Editor Rapped [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

Editor Rapped Sir, In this letter I intend to un mask a mysterious but apparent® ly ardent supporter of the in- - ternational Club. You too, will get a surprise when I reveal his identity. At the last function of the International Club on the 27th 1 of March, a Polish film was screened. After the lights were switched off, a latecomer very smoothly (as if it were planned) sneaked into the theatre and moved quietly to his scat, from where he enjoyed (?) the eve ning's programme. At the con elusion of the film this gentle man was the first to rise and left the theatre so hurriedly and inconspicuously that few people saw his face. The person in question was one of the co-editors of Wor oni. After a close examination 1)1. iiiv auuauvit ji wuuuumvu uidb his mysterious behaviour was quite rational. You see, he wrote an unfavourable editorial (9.4.63) on the International Club. However, after the pub lication of the editorial he changes his opinion. In facti he wished to join in the activit...

Menzies' Royals [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

Menzies' Royals s Sir, The name Royal for the new currency is unsuitable and ob-- jectionable. Members of Parliament tell us that the historical connections of the word, as well as its mean ing, emphasise our link with Britain. But why should this be a factor in favour of the name? Although most Australians are of European origin our way of life is, by now, very different to that of Europeans. We are a part of Asia. Surely it is high time that our national leaders decided that we are nation (and have been one, supposedly, since 1901) and not a colony of Brit ain. Perhaps our Prime Minister feels that to* stress our lint with Britain is an appropriate gesture of his appreciation for his knighthood. It is said that those who criti cise should suggest an alterna tive: if the unatlest twit is to be a cent, why not Rave an Australian Dollar? L. ftfusgrave. IT WAS ALL WORTH FIGHTIN' FOR MATE!

EDITORIAL S.R.C. Push [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

[?] ! S.R.C. Push ji About three weeks ago one cold and | j: drizzly morning, members of the S.R.C. | ji gathered in the Woroni Room whilst one | j: of the editors was in Sydney and, without | i; any further ado, proceeded to throw out | j; all the most beautiful junk that had | j gathered in that room during the past six 2 years. They toiled hard during the whole | weekend and by the time that Monday I j: had come about they had laid claim by J !? squatting rights to the Editor's nest | ji (without bothering to total their damage j ?ji to the magnificent system worked out by £ :- the staff of the newspaper). | «i But they, in their most condescending | manner, allotted a place designated | i; 'Brewster's Palace' to Woroni.

Quare Fellow [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

Qoare Fellow Sir, Did you hear what that fel low just said? What an extra ordinary mind that fellow must have! Can you imagine anyone worrying about a Union Build ing of all things? I mean what do they think they're here for? It's all so stunid. thev*ve eot everything here they could pos sibly want or use. Just look how handy the library is to the pre sent Common Room. I'll bet that if we had built them a Union last year they'd be complaining now that they have too far to walk to the library. Of course now that they're thinking about moving the library to its new building — it seems a waste to fill it with old books — we'll probably have to start humour ing them a bit. But that should not be for at least six months yet. And just have a look at what we've done for them. We've had a Union-Users Com mittee for some time now, but their members seem, to be dwindling. I suppose you can't expect them to stay here forever. And what about our latest effort — I haven't heard one single word o...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR... Webb Attacks Whitlam [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR... Webb Attacks Whitlam Sir, It seems neccssary to try and clear up many points which my previous article left unsaid, to gether with those that Mr. Whit lam twisted. Firstly, I would like to deal with the Liberal philosophy and policy (and here I am not neces sarily referring to the Austra lian Liberal Party). I am perfectly sure that Sena tor Goldwater or even Mr. Mac millan would strongly refute the title of Liberals; further, many books have been written about the different policies of the Liberals and the Conservatives. Firstly, the Liberal believes in free enterprise. Secondly, lie be lieves that governmental demo cracy is a vital and positive ele ment for reform in welfare and in some instances in the econ omy. A Conservative is not so much worried as to whether free enterprise is perfcct or restricted, but 'Conservatives believe in ac ceptance of established author ity wherever it is found without inquiring too closely into its documents of title'.

HERE'S YOUR ANSWER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 10 July 1963

HERE'S YOUR ANSWER I have seen figures in the ail' and heard voices while sitting in the fields. I feel as if I want to dress lip like a man and do something for my country. Can you help me? ? — Joan. Eyes are vitally important. Check with your oculist and get a thorough going over from an ear specialist, xnougn u may have just been too much sun. I suggest you talk to your mother about wearing boys' clothes. She'll tell you just how chic one can look with a boy ish outfit and a close crop! As for your last problem, I sug gest that you join one of the many splendid youth organisa tions in your neighbourhood. If you can't locate one right away, ask your vicar — there arc many fine Christian ones. I was very silly when I was younger, and sold my sould to the devil in return for know ledge. I am respected everywhere for my varsity record, but I am not looking forward to the fut ure. I keep dreaming of fires. What can I do? —Faust.
