A's Draw, Both B's win Hockey Matches Results, Saturday, June 17: A Grade: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

A's Draw, Both B's win Hockey Matches Results, Saturday, June 17: A Grade: The senior team's first' game on its return to Canberra was against Bar ton. A rough ground made condit ions a little dimcul.t University gen erally had the best of the play but found its usual difficulty in penetrat ing the last line of defence. Garret, tried at centre forwar.d gained the only score in the first half. Barton scored their only goal from a penalty bully. University's chance to go ahead again came following a fine run up the left wing by Dunn. A well timed pass was picked up by Garret at the head of the circle but confusion followed and the game * finished in a draw. This was suflic- , ient, coupled with R.M.C. 's defeat of „? Waratahs, to move University up to „ 3rd position on the premiership table. « Best players: Kaye, Dunn and Star- , key. „ B Grade No. 2: ?

HOSTEL FOR STUDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

HOSTEL FOR STUDENTS Where do College students go after their evening lectures? They cannot discuss their work or their ideas over a cup of . coffee unless they have their own homes or they are prepared to - do so in the drab, small rooms of a hostel. Some active students, braving confinment, thin fibro walls and managerial disapproval, have attempted to foster a ' * Student Atmosphere' in their rooms, but these room-suppers must be - quiet and restrained and the image of the. last bus is always ; . present. Thus Canberra's static,, devitalised society is pro . '. tected from concentrated criticism at tlhe hands of what is .? ? potentially the most critical body in the community. Recently Australian Universities have been taking more .interest in the .Domestic arrangements of their students. The -' '\ '.importance of these arrangements has long been realised in '? :'' .the U.K. and on the) Continent. The opening of Gungahlin is I ;'? -a.step' in the right direction, but it houses onl...

THE SOUND AND THE FURY PHALLUS RE-ERECTED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

THE SOUND AND THE FURY PHALLUS RE-ERECTED Sirs, W. L. Morrison's vaguely phrased and disrespectful attack on the pro posed Memorial to American service men ('Woroni,' June 14, 1950) de serves to be contemptuously tossed aside. Yet such is the credulity of College students that to ignore it might lead readers to the belief that all College students support Mr. Morrison's scurrilous assault on art and progress. To criticise this grand scheme is to show a wicked lack of appreciation of the splendid victory of the Ameri cans, and of their magnificent con tribution to the Australian war effort. We shall never repay the Americans for saving us from the horrors of in vasion, but propriety makes it obli gatory for us to show in some way that we remember them, And this is the object of the Memorial, which none will deny is a paragon of ar . chitectural beauty. It is true that the present genera tion of Australians will not, indeed they cannot, forget that the Ameri cans were here during the ...

HOCKEY TEAM WINS IN SYDNEY Rain Ruins Competition [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

HOCKEY TEAM WINS IN SYDNEY Rain Ruins Competition The Canberra University College jockey team made its annual trip to Sydney on the King's Birthday week end to contest the S.C. A.D. Shield wfith Sydney University, New Eng land University College and R.M.C., Diintroon. As a sign of the times all except two of the team were found rides to Sydney in units of the Club's transport fleet. Also in evidence were a number of supporters who .followed the team's fortunes with avid interest and did their best to im prove its chances in the Monday gumes by keeping a kindly eye on its members' activities on Sunday. In spite of the unfortunate inability of Dan Dunn to make the trip, the team seemed to have a better than Usual chance of scoring its first Shield. This chance was heightened ^fter the first round of matches on Saturday, when R.M.C. beat Sydney tlniversity 3 goals to 2 goals and Canberra beat Armidale 4-3. Mon day's games were washed out, how fever, as was everything else in Syd ney In...

REP. STAGES BRIGHT COCKTAIL PARTY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

REP. STAGES BRIGHT COCKTAIL PARTY On Saturday, June 17, 150 people crowded into the 2CA theatre to hear the Canberra Repertory's active reading of T. S. Eliot's latest and much discussed play 'The Cocktail Party.' Such support for a play-reading is unprecedented in Canberra, and seems . to indicate a growing interest in the Theatre. It is up to the Repertory to stimulate that . interest. . The limitations of play-readings are usually only too obvious, but air intelligent production together with Eliot's reliance on dialogue rather than action, gave to this reading an atmosphere of reality . . approaching that of an actual performance. The theme of the play, simply that one must make the best of life, by fol lowing one's calling, even if it leads to death, is not intricate, but the characters Eliot uses are often involved and sometimes unreal requiring the complete under standing , of the cast. One ' felt that some members of the cast were a little confused as to the real nature of t...

