THE BLACK DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
THE BLACK DEATH Many and various 'jiew' | student publications, have appeared of late. These I signs of a new ferment in the ANU must be applaud ed, at least so runs one. line of thought. As the -fifta there is also cause for alarm and disgust. The few supporters of studeni journalism feel that these multiferous ? insects are .sapping the life-blood o. Woroni. cr of other large, worthwhile publications. This may be true, but why .worry? The soonsr that -pretentious fraud, Wor oni, is dead, and buried lhe betljr; Why run a club for a lew embittered militants and would-be journalists? We will show courage, resolution and logic by knocking this ridiculous waster of student funds . on the head. If the Epidemic kills Woroni history will ju tigs it an instrument of bene ficial providence. Unfor tunately, ..-much moi;e per nicious tcnde.ncies arc ap parent. Not only are' these small publications encouraging sectionalism and diversified specialisation in an already small . University, but t...

SERMONS IN STONES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
f Overawed, and like a Muslim worshipper,, I divested my footwear a* the silent building and stepped onto the luxury of the carpet. The stairs and the second , iioor were colder and dirti er. I found myself confront ed by a few tables and rows upon rows of horse boxes containing, as far as I could see, rows upon rows of human feet. I could see at once that i would have to learn to begin to recognise the lower portions of my acquaintances as I now' knew the upper. Forlornly I wandered down the rows, shoes in hand, in search of -a seat, receiving stares of .amuse ment or annoyance from the more fortunate occu pants as I peered oyer the partitions. I chose a spot near a window (from fear of con tracting claustrophobia) and sat down to enjoy the vast expanse of desk space stretched out before me. I found the desks ideal for eating, drinking, filing one's nails, doing one's hair, etc., and the place was so silent I could usually hear ap proaching footsteps before 1 isaw their owner or vi...
The Last Man In HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
The Last j Man In I HOCKEY Following a poor showing in 1962 the club was downgraded this year and consequently has done well for itself with three teams in their respective final fours. The semi-finals were — r — o i o /in . piayuu uii.ji.o.oj; A Reserve: University finished first on the lad der, won their semi-final against Barton 3-2 and looked set to take off the flag.

B2: University unluck ily finished third on the ladder and were beaten by R.M.C. 2-1 in the semi-final.

Inter-'Varsity, held at Brisbane in the August vacation, was marred by numerous injuries and, from the point of view of hockey, unsuccessful. However, the survivors rallied round the key and had a thoroughly en joyable ten days. This vacation also up ...

FRANTIC JUGGLING BY S.R.C. AS AUDITORS CLOSE IN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
FRANTIC^JUGOLIC BY ' [?] The future of Woroni provided possibly the most spirited debate ? of the five S.R.C. meetings held so far this year. This occurred at the most recent meeting on Tuesday, September 5. A motion was moved by the Treasurer, Mr. Hartnell, and seconded by Mr. Thynne, that this 3rd term Woroni be printed. It was pointed out to the council, however, that to bring out this edition only one other Woroni could be afforded by the present S.R.C. within the Woroni budget of £600 and so ac cordingly only one Woroni could be brought out in 1st term next year. This motion was passed, thereby making this edition possible and also another appointing Mr. Bill Mar shall as a special editor for this Woroni. However the possibility of only one edition of Woroni in 1st term, 1964, had ex cited the interest of mem bers of the S.R.C. and the ' discussion moved from lethargic discussion into elevated debate, during which' time the President, Mr. Higgins, was forced to keep 'a call lis...

Since the closing down last term ine s.k.u. nas moved into its own buttery and so the only conceivable stop page to this student service can be the failure of stu dents to support this.

EDITORIAL GUNS BEFORE BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
EDITORIAL luiTii This is the last edition of 'Woroni' for 1963, and it is different. You may not like it — that is unfortunate; however, you will be able to say 'I told you so' next year when there is no more 'Woroni'. That is to say statistically inferentially there should be no more editions, judging by the present degree of enthusiasm and interest. No doubt the possible (and highly probable) cessation of publication will fall blamewise to the A.N.U. student 'Establish- ment': the S.R.C. and the present editorial staff. So be it. However, remember this: government of any kind (and the Press is an integral part of this) should be, by and of the people as well as for them. It you don't like this particular form of government change it, fight it, or at least think about it. You may not like thinking — statistics of starving children on front pages may depress you or perhaps even cause you to miss that extra little bit of gossip of who's sleeping with whom in the Common Room — very we...

Black Bar To Ed [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
Blwk Bmr I® & QnJy four of more than 105,000 -Aborigines attend universities in Australia. The majority don't even reach Intermediate level, and many never cjo to high school. This is a deplorable situation in a couniry with supposedly enlight ened attitudes. One reason for their low scholastic standard is their home environment, which is rarely conducive to study. It ? lacks stimuli to know ledge which even the poor est Australian homes take for granted. Such things as magazines, newspapers and books, radio and TV are missing. The low social position of the Aborigines makes it difficult for them to utilize any education that they they do obtain and tends to produce a disillusioned and apathetic attitude to educa tion and consequently among the children. Obvi ously, under these - condi tions 'the attitude of abori ginal children to education is quite different from that of the white child, and in order to educate the major ity of aboriginal students successfully instead of j...

Spring Message [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963
~S)princf ItfjedAacfe The winter has gone and the 'promised kiss of springtime' is here once more. This, of course, is in theory only; the weather is just as drizily, the nights just as cold. Blossoms flour ?ish in pink swirls however, and the little birdies sing, so now is the time to wake up, come out of hibernation, pulsate with life, throw carc to the winds (and study in the meantime). If, however, you are in capable of entering into the true spirit of spring, be nos talgic.1 You must have felt the urges of one spring or an other, and there's always the future. I mean, spring comes every ycar with newer (?) and better things to offer! But don't fight It if you have it! Give yourself up to all the traditions of spring. Delight in your youth or your memories of it. Epitomise your upheaval or surge of emotions in a new way of life and be re-born along with the vegetables. A cabbage follows the same pattern, you know! One thing to remember — you are human (even if you're inhuman) an...
