BARE TRUTH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
BARE TRUTH PERTH, Thursday: In the early hours of this morning male students from Currie Hall entered tS. Catherine's , Womens College for a two a.m. shower. The operation was carried out in complete silence until the showers were turned on, when they broke out in song and photographed themselves. The only retaliation from the tender inmates was a bucket of water thrown over the photographer, but the raiders made good their escape. Within three hours the pictures were developed and printed, and the raiders re turned, climbing through a window and trampling over a Sister Kates' girl who slept through it all. The pictures were displayed on the noticerboard and the raiders retired, sleepless but tri umphant. One report has it that a woman opened the door be fore the singing started; saw nine men in the shower, said 'Excuse me,' and went back to bed. |
UNION GOES WEST [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
UNION GOES WEST The A.N.U. sent a Rugby Union team to Perth to prove that Canberrans could hold as much liquor as students from any other University. Last week the Rugby team competed in the InterT varsity carnival at Perth. In all, eight universities were represented: Sydney, New South Wales, New England, Queensland, Mel bourne, Adelaide, Western Australia and ourselves. ? The eventual winner ol the Ashai Trophy was Syd ney, and New South Wales won the Kanematsu Cup. Ou rteam had a tough draw, having to play Sydney first match, followed the next day by the home team, Western Australia. After a hard fight, Sydney scraped home to a 42-0 vic tory. However, we put up a good showing against W.A., only being defeated 26-6. Actually it was only two tries Jo one against, but the home team's goal kicker landed six penalties and one conversion from nine attempts — a good ef fort, eh Dave! . Then came our moment of glory — on the football field, that is — when we beat Adelaide 12-6. The play ...

PLANS IFOR THE FUTURE : A conference of over seas students was held during the First Term Vacation between 22nd 25th May. It was spon sored by the NUAUS and the overseas student soci eties. The theme of the Conference was 'The Overseas Students in Aus tralia.' The objectives were gen eral: (a) to achieve greater co ordination between the over seas student bodies.

The idea for the Confer ence initially came from Mr. Y. C. Lee in Adela...
MEANWHILE, ON THE HOME FRONT: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
MEANWHILE, ON THE HOME FRONT: Men's Hockey teams felt the absence of many players, the few who were left to hold the fort being too few to manage it. Severely weakened over he holidays, University earns have been decisively icaten for two weeks. On vlay 13th, A Grade drew vith Waratah 2-2, A Re erve lost to Barton 2-1, md B1 to Barton 6-1. The match against Wara ah was extremely fast, with /niversity leading 1-0 at lalf time. Immediately after half time Waratah ;cored two goals in quick mccession. After many futile raids Dn the Waratah goal, Uni was awarded a penalty bully, from which Vic Gleeson levelled the score. The A Reserve team play ed hard, John Newmar. scoring an unorthodox goal Dff a short corner. They were unlucky not to draw, if not win. At Jerrabomberra the B1 team put up a gallant fight, but were effectively beaten by the more experienced side. On May 20th, the A Grade team, weakened by :he loss of Smithies and '?Coo, were defeated 4-2 by Old Canberrans in a con tinual...

INTERVARSITY INTERCOURSE They had a ball [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
tUTERVARSSTY INTERCOURSE ^#hey had a ball The newly formed Australian football team went to Brisbane to play football, but did not let this aim prevent their enjoying much socal life and not-so-light refreshment. For the first time, an I A.N.U. team took part in an Intervarsity Carni val at Brisbane, and al though it was not alto gether victorious, the team showed the other Universities that there is a University of Canberra, whose members are cap able of holding their own both on and off the field of sport. Due to the necessary pur chase af a set of jumpers, the trip was not subsidised by the Sports Council, and the club, is grateful to that ? bory for the faith which it showed in us in granting us as much financial assistance as it did. Because of this, and because of leave diffi culties with some members o fthie Public Service, a bare twenty players left Can / berra in very high spirits. The train trip to Brisbane was accomplished with a few difficulties, one player being almost ...
Editor at the Summit Active [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
Editor at the Summit Active COMMUNITY Marriage MARKET or in search of TRUTH? A group of quasi mod erns and neotraditional ists drawn from the Uni versities of Western Aus tralia, Adelaide, Mel bourne, Sydney, New England, and A.N.U. met in the Adelaide Hills to determine the purpose of Universities in Australia. After dismissing the ob vious purposes (promotion of breweries, wineries and matrimony), and after being addressed by several people, and much debate, the better side of our natures prevail ed, and it was decided that in general the purposes of Universities should be to provoke students to thought, and by this means encour age students to search for truth, be it classical or scientific. After three days preoccu pation with the above, dele gates turned to lighter things. The A.N.U. delegate learnt how students of many universities enjoyed them selves at Miss University quests, and by participating in 'Beerex Round the University Trials,' and in the process made money to send ...
EDITORIAL COLUMN THE RIGHT OF A FREE PRESS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
I EDITORIAL 1 COLUMN THE RIGHT OF A FREE PRESS IT IS ESSENTIAL that the status of a University newspaper should be determined not by its economic controllers but in accord ance with the dictates of free speech which we hold so dear. There is at present a marked clash be tween University administrations, S.R.C. and international student bodies proceeding on this very bone of contention — status of University newspapers. It is a welcome sign to see Farrago divorce itself from direct S.R.C. censorship and adopt the attitude that 'The elimination of the direct censorship powers of the exec utive is a most welcome improvement in the management of the paper.' At present this newspaper, WORONI, has its functions delimited by S.R.C. regu lations. Any direct editorial contravention of these regulations may be stopped at the direction of the S.R.C. Their attitude is that 'we pay for the paper, it is our official organ.' The result of such iniquity is Illustrated by a further quotation frorr. ...

