BOARD RESIGN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
BOARD RESIGN The three student mem bers of the . union intrim board, Messrs Hartnell, Yocklunn and Thome, have resigned. This action was made nec essary by the fact that the vice-chancellor has appoint ed the intrim board- to act until such time as a board can ? be ? constituted. , In his letter of resignation, Mr.. Yocklunn outlined the reasons for resigning. , 'I strongly fee.l that each, new S.R.C. has. the right to elect its own nominees to the Board, and that if it.: is not done, the Board cannot be truly representative of. the students. . 'I am therefore resigning, to give the new S.R.C. the opportunity to elect its own nominee to the Interim Board. However, I would be interested in standing for election to this vacancy.'
Tandem writers THEATRE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
Tandem writers [?] SOME of the best humorous and satirical literary works over the past few decades have been produced by a pair — or tandem — of writers who, on their own, were un able to reach the heights they managed to scale together. Examples of such tandems are -Brahms and Simon; Kaufmann and Hart; Muir and Naughton, and more re cently, Nicols and May. These teams together have produced consistently excel lent Work, some over a per iod, of many years. Two seems to-be the ideal num ber, since the team mem bers . must be in close rap port with each other, while at- the same time never los ing their critical judgment of each other's contribution. The odds would be rather against finding three or four individuals who coulQ oper ate together in this mariner over ? long periods, though the Goons prove that it is possible. Although the Goon scripts were basically the work of one of thsm ('this Goon Show comes from the pen of Spike Milligan — you can see Mr. Milligan in his pen any Su...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
?LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ' Dear Sir — In an attempt' to prevent a recurrence of events that took place at an S.R.C. *' by-election last year, I write to condemn the abuses of editorial privileges, perpetrated by the Editor of 'Woroni' in an effort to save the easily led freshers from being further .. . misled. s \ The issue of 'Woroni' that ? first needs to be condemned : : is- that- which had as its ?front-page headline 'Gamaut to- Stand for S.R.C.' The article under that heading ? made no claim to be an -.-?'? editorial, and yet obviously : - that is all it was. Such views as were expressed in it could only u be the opinion of one . ittisguided Editor. ?Nobody can blame a fresher for. taking notice of '?'? '.Woroni.' It-is printed under the auspices of. their S.R.C. ? and is their main source of ? information on University ?life.

LEST WE FORGET. TOGETHERNESS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
[?] E 5 S MASSACRE! the headline screamed ? and the story tried to back it up. Seven ????? Malaysian troops were massacred by a party of Indonesian infiltrators on Sun- ? ; day, it reported. The men were on patrol in an area of southern Malaya. Stories about Malaysians killing In donesians don't read this way. Mostly the reports speak of 'mopping up operations' (what a disgusting picture that phrase presents) in which so many Indonesians were killed and so many captured. Of course all's fair in war and so it's perfectly natural that we should be forced to read in our newspapers every piece of propaganda that can be contriv- - ed by the authorities. After all. our boys are up there defending Malaysia against Indonesian aggression. Surely this gives us the right to be as biased and bigoted as . we can profitably be. Early this year the. propaganda be came quite sickening. This was after the ? Government had begun to make a few preparations for war with Indonesia: alerting the air forc...
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES Yocklunn "Experience, streamlined S.R.C. close liaison with administration and increased union facilities." [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
[?] Yocklunn 'Experience, streamlined S.R.C. close liaison with administra tion and increased union facilities.'

Admin. Censured FEES REDUCTION DEMANDED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
[?] FEES REDUCTION DEMANDED Bo Hi the administration and the S.R.G. were condemned in motions passed by the special general meeting of the Orison on Tuesday night. The meeting was called by the chairman oi the Union interim board, Mr. 'Thome, to report on the state of the Union and answer questions. Only forty-eight of the two and a half thousand members attended the meeting, which was marred by bitter personal ex changes and the wortt forms of 'in' type student politics. Main topic of debate was the exclusive use of the Union dining hall by Burton Hall residents and the restrictions- .which this has placed on .other members of the Union. Nearly half the ' meeting wag; spent in debating when Mi\ Thorn e.' ??first .Wip-w ''about the proposal to feed Burton Hall at the Union — 'officially' and unofficially. In. perhaps the best speech of the night, Mr. Gollan pointed to the futility of this de bate and. the meeting moved on to a discus sion of- what could be done now. Whilst the meeti...

GIVE ME MONEY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
GIVE ME MONEY The members of the A.N.U.'s latest department, Forestry, have so far shown little interest in the rest of the university. Last week the president and vice-president of the S.R.C. attended a general meeting of the forestry stud ents' union, to discuss how the S.R.C. could best help the Forestry School. It was decided that the forestry students' union should continue to operate as before, but as a register ed society of the S.R.C. Because of the limited use which the members of the forestry school can make of Union and stud ents' association facilities, the S.R.C. will repay part of the compulsory stud ents' association fee to the Forestry Union, which will then finance its clubs and societies. The union and sports union are expected to do likewise. After Mr. Hartnell had ' briefly outlined the workings of the students' association, the union and the S.R.C., he answered questions ' from the body of the hall. Ninety per cent of these questions were concerned with how much...

