A PROTESTANT MANIFESTO [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
A PROTESTANT MANIFESTO Sir, I wish to make protestations about the inconvenience the behaviour of a certain Narell anite is causing. This person, only too well known to we sufferers, has a novel method of studying. LJ'~ in ]r ? L:„ A ? 1- ? I _U ? - rrc nib uc&n anu cimii out into the middle of the cor ridor. Then he sings popular music at the top of his voice and stamps time on the floor with his clumsy boots. While doing this he pro fesses to be studying. 1 sincerely doubt the sanity of this fresher. Moreover, I doubt the possibility of his being able to study under such circumstances. If he can really study in this way, then he must be insane; and his place is not in the cor ridors of a noble establishment like Narellan, even less in a centre of learning, such as a University, but in a padded cell at Kenmore (or some simi lar establishment for the treat ment of intellectual oddities). Whether or not he can study he is making it very difficult for all his neighbours to stu...
WITH BOTH BARRELS EDITOR OF PROMETHEUS REPLIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
WITH BOTH BARRELS EDITOR OF PROMETHEUS REPLIES Sir, In your columns you ask 'Why Woroni' and answer 'Well, why not?' May I (ell you why not? There is an idea that a ven line suuii as uiis lb iicucs&aiy to lay the groundwork for future success. But unless it is backed by genuine interest, it is doomed to be a perennial problem to S.R.C. after S.R.C. faced with the problem first of producing the thing and then with getting rid of it. The piles- now obstructing the S.R.C. office testify to the present apathy. When the College has de veloped sufficiently to attract a number of people of talent and enthusiasm, then is the time to venture into the costly field of the University newspaper. Until such a time arrives, it is a waste of time and money to produce a mediocre news paper for which there is no very great demand. Recognise all but two of your words? A. J. MILLER.
COMMENT The Editor Speaks [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
COMMENT The. Editor Speaks When a bus;ness firm or a newspaper makes some departure from tradition, they usually sing long and loud about what a wonder ful thing they are doing. So when 'Woroni' de no rto ' r-r\ncirlf*ra hi v from pai ko ? whuiwviuui; a. *. w * » . tradition by getting herself printed, one might have ex pected a- song nearly as melodious as Tim Ellis singing a Revue lyric. Instead of which, as you may remember, it wasn't men tioned. There were three reasons. (a) Owing to a delay in print ing, news banked up, and . . we ended up with half as . ? much print again as we . could possibly use. (b) We haven't got a good ' singing voice. (c) We forgot. ?We intend to keep Woroni's personal aches and pains out of the way this year, but breaking silence just for now: The cost is £24 per issue, plus the cost of blocks, minus ad vertising revenue. There will be ten issues during the year. And anyone who asks me per sonally when the next issue is coming out will run consider abl...

MEN'S HOCKEY TEAM TOO FLUID [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
VliEirS 'HOCKEY TEAM TOO FLUID Sir, But for the fact that I am a fair-minded person, I would write to Woroni to complain / about the poor display piat oil by the Col lege hockey team. This undisciplined and in ebriate mob is rapidly lower ing the gjood name enjoyed by this university for so long. They jake the field in a bed raggled/ fashion, smelling strongly of liquorice water or some ' other potent brew (maker's name omitted because of advertising restrictions). They are barely able to run, h?.ve only nuisance value as ctgards preventing their oppon ents from scoring, and curse in vulgar. un-Canbcrran language. I do not wish to mention names, but a certain fullback (emphasise full) moves in a weaving fashion up and down the field which would be excel lent if he had the ball. At ic-asi lie has the decency to hide his- alcoholic face under ?i bright blue cap. Certain others, such as the coarse right inside, have no aim other than to maim op ponents by hitting them in viiu! areas wi...
ANTEDELUVIAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
ANTEDELUVIAN February 11th! Torrential downpours flooded the College on the above date, submerging driveways and verandahs in a foot of water. 'It was like driving a sub marine,' said the writer of this report, of his effort to float his car near enough to . the verand ah to get out . without being soaked. Political science lecturer, Solomon Encel's car became stuck and had to be helped out by Revue producer Doug Sturkey, who had just arrived to work on pre-rehearsal Revue preparations. Commented Sturkey: 'A pro ducer must be prepared for anything.' Many scripts prepared for the rehearsal were ruined by rain, which drove horizontally into the S.R.C. office through a slightly opened window. Members of the committee worked until midnight to re pair the damage, but were un able to produce the complete script for the rehearsal. 'Woroni' material was soak ed, but as material for student newspapers is generally consid ered wet in any case, the only harm done was the frustration of the edi...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
Sir, I regret that I am un able to call your comments on Prometheus a' review. Rather it is a criticism and hardly a fair one at that. TTmvfivor. vnn hnvn hnnn grossly unfair, indeed vicious, in pointing out to out-of-town readers that Mr. Day ('Politics and the People') is no student of the College. That might be true of today but, you should have found that at the time contributions for this issue of Prometheus were being sought, Mr. Day was not only a stu dent at the College, but a darned good one at that. In Public Administration he not only secured second-class honours and third place in the University of Melbourne class list, but he was also awarded the Institute of Public Ad„ ministration's prize to the student submitting the best essay in Public Administration or Public Finance. Perhaps this qualifies him to submit cm article for Prometheus. A. J. MILLER.

