DEMOCRACY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
DEMOCRACY I was surprised to read in 'Scott Speaks,' Mr. Ben nett's defence of the police raid on the Nazi . Party ;in Sydney justified in the name of. democracy. From -the out set I want to make it quite clear that. I ? abhor.; the poli cies and aims of the Nazi Party, especially . its hate ful doctrine of antisemi tism. If. my interpretation of democracy is correct, it is a system of government,- the basis of which is the free passage of ideas and free dom of discussion. In other words freedom to dissent- is guaranteed to individuals and. groups alike. Opinions in disagreement with the policy of the cur rent ruling group and those dissenting ' from the funda mentals of the political system itself should equally be allowed unrestricted ex pression. Dissenting groups have every right to chal lenge the present system of government if they believe a system based on other principles would be more beneficial to society. As long- as- this battle is fought within the realm of ideas and a ...
INTOLERANCE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
INTOLERANCE Dear Sir, In a way there is only one. crime, the crime of intoler ance, intolerance that re fuses to allow that another may differ in opinion from itself and still be intellec tually sincere, that is hos tile to' all views of life but its 'own, that cannot imag ine that another may look with love and respect upon something that means noth ing' to itself, that wishes to ban or censor what it does riot agree with, that consid ers stupid and ignorant wliat it does not understand, that does riot try to under stand what it does not know about; that cynically .ridi cules what it is unable to to love, that/ in the long run destroys the possibility of objective discussions and ul timately ''./of learning, and finally dessicates air liuman relations. Though- it germinates in individual persons, it .is I think the root cause of. the larger world troubles of rac ial hate and,'war and perse cution and social injustice. These were the thoughts that came to me as. I read 'God with Mar...
COURT JESTER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964
COURT 'JESTER ] Dear Sir, I Although the larger and 3 longer established Universi- j ties can support one or more \ 'Court Jester' on their j S.R.C.'s, it is quite appar- ? ent that the A.N.U. cannot j afford such a luxury, obvi- j' ously Mr.. George Martin has - not realised this. ' I must admit that at first ' . Mr. Martin amused me and |; I voted -for him. But my vote ] was not meant as an endorse- | ment of irresponsible rep resentation. I believed genu inely that he would do some thing constructive. Then I pitied him. It seemed to me that anybody who could make an - exhibition of him- | self, for no apparent cause, ' so consistently had no self respect : nor any respect for I others. Lastly I was disgusted. It appears that Mr. Martin has gathered about him a cot erie of 'intellectual' admir ers. I hope that their only motive is not, 'amusement' for that would. be disastrous, both for - Mr. Martin and j themselves. I appeal to the first year students' to nominate as v many well-...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Bruce Hall, A.N.U. July 24, 1964. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 August 1964
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Bruce Hall, A.N.U. i Julv 24, 1964. The Editor 'Woroni,' A.N.U. ~ Sir, — In his article in, this issue of 'Woroni,' Mr. Scott Bennett seems tn bn repeating uncritically a number of old bromides about Australia and Aust ralian nationalism. I quote from his - article: 'The Union Jack in the cor ner of the flag is quite un necessary today ; — its place is as the British emblem, not part of ours.' Let us examine this highly specious statement. Firstly, Mr. Bennett seems to imply that a country should review its flag, to keep up ,to date. I suggest that this is ab surd, for such an act vitiates the vei'y purpose of having a national flag. Surely a country desires its flag to be something to evoke the atavistic emotion of pat riotism, something to sym bolise a great past as well as a present and a future. Of course the Bi'itish peor pie revere their Union Jack ljecause of the great past it represents; and I, suggest that Australians would de sire of their flag the' sy...

MANIACS ON THE MARCH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 August 1964
MANIACS ON THE MARCH I have come to a conclu-' sion, myself and all those who went on the forty mile hike must be certifiable lunatics. There is no other word for it — who else would toast sandwiches on a primus and put lime juice in the water, so that we would have oyster soup a la lime juice. We started out from some place like Devil's Peak (it certainly looked liko the other end of the worJ-j; and split into informal groups ac cording to speed. Ten miles later Ve all headed down towards Picca dilly Circus .(some more sober than others) and then headed in sundry ways back towards . Canberra. The writer only reached Uriarra before succumbing to the hitch-hiking cr;i£e. As far as -is known, every one has returned to the fold by now! — W. KITCHEN.

Duntroon - University Damage Raids on Bruce Hall - Kokoda Quarters On Saturday night a group of Univer sity students raided Kokoda Quarters, Dunt roon and burnt an old car belonging to a student on the Duntroon parade ground. Shortly afterwards 150 cadets retaliated and raided Bruce Hall. Damage to buildings and personal property was sustained in both raids. The raid at Kokoda Quar ters took place at 6.30 p.m. while cadets were at tea. About 35 students entered Duntroon unnoticed despite the careful watch kept by cadets throughout Bush Week. The students placed flour in rooms of Kokoda Quarters and also upturned beds in rooms. No damage was done to the buildings, but some lec ture notes and personal be longings were marked and dis-arrayed. The total estimated dam age was not high. This was mainly the cost of having the uniforms which were marked with flour dry-cleaned. At the same time several students drove an old car onto the parade ground and set flre to it. The whole party then ...
