STUDENTS AIMS QUESTIONED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
STUDENTS AIMS QUESTIONED The efforts of Student Action in Melbourne during the recent Federal election campaign were directed to ' making the White Australian Policy an election issue', in other words to bring to the forefront the state of Australia's present immi gration laws and to promote some re-thinking of the issues they involve . By and large it seems they failed. The students succeeded only in drawing attention to themselves and the raison d'etre of Student Action was ignored. The Student Action leaders have not revealed whether they regard this apathy as the product of a convinced commitment to the White Australia Policy in the minds of Australians, or whether this is apathy in its true sense and the Aus tralian people have ceased to care whether we keep Aus tralia white or not. If the latter, then Student Action is ready for dissolution here and now, especially if the assumption is correct that they act from higher motives than that of self-preservation. Is the latter reas...
RE-THINKING WHITE AUSTRALIA DOWNER DOWN UNDER IN VICTORIA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
RE-THINKING WHITE AUSTRALIA DOWNER DOWN UNDER IN VICTORIA Several hundred students from Melbourne and Monash Universities, Royal Melbourne Institute of Tech nology/ and Swinburne Technical College were described by Mr. Menzies as 'yahoos', 'larrikins' and 'impostors', during attempts to make the White Australia Policy an election issue. Students were members of 'Student Action', an in formal body set up for the sole purpose of forcing be fore the electors the fact that both major political parties are in fundamental agree ment on Australia's present immigration laws. 'Student Action' is controlled by a committee elected from the student population of Mel bourne and Monash. Throughout the study vaca tion and during the exams plans were formulated in Melbourne University Union House. The general outline of Stu dent Action action during the election campaign, such as questions at rallies, posters, chanting and so on is fairly common knowledge. How ever, several incidents stand out. The...
NEW STUDENTS KNOWN TO AUTHORITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 February 1962
NEW STUDENTS KNOWN TO AUTHORITIES Quite a number of the students around this Univers ity have records of one kind or another on files in the citv Several of the freshers are preceded by more satis factory gen. Each of the ten individuals has secured one of the new National Under graduate Scholarship award ed by the A.N.U. Their arrival and subse quent progress will be ob served with particular interest not only by the administra tion but by a considerable number of the students. Over the past few years and partic ularly since the demise of the C.U.C., the University authorities have appeared increasingly anfcious to im prove the calibre of the annual intake of new stu dents. With the N.U.S. holders this year, the trend appears more markedly. Of the ten successful can didates, four are from New South Wales, four from Queensland, one from Vic toria, and one from Western Australia. Perhaps all sur mises one might make on the basis of this information would be incorrect, but it has its ...
Yet another frontier yields to science [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
Yet another frontier yields to science Last year Woroni published the chemical analy sis of woman. Intensive research has yielded fresh data, and Woroni is now able to publish this com plete analysis of one of the most abundant ele ments of the Earth's crust. SYMBOL: Wo ATOMIC WEIGHT: 124. but isotopes are known covering a wide range of weights. OCCURRENCE: Occurs wherever man is found, and seldom in a free state. COLOUR: Buff, but tends to assume a rosy tint when discovered in a natural state. Turns green in the presence of more crystalline specimens. SMELL: Usually appealing. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES: Generally rounded in form, soft to touch, but hardens when handled carelessly. Boils at nothing and may freeze at any moment. Can be melted with proper treatment, but rarely yields to pressure. Remarkably inert when frozen. Very volatile when hit. Most allotropes are incredibly dense, and careful examination shows them to be iso morphous. Rarely obeys Law of Constant Pro portions. Very ra...

RATTIGAN'S TECHNICOLOR MURK THRILLS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
RATTIGAN'S TECHNICOLOR MURK THRILLS JOHN WOODROW on Rattigan's Separate Tables . The Advent of the Angry Young Man on the English dramatic scene caused a revaluation on the part of both writers and audience of the fare which had previously been served up. The drama of the post war years was approached more critically, and it was, in the main, found wanting. Critics of the Angry Young Man have com plained that all they had done in their quest for 'life' or realism or whatever was to move the drama out of the drawing room into the kitchen — or even fur ther. There can be little doubt, however, that the 'drawing room' drama had outlived its effectiveness; its values were too 'nice,' and out of key with the temper of the 'fifties. Nevertheless it was not only the Angry Young Men who recognised the weak ness of this school of drama. Other playwrights preferred to work more soberly for readjustment of attitudes within the same conventions, rather than angrily to overthrow the whole system...
Bible Basher Banters Baptists-Wise [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
Bible Basher Banters Baptist^ Wise Yesterday I met a traveller from an antique land who asked me if I knew the old story about John the Baptist, Salome and that gang. I told him that 1 was acquainted with the facts as they are found in the Bible. He sort of smiled and, leaning back in his bed, told me that I had it wrong. ? 'Man,' he said, 'they lost everything in the translation. In the original Hebrew it comes out something like this: 'This John the Baptist was no wishy-washy milk-drinking religious fanatic. Like, man, he was a real angry, and had been gaoled many times for playing the cool on the monarchial system. 'When he hit a fallow period he would up pad and take it on the road, winging it far into the desert, where he could watch the stars at night, all alone, and feel companionship for their soli tude and their feeble light. 'Like then, dad, as the sun also rises, he would back into the big city and take up in his old pad, a backroom of 'Yeheudi's Catacomb.' When he made i...
Think big, said Fraser—but it was still a dull meeting [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
Think big9 said Fra&er -— but it was still a dull meeting We must start thinking bigger ... So said 1961 SRC President Ron Fraser in his lengthy annual re port last week. There was disappointingly little of that particular brand of thinking evident at the Annual General Meeting itself. A small band of members looked on with casual interest. Again, one was treated to the dull, very dull spectacle of would-be limelight seekers who have so much to learn about that art so prized am ong university students every where: The young lawyer on the way up (admittedly), grasping the unique oppor tunity of conducting an argu ment on trivial details of procedure; future (?) poli ticians dampening the eyes of many with appeals to the 'rank-and-file members' . . . and a scientist's scientist of many words — these provided excellent ingredients for a really scintillating student meeting. But no. Frazer's appeal for big thinking went skidding off into limbo. In marked contrast, the remarks in...

