THE GREAT ONES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
THE GREAT ONES Dear Sir, It was with interest and amusement that I read your recent editorial on the fas-, cinating ' subject of 'Fresh- ers.':''- I gather from the general tone of the article that you are not a fresher,., so you are undoubtedly in a,* better position to judge our calibre than fresher would be. ? Your 'possibly apt descrip tion of us — 'self-conscious, mediocre, pimple-faced little' swots,' if -I remember cor rectly ' — is, however, mere destructive criticism. Since quite a number of . freshers; either, through circumstances oiv inclination are not on particularly intimate terms: with University. personal.-: ities, I do think s you could give us more constructive ' help. ? ' \ . ' What I had in mind was a small section of 'Woroni.' set' aside for 'a 'Personality1 of the Week' feature, where the ignoramuses 'among us could- read 'a-, brief: summary of the .Great One's activit ies at the A.N.U. (with exam marks, too, please-- — the subject could remain anony mous, if ...
LITTLE MINDS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
LITTLE MINDS Dear Sir, - I applaud your comment on the 'Inertia in this Uni ' versity?'. However, it seems -' rather unfair that it should be* directed ? specifically ? against the. freshers. Your ' obviously heart-felt plea — ? ''do -something !' is all very. enlightening but just what are we supposed- to do? At . the moment, many freshers V' are showing a definite- in- .' ; terest' in faculty societies, . . J.C.R.C. meetings, Sports Council Meetings, . etc' — . they even dare to get . up on their hind legs and speak their 'mediocre' little minds. Surely .this is- sufficient in first year! We poor freshers are only, just finding our feet in a new environment. Are we supposed to set the Uni Versity . by the ears as soon : .as we arrivie? . - You seem to forget that it . ? i. is not the sensationalist, 'look-at-me-aren't I Won ; tlerful? People who are nec essarily the 'personalities.' ? - The freshers have only just got here and are attempting . to unravel university poli tics (a ma...

Bush Week Plans Announced [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
Bush Week Plans Announced Following a bushweek meeting last Monday night, various vague plans have now formed into concrete proposals. The following list gives a compre hensive survey of organised bushweek activity. ★ THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 30: Record breaking attempts start in the Mall. These will be a record poetry reading attempt and an atempt to establish a record for bicycling on the spot. ★ FRIDAY: A special edition of Woroni and a satirical* magazine as well as other suspicious publications will appear. In order to fleece the local flock Bill Kitchen is seeking a large team of sellers. If you can help, see Bill as soon as possible. On Friday night it is hoped to hold a jam sess ionin Garenia Place.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pimples and all that.. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pimples and all that. . Sir, ? I would like to support wholehearted ly your last editorial, particularly with re spect to Science students. It is sadly true, however, that the description 'pimple faced little swats,' extends strongly to second year students as well as freshers. Mv. remarks are inspired mainly, by the Science din ? ner which was attended by ? a mere 43 of- the 200-odd full-time students in . the Faculty, v : Typical of the endless excuses given to ticket sellers were ' I can't afford, the time' , (one - night _ in second term), 'I haven't enough -money'- (while : lighting- :a cigarette) ? 'Tm not interested in Science -dinners' (from peo ple training to be scien-r. tists) . I feel that . one of. the main roots of the trouble is the pathetically low en ; ' . trance age which We suffer, from, some freshers haven't even - reached . the. pimple ? stage and '. these children are poisoning our Univer . sity. ' . . They are terrified of at-. . tending ...
Sporting Section Aussie Rules Blues [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
[?] Aussie Rules Blues The last two matches have reflected Uni's training sessions. Of the players that appear at training quite a few give the impres sion that they are making martyrs of themselves. If Uni are going to go the full hundred minutes on Saturday afternoons they must put in concentrated efforts during the week. To blame Canberra's 'killing chill' is a poor excuse. Take in intro and head Uni has the strength and ability to be amongst the leaders of the competition . and the form that was. shown in patches agains.t Acton and Eastlake sup ports this. The latter match was a., blatant first half effort as .far as Uni. was concerned and the gen eral trend of the Acton game. was the same. Against' Acton,- Uni play ed vigorous and-- purpose ful football1 up to half-time and the- Magpies :? ?...earned- their nine.; point ? advantage the hard way: However, in the third quarter Uni faltered and gave their op position the ? opportunity of establishing a winning margin.