People and Things [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 13 May 1959
People and Things Of late, the main scene of activity aronnd the College has been the Revue. Cast and helpers had a rather gay time with assorted parties, the first of which was to farewell producer Doug Sturkey, who left to become third secretary to the Australian High Commissioner in Wellington. At the first party, presentations were made to the producers, Doug Sturkey and Mans King, to pianist Marcella Nash, wardrobe mistress Mareo Cox and stage-manager John Brooks. A general celebration fol lowed in the Common Room; most people, however, left at a reasonable hour for parties elsewhere. Since quite a few 'outsiders'* were present, the Revue com mittee decided to limit the second party to those immedi ately connected with the Revue. There was a riotous farewell for Doug as he left the air port; presentations of 'flowers' almost caused him to desert the plane at the last moment. We hear that he has arrived safely, and that certain people have sent his name to the University testify...

WOMEN'S HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
WOMEN'S HOCKEY Showing considerable improvement on last year's performances, the women's hockey team won a match during the holidays. This was despite embarrass ing illness and absences, which forced the team to forfeit one match to W.R.A.N.S. On 23rd May, with only a team of eight girls, University went down 6-0 to Canberra High 1. To make amends, a more numerous team of nine girls justified the attendance of an encouragingly large band of supporters with a decisive 5-0 win over Grammar I the fol lowing week. University was mostly o.n the attack, though indecisive work in the circle and excellent de fence by the Grammar goalie at first impeded scoring. Then a movement across to the right wing and a burst of speed from Rachel Webb brought the first goal of the season. After half-time, University girls were irresistible. Irmgard Brunswick scored spectacularly, ending up on the ground in a familiar position, and centre forward, Deslee Sallows followed with another. The same pair score...
Dispute Settled [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
Dispute Settled A threatened dispute over the srcience fac ulty elections was satisfactorily settled at the Annual General Meeting of the Students' Association. On the closing date for nominations , Returning Off icer Rafe de Crespigny ascertained that there were no nominations in science; and arranged for two female members of the science fac ulty to nominate. To complicate the issue, one fresher science student asked to second a nomination realised what was afoot and signed a false name. Until this time, science freshers had been under the impression that they could not nominate. Three more nominations wer3 hastily prepared, and put in the nominations box at about 10.30 p.m. on the last day. But shortly before this, Mr. de Crespigny had cleared the boxes, and declared the elec tion closed. He declared the two female students elected unopposed. The fresher science students protested, alleging that the poll ?hould not have been closed until midnight, and pointing out, also, that as ...

They Say It's Like a Pedestrian Crossing [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
They Say It9s Like » Pedestrian C^rossiny There has been a widespread reaction to a new creation fathered by ex-S.R.C. member Rafe de Crespigny. The object is the official tie of the Students' Association , adopted by the last S.R.C. at Mr. de Crespigny's urging. The design consists of al ternate diagonal blue and yellow bands, separated by thin black stripes. Initial reaction was critical, many freshers complaining that they had just escaped from High School and did not like the suggestive overtones of the tie. One student said the tie was like 'a bloody pedestrian cross ing' and another compared it to a 'striped carpet-snake in the mating season.' Miss Joan Morgan said: 'I haven't seen it, but the de scription's enough. I don't want to.' 'Too loud,' said Miss Mary Eccles. 'That horrible gold!' 'Good grief, what a mess,' said a startled male student, on being confronted with the design. New S.R.C. secretary, Bob de Viana, refused to comment. 'I think the S.R.C. should be unbiassed....
