A CAMERA IN MELBOURNE THE FIRST TIME A COLLEGE GROUP HAS GONE INTERSTATE WAS THE C.U.D.S. PARTICIPATION IN THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES DRAMA FESTIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1958
R CIWRR IN MELBOURNE THE FIRST TIMS A COLLEGE GROUP HAS GONE INTERSTATE WAS THE C.U.D.S. PARTICIPATION IN THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES DRAMA FESTIVAL. Our Dramatic Society staged 'I am a Camera' in the Union Theatre at Melbourne University on August 2-lst. By and large, the trip was a success. The AGE was critical - Anne Oldham was 'pleasant' , and Chris Masterman 'likeable', but the production failed to show the 'ominous history making llote' of the drama. However, we had the biggest audience of any play except the Melbourne entry 'Theresa' , which was a world premiere of an Aus tralian play. The people we saw after the performance were unanimous in their praise. Free from missed cues and other lapses (in contrast to a woeful dress rehearsal) we put on our best performance so far to the best audience we have had. * * * * * Concerning the other plays i Adelaide's LADIES IN RETIREMENT was a most enjoyable play, and a credit to cast and producer . ? THERESA, the Melbourne entry, we did n...
SCIENCE LOOMS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 September 1958
[?] The Canberra University College will, -barrliig unforeseen contin gencies, offer courses in science in 1959* Applications have closed already for Professors of Botany, Physics,' Chemistry,' Zoology and ?Geology. A large number have been received, and are now being con sidered. There will be a limit of 24 students per . subject, with preference for full-timers. The five subjects provide a sound basic course in science. If the quality of the new appointees is as good as that of the present staff, the new science school should soon become important. Work should start shortly on a permanent science building for the College, which it is hoped will be completed by 1961 . Until then, the Australian national University has made the ol-2 John Curtin laboratories over to us .The University of Melbourne is buying equipment for them on behalf of the College.

IT'S IN THE REGULATIONS Were you thinking of writing direct to a Melbourne faculty about your course, in order to by-pass the interminable red- . tape of course-approval here'? DON'T. I UUl lCllWl will itlUHiVU (unopened) to the C.U.C. and you will receive a stiffly worded reprimand from the Registrar. Regulations state that all enquiries must go to Melbourne via the C.U.C. ad ministration. Few students know of this. Asked for the position of the Regulation in the College Cal endar, assistant-Registrar Theo. Keith took many minutes to find it. He thought he had it under Instructions to Students. His next guess wis Regulations. Drawing a blank, he proceeded to Discipline — Observance of. Still no go. It was finally uncovered' on P.61 — under General Inform ation.

FORWARD GIRLS ARE RAGGED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
FORWAKDGIRLS ARE RAGGED The Gala opening day of the A.C.T. Women's Hoc key Association was held last Saturday, April 18th at Acton Ground. A march past of the twenty one teams and novelty events were held, in which Uni. was unplaced, and then a short , grading match was played! against the Warratahs III, which resulted in a draw — nil all. Uni. had the opportunities to score in this match, but a ragged forward line and the inability to use these opport unities to the best advantage resulted in failure to score. It is hoped that with organ ised practices, which com mence next Sunday afternoon at Reid Park, the team will be able to combine better and that its potential will be real ised before the start of the competition matches on May 2nd.
NARELLAN NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
NARELLAN NEWS After much comings and goings of business-like men, and many talks and discussions on the extensions of our cramped dining-room, work has be gun. The buildings are on hand. Where there were nicely curtained windows there are now yawning holes in the wall. By day we have a nice yet of scenic windows — 'he scene? Well, a few verandah posts, some autumn tre s, a glimpse of sky and — need I say it? — some more of Narellan. By night these boles make the dining room look like a bombed and blacked out building during the blitz. Well, I guess that Narellan ites are learning tolerance, if nothing else. These alterations to the dining rooms means that for a time we will have our meals while exposed to the nonetoo tender mercies of the elements. Just now it is raining. If the rain changes direction we will have to dine in raincoats. Or perhaps we will be subjected to the chill blasts of the wintry winds. People who come in late for meals don't have to order chips. Today I saw a f...

Pleasant Surprise In Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
Pleasant Surprise In Hockey While the football team Mas going down to ignominious defeat against R.M.C. Staff, the A grade hockey team drew 2-all with Presbyterians. Irrespective ol the result, the great feature of the match was two tremendous hursts ol superb hockey at the end of each half. Throughout the match the play -vas open, last and lair, hut on these occasions it rose to really great heights. With Mustapha out again, Grattan went to centre forward and Rafe de Crespigny on to the left wing. University had obviously done some planning after their first game, an,d the early at- tacks wer^,. -pressed much more firmly. ' The fifc'cfte swung from end-to: end urft/iHa n- u r)e.^g^\ei^ shot from the edge of the circle by Gray, of Presbyterians, came waist-high, giving goal keeper Deane no chance at all. University's luck at the other end was out, as flurried play wasted chances. As half-time approached the attack became smoother, but could not score through the safe Presbyterian ?d...
SHE BIT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
SHE BIT The 'Canberra Times' critic admitted the good standard of the Revue, but headlined it as lacking in 'bite.' Her remarks, quoted out of context in a second week advertisement, at tracted a lot of bookings. The builders were hammering away happily, 'knocking chunks out of-the wall — while chips of wood and plaster showered on the hungry diners! Vacuum cleaners going all morning make it a bit hard for Narellanites to study in their rooms. Now the noise the builders are making will soon prevent us working in tbs lounge. While the weather lasts our only alternative is the Col lege library — only hope the library is big enough. Perhaps the complaints will not always be on our side. If Narellanites decide to throw their uneatable food through the scenic windows instead of at the waitresses, then maybe the builders will have some thing to say.
