News from Newcastle [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961
News from Newcastle Copy of an analysis of the position at present regarding the * establish ment of a University of Newcastle, presented to the Hon. Mr. E. Wether all, M.L.A. 'As the position . now stands, we feel that the cre ation of a fully autonomous University in Newcastle re quires action by the Govern ment in the form of an Act of Parliament. You, sir, on 15th Novem ber, 1960, when speaking to a motion for autonomy, moved by the Hon. member for Kahibah, Mr. Stewart, said: , ? 'It will be appreciated that the present University establ ishment at Newcastle is a College of the Univer sity of New South Wales. The Government would not interfere in the administra tion of an Autonomous University, or one of its colleges, without first ascer taining the attitude of the governing body of the Uni versity.' , We submit, sir, that the granting of antonomy goes far beyond the question of 'administration' within the present University and its Colleges. In a letter dated 5th May, 1960, rep...
FRESHER SYSTEM THE NEW OLD BARBARISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961
FRESHER SYSTEM THE NEW OLD BARBARISM I have been meaning to write on the subject of a 'Fresher Sysiem' for some time and have finally been prompted to do so by 'Robespierre' in last WORONI. Some have thought that the article was in jest, but it does express a point of view that is held by some people here. The major premise of such a view would seem to be the old levelling one, 'everbody should fit in.' As I under stand it, this is also the pre sent Warden's aim, but the methods of achieving it are far different. The trouble with a fresher system as a means of making people 'fit in' is that it ig nores individuality and is most favoured by those 'sen- iors' Who desire to demon strate their 'superiority' arid have not other way to com mand 'respect.' It is more over, a perpetuation of the schoolboy mentality that de mands that respect be accord ed on account of age, and re gardless of ability or worth. There are, in such a sys tem, a number of strands. One is a hangover from the Publ...
INTER-VARSITY DEBATES FESTIVAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961
INTER-VARSITY I DEBATES I FESTIVALl The Inter-Varsity Debates Festival was held in Melbourne from Monday the 14th to Tuesday the 22nd of August. The Univer sities of New South Wales, New England, Queensland, Sydney, Adelaide, Western Australia, Melbourne, Tasmania, New Zea land and the A.N.U. all sent teams. There was an informal meeting at Norm Fisher's flat when we arrived, and on Monday we were welcomed by Sir George Paton. Later we went to a reception by the Lord Mayor at the Town HaU. ' Unhappy Event Unfortunately, a rather un happy event occurred be tween ^these two functions — we participated in our first debate. , This was 'That Sportsman ship is no Substitute for Victory,' \vith. the A.N.U. in the affirmative against the University of Queensland. G eorge Martin spoke first and also exercised the right of reply, followed by the Don, and Ed. We lost. We never looked like winning, but we did not really dis grace ourselves. Our second debate was on Wednesday the 16th, in the ne...
WILLIAM WESTWOOD ADVENTUROUS RANGER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1961
WILLIAM WESTWOOD ADVENTUROUS RANGER Of all the bushrangers who crossed the Limestone Plains in the lineteenth century, William Westwood (better known as 'Jackey Jackey') probably had the most adventurous history. Unfortunately, we know very little about him. J. H. Heaton's 'Australian Dictionary of Dates and Men of the Time' (1879) and Seorge E. Boxall's 'The Story of Australian Bushranging' are the only sources readily obtainable in Canberra. He is not mentioned in the standard history by Charles White (2 volumes, 1900, 1903), or that sad reflection on public taste, Frank Clune's 'Wild Colonial Boy.' William John (?) West kvood, son of a Kentish farm :r and employed as an er rand boy, was transported [or an apparently trifling but jndefined offence, and arriv ed in Sydney in 1837. Assigned to Mr. Philip Gidley King (grandson of the governor), of Gidleigh, near Lake George, he absconded in 1840 with Paddy Curran, one of the many cut-throats who infested the Main South ern Road.

