"Steamroller" Fainsod Krushchev's Russia [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1963

'Steamroller' HP © m rainsoa — Kmsbekew's ffmsia In an orderly and not particularly boring address (only one sleeper was notic ed in the Academy of of Science lecture theatre), Prof. M. Fainsod, a visiting Harvard 'lecturer, covered considerable ground from his recent book 'Khrush- chev's Russia', He noted that neither U.S. nor U.S.S.R. were in tent on the devastation of a 'thermo-nuclear' war, but that this attitude is prob ably not shared by Peking. Neither the U.S. nor U.S.S.R. could be compla -r- cent in their control of the {non-aligned, he said. \ U.S.S.R., in particular, \has adopted a softer policy Ito emergent National Gov ernments in Asia and Af rica. Their support of bour geoisie Governments has brought Peking's wrath, Prof. Fainsod suggested. Prof. Fainsod didn't com pletely rule out the chance of Sino-Soviet clashes devel oping into a U.S.S.R.-U.S. alliance against China, but this would require a truly great leap forward by China, he said. In closing, the Professor call...

TOILET FACILITIES AT UNI OVAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

TOILET c FACILITIES AT UNI OVAL Al the most recent meeting of the Sports Council a matter which came in for a good deal of discussion was that of toilet and changing facilities at Uni Oval. Efforts to secure some sort of facilities until such time as the proposed Sports Pavilion has been built have proved fruitless. At one stage last year the Sports Council had been led to understand that exten sions to the post-graduate tennis clubhouse were about to be made with a view to providing the much needed facilities. These ex tensions have not material ised and it is doubtful if they ever will. Nor has the - Sports Council been able to secure use of an end of one of the blocks, vacated by the . Sciences. There appears to be little likelihood of toilet and changing facilities being provided for visiting crick eters- and other sportsmen until the Sports . Pavilion is built, which even the Sports Council is assured will occur before next cricket season, but a prediction from our side more li...

CRICKET VACATION SLUMP IN CRICKET [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

CRICKET VACATION SLUMP IN CRICKET Uni is having a lean season after a creditable early showing. 1st GRADE j The first four matches of the season saw Uni justify their promotion to the first grade competition in some closely . fought matches. Since then, however, Uni has been on the receiving end of a few sound thrash ings with only a narrow win over Manuka to brighten the record. The decline in stan dard of- Uni's performances seems to be due mainly to the loss of all-rounders Dick Hides and 'Jacko' Kevans. Both hit the ball hard and had been- scoring consistent ly well, and their departure greatly reduced the attack ing potentjal of Uni's bat ting, while the loss of Dick's accurate medium-pacers and 'Jacko 's' leg-spinners re duced both the steadiness arid variety of Uni's bowling attaok. In later matches, much of the responsibility for creat ing a respectable total has fallen upon Arthur Brown and Neil Tuckwell. and, with the exception of the match against Manuka, when open ers Jo...

SPORTING SECTION Inter-varsity Contests Sport In Small Universities [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

SPORTING SECTI#^ ? ? ''vfrn » ? \ Inter-varsity Contests Boost Sport In Small Universities It is an undeniable fact that, in the short history of the A.N.U. in inter-varsity sport, much has been gained by the various sports clubs which have participated. From a solid week of I sport and entertainment is derived a store of experi ence and team spirit. There is much to be ?learnt from watching the ? various styles of play of the bigger universities as these teams generally include several . players of inter national or near ? inter national standard. T h e ? Southern Universities learn . by watching and playing Rugby against the Eastern Universities, while the East ern Universities learn- by watching and playing Aus tralian Rules against South , era Universities. The A.N.U. learns from both directions. The team spirit develop ed by untried combinations at inter- varsity is something bordering on the incredible, especially when the odds are stacked heavily against. Above all, students ...

So delighted were these backbone :,boys of Australia's impregnable defences, that they ' insisted on carrying ;a' few selected students from Bruce Hall to a glorious reception at the Military College. Free haircuts were 'given to all students to conform to the traditional basin-cut worn by all cadets (see photo page. 3). Subsequently a mysteri ous sign appeared on the back of a bus full of cadets doing their weekly bargain hunting at 'Woolies', which claimed that 'Wp A.N.U.' Further retaliation ensued, including- the soak ing of one' student in the fountain in Civic Square, and an abortive attempt by students to place a certain chemical in the cadets' tea which was guaranteed to turn their urine purple for two or three d...

A.S.C.M. NATIONAL CONFERENCE 'National', it is called, and over four hundred.students and staff from all Austra lian- universities went to Adelaide this Janu ary for the annual Student Christian Movement confer ence. The breadth of. student concern- and local' diver gences of interest become apparent at a gathering on this scale, and- the nine .of us who represented the A.N.U. could feel a distinctive part of the conference. The theme, was God in the secular age, in the age. when we like to be realists, whatever reality may be', and in which we'are suspicious of religion which smacks of 'the religious'-' ? (a phrase used- deroga'tively more bv the Christians them selves), and suspicious, too, of the supernatural, arid even , the metaphysical.

UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS UNDER FIRE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS UNDER FIRE An article in the local newspaper 'The Canberra Tinxes' quoted the Principal of the A.N.U., Professor Burton, as saying that: Claims by .leading Western Aus tralian educationists that the Australian National Univer sity was poaching the State's topi leaving students were; 'parochial'. Following the selection of four students — Greg Allen, Peter Cross, Alan Knight, and Greg Smith — from Western Australia for 'National Undergraduate Scholarships' an unnamed educationist in Western Australia was reported .to have accused the A.N.U. of piracy in offering students lucrative incentives to study! in Canberra. The Scholar- 1 ships provide' free accom modation' at Bruce Hall arid a £100 allowance for the year and exemptions from lecture fees, and fares to and from home twice a year. 'The A.N.U. has not enough undergraduates and is trying to build up num bers by picking the eyes out of the State's Leaving pass list,' he said.'

Orientation Week gives wrong impression [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

Orientation Week gives wrong, impression Sir, — What is Orientation Week for, and is ii successful in carrying out its aims? Do those responsible for organising the week really know what they should be doing, or have they got a false picture of the University? Is it ! time for the SRC to rethink its conception of Orientation Week? Orientation Week should be planned to give , the fresh er, as far. as possible, an introduction to all. aspects of his .future. University life, and not only one part of it (i.e., the extra-curricular stu dent activities). To do other wise is to give a totally .mis leading picture of the Uni versity and to do a dis service to the-fresher. The programme for Orien tation Week can be taken as an indication of, the present organisers' conception of Orientation Week. Overall emphasis in the programme is. on grog shows (mostly for the old hands), and enter tainment of the freshers with films and assorted talks. GROG SHOWS | ' On five of the seven nights there ar...

ORIENTATION DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

ORIENTATION DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE. '? I hope that you all have 'enjoyed Orientation Week, 1964. As you can understand, many months of preparation have gone into this week to give the University Year a good beginning. However, the week of activities you have just seen gives a somewhat distorted picture of University* As the name implies, most of Orientation . Week is EXTRA curricular. Whilst these activities are essential to a rounded university life, it is possible to take part in more than a student can afford the time to (and pass his degree at the same time). Therefore I would urge you to weigh up . the possibilities carefully ' and join activities to which you can afford the time. Most students play some sport, take part in their particular faculty society activities and join one or two other clubs in which they have a special interest (such as politics or chess). One last thing, we have done our best to help . you fit into the university.. It is up to you now to help your self. By...
