Quog Says [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
Quoq ^ oays Our religious societies have been active lately. On the no tice board an S.C.M. cocktail ! parly was announced, dress un necessary, agenda preferably feminine. And a Newman So ciety notice advertised the top ic of the monthly meeting as: Evil — AH Welcome. * * * Many students saw the plan for Canberra exhibited in the War Memorial by the National Planning and Development Commission. I wonder how many noticed that it was in a section referred to as 'Ord- nance and Technical Relics.' * * * A certain individual, perturb ed at the number of atheists round the Canberra University College, intends to found a Soul Club.

FIRSTS WIN FIRST EVER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
FIRSTS WIN FIRST EVER At last the big occasion has arrived! Victory has come to the hands of the 'A' hockey team, and in the words of goalie George Sarossey, 'We'll do it again!' Presbyterians, who previ ously had held University to an exciting two-all draw, were unable to withstand the vicious attack by Uni. and suffered a 2-1 defeat. University's forwards had the play mostly their own way, and were on the attack for most of the game. In the first half Mustapha scored for University, then a goal was scored bv the Pres byterians to make the score one all at half-time. During the second half play was fast and rather ragged, but after a short corner Murray Bromfield scored the winning goal. This success, although not very satisfying, is well deserv ed as the team have been im proving anda-ACO^£apable of better re^mFxth0n fiaVe-^been shown L'' !'u]y Let's !-kom that this is -fiph the omY^d^asibtiAfpr, tjie head-, ' lines! \ £ LIKE On June 8 team was defeated by Barton, 3-2.

NO SEX AT NARELLAN? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
NO SEX AT NARELLAN? It is Friday night at Na rellan and some half-dozen freshers are sitting in a smoky little dive littered with bottles. Out of the tobacco smog comes the voice of Doris Day singing 'Love me or leave me' followed by . . . 'Who's gonna love me to-night.' Suddenly all six go mad, beating their heads against the wall or doubling up in fren zied agony. ® Drink? 9 Drugs? 9 Death? No, far worse. Frustration. It is an acknowledged fact that these poor tormented males are reaching the peak of their sex drive. Yet they rarely ever catch a glimpse of a girl worth looking at in this man's world. In fact, it would be no ex aggeration to say that Narellan is equalled only by a gent's toilet for the scarcity of women. There is only one solution and that is feminine. We want girls. We NEED eirls. Until we get them, the stan dard of work will continue to decline as frustrated freshers seek relief in drink, tobacco and long bicycle rides at night. Come on . . . i Surely some of the...
Angry Young Man [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
Angry Young Man As it is not usually the custom ol lli is paper to print dirty jokes, llie Editor inlorms me lliat any at tempt to reduce lo neces sarily insullicienlly com prehensive phraseology my views on llie Narellan House chel wi 11, as usual, he reduced lo the innocuous decorum demanded by the S.R.C. Owing 1o circumscription of space and style the views ex pressed here represent at best a faded blue-print of what can only be freely expressed ver bally. However, if any trace of the original uncouth style should escape the Editor's aesthetic eye, I would remind j readers that in moment of tow ering rage classical metres scl- 7 dom flow from the heart. I There are a number of basic I rules of courtesy from which, | in our dealings with other peo- I pie, none of us are entitled to feel ourselves exempt. I see no reason for the Narellan House manageress to consider herself an exception. I refer lo one of the con siderable number of incidents reported to me. On this occa sion the m...
IN DOLDRUMS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
IN DOLDRUMS The Girls' Hockey has been rather in the doldrums of late. Following two weeks without hockey, owing to a bye and the holiday week-end, Telopea High 1, the leaders in Division II, defeated Uni. 6-0. Uni. were short of players and did not have a solid de fence so that Telopea did not have much difficulty in scor ing. Uni.'s opportunities to [ score were limited, but the at tack was perhaps the best fea ture of the game.
SAME OLD STORY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
SAME OLD STORY During first term a table tennis tournament was started with 32 competitors. Six are still in the competition. This state of affairs is not unusual, but we hope to see some movement soon. These players have yet to play their second round: Tan suvan, Khor, Reece and Jay. Magi and Mustapha have al ready proceeded into the next round. Nevertheless, the space be fore the artistically written 'winner' looks like being va cant for some time.
NOBODY FORCED UNDER THE BED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
NOBODY FORCED UNDER THE BED A new togetherness record is being claimed by some of the C.U.C. students. However, rati fication is not being sought from Commonwealth Hostels Ltd. A notorious Narellan resi dent and some of his comrades in arms claim the record which had been previously held by a freshette. The basis of the claim is that 26 persons came together with out using the space under the bed — therefore the old record must surely fall.

GIRLS GETTING FAT.

SHE SERVES ECONOMIC FOOD [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
SHE SERVES ECONOMIC FOOD l.U :'j The manageress of Narellan House has said that the reason for the inexpensive food served is the low board paid j| by students. But the board at Gorman House, where the J i varied menu features chicken as meat, is no higher. A typical meal lacks filling. A salad consists of a bit of meat, a piece of limp lettuce, a slice each of tomato and cu cumber, a fragment of radish and some shredded carrot. .Even with the soup and en tree added, this is inadequate. The manageress claims that the salads lack meat because hot entrees are provided. These however, are rarely hot, as they stand around for some minutes before a meal. In addition, the entree is very small, instructions often issued to split portions which are slightly bigger than usual. Among the complaints are — ? Substitution of slime for soup, ? Excessive fondling of food. ? The adulteration of boiling water with milk. ? The adulteration of tepid water with custard. ? The serving of disguised cardb...

After referee John Archer had threatened to give the girls a forfeit, eight more of the team arrived The numbers were augment ed with Bruce McLaughlin and Doug Drummond from the spectators.

And Never The Twain [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
And Never The Twain In a recent edition of 'Wor- oni' you stated that 'Woroni' was the only student newspaper with an aboriginal name. May I, as Editor of the official Journal of the University of N.S.W. Students' Union, point out to you that the name of the above paper is 'THAR- UNKA' — an aboriginal name meaning message stick. Looking forward to receiving further editions of your paper. DERMOT NUNAN, Editor.
Beds Maid [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
Beds Maid Sir, I wish to submit a strong and vehement complaint con cerning certain aspects of the administration at Narellan House. On the morning of Monday, July 6, while in a state or ad vanced unconsciousness, result ing from a particularly tiring social affair a few hours pre viously, I was rudely awakened at the ungodly hour of 9.30 a.m. by an irate manageress, who addressed me in uncivilis ed tones; 'Get up you 'soak,' the maids can't wait all day to make your bed.' Naturally sir, I objected, as the 'social affair' previously mentioned did not end until 4.30 a.m. on the morning the said offence was perpetrated. —INEBRIATED.
