ALPINE LODGE TO START THIS YEAR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

ALPINE LODGE TO START THIS YEAR ?I Thus spoke Pete Bower, newly re-elected President of the Ski Club, who has had talks with those who count in the Kosciusko Park Trust and A.N.U. At the AGM of the Ski Club held in the Childers St. Common Room, on Tuesday, 24th March, he outlined progress on the long-awaited Perisher Valley lodge project. The main item of cheering news concern ed the Sports Union support and adoption of the Lodge as an asset for the whole student body. This attitude is also apparent in the sentiments of the SRC. All that is needed now is some firm support from Academics who will use it for seminars and as a factory for. fabricating fish stories. Building Finance is still a problem but can be overcome with a little assistance from the authorities concerned. This is a project which will excite the imagina tion of all ANU mem bers r— staff and stu- 1 dents, School and Insti tute. A compact, 16 bed lodge slap-bang up against a T-bar with a lift of nearly 600 feet, close...

S. R. C. ELECTIONS SOON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

S. R. C. ELECTIONS SOON The election of members of the Students' Representa tive Council is to take place on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd of April, 1964. Results of th( voting will be declared si the Annual General Meet ing on 5th May. The S.R.C. is the official spokesman of the students and it is the S.R.C. that finances grants for clubs and societies. Thus the S.R.C. is the symbol of our corporate life — even if you are the most indolent and inactive individual in the university these elections should be of vital import ance to you. - Voting is not compulsory but if you can be sufficiently aroused from your apathy, let your votes be meaningful. Only in the S.R.C. can you gain repre sentation of your particular interests and societies — and thus of your own personal views — the right of every student in Aystralia (at least for a while yet!) DEMOCRACY OR TOTALITARIANISM — YOURS IS THE CHOICE! Votes should be cast between the hours of 12 noon- 1.30 p.m. and 3 p.m. - 8 p....

High Qualifications For Halls Of Residence [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

[?] [?] In an analysis of the academic qualifications of residents of A.N.U. colleges some startling facts have come to light. Only five per cent of Bruce Hall freshers do not hold scholarships; twenty-eight per cent hold prestige scholar ships. The following article discusses residential qualifications. ? This year about 900 students, or almost half, the undergraduate and graduate population of the School of General Studies, arc full timers.; This means that the : SGS has ceased to be what it was originally designed to ; be — a night-school for degree-hunting public ser vants and school 'teachers. Part-time students will con tinue'. in the future to., add maturity of judgement and singleness of purpose to the life of the university. But the tone of the SGS will from , now; on be set more and more by the full-time population ; which 1 should . exceed 1600 by 1967. HIGH PASS LEVEL Who will these ? students be, and what , will he their academic, .caiibre?, A con siderable number will ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Sir, . The letter from ? W. Lyons on Denominational Colleges in your last issue raises questions which surely deserve more serious consideration that can be offered in a facile word-juggling exercise on who's cudgeling whom into believing what around the A.N.U. Webster's definition of dogma is hardly to the point. The. crux of- the matter with regard to wether or not there should be denominational col leges at A:N.U. is the fact that in a University of this size, wc would be- extremely foolish 'to set about introducing divis ions . and dissensions into a ?system, which needs cohesion' more than .any .other factor, if it is ever to be a vital student body- with a respected contri bution to make to _thc' Austra lian, 'university' community. ' Severing- the student body along artificial lines which, -.it may- as well be admitted, simply do not reflect any signi ficant or relevant divergences in intellectual . thought as far as our community is concern-' cd, w...

