Chamber music [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 21 March 1961
Chamber music Sir, — May I prevail on you to bring our Society's activities to the notice of your readers? In association with the Musica Viva Society of Australia, we have, since 1956, presented concerts by leading overseas and Australia chamber groups. These concerts are held in the Hall at University House, which is ideal for such intimate music. As Sir Thomas Beecham said when asked his opinion of the Festival Hall, 'It's warm!' The .groups for 1961 are the Allegri Quartet (England), the Quartetto di Roma (two concerts), the Berlin Chamber Orchestra, and the Fine Arts Quartet (U.S.A.). The annual subscription for these five concerts is five guineas. If this seems rather high to any of your readers, we have a number of free tickets available for those willing to move furniture in the Hall before and after concerts. Dates of concerts are shown on a poster on vari ous notice boards around the University. Mrs. Stoljar of the German Department or Mr. C'rawf at the Census Office ; )e ...

nt ? ? s — = — Men's Hockey Teams prepare for the season The A.G.M. of the Hockey Club was held on Tuesday, 9th March.

'Sam, Lake takes over as y Sdc^etdry, while Jim Mc NKay is to fill the position of Treasurer. The Vice Presidents are Peter Simp- j son and Bill Kitchen. After some wrangling over who to elect patron (R.G.M. was suggested), the question was left to the incoming secretary to resolve. The committee members are to be Ron Wier and Jim McKay and Peter Bailey as President-Elect. The meeting ended when the more verbose members ran out of points to raise. However, it was decided to examine the question of equipping the A grade team with new shirts, more fully. The season promises to f be a good' one, judging by II the number of new recruits.

SPORT LAW SOCIETY Secretary's Report [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
[ SPORT [ LAW SOCIETY Secretary's Report I wish here to pay a warm tribute to our President, Walter Palmer, who displayed great proficiency in organisation and preserved rapport between committee members. 1. Constitution During our term of office we were the first society to pass through at a general meeting a constitution in conformity with the Clubs and Societies Regulations of the Students' Association. Affiliation with the S.R.C. was effected, with minor misunderstandings as to the annual grant. 2. Legal Functions In second term a crimin al 'mock' trial was held. Four most educational and entertaining moots were held. We are grateful to the lecturers who arranged and adjudicated them. During Orientation Week a function was arranged to help freshers understand the nature and purpose of legal studies and to intro duce them to lecturers and senior students. The speak ers were Professors Ford and Richardson and Mr. Tarlo. 3. Social Functions The Third Annual Law Ball was held at the...
Rugby Union ALL UNIVERSITY TEAMS SHOWING GOOD FORM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
Rugby Union ALL UNIVERSITY TEAMS SHOWING GOOD FORM The 1961 season has seen the advent of a bigger and better University's club into the A.C.T.R.U. trial matches. To date we have played two trial matches; the first against Goulburn on 11th March and the other the following week against Northern Suburbs. With the help of some 'Imports,' the already strong club side proved too much for both these clubs, and we were decisively victorious on both occasions. Mel Bungey, Alan Ward, Ian James, Tim Clarke, Ian McDougall and Co. will again form the crux of the forward pack, but they will always have to be in top form to keep their positions against a large group of eager forwards from Re serve Grade. The backline will this year be strong. Those of you who witnessed many of last year's matches would find this practically beyond the realms of comprehen sion. Individually the backs last year were good, but as a backline they weren't al ways the best. This position has been remedied and we will ...

LAWYERS HOLD THEIR A.G.M. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
LAWYERS HOLD THEIR A.G.M. On the evening of 15th of March, the Common Room was filled by approximately forty members of the legal fraternity, who attended the Annual General Meeting of the Law Society. Before discussing the principal business of the meeting a vote of thanks should be expressed to the outgoing President Walter Palmer and his committee for their excellent work during 1960. The main item on the agenda was the election of office-bearers for 1961. These were elected as follows: — President, Peter Ryan; Vice-President, Lance Murray; Secretary, Sue Schreiner; Treasurer, Ed Simon; Committee Mem bers, Jenny Johnson, Dick Viney and Tony Whitlam. This was the first general meeting since the amalga mation of the C.U.C. with A.N.U. and thus it was essential to change the name of the Society during the proceedings in order to establish conformity. After some discussion the new name decided on was 'The Australian National Uni versity Law Society.' Another historical and highly com...

