STUDENTS-ACTIVITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1952
STUDENTS - ACTIVITIES ' One of the most pressing problems of the 'Canberra . University College, when compared -with universities in other States, is the lack of sporting facilities. This will be remedied, no doubt, when we have our own build ings and grounds. Unfortunately these far-off visions are not available to present day students - so we have to do the best we can. TENNIS. Many students have approached us with the idea of forming a Tennis Club.' The College has been offered the use of a very good court. Soy let's know if you are . . : interested. ? ' - SKI-ING. The icy blasts blowing straight from ? Mt . Franklin have turned many a student's fancy to thoughts of ski-ing. Recent enquiries from students have indicated that the Canberra University College may be able to organize a Ski Club with frequent trips to the snow during the present season. 7 Another element of university life which students ? ?? ' feel is lacking in Canberra is regular meetings of kindred spirits for the...
S.R.C. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1952
S.R.C. In each issue of 'WORONI' we. shall give a brief 'report of the S.R.C*, meetings and the decisions of the ; Council® _? GENERAL MEETING, 2*+th March. The following constitutional amendments were passed, - They are being submitted for the College Council1 s approval® (a) that the College be given power to collect the Students1 Association Fees at the beginning of each year. This will enable vou to tell the S.R.C. just how you wish these fees used. - ? (b) that the position on the S.R.C. held by a repre sentative of the College Council be abolished. This action was requested by the College authorities. Does this mean that our . S.R.C will have no basis for a claim (which has been peddle-pushed by some ardent supporters for years) for Student Representa tion on the College Council??? N.U.A.U.S?

SPORTING HIGHLIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 May 1952
SPORTING HIGHLIGHTS With the Cricket Season now over and the College having once again proved its superiority in winning the Sub District Division to which it has finally been relegated, it may not be out of place at this juncture to place on record the dissatis faction felt by the College Sports Council at the treatment which for some years now has been handed out to its cricketers - , by the A.C.T. Cricket Association. While the Council is well aware that the policy of the Association is to promote District Cricket, it should be pointed out that such a policy is not without precedent; on the contrary District Cricket is the order of the day in every Australian State. At the same time, however, it is not unusual to find in the various States university teams playing in all grades, such treatment being the accepted policy of controlling bodies who welcome university participation without the usual battle which year after year confronts the Canberra College in its dealings with the l...

TO TEA OR NOT TO . TEA ' A Small Contribution - and a Plea. This is called CUPS - and TEA,' - ? ? .- ? Gentlemen, I wish to bring up a small matter. ' I say. 'Gentlemen' , because I feel this applies to you. Cups.' - 'Do you know anything about them?' - I guess you do - Oh No.' I don't mean the kind, you win - I mean the -ones you drink out of. White china ones which are placed on white' china saucers - they are by no means 'fine' but certainly serve 'their purposes. .' . Are you perchance a connoisseur of tea? Do you '?partake of this luxury (for, I may -add here, it now: is one) 'in the Junior Common Room? If you have any sense you will - r if for no other reason but to warm the inner' man. Your tea finished, you talk, then with no thought for the. ordina ry things of life , you leave, I see some white cups - they have served their purpose and are empty. What do I see them sitting on? - forgotten - alone? Not on the sink, but on the tables in the Junior Common Room,' This is a sin...
DOLCE FAR NIENTE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 July 1952
DOLCE FAR NIENTE ? ' In the last issue of 'Woro;ni' we' had a suggestion list, requesting- students to indicate their interest in the f ormat ion of pertain Clubs. Out -of the' 3 00 odd copie s distri buted, only-five such, list s were- returned; four came from ? Ebenezer Plumblebott orn, Fo'o, Charlie Twiddlewitch and Sluggo, Charlie said 'Wipe the lot and give us Jane Russell'-. Fo'o said, !'I could :' make -some suggestions'. We .wish he would.' Seriously, though, when the S.R.C. makes an attempt to help students form such Clubs and .the response is so poor, it makes us wonder.' The College has before it the prefix 'University'. Admittedly, the principle aim of such an in stitution is the furtherance of education, but take away the host of extra-curricula activities from a REAL University and the educational aim would stand like a shag on, a rock. I am not casting any reflection on the College authorities or the College Council. Some contenders may claim that a University should ...

THE PRESIDENT SPEAKS Geoff. Manna 11 (Secretary, S.R.C.) and I called on the Secretary of the Queensland University Union during last vac. The Union headquarters are in the old University buil dings. The lawns around them reflected the hue of our faces when we saw Union headquarters, which are in a hut used durirg the last' war to house, naval personnel. .They have' four big rooms - light and airy, though probably hot. in Brisbare summers, and (believe it or not) a. permanent paid staff of four, com-' prising a Treasurer and three typists. . The ^ University of Queensland 'is gradually moving to it s^new^ location at St 0 Lucia and the wall of the President's office is acorned with a large blue print of the new Union Headquarters which will, the.y hope, be built .some day.'
