WORONI CRITICISED 2 Several features of 'Woroni' were criticised at j the final meeting ot the S.R.C. on Thursday, 8th s May, at the end of first term. t The chief criticism was the lack of solid items s and the high proportion of 'gufj.' z Members argued that not 1 enough coverage was given £ to more serious matters. 2 such as the S.R.C. 2 Rafe de Crespigny criti ? cised the prominence given 5 to football on the back £ page. Mr. de Crespigny 2 plays for the hockey firsts. 6 Ron Fraser thought that ? there was far too much | sport, while stale news items Z were also criticised. * The S.R.C. decided to 2 recommend that steps be | taken to secure serious arti s clcs on controversial or top ical subjects from the stud- z ents, and also to let them - know that they could con- t tribute to 'Woroni.' 2 There was a criticism of $ the large space devoted to X the coverage of the 1959 2 Revue, TOP HEAVY, and * the mention of actual names s in frivolous items.

Quog Says [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

Quoq Says Hockey players have been asking what they must do to rate the main headline on the sports page. Rumour is that they were told they would get them when the hockey Firsts won a match, which means that football, as one hockey enthusiast commented bitterly, should stay at the top for the rest of the year. ?1* «1- .i. It could have been better put. 'Farrago,' the Melbourne University paper, ran a photo of 'Mr. Stephen Charles ad dressing a somewhat disinter ested student body at the last General Meeting.'

Drama Society Will Now Be Legitimized [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

Drama Society Will Now Be Legitimized A General Meeting of the Canberra University Dramatic Society unanimously adopted with only minor amendments a new constitution designed to 'legitimize' a body 'born out of wedlock.' The aims of the society were stated to be to put on plays and play readings , to give students an opportunity to ' express an in terest in drama , both as theatre and literature , and learn its tech niques and. crafts through practical ventures The constitution also pledged participation in the Revue, the National Eisteddfod and the Intcr-Varsitv Drama Festival, social activities, and the estab lishment of a drama school in future years. When questioned whether the meeting, consisting as it did of unfinartcial members, could legally adopt the draft constit ution, President Ron Fraser said that the meeting was 'per- fectly entitled to act uncon stitutionally constitutionally.' Mr. G. Davies objected to the procedure for calling Special General Meetings, arg uing that...

C.U.C. TO BE INCLUDED AT ROYAL MEAL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

C.U.C. TO BE INCLUDED AT ROYAL MEAL At least six students of the Canberra University College will be invited to a 'democratic buffet lunch' to meet Princess Alexandra when she visits Canberra in August. About J 80 examples of Canberra youth between the ages of 18 and 25 will be invited to the luncheon. The formula for selection has not yet been finalised , hut about one in twenty will receive invitations. Officials believe there are about 3,500 young people in this age group in the capital city. Total enrolment at the C.U.C. is well over 600, but many of these are married part-timers who are over the age limit. There are nearly 150 full time students, who would be eligible, except for those who are only seventeen. There is also a large body of young part-timers, mostly with jobs in the. Public Ser vice, whose exact size is un known. Some students who miss out could be included as members of outside organisations. Both sexes will be equally represented, but invitations will be issued...

NUPTIAL CENTRE AT UNIVERSITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

NUPTIAL CENTRE AT UNIVERSITIES Two Japanese Universities in the Kansai District, Kwansei Gakuin University and Dodisha University have a matrimonial agency on the campus. When, in 1957, Kwansei-Gakuin alumni association announced the project to set up a matri monial centre, it created a sen sation. The matrimonial centre of Dodisha University Alumni Association was formed this year with a view to prevent a considerable number of women students from leaving the uni versity before finishing the full course of studies. It seems they give up college because they are afraid that, after a four \ | year course at the university, ? they will be 23 to 24 years old [ and that it will be very difficult | for them to take time to find a f husband. j:

SPRING-IN-FALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

SPRING-BN-FALL I ask you from my den of thieves What keeps you sane 'midst falling leaves? Among the horde no like is found, In those ribbed dead that silter to the ground. The ages-laden ground.

