Reply to Brown [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
Reply to Brown Dear Sir, If Mr. Brown is to be taken seriously, Australian and English universities should never accept an American student as an undergraduate unless he first at tains a university degree in the U.S. to qualify for admission (due to his 'abysmallv low stan dard of education'). I can only say that I hesitate to agree fully with Mr. Brown. First year courses at the A.N.U. differ only slightly from those of any American univer sity, as shown by the fairly gen eral use of American first year textbooks in Australian univer sities. The difference between the systems is not in what hap pens before University entrance, but in the scope of University studies. ? If a first year schedule for a physics degree consists of two languages, a social science, mathematics and one science course, then it is obvious that the Australian student studying only science and mathematics will soon be well ahead of his American colleague in those two subjects. NON-CREDIT COURSES I cannot agree ...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR... Inadequate Education [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR . . . Inadequate Education While the article on the American concept of Liberal Arts (Woroni 9/4/63) pre sented an excellent rationale of the system, it is perhaps unfortunate that the author chose to place it on such a high plane. The theory is that the student should educate himself towards more than his future occupation, but the sad fact is that a liberal arts course is, not desirable, but essential to bring him up to a reasonable standard of education, particularly so far as the profes sional courses like Law and Medicine are concerned. The reason for this lies in the basic philosophies underlying the education of children in most parts of the United States. In some way it -is thought un democratic to have the more intelligent children singled out. Hence, any class would have to operate at the level of the least able of its members, and bright children must hold themselves back to this standard. When this attitude is coupled with the rather odd idea that s...
Editor's Reply [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
Editor's Reply It would be good, perhaps, if we were to criticise every club and society, but some are below criticism since they, do not aspire to be more than existent and i social. . I When the International Club I was founded, one hoped that, by I its very nature, people of differ- 1 ent colour, culture and creed |, could be fanatical enough to 1 raise meaningful issues. I However, we have folk danc- § ing and food tasting. We have I prize films. We have films on the I ancient footpaths of Pakistan. | We have diplomats to address us. i We have very quickly sunk to the social slime whence the first signs of life crawled some time last year. ; Rather than attack the Orien- \ tation Week speaker in pur edit- j- orial, we preferred to identify i; the Club's policies with the im- X port of his speech. You do i us \ unjust criticism when you say | we did not hear the talk. \ He did say 'the world cannot [ exist half slave, half free, half \ hungry, half fed', he also offered f a solut...
International Club [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
Internationa! Club Dear Sir, While it is your prerogative to level criticism when you feel it ?to be necessary, I cannot help but feel that you were' guilty of a certain irresponsibility in your editorial attack on the Inter national Club (9/4/63). Your criticism was peurile, and for the most part illinform ed. You may have your doubts as to the value of the award winning film 'Two Acres of Land', but your criticism rather suggests ignorance on your part of both conditions in India and the aims of the club, one of which is to aid the exchange of information about conditions in other countries. Your vicious attack on the Orientation Week speaker was in exceedingly bad taste. When a busy man with con siderable experience in his field gives up his own time to address a club, at that club's invitation, it is hardly fair that he should receive such a blasting. At least you could have taken the trouble to attend the function and listen to what he had to say; then you would not have missed...

ARMAMENT AND DISARMAMENT PEACE FRONT REVISITED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
rAHMAMENT AN© DISARMAMENT The United Nations F.A.O. Campaign on 'world hunger' has focussed attention on one of the most depressing facts of our day and age: we spend far more on armaments than we do on the urgent problem of alleviating poverty and misery. This being an established fact, it brooks no argument that the world must seek, and go on seeking, a solution to the prob lems of world tension from which derives the need for ex pensive systems of defence. Whilst talks continue, hope re mains that the ultimate solution will be found and peace con summated. But, let us give no support to the starry-eyed ideal ist or worse, the pervicious propagandist who proposes uni lateral disarmament, nuclear or conventional, as the grand ges ture of peace. EASY PREY All that such a policy prom ises, in reality, is that our coun try will be an easy prey for those powers whose predatory instincts and conquests have been documented before the Assembly of the United Nations. Not too long ago they ...
R.S.L. AT BAY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
JBBLW®k!P &J®L4-& Mr. W. Keys, the National Secretary of the R.S.L., was interviewed recently by two Woroni reporters with respect to what the R.S.L. regarded as the purposes of Anzac Day. He was questioned in the light of the incident at Perth on Anzac Day when some memoers ot we puo lic unfurled placards pro posing Nuclear Disarma ment during the Last Post, and were attacked by members of the R.S.L. . He was told that even the 'Daily Telegraph' (Sydney) re ported these 'demonstrators' to have been behaving in an ord erly and respectful manner, and also that their placards were not in bad taste. SKILFUL EVASION He replied that their action was a direct provocation and mentioned darkly that he could 5. prove this. He then changed the topic. (Perhaps he considered that these demonstrators were trying to embarrass the R.S.L., who in- ,. cidentally must have a prior right to use brute force to con trol these situations.) NO POLICY! As stated, he changed the topic,- and ...

THE MORAL BREAKTHROUGH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
[?] Radicalism has at last reached a pinnacle of expres sion at the A.N.U., a long cherished myth of the 'common man' has been found wanting. It is the myth that honesty pays; 'that pinching from your mate ain't the thing'. We of the University fraternity can see through the foibles of common man. We must question his morality, and if we find it wanting, develop a more , en lightened one of our own. Common man, it has been mentioned, has many cherished beliefs — many of these are held merely for emotional reas ons and have no basis in rational thought. One such belief is surely that of the inviolacy of personal possession. As all things are the free gift of God, no man has the right to claim sovereignty over them. Believing this, one has a moral obligation to frus trate the attempts of common man (i.e. those still unenlighten ed) to maintain his sovereignty over material things. THE PROCESS OF ENLIGHTENMENT Having arrived at the 'conclu- sion that it is the moral obliga tion of the ...

Liberals on the Loose [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 May 1963
[?] After many pessimistic and sarcastic comments from the Socialists, liberals and non-politicians alike — the A.N.U. Liberal Club has come into being. Our objectives are to get lib eral speakers to give talks and more important to initiate de bates and strong opposition to the 'Labor Club'. Contrary to popular misconception, the lib eral policy is not conservative or a 'Just let things run' ideal. We support the free enterprise system running of an economy within the extent of 'the welfare state as initiated by the present government. We have agreed fur ther that we should affiliate with the Liberals. DOWN WITH SOCIALISM The 'Labor' Club seems rather afraid of its own ideals and at its last meeting it de clined to call itself a socialist club from fear of being branded as Communists. Since Socialism IS their platform, they should have the gumption to explain to the 'Ignorant Masses' (which they assume are present) what Socialism really entails. Also the Labor Club has con-, venien...
