"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" Flops [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' Flops by George Moyseyenko Film-goers in Canberra recently saw Tennessee Williams' 'Cat oil a Hot Tin Roof.' The write-up accorded this work of art in the Press and elsewhere was twice as good as the drama itself. After watching it care fully, I disliked it for several reasons. The character of the young husband's father, a rich and portly southern landowner of 65 dying of cancer, is as vulgar as I have not seen for a long time. Constantly and cynically using four-letter words, he is a foul-mouthed and shock-proof exponent of sex. But early in the play, he is offended and outraged by a prompted Negro girl's bit of sex-play; later, he is suddenly hesitant to tell a dirty story, though there is no apparent change or previous qualms. The happy ending was obvi ously tacked on with a view to box-office. In a bogus sequence, the hus band who has spurned sex relationships with his wife is made to return to the marriage bed, and to a renewed loving relationship. Yet ...
Angry Young Man [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
Angry Young Man 1 he other day , in order to remedy a shortage of anger, I was privileged to inspect a cubicle at tha C.U.C. This example of bureaucratic expediency was approximately five and a half feet wide. It is, I believe, a converted ver andah. Even in its original cond ition it cannot have been a particularly unique or out standing specimen of architec ture. With the deposits of several generations of carpentry added, this dust-filled, draughty, un heated, exposed, chilly, crowd ed and depressing monstrosity is a fitting monument to the vision and concern for student welfare exercised by our bom bastic administration. Into this area is jammed the materials, equipment and of fice of the S.R.C., this illus trious rag, 'Woroni,' cartons of crockery, three cupboards, a table, typewriters* and masses of other junk. As a result, this constrictcd, badly designed, awkwardly shaped, thinly partitioned ver andah masquerading as an of fice bulges like a pregnant camel. As another result...
Hockey Seconds Win [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 24 June 1959
Hockey Seconds Win^ Great jubilation greeted a historic first ever victory by University hockey Seconds at Majura Oval on 9th May . They defeated Baptists by four goals to one. Although this particular team of Baptists has been recently promoted from 'B' Grade, this does not dim the fact that University are no longer the undisputed claimant to the wooden spoon. Despite many mistakes by the Seconds, centre for ward Frank Stacey and wing McCarthy, netted to give University a most in spiring two-nil lead at half-time. Baptists scored early in the second half. As University had no goalie, it was fortunate that this was the only occasion Bap tists looked like goaling. A reverse sticks shot brought McCarthy his second goal, and ?Bob Grey also scored to set up a commanding lead. Despite generally ragged play, and a mediocre opposi tion, credit is due to the Sec onds for an event which many had considered as impossible as the man in the moon. UNIVERSITY SECONDS, 4 (McCarthy 2, Stacey, Grey ...

Still Confident [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
Still Confident Jo demonstrate its confidence in the Dramatic Society, the S.R.C. h as decided to grant the society an advance of £10 more than it had sought. The society had requested a I substantial grant of £65 to en able it to function efficiently. New S.R.C. member, John Nosworthy, moved that in ord er to make amends for the shabby treatment of the society last year, and to demonstrate the S.R.C.'s belief in the effici ency and vision of the execu tive, the grant be £75. The S.R.C. unanimously en dorsed the motion. When a similar request was made last year, the S.R.C. at first refused to make a grant, but finally advanced £5, which the society declared was totally inadequate. . * * * Commenting on this year's reversal of policy, President Ron Fraser said the society would prove this confidence not to be unjustified, or alter natively. to be justified.

