PRINCIPAL ON STOLEN BOOKS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 6 August 1964
PRINCIPAL ON STOLEN BOOKS Sir, — During the past year books missing from the School of General Studies Library have run into hundreds. These books have been taken from the Library without being recorded at the Loans Desk; in plain English, they have been stolen. On 30th July, 1964, a first-year student was stopped when leaving the library, and was found to have two books in his brief case which had not been signed for. I have fined him the. sum of £20 for this offence and fE wish students to know that I intend this to be the standard punishment for a first offence of this kind; a second offence will lead to a recom mendation to the Vice-Chancellor for expulsion from the University. The sooner students realise that selfish and anti-social behaviour of this kind will be severely punished, the better it will be for everybody. Yours sincerely, HERBERT BURTON, Principal. | ? ? ?

Urge to Purge [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
Urge to Purge Early; in March a group of people, headed by George Maxwell, got together to see if some substitute could be found for the defunct liter ary magazine, 'Prometh- eus.' The result was purge. . .Letters ., of., . praise. ..or. . con demnation should be sent to Dean O'Connor, who sug gested the name. What has the result been? A mixed one. It'sj; not 'Evergreen Review'' but at 'least it's not' the ; 'Ee|er Brennan page. There has been .some good poetry and some bad poetry and the quality of the stories, - art icles, humour and letters have been about the same. Undoubtedly the reason for some of the drivel .that is published in purge is due to the fact that those con nected with it are apt to be interrupted in the middle of their drinking, necking or studying by a ~ desperate organiser shrieking, 'Please write me. something!' Again and again the editors are forced to fall back on the same handful of contribu tors or write most of the issue themselves. Now you can see the mor...
PUBLI CATIONS The Art of Sharp [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
CANONS p q The Art of Sharp There have been appear T ing lately, in the Sydney Student Press, - cartoons, populated by little squiggly characters in different stages' of inebriation, necking, status climbing or justpliain idiocy. The figures are sus tn.inprl hv n sppmintrlv narp less handwriting and blot ches of ink. Martin Sharp is a 22 year old student at the Univerr sity of N.S.W. He is tall, thick lipped with kind but cynical eyes. He finds the controversy around his work somewhat surprising. As an artist, to him the problem is not whether to say it or not, but how to say it. Syd ney has obviously thought otherwise. The controversy?. Two of Martin Sharp's drawings, 'The Gas Lash' and an 'Oz' satire have been sent to Sydney Central Court on charges of alleged obscenity. It is impossible to discuss ;he trial comments since 30th cases are sub-judice. Martin Sharp stands accus 3d, with the . editors 'and publishers, of 'Tharunka' and 'Oz.' In his opinion, everyone misses the point' ...
MARTIN ELECTED FOR COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
MARTIN ELECTED FOR COUNCIL I am rather overwhelmed at this moment and also somewhat inarticulate be cause of a wait of too long a period with less than enough sleep. ' But at last the establish ment that roared for a change has been given quite a nuage. To think that more than thirteen hundred people would vote for a young un tried candidate at his first attempt is most pleasing. This was only possible by the., strenuous efforts of numbers of students who supported and campaigned for me. I am. unable to express my gratitude to those who supported me and voted for me. I'm glad this effort was not in vain and I'll do my best to keep up a progres sive programme. — A. G. MARTIN
Melbourne Drama Festival 24th Aug. to 5th Sept. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
Melbourne Drama Festival 24th Aug. to 5th Sept. ? England's John Arden has so far written four plays. At the invitation of Sigie Jorgensen, organiser of this year's Melbourne Drama Festival, Arden flew down from London to attend the opening ceremonies. The festival lasted two weeks and a good many at- - trocious performances. The programme . was rich, the public had ' the opportunity to attend free lectures and symposiums, pay to see pro fessional and semiprofes sional films and to go to nightly inter-varsity play productions. The theatre used was that of the Melbourne University Union, a patched-up picture frame stage with spacious back-stage workshops. The theatre's lighting facilities are lousy and the planks on the podium creak. Productions like Queens land's 'Alice in Wonderland' done on a bare platform an aemically misfired because of. the theatre's inadequacy, though I am told that their home facilities were even worse. - In spite , of John Arden 's recognised fame, no more t...
In and Out of Bungendore [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
In and Out of Bungendore Some twenty four miles N.E. of Canberra spreads the little town of Bungendore. On Friday, the seventh of last month we invaded the town's Royal Hotel. By one o'clock the beer-garden was filled to capacity. In 1981 pilgrims number ed only 30. They succeeded, however, in declaring the small Republic of Bungen dore foundecf. This in 1961. 1964 'ambitions run less high. When the local's juke box was brought into the beergarden for the latest hits, all the machine, receiv ed was a hit in its panel. ' Outside police patrolled the area in search of stray .'vandals. Upstairs. 'the hotel bedrooms were out of bounds for the more emotional. The manager sat pretty. Students were out to 'drink, the pub dry.' But it wasn't so dry. The editor of this | newspaper sloshed ex S.R.C. president Chris Higgins with a good two pints of beer only to be drenched in his turn by Megan Stoyles. After a short and stirring address George Martin made an exciting drain-pipe de cent. All th...
THEATRE The man with the oboe [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
THEATRE The man with the oboe When a revue actor de cides to produce a play about Jesus Christ's sec ond coming as a certified accountant, it is time to queue up for tickets. Satire is a revue man's job and revue man Mr. John Kingley is. The author of 'Man With | The Oboe,' a new American satire as the play was an nounced, .is- Mr. Webster. Smalley. And Mr. Smalley is an American. Follow? And he writes this fantasy on 'how nice . it' d be- were you nice like, me.' -. Arid in ^ the play Piper plays this red-hot oboe arid messes in 'politics. 1 But these politicians are all crooked, see? They steal money from widows and virgins. Original, no? And: then they get this aboe playing Schlemiel and put him up front. Clever, eh? Satirical, isn't it? But Oboe's honest! Pure as the driven slash. Laugh? I thought I'd never start! It would have taken Jesus Christ not .to. make mono tonous macparoni of the author's half-baked, half chewed sludge. Mr. Kingley's approach to the play had all the tac...

