THOMAS WOLFE Little Known Genius [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
THOMAS WOLFE Little Known Genius It has become fashionable lately to read and discuss American literature, and names like Steinbeck, Hemingway, and to a lesser extent Dos Passos and Caldwell are on everyone's lips. It is somewhat astonishing that one of the few really great Ameri can novelists, perhaps the only one who possesses that indefinable quality of genius, should remain comparatively unknown and little read. Born on October 3, 1900, at the small town of Asheville, in North Carolina, Thomas Wolfe was des tined to portray the contemporary American scene, with an under standing and insight which have been granted to only a very few in the course of literary history. His premature death at the age of 37 left a tremendous .gap in American writing. Wolfe, though widely-travelled and able to de scribe Europe with the subtlety of one who truly understands her, was essentially an American writer more so than any of the protagon ists of modern American fiction. He was a product of the...

The Sound and the Fury.. DUMPTY HUMPED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
The Sound and the Fury . . DUMPTY HUMPED Sirs.— The importance of stan dards in criticism constrains me to notice Mr. P. H. 's 'dumping' of the review of All the King's Men which appeared over m^ name. That the review Avas not faultless, I acknowledge — though .as my rough draft was thoroughly re written by others (with my per j v mission, but not revision), I dis | claim much of the responsibility. J! Mr. P.H., however, did not es tablish a single critical point. He !. began with two blunders of prin j ciple : he maintained that an | author's 'intended theme' is rele j ; vant to the theme which actually appears in his production ; and ! that, in a work about political values, there is no place for rele v vant political information. (His mention of Macbeth in support of j the latter contention is too impu ji dent to merit correction.) He l| ended by offending good taste in J imputing to me 'a desire to see |J . and judge the political institution j;J of bossism': I have not communi ...
DEGREE SHOP [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
DEGREE SHOP Sirs. — In answer to your edi torial query in the last edition of 'Woroni' ('Where do college students go ? after evening lec tures?') it is 'apparent that the editors are not part-time students. Although a full time student can afford the time to hold an hour's discussion over a cup of coffee, the part-time student has to make the best of his limited time for study. He is not interested in attending discussions, but rather to finish his next essay or write up the evening's lecture notes. Student hostels are a great asset in the right place, but in Canberra where over 90 per cent, of the students are part-time, the interest in discussion periods over a cup of coffee, etc., would be seriously lagging. A part-time student 's study time is valuable, and unless he achieves the maximum output from it, theikhe runs the risk of failing, in his course. Yours faithfully, G.E.M.
SPANISH LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 19 July 1950
SPANISH LETTER [A 'Woroni' reader has kindly &nbsp; made available the following letter &nbsp; from a Spanish correspondent, which &nbsp; may be of some interest to readers. &nbsp; Its authenticity is vouched for by the &nbsp; editors.] &nbsp; Dear X.— In Spain we have a &nbsp; character very different than the English one. We live as 500 years &nbsp; before Christ. A few senores have much money, and the others are their slaves. The workers or slaves work 12 hours daily, because with 9 hours they cannot live, and they eat black bread. In Spain, the workers live very bad, but the employees of the Go vernment live very well. They do not work and they live as princes. They eat white bread and do not pay for it, and the main Estraper listas (black-marketeers) are the police, Guardias Civiles and mem bers of the Spanish Government— they rob everybody and are the owners of everything. We live in a Dictatorship, and I think is...

Powell Replies [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
Poivell Replies Mr. McCredie '*s vitriolic attack on my article deserves some com ment, if only to warn gullible read ers of the dangers of accepting the judgements of the would-be logician, who applies his carefully formulated standards, involving Rules 1 to 5, to a field, whose richness derives from its ability to surmount the rules and machina tions of sterile minds. I would suggest that Mr. McCredie's glibly phrased but vague and almost meaningless ' criteria ' of genius could be replaced, with equal merit, by any of twenty lists of 'es- sential' qualities. Mr. McCredies remark that the quest for a release from frustration and despair, which I identify with the quest for 'peace and content ment of the soul ' ' is the occupation solely of the saint, is ridiculous. Perhaps lie has never read or heard of Rilke Nietzsche or Proust to mention only a few, but surely he would agree, that modern art is not wholly negative, and that it is largely concerned with'* finding a solution, no m...
DEVELOPMENT OF COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
DEVELOPMENT OF COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITIES On 24th July, at the College three of the visiting University representatives addressed a well attended public meeting on 'Univ- ersity Development in the British Commonwealth.' The first speaker, the ViceChan cellor of Dacca. University, Pakist tan (Dr. S. M. Houssain), outlined the problems confronting the univ ersities of Pakistan. The problem of staff was gradually being solved, - , but the language problem still loomed large in University develop ment. Sir Raymond Priestley, V ice Chancellor of Birmingham Univer sity, discussed the development of universities in the British colonies. The authorities were guided by three main principles — to keep col leges small, to maintain high stan dards and to have residential facilities. The United Kingdom conducted examinations and ap pointed inspectors of these institu i ons but otherwise they were auton omies. Finances come partly from the Home Government and partly from the colony itself. Reports...
MORE IMPUDENCE From a certain fairytate. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
MORE IMPUDENCE From a certain fairytale. ''1 don't know what you mean by glory,' Alice said. Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. 'Of course you don't till I tell you — I mean there is a nice knock down argument for you.' ' ' When I use a word, ' ' Ilumpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful ton, 'it means just what I choose it to mean— neither more nor less. ' ' ' The question is, ' ' said Alice, ' whether you. can make words mean different things. ' ' The question is, ' said Iiumpty, 'which is to be master— that's all.' With best wishes to all who battle from behind a noiii de plume. PIERRE HUTTON.

HOSTELS HIT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
HOSTELS HIT The Clacton Pest House sketch followed. Lindsay Gardner, as the Bait maid, showed what could be done with a small part. Jill Crich ton and Nancy Gleeson-White made the best use of a flat script. Tim Ellis as the diplomat was ef fective, but seemed uncertain of his lines. Lorelee Garstens , singing ' ' Boarding House Blues, ' ' supplied the only touch of glamour in the show. She sang with clear diction, but looked 1 ' sweet sixteen ' ' rather than the husky siren of the small hours of the morning. All characters were drawn to gether for the final hostel room scene. J ohn McCredie as the drunken limerick reader was amus ing, but the highlight of the scene was the Rep. rehearsal of 'A Motor Bus Named Narrabundah'. It was a clever skit handled particu larly well by Gerry Nutter (Hank) and Nancy Gleeson-White (Kate), but it was lost on an audience apparently unfamiliar with Ten nessee Williams. The finale, sung by all was rendered with gusto and genuine enjoyment. The chorus ...
THE THEATRE IN CANBERRA — AN INFORMAL HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
THE THEATRE IN CANBERRA - AN INFORMAL HISTORY Possibly the first theatrical performance in Canberra was the dedication and opening of Parliament in 1927. On the 9th of May of that year the settings, the pageantry and a distinguished cast were here, but the small audience was a big disappointment. In the bleak ancl dreary years that f olowed the newly transplated residents took to culture to relieve existence. A literary society put on performances' of plays. Some of Canberra 's present clay giants were active in the drama then. Talk to them and you will hear heroic stories of big plays and musicals performed— they made new sets of scenery for each show, incontinently discarding the old — evidently recreational activity was necessary at all cost. The survivors of early Canberra drama also tell you of the huge profits they made from their shows. They often charged 7/6 (and prior to the pound's loss of value, too) and packed the Albert Hall, rush ing over to the Hotel Canberra for extr...