Bush Week Warning [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
Bush Week Warning The S.R.C. feels that it has a duty: to point out to members . of the Students' Associations its attitude towards the actions of students which the S.R.C. considers endangers life, limb or property during the forthcoming bush week celebrations. Whilst Bush Week is a function essential to student life in this; University, it is not an. occasion when stud ents have a mandate to 'run wild' ?.throughout Canberra. The S.R.C. proposes the following procedure should students indulge' in' any uri-. toward behaviour during the forthcoming celebra tion : . (1). Urges all students to obtain, or at least read a copy of the document 'If you are arrested,'- printed by the Civil Liberties Coun cil of N.S.W. which sets out your rights when arrested or . i detained by the police. In ; essence, this advises 'to say : or do as little as possible un- i til you have obtained legal I advice.' The S.R.C. should ' ; have a number of copies of this pamphlet available shortly, -which can be...
SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR LAW SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR LAW SOCIETY , It has recently been alleged that the Law Society expects special treatment from the S.R.C. The Law Society received special treatment of a most unfair nature from the S.R.C. in that august body's handling of the 1963 Law Society debts. - - - In the formal applica tion prepared by the Treasurer of the Law Soc iety for the S.R.C. it was pointed out that the reas on the Law Society was applying for this coverage was to restore the Society's financial position so that it may be better able to conduct this University's first Intervarsity competi tion in 1965. The Society is adopting a brave ap proach to this commit ment, for it will have to raise a good portion of the £500 estimate itself, but with the present experi enced committee and the assistance of the S.R.C. it is confident that the event can be arranged. The Law Society applied . for £24 to cover the 1963 losses. Apparently oblivious of the motive of this appli- | cation, the Council discuss- ...
EDITORIAL Sports Council [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
EDITORIAL - Snorts Council The clouds of dust have still not set tled from the sports councils' affiliation farce. The ? general meeting which dis affiliated the Speleos and Biishwalkers, adopted as their criteria for membership 'those clubs which conduct sport -recog- nised ' as such by the Australian Universi- ' ties Sports Association.' Woroni pointed to the absurdity oi tnis aennraon ana uur doubts have now been proved true. It has turned out that A.U.S.A. does not recognise any sport. It merely has a list for inter-varsity competition, to which sports are; added or deleted as the demand and facilities for competition dictate. The / sports council . are, , in short; back where ? they started last .y.ear. . ' ' The blame for this, absurd .situation. has been passed in all- directions;,' by this year's sports council. It was the fault of last sports council. It .was a general meet ing which adopted .the regulations . y Yet the fact remains (in the council mm- :- utes) , that the- ...
"THE AUSTRALIAN" Reviewed [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
' Till. AUSTRALIAN'' Reviewed , , On Wednesday, July 15, 1954, the first Australian National newspaper, ' 'The . Australian,' was printed for distribution a round Australia. This comment is that of first . impressions after reading the first few newspapers purposefully, but critically, to see whether it matched to expectations placed o n it my myself and a number of others who ..shared my hopes. The 'national' news paper should provide both a, national and interna tional news coverage. It is in meeting ihe demands of the former that The Aust ralian has failed. Covering national news is ; undoubtedly ? an ex tremely hard job for any newspaper to attempt. Many , of -the more important gov ernment decisions affecting the ; everyday lives of ; the Australian . population - are made; by. the States. Such ' decisions as drinking hours, ?traffic offences, health regu lations, building require ments and -many others has. two choices in this regard. Either, to pick out the cream ? of the- lo...
Elections [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
Elections . ; Before.vplacing.y.oyr^yote at the S:R.,G. ' by-el e cti on there, are a f e w imp ortarit fac- ' tors which should be considered. . The first of these is that there are too many people on the S.R.C. already , who have been elected because ;of *the miscon- -? c'eption that either length of ?time in the : University or - previous participation in numerous clubs, societies ? and -committees ?' necessarily makes them good S.R.G.- mat- ; eriai. ine o.it-.u.- is liacien ? witn omcious committee -men' and' aged, orators who tend ; only to complicate procedure land, extend . . the time of , meetings beyond : all propor- . tion.

