This year — A Prosh [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
This year - A Prosh The A.N.U. hopes this year to follow an age-old tradition among universities and hold a PROSH. This will take the form of floats and stunts in Civic one Satur day morning towards the end u; iwj.ni. Help in the form of IDEAS, LABOUR and EQUIPMENT is needed. A prize will be offered for the best idea for a float. This, if suitable, could take the form, of nine gallons of spirituous encouragement. It is hoped that clubs and societies as well as individuals will come forward and organise floats and stunts. Any person willing to help in any respect will be most welcome. People, who can provide or procure trucks or vintage carsf etc., will be greatly appreciated.

The S.R.C. Rags Commit tee is in control of PROSH and. will give financial assist ance for floats...
DR. BURTON'S NEUTRALISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
DR. BURTON'S NEUTRALISM Readers of the Bulletin were recently amused to read a comment on the award of a Rockefeller Foundation grant of £2,678 to the A.N.U., on which Dr. John Burton (External Affairs Secretary, 1947-1950) will study the non alignment policies. The Bulletin said that 'Dr. Burton, who thinks that Aus tralia should not, for example, be aligned with the U.S. in Asia is now in the odd posi tion of accepting American gold — provided by ultra capitalist sources like the Rockefellers — to prove, pre sumably, just that point.' Dr. Burton's former Can berra interest passes mean while into the hands of Angus and Robertsons Ltd., of Sydney.

NUAUS BENEFITS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
NUAUS BENEFITS . The University of New South Wales has granted £400 to N.U.A.U.S. towards Iheir work in international student affairs. This mag nificent gesture by Professor Baxter and his Council will do much towards assisting the Union in its international work and will be used primar ily to bring overseas student delegations to Australia. N.U.A.U.S. considers that the visits of students to Aus tralia from overseas will lead to a better understanding of our country and will be of in estimable value to our own students. Such visits, particu larly by students from the less developed countries, are limited by shortage of funds and it is hoped that this grant by the University of New South Wales will encourage, the other universities to sup port N.U.A.U.S. ' in then endeavours to further intci national student co-operatic...
Three savage eyes on the human scene [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
Three savage eyes on the human scene Do many people nowadays read the savagely satirical novels of Sinclair Lewis? Probably not. The very content of his work — attacks on particular American social evils in the first three decades of this century — may mean that his writings have already become objects of historical interest only. We who delight in the banderillas which Kingslcy Amis, Mort Sahi, and A. D. Hope thrust into the withers of society may have little time to devote to an American novelist whose writings, as do all satirical writings not of the first rank, seem very much restricted to the period in which he wrote. But it would be a mistake to ignore Lewis completely; three of his novels may be read today for sheer enjoyment, the enjoyment that may be gained from a man of letters who is a magnificent hater. For this is just what Lewis is — a novelist who saw and hated the irresistible destructive power of the great American passion for smugness, fixity, and standardisation. ...
Dr. Suttor predicts that Christians will re-unite [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
i I Dr. Suitor predicts that f Christians will re-unite j At the May monthly meeting of the A.N.U. New ' man Society , Dr. T. L. Snttor gave a talk on Christian | Reunion. For a summary of his talk, see beloiv. .j Much is being said at present on Christian re ' union — Father Smith's article in the last Prospect and }. D. McCaughey's in the present one, issue after issue of the U.S. Catholic World. Now this challenges his tory, which tells of Councils which divide as much as they unite. Father Leeming, the fountain head of this inspiration, himself very deliberately challenges histpry by the title of his book, The Churches and the Church. For iust one hundred years ago, in 1862, the German Catholic historian', Dollinger, issued a book titled The Church and the Churches. He took the forcible reunion of Lutherans by the Prussian Crown (1815-1848), the Evangelical Alliance (London, . 1846), and the Lutheran-Anglican bishopric (1841) as signs of the times. The outcome Was. disappointing...
Was Mamu really a big man? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
Was Marnu really a big man? Mamu was a Gilbert and Ellice Islander or a San van, I forget which. Across his chest were ugly scars which he had got scrambling through a barb wire entanglement when the Japs were chasing him. Mamu was a war hero and, a bad man. A man who had been in gaol for at tempted murder, a man who beat his woman up every so often in a brutal full-blooded way, the way you beat up a man you don't like. But Mamu liked children — he used to spend hours putting lead into their sea shells, sea shells used, as a substitute for marbles by the under privileged children of the ? Islands. First he would put the lead into a fire until it ? melted and then scooping it out with his knife he would knead it into the shell aperture to give it balance and weight. I was not allowed to see Mamu but you could always sneak out and dash up to the Koro. He was always there and he never had a job. In the words of the white aristocracy he was 'a bad type.' Legends centred around him — he ...
THE LAW SOCIETY Justice Eggleston as dinner guest [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
THE LAW SOCIETY Justice Eggleston as dinner guest The major point of this :? report will concern events to 5 be held in the future. How V ever, there are two past 1 events to which your atten | tion should be drawn. Mr. I O'Connor, a faculty member, | spoke to law students on 'Recidivism'. The talk was well attended and students displayed a great interest in this specific aspect of Criminology. It is hoped that the Society will be able to ? arrange further evenings of this nature during second I term. f The other event deserving mention was the Inter-Varsity 'i Moot held in Sydney during the May vacation. Although a team from the A.N.U. has been to Inter-Varsity Moots but twice, the participants Lance Murray, Terry Higgins and Andre Cirulis, did justice to themselves and to the University. By defeating Western Australia they en tered the semi-finals and were unfortunate in not defeating Adelaide. Next year the Inter-Varsity Moots will be held in Brisbane, where it is hoped the A.N.U...
A QUAKER INVITATION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
AQUAKERINVITATIONt I The discoverer of the atomic theory was \ \ one of the many scientists who have found j \ in the Society of Friends a ? satisfying ex- I \ pression of Christianity.. It did not violate his § \ intellectual integrity, for Quakers believe that \ \ religion is an experiment in living rather than \ jj a code of rules or dogma.

