HOCKEY: P. Bailey president [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962

HOCKEY: P. Bailey president 'J'HE hockey year commen ced with a small general meeting at which a new com mittee was elected. The President is Peter Bailey who is serving for the second year. Viqe-presidents are Bill Kitchen and Sam Lake. The exhilarating office of secretary is now in the hands of Ross Crichton, with Ian Crick treasurer and A.C.T.H.A. delegates Ron Weir and Bob Arthur. Intermittent practices were held on Turner Oval. These were not outstanding for their attendance, chiefly due to their clashing with lec tures. A rival group of hockey devotees commenced to practice on Acton and they were able to change the practice to Acton. It must be stressed that players should attend practice to make selection an easier task and allow them to gain knowledge of the idiosyn cracies of their fellow play ers. A practice match was ar ranged for Saturday, April 2 with R.M.C. I and II. Two teams played, the first team consisting of a heterogen eous assortment of A and A reserve grade and...

LETTERS The E.U. answers Brewster [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962

LETTERS The E.U. answers Brewster SIR, Due to the miscon ceptions aroused by Mr. Brewster's letter in the last issue of Woroni concerning the Evangelical Union, clarification of a few points is considered necessary. E.U. is a society, for those people who wjsh to know more about the Christian faith. The dis tinction between the beliefs of E.U. (as expressed in the Doctrinal Basis) and the be liefs of S.C.M. is one which exists in all branches of Protestantism. Hence we do not have peculiar beliefs which we force on people; people have these beliefs and then join E.U. which is made up of those who be . lieve these things. If some disagree with these, they do not have to join. E.U. members discuss their be liefs with non-E.U. mem bers and this would not be a university if this did not occur. . We feel that just as the A.L. P. club would not per mit a supporter of the Liberal-Country Party as its President, we need people on the committee who agree with our Doc trinal Basis. Just becau...

Space for twice as many books, nearly four times as many students OUR NEW LIBRARY-IT'S REAL PROBABLY THE FINEST, BUT . . Though the new A.N.U. Library (at right) will pro bably be the finest at any rural Australian University, examination of the plans reveals several anomalies: First, men's toilets situated Ignore the plight of the * student in the basement or lower ground floor. The staff common room features a di:hwasher and showers and refrigerator. Cocktail cabinet optional. The stud ents' approaches are by way : of steps, which means that students in advanced stages of pregnancy ? will be pre vented from using the ' library.

MALAYANS PREFERRED PEOPLE TO PLACES Full programme for undergrad visitors [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962

MALAYANS PREFERRED PEOPLE TO PLACES Full programme for undergrad visitors Eight undergraduates, four from the University of Malaya in Kuala Lum pur, two from the Univer sity of Singapore, and two from Nanyang, the Chin ese University in Singa pore, recently spent two and a half days in Canberra during their nve-week lour or Aus tralian Universities under the auspices of the N.U.A.U.S. It was unfortunate that the visit coincided with the Easter-Anzac Day holiday break, but with this period two days longer than usual, and the stringent demands of such a short tour, it had to be either Hobart or Can berra. They missed seeing Tasmania altogether. Four of the visitors were billeted, two were deposited in Peter Ryan's flat in Con damine Court (the name fas cinated the delegation leader, Rommel Josef, whose name in turn fascinated us— born 1941) and the remaining two were accommodated in Bruce Hall. Bill Roff from the Insti tute of Advanced Studies and Param Singh (in his capacity as vice-...

Two Up should make a profit [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1962

Two Up should make a profit It is likely that' 'Two- Up,' the current revue, will be a financial success. There is a generally pleasing blend of the in gredients which are likely to please Canberra audi ences in greater numbers than the ill-fated but very clever One-Up. Choosing a programme of wider appeal was a wise move at this stage of the development of the univer sity. There is a freshness and, for the most part, an inno cepce in the approach of the players to their task of enter taining audiences whose I tastes are still distinctly sen sitive to the kind of humour which distinguishes most uni versity revues from Sunday School concerts. , Backstage work is very ably handled by Bruce' Mc Laughlan. It is a pity that he was not spared the task of stage management. The items in which he appeared are of a more mature execu tion than anything else in the revue. Big Bad Bob boomed out excellently despite some minor lapses in the timing of '?? light cues. Peter Simpson gives a de light...

