TILTING AT WINDMILLS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
TILTING AT WINDMILLS Anticipating , that I will probably be accused of assuming what I am at tempting to prove, I state that my aim in this article is to explain as simply as possible, and to the best of my ability, the Catholic vision of life. I do not intend to put forward a rigorous demon stration of the logic of Catholicism. I do not think that a student newspaper should become the arena for the most subtle and rigorous philosophical and theological controversies — however worthy such activ ities are. Hence I entrust these problems to be thrashed out in other medias. In short, I do not apologise for what I shali state, but rather for its presentation. Man's fulfilment, and thus his perfect happiness, can only come through the con templation of a Perfect Being, Which we call God. Now. it can be realised that God exists by our con tact with His material cre ation. However, since by 'God' we should understand the principle of all things, there is no prior source from which God come...

OUR OLD S.R.C. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
OUR OLD S.R.C The Editor has already wished the new S.R.C. good fortune. He must now pay iribute to the outgoing S.R.C. It would be mere pretence to maintain that there has been no friction between the S.R.C. and the Editor. He has, however, always received co-operation on matters such as expenses, printers and other practical problems in curred in the running of a newspaper. When Mr. Ryan was elected, Mr. George Martin,, ex-editor, wrote 'With a solid back ground of service and University life, Peter seems ideally suited to the job.' It was a difficult period .of transition which he handled admirably. Last year we were an affiliate College of Melbourne University. This year we are a University. Last year accommodation was poor. Now we have the Hall. All these changes occurred during his administration and no doubt caused considerable extra work. His recent efforts in the Findlay iffair are indeed commendable. Thank you, Peter. The rest of the S.R.C. probably deserves equal space, h...
A CONCILIAR PANORAMA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 26 June 1961
A CO N C I LIAR PANORAMA This year's S.R.C. is again predominantly composed of sxperienced members from previous councils. All de serve to be reintroduced to the student electorate. The new Kingpin, lawer R. G. Fraser, was a member of the 19;-8 S.R.C. and coopt ed last year on the resig nation of Mary Eccles and Tony May. A 21-year-old, he is characterized by a torecful and multisyllabic mode of speech backed by a keen intellect and a wide spectrum of interests, drama, debating and poli tics. He has not shown any great interest in sport, but as he was a part timer last year he will be aware of the problems of the dichotomous lives of these people, who are too o'ften labelled 'apathetic.' At his inaugurating S.R.C. meet ing he stressed the desir ability of working in har mony and is prepared tc work very hard for students' rights, of which he is rightlj conscious. j Don Brewster, the new T reasurer, has again shown his hard working initiative by taking on this thankless task despite ...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
Lord, what a time of the morning to get up! But at ^ the end of the day it was worth it. The ski trip to Smiggins ;[ was a roaring success de spite the fact that it snowed all dav. A full bus and one jeep of sleeping bag cocoons t covered the slopes at Smig- -s gins mostly with heads in i the snow and skis in the air. Luckily everybody had fill ed up in Cooma at break fast time as lunch was ; usually forgotten by mid- . .! afternoon. Mr. Wal Petterson gave skiing lessons to beginners. This service was arranged . ; by the Ski Club so now we ' know how to start correctly ? even if we still end up with with clothes full of snow. Some skiers showed great proficiency and reached the top of a ski lift without falling off even if they did come down rather more erratically than they went up. All too soon the bus left the chalet and we chuffed off home — entertained by a two man variety show of Jack Wajcman (pronounced j wiseman) and Chris Simon. -, Do you know what Machi- j avelli said in 1...
RULTURAL SEKSHUN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
?CULTURAL SEKSHUN Lately I have been much disturbed by the cruel lack of fine songs for singing — a fact which frustrates the light-hearted faculties of students. To help remedy this, I offer the following songs, which have been plagioris ed. Bobov Devianov. OMSK (Tune: Volga Boatmen) When Serge and I were boys We used to live in Omsk, Where we spent our time Learning to make Bomsk. When Serge and I grew up We went away to Tomsk, Where we spent our time Manufacturing Bomsk. .La-la, la-la-la-la manufac turing Bomsk. When Serge and I were caught They took us to Murmansk, Where we spent our time Fabricating Plansk. When Serge and 1 escaped We hitch-hiked back to Omsk, And blew up all the bur geoisie With our beautiful Bomsk. La-la, la-la-la-la with our beautiful Bomsk. Now Serge is Commissar Of the Soviet of Omsk, And I am Commissar Of the Soviet of Tomsk. But we will not give up Our counter-revolutionary plots, For we are agents of Our exiled comrade Trotsk. La-la, la-la-la-la our exi...
