Quog Says [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

Quoq Says The first issue of Woroni 1959 should have arrived on Tuesday, 16th March. The actual (ante-dated) issue came out on Wednes day, 15th April. At Melbourne and Sydney Universities, editors are given the sack if they fail to produce their respective journals on time (i.e. weekly). On that rec koning, Woroni's stalwart edi tor should be about ready to enter the sugar-bag industry. * « Still, the printed Woroni was very nice when it did come out. 4 * # Herald Froy was the con firmed bachelor who wrote 'How to Avoid Matrimony'.

Quadrant's Wings Are Right [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

Quadrant's Wings Are Right One approaches QUADRANT with considerable j suspicion. Its editor, Mr. James McCauley, is a prominent mem ber of the D.L.P., and it is published by the notorious so-called Australian Association for Cultural Freedom. It is very pleasant, therefore, to record that QUADRANT rises well above its origins, and is one of the best of the several Australian quarterlies which have started in the last few years. The content of the first fif teen pages was a little hard to assess, as eight of them were blanks in our review copy. The others contain a pleas ing assortment of wellinform ed and well-written articles, which leave the impression that at four shillings QUAD RANT is worth its price. QUADRANT has a strong right-wing bias, which must be allowed for. Thus articles on Hungary are frequent, and at tacks on Communism to be ex pected. These are generally well written, and usually true ac counts, but one looks in vain for the same sort of treatment of other non-Comm...

TOP HEAVY BUT WELL-BALANCED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

TOP HEAVY BUT WELL- BALANCED by Dougal McDonald Producer, 1958 Revue Although there was a slight delay in getting started on 'TOP HEAVY ' 011 Friday night, the 1959 Revue of the University of Canberra (sic.) ran cominendably sinoothJy. For those of us who had seen earlier revues, here and else where, this must have been an eye-opener and for those who had not seen previous revues, it must have sent them home prepared to come again. The programme consisted of well-balanced items, per haps a little poorly laid out, and all tastes were catered for. The sketches showed originality and were topical and fast moving — which is the very essence of Revue. The printed programme, which was starker than in pre vious years, did not give the names of the script-writens, but they did a good job in the main. The opening number was slow, which was unfortunate. Jack Nosworthy was really too staid for the part he was called to play, although he did better later as compere. The ladies of the College Ba...

TOP HEAVY IS IN THE MONEY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

TOP HE A 11 IS IN THE MONEY Inspired, perhaps, by the photo next to this column, whiGh was used on posters and the pro gramme, attendances at the 1959 Revue broke all records. The result was a profit of £120. The attendance on the first night. which was the smallest, excelled the best attendance last year. Figures for the four nights were 134, 273, 219 and 277. Total atten dance was 903 people, which excels even the attendances for the play last year, and eclipses previous Revues. Advertising, printing and other expenses cost a little over £140, while total receipts were £253/12/-. This does not include £4/6/- from sales at the door of the Col lege magazine, Prome theus. Some £40 of the profit was blown on two par ties for the Revue cast; the rest will go into S.R.C. funds. Last year a loss was made on the Revue. About £50 of the ex penses went into perman- ! ent assets, such as cur tains and lighting, which can be used next vear. After she appeared on a Revue poster, a man asked fo...

D'YE KENNA CUP? Saturday, 11th April [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

D'YE KENNA CUP ? Saturday, 11th April The Hockey season lias really got under way, but the form shown does not warrant particular optimism as regards this year's premierships. For the boys it was the Kenna Cup in which, although they hope to enter three teams for the competition, University could only field one side. Even Angry Young Man found himself on the side lines for one match. Although without his assis tance, the eleven yellow-shirted students played as ragged indi vidualists, who usually man aged to give their passes to their opponents. Admittedly, the first match (against Barton — lost 1-0) oc curred at the unheard-of hour of nine in the morning, and Goulburn Workers' Club, who thrashed them 5-0, won the cup last year. Admittedly, star player Mus tafa was out with a sore leg, and, admittedly, most players were sadly out of condition. But this does not excuse the miserable performances. University were lucky to beat an even worse side, Wagga R.A.A.F. II, 3-0. In this match ...

RUGBY TEAM WITHOUT ALF PREECE FOR SIX MATCHES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

RUGBY TEAM WITHOUT ALF PREECE FOR SIX MATCHES University captain and centre Alf Preece is expected to be out of the Rugby team for six weeks, following a leg injury sustained during the side's humiliating 36-0 defeat by R.M.C. Staff, University played with fourteen men after Preece was carried off, during the first half. Lionel Woodward took his place in the centre, and breakaway Chris Jay moved to the wing. The loss of Preece was the major disaster of an injur y - r i d d e n match. Hooker David Funnel was off for a while, and full back Piper spent most of the first half on the side line with concussion. Brett Odgers took his place at fullback. Shocking tackling by the University centres was one of the causes of the defeat. Inside centre Tony May missed tackle after tackle, ana in the second half Staff scored almost at will. For the first twenty minutes University held Staff, until in juries took their toll, and were only down 8-0 at half-time. PENALISED FOR THE DOUBLE MOVEMENT Bre...

Angry Young Man [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

Angry Young Man In this issue I would like very much to have castig ated Gordon McCarthy on personal grounds. However, since I was not permitted to to do so, no fur ther mention of that person will be made in this column for the rest of the year. 4 'Is ^ The Canberra Hockey Assoc iation is to be commended for their courageous and dogged adherence to the principle they adopted last season of ap pointing only anti-University umpires to games participated in by College teams. We all remember the divid ends this principle paid, when at the end of last season Uni. 'A' reserve grade team were{ presented with their first wooden spoon. For this reason, 1 feel bound to sympathise with the bom bastic concern expressed by members at an Association meeting, following the first round of the season, when by some miscalculation neutral umpiring enabled a rejuven ated Uni. 'A' reserve side to hold last year's premiers to a 4-2 victory. (In the final round of last season, Barton recorded a 12-0 vict...

C.U.C. RAGS ARE TOO RAGGED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959

C.U.C. RAGS ARE TOO RAGGED Sir, I wish to complain about the lack of imagination shown by the students of this University. This year there have been no rvrartirnl inlroc u/nrthv nf o university. I feel that the students of Can berra are not following the ex cellent example of other univ ersities in this country in carrying out pranks which will be an eye-opener to the general public. We are a new university and it is necessary that we make a tradition for ourselves. We must not let our traditions be negative in this manner. I ifns particularly irked thai April Fools Day was allowed by the students to pass into oblivion. This will not do. Do we want Sydney, Bris bane, Melbourne and Hobart Universities to think that the students of Canberra are de void of imagination? There have been some rags here in the past; now we want more and better ones. What would be the student reaction to this suggestion: That a Rags Committee be set up; that all suggestions be given to them; that they be re...
