COLUMNIST ATTACKED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIMHIIIIIIMIINIIIIIIIIIimillllllllillllllllimilllllllllllllllllllUIIIIIIMIIIIli I COLUMNIST I I ATTACKED j Upon thinking of our columnist's first comments in his perplexing article 'I write as I please,' I think that it is necessary to say a few things. He seems to think that I simply because we are uni versity students we must appeal to the public by con tinually and systematically demanding our rights. Is it essential to make these bids for public admiration or disapproval simply because we are university students? Considering Australian Universities as a whole, one rarely hears of any active and ' responsible student demonstrations against in fringement of their rights. Rather, it is a case of de lighting themselves and the public with various Rag Days. Conference uprising This view is supported in an article in 'The Student' (available, soaked in tea, on the Common Room floor) in which the only article concerning Australia ...
EAST - WEST CLUB FORMED FOREIGN AIDS ASSURED BY DIPLOMATS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
EAST - WEST CLUB FORMED j . FOREB6N JH1BS ASSURED BY DIPLOMATS Foreign Diplomatic Missions in Canberra today warmly welcomed the forma tion of an East West Club — a cultural Organisation — in the Australian National University here. Apart from giving their i sincere blessings, spokesmen and officials of the missions also promised to help the Club achieve its aims. i The East West Club, a ! social, international and cul tural organisation, came to ^ existence through the inspir ; ations of a few enthusiasts who believe in fostering ! better understanding and close international relation ? ships as a means of achiev i ing peace and harmony. When the plan to form this club was first announc ed, it stimulated a great deal of interest among the Aus tralian students in particu lar, and consequently at tempts were then made to get both the Asian and the Australian organisers to gether. Rather unfortunately : owing td lack of publicity some of the Asian students were reluctant to partici pa...
3rd JULY S.R.C. MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
3rd JULY S.R.C. MEETING The Student Executive met again on the 3rd of July to discuss various mat ters. The first item on the agenda was the date for the Second Term Dance, which has been 'tentatively arranged for the first Friday in third term, due to the unavailability of the Hall. Mr. Brewster suggested that it be combined with the Bush Ball. This did not meet with approval. Deadline Posted Then WORONI was dis cussed. Mr. Davidson read a letter he had written to the S.R.C., and asked for a vote of confidence. This was refused as no official complaints about his editor ship had been made. It was suggested that notice of copy deadline be posted throughout the University. This is to be ' done. A motion was put and carried that Canberra. Press Pty: Ltd. be retained for the last three issues of WORONI if the next issue is a success. The editor emphasised that much blame for tardiness of pro duction lay with the student contributors. A further . motion con cerning support ? for the Spa...

WHY NO CHEESES? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
WHY NO CHEESES? ? Mr. Mus went along to a religious meeting. It was a fiery exhortation to toler ance, charity, and on the problems of existence. Mr. Mus interposed, 'Why is the existence of cheeses not as abundant as formerly?' And they shouted at him in indignant wrath: 'Cheeses! What has the Word to do with cheeses?' He shook his head sorrowfully and went his way. (Verily, 'tis difficult to practice what you preach.) La Fontana.
UPPER HOUSES - A LEGISLATIVE ANACHRONISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
UPPER HOUSES - A LEGISLATIVE ANACHRONISM Mr. Don Dunstan, L.I.B., who is the deputy leader of the Opposition in the South Australian House of Assembly, addressed a lunch-time crowd of about 50 at the Arts Building on the subject 'Upper Houses — a Legislative Anach ronism.' | He came straight to the j point by declaring the func f tion of parliament, 'which ; is to represent the people, .f In order to do this only f, one house is needed, as a t second chamber, if demo C cratically elected, would , only mirror the composition '-I of the lower house, thereby becoming pointless. The proposition that in '/ the event of there being I only one house a labour government would pass revolutionary measures, is invalidated by two consid erations: (a) Labour had a majority in both hobses in L N.S.W. for many years, yet T no such legislation ensued; | (b) It is not the prerogative I of any privileged group to hold the government to account, but is that of the people as a whole at tri ennial elect...

A "Hydeing" For Communism [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
A 'Hydeing' For Communism Christianity is the only force which can eil'ective ly combat communism! That was the chief point brought forward by Douglas Hyde in his talk at tlie University towards the end of first term. He spoke of his years as a communist lecturer in London, and pointed out that the communist aims at the breaking down of estab lished society in order to bring about the abolition of capitalism, private property, and the proleteriat. Then he described his en counters with various com munist leaders since his becoming a Roman Catho lic, and leaving the Com munist Party. However, he did not real ly say why he left the Com munist Party, nor did he attempt to explain even in a simple form the goal for which the communist ulti mately aims. Had he done so, it would have undoubt edly been an aid to those of us who had no know ledge of Marxism barring the slogan 'Workers of the World Unite.' Internationalism of Communism A point on which he spent some time was that of establis...

"NOAH" CAST AND REHEARSING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 July 1961
'NOAH' CAST AND REHEARSING The University Theatre Group's production is well under way with rehearsals in full swing and the play rapidly . taking shape. The play, 'Noah' by Andre Obey, is the biblical story of Noah, placed, how ever, in a timeless setting. The characters are modern, and their reactions to the great haDoenings around them are as annlicable to day, with our fear of nuc lear war, as they were in biblical times. We . have cast the play entirely from University students, and we are gather ing up back-stage and front of house staff also from the student body. There is still great need for anyone who is at all interested, even if he or she is only available for one performance. The show is on the last two weekends of term — Fri- day, 28 th July, Saturday 29th, Fridav, 4th August, and Saturday 5 th.

