Not Cricket [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961

Not Cricket The two cricket bats on display in the Common Room are part of an exhibition de signed to commemorate the great national game of Aus tralia — Cricket. Unfortun ately, the rest of the exhibi tion was reduced to ashes by an overdose of phosphate — more correctly known as superphosphate. Cricket is a game at which all Australians excel, especi ally on Australian pitches, under the big bright Aus tralian sun. Traditionally the game is played by two oppos ing teams each consisting of eleven players, a drink waiter, a manager, a baggage man and innumerable newspaper writers. Recently a new mem ber has crept into cricket teams, he is known as the 'groundsman' or 'curator' depending which team he plays for. The bat on the left-hand side of the table was once known as the 'Magic Bat' as it had a knack of getting in the way of the ball when it was bowled at the wicket. However, it broke down on a recent tour when subjected to a most unfair and hostile attack from a 'chucker', whic...

Letters to the Editor The Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 August 1961

Letters to the Editor The Editor. Dear Sir, In 'Woroni, ' June 26, the word 'WORONI' is men tioned in articles no less than 14 times, and nearly a whole page is taken up talking about A.U.P. being abolished, the Editor at the summit, the right of a Free Press, and Ibrahim Ariff not being able to get a copy of the paper. In the last issue it is not nearly so bad, the word 'WORONI' is only used 10 times, the Editorial is still about the paper, and a de fence is included on Ariff's drivle (Sic!). It seems to me ihat if 'WORONI' would stop talk ing about itself and would include some other topic of conversation, things would be a lot better. 'WORONI' GOTNG TO READ ONE MORE ISSUE I am surprised you can read ?the paper, you obviously can't spell. — Editor. The Editor, 'Woroni'. Sir, — Is one of the ancient and time-honoured traditions of this University to die? To what do I refer? — THE WOMEN v. MEN FOOTBALL MATCH. « Perhaps it could be in cluded in Bush Week, in any case, watch for it gi...

S.R.C. QUOTES ITS POWERS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

S.R.C. QUOTES ITS POWERS After the last two Common Room parties it is time some students knew what power the S.R.C. has with regard to discipline. Below are quoted some of the ''Disciplinary Regulations' of the Students Association: 'It is hereby declared that the Students' Repre sentative Council has power to regulate the conduct of all students within the University precincts. Failure to comply with reasonable directions given by S.R.C. members may lead to disciplinary action being taken by the S.R.C. All social functions held by the S.R.C. such as Balls, Dances, Parties, etc., are entirely within the control of the S.R.C., and any student behaving in an unseemly fashion or refusing to comply with S.R.C. directives, renders himself liable to disciplinary action by the S.R.C.

LATE SPORT NEWS UNDER 18 RUGBY GRAND FINAL LOST UNI. v. HIGH SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

LATE SPORT NEWS UNDER 18 RUGBY GRAND FINAL LOST UNI. v. HIGH SCHOOL Uni began with a try by Farrell after the Grub had created an overlap. High went over soon after, but a penalty by Kaye had Uni ahead at the changeover. In the second half High, having a downhill run, were clearly superior, and ran out winners at^ll-6. Second-rower Whitlam rucked well, while Tony Farrell always looked dan erous in attack. Chris Hig gins was not at home on the wing, and his breakaway play was missed. Prop Gollan sev eral times made hard, forcing runs through the High for wards. On Presentation Night, Jon Craig was presented with the trophy for being the out standing player in the A.C.T. Under 18 competition during .1961. The Firsts qualified for the final of the knock-out Can berra Cup competition by de feating Combined Services 12-3 and Goulburn 6-5. The Goulburn game was played in rain and slush, but the University forwards, with Roger Clement outstanding, managed to hold the strong home pack, and ...

Bush Week in Bungendore [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

Bush Week in Bungendore The township of Bungendore was rudely awakened from its rural slumber on the last day of term, when 30 celebrants of 'Bush Week' made a pilgrimage to the shrine of Australian nationalism. Safely ensconced in the sunny beer garden of the 'Royal,' the party gave aselt entirely to this now annual commemoration. Les, a member of the 'Royal' establishment, made several speeches of welcome, all of a rather similar nature, and announced to George Martin his willingness to work for the republican in dependence of Bungendore. He entirely approved of George's plan to divert the waters of Lake George through the main street of Bungendore to Canberra, and offered his services in the capacity of 'bulldozer.' But Les' capacity had been overreached, and in an at tempt to demolish the hall staircase of the 'Royal' to make way for the floodwat ers, Les cracked his skull more than somewhat and was out for the count. Vale, Les. Sergeant Major Ken John ston led a march to the 'L...