Bach's Greatest Hits [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
I Bach's Greatest Hits A fairly recent disc, entitled Bach's Greatest Hits demonstrates remarkably well the time, power and skill of Bach's art. For even although the treat ment tends to distract at times,, the genuine aesthetic qualities still impress themselves upon the tolerant listener. I say tolerant because the utterly dedicated Bach ? man would, need to brace hiinself and suppress howls of 'sacrilege!!', before allowing himself to listen to more. However, the music is in fact so well presented that I suggest even this specimen' would immensely enjoy the record. ' It has ofteri' been' said that Bach woiild sound well as 'jazz v'anS':Wara.;'SWinkle and his Swingle Singers have surely proved this true. . Many of -Bach's best known short' movements have . been used; a rhythm backing provided to a' choir of . about ten voices gives the work real vitality and motion. The metho'd of presentation' is in general of the stand ard jazz vocal accompariiriient type, i.e., dooby-do's, pa-d...
NEED FOR SKI LODGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
NEED FOR SKI LODGE Early falls of snow have made for good skiing conditions on the mountains and tne Ski Club has already organised trips, one a j - weekend trip to Guthega, the other a bus trip to Perisher. j The week-end trip to Guthega, although suc cessful emphasised the pressing need for some . type of University lodge in the mountains. - When it was decided to arrange the week-end, en quiries were made at a. number of lodges at Per isher; but none could, offer accommodation for more than ? eight people. Fin ally, 12 bookings were . ob tained -at. the Snowy Moun tains Hut at Guthega, but in this case the club owners were making, an exception to their usual practice,- and it is doubtful whether such a number of beds could be obtained regularly. Although this accommo dation was very welcome, the club had received ap plications .from more than. 30 people to go on the week-end, and so had had to' turn down the majority. It seems that until - the University has a lodge of its own, t...

New Source of History [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
New Source of History At the first seminar arranged by the ?( itewly'-iFormed A.N.U. Historical Society, Dr. Edgar Waters discussed the place roiK songs have in historical studies. Dr. Waters's main point was that folk songs, being an oral form of literature, have the same sort of value as written literature in cultural and .. .; social history. Folk songs cannot vorily give a picture of contemporary life, but they can also give insight into all thought, feelings ' and behaviour of the people who sing them. Historically-speaking, folksongs are important not: for their aesthetic qualities,, but for what they have 'to tell of the ordinary life of the singers themselves. History has no use for formal definitions of 'folk- ' songs.' Its main concern is the ;s6ng itself — who sang it? When did they sing? Why:, did they, sing it;?. How ' long was it sung for? What changes; did , it .undergo? Answers ' to the questions are often very, difficult, al though illuminating at the same 'time, ' ...
Union-a reappraisal A Lion in a Forest of White [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
Union -a reappraisal A Lion in a Forest of White The football season has games and a forecast of - future results would be ap propriate. . . : 4 During) the pre-season ''trials . all University grade teams. looked set for a high ly ^successful season. Indeed .this promise was fulfilled in the early season games. How- | ever, the usual slump set in and a bout of losses set the first grade team back con siderably,, though the sec ond and third grade teams managed to maintain their leading positions. The sec onds were unfortunate to lose even the two games they did in the first, half g of the season, but it would be unus,ual for any Univer sity side to last as long at that without loss. At the end of the first half of the season the firsts were second-last in the competi tion, having lost four games and won four. The next two rounds saw a considerable ' improvement with Cooma being defeated on their home ground 'for the fii'st time hi weeks: and Royals' also being convincingly defeated...
General I-V bah lifted, but Rules and Rowing off [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
General I-V t ban lifted, but Rules and Rowing off j -At the recent' meeting I of A.U.S.A in Sydney, the i ban on . all . intervarsity. i sport was lifted. This ban imposeed after the Perth carnival, was. largely , a I political manoeuvre to ap pease the Vice-Chancellors and the outraged 'press. At no stage was this ban likely to have been put into -effect. The new ban, however, will almost certainly mean that there will be no rules for Rowing Car nivals next year. , Sean as a , deserved pun ishment and a deterrent to other sports by A.U.S.A the question now is whether the Vice Chancel lors will over-rule the stu dent decision' and impose a general ban of .their own.
