HOCKEY No Practice—No Wins [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
% HOCKEY No Practice-No Wins So far, 1 964 has been a relatively poor season for the Men's Hockey Club. The only bright point to date was the selection of Ian Gossip and Chris Rawlinson in the A.C.T. Colts side, which did extremely -well ? in the State Championships. In recent weeks the A1 team has given the top teams a lot of trouble and could easily be victorious in many of its , remaining, matches. . Captain George Meehan. has inspired the team and only inexperience prevent-, ed a draw or win against competition leadex-s, Cen^ tral last Saturday. Our forward line, has played exteremely well in .the last two matches.' and has been ably backed-up by a, strong half line. The fullbacks,, .however, are too often caught out of posi tion', allowing the opposi tion easy chances to score! Failure to play the stan dard? side and side tech-, nique appears to be the trouble here. One of the backs never .appears at practice and he could be the .culprit. . The //.other* - teams have rather dis...

BLUES UNDO CORDIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
BLUES UNDO CORDIES After indifferent form in our last two matches Uni. played constructive footbal to defeat R.M.C. at Duntroon. This was a game in which every player was determined to do his best. From the first bounce the keen Uni. side attacked and from that point on never allowed the game to slip from its control. The game was hampered by an inconsistent display by the central umpire. In the first half we were playing from behind and often trailing in the race ? for the ball. * We played in bursts, . but overall were doing slightly better than tho home .team and held , a one point advantage at the interval. Mick Meagher was doing many useful things as he tried to deliver the ' ball accurately. Understand ably,' Andrew Green was not at his top after missing ' a couple of matches, but his robust play livened - the backline. He received a bad decision against when contesting a , mark — this resulted in a R.M.C. goal. To his/credit he did not ' allow this to Wory him un duly and he ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I am utterly incredulous and, of course, greatly disappointed at the S.R.C.'s decision to replace W.U.S./ ABSCHOL. by a local charity in the Bush Week collection. When people undertake to do' things with you and you undertake to do other things in return; when you honour your part 'of the undertakings to the. best of your' abilities; and then, suddenly, you are; informed, without any consultation or warning, that those people won't be in it any more; when you're . already in it irrevocably and 1 up 'to your neck, it leaves you very saddened indefed. I am very saddened -in this way by the S.R.C.'s de cision and, no matter how much I try, cannot under stand or sympathise ? with the reasons for it or th.e procedures they adopted; Whether the first decision or the second 'decision the S.R.C.' made was reached on the soundest 'grounds is now quite beside the- point. The first decision entailed obligations and responsibili ties which they now com pletely fail to reco...
THE JOYS OF THE INNOCENTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
THE JOYS OF THE INNOCENTS There was once a shrewd weaver, who, in consequence of illness, became deaf; but who nevertheless retained the full use of his wits. He was married to a good and virtuous wife, but for all the great affection he had for her, he often gave his female neighbours what belonged to her. Now, the wife's younger sister lived with the couple and, although very attractive, she was. nonetheless -very lazy. The weaver fell in love with her, but fear, ing his wife, he often scolded her, saying her laziness should be cured by the wife's beat ing her. ?*: To celebrate the . Inno cents' Day, it. was custom-, ary to beat ' the children - to . reniind them of-, the 'terrible slaughter,, but since .the' . couple'4had no. children, -the weaver suggested - that the .beating should be carried out on the' young sister and that he in fact should do the beating. .

FOLK SINGING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
FOLK SINGING Dear Sirs, The general level of Mr. Land's article, 'The Ab surdity of Folk-Singing' (Woroni June 23), is set by the introductory statement that folk-singing is a 'fad' of the last few years. Ad mittedly, folk -music has become removed from its natural -backgrounds and is! now a multilateral practice ; on the one hand an art, and on - the other an entertain ment; but I can assure. .Mr. Land that the 'more intel ligent , sector of. the ' com munity' has not .fallen vic tim to the commercialist promotion or the pathetic 'mob-enthusiasm.' . As a-' cultural ..fad, ? it not only appeals to. the intellec tuals - ? (both : genuine and fake) , but it is historically an . art, and it cannot be I dissociated Avith- social his- l tory. . Mr. Land -refuses to recog nise .the fact that; interest in folk-music dates back to : thtf -folk-lorists of the 19^h century. Surely F. J. Child's live-volume anthology, 'The English and Scottish Popu lar Ballads' was not -writ-, ten to meet the ...

