New Australian Kultural Sekshun [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
New Australian Kulfural Sekshun Bearing in mind the fact that I may run afoul of Mr.j Reece's chauvinistic All Australian Students Youth ? League For The Suppressing Of Imported Intellectuals, (otherwise hiding under the pristine innocence of the Bush Week Committee), I have the fortitude to ask that this song be published. (Plagiarised from Sydney | University. I SLASH GO THE L BAYONETS In the middle of the parade ground the old Nasho stands, Grasping his gun in his mean bloody hands, Warlike is his gaze as he charges down the line Ghouling in his frenzy as he shouts: 'Commo swine'. Slash go the bayonets, slash, slash, slash! Chortling with glee as the blood goes splash. Warmongers take in their dollars with delight. Champagne and caviar on Wall Street tonight.

Harvard the best? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
Harvard the best ? 'Is there anything left of Harvard?' many Americans are asking these days, even if only in jest; for President Kennedy has taken so many of his new adminis trators, ambassadors, and aides of all kinds directly from the classrooms of Harvard University into the new Administration, that it would seem that no one is left to teach here. Kennedy himself, like many of his cohors, acquired his bachelor's degree, the lowest of the three academic degrees, at 'Harvard,' as the institution is called for short. But 'there is something left of Harvard,' as I was able to find out myself at first hand — even if about thirty pro fessors from the leaching staff, which, after all, totals four thousand three 'hundred and fifty instructors, did leave for Washington. Indeed, this is why Harvard is more alive to-day than before, as many students and instructors proudly explained to me; they sec a kind of recogni tion of the way of education and the way of life at their alma mater in th...
EDITORIAL COLUMN THOUGHT FOR YOU! [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
EDITORIAL \'p COLUMN THOUGHT FOR YOU! . Yesterday a student said to me: 'There is always the same old balderdash about student apathy in your paper — in fact in all student newspaper'. I thought: 'Is this a symptom that we are empty, bored, weary?' We can't still be the Lost Generation. Where is the fervor which made one man shout 'Twenty-one and nothing done for/eternity' as he smashed his wine glass on the table. Would I do that at the Law Dinner for example? No. But am I apologetic about the fact that I don't do it and yet still feel it?- Do I hate?' No! Do I Jove? No! I just exist. Take a look at yourself. What have you done? Do you care about God or Communism or anything or do you just drift along? Do you get bored when the same old intellectual conversations start? Do you know what you are here for? Do you want to know? THINK! THE EDITOR.
A.N.U. DEBATERS TO GO INTERVARSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
A.N.U. DEBATERS TO GO INTERVARSITY The University Debating Society has entered three teams in the 1961 competi tion of the Australian Capi tal Territory Debating Union — one team a A grade and two in B grade. The competi tion extends from May 15th to July 24th, and members of the finalist teams in A grade are the basis for the A.C.T. team in interstate debating. In A grade the University is doing very well — better than teams in some other activities. After the third debate in a series of five, University tied with the Anglican Men's Movement— aa very strong team — for first place with six points. Ros trum I, Rostrum II and the Junior Chamber of Com merce all have two points, while Rostrum III was forced to withdraw from the com petition. This is really excellent, considering the lack of pre paration — due, of course, to the fantastic pressure of work — : of all University speakers, who are character ised by spontaneous speech and unsteady stance. George Martin, the only person to s...
THEY ARE HUMAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
[?] The three students from U.S.S.R. arrived on July 13 for a one-day ! visit to the national capital, of which they saw all too little, despite ! elaborate S.R.C. preparations. Why? Because their aero ' plane could not land due to fog. Then when it did land, ? the rest of the morning was wiled away at the Russian Embassy. However, despite the in hospitable attitude of the Hall authorities, lunch was eventually obtained for them at the Civic smorgesbord lunch-room. It was here that the members of the escorting party first had any chance to talk to them. It emerged that their leader, the Vice-President of the Russian Students' Union which is the equivalent of N.U.A.U.S., Otjari Choj kejua, spoke a little English, and tended to remain silent all day. He is a post-graduate en gineer of about 30 years of age. The most vociferous of the three, Alexander Lebedev, is a final year history student, and spoke excellent English with more than a slight American twang. This was his third tour, a...

