REVIEW OF THE HOCKEY SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 30 September 1949

REVIEW OF THE HOCKEY SEASON Although 1949 was a fairly successful year for the University Hockey Club, our prospects over the next few years will be dim unless we can attract more young players. The average age of the 'A' team was well over 27 years, while there were only two players under 21 in the Club. Almost the only new recruits to the club over the last few years have been External Affairs cadets and graduates from other universities. The new junior competition started by the Association this year will certainly aid the growth, of the game in the A.C.T., but unless we can persuade lads leaving school that it is both a privilege and an honour to represent the College in sport while tlicy are students, it can also mean the gradual eclipse of the University Club. On the support of a well-attended and enthusiastic general meeting, the committee entered three teams in the Association competition. Despite strong argu ment's the Association would not agree to our 'C' team, 1948 premi...

COMMONWEALTH LITERARY FUND LECTURE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

COMMONWEALTH LITERARY FUND LECTURE The annual Commonwealth Literary Fund Lec ture was delivered by Dr. F. M. Todd, assistant lec turer in English on Thursday, September 29. The I subject was 'Henry Lawson.' I Dr. Todd first called attention to the unsatisfactory i nature of most previous criticism of Lawson which r has been too often exclusively pre-occupied with | those aspects of Lawson 's work which are most | directly related to its artistic merit. Lawson the I democrat, Lawson the Australian, has received more I attention than Lawson the artist and the inevitable ( consequence has been an implication- that as an J artist Lawson does not merit critical attention. The | lecturer's aim was ;to correct that misapprehension. I The poor quality of Lawson 's popular verse has deterred many readers and it was pointed out that Lawson as a poet seldom rises above the level of many other popular versifiers and bush balladists of his time. But Lawson the prose writer is an artist of an alt...

AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL FILM BOARD (This article appeared in "Education News," Vol. 2., No. 4, August, 1949.) [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL FILM BOARD ( This article appeared in 'Education News' Vol. 2., No. 4, August , 1949.) In common with most countries, Australia, during the recent war, found the film a powerful means of informing public opinion. It was realised that it could be of similar value in peace, so in September, 1944, the Director-General of ^Information and the Director- General of Post- War Reconstruction con vened a conference representative of all interests concerned m the production or documentary and edu cational films in Australia. As a result of the recommendations from this con ference, the Commonwealth set up the Australian National Film Board to undertake the production and distribution of films for post-war training, child and adult education, and national publicity. The inaugural meeting of the Board was held in June, 1945, and although considerable changes in membership have since occurred, the Board's func tions remain unaltered. At meetings of the Board, policy is decide...

DR. TODD ON COLLEGE REVUE [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

DR. TODD ON COLLEGE REVUE I would like to give students some information about an important College function planned for next year. It is proposed that during Commence ment Week, .1950, the College should stage its first Revue. . Now, I think the College could effectively manage a production of this kind provided the student body — and this must be largely a student show- — supports the plan with more enthusiasm. I have in mind a general satire on people and institutions in Canberra, and the essential artificiality of the set-up in the .Capital- Territory. ??does lend itself easily to satirical treatment. But, such a production requires an army of helpers — the stage must be kept full, and the technical difficulties of such a feat can only be coped with by a horde of people behind the scenes— scene- builders, shifters and painters, musicians, make-up enthusiasts and so on. ?n I do not think we can do this without drawing on helpers from outside the College : for that reason it will ...

CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

CRICKET NOTES The senior College team travelled to Hall to meet last year's Sub-District Premiers who have been pro- j moted to B Grade. Hall won the toss and sent Uni- 1 versity in to bat. Scoring was very slow, due in part to the heavy ground, but mainly because of the accu rate bowling of Moore and Jones of Hall. 'With five down for 49, Rowan Osborne who, by the way, was elected Captain at a meeting of players before the match (the. Vice- Captain is Bill Cottinghani) was down to his last nail when Currie took charge of the b o wling in his inimitable ! style ; gave the scoring rate the transfusion. it badly needed; lifted the shades of gluom and the score to respectability. His 37 was the best performance for the College, and in a sixth wicket partnership with Stewart ( 22 ) he carried the score to 106 before being stumped. Included in the 37 were the only four boundaries in a total score of 125. Gratton and Cruse with 14 apiece were the only other batsmen to overcome first-round...

