ORIENTATION ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 27 March 1950
ORIENTATION ADDRESS. Full marks must go to the back room boys re sponsible for the Orientation Address delivered by Processor Crisp on 9th March last. The address, for the edification of those who found themselves other wise engaged on that Thursday afternoon, welcomed new students to, and old students back to, the College, outlined academic and other amenities available to students, stated ways and means by which students might derive greater benefits from their studies, from association with the College and from membership of the Students' Association. Although there was little that the old timers amongst us had not heard before, or learned the hard way, the address did help to fill a serious gap in College life. If seriously considered by all, it should prove of 110 small value and should enable new students to side-step many of the pitfalls ol; University work. The plug for greater interest and activity in the 11011-academic side of College life— Student Notes, Students Represen...
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 27 March 1950
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING The Annual General Meeting of the Students' As sociation, and none of you should need to be reminded will be held in the College on Monday, 3rd April, at 8 p.m. Lectures will be cancelled as from that hour so you've no excuse at all to be absent. In fact if you have the slightest sense of pride in your College, you would roll up in force to make sure that what de cisions are made reflect the wishes of the majority of students. The Annual General Meeting is indoubtedly the biggest student event' of the year, and in many ways the most important. No student should miss the op portunity to listen to and take part in discussions on a variety of subjects, during which at times contro versy rages thick and fast especially when constitu tional amendments are suggested. You wouldn't have thought it really would you, when all you hear from this paper relates to student apathy .but it is true. If you do not believe us then come and hear for yourselves. And speaking of co...
THE PLAY'S THE THING. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 27 March 1950
THE PLAY'S THE THING. ''The Play's the Thing,' as a programme note kindly pointed out, has been modified since its first showing since 'the account of today 's world has shifted from glitter to grimness.' In the circumstances then it was perhaps surpris ing that the cast of 'The Play's The Thing' dis played obvious enjoyment as they cavorted in an at mosphere of pre-war revelry. On the other hand it is not so surprising that the essence ot Adrian .borzeii s production 'shifted from glitter to grimness.' Partly responsible were the limitations of the 2 CA Theatrette Stage, the smallness of which empha sised the flamboyance of the movements of some of the players while picking out the stodginess of the movements of others in the cast. Yet on the whole the production moved smoothly towards the climax in the sheer fun of the third act. Adrian Borzell is to be complimented for his highlighting of Molnar's satire of the 'timeless sub jects' of love and theatre. Adrian Borzell, John Gar ra...
HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 27 March 1950
HOCKEY The Annual General meeting of the Hockey Club was held on Sth March, 1950. Office bearers elected were: President , D. Dunn ; Vice-Presidents, B. Hol gate and R. Osborn ; Secretary, G. Sellars ; Organis ing Secretary, R. Osborn ; Treasurer, G. Brooks and Executive Committee Member, J. Pead. The President 's report for 1949 indicated that the club had had quite a successful season.

C Grade also reached the grand finals and was successful in securing the grade premiership for the second year in succession. The club desires to field three teams this sea son if possible, so anyone who can wield a hockey stick or is willing to learn how to wield one is urged to contact either D. Dunn at F0411 or G. Sellars at F0321 Ex 365. The first practice match will be held at lieid Park at 10 a.m. Sunday, 26th March, so roll up one and all to do your stuff.
CRICKET. SECOND GRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 27 March 1950
CRICKET. SECOND GRADE. In the match against competition leaders, Ainslie, University won the toss for the first time this season and batted first, but only a stand of some 50 runs between Freiberg (23) and Gratton (49) gave the score of 145 any respectability. At .stumps Ainslie were one for ten. Prospects of a very interesting match was washed out by the rain on the second Sat urday . The resulting draw has spoilt whatever chance University had of finishing at the head of the list because RMC Staff and Ainslie, the two leaders, are to play each other in the last match. It would seem most probable that jeither Ainslie or Staff will win this match and so retain the lead in the competi tion. SUB-DISTRICT RESULTS. Prior to the commencement of the final round the Sub-District team ? was fourth with 32 points. The first two matches of the final round have resulted in a loss on the first innings and a draw. The results of matches since the beginning of December have been as follows : Vers...
Outdoor Sports Results of matches, Saturday, 22nd April, 1950. [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
Outdoor Sports Results of matches, Saturday, 22nd April, 1950. A Grade : As a result of the pre season games against Sydney Uni versity and Northern Suburbs, Uni versity started the season in reas onably good condition, and this played 110 mean part in our 4-nil win over Barton. TViq Pii»c+ Vifll-f-' nf +1tp o-nmp was JL lXVy XJLXKJt 11U1X Vi. I/JLXV gu/juuv ' * of good standard for the opening match of the season. The backs of both sides were evenly matched but the University forwards proved the deciding factor by scoring three goals to nil in this term. In the' second half the standard of play of both teams deteriorated, the only bright spot being a goal by University. Scorers for University : Newman (2),- Gratton, Jones.. Best players: Tr-aves, Newman, Osborn. B grade No. 2 : University 2 and Queanbeyan, the two 1949 Grand Finalists, renewed acquaintances at Reid Park, in the first match of 1950. It was evident that both teams lacked match practice, and for the first 15 minutes p...
SEE NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
SEE NEW ZEALAND For the information of all students and for the possible interest of our few full-time fortunates, we repro duce the following article written by George Plttendrigh, N.U.A.U.S. Travel jGxchange Officer. If the article evinces any interest further information may be obtained from the Hon. Secretary (Bill L.) Morrison, c/o Gnugahlin, 'phone F405. The Travel and Exchange De partment' of N.U.A.U.S., though still in its infancy, has proved its value to those students who have been assisted by it. .The main work to date has been to organise the exchange of students with New ZealaCnd and in 1949 some seventy odd students were assisted in this way. Apart; from the New Zealand scheme, . it is the aim of the Depart merit' of Travel and Exchange to ar range interstate travel in the long vacation. The idea is that through the National organisation vacation, jobs can be found in other States, so that the visiting student is usually able to make his holiday pay for it self. The wo...
ON THE MAT [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
ON THE MAT The Editor, dear sir, % A rather acute aesthetic sensibility .. ~ has impelled me to direct the atten tion of students to the state' of the new carpet in the students' ? common' room. . ' W My complaint is neither that the carpet has not been swept since it was laid, nor that it is the wrong col our — though both of ? these are true. Such a light colour will show every ' spot of dust, every greasy mark and every suggestion of cigarette ash. These sins are forgivable in Canberra,, where art is synonomous with an in comprehensible government form. But no student could forgive a car . pet with one strip running the wrong way' It is the second strip from the east wall, and it must be an offence to the eyes of students and staff alike. I have no time for student politics, I am not an honours student, I don't attend annual general meetings, but — Oh, that carpet! Yours faithfully, MARY PLAYER. Turner,^ 23/4/1950.

