PASSPORTE TO PIMLICO [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950
PASSPORTE TO PIMLICO Those who prefer the natural humour of English comedies to the back-slapping, familiar routine of most of their Hollywood counter parts, flocked to the Civic Theatre to see 'Passport to Pimlico' .at the end of last week. The film begins with quiet charm, the characters carrying on their day by day jobs in. a post war London suburb. The acciden tal detonation of an unexploded bomb, and the subsequent discovery of an historical document, proving that a portion of the suburb at Pimlico is technically Burgundian territory, changes their whole way of life. As odious Government controls are thrown aside by the 1 c Burgundians ' ' complications arise. This is an . original theme with wonderful possibilities, but it is overworked. One suspects that half a do'zen Script writers all had a shot at it without realising that an idea. of this nature is difficult to sustain. Stanley Holloway makes an ex cellent return to the scre'en as the leading light of the 'Burgun- dians. ...
A NEW CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950
A NEW CLUB The College's reputation for intel lectual fertility has been enhanced by the latest incubation, the Political Science Club. It was conceived by * Professor L. F. Crisp, hatched by the Political Science students, and the brood (twenty chicks in varyin& shades of pink and blue) came out ? of their shells last Friday evening in the students' Common Room at the - College. The Club aims to hold re gular meetings to discuss current political problems, and membership is open to all College students, grad .uates and staff members. A committee was democratically elected, the sophisticated device of pre-selection being preferred to the crude method of ballot rigging. Pro fessor Crisp and Mr. Beddy became dual presidents, Mr. Hawkins found himself Chairman, Mr. Robinson turn ed out Secretary-Treasurer, and the meeting elected as Committee-men Miss Moir and Messrs. Cox, Low and Percival. The next meeting will be announc ed on the College notice Board and in 'Woroni.' After t...
FIRST REVIEW'S LABOUR PAINS Students, Producer Enthusiastic, But... [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 28 June 1950
FIRST REVIEW'S LABOUR PAINS Students, Producer Enthusiastic, But . ? . ^ Students showed that they are keen to give the C.U.C. a new lease of life when they turned up in unprecedented numbers to last week's review meeting. No less than thirty two attended the first meeting — 11 per cent of our entire student body — and the genera! hubbub of conversation was indicative of a hitherto unexpected enl* thusiasm. Even more enthusiastic than the students, volatile producer, Dr.. Murray Todd, is anxious to; start the show moving. Encouraging as this we feel that we must sound a note of warning. This is our first revue and we want it to be a success. ENTHUSIASM IS NOT ENOUGH. ? A revue must be fast moving with scintillating dialogue ; it needs sparkle and zip and above all it needs organisation and production. The theme of the review, expressed in the tentative title, 'Capital Folly, ' will be difficult to sustain for the entire running time, unless interrupted by other sketches, * The Red R...

A TEAM DEFEATS STRONG WARATAH TEAM Univercity A v. Waratah at Reid, 24th June [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
A TEAM DEFEATS STRONG WARATAH TEAM Brilliant Goal by Ka.ye Univercity A v. Waratah at Reid, 24th June As these two teams are equal on points for third position, University expected stiff opposition in this match. However, after an even opening, University gained the up per hand and finished much encore strongly to win 3 goals nil. The first score was the result of a brilliant piece of work by Kaye whose consistent play at right-half has been a feature of the team's strong half line. He flicked the ball wide across to the left wing fol lowing on well he picked up the pass back from the wing and, scored. This was the only score in the first half. First score in the second half * followed a fine drilling run by Traves » which drew two backs. When t tackled by a third he passed to Norman, in position at the head of 4 the circle who drove straight. The * last score came from Holgate who , played impressively in the second half. ' The strength of the University de fence is shown iby the f...
STUDENT FILM SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
STUDENT FILM SOCIETY In view of the almost complete inertia of the Canberra film-centre, it is becoming increasingly apperent that those to whom the film is a vital' form of art, and whom the com mercial cinema cannot hope to satisfy, must look to some more active body. .Surely it is from the University, presum ably the centre of a city's cultural activity, that such a socieey should spring. Perhaps it is being presumptuous to assume that the permanent Public Servant, who unfortunately con stitutes almost the entire student body, has an interest in any thins: outside his current salary and his struggle for seniority, but contact with many students who have not yet succumbered to the negative inertia of Canberra life, has assured us that such interest is present, and could be stimulated to positive action. The facilities for a Film Society in Canberra are ideal, and the National Film Library alone contains many fine examples of the art of the film. In addition many of the greatest co...
A's Defeat R.M.C. in even Game B No. 2 Wins; Weakened B No. 2 Loses UNIVERSITY I v. R.M.C. I At Griffith on Saturday, 1st July [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
A9s Defeat H.M.C. in even Game B No ? 2 Wins ; Weakened B No. 2 Loses UNIVERSITY I v. R.M.C. I At Griffith on Saturday, 1st July R.M.C. attacked early when the usually reliable left defence bastions seemed a little unsettled No score resulted however — in fact, Findlay, the goalie, had only one kick at the ball in -±he whole match. After about ten minutes play the defence settled down and only in the final minutes of the second half did R.M.C. look like scoring. Then Gore, their centre-tfroward, took the ball through from near the centre. His shot from an acute angle sailed into the net over Findlay' s head. University's score was opened by Garrett who flicked a good goal from an accurate pass from Hol gate on the right wing. Hol gate's speed carried the ball along his wing at a great rate; it is a pity that he doesn't set him self more often before he passes and also before he tries to goal from passes from the left side The second goal came from a penalty bully which Newman con- '...
THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES 'L'Ecole des Femmes,' one of the first of Moliere's great versecome dies, containing' some of his finest language, looses a great deal in translation into modern English, which is far removed from the lan guage of the age of Louis XIV. In the performance of the play by the Rep. the language, though perhaps suited to Moliere's complete farces, seemed to be lacking in the dignity and finesse that one associates with Moliere's 'High Comedy.' In spite of this obvious defect, the performance was commendable, and the arena production, though mag nifying the weakness and nervous ness of some of the cast, created an atmosphere of reality that might have been lacking in an ordinary production. It seemed obvious that the producer was striving to empha size the farcial aspect of the play, and in this he was following the lead of Louis Jouvet and other modern French producers, who have delib erately minimized the tendentious side of Moliere's drama, in an effort ' - * to re...
TABLE TENNIS Team Still Loosing [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
TABLE TENNIS Team Still Loosing Two more matches h^ve seen Public Service Board and East lake Hostel beat the University team by 8 rubbers to 2. Several of the matches went to three sets but generally the opposition has been too strong. Osborn won a single in each match and part nered Peters against the Board and Jones against Eastlake in successful doubles combinations. The University team continues to hope.