HOCKEY FORLORN HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

HOCKEY I FORLORN HOPE If University A Grade team wins next Saturday against Barton they will qualify for the final four. There is also hope that if the A Reserve team manages to defeat 1 Waratahs next week they may also qualify for the final four. In one of the best matches of the season, University were narrowly defeated by St. Patrick's 3-2 at Turner. University opened the scoring and led at half-time by 2-1. Vic Gleeson and Pete Simp son were the goal-scorers. However, they could not maintain the early grip on the game and St. Patrick's scored . two goals in the last half. This performance was one of the best shown by University this year with fine team-work in the forwards and solid backing-up by the defence. On the same day the B1 'All Stars' defeated Presby terians by 3-2. Bradshaw, playing an inspired game, scored two goals with Bob Arthur also scoring one. Al though it may sound con ceited, we should have won by a greater margin, having previously beaten this team by 6-2. Pe...

PYROMANIACS IN THE LIBRARY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

PYROMANIACS IN THE LIBRARY According to reliable re ports from Mr. L. Murray, (he was there) a dangerous conflagration occurred in the Law Library on Monday, August 7. Despite the right of long user acquiredby many smok ing Law students, a cigarette was not the cause, but an oil heater discovered it had an affinity with an ICBM or a sputnik and rumbled alarm ingly, belching black moke but not taking off (presum ably it was of American origin pace Jack K). Mr. Murray who was the sole student there, slumber ing quietly in the corner, his head cradled by 'Arson for the Amateur' was quickly awakened by the noise and the sight of many hide bound volumes turning black. He summoned Mr. Douglas Cater, who wears no insignia on his uniform but who must be a mechanical engineer at least judging by his efforts to 'qualm' the monster with a wrench. We do not know where Mr. Cater was when he was so hurriedly summon ed, but we can guess. Together with Mr. Murray he ultimately made the mon ster dor...

NO REEFERS IN LIBRARY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

NO REEFERS IN LIBRARY On a Sunday afternoon some weeks ago now, a stu dent let himself into the Law Library (in legal) fashion, through the door), to fuv'd more smoke than usual, com ing this time from one of the two oil heaters. Some oil lying around too, as if a fire needed encouragement to con sume light fibro walls and ceilings and tons of paper. Disaster was averted. Our local fire authorities are concerned that it may not be so next time. trj order to avoid such em barrassing things as charred bodies (and to library staff, even more distressing, charred books), students are requested to avoid all activities that may cause a conflagration — this primarily means: PLEASE DO NOT SMOKE cigarettes, cigars, reefers, etc., while in the library. You may burn. Former S.R.C. Pre'sident, Mr. Peter Ryan, came to realise last year that the NO SMOKING ban is not yet an administrative fad. A little thought ord your part may lead you to a similar realisa tion. SHIRLEY JESSOP.

Was France The One? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

Was France I The One? I It appears that the country which I bears the most suspicion when one I inquires whether any particular country H brought on the 1914-18 War is, France. ? The events of the chaotic pre-war months of June-July, 1914, played into France's hands. France's role during these days is impossible to assess accurately because she has always refused to publish the documents in her possession which show it. This attitude is in striking contrast to what the other nations involved have since done — each has published the documents in its possession tracing the ori Once can guess what France did. It is likely that she gave Russia certain as surances in July. It was not for nothing that France alone among the great powers had been making large and quix otic loans to Russia since the turn of the century. The French had never accepted the loss of the provinces of Alsace-Lorraine in 1871, when Bismarck's troops had entered Paris. Poincare, the President of France when war was ...

EDITORIAL r COLUMN Our Last Effort - Ave atque Vale. Hail to Third Term and fare well to WORONI. In accordance with the dictates of reason, the /Editor -has published the last issue of WORONI, in order to allow his now depleted staff time to study.

MILLER'S "MISFITS" MISFIRES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961

MILLER'S 'MISFITS' MISFIRES Many better films than the John Huston produc tion of Arthur Miller's 'The Misfits' have not been reviewed in this paper, but I feel that it deserves attention for a number of reasons. The principal one is that as. a book-screenplay it received consider able acclaim, but as a film it was at times embarrass ing. Why this failure to translate to the screen a book that was written not only for the screen but in a style meant to give in words the effect of a film? The main reason, I think, is to be found in Miller's pre-occupations, and the sort of characters he has always chosen as protagonists. Miller's approach to life is one of great sympathy for ordinary people, and his characters are charged* with passion. But the judgments on them that he makes are extremely complex, as are the motivations of his char acters. Because of this very dramatic heightening of char acter, the complexity of people whose lives outwardly appear ordinary, he is com pelled to find...