A.N.U. STAYERS AT INTER-VARSITY UNION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

A.N.U. STAYERS AT INTER VARSITY UNION The A.N.U.R.U. Club sent a team to Armidale for the Intervarsity Carnival during the vacation. The U.N.E. organisers arranged a number of successful social functions during the week which were well patronised by the 'Can- berra heavies.' We played our first match on the Monday morning against Tasmania. John Archer was elected captain for the trip. We fielded our strongest team for the match but played badly in the first half. However, in the second half we hit back and Arthur Brown scored two good tries. We finally won fairly com fortably, 17-8. Unfortunately from here on a number of our members were troubled by a stomach 'wog'. We played against U.N.E. in the main match on Tuesday. Although out weighed in the forwards by several stone we made U.N.E. fight all the way for points. Although we lost 16-0, we were not disgraced and the crowd were most impressed with our play. Archer and Clement both led the team well, while Davies and Bridge both pl...

STALIN IN THE GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

STALIN IN THE GARDEN By AL1STAIR DAVIDSON It is a tragedy that the recent denunciations of Stalin by the leaders of the U.S.S.R. have been regarded by the West as fate catching up with a tyrant. That he is being paid back in his own coin is perhaps the thought of those who remember the purges of the thirties and the rewriting of history to bring Stalin's somewhat murky past into conformity with his new illlustriousness. This is not so. In the very denunciations, Khrushchev said: 'You will remember that, at the time of the cult of the individual, all the achievements and vic tories of the party were at tributed to one man. Stalin, of course, had great services to the Party and the Com munist movement to his credit and we give him his due.' (Report to 22nd Con gress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union 17. Oct. 1961, p. 75.) Will Not Disappear Stalin will not disappear from Soviet history books nor will the people of the Communist bloc fear to men tion his name. Indeed, his writ...

Hard work, no beer, big decisions at Adelaide editors' conference [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

Hard work, no beer, big decisions at Adelaide editors' conference The first national con ference of the editors of Australian university stu dent newspapers met dur ing the May vacation at the University of Adelaide. Representatives of every student paper in Australia except Semper Floreat of Brisbane were present. All representatives pres ented reports to the confer ence telling of the various problems associated with student journalism. The editors spent many hours in conference in a sincere at tempt to formulate some policy on such problems as censorship, copyright, libel, ' slander and obscenity, the role of the editor in relation to the students and the S.R.C., and free expression of con sidered opinion on matters of controversy. One of the first moves in an invigorating and lively conference was the protest against the dismissal of the editors of Honi Soit, news paper of the University of Sydney. Conference asked the Sydney S.R.C. to state 'whether the reasons given by the Syd...

HOW TERM BEGAN IN UNION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

HOW TERM BEGAN IN UNION Over the first week-end of term the University teams took part in five matches. On Saturday afternoon the lsts played R.M.C. I at North bourne and the 2nds played R.M.C. Ill and IV respect ively at Duntroon. On Sunday afternoon the 2nds played R.M.C. StafT and the Under 18s played Lyneham High. The First Grade match was hard-fought and our win was unexpected but deserved. From the kick-off we pushed deep into R.M.C. territory and held an advantage both in ball possession and terri tory throughout the first half. From one of a number of spirited forward rushes Notaras dived over for a try about 15 yards to the right of the posts. Rollason missed the kick. R.M.C. rallied to score a good, long penalty goal. Then University's forwards, show ing great fire and vigour rushed the ball straight into R.M.C. territory with Star ling scoring a good forward's try. Rollason connected with a good goal. The half-time score was Uni. 8, R.M.C. 3. In the second half R.M.C. pen...

