COLLEGE SPORTING FIELDS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
COLLEGE SPORTING FIELDS The Registrar recently informed lis that it is hoped to include in the future College buildings, faci lities for holding dances and plays, dressing rooms, showers, Refectory, Common Room, etc. It goes with out saying that this will -be welcomed by all students, but as these facilities will not be available for some time perhaps a start could be made on sporting facili ties now. The present College playing helds on the Acton Mat are seldom if ever used by the College clubs. In any case, we have it on fair authority that the section of the Acton fields belonging to the College is that section comprising a Rugby football field. We have no Rugby team these days, so it naturally fol lows that the College finds little use for Acton Plat. The question we would like to put is, why would it not be possible to go ahead immediately and pre pare a University sporting ground on the 'site re served for Univerasity jmrposes?' If this is not feasible, and it's an even money ...
AUSTRALIAN POETRY TO-DAY [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
AUSTRALIAN POETRY TO-DAY (By T. Inglis Moore) What is Australian poetry like? Where is it going? How far is it distinctively Australian ? How good is it as poetry? Australian poetry, to begin with, is primarily youthful. As a nation, Australia is not even half a century old. Early writing was derivative, and indi genous work did not appear until the 1880 's, that is Australian literature has had only about 70 years in which to develop. Our writing to-day, including poetry, is still youthful in. age and spirit. It has the weaknesses of a young country, of a people busied until recently in pushing forward the frontiers of settlement, with scant leisure or inclination for cultu ral matters. Our poetry lacks spirituality in gen eral, reflecting' the callow materialism and shallow pragmatism of contemporary Australian society. Like our people, it is often either crude or conventional. It is notably deficient in subtlety, polish and com plexity of older, more highly sophisticated societie...
PROMETHEUS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
PROMETHEUS You will recall that in the last issue of the 'Notes.'' -we '.promised' to let you have some more details on this and next year 's issues of the College magazine, 'Prometheus.' Unfortunately, for reasons too diverse to enumerate, we still cannot give you the exact date 'Pormetheus' will be on sale. The best we can do at the moment is to say that it will be out very soon and certainly before the end of this month. The price will be in the vicinitv of a bob and distri bution will be effected through the usual 'Student * Notes' channels. Copies will also be available at bookstores, newsagents, etc. Sale will not be restrict ed to College students — in fact we want everybody who can read to have a copy. Needless to say, any * efforts you can make to publicise the magazine will ' be truly appreciated. * Next year, as you know, we will be celebrating the 21st anniversary of the College. 'We would there ' * fore like, if it is humanly possible, to bring out next year's issue of ...
HOCKEY NOTES B Grade Grand Final, Saturday, 10th September. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
HOCKEY NOTES B Grade Grand Final, Saturday, I Oth September. Queanbeyan won the 1949 Premiership Pennant by defeating University 2 goals to nil at Griffith . The first half saw Queanbeyan oil the attack early with the University defence unable to settle down. Good work by Home, Linford and Rogers kept Quean beyan out for the first twenty minutes and at the other end the hard hitting Queanbeyan backs un settled the University attack. Queanbeyan Js first goal came from a scrimmage in the circle, an angled shot trickling across the line. University fought back in an effort to equalise but missed several opportunities of scoring when in posi tion in the circle. Queanbeyan also missed oppor tunities, including four penalty corners which they failed to convert. At half time the scores were 1-nil. The second half opened with both sides playing good hockey and University seemed to have the edge temporarily. However, play swung from one end to the other without either side being able to scor...
PERSONALLY SPEAKING [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
PERSONALLY SPEAKING W e recently said au revoir to our old friend Ken Crawford, who departed from Sydney on the Orontes accompanied by his wife and kiddies. Ken, who took out his Bachelor of Economics at the Sydney Shop and was doing his B.A. at the College, is pro ceeding to the London School of Economics, where lie will undertake a Commonwealth Research Scholar ship. We doubt whether the B Grade hockey team will ever be the same again without Ken's colourful and vigorous personality but, to coin a phrase, we know that Canberra's loss will be London's gain. We wish him every success at his studies in London and hope that not too many years will pass before we sight him around the old haunts once again.