Let's look again at Randolph Stow's achievement [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
Let's look again at Randolph Stow's achievement By ISofis Smith It has been suggested that Randolph Stow's book of poems, Act One (1957) and his three novels: 'A Haunted Land' (1956), 'The By stander' (1957) and 'To The Island' (which re ceived the Miles Franklin award in 1958) 'consti- tute a creative achieve ment with which local critics have not yet quite come to terms.' So now that the first gush of enthusiasm has subsided perhaps we are in a better position to make a more sober estimate of this 'mature young writer' who can be spoken of as having written 'nothing less than an Australian Lear!' ' Just what is Stow's achievement? Does it lie merely in his promise or has he already achieved some thing which is well worth reading and 'coming to terms with?' The answer is I think, very definitely Yes, so long as we don't swamp Stow with undeserved extra vagances. His first novel 'A Haunted Land' is an inten sive study of an isolated family held together in en forced isolation on the...
LECTURES A PAIN IN THE NECK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
LECTURES ( A PAIN IN THE HECK I By You Know Who! Lectures have been described as a process i whereby information is transferred from the notes [ of a lecturer to the notes of a group of students i without passing through the minds of either. i I don't know whether this statement is uni- \ formly true; it probably isn't. However in my I opinion it is true to a large extent in the physical! sciences. : : = I Having survived two years of a science course i \ T have come '-to the conclusion that lectures are af =, magnificent method for wasting the time of both! i staff and students and hence the taxpayers' money.] tWhat could be more ridiculous than a lecturer! = reading out his notes at the same time as writings f them on a blackboard while six, 40, or 100 stu-j : dents transcribe them from the blackboard into! | their notes.

THE DECLINE AND FALL OF HOMO APATHETICUS As Confessed Involuntarily to our Reporter. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
THE DECLINE AND FALL OF HOMO APATHETICUS As Confessed Involuntarily to our Reporter. We had induced him to come to the pub with us. It was the first time he had ever been to one with fellow - students (sorry indication indeed of the fellow's apathy!) After a few hours he was spilling out his woes to your receptive reporter. Shortly after that he also spilled out much of the beer we had so generously plied him with. What he had to say would serve as an awful warning to all our greenhorns. (The writer uses this word because he feels it lacks the derogatory connotation of 'fresher'). The writer would like to emphasise the admonitory tone of this talc — a moral ungot is as had as a pun unnoticed and he feels that if gentle nudges are not going to have any effect, a hammer-blow at the outset is the best thing. Well, there we were, Reporter and Apathetic Man. His unfortunate .story began when he matricu lated to this institution, a young, hopeful, chaste Arts student, keen to enjoy the (m...
FROM SYDNEY Pinters 'Caretaker' is set in kitchen [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962
FROM SYDNEY Pinter's 'Caretaker' is set in kitchen In recent months in Sydney there have been a large number of semi public gatherings con cerned with discussing the drama that has been written in the last fifty years. People have spoken on the works of the already familiar Continental drama tists lonesco, Brecht, and Bucket, as well as the more recent works of the British 'kitchen-sink' dramatists, 1 Wesker and Pinter particu larly. The other week, in the Great Hall of the Univer sity of Sydney, Mr. Nor man Marsall gave the first of the 1962 series of Kath leen Robinson Lectures on Drama and Theatre: the topic was 'The Contempor ary British Theatre.' Mr. Marshall is chairman of the drama panel of the British Council, and ad visor to Associated Rcdif fusion, and, one suspects, a firmly entrenched member of the Establishment. He informed us that the most popular piece now being played in London is C. P. Snow's 'The Affair,' and that British theatre owners have a devil of a job making...
