ttJ'H j — - j i — ? ? I, ? l_ ? _ j ' v.. ? i \v to the Editor. Dear Editor, Well 9 now that the 'Government ' has had its say, perhaps a few home truths may be placed before the constituents by the 'Opposition''1 . t It is apparent from the previous issue of this paper th,-t the Government treat the matter of misappropriation of student funds in so lijht a manner as to brin^ forth a sizeable collection of infantile poetry and pointless editorials. ] I myself consider this a just interpretation of the intellectual level of those remaining on the S.Ro C. After a painful perusal ? of these literary efforts I was able to draw, the conclusion that as well as attempting to hoodwink the wiser ex~me:dbers of the S.R.C. they are now attempt!.*^ to do the same to the s tudent | body in general# The editorial in the last issue of 'Woroni' stated * that the 'main argument is that there is not enough use for a utility to warrant It' ? This, like the rest of the editorial, is not on the beam. As...

s. r; c. members : reviled ?*' /v SHOCKING ALLEGATIONS (By a Specie.!- Correspondent) The best General Meeting for two years was held on Thursday, 16 th September. It lasted for over three lively hours, arid a good time was had by most. The first half of the meeting dealt with dull subjects like elections and liquor licences. ; These are reported elsewhere in this issue. ? * ? ....... . . At half past nine, after warming up, the Meeting turned to the Big Issue, the Bomb. The President said the meeting was not called in consequence of the Petition, because it had been changed after some people signed it (cries of ? .J Shame f, 'No1,' 'Rubbish1, etc.). The President called for a notion. Mr. Yell sprang to his feet and said that the meeting condemned the action of the S.R. C. in buying a' bomb', Mr. Packer sec ohded, and the field was away to a good start. ? v ' Mr. Yell said the method of going about the buying of the vehicle had been snide and underhand, and he had resigned for this ...
BOOK EXCHANGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 27 September 1954
BOOK EXCHANGE lit the beginning of the current academic year the. S.R,C. instit uted an arrangement whereby1 students w;ere able to buy- .and sell their used text-books* Although the scheme did not get under way until March, its success was considerable -about 150 books passed through the exchange - and it has been decided that it should be continued.

EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 27 September 1954
* 'EDITORIAL There is a letter to the Editor in this edition raise s ' an old bogey. Who is to be the Editor of 'Woroni11? Of course, Mr, Shakespeare is right, in most of what he. says. For years, a' small group (a very small group) pf devoted students has kept this rag going. This year, they have done better than ever., 11 issues have appeared. That is quite an achievement, and- earns higher recognition than it has got up to date. ' There; was a lot of talk among some after the last two issues ? that 'Woroni' was' biassed about the Bomb.. Well, I have heard it said that its Editorial on the subject was quite fair. Certainly it tried to be. But the problem goes deeper than that. There are very few people .around here who are interested enough to take ;,Woroni5t on, even though it involves no peddling of advertising and very little printing trouble. Now, the -S.R. C, has to have nine members. Is it any wonder that, when it is casting about looking for them it should look at !,Woroniu...

In all 34 students were interviews and the results obtained were as follows# All students believed that residential accommodation should be provided for full-time students and nearly all thought: it should also be provided for part-time students# We asked them whether they wanted University type residential colleges or hostels such as are provided for public servants in Canberra and a sma.ll majority plumped for the Colleges, mainly on the grounds that in them you would get the proper ...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 27 September 1954
. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Editor, 'WORONI'. Dear Sir, Nov; that we arc at last about to get rid of the old S.R.C.,- and get in someone who is willing to do a bit of real work (and not just five or ten hours a week), it is time that someone had a look at 'Woroni'. 0 Who has been running it all these months? Who is the real power behind it? Who decides what is to go in? More specifically, who decided that the three poems which I contributed during the year were NOT to? I suggest that if it is thoroughly investigated . it -will; be fou^d that there is a handfull of people, seven or eight at the most, who have had the lion!s share of the say. This is something which should.:not be tolerated in a democratic community, and I hope that the new S#R#C» will take most vigorous action to 'see that more of the students of the College, of whom there are, after all over J+00, are given a share in this paper which is put out in their name# ? ? jv'X Yours' faithfully, ' WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE 0/ Obv...