OUR SOCIETY ON TRIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 June 1962
OUR SOCIETY ON TRIAL 'And so, to the end of history, mur der shall breed mur der, always n Hie name of right and honour and peace, until the qods are tired of blood and create a race that ] can understand.' , (Caesar in 'Caesar 1 and Cleopatra' , Act ; IV). Recently, Canberra had the third murder trial of its history; for the first time the accused was con victed and under the archaic law sentenced to death While every right think ing person will sympathise with the victim's family who so suddenly suffered a tragic loss, one should also concurrently cogitate on the question of whether this crime justifies capital punishment being inflicted on the convicted. Generally speaking, this sentence seems to have been received with com placency by the Canberra people. I have heard the following statements being made by intelligent people from various spheres of life, which emphatically demonstrate this general satisfaction: 'He deserves to be hanged'; 'What else could you do with such an ani...

Lost Art of The Ribald [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962
Lost Art of The Ribald In the collections of the old bush songs, basis of Australian literary herit age, there remains a great void. In no collection so far printed, is the reader acquainted with that huge volume of ribald and plain dirty songs and verses which form the real guts of an evanescent litera ture. Douglas Stewart and Nan Keesing in their monumental but non definitive 'Old Bush Songs and Rhymes of Colonial Times' 1957, carefully selected a con siderable number of in dicative pieces. But their collection is typically sex less. Reasons for their re jection of the thousands of really masculine songs are well-known to censorship boards and literary pun dits; but the gap neverthe less is displorable from the point of view of the stu dent who wishes to have a representative collection. But for the connoisseur a new light is dawning. The establishment of a chair of Australian Litera ture coupled with the re cent announcement that censorship will be relaxed on 'Cbsence' publicati...
PROMETHEUS, 1963 [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962
PROMETHEUS, 1963 Again this year because of insufficient interest among the staff and students, no PROMETHEUS, magazine of the A.N.U., was published. At the' present time interest in having a magazine is so low that the S.R.C. doesn't consider it worthwhile setting aside any funds for its production. And rightly so. The S.R.C. is better occupied repairing chairs and tables mangled by the less sophisticated element; paying for clubs to have dinners; recouping losses incurred by travellers to distant places, ! etcetera, etcetera. And this, of course, should alwdys by the function of such a body. To hell with that little bunch of would-be literati who want to spend some of student funds printing a magazine which will only be used by students on vacation as a document of proof of their having 'been to university.; Anyway, some misguiddd people who really think that the literary clique should be allowed to say some thing of value in print, ahe determined to mine the heap in 1963. We have...
THE UNION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962
THE UNION The Students' Union build ing has at long last removec' itself from the realm of idea in the heads of the University authorities and the S.R.C and has at least been com mitted to the stage of pre liminary plans of the siting of rooms. This move has som drawbacks, in that althoug the siting of rooms may hav been started, at the time o writing the site for the build ing has not yet been finalisec However, the prospects an not as dim as they might bi because the plans which havi been produced do show de finite promise that the Unioi Building will be excellent. he S.R.C. raised several major objections to the pre liminary plans and these were accepted without reservation by the Union committee. The architect also treated oui criticism as constructive anc will change his plans accord ingly. THE SQUASH COURTS The squash courts are de finitely with us. The cost to the students will be about £2,000. This money will have to be found by June of next year and thus it will require con...
