A BOOK FOR YOUR SHELVES Donald of China, by Earl Albert Selle [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 1 July 1949

A BOOK FOR YOUR SHELVES Donald of China, by Earl Albert Selle W. II. Donald, an Australian, went to China in 1903 as sub-editor of the China Mail. He found life in the European colony of Hangkonk nostalgically and unrealistically focused on Europe, and so deter mined to investigate Chinese affairs himself and pre sent them in his paper. Later he left the Mail and became China correspondent for several overseas papers. uoiiaicl possessed probity and nxedness or prin ciples which immediately won the trust of the Chin ese. H'e never touched liquor and never gave away a confidence, while he had the ability to sum up a situation clearly and with, foresight. For most of his time in China he continued as a journalist and so maintained an independence he refused to forego for bribe or salary. Nor did Donald learn the language (or eat Chin ese food ) . Yet, after his brief visit to Canton he was appointed adviser to the Viceroy of Southern China, who continued to ask his help even when his p...

HOCKEY NOTES Inter-University Hockey Carnival—Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 1 July 1949

HOCKEY NOTES Inter-University Hockey Carnival — Sydney. Despite a promising beginning the King s birth day week-end for the S.C.A.D. Shield Games was not successful from the viewpoint of hockey honours — but what it- lacked in sporting success was more than compensated by its social brilliance. Almost enmasse the team left Canberra by the 4.15 train on the afternoon of Friday, June 10. Wives were very much in evidence for the first time, whilst several interesting identities also made their presence felt either before or during the long journey to the metropolis, notably our Skipper's cobber, 'The Sup- . porter,' and an old school mate of the team's, man ager. 'Homlong Pead.' A discreet veil must be drawn over the happen ings of the Saturday morning, for while the family men shopped for ??'all day suckers' for the families left behind and the wives played ducks and drakes with their husbands' pocket books, rumour hath it that numerous publicans jacked up their proiits by an extra 20...

JOHNNY BELINDA [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 15 July 1949

JOHNNY BELINDA It see ins that lately Hollywood has learned some thing from English, French and Italian films— some- thing of realism and maturity, of truth in dialogue, setting and story. 4 'The Search,' 'The Snake Pit,' ''Yellow Sky,'' 'Act; of Violence' and 'Johnny Belinda' had these qualities and it is 'Johnny Bel inda' that I have set out to review. We all know what it's about— a deaf mute girl who is attacked by a drunk fisherman, has an illegiti mate child to the horror of the village community, and finally finds happiness with the doctor who taught and helped her. We all know too that Jane Wvman won on Oscar for it, and very rightly, too. Her expressive face and especially her eyes were unforgettable; they made a classic of the scene where 'shame came out of the shadows. ' Granted,- she was magnificent: but was the film worthy of her? I am not quite sure, but I think so. There were so many little gems: Belinda with the new-born calf . . . the bullocks at the mill . . . Black...

STUDENT FRATERNITIES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 15 July 1949

STUDENT FRATERNITIES (Mr. Lem Naar, a first year Law student and mem ber of the S.R.C., recently arrived in Australia from Europe.) To a European the most disconcerting tiling about university life in Australia is the complete absence of fraternities. To him membership of a fraternity was the major attraction of being a university stu dent, and to be a student and not a member of a fraternity or sorority would have been incomprehen sible. Why, he would have missed the very essence or university, or should we say, student lire. F rater nities have no direct connection with academical work, their importance lies on the social side, although their consequences are much more far-reaching. Fraternities are a characteristic feature of most old European Universities, particularly those in Northern Europe. Without these student brother hoods we should probably be unable to find the many references on the pa ges of history books to students ' parts in political development on the continent. ...

WOT, NO CHARACTER [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 15 July 1949

WOT, NO CHARACTER To the Editor, In recent issues of the 'Notes' readers have been exhorted to come ..along and have their character moulded by taking part in activities arranged by the S.K.C. Judging by the abuse hurled at the heads of those who decline, this refusal is a shameful sign of apathy and mental paralysis. Just why the S.R-.C. is so anxious to mould characters is difficult to un derstand. Mr. Brooks, in his article, states that a traditional ideal of universities is to be 'moulders of characters'. But is this really a proper function of a university, and if so, are universities properly qualified institutions to fulfil this purpose? The proper function of a university is the amass ing and spreading of knowledge. The universities have parcelled out knowledge in subjects and courses and have provided an index and guides to show the student around . . . but it is the student who must use his discrimination in choosing what he wants and needs. By the time a student approache...