The . sect wmcn advocates ab solute purity;. absolute unselfishness and absolute honesty. The / recent series of events has indicated that the sect is certainly not honest, nor unselfish. The play 'Out of the Shadow' which came to Canberra has been some thing about which M.R.A. has been deliberately dis honest and deceptive. This play was accepted purely on its merits by the Australian Overseas Stu dents' Association a- . few months ago who agreed to sponsor: the play. .Not a word .about M.R.A. To the ' surprise , of A.O.S.A., M.R.A. pamphlets appeared , at one of the per formances of the- play' in Melbourne..

BASKETBALL SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
BASKETBALL SUCCESS Last week-end was one of great jubilation for the University Women's Basketball Club, when Uni. I completed the first round of matches unde feated. At the. beginning' of the season Uni. I had to strug gle to win its matches,1 but following the experience gained at Intervarsity ~ in May, the Uni. play has im proved considerably and the latter half of round one presented -.no real problem. One unfortunate result of this success has been a marked slide in the general teamwork on the court. In / the . recent ? match against the Magpies, the form of the A.N.U. slipped badly. Although a . vic tory, this match was won mainly ? on the poor ? goal thro-ving of the opposition who exposed a; number . of weaknesses in our team. The .passing, in particular, ; was often ill-directed, es- 1 ' pecially on high ' passes where our opponents suc cessfully .intercepted on ; too many occasions.- ; | Until such -weaknesses j can be' eradicated'; -the team | will not hit many high f 'sp...
ATHLETICS GOOD PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
-t®? ATHLETICS r // GOOD PROSPECTS May this year saw the inception of the A.N.U. Amateur Athletics Club. Formed in a hastily pre pared inaugural meeting, the club's constitution was drawn up and office bearers elected. It was to formalize the consti tution in its final form at a later meeting. ?A team of eight athletea competed for the A.N.U. at the I.V. carnival, and the small but keen team . per formed creditably for their first competition. This team it is hoped will be .the first of many to compete at Intervarsity. ' A team is now being formed to compete in the 'Intervarsity cross country in. Sydney- on August 22, and it is hoped to field a ?strong team' of A.N.U. run ners, now. that the Club is functioning fully. ?

NEW BUSH WEEK CHARITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
NEW BUSH WEEK CHARITY 'W.U.5. sold out At its last meeting the S.R.C. reversed its previous policy stand with regard to the charities selected to benefit from the forthcoming bush week. Jeremy Firth, the ; strong I mail behind this policy change, said that by tak ing two University- chari ties such as New Guinea Scholarships * and- s W:U;S;/. Abschol the nett bush week takings -would 'drop by be tween £300-£500. 'We can't afford, to do this,' he said; 'I have discussed this at length with some members of the .bush' week commit tee and it is felt that the public will not give the same amount as they would for a: more well-known and general' charity.';'; ? - Following' this, -statement and a- few too -'many : woTds; : by Bob - Arthur, /the1- council i seemed prepared to con sider changing the present situation.' After deciding that a two-thirds majority was necessary to re-commit this topic, the problem then arose as to which charities were to be -retained and which 'were ? to be adop...

orientals on the breadline? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 9 July 1964
orientals on the breadline? In an unprecedented move in this University, the Oriental Studies Society has pre sented a report to its faculty on the present working and need for reform of the present course. The report, compiled after several months of work, can be said to represent. . views of the majority of the O.S. Students. The report begins by dis- ( : tinguishing the two main ?' motives for academic en deavour — the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, and to provide people with qualifications for a practi cal; job in life. After ex pressing confidence . in the - faculty ' and staff ' for their academic standards, it then ? goes on -to recommend that ''further . emphasis should be placed on makingiour ^ cours es have more practical ap plication' in ; relatioii to ob taining jobs in the outside world.' Here, at once, is the main issue. At the root of mo5t O.S. trouble in the past has been the differ ent conception held by students and staff on the future vocation of a gradu a...
