Radical Changes in National Union Are Possible Soon [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Radical Changes in National Union Are Possible Soon SHOULD N.U.A.U.S. drop the 'U' and become a national union of tertiary rather than purely university students? This was one of the most hotly debated questions at the last Council meeting of the National Union, due to the application by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Tech nology to become a member of N.U.A.U.S. Although their admission was finally rejected, their participation in the Union's activities was invited and the matter will be further discussed at the August Council meeting. The application by the R.M.I.T. raised a general prob lem that N.U.A.U.S. must find an answer to: namely, should we broaden our membership to bring in other tertiary stu dents as have the national unions of Britain, Canada and a number of other countries? As technology becomes more important, technological insti tutions such as the R.M.I.T. and that projected for Sydney must necessarily come to play a far more important . role than they do in the pr...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
I ? editorial I In what is only its second year of independence from the S.R.C., the Sports Union is now facing a ; severe crisis. Its authority is being seriously ques- i ; tioned and its influence and prestige is declining rapidly. 'Tliis crisis has been provoked as much, by | the bungling and short-sightedness of its own Exec utive as by the well-directed pressure brought to bear upon from outside. i a a vAar tliA TlncTi Wfllkers. Rock Climbers and Speleos applied for affiliation ; to the Sports Union. The rock climbers were accept- , ed; the other two were not. Then, at a later general meeting at which the Speleos and bush walkers were unusually well represented, they forced their affiliation. The latest development was seen at the recent | A.G.M., at which a new set of regulations was passed, disaffiliating all three groups. The new criterion for membership is a list of sports recog nised by A.U.S.A. This list has proved very convenient for the. Sports Council, as it now elimin...
RUGBY FORM FIZZLES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
RUGBY FORM FIZZLES The early strains of optimism evident In the A.N.U. Rugby Club ai the beginning ot the seasou arc fast disappearing following .several convincing Bosses. Following a win a/rainst I Cooma and a loss to Royals,1 Uni made better use of back line chances to soundly de feat Ainslie, In this match, the forwards were surprising ly held to an even tussle by the Ainslie pack and solid de fence halted many backline moves but two slicing runs by Chris Manning, and onc- by Alan Kaye resulted in tries to 'Jacko' Kevans, In the Uni's last two mat ches, they have been soundly beaten by Queanbeyan and R.M.C despite a major share of the ball in both matches. The backs have not been able to penetrate, although this is ton particularly surprising against Queanbeyan who have always been known for solid defence. Apart from the early l opportunist try scored by ' Chris Manning, only one other team has succeeded jsi I crossing Queanbeyan's line j this year. The highlight of -j the Quean...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Sir, I was surprised and rather appalled at the report 011 the coyer page o£ WORONI today con cerning the question of the affiliation of denominational colleges in the Australian National: University. The great headlines claim 'students and staff refused say over Chwch colleges'. This 1* completely untrue, tl The matter has been discussed 1 both in the University Staff Association and -in' a general meeting of the Students' Asso ciation, though I understand ' that the question was raised ' without notice at the latter meeting. Then in addition to this, both the staff and stu dents of this ' University are represented, on its governing body and are always in a posi tion to express staff and stu dent opinion, if there is ' any declared opinion on a particu lar subject. Nor do- I accept the state ment that student opinion 'was brushed aside on the initial question of denomina tional colleges'. I believe that at the general meeting of the Student Association a...
AUSTRALIAN RULES Three Losses But Uni Shaping Well [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
& AUSTRALIAN RULES pwiwwmii ii naMwwy— mm— Tire® losses lit Uni Shaping Weil Uni's first grade Australian Rules side has lost its last three matches but is favour ed to make the final four. Uni had earlier recorded con vincing victories over Quean beyan — 10.20 (80) to 9.7 (61) — and R.M.C. — 18.19 (127) to 7.10 (52). The three losses have been to Eastlake, Manuka and Acton, who are the three likely semi-finalists. UnJ stfll has to play Ains lie and Turner in the first series of home-and-away fix tures. On present form, Uni should have little trouble with Turner but will prob ably have a hard match with Ainslie, who seem to be Unl's most serious rivals for the fourth semi-final position. Newcomers, Jclbart, Gar naut. Brown and Knight have proved to be valuable ac . quisitions. Of last year's players, Green is playing out standing football, and, along with McPherson, is proving a real stumbling block for op. position ofrwards. Lambert and Meagher have also been turning in goo...
S.R.C. Grants Inequality Rampant [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
S.M.C. Currants Inequality I Rampant On Sunday, May 10, the S.R.C. held what will prob ably be onc of the most sig nificant meetings cd the forthcoming year. On the seven hour session over three quarters of the afternoon was devoted to consideration granted to Clubs and Societies, Actual financial consider ations were prefaced by two important motions both aim ed at tightening Council con trol over these Societies. The first of these was that grants for Clubs and Societies' functions and activities be paid only when D. C. S. is satisfied that these will ac tually take place. It was felt that this policy of C.OD was necessary in the light of the tight 1964 budget As Clubs and Societies had pre viously applied for grants for functions which have never eventuated. . Tlie oilier toughening up motion , was that no grant be made to a Club and Society until it has fulfilled all tlie requirements of the Affiliated Clubs and Societies' Regulat ions. This was obviously prompted by the failure...