Women's Hockey Teams Well Placed [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
Women's Hockey Teams Well Placed With the second round of the Women's Hockey com petition well under way, both University teams are almost sure of semifinal places. The Firsts, who have ?beaten all but one team, are in second place in their grade. They have lost only two matches, and each of those by only one goal. The Seconds are in third place, and appear sure to reach at least the final. In recent matches, the' Firsts have shown great form. They beat YCW 5-2, Canberra High 4-2, and Evergreens 2-0. In a hard match last week they were beaten 3-2 by Telopea I. University led 2-1, in the second half, after Jane Woodrow and Heather Cartwright had scored. With full time near and Uni trailing 3-2, Kathy Worthington and Jane Woodrow made a brilliant burst down the centre of the field, beating all the opposition defence, only to be robbed of the goal by an erring umpire who blew the final whistle as Kathy netted the ball. The Seconds have mixed brilliant play with poor play. In one aftern...
UNIVERSITY RUGBY DISINTEGRATING Dave voices player's opinions [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
UNIVERSITY RUGBY I DISINTEGRATING Dave voices player's opinions The form of recent weeks indicates a drastic downward trend in both en thusiasm and teamwork. The forwards, reshuffled after an arm injury to Sav Harasymir, are playing liie lessly and it is obvious that even at this stage of the season, some players are not in condition. Alan Ward and Jack Riley are continu ing to inspire the 'big eight' and it is pleasing to observe . Riley's perform ances at lock-forward. He is big and fast and con tinually strives to find that vital break in tight forward play. 'Poppy' Ward is still found at the bottom of most rucks. Tim Clarke on the side of the scrum continues I to play well but I am in clined to think he has lost some of the dash that was clearly evident earlier in the season. Pleased to see Graeme Hargreaves and Ront Ordish run with the Firsts in recent weeks. ! Graeme appears to be fit ter than ever and is playing inspired football. It may be due to the fact that he Dave Funnel...

I WRITE AS I PLEASE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
I WHITE AS I I PLEASE I by Ibrahim Arifl' At last, my fears regard ing the failure of the forma tion of the East West Club are over now, think God. Some keen organisers have finally volunteered to assist in the running of the Club. This is a healthy sign and I am sure within a short space of time we will all be able to see the Club's plans put into action. From what I gather, the East West Club does not aim at overthrowing other existing clubs nor does it aim at competing with them. .It is just anothei club formed to get people together no matter what they are and who they may be. I was talking to an old Canberra resident the othei day when the question ol the formation of this Club came up rather suddenly in the coures of our conver sation. It happened when he was mentioning just how 'friendly' the people were. 'You know something, mate, I have lived in this place for nearly fifteen years now, and apart from exchanging occasional hellos and smiles, some of us even hardly know who a...
EDITORIAL COLUMN Reply to criticism [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
I EDITORIAL I I COLUMN I Reply to criticism Recently the Editor has been the butt of much abuse because WORONI appears at such infrequent intervals. He is now exer cising his right of official reply. First: — What does a newspaper re quire? It requires support from contribu tors, who supply their material, not 'some- time' but on a deadline date. Does Woroni get this? NO! Would you like your newspaper to be an adequate mirror of your opinion or. of the Editor's? I assure you that I could write the whole caboodle in half the time it takes to round up articles. . But then it would be like WORONI of yesteryears, and did you complain then!! A paper also requires freedom from excessive financial weakness. We shall only produce four page issues because that is all the S.R.C. can afford. We would like to produce a newspaper every week but that would cost in the neighbourhood of £1300 a year plus blocks, etc. Your S.R.C. funds in to to would not cover such expense. You say why does the prin...
WHAT PRICE MORALITY? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
WHAT PRICE MORALITY? For the past two thou sand years Western morality has been held in the strangle-hold of the Christ ian religion. Through their gospels we are told what our attitude to sex must be. For these hundreds of years religious teachers have exhorted the. world to de spice premarital inter course; have taught that it is wrong, that the wrath of Judgment will surely uphold the Word, which in Corin thians I Chapter 6, verses 13-19, reads '... Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord . . . Flee fornication ... He that commiteth fornication sin neth against his own body. What? Know ye not your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.' This whole conception demands that we recognise the evilness of fornication. Looked at logically and impartially, fornication can not be regarded as wrong; unadvised yes, in view of its sometimes consequences, but emphatically not evil, filthy or wrong. Impression is one of pleasure Looking at the act itself, the first impression is o...
