THE DUCHESS OF MALFI IN A REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 20 May 1949
TKE DUCHESS OF MALFI IN A REVIEW As entertainment 'The Duchess of Malfi' satis fied. It had spectacle— greatly aided by some of the most attractive costumes seen on stage — and pace. But these merits only emphasised the play's main fault. S. R; Phippard, the producer, interpreted the play in terms of high spots interspersed with pedestrian interludes. The play did not flow as a coherent whole. The overall effect was episodic, emphasising the con fusion of Webster's development of his plot. The most disconcerting high spot was the rest ruction of the statue and pedestal, so conveniently placed in the Cardinal's study. It was a pity that this studied effect was obscured to part of the audience by Ferdi nand's broad back. On the credit side full marks go to the lusty vigour of the production. It captured the flamboy ant a morality of the Elizabethan era, while missing out on its pageantry. Only two of the cast — G. Hunter and K. Haniiam— used sweeping gestures in the opening scene. Suc...
YOU DIDN'T SAY IT? [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 20 May 1949
YOU DIDN'T SAY IT? Yon thought of:' it, yes; you saw clearly the flaw in the argument advanced, and. you didn't. 'like to point it out. Perhaps the chairman looked severe or there were present a few hypercritical 'high-brows. ' or some leering males or sneering females- You did not want to look foolish, so you didn't speak. Don't let it happen again. Speaking in public is just a matter of practice. Come along and start practising at the College at 8 p.m.. on Tuesday, May 31. Don't come just to listen.' Prepare a short, speech on 'any subj ect, even if only one m inute 1 on g.
A STORM IN A TEA CUP [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 20 May 1949
A STORM IN A TEA CUP To the Editor, Tea drinking is a pleasant habit and those of us who indulge in its delights must, 1 realise, be prepared for the penalty of clearing away. It is regrettable and 1 appreciate his feelings-— that a, senior officer of the College was greeted one morning by an array of tea cups waiting to be washed. His tidy mind answered their call— but we day students, all of us, have now to pay the price of his labour. The kitchen is locked, against us— dash it. We must go to Leo's ! It would be unreasonable to deny the grounds for protest on this matter, b ut as each group of cad ets has a representative especially nominated to meet the College Staff on such occasions, would it not have been more reasonable to see them first, or approach the students as a body, instead of penalising them for a fault they could not all have committed ? This is meant to be a university and according to tradition; universities are places where students gather to learn, not as childr...
SPORTS COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
SPORTS COUNCIL The main item of discussion at the Sports Coun cil meeting on May 25 was Sports' Colours — their award and their future form. The recommendation of the Sports' Colours sub committee that a Colour be awarded to Nev Kruger for his sterling efforts on the cricket field in 1946-47, was unanimously endorsed by the Council. After some considerable talk on what form Colours should take in future, it was wisely decided to ask each sporting club to submit their suggestion for a pocket design to the Council, and, on the basis of these sug gestions, a general form would then, be finalised. A grant of £10/5/- was made to the S.B.-.C. as the Council's contribution to the cost of last year's 1 ' Notes. ' ' Other minor business was settled and the meeting close, to meet again on the last Wednesday in June — note the date you sporty types. -.?:;'.'?
INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS Many students, though, keenly interested, in the study of international affairs, are perhaps unaware of certain facilities that exist in this field. The Can berra Branch of the Australian Institute of Interna tional. Affairs is a particularly active body. Its Lib ray, as a matter of fact, is tucked, away in a corner of the College Library. The Australian Institute, an .unofficial organisa tion, aims to promote the study of national and inter national affairs in a spirit of strict scientific detach ment. It is affiliated with the Royal Institute (Cha tham House) in London. The Institute in Canberra, with a membership of almost 100, does quite a job in disseminating material on international affairs, co-operating in Aus tralian research and in making available a wide range of periodicals and publications (including American) at reduced rates. Evening meetings, which include talks by promi nent people followed by lively discussion, are a lead ing feature of Canber...