LADIES IN RETIREMENT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 15 July 1949

LADIES IN RETIREMENT The Canberra Repertory Society may be congratu lated for its able presentation of this cleverly con trived thriller. The dialogue of the play is decidedly inadequate . for the load it has to bear. Ellen's conflicts should become intensified after she has murdered her bene factress, and installed her two ' pixilated' sisters in the former's home. However, conflicts of conscience cannot be conveyed by the mouthing of platitudes, and Joan lumber s failure to satisty, m this key role, was inherent in the writing. Even so, it cannot be claimed that she did justice to the part, as written. Her voice rarely wavered from a note of patient suff'erin g, into which under currents of emotion were not permitted to break. But the will to express was strong in Mrs. Kimber, and she poached upon the pre-rogatives of the fool, the fop, and the mime, to compensate with grimaces for the flatness of her voice. On a naturalistic stage facial expression is required, not contortion. In...

SPORTING HIGHLIGHTS Hockey, Saturday, 2nd July. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 15 July 1949

SPORTING HIGHLIGHTS Hockey, Saturday, 2nd July. A Grade: Checks won a very interesting game, 3-1. University's stocks slumped in the. first half when Checks' forwards played havoc with our defence to the tune of three goals to nil. In the second half play was even and University notched the only goal when -Newman. .'scored from a long corner. Best play ers for Uni: Adams and Osborne. B Grade : In a fast, open game at Griffith, Uni continued their undefeated run by downing Kingston. Uni attacked strongly from the first bully, and after 15 minutes of play (mostly in the opponents' half and circle) Dean netted a nice pass from Hill. Shortly afterwards Dean again goaled to give Uni a 2-nil lead. Fighting back determinedly, Kingston scored just, before half time. In the second half Kingston attacked strongly, but Pickering's powerful play pushed them back from the half-way line. Uni went to, a 3-1 lead when Dean scored his third goal. Kingston were still full of* fight, and despite solid...

EDITORIAL COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 29 July 1949

EDITORIAL COMMENT After the Principal's talk about the future of the College at the recent University Association Luncheon, this would seem to be both the time and place to ask ourselves just where the students fit into the picture. Of course, we know the University is in the end for their benefit and that some people would add that, this being the case, students should be quite content and accept everything without con sidering the possible effects 'themselves. But surely this savours a little of the lazy man s attitude. In fact, we can see no reason why students should not play an important and ever-in creasing part in the development of their College. The present time provides a unique opportunity for an attempt to seek and obtain the co-operation of the student body in implementing the Council's ambitious plans, by allowing them to be represented on the Council. Although Professor Burton 's exper i ence in Melbourne doesn 't provide a helpful precedent, it certainly does not fol...

THE COLLEGE AND THE FUTURE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 29 July 1949

| \-y\uutvv^ THE COUBGC^ICRDTH^ FUTURE At a University Association Luncheon, held in the College on Friday, July 15, Professor Burton gave a 'brief talk on the plans for the future development of the College. LioSc v/ith the National University. Professor Burton stated -that the College Council aimed at establishing a sound University in Canberra on a par with other Universities, to serve at least as a regional centre for the Southern District. What ever the final status of the College — whether it re | mamed mclepenclent or became an integral part 01 the National University — it was intended that it should play its full part in the community. Even if - it became part of the National University it was ' hoped that this would be done on a basis of equality. r Professor Burton did not consider that the National * University would always be extensively devoted to t research. ? The development of the social sciences and hu t inanities in the College would ena.ble contacts to be r mad© w...

CORRESPONDENCE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 29 July 1949

CORRESPONDENCE From H. Gordon brooks: While wholeheartedly agreeing with much of Miss Crook's letter I am rather at a loss to understand the emphasis on the 'character building' function of the University College which she apparently saw in my recent article. Insofar as the teaching of under-graduates to think constitutes ' character building' I consider that it should be the primary function of any adult educational institution, iviiss urooK s amassing ancl spreading of knowledge' being merely incidental to this. However, this represents the ideal rather than the reality. As long as a degree is represented as an economic asset and as long as Canberra under graduates retain career ambition in the Public Service the present 'assembly line, of .university, education''* is likely to continue. Miss Crook completely exonerates the University authorities from responsibility for the ' machine shop' and sees in the regimentation of studies a bene volent university guiding 'Babes in the Wood...