Student News... From here and everywhere PERTH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
Student News . . , From here and everywhere PERTH I After a lapse of a year j Prosh will rampage through the streets of Perth again in 1961. To get round objections by police and public Prosh will be held in a lunch hour. Demands are also being made for an Aqua tic Prosh on the river. Negotiations have been going on for the best part of some time and have finally resulted in -lectures being cancelled to allow for the preparation of floats. But for this Prosh could probably not have been held, as complaints about evening Proshes have been mounting over the years. It is a happy coincidence that students decided to give the proceeds of the Prosh col lections to the two big name appeals, the 'Cgair of Commerce and the Empire Games, before making their application. In addition a group -of students are pressing for a Prosh on the river, which would give full scope to the towdiness which must be suppressed in the streets. They think that the word 'float' would really come to mean something...
Some Students Participate Canberra Day [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
Some Students Participate Canberra Day Due to the efforts of two-thirds of the Rags Com mittee and a small band of non-apathetic students, the Uni's contribution to the Canberra Day Procession was quite memorable. The floats depicted: 1. Frivolous Cabinet Ses sion with constantly chang ing decisions on Credit Squeeze. 2. Newspaper covered gentlemen reclining on a park bench as a comment on Canberra's housing situ ation. 3. John Rayner, the bearded non-union barber, skilfully removing hair from Mr. Paul Pentony's head, with the aid of hedge clip pers and basin. At least the charge was only five shillings at this clip joint. 4. A disorganised Congo lese Army rabble that pro vided the public with a change of Prime Minister every five minutes. Miss Maurer capably acted the part of Mrs. Lumumba and demanded support from the public. In hot pursuit of the Congolese Army was a jeep filled with personnel from the U.N. Vacillation Squad, Secretary Dag at the helm. A sinister attempt to throw ...
'Pnin' - Exquisite Nabakov Novel [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
'Fnin'- Bx^uUite Nabakov Novel Reviewed by R. Recce Your copy is available at ^ Cheshires Vladimir Nabokov is beginning to enjoy deserved popularity. A Penguin edition as unpretentious as Professor Timojey Pnin himself has consigned this work to the shelves of the intellectual oaoerbacks. Nabokov, like Josef Con rad, is something of a rara avis in English literature. Since 1940 he has been writing in English, and 'Pnin' demonstrates a pre cision of expression and a lightness of touch which many English authors could well imitate. Kinsley Amis is the first of them that comes to mind- — the com parison with 'Lucky lim' is obvious. After Nabokov's well-bred ease and discern ing perspicuity, Amis seems a malicious schoolboy lay ing about him with a liter ary meataxe. Waindell College, the temporary haven of emigre Pnin presents in contrast \yith overdrawn r Professor Welch and' 'his lunatic col leagues a galaxy of lightly sketched academics of an only too realistic nature. Clements, the...
EDITORIAL COLUMN THE NEED FOR THINKING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
EDITORIAL COLUMN THE NEED FOR THINKING The average student is not really a member of a university. He lives in a microcosm composed of his special sphere of study, the everyday necessities of eating and drinking, and his sundry extra-curricular activities. Few of our students see themselves in their real context — in a microcosm which is the civilization of Mankind. Hence their lack of sympathy for those ideas, ideals, and people about which they too often say, 'What can I do about it all?' All too frequently we can only think jabout what are referred to as 'world problems.' How many stop to think that this is doing 'something about it'? If we do not think about the Eich mann affair and the pending trial, about Lumumba and the Congo, about the implications of atomic warfare and the threat of Communism, we are not con tributing to the progression of our civil ization towards ultimate perfection. A university student is in the van guard of society but his most important impact comes f...
An Original Short Story "Day by Day" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
