APARTHEID POLICIES IN SOUTH AFRICA The following is an extract of a letter received by the S.R.C. from the International Department of N.U.A.U.S.: 'The National Union of Australian University Students has .received much information recently from South Africa concerning proposed racial segreg ation in the Universities of Witwaters rand and Capt Town, and we feel bound to support as actively as possible, the claims of academic freedom' voiced by many opponents of Dr. Malan 's apartheid policies..

GLEANINGS FROM THIS WEEK'S LECTURES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 June 1954
GLEANINGS FROM THIS WEEK'S LECTURES Top level administrators in America change their jobs almost as often as they change their wives. In almost any field two men together can do more than two men working separately. This does not, however, apply to little boys. Two little boys together only equal half a little boy, while three little boys together are not a little boy at all. Pub. Admin. . . . .
LIBEL INVITED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 June 1954
LIBEL INVITED There are over 300 students at this college. Most can write, unless the Education Department is even more culpable than we thought. The editor craves criticism and promises to become a life-long friend to anyone who openly libels him in print. Does any oth;er editor offer such generous concessions?
"THE DEBATE" (or "Where the National Capital of Australia should be" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 June 1954
'THE DEBATE' (or 'Where the National Capital of Australia should be' As a result of a very lively, and in parts, hilarious debate held in the Students* Common Room on Thursday, 10th June, 1954, it was decided that the National Capital of Australia should be moved to Sydney. The debate was on a Parliamentary basis, and in parts consisted of very fervent ad .hominem attacks on the various speakers ? However the main text of the government Ts argument consisted of . some very good and salient points. Giving to the efficiency of. the Hansard Reporter (George II) most of the governmoUG Ts' argument has been preserved for posterity. It ran principally along these lines ? 'The functions of the National Capital are to be the seat of the national Government, and the administrat ion accruing from that government. However, before these two functions are practicable, there are certain, necessary prerequisites for the site of the capital,' Firstly , it must be readily accessible . from all parts...

THE NICE NATURES OF EDITORIAL STAFF Our staff are very amiable souls. They keep a straight face when 'they get: single-spaced copy. They do not flinch when it is written on both sides of the. paper. They smile when it is illegible and possitively jump for joy when it arrives days late. The editor wonders sometimes - are they mad or merely patient? ? ? ? ?
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 June 1954
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sir, I hear .with regret of the lack of young ladies at the last S.R.C. dance , as I remember many happy evenings at Friday night 'hops' when I was a lass at the College. ' Show some spirit pirls! Come along and dance all through the night, as I used to, to give the young men some- pleasure. Yours more in sorrow than in anger, 'Mother of Ten'. , , , . ? Sir, Now. that the Debating Society has given a clear decision against the transfer of the National Capital to Sydney, it becomes even more urgent to attend to a major inadequacy in Canberra's sporting resources. I refer, of course, to our lack of an efficiently run two -up school, hitherto barred- by. Mr. Ken Tughes , on the ground that this counter attraction might reduce the six o'clock swill attendances. Officialdom is, however, relaxing its unco-operative attitude - the Territorial Officers have already agreed in principle to monthly raids and a standard scale of 'presents' - and the 6.R.C. would do well to...

June .-w hen John Edwards as 'Prime Minister' ana John Carroll as 'Leader of the Opposition' debated the important question of changing the prevailing .code of morality. The 'Prine 'Minis ter',! maintained that our . .prevailing code : is. based, on the Codei Mos'ei, the tenets of w3ich are far from suitable for the conditions prevailing in modern ' life . The' 'Leader of the Oppositiorl, on the other hand, in a speech which contained one of the best - or worst - examples of mixed metaphors ever heard, held that we. get alon^ very well as we are and there is no need for a change except in- a very few particulars # One of the changes advocated by the 'Leader of the Opposition' was a tax on love - f ree ? or ?? o the rwise .

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 5 July 1954
LETTERS TO THE DITOR Sir, ; I ^ - J I would like to endorse whole-heartedly ' the sentiments of 'Mo ther-of-TenH as expressed in the last issue of i?Woroni'*o After each dance held at the College, my student son mutters the same-phrase - 'still' not -enou .h j;irls.T. The situation has become a sore point in; our family 'because, for \everal day's, sonny hardly says a word, except - to ' burs t out occasionally - 'stupid, creatures^ why won't they come? ' - or - rtThey say they w-za't ^o unless they are asked but how in Heaven's name can we ask them, if we don't know them first?'. And? strain as all this is on. the family's nerves* I mus t agree with him. It seeus to me tha t these informal dances are a good place for the girls and boys to ^et to -.know each other | and as f^r a.s I know, there , is no reason why girls should, stay away just because they are not asked by any particular boy. .However, it may be that this pro test is useless - that the romantic atmosphere of a certain...