EXAMINATION DON'TS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

EXAMINATION DON'TS DON'T leave the swot too late! Heed the sad experience of a lass who recently applied for a posi tion with an international organisation. She wrote of her scholastic achievements as follows: 'I have gained my Intermediate Certificate and attained the Leaving standard. I passed four subjects in the *t' ? /n ??z'* i ? .? i ft m i ? n i i Jjeavmg uertiricate examination out railed, in iiingnsii. The reason I failed in English is, I think, because I began studying late in the year.' DON'T take drugs! A Dutch Professor, as re ported recently in the Canberra Times, said that students were becoming addicted to dangerous drugs and 'many' were going into exams so over-dosed that they did not know the day of the week. (We assume the day of the week has some relevance in exams). Canberra students are fairly sensible (we hope), but the use of benzedrine has been known. Let this be a warning. Lay off the dope!

INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 14 October 1949

INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION As was abundantly , clear during the recent drive for funds for W.S.R, the assistance rendered needy students bv their more fortunate fellow-students in other lands is a shining example of: international fel lowship and co-operation. You may have forgotten that you gave a bob or two to this worthy cause, you may remember that you didn't give a penny (and we hope your conscience will smite you), and so we thought that the following extracts from a recent news release issued by the Australian Committee to W.S.R. would keep before your1 eyes the fact that this work continues unabated and is warmty appre ciated. From a Letter from W.S.R. Field Delegates in Greece 4 'Once again we are going to let our Secretary, Irini G-agaoudaki, speak for us. We have just finish ed helping 44 students go on with their studies here by paying their registration fees or their canteen fees or their hostel rent.

FASHION AND FAMILIES (The views expressed are not necessarily those of the Editors.) [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 28 October 1949

FASHION AND FAMILIES {The vieivs expressed are not necessarily those of the Editors.) If you look at the climbing figures of Australia's population over the last few years, and look at the grand totals only, you can be easily deluded that here is a natural healthy increase. An increase, yes, but look at the birthrate figures over the past 80 years; see the gradual fall from 42 per 1000 per annum to 18 per 1000 per annum ; see the average family dwindle from five children to two. An increase, yes, but not a healthy increase. Left to this natural increase alone the average Australian becomes older (as be is now doing), older people predominate, younger people decrease in proportion, until finally we go out backwards. Oh, yes, of course, there is immigration. Mr. Calwell said a quarter million a year ; five million in twenty years if the quota is realised and maintained. Immigration from where? From, northern and western Europe, from low birth rate countries who h ave population proble...

STUDENTS' REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL End of Term "do" [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 28 October 1949

STUDENTS1 REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL End of Term 'do' Members of the S.li.C, felt that they could 'nt let the end of the year pass by without doing something to celebrate the end of the exams. However, pre vious attempts to organise student evenings have met with only partial success and whilst the idea of an end of the year 'do' commended itself, it was generally considered that the organisers could Jnt be asked to do too much. This disposed of the sugges tion to hold a treasure-hunt, whilst it was felt that the weather might be too warm for dancing. In the end. it was agreed to hold another picture night, especially as the film 'HELLZAPOPPIN' ' is available. This will be shown, together with a newsreel and a short, at the College on Wednesday, December 7, at 7.30 p.m. The usual warm invitation is extended to all students and their friends and to members of the staff. There is an added extraction! A grand supper will be laid on. So be in it. The Future of the 'Notes' This rag in printe...

EDITORIAL COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 28 October 1949

EDITORIAL COMMENT You will recall that in the 'Canberra Times' of October 20, editorial space was devoted to discussing the Manuka swimming pool and whilst we have no wish to enter into any controversy over the inade quacy of health measures taken, we do feel that, if swimming pools are considered hygenic — a well known Canberra specialist has serious doubts about this— then perhaps now is the time to build another one. And what better place could there be than the university site, as part of the university 's recreational facilities ? lnis suggestion need not be rejected simply be cause it can be said that at present the number of university students is small. The College is growing and a National University exists as well, at least in theory. Moreover, the new pool could be placed at the disposal of other educational organisations in Canberra which we feel sure would jump at the op portunity. We recommend that the College Council seriously consider this proposal and discuss the ma...

CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 28 October 1949

CRICKET NOTES Rain on the second day of the first match, prevent ed play. This was unfortunate as far as cricket was concerned, but for the second grade team rather pro vidential. Their match with Hall, although perhaps a. moral victory (on the first innings) for the country players, was officially rated as a draw. The scores were — University 125, Hall 2 wickets for 57. The rain came too late to save the Sub-District team who lost on the first innings to Queanbevan Rovers. Despite the petrol shortage and the usual Satur day drizzle Osborn's team, late as usual, drove out to Duntroon to inspect the state of the wicket that the Cadets proposed to use for the second match. It was found to be in reasonable shape and the embryo Staff Officers keen to get started. Osborne maintained his average by calling heads instead of tails and once again we were sent in to bat. Without any preamble the Cadets produced their secret weapon, one Launder by name, who in his first four overs had the scor...
