Inter-varsity Debating Festival 1962 [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

Inter-varsity Debating Festival 1962 Queensland University was host to tlie 1962 De bating Festival. The A.N.U. team (Jean-Pierre Keet, Michael Harrington and Dawn Kohlhag'en ) set off for the 'Sunshine State' to he greeted hy rain. In smt-- -»l --nlnrr«-d formal dress, the repre sentatives of southern uni versities managed to pre serve the distinctive un kempt appearance of col lar, tie and nionograinnicd briefcase. A.N.U. were the winners of the first ; round of debates. Michael Harrington shining the brightest with his exposi tion on the 'Zen-Marxisl concept of the VOL' which has since gone down in debating history. j The final was left to Syd ney and Melbourne. Syd ney narrowly won. The annual general meeting of the Debating Festival vehemently got to work on the N.U.A.U.S. and demanded that its 'alleged interest in pro moting inter-varsity rela tions (especially debat ing)' should be put to .the test. Money, of course, was the root of this evil; Sydney had visions of the 1965 D...

AUST. RULES PREMIERS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

flUST. RULES PREMIERS This year, for the first time in the history of Australian Rules in Canberra, University were admitted to the competi tion. To celebrate their entry, the Students took off the pennant in the 'B' Grade. Early in the season, the new Club was beset by ad ministrative difficulties, lack of training facilities and a certain amount of antagonism from established clubs. How ever, under ex-Canberra representative Ian Grigg as coach, the team son settled down to a sturdy combina tion. Evidence of the im provement is the fact that University won only three of the first eight 'home-and- home' matches, but won all the last six. When there was some doubt towards the end of these matches that University would make the final four, the team played in most de termined fashion. In the last four games, they kicked 63 goals to their opponents' six. The first semi-final was played against Turner at Northbourne Oval. From the first bounce, the Students went in harder and more skil f...

SPORTS UNION MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

SPORTS UNION MEETING Despite the fact that the exams are almost on us, your humble reporter, determined that no one should have an opportunity to accuse him of being APATHETIC, threw an evening's study to the winds in order to demon strate his patriotism to the world by attending the Special General Meeting of the Sports Union. The meeting opened with an edifying discussion to set up a set of by-laws for the award of 'blues'. In order to give the necessary atten tion to such an important and delicate matter the meet ing resolved itself into com mittee. Veteran statesman Julian Hartley brought the attention of the meeting to the extremely important question of whether a per son who is awarded more than one 'blue' should be given more than one blazer. Naturally, such an important question occupied the meet ing for a considerable time. Members of the Sports Union who pay their annual £2 will be pleased to hear that economy won. Eventually it appeared that a set of by-laws which would s...

Dinner With The Family [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

Dinner With The Family In a recent iconoclastic article, noted American critic Edmund Wilson has said of Anouilh's plays that they are 'a kind of fraudulent clever ness. containing forced whimsy, implausible impro vised shocks, and empty tirades that pretend to mean something ... Anouilh has made an industry of it, and now ilia jjiaya aic ueing uunc everywhere. One of the chief problems of modern life is to, avoid seeing Anouilh's plays.'' — New Yorker, 2/6/62). Jean Anouilh has been an active playwright for thirty! years, the last fifteen of which — have seen some changes in Anouilh's writing. These later plays are not so easily cate gorised as those written in the' years 1931-47. The earlier plays are of two types: the; 'pieces noires,' plays which are pessimistic or realistic and have tragic endings; and I the 'pieces roses,' plays r, . which are idealistic or senti-: mental and have happy end-, ings. Common to both is, satirical observation of con-! temporary society, and under-...

NEW LIGHT ON BRUCE HALL ADMISSIONS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

NEW LIGHT ON BRUCE HALL ADMISSIONS '' At the A.G.M. of the Students' Association, held early this year, a motion was passed instructing the S.R.C. to request that the University Council set up L a committee to consider applications for places in University-provided accom modation. The text of this motion was then forwarded by the S.R.C. to the Registrar of the School. A short time later the S.R.C. was provided with the Hall of Residence Disciplinary Rules which had already been passed by Council. The S.R.C. made a number of recommendations on these rules including a recommendation that a definite policy for selecting students to be given places in University provided accommodation. A summary of the general policy followed is set out below: 1. The order of priority for allocation of places in Bruce Hall is, first and foremost, on' academic grounds. ?

