PROMETHEUS—UNBOUND? [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
PROMETHEUS-UNBOUND? The figure in the dim shadows at Civic was hardly discernible as it timidly sank back into a doorway. It seemed so gaunt and shrunken that, as the hour was late. I. thought some enquiry was warranted. Fortunately it spoke first, murmuring faintly, '1 wonder if you can help me?' 'Hardly possible,' 1. said. : ; but ' what ?s the trouble ? ' ' ' ' Well, ? ' it replied,, 'i'm Shelley.' /'Yes,' I remarked, 'I'm chilly too : its this cold wind. ? ' ' No, ' ' it interrupted, ' ( 1 'in Shelley. You know, Percy Bysshe. ' ' ' ; Oh. ' ' 1 said, ' ' 1 ?m Wordsworth ; what can 1 do for you?' 'Well,' it quavered, punning horribly, 'Your word's worth something. Can you tell me about Prometheus V: ' What about it ? ' The figure commenced to sob. 'I put some of my flesh and blood, my own strength, into writing 'Prometheus Unbound*' and now the fear haunts me night and day that Prometheus may appear BOUND/* A spasm of coughing ricocheted up his chest through his Epipsychidion.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 3 June 1949
TO BE OR NOT TO BE This is the fourth issue of '-Student Notes' as a printed publication, and we feel it is time to review its future prospects, if indeed it has any. When consideration was first given to the printing of the i} Notes'* it was hoped that the contemplated change might appeal to students, and inspire a little interest and action from them. Unfortunately, this hope has not been fulfilled, and on present indications is not. Hkelv to be fulfilled. We have spent a very considerable amount of time in preparing each issue, in distributing it, and in chasing after advertisements, and we are tar from convinced that student reaction, in general, has made all our work worthwhile. Bequests have been made for additional staff, but the response so far has been negative; voluntary contributions have been neglig ible, in short, the general impression is that students feel that they have editors who will do all the neces-* sary work without their assistance and are therefore .quite ha...
UNIVERSITY ROSTRUM SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 17 June 1949
UNIVERSITY ROSTRUM SOCIETY Everyone should be interested to know that the University Rostrum Society has now been formed. It's aims are to gain practice and instruction in debating and all forms of public speaking. You have all known those occasions when you wanted to or had to make a speech, but either lacked the courage to do so or felt shamefaced and slightly ridiculous about the whole business. Every University man or woman should consider it part of his or her training to be able to sneak in nublic with somp. assurance The Society is open to members of the staff or students of the College, so come along and learn, among friends, where you needn't worry about your mistakes — everyone else will be making them too. Time of meetings presents some difficulties. As you may not. want to give up another night, meet ings have tentatively been fixed for alternate W ed- nesdays from 5-6 p.m., with an occasional evening meeting. If that doesn't suit you, let us know what would, and we shal...
A STUDENTS' HOLIDAY CAMP IN FRANCE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 17 June 1949
A STUDENTS' HOLIDAY CAMP IN FRANCE (Dr. E. K. Emmery, who has kindly contributed the article below, . joined the staff of the College at the beginning of the year. Widely travelled and with an ?inexhaustible fund-, of humour, Dr. Emmery describes in his own delightful ivay, how French students make the most of their University days. — Eds.) It is quite impossible to compare a N.TJ.A.U.S. Congress with a mere holiday camp for French stu dents ; I am only obeying the Editors' order by con juring up some of my happiest memories of a French Students' camp on the island of Oleron near La Rochelle, called 'Domino,' which for several years was ' ' the great event ' ' of my unive sity days. I only wish I could introduce you personally to my many friends over there: to Garaudy from Marseilles, the funniest of them all, to Tissot the gentle minstrel from B esa n con, to B osc, the philosopher from Lille, to the brothers Zeziger, the twin acrobats from Bor deaux,. and to all the hundreds of ot...
A LAST WORD [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 17 June 1949
A LAST WORD So far, there has been little or no response to our request in the last issue of the 'Notes' for more contributions, and, although we grant that there has not been very much time for you to put pen to paper, we feel that we should' affirm right here and now that we were, and still are, absolutely sincere in our stated intentions. There have been suggestions that our proposed retirement was announced merely to A A 1 n ?%» n v\ rl itrn n n-\ /\4- -»i a n 1 1 ?«» aii^ /% « , — !

