COMMON ROOM FACELIFT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

COMMON ROOM FACELIFT Shortly the Common Room will take on a new form. A link with the past will be broken and Freshers will not know how the Common Room locked before the advent of the Canberra Univers ity. The description of the Common Room which appeared in the Orienta tion handbook will no longer be pertinent. During the vacation, the. administration, the archi tect and representatives of the Students' Association conferred and agreed to make considerable altera tions to the Common. Room which will . involve . the Common Room, the Games Room and the Buttery. The old 'phone booth which has always . been an eyesore is to be removed to a less conspicuous posi tion. The few inadequate lockers are to be removed and the Games Room util ised as part of the Com mon Room. The present magazine rack is to be improved and enlarged: Providing conditions are not too difficult during the transformation, we ,can look forward to adequate Common Room facilities in 1961.

EDITORIAL COLUMN ABOUT THIS PAPER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

I EDITORIAL I 1 COLUMN I ABOUT THIS PAPER The editor and his staff wsh all new comers to the A.N.U. a hearty welcome and take pleasure in informing them that they have come to the best University in Australia. Having commenced on this loyal though biased note we shall intro duce you to your student newspaper WORONI. WORONI, meaning message stick, was first seen wrapping up fish and chips around the now defunct C.U.C. Originally a gestetnered news-sheet, it developed two years ago into a rather larger printed paper. The size and format in which it is printed to-day will be new not only to you but to readers of previous WORONIs. Much is owed to this last two editors Chris Jay (since editor of Farrago), who made it one of the best-known student newspapers in Australia due to certain articles in the Sunday papers; and George Martin who built it up into its present attractive form. This year further innovations will take place which we hope will make the paper even better. Our staff has ...

DRAMATIC SOCIETY ACTIVITIES YOU TOO CAN BE LIKE THIS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

DRAMATIC SOCIETY | ACTIVITIES YOU TOO CAN BE LIKE THIS The University Dramatic Society appeals to all members of the University, both Students and Post Graduates, to take an interest in and become members of our club. The activities of the club are on the in.crease. Last year- a one act play was entered in the Annual Eis teddfod and a three act play was presented for four nights at the beginning of third term. This year we hope to spread our activities over a wider field and to give much attention to other sections' of the theatre. We hope to arrange some lec tures throughout the year by various speakers, on such subjects as: The History of Drama. Universtiy Revues in Sydney. The Art of Make-up (with demonstrations). Also impromptu play readings are planned, in which everyone will have a chance to display his tal ent, and we hope to bor row some of the Marlowe Society's recordings of Shakespeare's plays, from the Canberra Record Lib rary. For those interested in backstage work, and ...

Entertaining Results Free love is on the wane [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

Entertaining Results Free love is on the wane The Government, with charming vulgarity, at tempted to allay the fears of all morally minded peo ple. They attempted to show that with present social freedom the renegade 'Free Love' had no cause to exist. ( Those intellectuals of the ; twenties, said Frazer, had { cause to rebel. This is not ) the case to-day. Given a | society where the numerous \ restrictions of the past are i removed, the want for sex 5 ual debauchery fades. Upon I this moral basis the govern ment rested, exhausted. With unusual ineffici ency the opposition set | out to show that it was a | fallacy to suppose that the hey day of free love was long past. Farmyard aspects Egyptian polygamy, it was claimed, had farmyard aspects, and Grecian homo sexuality suffered also from the intensity of its practice. Banal delight usurped the sacredness of the thought. Thus free love existed not then but now. , Perhaps not so obvious ; to both teams was the fact that free love as a ...

Orientation week well organised Welcome to Freshers [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

Orientation week well organised I Welcome ie Freshers I About 200 students attended the welcome to freshers on the Monday afternoon of Orientation Week. Some 70 part timers attended another welcome, held that evening to make it more convenient to attend. Professor H. Burton and Mr. Peter Ryan each delivered an address welcoming new students. In the course of his speech, Professor Burton said that he felt almosll obliged to apologize to stu . dents for the lack of stu dent facilities. However, he reminded the assembly that lecture rooms would be made available for club meetings and also that within the next three years a Students' Union building would be erected. In addition, the Principal referred to the happy re lationship which existed be tween the Students' Associ ation and hte Administra tion. He said that in a Universtiy of the compar atively small size of this one it was an easy matter to maintain a close and easy staff - student relation ship. It was gratifying to see so many...