HORSE PLAY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
HORSE PLAY '/ don't care what the people do , as long as they don't do it in the street and frighten the horses.' So runs the saying attributed to King Edward the Seventh from which Alexander Macdonald drew the title of his recent book ' Don't Frighten The Horses.' ( Lansdowne Press. Alexander Macdonald's weekly column on the back .page of the Sunday Tele graph is familiar .to most, even if they have never actually bothered to read it. It is occasionally well worth the eitort. ror those Who lack the enthusiasm to look up the back issues, and perhaps in order to earn a little cash for a trip to Europe, Mr. Macdonald has seen fit to have some of his better efforts published in book book form. A kind of bed side Macdonald for the ennui-* struck insomaniac who can't afford beside Esquire or Bed time Stories from the Treas ury of Ribaldry (or who thinks Mad a little de classe). For his brainwave Macdonald deserves commendation. 'We need more maniacs,' John O'Grady commented in the introd...
ALL ON A SUMMERS DAY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
ALL on A SUMMERS DAY by BOB SMITH V V It was to be a real historical picnic — with the first busload just alighting, ready to devour, brick by brick the only open-air version of 'Australian convict settlements'. The sole guided tour for the day had just set out when mr. ireninam cnuggea up 10 me kiosk in an old model tourer, quite disturbed that he might have missed out on I some history 'in the raw'. After all, he was something \ of an enthusiasts for delving into newspapers, old diaries ' and fragments, not to mention the pottering around ruins and graves — all this being part of an attempt to make up for the inadequacies of his night school education. * 'Excuse me Ma'am,'' he politely enquired of the girl behind the kiosk counter, 'where ...' 'Just foller the loudspeaker,' was the anticipatory reply, . ( 'yer can't go wrong, if yer just foller the ... ' 'Yes, yes, thank-you Ma'am,' muttered Mr. Trentham, turning to scurry off. Any movement was checked, however, by words which had...

ZEN FOR YOUNG PLAYERS Having tried over and over, during the vacation, to imagine the sound of one hand clapping, one of our staff correspondents discovered that that stuff was all nonsense. Feeling that a little metaphysic ihelps, he urried to this little quote . from Suzuki. It is recom mended that the litle gem be cut out and pasted on a wall where you will, see it often . and draw strength: Therefore, there is in Zen nothing to explain, nothing to teach, that will add to your knowledge.

EDITORIAL COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
EDITORI A L COLUMN To say 'Welcome freshers!' would be somewhat pointless. The fresher system, on which this paper has eaan caiyiq aprniltlpnt. awwi ? «#wi i iv w« ? ? i should teach the fresh men that a general welcome is the prize for graduating from fresher to student. Some people remain freshers in at least one sense for four or five /ears of their university life. The barrage of abuse and degradation usually the stable diet for the fresher, should be and must for effect be self - adiminstered. The aim of it all should be: 'Fresher — Know Thyself!' Much of the over seas universities1 para phernalia which loads the mail room ad dressed to this paper assures us that stu dents throughout the world are a valuable revolutionary force . . . and so on. In theory at least, constructive power is commanded Dy the young and in telligent. Here, in a youthful, rural univers ity the opportunity for the satisfactory release of energy is limited somewhat. A state of inertia is only con cluded b...
PRESIDENTIAL MAIL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
PRESIDENTIAL MAIL Dear President Kennedy, — . : My daughter has asked me to type a letter of appreciation to you in recognition of your efforts to help in the re habilitation of the unfortun ate Freedom Riders. She was a little puzzled that you offered them no aid during the ride itself, but being none too friendly towards people with that kind of initiative myself, I think I can understand your motives. Anyways, your performance over Cuba sh&uld have set her on the right track. For, you see, she is a staunch member of the local branch of the Fidel Castro Club. You just can't win in the good old U.S.A., can you? Yours, Dalton Thrumbo..
Orientation Week Good Time To Start PATTERNS OF PSYCHOSEXUAL INFANTILISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
Orientation Week Good Time To Start PATTERNS OF PSYCHOSEXUAL INFANTILISM 'There comes a time in the affairs ...' No, this is hardly a suitable beginning; but then 'taken at the flood . . . ' certainly does have application (and connota tions) to university life. I still don't like it. Let's try again. University . . . intellectuals . . . must be something there. No . . . been used somewhere before. That's the trouble, it's all been said before. Must think of something though. Orientation Week. Ah — Spirit of the Week, the benefits of student life, balanced life, mustn't neglect academic work, but must take part in extra-curriculas, Orientation Week good time to start: Make friends, enjoy life, go to the dance, but . . . trouble is everybody realises this, it's hardly original. But then Orientation Week really is worth while; good speak ers, something different, sort of thing one will only find at university. This is no good though, I just can't seem to get the idea across. Well, wha...

ORIENTAL STUDIES APPOINTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962

THE THEATRE GROUP [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
THE THEATRE GROUP This year the Theatre Group is beginning its activi ties very early in first term, with 'the Orientation Week Revue. /In other years this has been the responsibility of the S.R.C. as is the main revue at tne end or nrst term. However, it is felt that the work needed for a little revue prevents the S.R.C. from directing their attention to the production of the main revue as early as they would wish. For the first time, the Theatre Group feels that it has sufficient resources to produce this Revue, and it has therefore relieved the S.R.C. of the job. The Group does not pre tend that the Orientation Week Revue contains new scripts, or that it is even a complete show, . but rather that it should be a sample of what University Revue is like, for the benefit of new students. The S.R.C. will have more time and money on its hands for the .main revue, and will be putting on a fullscale show which will probably run for about eight nights. At the end of second term the Theatr...
