVERSITY SPORT The Sports Evening held on March 1st in the Hall was arranged to introduce freshers to the various sporting clubs within the University, and to the people controlling those clubs. In general the speakers detailed past performances of their teams, and voiced high hopes for the future. There was, however, one notable exception. Bob Smith, supposedly talking with the aim of persuading freshers to play tennis, began with the words 'Play Squash!' Sports Council President Gwilym Davies began the evening with a few words about the Council and its activities; activities which have increased greatly with our joining the Australian Universities Sporting Association. It was explained how the meagre 10/- per student paid for sports fees is spent, namely by grants made to clubs in proportion to their size, activity, etc., etc. Mr. Davies then intro duced the various club speakers, the first of these being Peter Simpson for the Men's Hockey Club.

OASIS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961
OAM Canberra, 3rd March. — Canberra hotelkeepers have ordered increased supplies as from Monday. They say that the influx of students to the Canberra University is expected to send beer sales soaring. However, they see a | complication in that the | number of male freshers | this year is far in excess jf of the number of pint | glasses available at the I Hotel Civic. [ Mr. Hatcher, it is felt, will overcome this problem somehow or other. THE LAST WORD Most old hands would last week have noticed an absence from our ranks. ! Christine will no longer be with us. To those who ' know her no surname is needed. In a Uni full of part-timers and apathetic students — Christine came like a breath of wind. She did give some aura of the Arts student as depicted by today's journalists and we feel that she' will have no trouble fitting in at Mel bourne University. Shades of the past fade quickly together — that box of volumes in the S.R.C. room has gone — to Mel bourne where Mike was last heard of...

About Alastair Davidson [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961
About Alastair Davidson The new Editor is Alastair Davidson. Recently returned from tours of New Zealand and Aus tralia Alastair spent a great deal of time some years back in Fiji. He is often referred to as 'Jeremy's big brother.' But to those who know him, Alastair is a man unto himself. A keen Law stu dent, he also plays a good game of football and as a schoolboy was a champion swimmer. As 'Heretic,' Alastair made an impression on world student journalism by his article in Woroni last year 'Some Miscon ceptions of Australian Universities.' Living in a flat and being a full-timer Alastair hopes this year to become a fuller man, embrace the Arts and make his world in many ways a corner of Bohemia. His only worry is that the visiting hours of the Hall of Residence with some what limit his scope.
ORIENTATION WEEK LECTURE AND SYMPOSIUM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961
ORIENTATION WEEK LECTURE AND SYMPOSIUM The Orientation Week programme entered its third day on; Wednesday. Two lectures were of especial interest. Pro fessor Wildman,. a visiting Fulbr.ight scholar, delivered a. sho'rt talk entitled 'Universities in America.' It was a pity that his time was limited, as important features of interest such as recreation and extra-curricular activities were omitted. Professor Wildman, an engaging man with an in formal manner of speech, introduced his subject with a resume about American kindergarten, grade, junior high and high schools. He also emphasised the fact that the current doc trine of American educa tion at State Universities was orin-selective entrance for all. This, no doubt, is an important factor in the huge size of the cam puses at both Berkley and University of California, some even totalling forty five thousand students. The annual budget, Professor Wildman informed us, was £50 million. It appeared -from his 'talk that there were surpri...