STUDENT EDITORS SACKED The precarious position of editors of university papers has been startingly illustrated by the S.R.C. of Sydney University. As a result of a motion brought before a meeting of the Sydney University S.R.C. at the end of first term, the editors of Honi Soit are out of work. Although evening newspaper reports that such an occurrence has no preced ent were erroneous, the case has aroused considerable in terest in universities around the country. The editors in question, Richard Walsh, an Arts grad uate now reading Med., and Peter Grose, were put on the spot by the editors at the recent Adelaide conference (see article). Their reply was a lengthy one and raises problems of S.R.C. editorial relations and such funda mental issues as freedom of the Press. accumlated antipathy Antipathy seems to have developed over the year be tween the editors of Honi Soit and certain groups in the S.R.C. Although the pre text for their dismissal was in itself trivial, the accumul ate...

Grog and Rain Didn't Help [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

Grog and Rain Didn't Help The annual SCAND com petition was held this year, over the long week-end in Canberra. Teams came from Sydney, University of N.S.W., Armidale and R.M.C. The matches were fortunately interspersed between the rains of the Canberra winter. This year competition was unusual in one resoect for A.N.U. in that it supplied a capable team with plenty of reserves as opposed to the usual hardened dozen or so which annually migrate to Sydney. The first match was on Sat urday afternoon against the University of N.S.W. and re sulted in a 3-1 loss. This loss was mediated by a runaway victory over R.M.C. (9-2). Saturday was spent with a keg, entertaining the other teams. This entertaining may well have had an ulterior motive in reducing the over powering fitness of the other teams. The rnatches on Sunday afternoon were again ones of mixed fortunes. The first match against Sydney was very close but still resulted in a 1-0 loss. The next match resulted in a 3-1 win over Armid...

A.N.U. STUDENTS ARE TYPICALLY BORING, SAYS W.U.S. VISITOR WE HAVE SPOKEN ? 'NO CHANCt 10 tHTlGRATE', says Rickard I The fact that the A.N.U. general common room is inadequate for the purposes of informal stu dent contacts was recently blamed by a visitor from Sydney, as the cause of there being no definable character type developed here as yet. Miss Adrienne Rickard, General Secretary of the Australian branch of the World University Service showed a unique ability to win and lose friends for her cause while on a recent visit to Canberra. She was, on the whole, unimpressed with Can berra students. She is reported to have told a Canberra Times reporter that since the A.N.U. was young and progressing rapid ly the students had had no time 'to develop their own type.' This disastrous state of affairs she attributed to the fact that the environmental conditions at the A.N.U. gave the students 'no chance to integrate.' (C.T., June 9). Adrienne was accommod ated luxuriously in a fiat at Bru...

FALK HAS A GO AT HARRINGTON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962

FALK HAS A GO AT HARRINGTON Surely the ' Superior Science' motto passed the joke stage long ago: are there no voices in this institution better qualified than mine to refute 'the Harrington gang which so far has been given a free hand in its intellectual prostitution? Dismayed, I am beginning to think so. Harrington's own justifica tion for his position takes the usual materialist, utilitar ian line, and considered as such, relative to its own ends, it certainly is irrefut able. Of course, we are all technological aliens, but the Nibelungen of the Physics Building, rather than escap ing from our predicament, be come in fact self-alienated technogolical aliens, and when they go as far as to appropriate to themselves the whole positivist attitude it is time to point out the actual 'negativism'' of their decree. Maybe the analysts have the answers, but I think that the Existentialists (equated to 'humanitarians' or arts students by Harrington) have always been far better ac quainted wi...

I EDITORIAL . . . ' THE local scene seems bright. Though one could ! not fairly say that the A.IM.U. is riding the crest of a wave of enthusiasm, there are clearly discern ible signs that this University is developing some | kind of identity. Recent meetings of the S.R.C. over the alloca tion of grants have had before them adequate evidence that there is new and increasing interest in clubs and societies. Admittedly, in some cases this 'interest' is merely numerical and in some ! clubs membership is prized because of the club T1! — ATT) v. ^ U i , Lay. liic a.L.r. v^iuu, ailfvvcvci., accmo lu uc ao active as its numbers would indicate; yet the A.L.P. publication Crucible seems to be the product of | ; the continued efforts of a zealous few.
