Religious Dishonesty of Students [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961

Religious Dishonesty of Many Students 'Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.' In rcccnt days, I have I become aware of what is ? perhaps intellectual dis ,t£ honesty on the part of some students, when the subject of religion is under discussion. I am speaking of Roman Catholics, or at least those Catholics who can talk coherently on the subject. Before I drop the per sonal note, I want to make several things clear. I my self am hot a Christian. I try to respect the reason able opinions of others. I am hot criticising any par ticular person or persons; rather, this is a challenge . to whom it may. concern to clarify his/her own ap proach to a central prob lem—the extent to which faith is subordinate to reason, or vice versa. I have' addressed myself to the Catholic community of this university, chiefly be cause there is no articulate Protestant intel...

Misguided Student Values [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961

Misguided Student Values Last A.G.M. of the Students' Association, Mr. Barry Schick, one-time Association President, denied that student apathy was a current problem. He asserted that many sporting clubs were active, and that this proved his point. This prompts the reflec tion that the present gener ation of students is much inclined to view student activity as being fully em bodied in one set only, of activities, made up mainly of the non-intellectual or vigorous. It is felt that once these pastimes are set in motion, the place be comes a University. One could detail sport, sex, in discriminate jazz - loving, drinking, and so on. Genu ine amorality, cynicism, Henry James-loving, les bianism and so on are out. Students' rags are in. It may be that this time of cold war is, in reality, the most placid ever. Not only are there few fervently held beliefs but there is a careless disregard of the examination of'*the beliefs of others and of the nature of men. Those activities that are th...

The Hall [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961

The BiaBI Having received a good working knowledge of Canberra hostel life last year, I still found the Hall of Residence a new and rather pleasing exper ience. This may be attributed to the importance of tradition, the 100 per cent student population, or even to a preconceived notion on my own part that I was not going to enjoy life at the 'Hall.' ?Another impressive fact is that its population is so cosmopolitan; Australians from Western Australia to Queensland, students from overseas, a New Zealand Warden — unity in diversity. Also, these people range from graduates to raw freshers, from the hellfor leather types to the con firmed swots. Such a diversified group leads to interesting exper iences, such as a group of freshettes having their training runs for. hockey up and down one of the corridors, and all night poker schools in the men's blocks. And there was the inci dent of the male student who saw a female climbing through a lower-story win dow, and found, after chal lenging h...

BREAKDOWN IN OUR S.R.C. GOVERNMENT S.A.C. Elections . . . Apathy . . . Bureaucracy . . . and . . . By GEORGE MARTIN Freshers will soon be faced with the exciting prospects of taking part in electing the new S.R.C. This event which usually arouses considerable interest is quickly forgotten and the students' representative body is left in peace to conduct the students' affairs. Soon we hear cries of student apathy being belched from the mouths of disappointed members of the S.R.C. following the collapse of student functions. Presidents and Secre taries cry that students won't participate in S.R.C. functions and that apathy is abounding. With the establishment of the Hall of Residence it would seem that this is a good year to examine and if possible rectify the cause of this apathy. Having lived with the problem for over two years, I think that the reason is inside rather than outside the S.R.C. There has been a breakdown in student government. I am willing to wager that less than one ...

NEED FOR NEW UNIVERSITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961

NEED FOR NEW UNIVERSITIES A new university housing 8,000 students would be needed every two years if the future enrolments at Australian universities were to be met, Sir Leslie Martin said. Sir Leslie, Chairman ? of the Australian Universities Commission, was address ing the convocation of the Melbourne University. 'The problem facing ter tiary education in Australia today arises from a large increase in enrolment and a critical lack of exper ienced staff of quality,' Sir Leslie said. 'The resources of most universities will be wholly committed by 1964. By 1966, 12 in every 1,000 of the population will be en rolled at a university,' Sir Leslie said. The initial capital invest ment for each institution needed would be £25m. to £30m.

'ONE UP' IS REVUE NAME [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 April 1961

'ONE UP ' /* REVUE NAME The other night I went to a Revue rehearsal. There were about fifty people there rehearsing either the Fall of the Tower of Babel, or the Breaking of the Old Guard at Waterloo. I decided to ask the man at the top. This was easy because forty sec onds later he was the man at the bottom, be cause the musical direc tor was sitting on him shouting 'Bassoons and pipe organs or nothing,' and ' the dress designer was taking the opportun ity to murmur 'Gold lame is only seven guineas a yard, and it'll last the eight nights easily.' The other top man was supervising the players themselves. 'Sounds like d i s o r g anised confusion, doesn't it?' he smiled, a mischievous dimple appear ing on his chin. He quickly wiped it off on his tie, with a muttered apology, and went on, 'Just listen and you'll find that it's organ ised confusion.' Sure enough I found one group was muttering 'Rhubarb,' a second 'Cus- tard' and a third was in terjecting 'Soda water bot tle.' Reassured...

Weight-lifting Do You Need Building Up? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

Weight-lifting Do You Need Building Up? Those of you who at tended the Orientation Week Sports Evening will remember my proposal for a weight-lifting and weight training club. The many inquiries I have had since have con vinced me that there is definitely sufficient interest in the University for such a club. Unfortunately costs of weights and a place to train prevent us from making it a purely University concern. I do not feel that we can expect the S.R.C. to fork out £.100 odd, to satisfy what, in many people, will be a passing fancy. On the other hand, the Y.M.C.A. Hall has recently been fin ished and the Association will be moving in early in May. They do have a fair ly active weight-lifting club and about £50 or £60 worth of equipment. I have approached one of its members and he feels confident that we will be able to come to some ar rangement with the Y.M. C.A. to use their equipment. Meetings would be held during the week-day after noons on a general rule, but those who could...