Readers' Letters [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

Readers' Letters Sir, I feel Mr. Miller ('Woroni,' 59/B.) is being unduly pessi mistic regarding 'Woroni.' He is right that there must be issue-conscious students before this iournal can reach a satis factory standard, but this will come. At the moment it is doing a reasonable job in keeping stud ents up to date in University affairs, and imposes a sense of unity as well as individual im portance. What is needed is material on current contentious matter as well as some creative writ ing. I have faith that this will be forthcoming, and I know that you, sir, are waiting its nascence. The time when you had to write this paper virtually single-handed is already ebb ing away, and will be replaced by a consciousness of duty on the part of those literate stud ents who have something to say. — R. G. FRASER. Sir, A grave tendency towards subtle snobbery is becoming apparent. Certain plutocrats wander into lectures and practical classes with their trousers os tentatiously folded up, indicat i...

LEGALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

LEGALITIES It is now some lime since the Law Society has secured the attention of 'Woroni' readers, leading the ignorant to suppose that it has been interred along xvith fhe abortive and malformed Arts Society. This is 'decidedly not so. One may say quite truthfully that we have not needed to do battle with anybody for some time. The rest of the College has either been functioning fairly competently, as with the S.R.C., or has degenerated from an idiotic St. Vitus Dance to a self-induced rigor mortis. As the president of this So ciety has stated, 'We aren't aware that we've got anything to beat.' * * * Far from being inactive last year, we achieved a great deal, .such as a highly successful law ball, an uproarious Mock Trial, a marked improvement in Library Facilities for Law Students and the founding of a study group. Much of our success was due to the energy and ability of our President, Lou Coutts. No noise was needed to un derline these achievements, but I am making a medium-pit...

Quadrant Misunderstood [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

Quadrant Misunderstood 'QUADRANT' is a magazine which has been misunder stood and misjudged , particularly in reviews appearing in this journal in previous years. Not until the last issue oj 'Woroni' has it been given something approaching its due a perhaps because its origin and aims have not been fully appreciated. I he Australian Associa alion for Cultural Freedom is composed not of ' right- wingers, but of liberals in the best sense of the word. Editor James McCauley, though his rightist sympathies are well-known, has done a consistently fine job in imple menting the principle pro pounded in the first number of 'QUADRANT': 'To publish work of interest and merit on any topic without regard to the affiliation or repute of the au thor. the sole requirement be ing that the material be worth reading.' His magazine is neither right or left wing, but rather neutral and moderate, yet intellectually stimulating. It is 'rightist' only in that it refuses to par take of the inebriating cup ...

UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL TEAM BOOSTS PLACINGON LADDER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL TEAM BOOSTS PLACINGON LADDER After a run of victories, the University Rugby Union team has moved into third position on the Reserve Grade ladder, out of eleven teams. Ahead of them are Royals, Ainslie and R.M.C. III. R.M.C. Staff are also well placed on the ladder, behind University. After two tough matches against highly rated teams, the University side has been gaining in combina tion and confidence. The forward side has developed well, and the backline, at last getting a reasonable share of the ball, is looking much better. University could just field teams during the holidays. The father of University's captain, Gwilym Davies, saved the day driving down players from the Corrimal-Wollongong area. Gwilym is now captain of the team, elected to replace the injured Alf Preece. Following are accounts of matches played during the holi days in chronological order. University v. Norths After an attractive game at Manuka Oval' University ran out the winners by 20-11. N...

LEFTIST TREASON ALARMS ADVOCATES OF APARTHEID [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959

LEFTIST TREASON ALARMS ADVOCATES OF APARTHEID By B. H. PIETERS \ Director for International ? Affairs, A.S.B., South Africa | li has come to our notice through a statement by our Minister of Education that a students' association called 'NUSAS' (National Union of South African Students) , has written letters to foreign universities with the aim of inducing them to send protests to our Government on University Apartheid , i.e., separate University education for the different races in the community. We, the A.S.B., on behalf of our more than 16,000 members who represent the vast major ity of South African students, view this deed of 'NUSAS'' with gravest concern, and can not consider it otherwise than an act of high treason towards South Africa. The United Na tions have proclaimed that no State should interfere with the internal affairs of another. This, however, is constantly being done by associations and institutions outside our boun daries. We consider it to be a most contemptible...