HUMPTY DUMPED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

HUMPTY DUMPED The importance of the theme of 'All The King's Men,' and its treatment in the film, justifies com ment on^ the review in the last edition of Woroni. Humpty Dumpty, armed with a yard stick of film unity— at once both 'significant' and 'artistic' —tells us that 'All The King's Men' fails because the moral ('that political corruption is in excusable even to secure reform and that demagogy results in ty ranny') fails to unify the film. - It is with regret that one sug gests, to so confident a critic that the intended theme of the author, Robert Perm Warren, differs from that which he has deduced for us. Warreii has said of the plot that . 1 ' it is not the story of any par ticular man ; there have been many throughout the world. . . Thisl is the story of corruption through power,, corruption of idealistic aims by means of sheer evil. ' Admit tedly not a new theme — all power corrupts but' absolute power cor rupts absolutely has long been a platitude.' Nevertheless Warren l...

HOME AWAY FROM HOME [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

HOME AWAY FROM HOME Sirs, As one who has experienced life away from home, and in particular, the conditions existing in several Canberra hostels, may I draw atten tion to the very creditable work being done by the management and staff at 'Gungahlin.' It is indeed a privilege, now-a-days to dwell in an establishment that can be acknowledged readily as a home away from home. Yet this I believe is true of 'Gungahlin,' and were it not for the loyal and unself ish services of the management and staff, many of us would not be as happily placed as we are at present. Yours faithfully, 'RESIDENT STUDENT' 'Gungahlin.'

AT THE CINEMA SHOESHINE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950

A'f THE CINEMA SHOESHINE With the appearance of Ro» sfelihi -s ' ' Open City ' ' in 1945, the film moguls of Hollywood were ;'? .' shocked out of their complacency. and given final proof, if such were necessary, that the pre-eminence of the Hollywood product, based on box-office monopoly and the ability to cater for the apparently low average mentality of its domestic audiences, was in danger of top pling. The initial enthusiasm of discerning critics at the birth of a new, vital and inspired Italian film ? tradition has been confirmed by films such as ' ' To Live in Peace, ' ' rand ' 'Paisa, ' ' both of which have met with success in Australian theatres. 'Shoeshine' is the most recent addition to this small, but distin guished list, to be released in Aus tralia. For a film-going public lulled into insensibility by musical extravaganzas and insipid domes tic comedies, it is a thrilling ex perience to see a film that seizes upon the raw material of life, em bracing is so fervently, th...

'COUSIN' ATTACKED Sirs, . The demise of the staid ands unin I formative 'Student Notes' and the I birth' of a new, vigorous magazine in I the College is greatly to be praised. I But the splendour of your bright achievement is marred by the reten tion of that childish column, 'What's i I Buzzin,' so-called. i 1 This column is badly written in I sickly imitation of that ugly and equivocal journalese style of half witted newspaper columnists. Its matter is puerile, and more appro priate to a teen age newsletter than j, to an adult journal. It is insipid, It h is: dull; its humour is forced and I feeble. It is personal, and the nonse I| nsioal gibes at nonentities within the If writer's imbecilic circle are boring to S the 'majority_.of your readerg. II ? ' . . . £«i ' ??--.? ???- If ~ . .

I Watercolour is a ditticulti med- I him, lacking the power and intem- I sity of oil, and, as in all water colour exhibitions, there were some colourless, uninteresting works.

I However the exhibition is generr- ? . ally pleasing, and achieves a con sistent standard which former ex hibitions held in the main hall this year have lacked. Those which caught my eye were Douglas Annand's 'Grand Stand - Frolic', Frank Hinder 's 'Wyn- yard Station', Yvonne du Mou lin 's 'Back Street' and 'Rain Mist', both of Max Ragles 'a ex hibits, 'Fishing Boat' and 'Vic- torian Landscape', and Enid Cambridge's colourful 'Sunset in Hartley Valley'.
