"THEY'RE COMING" To B.B. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
'THEY'RE COMING' | To B.B. ! ' In trenches of mud, secreta and rats !; Men in mud-spattered coats - , ? ? Clench their rifles and pull down their hats As bullets hit th6 bags of sand. ; A man, in tlie dark, yells 'Hell! They're coming' And men fall and die In the horror of no-man's land. 1 !' i Behind walls, topped with barb-wire | i White men with dogs and guns Look down the road to a fire , They are quiet and tense behind the walls; A fat man drops his fag and yells 'Steady, boys; they're coming' ; And with a rattle of pistal shots Down the road a black man falls. SAM LAKE ; Wind- torn pines stand as green blots '' On the only hill of the plain ' The pines mark where the dead are laid ; lust one mile south of the town This hill is the final sanctuary Of those who toiled and went down. , The town is three generations old ?

LITERATURE AND ALL THAT... [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
LITERATURE and all that . Ibis page is the first of what we hope will become a regular feature of Woroni. It is intended to unify what has so far been a series of self-conscious scribblings into an organised and regular form of expression. This week we are emphasising the work of Sam Lake, who has for many years been one of the leading student writers in this University. Conceived from a soft mistake In the wandering of d woman , Foetal cells in profusion lie Going on to form and multiply. What has to be jus.tly done Is illegal unto the law And the forces of a religion Immoral is the arrived decision. Time can be such a vivid limitation For money has to be raised This hushed matter can build despair Unless courage- is always there. We live in a celebrated system Of all modem, easy comforts But still abortion is- barred In face of people's right demand. SAM LAKE
Short Story [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
gmsmimiiiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii: [Short Storyl ft appeared to be almost significant that when Steve had been through a period of ribald fessskenness and parties; upon reaching the stage o'l exhaustion and stateness or upon running out o; money, he would at the last moment review Mmsdf and go fishing. Yandygunala Creek was about one and a half hours H way from his home in Leyson, It _ was a small crccJr, flowing westward from the jagged Cullarin Range- to meet the sprauling Mariana River. In spite of its smallness, for Steve it was adequate, the trout were small and plentiful, the bush relatively un touched, the water invigor euingly clear. This Sunday was one _ of those days of resuscitation. He had ar rived early in the afternoon. The scooter: was left on top o i a stark, Bald hill aind he had walked about^a^ mile through the open bush to the cfoek. A rather cold breeze was blowing; the sun shone stark over the valley. The creek changed direction .rap...
The Gazelle [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
The Gazelle Every year in New York when the dew in the morn ings becomes a ' hard crystal frost Edmond Brooks began to think of taking the animals from the zoo into ihe warmer cold-weather quaiters. First he would take tlie animals from the tropical regions in side and a little later the hardier exhibits. Then the zoo would close for three months. Edmond had been doing this for thirty-nine years and would probably have to do it for another fifteen until regulations forced him to retire on a . pension. Then he would have to sit in a cane wicker chair and watch pot-plants and himself vegetate. For Edmond was a '' — bachelor and had no one. Even in his tenement he had no friends, they all hated him because he somehow felt he didn't belong, .that he was just a little better and quieter than the usual type of people who lived there. In a life that Edmond had grown accustomed to there was only one moment that he thought of beforehand. This was at five o'clock each afternoon when the- midd...
BOOZE BEFORE BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
BOOZE BEFORE BUSINESS At the inaugural meeting of the S.R.C. the only item 'amended' in the proposed budget for 1964-65 was the increase of the S.R.C. 'Gen- eral Entertainment Allow ance' by £30 to £100. The increase it was alleaed. was to cater for the increased size of the new S.R.C. Whilst this apparent apathy may have been the result of a particularly elaborate bud get prepared by 'Scrooge' Hartnell, we wonder whether this is the best way to relieve the headaches of the future, j — HAG.
DR. INGLIS MONOPOLY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
DR. INDUS MONOPOLY On the last Wednesday of term the Liberal Club sponsored an excellent doc umentary talk by Dr. Inglis on the takeover of the 'Canberra Times'. Obviously having taken an active interest in Austra lian journalism ior a num ber of years, Dr. Inglis spoke well on such ques tions as 'How good was the old Times?'— to what extent it had been a national news paper and what its future ?wag likely to be under the new owners. Regrettably, however, Dr. Inglis brushed very lightly over the political issues of the takeover. In a lecture organised by a political club and advertised by banners of 'Monopoly Rampant', that the implications of the spread of monopoly and the possible restriction of free expression would be tho roughly dealt with. Instead, the lecture was of more in terest to budding journalists than politicians. It is impossible to believe that a man of Dr. Inglis' ability was not aware of these political issues, in that he had nothing of signifi cance to say on them...