Women's Hockey WOMEN AGAIN IN ACTION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

Women's Hockey WOMEN AGAIN IN ACTION The hockey season is with us once again, and the Women's Hockey Club is preparing to take on all comers (in hockey). The club has grown con- 1 siderably this year — this can probably be attributed to its success last year— and those concerned are quite justified in thinking that this is the year that the first grade team will finish the season on top. The second grade team has also grown in strength, and should also go close to taking the prem iership in its grade. The club extends a warm welcome to all those who have ioined this year. The survival of the club is de pendent on the newcomers each year, and it is very satisfying to see the large number of enthusiastic young players turning up at practice. By next year the club hopes to be able to field three teams — one in each of the three grades — all of which will be able to hold their own. To enable the club to rise to these great heights, enthusiastic support is es sential, and all students ar...

y ^TE'lin/iO' 11111 The i n a u gural meeting of the Aus tralian Rules Football Club was held on April 12. At this meeting Ian Lam bert was elected President, Vice-President Julien Scott, Secretary Geoff Roberts, and Treasurer David Munro. The S.R.C. has previously agreed to grant £80 to the team for the purpose of purchasing jumpers and also to help subsidise the trip to Brisbane for the Inter varsity carnival. Players are reminded that, as it costs money to put the team in the field, a subscription of 10/- is due before the 1st May. On Saturday, 8th April, a practice game was played against R.M.C. University ran out easy winners by over 100 points, best play ers being Peter Engel, David Munro, Ian Lambert, Geoff Roberts, Julien Scott and Hugh Brophy. R.M.C.

Men's Hockey Kenna Cup Successful [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

Men's Hockey Kenna Cup Successful i Both teams entered for the Kenna Cup com petition on Saturday, 8th April, did well. The A Grade team reached the quarterfinals of the Kenna Cup, and the A Reserve team reached the quarter finals of the Richardson Cup. The A Grade team in its first match scored a con vincing win (1-0) over Bigga. Right at the begin ning the team was playing well together with splendid anticipation and accuracy of passes. The next game was with R.M.C. 3 which only re sulted in a 1-0 win due per haps to a rare spasm of over-confidence. The piece de resistence of the day was a 1-0 win over the top grade Central team. This is the first time that Uni versity has come anywhere near defeating Central. After winning the three scheduled matches the team qualified for the quarter finals of the Kenna Cup and was subsequently beat en 2-0 by Goulburn Colts.

Men's Basketball A.G.M. IN CIVIC [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

Men's Basketball A.G.M. IN CIVIC i The A.G.M. of the old C.U.C. Men's Basketball Club was held in most congenial surroundings — the beer garden of the Civic — and many non-members enjoyed the proceedings. Unfortunately, the Sports Council has definitely decided not to pay the expenses of this meeting. The activities of the pre vious year were summed up with typical brevity and efficiency, although the Treasurer is asked to use more appropriate paper for this year's books. Programme adopted Several items were then discussed by the meeting and, despite the efforts of some Melbourne matter, the following programme for 1961 was adopted: Firstly, moves are being made to join up with the A.F.S. for financial and social reasons, with an afterthought to basketball. On the sporting agenda, the Club will enter the local winter competition in A or A Reserve grade, if present form keeps up. A trip to Intervarsity in Brisbane in August is en visaged if support and the Sports Council remain frien...

EDITORIAL COLUMN CLASS-CONSCIOUSNESS AT UNIVERSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

I EDITORIAL I I COLUMN I CLASS-CONSCIOUSNESS AT UNIVERSITY Recently another University newspaper contained a cartoon in which a 'beatnik' and a rather pukka young man were sitting together, both in gowns. Said one to the other, 'I dig this crazy gown jazz. It's a real social leveller.' These words set me meditating on their truth. Is a university really conducive to the destruction of the social barriers based on all grounds or does it actually discard the social hierarchy of the outside world for one of its own? It is not unfair to say that an aristocracy of merit has often been upheld as ideal. Plato plumps for such a system, so does Burke. But both base this aristocracy on a relative intellectual capacity. The corollary to this is that somebody is the most intelli gent, or intellectually forceful and thus we substitute an individualistic standard which sooner or later will result in social barriers based on the intellect. Whether such a system is better or worse than any other is...

Rugby Union UNIVERSITY DEFEATS TWO TOP 1960 TEAMS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 May 1961

Rugby Union UNIVERSITY DEFEATS TWO TOP I960 TEAMS Tough and prolonged forward play combined with brilliant combination from the backline has paved the way for two decisive wins over last year's top sides, Royals and R.M.C. I. This side is giving an I early indication of what may be expected from University teams in sea sons to come. Even after last year's quite successful effort no-one really ex pected the University side to be quite as powerful as they have recently shown. i Such impressive progress has been due, in great part, to the rejuvenation of the backline. We now have brilliant centres Keith Chandler and Ross Treve tham to add polish to our attack. Ross and Keith, with a . few years of experience be hind them, have combined exceptionally well with half Gwilym Davies and five eight Dave Fisher, our cap tain. With regard to matches played so far, I may only say that Royals were crush ed by a hard running pack of forwards and completely bewildered by an elusive set of backs. T...

Mr. Martin's ellegations may possibly be warranted — I don't know of anyone, excluding members of the Students' Association, sufficiently well-informed to substantiate these state ments. Admittedly there were unfortunate instances when the handling of S.R.C. affairs underwent sharp criticism but the article, itself, developes into little more than a disparagement of the characters of cer tain persons, something considerate people would not expect fo Mr. Martin on an appraisal of his edu cational upbringing.
