Labour Club Crisis COMMUNISM McCARTHYISM MUDSLINGING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Labour Club Crisis COMMUNISM MtCARTHYISM MUDSUNOING In the last week of the recent vacation, an issue of the Labour Club broadsheet, Crucible, appeared, which has, to say the least, caused a great deal of comment. Entitled 'What Goes in i the Society of the Study of Labour History' and signed with the pseudonym of A. Kulange, the article pur ported to expose this society as a nest bed of Communist activity. Printed on tradi tional pink 'Crucible' paper the first paragraph quickly set the scene for what was to follow. 'One often hears of Com munist control of unions, of Communist activity in this or that organisation, but it is rare that any de tailed account is given of their operations. The fol lowing article deals with Communist activity in the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (A.S.S.L.H.). Tt shows how the Communist Party took an initial interest in the society, and how they opera ted to seek influence in the society.' The article goes on to name many members of...
S.R.C. IS FIRM ON ORIENTATION WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
S.R.C. IS FIRM ON ORIENTATION WEEK At the last S.R.C. meeting, the Principal, Prof. Burton, put forward a proposal for a shorter Orientation Week. He said that it was felt by many of the staff that Orientation Week tended to lag and in light of the recent decision to lengthen the academic year by a week, he felt that seven days was superfluous. The S.R.C., however, apart from scattered offers of compromise from some members, were generally firm on retaining the status quo. Speaking against the Principal's proposal, Thorne said that he felt that the existing week was necessary to enable interstate students to settle into the University. He also said that clubs and societies, although still not aware of how to make full use of Orientation Week, were gradually realising its potentials and in the future it will become increasingly valuable. President Hartnell stress ed the success of this year's introductory lectures and said that Orientation Week was perhaps the only time of the year w...

REVIEW... Canberra Folk [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
REVIEW. . . Canberra Folk - Rolk music ir the forerunner of all music. It traces itself back to fundamental human needs which give rise to this form of expression — even in the most primitive and uncultured states folk music was found (and is still found in this early stage today in the Aboriginal song). Until the decline of feu dalism in Western Europe, folk music was the music of a large part of a population living the same lives over most of the Continent. The coming of the industrial age, the movement towards the cities and the ever increasing pressure on the workforce to specialise, des troyed the possibility of ever retaining one 'folk' with a comrhon life. In its place arose many smaller 'folks', i.e. groups of pfcople with communal inter ests. All these groups devel oped the music for their own needs, and hence today we are blessed with many different types of folk music. The types represent a wide range of different groupings in ? the community; eco nomic, political, racial...
The Absurdity Of Folk-Singing [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
The Absurdity Of Folk- Singing There have been many fads, crazes and things — to do — ? to be in — over the last few years, but folk singing really takes the cake. Many of these fads arc ? un derstandable in that the in tellectual fringe is not invol ved — in other words v,e must expect the average young person to be duped; but surely A member . of' the more intelligent sector of the community ?should not fall ' victim to the promotion,- and to, pathetic mob enthusiasm. We can excuse the ' intel ligentsia for tolerating or even enjoying the. Beatles be cause — well, I mean it really is music, isn't it? — and also because they arc such ? a bloody joke anyway.' But folk singing — never! Never has there been such an excuse for palming off such pure and unadulterated rubbish onto the (arid I quote myself) 'in- tellectual fringe'. The. essent ial thing is a guitar or banjo plu's the slightly suffering wist ful voice; anything whatever may. be sung. 'A B C W X Y Z, (pronoun ced 'zee') / T...
Graduates Abroad [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Graduates Abroad Dear Sir, Jn recent years many stu dents from Australian univer sities have gone overseas to work for two or three, years in an underdeveloped country on completion of ? their course. This work is helping the oevelopment of these countries in a very real way. Because of the . value of this work and because of the lack of ready information various organisations arc now correlating information and in other way facilitating the movement of graduates to the underdeveloped areas. The number of positions available and the number of sponsoring organisations are too numerous to list for gen eral circulation. I should be happy to pass on this infor mation to any students re questing it. - 1 am to be con tacted at phone UO 413 Xtn. 479 or at Reid House. ' Yours sincerely, . Keith Blackburn.