THE EDITOR, "WORONI". [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

THE EDITOR, 'WORONI'. Dear Sir, — The Committee of the University Theatre Group wishes to express its disappointment, that so few students attended a perform ance of 'Arms and the Man' Thanks to extensive advertis ing, we had quite good houses uui vui pi iiiitti y uuii i.w entertain the general public. We are a University Group which should cater for stu dent audiences. (It was for this reason that we selected a play in the English Depart ment's syllabus). If students do not come to our produc tions then there seems little point in the Theatre Group struggling to survive. It might as well join the ranks of other defunct University societies. Yours faithfully, Secretary, Uni.Theatre Group.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL This year is the first year that a women's basketball club has been in existence at the A.N.U. Because of this we did not get as much sup port as we could hope for, but we still have had a very successful year. We entered two teams in the Saturday competition — the Firsts in A grade and the Seconds in A Reserve. The Seconds had a very unstable team until the end of the season, and as a result did not prove their worth until the last few matches of the second round. The Firsts, however, have had a much more successful eason, ending up second at the end of the round. (Finals still to be played at the time of writing). Three players from the Firsts were also chosen to play for A.C.T. in the Country Week Championships in Sydney. The main event of the year, however, was our trip to Mel bourne for Intervarsity. We set off confidently, little real ising what we had in store for us. After being soundly beaten (46-8) by Melbourne (who went on to win) on the first day, we r...

Dramatic walk-out from Student Conference [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 October 1962

Dramatic walk-out from Student Conference [This article has been compiled from the preliminary report on the Tenth International Student Conference, prepared by Australian delegates Ian Ernest and Gregg Harvey, and presented to the August Council Meeting of N.U.A.U.S. Bob McDonald, Local N.U.A.U.S. Secretar University of Sydney.] The 10th International Stu dent Conference, held at Laval University, Quebec, Canada from June 27 to July 8, this year, was one of the most dramatic international student meetings ever, and reached a climax in the walkout of some thirty delegates. The trouble started with the Credentials Committee which examines the claims of national student organisations to being genuinely representa tive. Following a caucus meeting of the Asian nations, Australia found itself a mem ber of this critical committee, together with France, Ceylon, Britain, Paraguay, Sweden and West Africa. This Credentials Committee ploughed through the creden tials of some 60 National Unions...

JUST LOOKING THANKS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

JUST LOOKING THANKS With no plan in mind, I drifted through North Western Victoria and the Southern Riverina during the vacation. There were adventures many and varied, but after due con eSflovatiAn I rlarirlorl 4a restrict myself to a mere description of the scenic beauties of some of the towns through which I passed. Albury kicked up its heels for the New Year. Crowds roamed the streets; sang, shouted and threw rice and balloons. The highlight of that night was a fire in the 'Globe' Hotel and the entertainment offered by the antics of firemen. Corowa was careful to contain nothing of in terest and nothing unusual. On its outskirts, the larger land holders have built- themselves homesteads and mansions which take their inspiration from Mel bourne and ultimately from England. The New Year was celebrated with the : dignified tradition of a regatta on. the river. The. passive enjoyment of. watching the sweating, straining oarsmen was marred by. intense heat and having nowhere to sit d...

SAG COLUMN A pathetic Rhyme [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

| SAG i; {COLUMN! A pathetic Rhyme The activist in awareness Knows of life's awareness But the student in apathy Knows of life's calmness. Well, we have only been back a short while, and one might think that your SAG writer would havi- little to comment on. How wrong, apatheists have been apathetic in force. Apathy in Public Places The most notable victory of SAG in recent times was the ab sence of ANUS representation in the jubilee procession. ANUS could have at least provided a gaggle of corduroyed students to march in front of armed forces. Again. ANUS was deficient in providing some sort of distinctive welcome for the Duke and his wife. SAG in Sport Can SAG claim credit for the recent turn up at the meeting of the Sports Union, and 'especial- ly for the solid Bruce Hall block appointment to the executive? Some Lennoxians hinted at an activist Bruce Hall plot. (Any way, examine the list of execu tives. and make up your own mind.) Apathetic Cribbing People who have victories or de...
