A.N.U. Theatre Group [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 15 May 1964
' A.N.U. Theatre Group Tile A.N.U. Theatre Group announces the creation of two literary awards for original dramatic writing by an under graduate: 1— The sum of £30 will be awarded for the best Full Length Play. 2 — The sum of £10 will be ? warded for the best One-Act Flay. THEATRE AWARDS WITHIN THE UNIVERSITY In these days of strict mater-: lalism there exists an unfor tunate distaste by :the ? young for starving in garrets to serve ART. Now, even art must pay a basic wage, or artists . go on permanent strike. It is with this thought in mind that the Theatre Group moved to create two awards which would encourage bud ding playwrights in the univer sity to get to and finish those brilliant masterpieces which have been gathering dust in the pigeonholes .of 'the 'mind. - We decided tha'f an appeal to honour or' self-satisfaction was not enough ? — . something more was needed, viz.: MONEY! The entries, which close'' on the last 'day of Second Term, will be judged by a committee of five ...

Simple [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 15 May 1964
Simple Sir; Simplicity is spent. Complex images wrought in pedantic verse are the 'new' modes of self-expression. Must poetry be burdened by symbolic and mystical re ferences? Do the idiosyncracios of the mind, the lack of coherency in thought, embellish a poem's worth? If granted, the apolo gia of non-informity as an es cape from stilted social values — is this tantamount to a dis joint jumble of thoughts under the auspices of 'reaction' poetry? Do classical ' terminology and. metaphysical .;asides- con stitute clarity of expression? . Is it a poet's purpose to communicate ' feeling?. If other people '('whom once I deemed respectable') need to delve into archaic re ferences ' and continually re read vcr.sct has the essence of 'true' poetry been attained? A re inversion; run-ons and irregularities of style; the (|iiin tessence of the poet's 'value'? : I indeed need ''the final .catharsis'' ' of ' mind R.J.M.', don't' you? C. H. Burgess.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Speleological Spong [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 15 May 1964
LETTERS TO ' THE EDITOR Speleologies! Spong Sir; The rccent controversial affiliation with the Sports Union of three new clubs has 'triggered' a debate on what exactly a sport is. It has been decided that this is the ap j propriate time to define pre 1 cisely what is meant by 'sport' and 'tidy up' the Sports Union. Sport as defined by the Ox ! ford Dictionary is among other things an amusement, pastime or game. This is a broad definition and clearly provides little guidance whne deciding whether or not an activity is n sport. It's in fact impossible to provide any exact definition of a sport which will bo explicitly ap plicable to every border-line case. The only way out of this dilemma seems to be to list every activity which is to be regarded as a sport. But is this in fact a just procedure. On this basis the reasons for the decision as to whether an activity is to be included in the list, do not come to light. In the final analysis the decis ion is based on the* consensus of intu...

SCIENCE CONFERENCE... Arts For Women [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
SCIENCE CONFERENCE . . . Arts For Women 'Men are becoming more and more involved with technology and science . . . Our culture and past will have to be carried forward by our womenfolk.' So SDoke Prof. E. W. Tit- 1 terton. Prof, of Nuclear Phy sics, I.A.S. at the annual con ference of the National Sci ence .Faculty Association, held at the A.N.U. over the May vacation. Prof. Titterton was speaking at a discussion 'Humanities in Science Cour ses' with Prof. R. St. C. Johnston; both professors op posed the introduction of compulsory humanities cour ses into science degree cour ses — but for different rea sons. Prof. Johnston felt that a proper approach to Science made special humanities sub jects unnecessary, but, in any case, a few units would not transfer the narrow scientist into the polished humanist. Prof. Titterton claimed that more science for the Arts student would be a good thing and that the scientist had an adequate working knowledge of the humanities learned from the exper...

