ALEC HOPE ON POETRY AND PERCEPTION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

ALEC HOPE ON POETRY AND PERCEPT ION A commonly held view of the nalure of human experience is thai it can be divided into that knowledge which comes to us in the form of direct or unmediated perception — things we hear, see, smell taste and feel and events in the conscious life of each individual of which he himself directly aware — and, on the other hand, that knowledge which comes to us mediately by inference or report — events distant in time or space, events beyond the scope of sensory perception and the minds and feelings of people other than ourselves. In general there seems to be no reason to quarrel with this view. But if we look more closely at the notion of direct percep tion., it may be argued that while such perceptions are direct, they are not 'immediate', that is un mediated. In vision the eye, rays of light and other media intervene between the object perceived and the perceiver. The eye is an in strument by means of which we see, analogous to the hand as an instrumen...

NO HOPE FOR WENDY SHAW Reflections on Korea [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

NO HOPE FOR WENDY SHAW Reflections on Korea I I We are watching an ugly and I disgusting little war which will j probably develop into a huge and \ disastrous Armageddon. We are I not on the right side ; possibly we i are not even on. the winning side : i this is a war in which everyone I will lose, and no one is right. This is the outcome of our scientific and economic progress in the twentieth century ; of the smooth streamlined civilisation of America; of every thing that has been held in high esteem. It is the outcome of man's essential nature : vicious stupidity, sentimentality, acquisitiveness and animal courage ... But there are things one can learn from it. One is that people don 't hate war. They pretend to, from time to time ; they are sentimental, not sin cere. They are prepared to general ise, to condemn the vague idea of war; but as each war approaches, they say first 'It is inevitable,' then ' It is necessary, ' then 'It is right.' And later, when it is over, ' ' There...

CRICHTON TOSSES HEADS Dymphna Cusack's "Come in Spinner" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

[?] Some comments on another 'Great Australian Novel by Jill Crichton. Dymphna Cusctck's 'Come in Spinner' I was led to read this latest Australian novel after hearing an almost lyrical review cum inter view of the authors by Michael Sadleir on the B.B.C. recently. It seemed that this £1000 prize winning novel on the American occupation of Sydney during World 'War II might be a fine piece of work. The authors had apparently had first hand exper ience of the social cures of the period, and from Dymphia Cusack's earlier collaboration with Miles Franklin in 'Pioneers on Parade,' a witty satire on the Australian Centenary celebrations. I hoped that something interesting and worthwhile had been written. Unfortunately, readers of the book 'Come in Spinner' are doomed to disappointment. It is a slight piece of work. This is partly due to the peculiar social philo sophy of the collaborators. (One must take it that they both sub scribe to the wooly, sentimental left-wingerism apparent throug...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

EDITORIAL We suppose it customary for new editors, to greet readers with protestations of policy, with some new cause ripe for the losing, with abuse of student apathy. Despite severe temptation to do this, we shall digress. 'Was it Lamb who said that essays were but digressions — or was it Uncle Toby ? It has been claimed that Feakes is lazier than Parkinson, this claim is strongly denied by the latter; they agree, however, that they are both so lazy that unless someone else writes articles for this paper, you won't get a Woroni.' Our distinguished predecessors inform us, in strict confidence— a condition which, however, does not prevent our bruiting their remarks abroad in much the same way as the contents of letters marked PERSONAL pass in Canberra from mouth to mouth— that they had to write nearly all of last year's articles; at least those that were good, popular and intellectual and that some famous names were made in the process. The guarantee that your contribution will appe...

GOODBYE WILSONISM: AMERICA DRIES HER EYES THE NEW DOCTRINE OF REALPOLITIK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

[?] THE MEW DOCTRINE OF REAIPOUTHK A review of 'Great Mistakes of the War/' by Hanson Baldwin. The significance of this book lies not so much in the expose that it presents, but in the way it exem plifies a revolution that has occurred in the dominant trends of American political thinking. In this case it is a 'looking back' in terms of this revolution. The in creasing fascination which the doc trine of Realpolitik has come to hold in the American political vo cabulary and the extent to which discussion of international politics, by all segments of opinion, is couched in terms of a naked struggle for power, is something new. Large-mouthed platitudes about the glories of democratic living still have a prominent place in public utterance, but discussion of policy is made more and more in terms of Realpolitik. Partly no ( doubt, this is a derivative from Communist pressure and the Marvxist view of politics. The view that history is dominated by in evitable irreconcilable class con flic...

