CONTROVERSY GROWS OVER DENOMINATIONAL ? COLLEGES Recent moves by the University Council to accept application by Church groups for the building of. residential colleges within the campus has ? brought, strong opposition from some sections of th'e Staff Association. Unknown to most (especi ally students), discussions have been going on for some years between 'officers of the- Uni' and- various de nominations; The Anglicans, - Ursuline Provincialate (who .ever they . are), Roman ? Catholics1 and Methodists, have all made enquiries along this line. A' sub-committee of the Council, set up 'in 1961, re ported in favour of granting affiliation to residential col - leges. 'A subsequent com ? mittee in late 1962 agreed: — (a) 'The Halls of Resir dence should,- if possible, be. built on the University, site, preferably , in- the ; Black Mountain area in -planned' relation to . Bruce Hall.' They considered;; .colleges' outside the ? campu§- undesir able because of- its effect; on student -lif...

NATIONAL UNION SUPPORTS ARTICLE N.S.W. UNI PAPER FACES CENSORSHIP An article on the back page of 'Tharunka', the newspaper of the N.S.W. University, en titled 'The Gas Lash', has caused great con troversy in Sydney., Police investigation into the obscenity of the article and adverse public opinion have sent the editors inter state for an indetermined period. Unofficial reports indicate that although the Vice Chancellor has condemned the article, he is not pre pared to take action against those responsible. The article takes up the whole back page of a six teen-page edition, in a 'Ronald Searle' style of writing and illustration.

DRINKING ATTACKED IN THE UNIVERSITY COMMON-ROOM PARTIES STOPPED GETTING ORIENTATED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

DRINKING ATTACKED IN THE UNIVERSITY COMMON-ROOM PARTIES STOPPED {^^ETUNG^RIENTATED | The Principal, Professor Burton, in a recent inter view, strongly attacked the 'Drinking Cult' in the Uni versity describing these people as anti-social nuisances. Professor Burton added that he had referred this matter to an official meeting of the S.R.C. last year. He stressed he did not intend to let student parties on Uni versity grounds get out of hand. As a result,, the S.R.C. decided not ,to hold the end of year Party in the Com mon Room, but transferred it to the Childers Street Hall. It seems unlikely I that Common Room parties will be held this year, or i only so with stricter S.R.C. supervision. He said that complaints had been received about the conduct of students at such parties. He had himself seen many beer bottles strewn over the grounds, with evi dence of alcoholic excess on the Common Room floor and behind bushes, etc. 'University is a place where students should learn to drink in...

LOLITA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 March 1964

LOLITA The controversy over Lolila still rages,   despite the bitter arguments, it seems certain   that the 20 or 30 American Literature students   at this University will he studying it as a book this year. The novel deals with the love affair between a middle-aged American migrant and a 14-year-old girl. Dr Brissenden, the Senior Lecturer in English and the instigator of moves to incor porate Lolita into the syl   labus, argues that the 'novel forms an important part of contemporary American   Literature.       Opinion off our two Chap lains is divided: The Rever end Douglas Kemsely, the Anglican Chaplain, com     mented that 'young., people should learn to judge, things for, themselves and the best way is to read'' these things'.'

STUDENT VOICE NEEDED IN HALLS' GOVERNMENT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

STUDENT VOICE NEEDED IN HALLS' GOVERNMENT The student body housed by a University Hall of Residence is the essence of that Hall. At University level, students are gener ally regarded to possess a reasonable amount of intelligence and common sense. It is a relatively obvious fact, therefore, that the students of a Hall of Residence should have some direct say in their government. It appears, from an examina tion of the composition of the Governing Bodies of the A.N.U., that these students are being denied the right to have any real say in the affairs which most concern them. Threat to Freedom The Governing Body of a Hall of Residence consists of seven people chosen, by various means, from the members of staff of the A.N.U. and their immediate associates. Two mem bers of this august councir are elected by the students. It is not, however, as simple as it sounds. The two members elec ted by the students must be either graduates or fourth year students whose academic record is relativel...

£130.000 All for You [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

£130.000 All for You Newcomers to the A.N.U. have by now probably sensed the lack of some central building linking the University as a whole — a social centre to provide relaxation in between the long hours spent at lectures and in the library. Those of us who are not freshers have long recognized this deficiency — soon, however, to ?be rectified. Work is already in progress on a £138,470 contract let to A. V. Jennings Industries (Aus tralia) Limited, for the first stage of the Union. This will be sited in Ellery Circuit between the new Ad ministrative Block and Univer sity Avenue, and should be ready for use by the beginning of 1965. The building will comprise eating facilities, general activi ties rooms (one devoid of fur nishings might be wise!), space for indoor sports, a post office and stationery shop and various long - awaited offices — for Woroni, the Sports Union, the S.R.C. and for the Union Ad ministration (provided by the University) and the Union Committee comprising th...

Aussie Rules Prospects [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

Aussie Rules Prospects Uni is expected to progress further in the forthcoming season and push its way into the limelight in the local National Football competition. Almost all of last season's first grade side will be stripping again for the A.N.U. in 1964. Two players whose absence I will represent a significant loss are centre-man Peter (Bert) Engel, last season's skipper and a Football Blue, and outstand ing ruckman Bert Prowse. : There is no reason neverthe less why Uni should not be able to improve on last year's performance of finishing fifth out of eight teams. With outstanding players such as Andrew Green, Bruce McPherson, Julian Scott and Brian Wawn and the rapidly improving players such as John O'Kane, Jim Lally, Don Larkin, Rod Gilhome and Warren Gil home, Uni has a solid nucleus around which to build a for midable side. With a season of first grade experience behind them and their confidence boosted by the knowledge that they can topple teams such as Ainslie, Acton and Q...