Liberal Club [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Liberal Club Sirs, I find your commentary upon Dr. Kenneth Inglis's talk for the Liberal Club rather perplexing. You say: 'It is to be hoped that the aim of the Liberal Club is quality' and yet you pub lish . a derogatory comment which is itself confused and inaccurate. It is not at all difficult to establish Dr. Inglis's expert ness in this field. He has been for some years a con tributor and his essay, 'The Daily Papers', in Peter Coleman's 'Australian Civi lisation' is one of the best in a book of very many good essays. The excellence of this particular talk can be demonstrated by point ing out that 'The Canberra Times' and 'Nation' both rc-printed the talk almost in its entirety; a charge of lack of quality is not borne out. The charge that Dr. Inglis neglected 'the implications of the spread of monopoly and the possible restriction of free expression' is not true. The fact is that Dr. Inglis did deal with this point, albeit briefly. A re sult of the Fairfax purchase of Federal ...
Oriental studies [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Oriental studies Sir, ' ?. I was surprised to read in the last issue of Woroni the inference that I was responsible -for the triumph of the 'baddies' (the Ori ental Studies Society) . over the ' 'goodies' (the Arts Society). I am flattered by the mvstical influence over the S.R.C. that is imputed to me, but feel that I can take little credit for this, for three main reasons. Firstly, as an ex-officio member of the S.R.C. I do not have a vote. Secondly, I made no at tempt to lobby any member of the S.R.C. before the grants meeting. Thirdly, the . proposed S.R.C. budget was circula ted to all S.R.C. members before the grants meeting. This budget indicated the amounts that would be re garded as reasonable for a particular type of function. Applications that took these limits into account suffered little alteration. The Arts Society application was obviously unrealistic, and therefore was pruned. In ainswer to your rhe torical question: 'What Have thi Oriental . Studies Got that the ' A...
Sports Council [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
Sports Council Dear Sirs, ? Your front page article and editorial on Sports Union affairs in Woroni (8.6.64) have prompted this letter. Yoiij- article and editorial contained some fine examples of biased reporting, misrepre sentation and just plain ig norance. I shall treat each of your works in its turn. The opening paragraph of your front page article stating that the New Executive of the Sports Council was be hind the fee increase pro posal at the A.G.M, is com pletely untrue. The motion was moved by Mr. N. Tuck well and seconded by Mr. G. Russell. Both of these per sons were members of the previous year's Sports Coun cil (Mr. Russell was Secre tary) but neither was ever nominated for any .position on the 1964 Council. Further, you stated with re ference to the first vote taken on the fee increase issue ... 'a division was called which resulted in its defeat as people milled confusedly around each end of the room'. This is n deliberate piece of biased reporting. When a division w...

The Crucible [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 May 1964
The Crucible Sir, - The' official, statement of the Labour Club regarding the purported editor of 'The Crucible' containing an article on an. alleged Communist takeover of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History makes clear that this jour nal was produced without the consent of one of the co-editors, myself. I shall merely fill in a few details here regarding the manner of production of this jour nal. At no . time during the preparation of this journal was I in Canberra. I ar rived back from Melbourne, where I had been attending the Australian Student Labour Federation Confer ence, on Saturday to find a fait accompli. This scurri lous publication had already been roneoed off and copies had been sent as far as Sydney before I even knew that it existed. Yet my co editor had the presumption to include my name in the publication as an editor! If I had been in Canberra during the time when this article was produced I could certainly not have consented to its inclusion in '...
Editors' Conference [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
! Editors' Conference EDITORS attending their annual N.U.A.U.S. conference in Hobart have produced this four page supplement for national distribution. It is the first time that such a venture has been under taken by Editors' Conference and it is hoped that it will continue. I Through the supplement, editors were able to work together and exchange ideas and technical policies. After hours of violent disagreement, strenuous parties, over indulgence in alcohol and food, this is the result. The material was con tributed largely by N.U.A.U.S., but some of the stories were written by delegates during the con ference. The supplement will have an estimated circulation of 60,000 copies in all States. Apart from this supplement, Editors' Con ference achieved much. The most beneficial of a series of talks was that given by the Attorney General of Tasmania, the Hon. R. F. Fagan, on 'Censorship: A Government Viewpoint'. A re | port of this talk should appear in your local i student papers. Othe...
OBSCENITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
OBSCENITY TWO Sydney publications face obscenity charges as this supplement goes to press. They are 'Thar- unka' (University of New South Wales student news paper) and 'OZ', a satir ical monthly with a large student readership. Police have not given details of which material was the alleged obscenity, and since the matter is sub judice this article cannot comment on the mater ial. Publishers, printers, editors and artist Martin Sharp have all received police summonses. It is expected that the U.N.S.W. Students' Union will plead not guilty and fight the case as will the publishers of 'OZ'. Lawyers say that fighting such court cases is the only way to make the Government change the outmoded laws. Editors should be free to treat any subject in any way they desire (unless there are proven bad effects). This freedom can be gained only by changing the laws. Well Harold, these students may be overtaxed with work, but . . . k.
N.U. FIGHTS FOR TAX CUT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
N.U. FIGHTS FOR TAX CUT i | THE Submission on Education and Taxation put out by N.U.A.U.S. is currently being examined by the Federal Treasury, while the Treasurer (Mr. Holt) has agreed to consider this submis sion when the 1964-65 Budget is being drawn up. The submission brought out in April of this year is aimed at removing the deficiencies and anomalies in the relevant Income Tax and Social Services Act by seek ing taxation concessions for expenditure on education. Six types of concessions have been sought: 1. To allow for the deduction of personal education ex penses paid by students. 2. An increase in the amount of deduction allowable for tertiary education expenses. 3. To remove the present age limit (less than 21 years) in respect of the deduc tion for education expenses and maintenance allowance for students. 4.

NATIONAL NEWS No Conference for an All White Australia [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
NATIONAL NEWS No Conference for an All White Australia AUSTRALIA was rejected as the venue for this year's International Student Conference because of jhe White Australia Policy and poor treat ment of aborigines.
