LITERARY COMPETITION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
LITERARY COMPETITION. Entries have closed for this year's competition and are now being judged by Professor Hope. The winner will be announced in the next issue of Woroni, A number of entries were received for the poetry section, but the S.R.C, were disappointed with the general response. Woroni will print some of the entries in future issues, and may invite criticism. The College Executioner is anxious1 to have the head of the irresponsible person who left a new stove turned on one night last week.' The temperature had reached 700° before anyone was aware of trouble. We are fortunate that we still have a College at all. The College authorities, the S.R.C. and Woroni appeal to all students to be careful with electrical appliances. This applies particularly to the radiators in lecture-rooms. We don't want another fire! We've heard a whisper that the professor of Oriental Languages was- not amused to find his new tricycle missing from the parking area last week. Appears that Queen Mab...

WELCOME BACK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
? I ( ( ) M I ! V ? . a..^ ,/ ill K -oct. Another academic year has begun and we welcome a new complement of fresherq to our University. This year promises to turn out a continuation of last year's successful enterprise among the student population* and it is the earnest desire of the Students1 Association that this should be so. Already we have had a most successful Orientation Week and Sports Night at the College. From all present indications sport should reach an all time high in the College, under the leadership of Sports Council President Lloyd Melhuish and Secretary Duncan Ironmonger. All of last year!s teams will be fielded and several new ones are mooted for this term. University clubs , more than usual in number , are making special drives for increased memberships and expanded programmes this year. Most of them have already drawn up attractive programmes for their activities. The College Revue, well under way, promises in all ways to equal the spectacular presentation of 1...

SPORTS UNION ANNUAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
SPORTS UNION ANNUAL MEETING. The Annual Meeting of the Sports Union was to have been held on Monday of last week but had to be deferred because of i (1) No attendance^. (2) No Treasurer^ (3) No financial statement. Now the Treasurer has given an assurance that the last two failings are being taken care of| it remains for you to see that the first (and most important) one is too. The annual meeting of the Sports Union is now to be held on Tuesday* 19th April. Remember that the Sports Union is charged with providing for all sport witM.fr the College arid last year spent well over £100 - so the meeting is important. We'll be looking forward to seeing you. TUESDAY 19th APRIL AT 8 P.M. IN THE STUDENTS * COMMON ROOM. LLOYD MELHUISH. PRESIDENT, SPORTS COUNCIL.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Sir 9 In the editorial to this issue you appear to say that over the years a vicious circle has developed s There are not enough full timers because there are not enough day lectures; and there are- not enough day lec tures because there are not enough full timers ? If you agree that this is not the whole story, that there are other reasons why there are not enough full timers , then your point is a sound one. Clearly, the present position only hinders expansion. If there -is to be an increase in the full time body* this parti cular circle must 'be broken. Breaking the circle is not the students ' task,al though they may be willing to help in any way they can. They are here to study. Fo one can 'reasonably expect them to look after College expansion, and probably no one does. It is the Council, and possibly the academic staff itself, that should act. Hence, I gather, your suggestions that these bodies- take steps to institute day lectures wherever possible. So...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Sir, As a full time student of the College, I would like to take the opportunity of protesting against the lack of consideration shown to us 'by most of the academic staff. The general feeling seems to 'be' that as there are only about eight of us all together, our wishes and needs are unimportant. The main cause for complaint is the distribution of lectures. In previous years, when the full time student body Was even smaller, all lectures had to be taken with the part time body.. There is absolutely no reason why this arrangement should- be considered a precedent! Yet the majority of the lecturers absolutely refuse to give daytime lectures, from pure disinclination to do extra work, Now why, when they are employed on the same basis as lecturers in Sydney and Melbourne, can't they provide the same service as elsewhere? What does it matter how few of us there are - we are full timers and should be treated as such I In particular I would like to mention the lack...
EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
EDITORIAL. HAVE 'WE ANY REASON TO BE SMUG ABOUT OUR ' FIRST TWENTY-FIVE YEARS? / Those of. us -who go along to the Commencement Ceremony on Friday night are certain to hear speeches outlining the progress made by the College since it took its first unsteady steps back in 1930 . It 'will probably be pointed out that the student population has increased fairly steadily from the 34 in 1930 to the 456 (iric JO non-exam) in 1954. :~/efll be told that the academic staff has grown . considerably, that we now have eight professors and ?. umpteen lecturers. 'Students may complete degrees in Arts, Commerce and Law, and receive guidance in work for Master's degrees. We'll hear that the College has been the first Australian University to establish a course in Australian Literature, that we are consolid ating a Department of Oriental Languages, that. plans are afoot to provide Chairs in a number of subjects that now have only a senior lecturer. The- Library and Common Rooms will also rate a ment...