HOSTEL FOR STUDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 16 September 1949
HOSTEL FOR STUDENTS Our recent plea in these pages for students in terested in shifting to a hostel, portion of which would be set aside for College students only, has lauded on barren ground. We received two or three replies only, so have now decided that it would be a sheer waste of time to pursue the matter further. It is obvious, in spite of the moans we hear from time to time to the contrary, that the majority of students are satisfied with their present accommo dation, or else are too lazy or spineless to attempt to do anything about it.
N.U.A.U.S. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949
N.U.A.U.S. In Newsletter No. 8, the Executive of the National Union published a memorandum which it had address ed to. all constituent Councils, in which concern was expressed about the lack of support from constituents in various aspects- of the National Union's work. The memorandum - stated that for some time past the N.U.A.U.S. Executive had felt that the students in Australian Universities had not been receiving from the National Union the full results of the work of the Executive in general, and the Secretariat in particu lar. The Executive felt that the organisation and the activities of the N.U. had not received from the members of the constituent Councils the close scrutiny and active interest and support which are essential to full success in its work. '?'The Executive desires to stress that N.U.A.U.S. is a federation of all its constituent organisations. These organisations, by joining the National Union, undertake to support it and to assist in the carrying out of majorit...
EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949
EDITORIAL Recentty the 29th District of Rotary International held their annual conference, the theme of which was Rotary 's Responsibility to Youth.' Your Editor was able to be present at one session, and listened to a paper on the very theme of the conference itself. This revealed a careful, sincere and earnest approach — all too earnest perhaps— the impression left being that a puritan-like upbringing is very necessary, right and proper for all youth, which, incidentally, for the purpose of the Conference, included all young people from 16-24. It is not our purpose, however, to criticise here the subject as it was dealt with, but merely to make one general point. It is more usually the case than not for older people to look on their responsibility to young people rather as parents regarding growing children. They are told what must be done and what must not be done, that this is moral and that immoral, this person is bad, that one good — in short, their lives are moulded and fashi...
THE SULKY FIRE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949
THE SULKY FIRE Canberra audiences have again suffered from an ill-eliosen play. Ladies in Retirement now seems to belong to a silver age following the earlier splendours of Malfi. The caption, 'Repertoire of the Comedie Frahcaise, ' ' seems to have blinded some to the com plete lack of dramatic merit in the translation of this latest play. The subject of neurosis has attracted two kinds of playwright. Those like Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strind bergy have treated it as a philosophical and) moral problem. The spectator participates in the tragedy of Hamlet, Brand, ' 'The Father,' by some transfer ence of his own personality. He cannot shield him self from the conclusion that human relationships necessarily generate force which will drive men to madness and death. Others have shown characters as the victims of particular sets of circumstances having no wide inter pretation, and which are properly the subject matter of psycho-analysis. This prostituted form of drama titillates its audience, ...
THE COMMON ROOM Re-Furnishing [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949
THE COMMON ROOM Re-Furnishing You will remember that in a recent issue, we announced that the Common Room was to be furnish ed on a somewhat lavish scale. The Council of the College has now approved in principle the plan sub mitted by the Registrar, and sketches and specifica tions of the furnishings have been sent to two or three firms to see whether the furnishings can be obtained. A copy of the plan has been posted up on the Notice Board, outside the Common Room. It should be pointed out however that whilst this gives a gen eral idea of what it is hoped the Common Room will look like when completed, the colour scheme and some of the details will be different. The person behind this scheme is the Registrar, whose untiring work has made this ideal a practical reality. Before the plan was finally submitted to the Council for approval, the S.R.C. was given an oppor tunity to put forward its own suggestions, and although agreeing in general with the proposed lay out, it did offer some...
CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949
CRICKET NOTES The 1949-50 cricket season will start on Saturday, October 8. Games are due to start at 1.40 p.m., on each Saturday and, as the Association is considering taking action against clubs whose teams are held responsible for late starting, we make a special appeal to all players to be at the grounds by 1.30 p.m. Those students who played with us last year mil recall that the Club 's material was in a bad way, par ticularly the Sub-District kit. There was, in fact, only one bat in the Club fit for match play. The present Committee is determined that a similar state of affairs will not prevail this season, and has bud geted for a big outlay on new bats and other material. In order to raise the necessary money, an application has been made to Sports Council for a grant of £36. In addition, the Annual General Meeting decided to impose a subscription of 10/- per player for the season, together with 2/- per match ball fees. The fee of 2/- will apply irrespective of whether the ma...