New Hall [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
New Hall The university has accepted a tender worth £890,706 for the construction of a new hall of residence, which will accommodate 500 students when completed in about 18 months time. Commenting on the new project, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Sir Leonard Huxley, said today that the hall had been designed to meet the need for the most economical form of construction while providing student study and recreation facilities of a high standard. FACILITIES: The hall would comprise two groups of four four storey brick buildings on either side of a central block. Within this block would be two dining rooms, kitchen, common rooms, music and games rooms. Each of the residential blocks would contain laun dry facilities and a small common room with facil ities for making tea and coffee. Each student would oc cupy a single studybed room containing a bed, which would be convertible to a divan during the day, an easy chair, reading lamp, and bookshelves. A feature of the roo...
POOR RULES FORM AFTER I.V. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
POOR RULES FORM AFTER I.V. This year's inter-varsity trip to Perth proved to be our most successful carnival to date. We played the games to win two and lose one, losing second division to Brisbane only on percentage. However we have the sat isfaction of beating Brisbane in the final game.- Our best player over the Carnival was Ross Garnaut, who is to con gratulated on being selected in the All-Australian Univer sities team, Vic Price, Geofi Brown, Warren and Rod Gil holme and Jim Lally all de serve mention. We would like to thank and congratulate Perth for an extremely well organised and enjoyable week, voted by all the team the best booze-up ever. Since our return the dis plays have been very medi ocre. We lost heavily against Ainslie and won narrowly from Turner. The effect of Inter-Varsity plus the vaca tion no doubt account largely for these poor showings. In both these games Vic Price at centre half-back stood out and was ably supported by Bruce Macpherson, Peter Col lings, Ge...
PROPOSED SHIFT OF N.U.A.U.S. TO CANBERRA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
PROPOSED SHIFT OF N.U.A.U.S. TO CANBERRA At the last February Council meeting of N.U.A.U.S. it was definitely decided that the Secretariat of National Union would move to Canberra in the future. This move has obvious advantages for a body such as National Union which is virtually concerned with putting forward submissions etc. and pressuring the Government on behalf of all Australian University Students. However, the move to Canberra involves many dif ficulties, the main one being cost.. National Union has had unofficial indications from members of the Aus tralian Universities Com mission that they would be prepared to consider grant ing money for the purpose of providing permanent quarters for National Union in the next triennium. The best way of going about this would be for the A.N.U. to sponsor N.U.A.U.S. in its estimates for the next triennium. It was about this sponsorship that I flew down to Mel bourne last week. The total program of the A.N.U. to be considered for the next t...

The Old Brown Clock [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
The Old Brown Clod Some time ago you may have noticed that stolid, brown clock in the Common Room was displaying an odd trait. ? I discovered this one day when I camc into the Com mon Room ' at ten to eleven to .snatch a quick cup ot tea. Having' duly quaffed ft cup, I .again, glanced at the clock to see whether it was time to go, Tlie clock read 10.40. Being of an essent ially quick mentality it did not take mc long to get to the root of the problem, that the hands of the clock were doing . that unpardon able thing, revolving anti clockwise. I just laughed it off as the . disgust of a sen sitive clock which was sick .of.'., being suspended on the wall of the infamous Com mon Room and' promptly forgot about it. The clock was eventually guided once more on to the clockwise path of virtue and I had no reason to be lieve that there would be ariy after-effects: of that little episode. It was some ' time later that I, began to detect an alarming attitude iu myself. I became obsessed with...
Sports Union [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Sports Union De ar St, In 1951, I moved that the Sports Union b« separated from tha Students' Association in the belief that it would be' well' able' to manage its own afFtiirs. That belief appears to have been over-opfimictic, for the Sports Union now claims parity of income- with -the Students' Association without being pre-t pared to assume comparable responsibility. The general significance . of ; the surrender to the A;U.S. A. i of. thi ji'sht to designate, what forms' of activities arc to be regarded as ''sports' is that it- it. then no longer the case hat all genuine -student -clubs ? arc catered for by one -or : other. of. the Students'., As-, sociation and ; the Sports ! ?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MR. WEBB AND CHURCH COLLEGES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
i LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MR. WEBB AND CHURCH COLLEGES Dear Sir, F am r.ot claiming to speak for the University Council, but my own reaction to the article on Church Colleges in Woroni (15/5/64) was certainly one of indignation, but only because the article distorted the facts in a quite unprincipled fashion. Students who are expected to study issues objectively and to seek the truth, might be expected to report Council policy and attitudes fairly and correctly. It is not at all imperti nent for students to express views on university policy, or ^ on ' matters that aflcct the university as a'. whole. But it is, to say the least, rather naive for any .student to expect the university to reverse a policy, adopted less than two years . ago after months, of careful de liberation, simply because 35 students (out of 1935 enrolled in the School of General Studies!) have de manded it. Most members of the council have had experience of student poli tics; they are 'familiar with the technique o...

Are You Alive? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Are You Alive? from 'TIME' Heads turned at Canberra's sleepy campus when resident prophet, middle-sized (5'9'), stocky (140 lb.), brown-haired Sam Voutas challenged inmates right to live. Voutas, a sometime stu- ? dent of human environment, flayed mankind's depend ence on his artificial, if ma terially developed civilisa tion. 'By what right do you en joy the benefits of our civil isation apart from that of birth?' he challenged. 'None of you have earn ed the material benefits you enjoy — you merely in herited them. You have no moral right to these benefits until you earn them by proving yourself capable of surviving without them.' i 'Birthright is not a moral right,' quipped Voutas' I chief henchman, tall (Gt'l'), | slim (140 lbs.), bearded (5th week) Tony Godfrey I Smith. 'What right have you to the 'cargo' which the Kuku kuku warrior from Mon gainu hasn't?' flipped Vou tas. In an attempt to justify their existence Voutas and Godfrey -Smith plan to challenge nature on her own term...