S.R.C. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 14 April 1955
S.R.C. Nominations for positions on the S.R.C. closed last Thursday. As late as Wednesday night the. only nominations received by the Secretary were : - As Arts Representative : Wendy Cromer., Chris Penders, Tim Ellis, John Carroll, L.H. Dalton. As Commerce Representative: John Robinson, Bill Thorne, Wendy Cromer John Carroll, L.H. Dalton. v As Lav; Representative : John Carroll, Ian Alexander. As Non-Faculty Representative; Bill Thorne, John Robinson. No one had nominated for President. The Secretary was expecting several last-minute nominations, and appeared confident that there should be sufficient for a full S.R.C. with President. He added that a decision on the method of election would be made as soon as the final number of candidates was known. We have received some criticism for the poor quality of the typing in the last issue of Woroni. We readily admit this fault, but in apologising would like to make it known that we were not entirely to blame. We didn't know till Monday t...

THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 April 1955
THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY. The College deserves warm praise for this year' s Ceremony of Conferring Degrees, held in the College Hall on rriday 15th April. Perhaps the most important function in the academic year, this annual ceremony entails considerable organisation and selection if it is to run smoothly and be satisfying. This year the organisation appeared to be perfect. Through no fault of the College the procession was a few minutes late in starting, but from then till supper 1-v hours later everything flowed swiftly, and surely . The -changeo vers from speaker to speaker and the awarding of degrees, diplomas and prizes were made with confidence and certainty o The line-up of speakers was the best this writer has seen. Speeches were short and interesting. They were well-balanced, contained an agreeable mixture of meat and miscellany, and never dragged. The night was topped off by a very good supper. Perhaps next year a little more time could be found for the winner of the -Rob...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 April 1955
Sir, A couple of smiles at the S.R.C, in your first issue deserve .en. answer, which find herewith. Admittedly there was no February meetingf .one good reason, was that with the Secretary out of town it was (under the Constitution) impossible to call one 5 another better reason was that, with the President and two members also away, and the Vice-President ill 5 a quorum was almost impossible even if a meeting had been called. Setting aside anything in the Constitution, it is true that wherever two or three of us are gathered together, there is an S.R.C. meeting, and the affairs of the Association were given some ..attention during February, even if the proper forms were not complied with. - : As for .the £4.0 (now £20 ) of Book Exchange money which I am holding , its owners may rest assured that it has not been allowed to lie idle. They can obtain it' (if at all) by applying at the Book Exchange whenever anyone is in attendance, which is on most week-days and on Saturday mornings ( ...
S.R.C. RETIRES IN TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 April 1955
S .Ro G o RETIRES IN TRIUMPH . Conscientious types, bless 1 em all. They didn't have a February meeting, but blow me down if they didn't make up for it only one week before . they vanished from human ken o : Amid the Revue performances this fine Labour team found time for a ten hour non-stop S.Ro Co meeting I Yes, after barricading themselves in against possible police raids, they sat down for to fake the ?'?financial statement and rig the elections. So successful were they that the former Treasurer has: now become our new President! Still, why should we worry 5 John's reliable even if he was prevented from changing his name six times while an undergraduate. We won't stretch this into a doctorial thesis. We only want to say that those who are 'in the know' wish to thank the retiring S 0R.C. for all they have done for us since their election thirteen months ago. The success of the Ball and the Revue, the final public work in their term of office, was well deserved. To those who are g...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 April 1955
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Sir, ' ? Your criticism' of the History Department ( 'Woroni' * 6 . 4. 55 ) was , I think, in extremely bad taster v ; Rather' than dajnning the. Department' on the petty complaints of a few students , you might hav/e commended the regular lecturer in British History for going to the trmihlfi of fi-ndinp- ,n. person to take his -olace durine his ' enforced absence. I do not wish to fall into the same habits of your staff, Mr. Editor, but 'I am bound to ^oi'ht out that on many other similar occasions , lectures have been completely abandoned' without prior notice, the students having made the journey to the ? College quite unnecessarily. . ' I must add that, concerning Miss Thompson, I thoroughly agree* with you, Mr. Editor, when you say iv is. of little use to 'sling mud1' now. It is questionable whether you have any right to sling mud then or now. Miss Thompson has- good academic qualifications to tutor in History. That you, Sir, thought her unqualified, is o...
STUDENTS LIVES ENDANGERED. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 April 1955
STUDENTS LIVES ENDANGERED. If you hear of Bruce Hope's execution you'll know the Doc Evatt . has been 011 the warpath again . But this is unlikely, for Bert was one of the. 800, «odd' who laughed their heads off at this take-off in the Revue. Surprising' Canberra and themselves as well, students staged a first-class show that brought continual laughter and applaus e from appreciative audiences . For three nights nthe worthy public servants' and other oddities of this fair city were treated to a Revue thei College can justly be proud of „ John Carroll as Harold White,? Tim Ellis and Barbara Mint o as visiting Americans ° George Cobham as Prof oBurton; Lloyd Melhuish lis Petrov^ John Edwards as Artie Fadden, backed by other notorious members of the student body did a darn good job. So successful was the Revue that on the second night a tape recording- was taken for the College archives. The Principal was most enthusiastic, and general clamour is now directed towards making the Revue a...