BOOKS THE GROUP [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
BOOKS GROUP Noel Pratt i ? On the back of the dust jacket of 'The Group,' Julian Mitchell, of Specta tor, is quoted as saying that everything in The Group is almost fanatically well ob served.' This is true,- for Mary McCarthy is as acute as British novelist Doris Les sing in observing women's responses to situations. : . Mary McCarthy starts out with what is basically ah in teresting,. and .challenging, theme; the reactions, of- eight girls of the 1930's when they are brought into contact with the 'real'- world; -as opposed ? to the sheltered confines of Vassar College. The opening chapter high lights this ability. The novel ist best demonstrates her skill in presenting the effect self consciously introspective women have on one anoth er's thinking. She scrupu lously shows how their ap proach to situations is modi fied by their awareness of 'tile attitudes of their friends. In this chapter one of the girls, Kay, is getting mar ried, and the author flashes -kaleidoscopically from on...

ON POETRY & SENSE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
ON POETRY & SENSE (By A. D. Hope) A commonly held view of the nature of human experi ence is that it can be divided, into that knowledge which comes to us in the form of direct or unmediated percep tion — things we hear, see, smell, taste and feei and events in the conscious life of each individual of which he himself is directly aware — and, on the other hand, that knowledge which comes to us mediately by inference or re port — i events distant in time or space, events beyond the scope of sensory percep tion and the minds and feel ings of people other than ourselvesv' In general-, there seems to be no reason- to quarrel with this view. But if we look more-closely at the notion of direct per ception, it may be argued that while such, perceptions are direct, they are not 'im- mediate,'.' that is unmediated. In vision the eye, rays of light and other media inter vene between the object per ceived and the perceiver. The eye is an instrument by means of which we see, analogous t...
THE NATIONALIST SOCIALIST PARTY OF AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 September 1964
THE NATIONALIST SOCIALIST PARTY OF AUSTRALIA (By E. R. CAWTHRON) In the ancient world there was a school of philosophy known as Stoicism. The Ancient Greek and Roman Stoics challenged the materialism which they saw to be cor ' rupting and undermining their cultures and taught that men should submit their wills to the laws of nature and should under no circumstances regard themselves as being aloof or invulnerable to natural processes. They realised that man is but a child of nature, a child gifted intellectually over his animal cousins, but -who, nevertheless, must conform to the basic rules or laws if he was to survive and evolve in accordance with natural processes. But by using his reason man could reach great heights and achievements. The Stoic concept was vigorously attacked and criticised by the materialist elements, for it demanded the general good rather than self-good, the surpression of greed and luxury, and strict conformity to ethical standards. An opposing materialistic...