Lolita in the Uni? Native Students in New Guinea bashed by Whites [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

Lolita in the Uni ? Native Students in New Guinea bashed by Whites Three New Guinea students here recently for the N.U.A.U.S. Conference in Melbourne told of brutal treatment by whites of some Naruan College students visiting Port Moresby a few weeks ago. Both of them were thrown to the floor in a Port Moresby Police Station, punched and kicked, put in gaol for the night and refused bail. One of the visiting delega tion from New Guinea was present and was also accom panied by a student from West Irian and a white teacher. The four of them had entered an hotel in Port Moresby in search of a friend. The bar manager refused to speak to them and told them to 'get out', and then he rang for the police for no reason. Followed When the police arrived they manhandled the two Naruan students and took them to the nearest police station. The manager refused to help the students and pushed them out while they were held by the police. When they arrived at the police station the manager and bar m...

Anyone for Rugger? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

Anyone for Rugger? All indications point to the A.N.U. Rugby Club having a record season this year. At the A.G.M. of the Club, held on Wednesday, 11th March, sixty-eight members attended and it would seem possible that the Club may exceed last year's effort of fielding seven teams. At this meeting the com mittee for 1964 was elected as follows: President: Dr. L. Hume; Club Captain: Dr. B. Kent; Secretary: G. Davies; Treasurer: R. Hides; Committee members: L. Evans, K. Jen nings, E. Drummond, A. Kaye, W. McLennan, R. Clement, M. Peedom, J. Starling. It was also announced that the coaches for 1964 would be: First Grade — Major K. Newman, Second Grade — Mr. J. Hagan, Third Grade — Mr. E. Drummond. Major Newman is well : known to Canberra Rugby as ? the coach of last season's R.M.C. side, which made the Grand Final. He has had the Club's keener players training for more than a month now, and may gain for Uni that elusive place in the final four. Mr. Jim Hagan, formerly coach of Sydney T...

editorial THE PRESS and the UNIVERSITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

editorial THE PRESS and the UNIVERSITY The recent flagrant misquota tions by the Melbourne Age, and to a lesser extent by other Australian newspapers of a talk given by Mr. Hasluck to the A.N.U. Liberal Club is very damaging in more ways than When a speaker is invited to talk to University students, he expects to be able to talk frankly and openly to them, be cause his audience does not expect the generalisations and carefully phrased words of a parliamentary address or press conference. They expect a more stimulating, interesting and crea tive talk, not one carefully phrased to escape those people who will hear and . report things in bits and pieces. A University should be a place of creative thinking; not a source for the press to sensationalise and miscomprehend ideas. The Melbourne Age quota tion, 'Australians should not lower themselves to the level of Asians.' is indeed a catching headline, especially to those people and 'he press system in Asia. This sort of ignorant and irre...

STUDENT LEADERS ARRESTED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

STUDENT LEADERS ARRESTED Leiden (Feb. 27) - Student circles in Ghana report that four Ghanian student leaders have recently been arrested and detained because of their role in student politics in . the country. This brings to five the total number of recent arrests, since the detention on February 3rd of Mr. A. K. P. Kludze, president of the newly-created West African Students Confederation and past-president of the natio nal Union of Ghana Students (NUGS). Govt. Criticised There is a widespread belief in Ghanaian student circles that the arrests are a result of reso lutions passed by the last annual NUGS congress held in Decem ber, 1963, at which a number of government actions, including the dismissal of the Chief Just ice of Ghana, Sir Arku Kosah, were criticised. Dismissal of the Chief Justice came last Decem ber, shortly after the Second Treason Trial in Ghana, when some of the accused were acquit ted by a Court presided over by Sir Arku.

A.N.U. ADOPTS NEW GUINEA COLLEGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

A.N.U. ADOPTS NEW GUINEA COLLEGE Last August a delegation from the National Union of Australian University Students visited various colleges through out the territory of Papua-New Guinea. As a result of the increased interest shown by the students of both these countries in each other's activities the N.U.A.U.S. has decided to invite member institutions of the National Union to 'adopt' colleges in Papua-New Guinea. The Aus tralian National University Stu dents' Association has decided to adopt a 'sister' college, St. Paul's Teacher Training College at Vuvu, near Rabaul. St. Paul's is a Roman Catho lic College which trains students for primary teaching. When the N.U.A.U.S. delegation visited the college, its students showed a great interest in our Student Representative Councils and the wide powers which they have. National Union They themselves elect from among their senior members a committee of prefects who re present the students in relation to the authorities. They hope to form ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR THE YEARLY NEW ERA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 20 March 1964

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR THE YEARLY NEW ERA Dear Sir, The headlines in the issue of WORONI 6th March state NEW ERA IN NATIONAL UNION. This is the third new era of N.U.A.U.S. in the last five years. The First era of N.U.A.U.S. in the last five years was when the executive, then situated in Newcastle re-organized them selves and told the world that N.U.A.U.S. was capable of existing while it was run by the students, for the students. This era lasted just over one year. The second new era started three years ago when N.U.A. U.S. set up permanently in Mel bourne. Lengthy constitutional changes were made which allo wed for; a permanent adminis trative secretary, a full time Educational Research Officer, and a Supervision Commitee. It was argued at the time that the cost of this administrative set up was worthwhile because it would be large enough to cope with the expanding Univer sities and because it still allow ed a student to be at the head of the organisation. The Education Research Off...