"BIG DADDY" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

'BIG DADDY' The President of the S.R.C. is the high est position within the Students Associ ation that a student can hold. The President is P. K. E. I Ryan, Esquire. He is easily recognisable — a middle aged man, slightly greying and with an air of experi ence. But to put the Fresher into the picture let the truth be told and no facts withheld. Peter is a full time student, a Common wealth scholar and in his final year of Law. He is a lot younger than he looks and drives a machine that is nominally a Singer and goes rather well. During his term of office Peter has quietly and effi ciently done his very best for the i PUlents of this col lege. He has put up a very good show against a divided and often hostile S.R.C. He has finally gained its co-operation and as a result has been able to achieve a great deal. Never during his term of office has his support of Woroni faltered. He defied a split vote to caste his support of an honor arium for the Editor at a general meeting. He has had ...

University - a degree shop [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

University - a degree shop Part of the programme for Orientation Week was a lunch-time debate on Friday, the point of contention being 'Is the University a degree shop?' Mr. Nos worthy as Chairman kept some sem blance of order by threatening heckler Gleeson with physcial violence and issu ing a prohibition on all remarks (except his own) which were not clever. S.R.C. President Ryan opened for the affirmative argument, pointing out that the lack of amenities for non-studious activities at the School of General Studies, as well as the large proportion of part-timers, precluded everything but a degree shop. Meanwhile, at the table's end, debater Clark managed to raise a hair weighted head above the level of his outstretched no. 9's to make unsport ing comments. 'The University is not a degree shop,' said opposi tion leader Davies; to prove his point, he added, 'If I get out of here with a degree, it won't be the only thing I take with me.' There was also talk of mutual stimulation. Mr....

The Stones Still Grind [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

The Ztonef itill (frinb On television some months ago I witnessed an interview between an A.B.C. reporter and an obese Labour M.P. of the die-hard tradition, whose policies belonged in pre-war days. The interview came to the stage where the M.P. firmly asserted that the A.L.P. was a crisis government, and that judging from the state of the nation's economy under the Menzies' admin istration, a depression was imminent. He believed that Labour would then seize its opportunity, hand the title of opposition ; leader to R.G., and set about restoring order 'in the economy. With the required agility, the inter viewer asked whe ther in -fact the M.P. wanted Labour for a government. Yes; of course. Then why, queried the . interviewer, with a surprising show of logic, why should -you want a -crisis,, such as a depres sion, which will puti men out of work, simply so that Lab our can obtain con trol of the govern- . ment in order to put them back to work, again? I may not be as adept as the Mas...

REVUE REVIEWED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

REVUE REVIEWED On the 28th February, the University Dramatic Society and the Revue Committee combined in an evening's enter tainment aimed at showing the freshers two more of the University's ? extraneous activities, in an effort to encourage support for both these groups. Judging from the obvious - enjoyment of the large audience- both committees should be inundated with requests to participate in the year's productions. ^ . This is to be especially hoped for by the Dramatic Society, ; as the study of Drama is ignored by the University as a whole, . and this society gives the students their only opportunity to v study Acting and Theatre-craft generally. The U.D.S. presented r a play-reading of 'The Bear' by Chekhov. An excellent choice, involv ing as it did, only three people and very little movement. The producer, Malcolm Harrison, an nounced this as a com edy, which it most cer-. tainly is, and then allow ed it to be read in much too farcical a manner. Peter Rowley, who it must b...

Obituary [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

Obituary Sir,— When Dr., Murray Todd left Canberra in 1956 to become Professor of English at the University of Tasmania, his students were pleased that his ener getic and perceptive intelli gence was receiving further well-merited recognition. Now, a few short years later, comes the news of his death on 30th Decem ber at the age of 36. Murray Todd was one of several outstanding English lecturers this University has had, and those who were privileged to study under him will readily recall the high quality of his courses. Lectures were thought fully and thoroughly pre pared; full of good, strong, healthy, constructive, criti cal content; delivered in his rapid, nervously vigorous manner. In lectures and tutorials he was sympathetic, genial and encouraging to his stu dents, and if one occasion ally detected a note of dog matism one also knew that his opinions were based on careful consideration stem ming from lively cand genu ine interest in both liter ature and life. The late Professo...