SPORTS UNION GETS ANOTHER QUID Intome Now Equals S.R.C Immediately after as smiling control the new Soorts Union Executive ilias shown that it means ibusiuess. Working; on the tested principle of asking for twice as much as they expected, a mo tion was presented ask ing for an increase of iwo pounds, it* the Sports Union fees. .

STUDENTS NOW ON THE MOVE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
STUDENTS NOV# ON THE MOVE Australian Overseas Student Travel (A.O.S.T.) is a fast expanding department of N.U.A.U.S., and the latest for students on the move. Four years ago, a small party of Australian students visited India and paved the way for what has become an annual excursion. Last year, eighty students spent their long vacation in India. They went to Japan for the first time. This year, pilot groups will go to Malay sia and the Philippines as well. The idea behind the scheme is to give the average Aus tralian Uni. student a chance to travel with student groups at concession rates, and to learn about an Asian country and its people through per sonal contact. The student must pay for most of the trip himself, but his itinerary is arranged to give him every opportunity to get more than his money's worth . . . provided he is in terested in mixing and meet ing with all sorts of people and does not mind roughing it occasionally. Home stays, where students live as a member of a hos...
OUR SPORTING AMBASSADORS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
OUR SPORTING AMBASSADORS Acts of irresponsibility and vandalism have marred the Inter- Varsity Rules and Shooting carnivals in Perth. On the flights to Perth, 'representatives' of the East ern States. — tore curtains from their fixtures, — ground cigarette butts j MllU IU£ — smashed drinking glass es, — molested tho hostesses. In Perth, delegates to an Australian Dental Congress walked out of the hotel where Victorian, South Aust ralian and N.S.W. footballers were staying.

They were later released after apologising, — - a smashed juke box, and — nude swimming in the bay in front of the hotel. Civil Aviation . officials warned the students of the penalties of further misbe haviour on the way home and provided a police guard of honour at the airport.

New Research Grants to benefit Students [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
New Research Grants to benefit Students OF all the research conducted in a university perhaps the most important type is in the field of education. It is one of the most important from the point of view of direct and lifelong benefits to all members of our community. In modern Australian society every person is required to attend school until at least the age of 14 (15 in some States), and a larger proportion of the population is continuing on to tertiary level than before. Education can be said to be the basic (although often the most intangible) underlying service that the Government renders to its electors. ? N.U.A.U.S. has for over three years pursued a policy of awarding education re search grants annually. Dur ing this time, the Faculties of Education at Queensland University, New England University, the Education Research Unit of the N.S.W. University and several stu dent run projects have bene fited from this scheme. The Education Research Grants for 1964 are: — 1. Messrs. W...
SPELEOS OUT AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
SPELEOS OUT AGAIN At the recent Sports Council A.G.M. the Bush Walkers, Rock Climbers - and the Speleological Society were disaffiliated. This was done by adopting a list of sports recognised by A.U.S.A, as the new criterion for local Sports Onion affiliation. As this issue has been the ? cause of much controversy -Voroni sent a list of relevant questions to both the Speleos ( nud the ' president of the' S»ports Council. . Below are the answers sup plied by the ^Speleos. Unfor tunately the Sporis Council president could not find time to reply. Q, Do you feel that a jaiajority vote was' the best; ' method of deciding this issue? A. Such a far-reaching r _ Wove should ccrtainly have required more than a simple Majority. Actually, this con ?'

Australian Delegation for New Guinea [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Australian Delegation for New Guinea A DELEGATION of four Australian university students will tour the territory of Papua and New Guinea for a period of three weeks in August of this year. The delegation is being sent by the National Union of Australian University Students and is planned as a follow-up to a similar delegation which visited the territory in August of 1963. The purpose of this year's delegation is to broaden the contacts which have already been made between the stu dents of Australian and those in New Guinea and also to give assistance to the stu dents of the territory in the formation of their own representative student groups which will, in all probability* eventually form the basis of a National Union of Stu dents of the territory. The delegation which will be representative of a number of Australian Universities will visit Port Moresby, Lae, Madang, Bougainville, Goroka, Rabaul, as well as other cen tres. In each of the places which it visits, the delegation will ...
Inter-Varsity Debating Festival [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Inter-Varsity Debating Festival Coupled with the many tasks involved in organising a Festival with about 40 par ticipants and up to 13 or 16 debates, all within a week, is the particularly onerous problem of finance. Intervarsity Debates is run by N.U.A.U.S. who denotes towards costs £100 and a sub sidy for some participants' fares. The luckless organiser then has a balance, which this year could be as much as £350, to find. A levy of £15 on each team will raise £150 or so. For the residue a scrounge of Tasmanian busi nesses has been made. Three firms have so far donated between them £65, and with a few smaller gifts, £100 is in sight. The big cost is accommoda tion. The host University is responsible entirely for this and at a 25/- per head per day minimum up to £300 could be involved in 1964. Thus a cheap Festival for the Debaters and N.U. can be a costly business for the organisers. Plans have proceeded well in Hobart for provision of ad judicators, publicity, accom modation, etc...