Filipino Debating Success [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Filipino Debating Success THE dust has hardly settled from the rush of j.e recent visit to Aus tralia of the Philippines Universities' Debating jteam in its successful bid to capture the Chester Wilmot Trophy from -s. In the space of a little over three weeks, the Filipinos visit- ' ed every State, took, part in ten debates, of which they won eight (against Western Aus tralia, Adelaide, Tasmania, Monash, Australian National University, New South Wales and two combined Australian teams at Newcastle and Syd ney) and lost two (against Melbourne and Sydney), and lett with the trophy in their hands. Ail debates were fought out in Oregan style, which differs greatly from the Oxford style, as is used at our own intervarsity festival, in that it includes cross examination of speakers by (he other side and a second rebuttal speech by all speak ers as well as the main ad dress. In this style of debat ing the Australian team found themselves in hot water, es pecially when under the skillful cr...
SEEKING WISDOM (PINCHED FROM "PELICAN") [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
SEEKING WISDOM (PINCHED FROM ' PEUCAM ') Have you mob given any thought to the fu ture? After thinking about that tricky bit between child endowment and the old age pension, I've decidcd that I'm not going to be ait engine^ driver after all. I'm going to be a surfie. I suppose that this sounds I a bit funny (you'll find .better surfers amongst the natives of the Ayers Rock area) but that was what the vocation al guidance man said. I made a bit of a slip there. I was actually after some vocational guidance but I wandered into a travel bur-, eau by mistake. . . This interest in surfing has been handed down in our family from my great grand father. I know you haven't seen many great grandfathers out surfing. This one did all his surfing about eighty years before he became my great grandfather. If he'd known how things were going to turn out he would probably have stuck to surfing. Actually he wasn't too good at it. In Hawaii they still talk about the time he was swimming at Makaha beac...
AUSTRALIAN ACTION ON SOUTH AFRICAN RACISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
AUSTRALIAN ACTION ON SOUTH AFRICAN RACISM IN February, at its Annual Council Meeting at Monash University, N.U.A.U.S. decided its policy on Apartheid. N.U.A.U.S. decided to institute an anti-Apartheid campaign in Australia in order to inform the public of the situation in South Africa and the dangers of such a system as Apartheid. N.U.A.U.S. declared its opposition to tours of Aus tralia by representatives of South African organisations which exercise racial dis crimination in their pro cedures for selection of such representatives of South Africa. The South African Test cricket team which visited Aus tralia recently was an example of such discrimination. As a matter of policy, coloured cricketers were ex cluded from the team. Stu dents demonstrated at airports when the team arrived and at cricket grounds during matches. It should be . emphasised that the . demonstrations were not directed at the team as individ uals .but as representatives of a racial authoritarian govern ment. It ...
Your New Editors [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Your New Editors As a change of editorship has recently occurred at the end of first term, we feel It desirable to outline the edi torial policy of tlie new re gime. The present printing ar rangements mean a delay of a whole week between the time it leaves our hands and when it finally reaches the students. This means that straight news items, however vital at the time of writing, tend to read like a Short History of the, A.N.U. As we see it, the only splu tion is to present comment on the news, rather than cold, hard facts which even the. most insular/and apathetic student is aware of a week after the event. This method of course has its problems: bias will be un avoidable, and only one side of the case will be presented. However, as long as we can prevent the facts from being distorted, we do not consider this undesirable in our Uni versity. A slanted article will at least produce a reaction. If it is signed, prefaced by a para graph outlining the facts, and if we are willing to p...
Large Asian Growth Needs Action [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Large Asian Growth Needs Action THE first Asian students to come to Australia arrived here in 1 946. A small group of Malaysian students taking a wide variety of courses, and all privately financed, they pioneered Asian student migration to Australia, and their numbers have increased rapidly since then. Today there are nearly twelve thousand overseas students in this country, ninety per cent, of whom are priv ate students. The large number of over seas students, their widely differing spheres of study, and their varied national backgrounds, add up to a unique and complex human problem. Apart from the normal academic problems, they are faced in many cases with language difficulties and moreover, confronted with an entirely novel and confusing set of conventions, customs and habits which they must conform to if they are to win social acceptance in their new country. The problem is a real one — a fact that is often not appreciated by those who have not exper ienced it. Although some st...
