THE INTERNATIONAL CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963
THE INTERNATIONAL CLUB Last year the International Club's activities were little better than social. The' screening of a prize Indian Film can hardly be claimed to be a star in an academic sense. . However, this lethargy could be excused on the grounds that this was a new club, that apathy was rampant and precedent none.. And so we were in i .vited to a series of soup-sucking;~folk dancing, food i tastina evenings the better to understand our in j . lernational friends. ; Hope has held that this year things would be ! different, but I think the student- body has been be j trayed. The /Orientation Week function was a piti ! able attempt, to give some shine to the club. . .. I ? A diplomat no less.- Well, at least he was a plea sant speaker. However, he took an hour to say that ! we should strive for more understanding; that we | should realise that 'they', the recipients of our I bounty, are making sacrifices too and that 'we should ' I . be more friendly on an International Level. |...
EDITORIAL The Students And N.U.A.U.S. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 April 1963
RP l¥0 fit S AL The Students And N.U.A.U.S. The move 1o disaffiliate from the National Union was defeated quite substantially last Tuesday. Yet one cannot help having second thoughts on the question. There was a, general feeling of unrest amongst the dissenters that was very disquieting. In effect, iU... tkat iKp cmallpr deleaations to iney wcic- aayiuy ;M,~ ?' — ? ? si-- . . - N.U. Congresses were trampled on by the Sydney and Melbourne groups and that their voices were not being heard. They 'were also worried by the apparent lack of interest shown by the administration for this Uni versity,, together with .ihe. fact that affiliation fees were rather high. Some of these arguments are valid up to a point, and that was why I felt slightly uneasy, after the vote was taken. N.U. can help this University in a much more positive way than it has previously done,, and con versely the students of this University can aid the . N.U. by showing greater interest in its affairs.

The 2nd grade side, ?. after gaining top position in the competition slumped badly to ' 5th position. The* main reason for this slump was failure to hold catches. However, the cricket fortunes of the 2nd grade side redeemed itself in its win over Yarralumla. But only a slight chance remains of the team meeting Northbourne in the final. The 3rd grade side have had mixed fortunes following a start- ' ting beginning. This team has suffered more through- the vaca tion than the 2nds and the turn over of players in this team has been enormous. A...

ONE STEP FROM IMMORTALITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
[?] An unknown French warrior sat in the trenches of Ypres in 1916. His platoon commander had been shot; shot by him as a poetic revenge for leading his troop over the ridge almost to the German trenches when the rear support battery had not opened fire as scheduled. Scarcely 10 had returned from that attack; almost all were killed by the French shells. That mor.--.ing the news had come that the remainder of the platoon would attack with the rest of the company at -1800 hours. The charge w.ould be over, the area of ground known .as Frenchman's Ridge — an '? irorir ical illusion to the fate of this platoon. It was probably just as well the attack was going to; be so soon, for before i'Jon'g, some-: one would realise that the; com mander had been shot v by on-5 of his own countrymen, riot by the enemy as supposed. He had not enjoyed killing him. - ? It had seemed a duty to avenge the unnecessary loss of- French blood. . Tonight all- would, be settled. He would . fall for France, perha...

VISITING DAY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
[?] I realised I didn't know very much about Jim after all. He was about forty and had knocked about Australia a lot after his wife had blown through. He was a decent sort of cove, you couldn't help liking him. I could tell he had something on his mind. He was slumped against the bar, staring into his beer. After a while he said: 'You might be able to explain some ihing to me.' I called for another round of ?:??. drinks. : : : ? 'it's about a woman,' he went on. 'Y'see, after I knock off, 1 make a few quid with the truck, carting and - odd jobs round, the hostels and pubs. Well, I was up at , '.

THE ITALIAN AND GERMAN MUSICIANS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
[?] ? Catvoerra bad two clnimber mjistc concerts in April. ' The first was a free concert in Jhe Albeit Hall on April ^ 8th, arran^edby the Arts CouncH ati.1 the Italian - Cultural fti£tUu(e. Caesars Valabrega played fourteen of Bomenico Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas. The only regrettable thing was not the Italian Professor's fault ? Canberra '/ onfy harpsichord couhl not be borrowed for the occasion. It was not until later in the century that the word 'sonata' vot its current meaning; and Scarlatti's sonatas were actually short, two section movements. The music is sparkling and very like the gigues of Bach, his con temporary. In fact though, Scarlatti's fig* nration sounds a lot- more like Mozart than Bach's. Valabrega had the crystal clear technique needed to make the piano a. passable substitute for the harpsir chord. That concert would have succeeded if it made even a few people in the audience aware of Scarlatti's, charms. The second concert was the first produced this year by t...

Mackerras and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
Markftrras and the Svdnev [?] By K. F. Wetlterell Charles Mackerras is a man of many parts. His tour de force is undoubtedly opera, while bis brilliance in orchestral conducting shines forth only in certain fields. This became abundantly clear at the first A. B.C. Cefebrity Concert of Series 2 in the Albert Hall on Thursday, 28th March. The programme consisted of two of the bread-and-butter items of ^ any ? orchestra's .reperf toire — : the- Cpneefto- Nol, 5'in E flat major (the ?''Emper.prVJ by Beethoven, and.