FIRESIDE CHAT A fatherly word from S.R.C. President, Peter Ryan [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

FIRESIDE CHAT A fatherly word from S.R.C. President, Peter Ryan This will be the first year in which undergraduate teaching in Canberra is carried on independently of Melbourne University. All of us will be affected by the changes which can be expected. We are or at least should be better off than the other Universities because we are the only one to which the Commonwealth's purse strings are directly avail able. One would think that the government could be persuaded to open them to the tune of providing de cent Union facilities for the one and only Federal University in Australia. The Australian Univers ities' Commission has be come perhaps unwittingly a stumbling block in the path of this University's privi leged access to Common wealth funds. The Commission's Re port in November, 1960, does not show that it was impressed by the urgent need for Union facilities here although students in the State Universities are benefiting from large Union expansion programmes which are already w...

A.N.U. or Canberra University WHAT IS IN A NAME? ASKS THE EX-EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

A.N.U. or Canberra University WHAT IS IN A NAME? ASKS THE EX-EDITOR By GEORGE MARTIN These views are strict ly those of the writer, not of the S.R.C. or Woroni staff. Monday, 6th March, saw the opening of the academic year for 1961. This year promises to be the most propitious for many and it will be the first year of the Canberra University as such. Previously the Canberra University College was merely 'a degree shop for public servants. More than this all trans actions had to be conducted by mail order. But the commencement of 1961 sees a semi-autonomous University come into existence with an enrolment of over 1,000. The Canberra University is unique among Univers ities in Australia. Until recently a University was the centre of advanced learning of the State to which it belonged. There was only one University in each State and Common wealth aid was unheard of. Since the war the pic ture has changed and the idea of provincial Uni versities was pioneered with the formation of the U...

LETTERS Abusive Informative Constructive Reformative Student Concessions [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

LETTERS Abusive Informative Constructive Reformative Student Concessions Sir,— May I bring to the attention of the readers of this newspaper the press ing 'need to arrange some form of financial conces sions for the students of A.N.U. with some of the business firms in Canberra. This is something that students of other Univers ities take for granted. Such things as haircuts, clothing, books and other needs of students are available to them at rates which attract more business to the firms offering those concessions. Might I suggest that firm steps be taken by the S.R.C. to follow the example of other Australian Univers ities and gain some of these privileges for us. Bruce McLaughlin.

FRESHER EXPRESSION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

FRESHER EXPRESSION UNIVERSITY LIFE, in all its varigated forms, can be rewarding. It is usually expected that at university a young student will cast off the restraining elements of his or her schooldays and become a more rounded person; a more mature identity. One of the first modes in which he may exercise his new-found freedom is by asserting himself in thought, word and action as an individual. A constructive way of doing this is through the various organs of student expression; in debate, in drama, and in writing for this paper. If a freshman feels strongly about anything he should write about it. He is no longer shackled by adult discipline. He ? is now honoured by the prefix Mr. He may now express himself as an adult. The 'grown-ups' who surround him are no longer, per se, his betters, or are privileged in any way. The fresher may now be an iconoclast without being con sidered impudent.* To certain diehard old sophomores he may be an upstart; however, many 'up- starts' have p...

S.C.R. HOLDS MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

S.C.R. HOLDS MEETING The Editor had the misfortune to attend the second meeting of the S.R.C. on 7th March. All members were in attendance, although Mr. Pat Flynn did not arrive until the conclusion of business. The President, Mr. Ryan, made his apologies. It was with regret that the Editor noted that the meeting was characterised by verbosity, inefficiency, and lack of discipline. Some business was, how ever, conducted although a great amount of construc tive criticism was lost in the furore. Certain items of business are of general interest. A motion was put that the A.G.M. be held on 2nd May and seconded by Mr. McKerras. It was carried by a unanimous ovte. As the elections for a new S.R.C. must be conducted not closer than five days to the A.G.M., the tentative date for this year's elecitons are the 18th, 19th and 20th of April. The adopition of new printers, the Canberra Press Pty. Ltd., for Wor oni was also carried unanimously. A contract is to be entered into. A long time ago ...

Theatre Players [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961

Theatre Players Sir, — Many of the new comers this year do not know about the 'Old Time Music Hall Evening' pre sented by the Theatre Play ers in conjunction with the University Dramatic Soci ety in December last year. This was a highly success ful and amusing evening. It netted a profit for both the Theatre Players and the University Dramatic Soci ety, but could have made a greater profit if more mem bers of the University had given their support. The Theatre Players ex tend their thanks to those students who worked with us, and hopf that we can continue to co-operate in the fuiijvt. J »-}?£{- N. Goodes Public Officer, liKatre Players.