TASMANIAN RACIAL PROBLEM: CAPE BARREN ISLAND [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
T ASM AN I AN RACIAL PROBLEM: CAPE BARREN ISLAND By HEATHER MEREDITH NO longer is Tasmania the Australian State without an aboriginal problem. We have unearthed, for better or worse, a situation which requires immediate attention. About fiftv miles off the North-Eastern tip of Tas mania lies a small island which, if seen on a glorious summer's day, faintly re sembles Paradise. The water surrounding the glistening white beaches and craggy mountain tops is a gleaming blue-green, abound ing in fish of all kinds. The island is a sportsman's para dise where kangaroo, fish and birds can be caught at' will. This is Cape Barren Island, visited in early April of this year by three members of 'Togatus', the editor, Tunku Aziz, the assistant editor, David Brownlow, and myself.. But all is not light on this abandoned Paradise, with its old-world atmosphere which makes one expect to see a horse and buggy or a penny farthing bicycle appear. The people are discontented. The island is abandoned, bu...
Comm. Scholarships—Major Changes Due [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
Comm. Scholarships Major Changes Due JUST over twenty per cent, of students in Australian Universities are assisted by the Commonwealth Scholarship Scheme; it is thus the largest single form of tertiary scholarship in our country. The scheme started in 1951 when a total of 6,500 awards were made, and by 1962, just on 19,500 scholars had completed their courses under it. N.U.A.U.S. has long been associated with this scheme and can claim to be one of the needles that helped stimulate the initia tion of it in the late 1940's. Since then, every twelve months or so, N.U.A.U.S. places a submission before the Commonwealth Scholar ships Board seeking improve ments in the benefits to recipients. The State Education De partments administer the scheme under the guidance of the Commonwealth Scholarship Board composed of the Direc tors of the Commonwealth Office of Education (Chairman of the Board) and three per sons appointed by the Prime Minister 'for a three-year term. The Board makes recomme...
NEW VIGOUR IN DRAMA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 June 1964
NEW VIGOUR IN DRAMA EACH year N.U.A.U.S. sponsors the Australian Universities Drama Festival whose aim is to bring together theatre groups from all Aus tralian Universities for joint participation in the production of plays and seminars, etc., aimed at improving university theatre generally. This year it is to be held at Melbourne University and is being organised by Mr. Sig Jorgensen. After the performance of each play, a seminar is held and all of the delegates are encouraged to attend so that constructive criticism may be given and received. These are as important and can be as rewarding as the per . formance itself. Until last year the Seminars were held on the morning fol lowing the play but poor at tendance prompted Sydney to' hold them directly after the performance and 1 Melbourne is expected to follow this lead. In 1961 Tasmania intro duced an Intervarsity Revue to the Festival and although Perth were unable to organise a similar display of university satire the idea was re...

On Going To Bed With Poetry [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
On Going To Bed With Poetry You He asleep my darling, your head in my lap. Have you ever noticed how people change facial expression when looking down upon them? By the time you realise it however they lie stretched out in their coffins. 1 am safe. I can hear yo.ur stomach growling. Do not move. Of course you aren't heavy. I've been rotten to you today. A right down misery. You under stand poets you say? That is a bare excuse. Ah! To behave poetically that is different. That is the right of . the whole animal king dom. The lion swings its testicles, the eagle writhes on the mountain top. Don't our eyes wet at the sight of a dying, sparrow? But whose eyes would fill with tears when meeting a dying poet? That most poets writing to day are dead already is little consolation. At least they won't be creating any con fusion. Their complete works will merely be their tombstones. Yes, why not, peel me an orange. So long as it is not a banana. I realise it does not look like a banana, but wh...
BASEBALL the story of the season [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
WMIAAAftAAAAAftftftMAiMWIAJIM*iy|JMIMMWUUUWUUUW BASEBALL the story of the season 1 G In a most inauspicious debut, the baseball club has yet to win a match. The story of the club this year has been one of latent poten tial ; which, unfortunately, stayed latent. . At the beginning of the season it was thought that the hard core of experien ced players.— Rave, Dry nan, .Patterson, Ramus and Harding — would be. able to lift the recruits a.nd make a competent 'A' grade combination. Unfortun ately, tJthis did not come about. Until the last- two matches, ho .-improvement at all was evident in the recruits, despite the high level of keenness maintain ed. Worse- the older play ers, far from lifting the side, became / increasingly, erratic and uninspiring. A common level' was reached all right — at the . .bottom base. . ^Jrhe 'A' grade ' competi should not have prov ed too high — ; several' times the team has reached, a winning position, but has been unable to keep pres sure on.