Bushwalkers And Cavemen Out [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

fiHiitiiiiiiiiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiimtmiiiiuiiiiiitiiiiiiimiK (Bushwalkers And! I Cavemen Out I | Five new clubs applied to the 1 Sports Council at its last meeting, while two others announced their intention to apply at a later date. The five applicants were: A.N.U, Basketball Club, A.N.U. Baseball Club, A.N.U. Rock Climbing Club, A.N.U. Bushwalking Club, and A.N.U. Speleological Society, Baseball and Basketball were admitted automatically as recognised sports but the question was discussed as to whether the other three could be recognised as sports. Coun cil members felt that a sport should involve some coordina tion of eye and muscle, or some striving to gain superior ity over another individual or object in order to differentiate it from a recreation. The Rock Climbers were admitted while the Bush Walkers and Speleological Society were re jected. The Bush Walkers were' a borderline case and it' was felt that they -more filled the role; of a recreation. The Speleologists were rej...

Orientation Week The Editor, Woroni. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

Orientation Week The- Editor, Woroni. - Sir,. I have' followed with in terest the correspondence on Orientation Week. The issues raised are interesting ones— indeed, Sir, it would seem -that they are matters of quite some considerable controversy. . I have one point I would like to make on this matter. Orientation Week- is a Good Thing, a Very Good Thing. But with four - Orientation Weeks behind ? me now I have sometimes wondered whether organisers tend to forget the fresher when, planning the activities for the. Week. After . two or three years at University it is very easy to forget what it 'is like to be a fresher, ?no . matter how .well inten tioncd you may be. With this in mind then;- 1 I have been hoping to see i or hear some expressions of i fresher opinion on Orienta- 1 'tion Week as it was and as I they would like it. Alas, I have been disappointed. In order to maintain some 'grass roots' I would sug gest, Sir, that you ;or the S.R.C. survey fresher opini on, and the. opini...

NATIONAL UNION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

NATIONAL UNION N.U.A.U.S. was the subject of much discussion at the re ccnt S.R.C. meeting. It was agreed that the societies activi ties must be expanded. Strong support was forthcoming for . the Taxation Campaign of the society, for the follow-up of the Education Campaign which is to take the form of il yciiUUH SlgUUU uy PUDJIU figures, and for AntiApar theid moves. Because of pro posed expansion in activities particularly those relating to National Faculty Associations and need for a full-time Edu cation Officer, a motion was put forward that the member ship fee paid by constituents be raised by one shilling to 5/8d per capita. At the close of the meeting this motion was still unresolved but a special meeting of the S.R.C. is to be held to consider the question of the N.U.A.U.S. fee in 1 crease.

A New Committee For JCR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

A New Committee For ICR The new President of 'the J.C.R.C. at Bruce Hall, Mr. Geoff Russell, in his policy speech promised to tackle the Warden whenever pos sible and to provide more parties. The new president of the Bruce Hall Junior Common Room, Ge'ofT Russell, was re cently elected at the A.G.M. of that body, held on Wednes day, 18. Other office; bearers elected were Vice-Chairman, Elizabeth Reid, Secretary, Ross Howard, and committee members, Eliz abeth Haines, .' Pat Fuller, Celine Street and Peter Lav ery. Many Hall residents regard these meetings not so much as a means of airing grievan ces; which they seem to air quite adequately 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but rather as an exercise in the rules of debate. LESS RHETORIC MORE RESULTS This year in Bruce Ilall there are fewer such prospec tive parliamentarians and so emphasis at J.C.R. meetings has shifted from battles of wit, where subject matter is of little importance, to genuine business meetings, where people's prime in...

YOCKLUNN DEFENDS THE GOVERNMENT OF HALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 April 1964

[?] The Australian National University is the only university in Australia where residents of a Hail elect student representatives to its Governing Body. Not even the postgraduate students in University House have this privilege — their request for representation has been shelved for the time being. It was therefore disturbing to read in the last issue of 'Woroni' the article entitled 'Student Voice Needed in Halls' Government'. This con demned, in exaggeration and unjust terms the present sys tem of student representation on the Governing Bodies of Halls of Residence without considering the matter in per spective. It may appear obvious to the author of the article, 'R.M.', that students should have a direct say in the gov ernment of the Hall in which they live. But there are many in the University to whom this is not obvious. Thus the initial request for student Fellows in Halls was rejected in turn by the Committee on Affiliation of Colleges, the Board of the School of General Stu...