BACK TO THE BUSH How to be an Australian [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
BACK TO THE BUSH How to be an Australian Inspired by the dram atic success of last year's Bush Week, its insepar able organisers, cobbers Reece and Martin, are working on the master plan of this year's solem nities. Originally conceived as a light-hearted answer to WUS Week, our crusade is developing into a crusade towards national conscious ness. In the words of A. G. Martin, boundary rider extraordinary, to Sir Dallas, Brooks, 'the Australian', ethos faces a black future. National customs and tradi tions recorded as early as the 1930's are fast being submerged under the debris racially and culturally in of numerically superior but ferior nationalities.' Cobbers Reece and Mar tin feel a vocational duty to restore this folklore of their forefathers to its pristine beauty and primeval origin ality. Questioned on the actual date of the Bush Week fix-. tures, Mr. Reece stated unequivocally that 'he hadn't a clue.' By way of explanation, he said: 'Bush Week, essential ly a spontaneous o...

Passive The Subject I Sir, In the March issue of WORONI Bruce McLaugh lin mentioned the need for student concessions. What has the S.R.C. done about it? The Question' A Students' Association card could be issued as identification, with the names of business firms willing to give concessions printed on the back. Un fortunately, these firms are not going to ask us if we would like concessions; we must approach them. One major item of ex penditure is books. If our local booksellers are un willing to offer discount, the S.R.C. should consider es tablishing .a University Bookshop. Initially it might appear an expensive way to save money, but even after offering students discount, if well managed, it should soon be paying handsome dividends to the S.R.C. The bookshop might well form the found...

AND THEIR DEATH RATTLE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
AND THEIR DEATH RATTLE The first important item on the agenda was a motion that £20 be granted to the Law Society to help meet the cost of sending two Canberra entrants to the Inter-Varsity Moot in Ade laide during the May vaca tion. Although there was gen eral agreement that the Law Society should receive finan cial support, there was a strong opinion that a defin ite policy for grants to affiliated societies should be 'worked out before any funds were released. The President's point, that such policy making was not aporopriate at this late stage of the present S.R.C's term of office, was unsup ported and consequently the motion was lost. Mr. Davies submitted a compreh ensive finance scheme for balls and dances, which was accepted, with the proviso that ultimate authority in these matters should be vested in the chairman of the Social Committee. Mr. Mackerras' plea, 'I don't like responsibility,' was ignored. I Treasurer Newman at ! last showed he had the j financial situation high...
A.G.M. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
A.G.M. In 1958 the Annual Gen eral Meeting was the worst ever (Monday, 30th June, WORONI). In 1960 'The Annual General Meeting held last week was a disgusting ex ample of mass hysteria.' The WORONI reporter must sadly add a similar tale about this year's A.G.M. The disgusting feature was noise and Martin rolling on the floor 'frothing inane comments, about sundry subjects.' It is sad to see an ex-editor so carried away by his emotions. - ' Some constructive mo tions were carried. One, moved by Mr. Davies, con cerned compulsory lecture attendance. The administra tion is to be approached for a statement of policy on this matter. Another concerned the late arrival of scholarships. The administration will be asked to intervene with the authorities on this matter too! The status of the A.N.U. Hall was mooted too. The students are now to have first option to use it if their wishes are granted. The new S.R.C. was be latedly announced. Little else was said al though there was continuous sho...
