The Schreinof Sheila's Lament [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

The Schreinaf Sheiks lament ? This year for the first time Bruce Hall is invaded for lunch and dinner by 22 young ladies (?) of varying shapes and sizes. All but three of us have one thing in common: we are freshers (or should it be freshettes?). This posed a problem at first as none of us knew quite what we were meant to do or when or where ... The first few days were spent I in traipsing from one building to the other and our shoes were j changed from heels to lower | heels and .then to thongs. A couple of us were, to be seen .raiding shoe shops for a comfort able pair of sandals. Our complaints have changed now. No longer are we moaning about blisters and sore feet, but the fact we have lest so many inches our clothes are too big. Some, of course, view with glee their belts done up on the next hole. Six of lis live over the kitchen and common room. Together we form a rather exclusive set, but dislike the smell of burnt bacon drifting up the stairs any time be tween 1 'p.m.- and 2...

IT COULDN'T HAPPEN HERE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

IT COULDN'T HAPPEN HERE Defenders of our Democratic Way of Life frequntly allude to the freedom of speech and move ment which we enjoy. 'In Com munist China or Russia, they declare informatively, 'you can disappear overnight for even criticising the establishment.' This unthinkable prospect is enough to send the Average Australian rushing to the recruit ing office at the slightest hint of trouble with Communist states. They will perhaps find it sob ering to reflect that a whole family have been committed io a lunatic as\lum for openly criti cising the Royal Family as the\ toured, through and that police who took them there 'refuse to comment'. .

THE AMERICAN CONCEPT OF LIBERAL ARTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

[?] [?] As an American studying in Australia one encoun ters among Australian un dergraduates an interest and almost universal puzzlement as to the sys tem and purpose of American university education. To many Australians the strangest facet of the American system is the idea of the liberal arts education, the belief that a university student should edu cate himself towards far more than his future occupation, even if this should require an extend ed period attending university. The American student is not re quired to decide on his major until after his first year of high er education, or even later, ? al though he may do so years be fore that deadline. Specialisation in many cases does not begin until graduate school, where law, medicine, architecture, divinity and other diciplines are encoun tered for the first time. lii the United States, a lawyer, for ex ample, will first attain a degree at a four year university, usually in a subject such as psychology or American History, whi...

STUDENTS DECIDED NOT TO SECEDE FROM THE UNION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963

[?] [?] CANBERRA. WUP. — By a fairly decisive majority, 49-20, the general meeting of stu deraJs held on Tuesday, March 25th, decided eh©'! to disaffiliate from fibs N.U.A.U.S. [?] Probably the principle factor of the debate was the calmness of the guest speaker for N.U.A.U.S., Mr. Bob McDonald, from Sydney. For oyer ninety minutes he retained his cool ap proach to questions from stu dents. He outlined the case ' against disaffiliation by illustra ting the work already done by the N.U. in the Scholarships, taxation and travel concessions' fields. Then he listed the short term advantages of affiliation , such as N.U. subsidy of inter varsity functions. . Discussion began when Mr. Leaver, the treasurer of the S.R.C., moved for disaffiliation. He stated the fact that of the *£368 granted to N.U., only £120 , was received back by students of 'this University in the form mainly of travel allowances. Mr. McDonald endeavoured to answer this case by justifying the costs of administration wh...

In the few short years of its existence, the A.N.U. School of General Studies has produced a handful of doubt less . well trained graduates in spoken and written Chinese, Jap anese or Indonesian. What has become of them? The realists have continued to M.A. and Ph.D. work with an academic career of degree amassing and perhaps lecturing to follow.

?SfssdfesBt Papers 1st Czechoslovakia A national akiiv of editors of student periodi cals was convened recent ly in Praque by the Czech oslovak Union of Youth (C.S.M.) fo ensure that the papers become effective fools of the Communist education of the studenf collective. During the past year and a half a large number of student periodicals have appeared ic Czechoslovakia. Previously there existed only the 'UniverSita Kar lova', the bi-weekly of students and workers of Charles Univer sity of Prague. The government has re proached the periodicals for having neglected their most im portant Task, namely that of m a k i n g t h e i r contribution towards communist education.