At the last meeting of the Students' Representative Council we made it known that unless more contributions were forthcoming, then as far as we were concerned, the last issue of tli'e 'Notes' would appear on July 29. We repeat that we do not want to see the paper ' wiped, ' ' but unless students show in some concrete wa.y that they want the 'Notes' to be produced, then we've done all that we are ...
BEHOLD A BITE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 17 June 1949
BEHOLD A BITE To the Editor, As the fishing season for the A.C.T. is officially closed, it might reasonably be presumed that the con certed broadside in your last issue is not in the nature of a 'bait.' It might be so, but I rather t h i n k the t the vari ed attacks on stu d ent apa t h y had a genuine note, and that the writers were warming to a subject about' 'which they feel qualified to speak. As a matter of fact, I felt the full impact of your sincerity in the statement 'you can't run a success ful dance with a nucleus,' and thought, if they're such objectionable creatures why. not erect a high wire fence to keep them out, or state that no-one will be admitted if accompanied by a nucleus? On the other hand, why not take advantage of the unexpected intrusion, of this highly dangerous creature and advertise, as a special attraction, 'Jimmy D'Orsay and his All-new Nucleus?' I realise that all this twaddle is in exceeding bad taste, so I must restrain myself and realise the ' ' im...
HOCKEY NOTES Results of Matches, Saturday, June 4. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 17 June 1949
HOCKEY NOTES Results of Matches, Saturday, June 4. A Grade: Displaying the energy and vigour of a mud. scow stuck on the flats, Uni were extremely lucky to defeat Staff 2-1. Holgate opened Uni's account with a nice drive shortly after the game started. For the rest of the half, Uni was busily engaged keeping Staif out of its goal . E ven tu all v Staff broke through, making half-time scores one all. In the second half, Uni gave a splendid imita tion of a flock of dazed sheep. The only score in this session came when Gratton won' a penalty bully. Scorers for Uni: Holgate, Gratton. Staff: Wark. Best, players for Uni - None worth a mention. 'Congratulations to Staff on the splendid game they played. With a little more luck they would have pulled it off. B. Grade: Playing without a goalie, Uni fought out a drawn game with Old Canberra ns at Duntroon. In the first half both sides indulged in much unneces sary wild swinging of sticks resulting in barked shiiis and bruises. Uni scored in t...
WINTER [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 1 July 1949
WINTER This is a time of rain and darkness And it is hard Hard to find grace and grandeur, Hard to find songs to sing. Where are the green spring the golden -summer 1 Where are the flowers and sunlight ? And 0 the soft nights of summer, Moonlight, starlight, and the breeze That, stirred rich branches with the scent of roses) There is finality, there is death in this winter, Denial of renascence. Denial of spring and all that is lovely. It is not just the season, but the world ; (Cosmic darkness, universal rain) And such a mad and evil world it is is — Madness without, hope, merciless evil, No grace or grandeur, No songs to sing — That it is hard, That it is cruelly hard To trust, to believe in the return of Spring. W. SHAW.
IMPRESSIONS OF WASHINGTON, D.C. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 1 July 1949
L IMPRESSIONS OF WASHINGTON, D C. (Mr. 11. N. Trustcott , an Arts student at the College , lias recently returned from Washington, where he served on the staff of the Australian Embassy.) The casual visitor to Washington is impressed immediately by the grandeur of its public buildings, by its fine monuments and by its splendid parks, the most noteable of which, Rock Creek Park, winds, fol lowing the course of the attractive little Rock Creek, for ten miles through the suburban area and which provides a week-end paradise tor AVashmgton fami lies, particularly for those who live in the most thickly populated sections. If the visitor stays for a time he will recognise the quite unique and vital personality of the city. Ameri cans will hasten to say that, 'Washington is not typical of the United States, and indeed this is true, for like Canberra, it is essentially a Government city and the native AVashingtonians are far outnumbered by those who have left their home States for life in th...

NUCLEUS NEWS The crowd at; the picture show beat all previous records for evening meetings .this year. At the talk on N.U.A.U.S. there was an audience of five. This fine figure was more than doubled at Tuesday even ing's pictures—no less than eleven rolled up. Our salesmanship seems to be - ' getting better all the time. ' ' Whv. bv the tn rn of thp.

Or perhaps by then most of us will have crossed that grand old river the 'Styx,'' and- have reached our final resting place, where all is peace and where it never grows cold. But, as we look back over the years, the tears will fall (imaginary, of course), as we remember with pride how on that freezing night we all turned out to see 'The Australian Ballet' and 'Australia Presents.'