The Sad Truth [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
The Sad Truth Now that cafeteria service has been introduced, into Narellan guests are favoured ivith the discovery of the lonft-hidden secrets of the Narellan House menu. Menus at Narellan have always been rather unintelligible as they give no indication of their quality or ingredients. Guests feel that the label of poison has been omitted on many occasions. This is a sample of the un intelligibility of our menus: ANZAC DAY MENU SOUP: ANZAC POTAGE. ENTREE: JAPANESE AU MAYON NAISE. DINNER: ROAST VEAL & TURKISH SEASONING. ROAST BEEF & GALLIP OLI PUDDING. VEGETABLES: AUSSIE SPUDS. YPRES SPROUTS. GERMAN ERSATZ. SWEETS: NEW GUINEA PUDDING & BORNEO SAUCE. WALTZING mATILDA PUDDING. ROMMEL TUTTI FRUTTI. TEA, COFFEE. From the similarity of many puddings and soups, although the titles vary, guests have long been led to believe that the cook serves up the same dish at many meals under the disguise of a foreign-sounding name. So here exposed to public view for the first...
No Horse In Postal Ballot [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
No Horse In Postal Ballot (A.U.P.)— The S.R.C. of Syd ney University is at present finalising arrangements for a system of postal voting for the annual elections this year in an effort to eliminate many of the difficulties and illegalities experienced in past elections. Previously, it had been found that the use of a large number of polling booths had often re sulted in large-scale multiple voting, and this situation had only been rendered more com plicated and farcical by the nomination and election of Messrs. Chelonia and Conrad, who were found to.be animals (a tortoise and a horse, respect . ively).
UP THE POLE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
UP THE' POLE Once again the C.U.C. is o(T up the pole, or at least the Australian equivalent of it. Thredbo is the poor unfor tunate target this time. The date is the 8th of Aug ust and the approximate cost will be 35/- for the bus trio and 25/- for the hire of boots and skis.

Plans For Play End In Dismal Collapse [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
Plans For Play End In Dismal Collapse The Dramatic Society's plans to produce Pirandello's play 'Henry IV' for the Inter-Varsity drama festival 'had to be abandoned after the prospective producer decided that he could not cast the play with the material available. As an emergency measure the president of the Dramatic Society announced that they would now stage 'All My Sons,' by Arthur Miller. But after rehearsals had begun, it too flopped. After protracted negotiation, the society had been almost certain that they would secure the services of the noted pro ducer, Mr. Ralph Wilson. At a casting meeting on Sun day, June 21, it appeared that 'Henry IV' could be pro duced. However, Mr. Wilson did not appear on time for the next meeting at which the cast was to have been announced. After some delay the execu tive left to contact Mr. Wilson. One and a half hours after the scheduled starting time a seri ous Mr. Fraser returned with out Mr. Wilson. He informed the hushed gathering that on f...
SCALY WORK AT S.C.A.D. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
SCALY WORK AT S.C.A.D. J he annual hockey com petition which rejoices in I he name of 'SCAD,' was held again in Sydney over the Queen's Birthday week-end. Teams from Sydney, Canber ra and Armidale Universities, and from the R.M.C., Dun troon compete in hockey mat ches and other contests of a slightly less sporting nature.

Reports indicate that the ac tual carnival was much more organised this year and that all seemed to enjoy the trip. The question of whether or not the standard of hockey benefited or not is better left open.

RUGBY WINS CONTINUE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
RUGBY WINS CONTINUE The University football team was good enough to account for two more reserve grade teams without turning on the displays which will be needed against stronger sides such as Ainslie. University v. R.M.C. Whites Only solid forward play and a brilliant last minute try by winger Brett Odgers saved Uni versity from an ignominous draw with the destructive but unimaginative R.M.C. Whites. The University back combin ation failed to combine, owing to poor passes from the scrum base to five-eighth Mildren, who himself hung on flagrantly, forcing a shaky Gilmour to take a battering at inside cen tre. Mildren opened the scoring for University,, kicking through and bamboozling a dithering R.M.C. full-back. Piper scored another opportunist try for the side to lead 6-0 at half-time. White struck back to level the score, then University ral lied and began a quarter hour assault, led by Stevenson, whose crashing runs brought often-needed relief, and Har greaves. With full-time im...
