DISUNITY IN THE RANKS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1953
DISUNITY IN THE RANKS To say that the atmosphere was stormy at the Special General Meeting of the Students' Association held during' the last week of last term might be considered an exaggeration,, since only fourteen people were present? but even the most pedantic critic could not deny that there was a great deal of acrimony. The meeting was called to debate a motion that Students' Association fees should be raised from 15/- to £1,0,0 per annum and that? instead, of the present fifty fifty division between the S.R.C. and the Sports Union? .the latter body should henceforth receive 5/« and the ScRvCo 15/~C . 1 ? The chief speaker against the motion was Jim. Pead9 ex President of the Sports Council j who repeatedly ' appealed to the meeting to get their feet down' to earth and pull their heads out of the clouds o Was' it justice J he .asked? for 'the SoR0C.' to bump their own revenues, up by 100 -percent and reduce the Sports ' Union revenues by 50 per cent.

YOUR S. R. C. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1953
YOUR S. R. C. rrii'n urn i -i' hi- m l- »m 1 ?» 'r ii'i'il—jrr.Tii As you are - probably painfully - aware, membership of the Students' Association is compulsory. Understandably, the fresher objects that he should not be required to contribute towards a body in which he has no interest. Although many students manage to outgrow-this attitude as they progress with their studies, the vast majority, I fear, maintain throughout their university life an attitude of passive resistance to whatever the S.R.C. may arrange for their benefit. But precisely because membership of the Association is required by University statute, I feel that it behoves the S.R.C. to give some explanation of itself and to show by what right it enjoys the privilege of that protection. So I propose to take advantage of this rather belated first isstie of 'Woroni' for this year to set down a few thoughts on the role of the Students' Representative Council, and to invite your comments and criticisms. Now you are proba...

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1953
EDITORIAL The second term for 1953 commences with the move from the fire-damaged premises in Melbourne Buildings Civic to the new premises at Turner Hostel not yet complete, This promises considerable inconvenience to both staff and students for a time but it is an inconvenience which should be accepted cheerfully. There can be little question that students. Atfill derive many advantages from the change of premises - they will have much better facilities for student activities, there will be much more room for the Library and more study accommodation therein, they will derive considerable benefit from the new refectory and - above all - from the new Hall of Residence. The advantages of 'living-in' for students need little or no emphasis. On the one hand there is the fact that instead of one small hostel room, each student will have a bedroom and a study to be shared with one other student. Surely this is much preferable to pigging it in one tiny bedroom at Mulwala or Reid, Car-cwner...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 30 June 1953
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR; Dear Sir , Last issue, one of your writers urged students to criti cise things about them. Well, I've got a few bones to pick and I!m going to let my head go. Now it 1 s all very well for your cor ?; respondent to ia-ply that students are narrow-minded little squirts who have never read a single book not prescribed (and not even most of those which are). Rut what happens to make us Interested? Are our lecturers any better? Do they set us an example? Indeed they don't.' Most Uni. lecturers think their subject is God's own and don't care a hang about any other. What's more, they've got their heads too much up in the clouds, So^e galah gets, up and spouts about Keats and spring rhythm and Bach's counterpoint . And then somebody else tells us how in 1266 (or was iri-1 0.1 5);, ..King Harry or some clot or other got an arrow in the eye for signing Magna Carta. And what ' s more, ' they usually say it in Latin, As if ; that sort of thing mattered! Now if poetry and ...

CANTEEN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 30 June 1953
CANTEEN The 8. it. C. has recently discussed: with the manager, of the ..Cariteen located in the Main Hall the' question' of providing refreshments for students „ : The- Manager, who- has been most coopera tive in providing suppers for ' students' functions, reports that although he has on occasions opened the canteen at lunch time and in the evenings, he -has had no response from students or staff. This seems a pity since the ..facilities he could, pro vide- would surely be useful for a number of people. The Canteen can provide, if it is wanted, tea, coffee, milk shakes , swe'et.s , cigarettes;, biscuit s , various types of tinned goods and possibly sandwiches and buttered toa-st. But one can hardly expect the Manager to get in , 'the neees-sary stores, if he isn't able, to dispose of them except by throwing' them -out? If students are .interested in tlu- canteen, wouli they please drop a note to the Editor of 'Woroni' , indicating the time at which Ihey .would be likely to' attend...

JUNIOR COMMON.. ROOM Students will be glad to learn that operations are about to commence on the building of the new Junior Common Room. The Junior Com. will be located at one end of the large hall which was previously the Turner Hostel dining room and should be equally as pleasant and comfortable a place, if not more so, than its predecessor in Melbourne Buildings.

A carpet has also been chosen and it should not be too long before the Junior Com. is ready for occupation.
