FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 July 1956

FOOTBALL Saturday last St. Sinians (University) walloped St» Custards (Forestry )., .. for their 'finest- victory of the season. Su perior weight 9 ' teamwork, and let it 'be admitted more unscrupulous tactics led the 'battling bombshells'5 to a walkover I3~6win* The visitors found devastating form early in the ma tens rigorous training arid high morale told on the disorganised Custar . dians, hampered by the loss of two- first-class players (who were noticed , obviously playing for the other side) and by massive inju ries , which led to rai almost complete change of players by half time. This was undoubtedly, caused by. the. .policy of Mno weapons barred'- 'adopted (for- obvious personal reasons1* and inculcated from the start of training early this season by. the /Varsity trainers « However -this may be, the . 'Peaches''- - as they are sarcas tically termed - swiftly settled down to the systematic slaughter which was such a marked feature of the match. De.spite'' a certain weaknes...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 July 1956

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Sir-, ' ? ? The S.R.C.. is most concerned about the behaviour 'of students in the Common Room ..« this applies most particularly to -full time students ,? especially the 'freshers11. ' Students have shown little or no regard for the pro perty of the College 'or of the Students T Association* Not only has there been a complete disregard for the thoughts and feelings of their fellow-students, but there have also been, cases of theft, wilful destruction of property, and conduct not far remo ved from juvenile delinquincy - and this by persons who are to lead- the community in years to comet The S.R.C. is seriously considering removing certain privileges from a number of students and has gone, so far as to bring into effect disciplinary regulations -which will permit the S.R.C. to ban particular students from the Common Room and to withdraw all privileges from them. There will, of course,, be a right of appeal to the College Council* It can bo seen that a state...

THE'iBVvULT, DEAR CARROLL. . . . . . . ; ' Part of your article last WOROFI gave a fair appraisal of the. full-timers1 noods and grievances. But the general impres sion it left, on me. at least, v/as that -the full-time students vijore an unfortunate but necessary evil who must be tolerated as' long as they behave themselves but are still a rather unimportant minority group in the University. I feel I echo a view held by most Universities v/hcrr I hold that the full-timers-, even in the rather unusual organisation of the College-, are the most impor . tant part of the. University- I go further/ The full-timers and the Staff ARE. the University: the part-timers are in effect only here oji suf franc e. ?

KILLING THE SACRED COW [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

KILLING THE SACRED COW Some hard facts, apparently unknown to Gov ernments, but which are forcibly brought home to the man in the street as he over-spends his weekly pay packet. ' , Australians seem to . have an 1 in-buil't liking for protection, not realising that even if it' does not take the form of quantitative restriction of imports it is one of those controls we are all . so anxio.us to remove. While our high costs- and prices are said to be ruining the, country by the effects of internal inflation' and by pricing us out of overseas markets, th'us making it impos sible for us to pay our way in overseas trade, Government , ac tion seems to be confined to ? raising the level of .protection by imposing more and more im ; port restrictions. Yet in a time of rising prices . , one of the easiest ways to lower the general price level would be to remove the costs that, tar iffs and other protection add to our economy. Why then do we maintain this price-lifting sys tem? The die-hards '...

AND EDWARDS FOR HOPE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

- AND EDWARDS FOR HOPE 'Now the labourer's task is o'er, Now the battle-day is past; Now upon the farther shore Lands the voyager at last.' . Ellerton;s hymn was written for the burial of the dead, but the lines I have quoted here might be applied equally well to the renaissance of the literary magazine 'Prometheus' after its five-year medieval torpitude. And now that life has been restored, it may- be of advantage to stop scrambling metaphors in. favour of something else. Why, it may be aske'd, has 'Prometheus' been .revived? Why have a magazine, at all? A partial answer has been given by Professor Hope in another context: Very few people realise' the importance of a good literary magazine in the, intellectual life of a country. I think it can best be put by saying that it does for civiliza tion what roads do for it at a materfal level. It is an essential means of communication and fo r the interchange, of creative thinking.' Without good journals, as /every scientist, as every bus...

LEBENSRAUM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 August 1956

LEBENSRAUM All who' have attended our present College will have obser ved or experienced the near complete : suffocation of student life which results from the' f act- that part-time students form the. overwhelming majority ? of Col lege -membership. We all know I that the reason for the predom inance of ''part-time students is the presence in_ a young and small city of the Common wealth's central ^administration. Because the city is young and small, it has bred few of its own University - freshmen ; ; and - be cause it is the centre of? adminis tration, most of those attending^ the present , College are Public Servants first and students as an. afterthought. ? ? Many such students are mar ried and have families ; , many have already ' experienced a full university life elsewhere: in both- cases, the desire to partici pate in the College's stunted student life easily wears thin. - The real misfortune of Canberra University College is always re marked to be the absence of that most v...

A Unjversity should not seek jus tification for its existence and activities by pointing out that through its training more tech nicians will be provided, or the economy will be run more ef ficiently, or 'the-, health of the people will be . cared for better.

Hope for Prometheus 1 1 PROMETHEUS REDIVIVUS The present number of 'Prometheus,' as the - Editor points out, is the first to appear in five years. The magazine was first printed in. 1933 and continued to appear annually until the difficulties of- war-time publication put a temporary stop' to it. It did not resume publicatio'n till 1949 and ceased again after ? 1950. ?' Mr. Edwards, in. the great tradition of editors of .university magazines, speaks bitterly of his ?constituency: 'Conceived in a workman's hostel, and nurtured by, staff contributions, this 'Pro- metheus' is the students' protest .against the laziness of their fel low-travellers and the negligence of the powers-that-be.' It may be some comfort to him that,, apart from the place of .concep tion, the magazines of the Uni versities , of Sydney and Mel bourne wo'uld provide long lines of ghostly editors to echo his words. ?As a matter of fact this issue bears out the biological view . that, provided the parents are of ?goo...

Ten years, ago, when A.N.U. was established, our autonomy must have been almost unthinkable and amalgamation our only reasonable future. Now we are fully capable of standing on our own feet.
