CANBERRA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CRICKET CLUB The 1948-49 Season [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 22 April 1949
CANBERRA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE CRICKET CLUB The 1948-49 Season During the past season, the University Cricket Club again fielded two teams, one in the District 'B' Grade and one in the ' Sub-District' competi tion. Our application for 'A' Grade status was refused by the A.C.T. Cricket Association, mainly because we have no turf wicket available. The 'B' Grade team acquitted itself well during the season, winning one match outright and six on the first innings. The side lost three matches on the first innings and two outright, in one of which it led on the first innings. The points table has not yet been completed, but a preliminary (unofficial) survey gives the five leading teams as follows: Ainslie 93, Navv 75, Manuka 69, Universitv 62, Queanbeyan 61. Several outstanding performances with bat and ball were recorded, and the following tables show the leading players in the batting and bowling averages. BATTING Highest In'gs. N.O. T. Runs Score Avg.

HOCKEY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 22 April 1949
HOCKEY NOTES On Saturday, April 9, University played two matches against Barton. These were keenly contested, . but in both University finished in front. In the first match, Barton established an early lead, but University defence, ably led by Kaye (he lost 41bs., so we're told), eventually settled down and gave their forwards a feast of the ball. Final score 5-2. The second match was fast and open. 'Bulldozer' Gratton scored three goals. Score 3-1.
EDITORIAL COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 6 May 1949
EDITORIAL COMMENT / A University is not intended these days to be a prison-house where its inmates are doomed to spend their every moment poring over text books and endeavouring, in as short a time as possible, to obtain a degree, simply /because it might en Ivan ce their chances of promotion in the department or factory, or in the office. Academic qualifications, it is true, are desirable, but essential though they may be — and many would even doubt that they are essential. — should never be regarded as the sole end of a stu dent's university days.

A STUDENTS' CONGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 6 May 1949
; xx inn! j A STUDENTS' CONGRESS \ ; i - ? D V ! (T7ie author of this Article, Mr. Pierre Button, is a diplomatic cadet at the College this year, a graduate and a former member of the delating team of the University of Tasmania . Mr. Button does not attempt to cover the official side of the N.U.A.U.S. Congress at Tallebudgera, but merely gives a few personal impressions and memories. We hope to let you, have another article in the near future covering the Congress more from the official vieivpoint. — Eds.) During mv years at the University of Tasmania my interest in N.U.A.U.S. had been no more than that of the average student (perhaps less). I knew of its existence, had a vague idea of its functions, and gathered with a certain amount of suspicion that it absorbed a portion of my union fees. However, after viewing at close quarters a portion of the organisation and activity of N.U.A.U.S., as represented at the 1948 inter-varsity debates, and prompted by the natural desire to spend a...
HOCKEY NOTES The Glorious Debacle [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 6 May 1949
HOCKEY NOTES The Glorious Debacle A comment by a very small boy rather summed up the match against Sydney University on April 24. While watching a strong Sydney attack in the latter stages of the game he reniarked 'It's not fair. If Canberra only had more players we'd win.' The match opened with an extremely strong attack by Canberra, who within a space of five min utes had achieved one long and two short corner penalties, but these advantages were to no avail. Syd ney, fighting desperately for its honour, cast discre tion to the wind, picked up its skirts, decided the honeymoon was through, and seized both the ball and the initiative. It lost the ball on several occasions, but having stowed the initiative into its pocket, kept it there until the end. From the second short corner Sydney cleared strongly to their left winger, who finding himself with the ball and with only the Canberra left back and goalkeeper defending, broke through to score. From the centre play-off the ball swung...
N.U.A.U.S. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 6 May 1949
N.U.A.U.S. The following news items which we have extracted from recent issues of the N.U.A.U.S. Newsletter should be of interest 1o most students:— C.R.T.S. and C.F.A.S. In view of: the financial difficulties usually asso ciated with pursuing a University course, N.U.A.U.S. is at present working for improved and extended financial assistance for students. The .194.9 Council recommended that strong repre sentation should be made to the Commonwealth Government, through the Universities Commission, for a financial assistance scheme aimed at: (a) Stepping up .Commonwealth Financial 'Assist ance Scheme subsidies to the level of C.R.T.S. allow ances as the latter system declines. (b) Extension, of the number of subsidised places and -liberalisation of subsidies and means test, so that economic circumstances will never be a bar to a student who wishes to undertake a University course. (c) Obtaining a system in ...which means test and subsidies are responsive to changes in. the cost of liv...

STUDENTS' REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL Picture Night and Dance [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 6 May 1949
STUDENTS' REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL Picture Night and Dance .At a recent meeting of the S.R.C., arrangements were completed for holding a picture night and a students' dance this term. Unfortunately, it has since been learnt that the hall will be unavailable, so the picture night has been postponed until next term. ? However, everything's teed up for the dance which will be held at the Manuka Tennis Pavilion on Sat urday, May 21, from 9 p.m. till midnight. Admission will probably be 2/- per person, and will include an excellent supper. To make the supper really excel lent, we ask all womenfolk attending to fetch along a cake or cakes, if possible. All students and friends are warmly invited to attend, and it is hoped that with 'your .support the dance will set a new high for the College. Student Matters The Registrar has been approached with a view to allowing smoking during lectures (at least, at. the discretion of lecturers) and to change the commence ment time of those lectures on F...
EDITORIAL COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 20 May 1949
EDITORIAL COMMENT , Sir Robert Gar ran, in his Commencement Address, spoke of plans which the Council had for the future development of the College. As a commentary on his words one might add, 'No sooner said than done,' for yet another appointment has been made to the academic staff. It was announced only a week or two ago that Mr. L. F. Crisp, M.A. (Adelaide), M.A. (Oxon), has been appointed to the Chair of Political Science. We hope that his association with the Uni versity will be both happy and lasting. However, apart from increased academic staff, t.h ere appear' to be other d evelopments in the offing. From the secret consultations within the Council .Room, whisperings have been heard that the concep tion of a residential College has been kept well to the fore. In fact, so much so, that it appears that a Hall of Residence may soon be available for the accommodation of students— and within reasonable distance of the College. ? We are always glad to hear of any advances made in...
UNIVERSITY EDUCATION ON THE ASSEMBLY LINE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 20 May 1949
UNIVERSITY EDUCATION ON THE ASSEMBLY LINE (We feel that the writer of this article , Mr. II. Gordon Brooks, needs no introduction from us. lie will be lcnoivn as a contributor to the 'Notes' in the pastf 'and of course to all hockey players as a most persistent Trea surer i In his article Mr. Brooks lias given one side of a very controversial, subject and ive hope , as he himself does, that there will be a spirited reply —Eds.) Year after year at Commencement ceremonies we are told of the decline of liberal education in Univer sities from centres of 'thought into mere machine shops for churning our passports to financial advan tage. There are few of us who, in our hearts, do not revolt against this, and who realise only too clearly that even in Canberra, or perhaps particularly in Canberra, our University College is primarily an assembly line, taking in the ''freshers'' at one end of the chain, passing him from one p re-set jig to another, then releasing a nicely packaged and self c...