STUDENTS' DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
STUDENTS1 DANCE To the Editor, ' . , On behalf of the Student's Representative Coun cil, 1 should like to thank those students and friends for coming along to the dance on Saturday, May 21. Although, numerically, the dance can only be describ ed as a dismal failure, those who did attend seemed io ....nave a nappy aim eiijovauie lime. To the organising committee, to those who helped with .-the supper,- especially to Margaret Easton, and to those av ho brought along cakes, our very warm thanks are due. Their spontaneous assistance and support prevented the. dance from being a complete failure. I should also like to take this opportunity 'of saying a few words to the student body as a. whole. 'Whilst it is proverbial that students in gen eral reveal a remarkable apathy towards student activities and are completely unpredictable, students in Canberra seem to lack any sort of pride at all in their' own College. When it is recalled that student dar-ees were once never anything but an outs...
PERSONALLY SPEAKING [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
PERSONALLY SPEAKING Our congratulations and,- we're sure, the best wishes of all students and staff, go to Patsy and Bob Hamilton on the recent addition of a daughter to their family circle'. Both Patsy and the infant are very well we hear, and Bob is slowly regaining his equilibrium and coming back to earth. The very best to all three. Bob, you're a lucky man. Our congratulations are also extended to that old College stalwart, Nev Kruger, on the occasion of his being awarded a Sport's Colour for his cricket acti vities during the 1946-4/ season. As an outstanding player and a great club supporter Nev has richly earned h is ' ' colour ' ' — we d i ps o ur 1 i d .
HOCKEY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
HOCKEY NOTES The A Grade game against Checks at. Turner on Saturday, May 21, was marred by much petty bicker ing. All players -are old enough now to restrain themselves when the play gets too 'willing' (which .sometimes does happen at tense moments) and should remember that the game is meant to be played for its enjoyment, not as a life and death struggle— and this remark is not limited to Uni players only. After all, this sort of thing does not benefit the game. Wo. should be fiiad if someone would politely inform our one and only supporter that although we appreciate his support we do not relish his continual side-line earbashing (particularly the raucous per sonal references'). University supporters will be pleased to note that we still hold the Dick Grey Challenge Cup as a result of the draw with Checks. Results of Matches, Saturday, May 21. A Grade v. Checks: The first' half of this match . was even and good, considering the state of the ground. Joyce netted, a. gift goal for C...
STUDENT APATHY [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
STUDENT APATHY Need we tell you that student spirit at the College at the moment barely equals that which one would expect to find at a second-rate secondary school. Need we also tell you that the reason, for this is the un equalled apathy of the student body as a whole. True it is that there is a small nucleus of students ready and eager to participate in student activities and so derive the maximum benefit from their days at the College. But this is. not enough. What is needed is numbers, not a nucleus. As was shown only too clearly the other night, you can't run a successful dance with a nucleus. So, what about it — don 't leave everything to the other fellow — shake off this mental paralysis and emerge from your cocoons. Attend student functions and play an active part in moulding your own character and that of the college.
WORLD STUDENT RELIEF [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
WORLD STUDENT RELIEF V In 1940 the three major international student organisations, International Student Service, Pax Eomana, and the 'World's Student Christian Federa tion, founded the European Student Relief Fund. Three years later, with, the linking of its Asian and European sections, this continental relief fund took on a universal aspect, and became known as World Student Relief. In 1947 the three original consti tuents of this organisation were joined by the Inter national Union of Students. .Nme years 01 work are therefore -to- the-, credit of W.S.R., whose activities have expanded annually. By pooling all available resources, W.S.R. has been meet ing the war-created needs of students, its basis being the belief that the university community of the world is one, and that the needs of any section of that com munity are the concern of all its members. The past nine years have seen, that belief expressed both in the collection, of funds in colleges and universities throughout t...
