CRICHTON SUPPORTS TRUMAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
CRICHTON SUPPORTS TRUMAN In the 'New York Times' Book Review for September, 1950, Alice S. Morris wrote of Truman Capote: 'The political, economic and social perplexities that darken civilization cast no shadows, or only incidental ones, in Mr. Capote's patchwork world. The bits and snatches he has pieced it out with are funny, sunny, sad, but never worrisome.' While this may be true of the book under review, 'Local Colour,' nothing could be more untrue of Capote's collection of short stories under the title of 'A Tree of Night.' Certainly Capote does not write essentially as a critic of contemporary society, as indeed seems to be becoming- fashionable these days, nor does he offer any political or social panacea for the ills of the times, ' but no writer is more expressive -of the feelings and attitudes of the people of a generation shadowed by political and social perplexities. It is probably too early to make any real evaluation of ; Capote 's work, but we can say that' it is of ...
Vivat Academia [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
Vivat Academia Hands up, anyone that cares about the Academic Life. I thought so. You ill the back row there, put your hand- down; you're new to Canberra and don't know any better. For some . twenty . years, now, ; people have been trying t'o stir up student feeling in Canberra. Of course, other Universities com plain about Student Apathy too. They, don't know what they're talking about. They haven't seen us. Of course we have innumerable excuses. We rush from our office to lectures, and rush off again ' when- the lecture is over, so as not to miss buses. We have no time to stand and stare. Even if we had the time, we haven't got a Quad to sit around in, or a coffee shop to waste beautiful hours -of 'talk. Besides, we're only in this for what we can get out of it— aren't we? We're after degrees . so we can be lordly Graduates and get more pay and be regarded with- alternate awe and scorn by the rest of the Public Service. It's 110 use telling us that degrees don't matter, that unive...
SOUND AND FURY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
SOUND AND FURY Dear Editor, Well, well, so Wendy Shaw, whoever she may be, dissociates herself from the rest of mail kind, detests the Korean war, and sees no hope for the human race. This is alarming news, or would be if Miss Shaw's article weren't such earnest nonsense. - A few _ simple facts need to* be pointed out. One is that we are not going to avoid 'the carnage described somewhat hysterically ; by Miss ' Shaw, by sitting back and think ing noble thoughts . It is in order that blood may not run in the streets ~ of King's Cross, etc., that the United Nations (not just America ) is fighting in Korea. Asian imperialism has got to be stopped, and as far from Australia as possible. It is all very well to be idealistic ; but if we cannot put the whole world to rights, we can at least keep Australia a free and democratic country ; and this we can only do by defeating Com munism. Maybe we haven't any ethical right to suppress Asian nationalism ; but we have a right to remain Australi...
MORE LABOUR LOSSES W. G. Higgs, Australia's First Fabian? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
MORE LABOUR LOSSES W G. Higgs ? Australia's First Fabian? The Australian labour movement is fast losing its grand old men. The veteran editor of the Sydney 'Worker,' Mr. H. E. Boote, died not two years ago, and last week, almost unnoticed in the shock caused by the passing of Mr. Chifley, the death occurred of another former Commonwealth Treasurer, and Labour editor, Mr. W. G. Higgs. What did these giants of the past contribute to our society in their prime, and what did they think of the political party which has developed out of the work of their hands? - Shortly before the 1949 elec tions Mr. Higgs remarked : . ' I 've been through the mill, and Social ism won't work, for who's going / to be the boss?' .Was this a de sertion of principle by a man who in his youth had watched a march of unemployed men carrying a sign: 'Bread or blood'? It was not. Mr. Chifley said not long ago that he regarded the Labour Movement as a religion, . just as the German Social Democratic Bernstein had ...
BRITTEN HAS DONNE IT AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
BRITTEN HAS DONNE IT AGAIN ' ' This young -spark is good ^ com- pany for as long as his persiflage remains fresh, which is not long. One hopes earnestly that he is aware of the nature of his phase— . a kind of programme-music phase of which the . programme is ' See ' how knowing I am, how much wiser than my . years'.'-' ; Well, this was written in the Musical Times in 1934 and I don't think Benjamin Britten lias ' ' learnt his lesson.' I do think, however, that he has suffered little from his laxness. Perhaps he is saying, 'See how knowing I am, etc.,' but he certainly has not lost bis .freshness mainly because his work is continually being re juvenated by a new and highly dexterous experiment. Several weeks ago the A. B.C. broadcast .the 4th Edinburgh ' Festival of music featuring Ben j am in Britten and tenor Peter Pears and ' including in the pro gramme Britten's own arrange ment of several of John Donne's v Holy Sonnets.

AUSTRAL-ARISE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
A U ST RAL-AR I S E 'Be ready for the march into Germany with an advance copy of 'Berchtesgaden' ... ' ' To do or die, Australians cry, The Empire defending, Australian lads we're sending; We'll bust up the works of the watch on the Rhine, And pin-cli all the washing off the Siegfried Line; We will not fight to show our might, But just because we know we're . right.' Thus ran the war-cry of 1939. The. sentiment was not greatly different from the burst of patriotic entliusiasm of August, . 1914, when the late C. J. Dennis' r ? 'Fellers of Australier, ~ Blokes an' coves an' coots . . . ' was greeted with profane en thusiasm. Since 1914. we have, unhappily, had adequate oppor tunity to consider the utility of the flag-flapping in wartime. Does the current recruiting campaign reflect the results of this exper ience? Early in the Korean campaign (and even now in the. pronounce ? v ments of the Director-General of ' Recruiting) one finds the old cliches breaking through : /'The ' reputati...
TRUMAN'S TOOL SHED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
TRUMAN'S TOOL SHED The University College Political Science Club held its second meeting for the year on Monday, 2nd June. An overwhelming attendance of 17 members (nearly half from the staff and including the six speakers) was entertained and/or edified by a learned debate on the subject 'The United Nations is an Instrument of' United States Imperialism.' Mr. Brooks opened the debate for the Government, by careful definition of the subject. He then proceeded to use the rest of his time outlining the methods by which the U.S. has developed its influence in the Security Council and the General Assembly, and showed by examples how it has gained its own ends in nearly every dispute it has taken up. He said, too, that the smaller U.N. organs were not here under dis cussion, only the main political body. . . This - : point . was taken by - Mr. Webster for the Opposition. He was the outstanding speaker for the evening, his rhetorical elo quence leaving the audience (or part of same) dumb....
HOPE FOR THE FEMALE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 July 1951
HOPE FOR THE FEMALE Not being a poet or even a philosopher I am confining my remarks to a discussion of the male as distinct from the female portion of mankind. But I address myself chiefly to women, who, - after all, are cruelly bored by politics and sport. For it is within ' a university that one is struck by the prevalence of women ignorant of certain elementary knowledge familiar to the average house wife: women, who, to judge from their exam results, intend to - ' compete with men- in the shabby business of earning a living. Strange delusion, hen marriage expressly rescues them from this insupportable bondage ! Is mili tant feminism responsible for de luding women into thinking that they are E QUAL to men I At first this appears as fantastic as the notion of Einstein referring to his fingers to solve a mathematical problem; or of Professor Ander seekirig clarification ' on a' meta physical point from a street corner preacher ; or Shakespeare . claiming that his language is. equ...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1952
EDITORIAL Briefly, this Editorial is going to be brief. The Student's Representative Council realizes that Canberra University College is still in its embryonic state.