SHOWERS OF RECORDS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
SHOWERS OE T RECORDS I Cleanliness, so they say, is next to god liness. Fanatics, religious and otherwise, are still splashing away as the shower fad con- | tinues to flood campuses. | A Sir George Williams university studeni in Montreal, Canada, just f last month doused himself ; .continuously for 60 hours. Not leng after a Utah student immersed himself for 75 hours. ; Then the championship went south to New Mexico where two University of New. Mexico freshmen stood and slept together under the nozzle for 80 hours. And all to no avail. A Canadian, Phil Calvert at Acadia University, has racked up an amazing 101 hours in the shower. Emerg ing dragging an air mat tress behind, him, Calvert allowed as to how he felt a little 'drizzled.' Not to be out,done 011 the cleanliness kick, another Acadian student endured a 31 and a half hour molar polishing marathon to smash the previous world record for toothbrushing by more than 20 hours. I Many social commentators j sea the current rash of fa...
Rugby form poor [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
Rugby form poor Last Saturday's Rugby trials demonstrated the characteristic raggedness of early season football. In particular the trials showed unexpected lack of new talent in the open grades this year. The 19 team showed some' potential in defeating Ainslie 11-3, with the backs in par ticular revealing some abili ty; the forwards, although not as big as last year's pack, were also impressive. In a scrappy game the thirds were defeated by I.yneham 11-6. For University Wennburg stood out. The Orange Emus defeated the seconds :easily in another ragged game. Gammage play ed well. The firsts also lost to a much fitter Emus 12-5. Apart from Smith and Cummins, the standard of play in the backs was dismal, marked by across the field running and poor tackling. The forwards were far too loose in all games and their service to the backs was slow — in lineouts, mis directed. At hooker, there was little difference between Clements and Maclennan in both the . j scrums and the loose. Of the si...
S.A.F.A. results and future [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
B.A.F. A.- results and future The police behaved well at all times. Obviously they were told to. They even called us 'ladies and gentle men' at Moree. Don't sup pose they thought it, but they said it. That part of the trip came as a surprise, so did the de cree of publicity. S.A.F.A. aims to dramatise the abor ogine problem in a news worthy manner, so the pub licity was welcome, though sometimes embarrassing. At Grafton, where we spent a bus driver-less day, the students made for the pool, a habit, and a habit with the police and press ' who greeted us there. Police protection, T.V., press, radio for a bunch of students playing 'silly bug gers' in a deserted swim ming pool. But frivolity generally took the form of a cool drink and a joke in the bus after a tense visit or a long. day talking to the aborigines and learning from them. ? We had decided at ;a gen eral meeting before the tour started to place equal em phasis- upon the dramatisa tion (i.e., demonstration, .-? etc.) angle a...
OUT OF PHYSIC [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
OUT OF PHYSIC On reading the publica tions section of the Science Dean's report, one cannot help but notice that during 1964 the Physics Dept. is reported as not producing one publication. Is this a printer's error' or merely a cold scientific fact? If the latter, then we humble science students beg some explanation of , this fact. While Physics ; produced none, Zoology and other departments were reported as very pro ductive. ', Is it because the frequency * '., of the A.N.U. report is out of phase with the research : programme and so we can Rxpect a bumper report next year or do the research pro- ? grammes of the Physics Dept. extend over many years and ?; one cannot expect papers to be produced frequently? '] It may be true, of course, , that the Physics Dept. de- « pends on good quality pub- ' locations for its reputation rather than voluminous ? output. It may also be true ^ that the staff is unable to ' . \ find time for research after ' their heavy lecture bend i and teaching ...

THE HOUSE THAT MUMMY BUILT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 25 March 1965
THE HOUSE THAT MUMMY BUILT University House is an institution unique in Australia and, ..perhaps, in the world. It is to be hoped that it remains so ; and it probably will. Its distinction rests chiefly on its sep aration from the rest of the University. Guests — especially undergraduates — are expected to refrain from making too fre quent appearances in the dining hall or bar. A raised eyebrow, and then a word of warning, tells the resident concerned that outsiders (excepting some f'taff) are to be at best tolerated occasionally. It is unlikely that the House will ever be expanded to accommodate extra resi dents and whilst no-one would wish to de stroy the architectural wholeness of the House, it is evident that future postgradu ate halls of residence will not equal the splendour of the present building; for that would detract from the splendour of the present administration. A smaller and smaller percentage of graduate students will thus belong to the House. ' Partly as a result o...