LECTURES COMPULSORY? S.R.C. Deplores Compulsion [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
LECTURES COMPULSORY ? S.R.C. Deplores Compulsion As many students are aware, freedom is a nebulous thing, and though we may think it is in our grasp, we are in fact firmly tied down to the establishment. It has recently been pointed out to the S.R.C, which had received complaints from numbers of students, that any faculty or department can demand that a student attend a certain percentage of lectures in a subject, or be excluded from sitting for his annual examination. What kind of notice is given of this to students con cerned is not yet clear. It seems to be at least theoretically possible that a student could be told of his exclusion from the examination as late as Third Term. Apart from such practical considera tions, the S.R.C, considers that on princ iple, compulsory lecture attendance is un desirable. It must be assumed that the university student is sufficiently discrimin ating and mature to choose for himself his mode of study, and to evaluate the worth of the lectures pres...
Give me that old time religion [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
Gir-e nte that A a General Meeting of students on Thursday, July 20, the following motions were passed : 1. That Uiis meeting deplores the use by the Primate of Australia, Archbishop Gough, of apparently in substantial evidence in making general charges against university teaching, which reflected particularly on certain teachers at Sydney University, and considers that the standing of the Church lias been lessened thereby. 2. That this meeting supports the right and duty of of every academic to present freely any belief which he holds for serious consideration by his students. 3. That this meeting believes that it is only by the give and take of the free competition of ideas that the student can gain an understanding of questions of political and moral values, and form his own opinions. 4. That this meeting believes that Marxism and empirical philosophy are fit subjects for consideration by university students and believes that university students are sufficiently mature to subject...

KINSELLA'S PICTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
KINSELLA'S PICTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY This year (1959), at the beginning of First Term, I paid three brief visits to my old University. I found that the Fisher Library end of the quad rangle is still a most popular corner, for it is the com munal centre for Arts stud ents from all departments. Not only does it give en trance to lecture rooms and cloak rooms and Fisher Lib rary, but the morning sun streams in and invites the boys and girls to rest awhile on the balustrades and on the benches, and there to read and talk. The philoso phy department, of which the senior officer is Professor Stout, has its lecture room here and its offices and its notice-board. At the entrance of the philosophy department, on a special stand, is the notice board of the libertar ian - 'Philosophers,' flank ed on its other side by the big psychology notice board. In the first week of term, this notice-board did no more than advertise the existence of the libertarians. In the second week, it ad vertised thei...
KILL THAT FRESHER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
KILL THAT F|% jsb g& gg ra Kan ag^ 1%. k 4mI Bl 1 E 1% 'Faster, Fresher, run faster'. 'Kill that bloody Fresher'. 'Let's boot-polish the bas lard'. It sounds bad, and possibly drunken — fresher systems always do— to the uninitiated. But maybe the Hall needs a Fresher System. It cer tainly needs something; some thing to give it friendliness, humour, and even a little tradition. But what is a Fresher Sys tem? And why should the freshers at the Hall be sub jected to mental torture, noc turnal exercise, coatings of boot-polish, and answering the telephone? Let's consider Fresher A and Fresher B. Fresher A was captain of his school, the 1st XV, and arrived at University with a maximum leaving pass. He's a bit big-time, in fact. Leave him alone, and he'll be a superior, stuck-up prig for all his undergraduate days. He'll have no respect for most of the senior students, and probably won't even get to know most of them. Now Fresher B is just the opposite. He has little self confiden...
MOCK TRIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961
MOCK TRIAL Mr. Justice O'Donovan, being a typical Judge, kept the court waiting half an hour before taking the trial for murder of the prisoner Findlay, in the students' ' Common Room of the Australian National University. The jury was empanelled by the O-Yez court crier, Whitlam, who swore-in 13 jurors. Crown Prosecutor Lanni gan pointed out that un fortunately the evidence was of the most sordid type, and therefore the Crown had taken the unprecedented step of briefing a woman barrister, Sue Schreirier. P.C. Packer was the first prosecution witness, who said 'the deceased appeared to be dead'. Counsellor Guild, the. de fence, rose to cross-examine the witness wfro made a hasty retreat from the box before such forensic skill. .- Dr. John Nosworthy, a wholesome witness for the prosecution, told the court of his special experience in in specting female bodies. The jury told His Honour to 'hurry up'. At this stage there was an uproar because some specta tors had been unable to get in ...