This news put them back into the ) final four in the competition. On June 17 in a scrappy I game they lost 4-1 to Pres byterians, this being the first match Presbyterians have won this year. University previously beat them 2-0. University lacked its former drive and there was a seri ous lack of teamwork. The goal was scored by Geoff Geo but at no stage of the game did the forward line function as a whole. How ever, this defeat did not apply to all grades for in A Reserve Grade they enjoyed their second but greatest win of the season. They convincingly defeated Old Canberrans 7-1, the goal scorers being Ian Crup with a total of four goals, Ross Crichton with thre...

jimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiii^ I HALL I I SURVIVES I 1 BIRTH I NOW BRUCE HALL The Vice - Chancellor, Professor L. G. H. Huxley, announced that the first hall of residence in the School of General Studies is to be known in future as Bruce Hall. The Vice-Chancellor said that the University would be doing honour to itself if the name of the first Chan cellor was perpetuated with in the University by being associated with one of its more important buildings.

MR. MUS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
MR. MUS Mr. Mus went along to the Common Room. Some stu dents were talking animately about sex. One little rodent was describing his exploits with sordid relish. He boasted, saying, 'Sex ? is good for mental hygiene'. Mr. Mus was amused, and went his own way in creativity. (The wise and well-balanced per- . son does not talk of trash). — La Fontana.
WOMEN'S HOCKEY TEAMS ARE SLIPPING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
WOMEN'S HOCKEY TEAMS ARE SLIPPING Due to illnesses, the Firsts have suffered a defeat this round and are now in third place on the ladder. Having defeated Y.C.W. 6-1 ' things looked rosy, but with LIZ REID, JANE W00DR0W and SUE HOWE on the sick list, and only 10 players on me neia, university was no match for Canberra High and went down 6-2. Best players in this match were KATHY WORTHINGTON and KATHY YOUNGMAN. The latter has scored three goals in the last two matches and is easily the most improved player in the side. JANE WOODROW, who scored four goals against Y.C.W., is the top goal scorer. As Can berra High has yet to play the premiers, it is expected that University will be equal second at the end on this round and will move ahead of Canberra High next round. Recently the Seconds have not had a match due to a bye and one game being post poned. Since the third round starts in a fortnight and both teams are assured of a semi-final place, now is the time for a supreme effort — so h...
Mens' hockey team still hopeful [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
Mens' hockey team still hopeful The last two weeks have seen two important losses for A Grade, and a minor come-back in A Reserve and Bl Grades. The A Grade team lost an important match against Old Canberrans by 4-2. Prior to this match these teams were both in the running for fourth place in the competi tion, Uni. just having the edge. The team was up to full strength, but only spasmodic ally did it play as a whole. In common with many other years, we were done 2-0 at half-time, with the hope of an equalising fervent on slaught in the second half. This produced two goals, scored by VIC GLEESON and RON WEIR. At the same time, however, the opponents also scored two goals. At Majura the following week, we met Waratahs. Con scious of having to make a great effort to restore our selves to fourth place, we wer.e narrowly beaten 4-3. The game was fast and hec tic, with Uni. again coming up the second half. The de fence played well most of the time, but in occasional lapses goals were scor...
UNI. FIRSTS WIN LAST THREE GAMES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
UNI FIRSTS WIN LAST THREE GAMES THE UNIVERSITY FIRSTS RUGBY TEAM ARE BACK IIN THE FOOTBALL RUNNING. IF THEY WIN TWO OF THEIR NEXT THREE GAMES THEY WILL MAKE THE FINALS After a mid-season slump, the Firsts are making a de termined bid to reach the semi-finals. The forwards, who had been playing some what lazily, are beginning to recapture more of the vigour and enthusiasm that charac terised their early season per formances. The back line, which considered on individ ual ability, is showing more cohesion and understanding than previously. If this team can get cracking in the last two games before the recess, they will really take some holding from then on. The Reserves are continuing their run and seem assured of a place in the final four. This team has been handi capped throughout the season by the lack of regular players. As a result it has been impossible to develop any resemblance of combina tion, which is vitally import ant if University is to have any hope of housing teams like...
BRICK WALL AT HALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
BRICK WALL AT HALL Last Thursday, July 20, the Warden of Bruce Hall pro mulgated a set of regulations relating to leave of absence from the Hall at nights. These supplanted the old rules that anyone who was going to be out after 11.30 p.m. must sign out, stating the estim ated time ot return. Under the new regulations, a new late leave book was introduced, and it was pro vided that if a member wished to be out of the Hall after 1.30 a.m., he must sign the book before 7.30 p.m. (sub sequently modified to 9 p.m.), stating where he or she was going, and the time of return. A General Meeting of the Junior Common Room was summoned by 41 concerned students for Sunday after noon. The attendance is esti mated at approximately two thirds of the Hall's member ship. Mr. Packard, the Warden, addressed the meeting, ex plaining the working of the regulations and the reasoning behind them. Under severe questioning his reasons emerged as four: 1. The need, in case of family emerging, to be able to ...
