YOUR PRESIDENT'S ATTITUDE TO THE N. U. A. U. S. QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 2 July 1948
YOUR PRESIDENT fS_ ATTITUDE TO THE ,N- ,UVA._UV S_f„ _QUgST ION0 Those students who have been' in 'the hah it of perusing SeP»C,o minutes as and when they appeal? on the College not ice-board .will be very much aware that the President is not at all in favour of the C ?U#CiS.Af,; continuing its affiliation : with N.UcA6UoS. He has voted - ( the. 'Constitution permits his deliberate vote) consistently- not only against continued' affiliation but also against .submitt ing the question to a General Meeting., This latter attitude, it. would seem* is more unforgiveable than the former but is it? The S«P#C. has- power cons titutionally, to conduct and superintend the business of the C*UbC.S.Ae and the S*P9C.' after lengthily discuss ing the question of af filiation' -with N&U.A.UcSc decided five votes to four not to affiliate in 19^8.

THE CASE FOR DISAFFILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 2 July 1948
THE CASE FOR DISAFFILIATION . . Obviously the questionof .affiliation or. disaffiliation with N .U.A .U.S. must be decided primarily in the light of the finances available and having regard to the paucity of the benefits received , it can be said that continued affiliation is not only uneconomical but also unjustifiable , Whilst it is admitted that in certain instances the National Union is a desirable organisation it can be shown that in 19-47 the C cU.C „ S0 A . received no worthwhile benefits but instead, due to the added expense; ^ (^4-3--3.9) of conducting the N .U.A.U.S. intervarsity debates in Canberra, the amount of cash and securities (.£68,15.11) at the beginning of 194-7 has dwindled to r33.15. 8 by-;the. eiid. of the year - an unforgiveable wastage of £35 ?0,1.,
AFFILIATION WITH N.U.A.U.S. IS PARTICULARLY COSTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 2 July 1948
AFFILIATION WITH N.U, A. U.S. IS PARTICULARLY .COSTLY . The compulsory fee for membership of the ? C 0U„C ,S. A „ is .10/- per annum - shared equally 'between the S0R;0C ; and Sports Council. . ; In: 194-7'. affiliation with N.U.A.U.S, cost the -S.R.C. £20.19.2 (or l/6 perheeid; for 273 students) and this year, if affiliation is decided the cost will be approximately £30.8.0 (or 2/- per head for 304- students^, Furthermore the 194-8 N 0U.A 0U„S 8 Council at Perth decided that the present financial arrangements were inadequate and proposed that if possible a standard per capita levy of 2/6 be introduced in 194-9. Is it any wonder that at the C eU0C 0S. A „ Annual General Meeting the move to increase the Association membership from 10/- to 12/6 failed - it deserved to fail I .. / Affiliation with N 0 U.A .11 0So is an absolute luxury and not/ail necessary because its facilities do not interest, by any means, the majority of students.

N.U.A.U.S. Decision Reached. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 July 1948
N. U. A. U. S. Decision Reached. At the Special General Meeting of the Student Body held last Friday night , a motion 'that the attitude of the present S. R . C . to the National Union was universe and unjustifiable, and that the notice of disaffiliation of our S.R.C. from the M). should 'be withdrawn' was defeated 17 - 1 6. The motion was moved 'by Don Home, and seconded 'by Nan Piggin. The notice of affiliation was given as from June 30th and must stand for three months 'before it takes effect ? So 'by the end of September ? our last tie with N.U.A.U.S. will 'be cut. The debate on the motion started with a discussion on the validity of proxy votes, and it was resolved that only members who were in the hall for the discussion and who had to leave' early for buses, or for other reasons, whould be entitled to 'proxy votes. It was further resolved that the vote on the issue should be taken at. 9.^5 p.m. , provided that by that time, all members present desirous of speaking, should hav...
A STUDENT'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 July 1948
A STUDENT* S ' VIEWS. ? ? I Dear Sir * I It is with considerable - trepidation that I address this I letter to you. The reason for the trepidation is that I may be classed I as one of those students who is 'not disinterested' in the students1 I activities, but who is precluded from taking an active part in those I activities by reason of other demands on his time. I As a matter of principle j, however, I felt it my duty to attend the special General Meeting (or that part of it which did not coincide with my attendance at lectures) which was called for Friday, 9th July, to consider the question of dis-aff iliat ion with N.U.A.U.S. The happenings at that meeting, the discussion and the voting on the question before the meeting will undoubtedly be reported elsewhere in your notes., and I do not wish to cover any of those matters. The matter with which I do desire to deal, however, is the resignation of members of the S.R.C. as a result of the decision. The action of the President in in...

Mr, Curr ie , who had also announced at the Special General Meetings .his intention of resigning from the S.R. C,. agreed to defer it until the next Meeting of the S.R,G, Had Mr* Gurr ie' declined this suggestion, the Meeting would have been without a quorum. Strong representations were made to Miss Piggin and Mr. Home by the Treasurer (Mr. Adams) and Committee men, Messrs Do no hue;:-: and Stor r 5 in the hope that the resignations might be-, with drawn but no amount of persuasion seemed likely to prevail.

The remaining members of the S,R,C, are on the lookout for some recruits, Are you interested?

'B1' Grade won on the 1st [ innings against' Turner, and Bub-District won outright from E*M*C# * The result of the 'B' Grade match confounded some of the critics who [ predicted that University would f ind . it a diff icult task to overhaul the 286 r uns scored by Turner on the f irst day ? The formidable Turner score was , mainly due to a solid century by George IIoolc. John Beaumont captured eight Turner wickets for 82 in a long spell of accurate spin bowling.

CRICKET [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 December 1948
J2212M2L '^'^^^JJJffiAtY / . / Owing mainly to dropped chances and lack of experience on turf, ^ University HBK Grade suffered its second defeat on the first innings, this time at the hands of the Manuka. Team. Sleeting to bat on what appeared to be an easy wicket University batsmen were unable to accustom themselves to the variations in nip and spin which the Manuka bowlers were able to cormiand. The only batsmen who were able to defy the attack were Bob White law who scored 55 and Gary Newman scoring-- 23, but even these players had their uneasy moments, A shower of rain fell about lj p.m. which seemed to worry the bowlers more than it did us and we concluded our innings at 123. At stumps Manuka had lost 2 for 39 and it looked as if anything could yet happen* But on the second day our fielding let us down. About six or seven * catches were dropped altogether and it seemed that our luckless bowlers -would have to clean bowl all the batsmen. Val Grattan was particularly v unfortunat...

O.: ii The 'B5f Grade team started well on the 1st day, dismissing 7 Kingston loafs itmen for 93 after reaching 185, thanks mainly to a solid knock of 68 by Jim Stewart 05 and an all-too-brief contr ibut ion of U5 by Do ug Traves .