THE SOUND AND THE FURY CHRISTIAN SOLDIER [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
THE SOUND AND THE FURY . . . CHRISTIAN SOLDIER / The Editor, dear sir, As a student who firmly 'believes in the principles of the Christian re ligion, I wish to support, through the medium of your paper, the progres sive legislation now before the House of Representatives to outlaw the Com munist Party and restore the Chris tian virtues of respect for the indivi dual and humility before God. All true Christians know that the greatest obstacle to the realization of the ideal Christian State in the world today is the creed of Communism — with its aetheism, its neglect of spiri tual values, its advocacy of violence and disorder, and its exaltation of bestiality. The rise of civilization in the world . has accompanied the risie of Chris tianity, and in the world today it is those countries based on Christianity that are the most progressive ; the most backward nations, on the other hand, are those based upon pagan worship and materialistic religion. Now that Communism is capturing the m...
CANBERRA ART CLUB EXHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
CANBERRA ART CLUB EXHIBITION ☆ On Monday the official opening of the Canberra Art Club's 1st Annual Exhibition took place at the College. The Honourable P. A. McBride, Minis ter for the Interior opened the exhi bition with unbridled optimism sug gesting that it was on the way to es tablishing Canberra as the artistic and cultural centre of the Common wealth! Whether or not we agree with Mr. McBride's comments, the exhibition is worthy of the patronage of all students of the College. Side by side the paintings of Murch and Meldrum were those of some of our less talented local artists. Water colours, drawings, model ships, pot tery, sculpture and photographs added to a mixed bag. Perhaps the most impressive can vas was Arthur Murch's 'Bonor Dun lop,' winner of the 1950 Archibald prize, although many onlookers were equally impressed by his ''Silver Morning.' -Max Meldrum was represented by his 'Self Portrait' and . the famous portrait of his mother which seems to be standing the test o...
STREETCAR LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
STREETCAR LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED On Thursday night, a small but in terested audience attended the 2CA Theatrette, for the Canberra Rep's reading of Tennessee Williams' 'Streetcar Named Desire'.

0, YE EDITORS [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
0, YE EDITORS The inter-state conference of the editors of student news papers to be held in Melbourne in the coming May vacation may be justly described as the final manifestation of a student bureaucracy which has been steadily developing over the past five years under the auspices of the National Union of Australian University Students. To many who, in the past, have devoted their time to fighting the machinations of the National Union, this step would be regarded as disastrous if the ludicrous aspects of the case did not immediately pre sent themselves. According to the report in 'Honi. .'S.oit for March 16th, 1950, the conference will be of great importance in the future improvements of the standards and scope of student journalism.' Examining this statement at its face value one immediate query is whether any conference could possibly achieve such an aim. 'We would agree wholeheartedly that the standard of 'student journal ism' (accepting that phrase for the sake of argument) ...
"ON LIBERTY" [Newspaper Article] — Student Notes/Canberra University College Students Association — 10 May 1950
'ON LIBERTY' I We have now recognised the necessity to the mental well being of mankind ( on which all their other well-being depends) of .freedom of opinion, and freedom of the expression of opinion, on four distinct grounds; which we shall now briefly recapitulate. - First, if any opinion is eom- ^ s ~ ~ 4-t ? 4. ? ? i-JCJICU LU OilCIiCC, UltXL opinion may, for aught we can cer tainly know, be true. To deny this is to assume our own in fallibility. Secondly, though the si lenced opinion be an error, it may, and very commonly does, contain portion of truth; and since the general or prevailing opinion on any subject is rarely or never the whole truth, it is only by the colli sion of adverse opinions that the remainder of the truth has a chance of being supplied. ? Thirdly, even if the received opinion be not only true, but the whole truth; unless it is suffered to be, and actually is, vigorously and earnestly con tested, it will, by most of those who receive it, be held'ln the ? man...