/' In the China Shop ... * The last Annual General Meet ing of students decided that the title 'junior Common Room' ? should be changed to 'Student * Common Room.' The S.R.C. made * the suggestion to the Registrar „ and here's his reply: — * 'In connection with the title - ' 'Junior Common Room' I have * already taken action to ascertain * the Council's views, and as a ' result, it' has been decided to * seek academic and student * opinion throughout the College * as to the name.

Both B. Teams Successful [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
Both B. Teams Successful B Grade No. 2. The first half of the game against Kingston was played at a fast pace. Half time scores were 2 all.

Best players: Craigie, Walsh, Home. B No. 3 University and E.M.C. found the ?ball difficult to handle owing to the heavy and uneven ground. By half time, however , University had es- * . tablished a 3-nil lead. The second half was even, both teams scoring 2 goals. Cooke-Russell did well as an impromtu goalie, and Rogers was impassaJble at full-back. Scorers : Dean (2), Hill, Jones, Hutton.
STAGE AND SCREEN INTRUDER IN THE DUST [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
STAGE AND SCREEN INTRUDER IN THE DUST ' Intruder in the Dust, ' ' although billed as a support to ' ' Side Street, ' ' is a refreshing and unex pected interruption of the spate of poor films that have followed 'Shoe Shine.' The theme and the message of the film are commonplace, and it is the treatment which lifts the production. Based on .'William Faulkner's novel of the same name, it deals with the arrest of a negro for the murder of a white man and the reactions of provincial society, first to his .assumed guilt, later to his possible innocence, andj finally . to liis freedom. The failure of the liberal thinking sheriff and lawyer to take any positive action to save - tlie negro is a significant detail, and it is the child, innocent of political and racial prejudices, who is responsible for arousing his elders. \ . The film has its flaws, notably the stereotyped and unconvincing Miss Habersham episode, the slightly-, melodramatic capture of the real murderer, and the moral ising c...

ROUND OF SYDNEY SHOWS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
ROUND OF SYDNEY SHOWS The new arrival in Canberra, fresh from' one of the larger cities with all the richness and diversity of their life, finds a completely different world awaiting him here. Many of the things which were his 'bread and butter' in Sydney or Mel bourne are almost completely non-existent in Canberra, and he j realises only too soon that one cannot live with geography alone. It is understandable that a small city, completely lacking in tradition, whose population is virtually unproductive and para sitic, should feel the absence of any cultural tradition, although the negative indifferent attitude of most public servants to any intellectual or cultural activity is somewhat disturbing. The writer was fortunate recent ly in escaping, though only for a few days, from the sluggish lethargy of Canberra life, to the more vital and more mature atmos phere of Sydney, where a spate of fine entertainment emphasised the enormous gap in the cultural stan dards of the two cities. U...
RECITAL BY NEW AUSTRALIANS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
RECITAL BY HEW AUSTRALIANS ☆ The - concert given by the New Australian's Geza Bachman and Zoltan Teszleri at the Albert Hall on Wednesday, July 5, was no place for the musical purist. Mr. Teszleri, at the piano, showed re grettable. evidence -of lack of prac tise, while Mr. Bachman, though technically more polished, showed himself lacking in sensitivity. The concert opened with Mr: Teszleri 's performance, of a Bach Organ Toccata, wh ich though not com pletely successful, was commend ably ambitious and rendered with a dash and vigour worthy of better things. The pianist was more at home in a Chopin Polonaise and his. single encore,- a Chopin W altz, was delightful. Mr. Bachman selected works which gave him an opportunity to display technical foreworks, par ticularly in the Wieniawski Polo naise. The fireworks were com petently performed and thorough ly entertaining, his encore entitled Tlie Cancery Song especially ap pealing to the audience. The high standard of musician ship displa...
REVUE OPENS WEDNESDAY Capital Capers Canters To Climax [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
REVUE OPENS WEDNESDAY Capital Capers Canters To Climax On Wednesday night the jinks will be decidedly high when at 8 p.m. in the Albert Hall the curtain will rise and the show of the year — the first revue in the history of the C.U.C. — will commence. The energies and enthusiasms of 15 per cent, of the entire student body have been directed towards this maiden effort, and on Wed' nesday the sum of the labours of dozens of script writers, song writers, actors, actresses, designers, and a host of back-stage Bohem ians, all under the tireless eye of Doctor Todd, will, to the accom paniment of the fanfares of a four piece orchestra, be poured onto the stage. More than 200 seats were taken before the plans officially opened and 'Woroni' reporters have told of frenzied scenes at the ticket agencies in Civic, Manuka and Kingston, where women fought with legs of ram and umbrellas to win places in the ever-growing queues. The attractions are many and varied. Several lechers have be wailed th...
