BIG SISTER IS WATCHING YOU [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1958
[?] A most annoying feature- of the whole affair was that the ScR.C* was not even officially informed of the Registrar's decis ion. This appears to indioate a lack of consideration for those ? persons elected to represent the student ?? 'foody (shut up Lav/ Stud ents — this. .is -.a solidarity matter) ? It also shows a lack of con- : sideration for the students .?themselves^ and would be 'considered a- ? grave discourtesy to any o.jbher organisationo We also dislike the implication tha.t the S.R.C, is not .fit to be entrusted with the '.conduqt of what is a student affair. As such persons as Joan Thomson,. .J.osie Richards, Pat Geach, J:acques '? ?? Grenot and Alf McCarthy' (to take a few names at random) are mem bers of the S.R.O., we feel that this slur is unjustified. 9 . ? ? ? ' It is thought -'that, the Registrar s action may have been due to a complaint about the ''-Revue party the previous Saturday ? As it happens ? this oarty was quieter than usual (particularly compared wit...
BLACK BALLED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1958
[?] In the first Woroni this yeary 'Freshers v/ere told that they were no longer at school. Woroni apologises for thus misleading them. Last Friday night the Registrar made it quite plain that we are still very much irresponsible ?adolescents: by breaking up the Commencement Ball 'at' .2 o'clock and having the Hall locked up at half past* 3?evj/ peo'ole would want the Commencement Ball to drag on to say half past four in the morning, and of course it would in fact have been stopped long before , this- by the S.R.C.$ especially as they... would have to pay the extra., cost of : the band, but the way the Ball was going*. an extra hour wq:uld- have been appreciated by most of .; those present ? The. sudden placing of the National- Anthem as the party was warming'up came as an irritating end/, to an other wise excellent :eveningo 'We .doubt whether those members of the staff who wore- there liked the early closure any more than we did.

As a result of the May, 1957:)E^itors.? conference held in-' (in case you. are dull) May, the Australian University Press is to publish, three times a year, a supplement .which will collect news from all Australian Universi ties. Vith 'a circulation of over' 21,000, the supplement can sway public opinion to some. ex- tent, and provide expression of common interests among students. Finance has been, made available by N.U.A.U.S. and, in add ition, constituent bodies are asked for a 4d a head contribution to cover initial expenses. It is hoped that advertising revenue will supplement the supplement. Unless your copy of w'oroni has been tampered with, you should find the first supplement attac hed to this issue.