SKIING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

[?] The recent fall of snow on the ? I mountains, which the more lynx- I eyed among you may have seen, has I sent students rushing to the ski I shops of the various capital cities I in search of suitable but alsa, very I expensive equipment. I Three students drove up . to Mt. . Franklin and inspected the ski runs i\ and report that there are four good runs on Mt. Franklin, short by Continental standards, but adequate for beginners. The new ski-jump on Ginini should give the experts a chance to show their mettle, particularly as one is expected to leap over a road before landing. See ; you on the snow! MUSH.

THE LORDS ASSEMBLE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 May 1951

[?] A fully attended inaugural meeting of the new S.R.C. was held on 16th April. Dr. Murray Todd was present as representa tive for the College Council. Mr. R. Fernandez, the incoming Treasurer, reported that the books ' of account were in a chaotic con dition and that as a result, it was impossible to ascertain the exact .financial position. It was resolved that the books be returned to the outgoing treasurer with the re quest that they be placed in order and audited as provided 03^ the * Constitution, The question of re-affiliation with N.A.A.U.S. was raised and although there was considerable r support for the proposal it was decided to wait until the actual I financial standing of S.R.C. was , quite clear. This matter will there fore be placed on the agenda for the next Council meeting. A de cision on whether or not to par v ticipate in the Inter-Varsity de «?? bates was similarly deferred pen ding inquiries as to likely support. Quite an important decision was made concerning '...

1950-51 CRICKET SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1951

1950-51 CRICKET SEASON In the 1949-1950 season, the University College Cricket Club entered teams in the Second and Sub-district Grades of the A.C.T. competitions. The Second Grade Eleven had an excellent season, and finished a close second to the un defeated Ainslie side. For« the 1950-1951 season, we again applied to the A.C.T. Cricket Association for admission to the same two grades, but the Association, in pursuance of its expressed policy of encouraging 'district' cricket, refused to admit a College team to Second Grade. The Club was therefore reduced to a Sub-district team only. We regret that the Association has adopted this attitude, and hope that next season will see the Col lege teams reinstated to the higher grades. One result of the decision was that whilst several strong play ers left us to play with district clubs, some Second Grade players stayed with the College team, and a very strong side was entered in Sub-district. Out of 10 matches played, the College won five a...

Lukewarm for Linklater "LOVE IN ALBANIA" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1951

Lukewarm for Linklater 'LOVE IN ALBANIA' Eric Linklater has always been a rather enigmatic character, often idealistic, often cynical, and usually confused. 'Love in Al bania', the latest Repertory offer ing, which has finally displaced 'A Phoenix Too Frequent,' is typical. My main quarrel was not with the cast, who were all pretty work manlike, but with the play, al though it too had its moments. The plot concerns an American Mili tary Police Sergeant ( played by Albert Johnson), who suspects that his only daughter, a partisan in Albania, has been the victim of foul play, and an arrogant, bump tious writer-cum-poet whom the sergeant suspects has 'stopped his daughter 's olock.' The action takes place in the flat of the Lawns, an English civil servant and his wife (played by Bill Willoughby and Nancy Gleeson White respec tively). A servant (Dorothy More), whom I thought was an aunt until I looked at the pro gramme two days later, is also on hand. After a great deal of windy dialogue...

THE BALLARD OF STENKAH RAZIN — Traditional [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1951

THE BALLARD OF STENKAH RAZIN — Traditional I From behind a little Island, To the Volga's broad expanse, Where the wavelets play As on an inland sea, Swept a knife-stemmed rakish Cossack ship For piracy renowned, And from bow to rudder painted garishly. On the deck sat Stenkah Razin In the fullness of his pride, With his belly full of Vodka And his arm around his bride. At his back he hears a murmur, Growing loud and yet more loud, And he hears accusing voices i Rising angry from the crowd. ; 'Just one night it took this 'hero', Noble King of Volga 's flood, To be robbed of all his manhood, And forget his Cossack blood!' As these taunts came through the hazy, Semi-darkness of his mind, Held he fiercely to his lady, And his teeth began to grind. Then his eyebrows came together, And his eyes shone blood and fire, As a battle raged within, between His men and his desire. Then resolved, lie stood before them ' I'll surrender all !' quoth he ; And his voice roared mighty thunder, Like the...