An Original Short Story 'Day by Day' By Malcolm Harrison They were both sprawled out under the free and it was really very pleasant. The sun was shining, the birds . . . well, the usual routine. 'Do you love me,' she said, 'really love me.' 'Of course I do,' he replied, 'honest and truly.' He turned the page and went on reading; actually when he got into it Plato wasn't so bad after all. There was a short silence and then she said, 'What's the time?' '3.35.' 'Aren't we going to tea?' 'In a moment. There'll be a rush right now.' There were two other groups, both idly discussing commonplaces among them selves, but she made no movement to join either. Instead she went outside onto the verandah and stood for a while gazing at the sky, the shifting sun leaving the farther sky the deep blue which heralds the ap proach of dusk. Ambling slowly she made her way to j. the Library. She nodded her thanks to the nun, hold | ing the door open for her and smiled somewhat dis tractedly at the girl ...
IS A RIVERINA UNIVERSITY NEEDED? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
IS A RIVERINA UNIVERSITY NEEDED? At the present moment this old chestnut is being subjected not just to the usual roasting but to a veritable auto-da-fe in Riverina newspapers and muni cipal council chambers. Self-important aldermen and retired graziers vie with each other in parochial ex cesses; momentous letters are written to 'The Editor' and harangues are inflicted through the courtesy of the ABC regional stations; local members are petitioned and accordingly ask questions. The support' for intellectual endeavour seems to be reaching the high water mark in the provinces. But in this deluge of let ters, statements, and the activities of an impossible number of leagues, societies, guilds and councils the ideal of university is transformed to a high class tourist at traction. 'University' ap pears in a single sentence with 'Soil Research Sta tion,' 'Baby Health Cen tre' and 'Old People's Rest Home.' The support for a uni versity is heartwarming but the motives demand a little more ...
White Australia Bad? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
White Australia Bad? _ Two young Australian girls who arrived in Singapore last week de cried the White Australia Policy as being entirely unjustified. They are Miss Glenda Felton, 21, and' Miss Chris tine Dobbin, 19, of the University of Sydney, who came to Singapore to attend the 1st International Con ference of South-East Asian Historians as observers. Both of them are reading Arts in the University with History as their speciality. Miss Glenda Felton said that she felt that there was absolutely no justification for such a policy, and added there were many groups of persons who were fighting against such a policy. Miss Felton added that that the students in Austra lia themselves were not in favour of such a policy, especially after having met students from Asian coun tries. Both Miss Felton and Miss Dobbin told the UNDERGRAD that they were impressed with the kindness of the students here. — (Reprinted from j THE MALAYAN j UNDERGRAD)
OASIS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
OAM 'I don't believe in ethics.' Father McKenna. Overheard recently: 'The male opinion around this University seems to be that women should be seen and not heard; the more seen and the less heard the bet ter.' Street lights have at last been put up' along Univers ity Avenue, much to the relief of the residents at the Hall. It is hoped that the Department of the Interior will continue its good work, and provide a footpath be fore rains make the route impassable again! 'The Miss University 1961 competition is only open to females.' 'Pelican.' Also of interest to the residents of the Hall is the rumour _ that University Avenue is to be blocked off at Nicholson Crescent, so that it serves only Univers ity buildings. Does anyone know . anything factual on this subject?. Interesting sight last week — the tutor and half of his students taking a cat-nap during a tutor ial. 'I hope this is not going to be a repetition of to morrow.' Henry Satrapa. A male resident of the Hall, it is said, saw...
MEET THE WARDEN Mr. Packard Interviewed [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961
MEET THE WARDEN Mr. Packard Interviewed A bespectacled six-footer with a wide grin is becoming well known to the residents of the Hall. He is Mr. Packard, the first warden. It is hoped to introduce him to all readers. Mr. Packard's answers to an interviewer will be reported at length, -as his co-operation during a two-hour interview proved both rewarding and enlightening. Mr. Packard was an undergraduate at Canter bury University in New Zealand. With the excep tion of one year, he was a part-timer. His extra curricular life is one to be emulated by our part timers too, for not only was he S.C.M. President, but he was also for two years captain of the Cross Country Running Club, and of the University Tramping Club. The fullness of his participation in University life was perhaps brought to fruition when in 1948, after having been a pri mary school teacher and a demonstrator on the academic staff at Canter bury University, he ulti mately won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford to continue ...
