TABLES HOLLOW [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
TABLES HOLLOW The film, ' SEPARATE I ABLhS ' is probably a fair adaptation of the Rattigan play, since Ratti gan himself was one of the two script-writers. There is, of course, no guar antee of depth, and indeed the film is most uneven, oscillating between a clinical diagnosis of the weaknesses of character and the group relations of what seems an odd set of people in a distinctly shabby hotel in Bournmouth, and a tendency towards dramatic cliche and sentiment. I say 'seems,' because a large part of this play is an intense study of weaknesses, which at first dominate one's view of the character. The various climatic points reduce these characters to peo ple with ordinary needs and I with ordinary motivations. God's liberality with frail ties is seen to include all man kind, and one is left with the feeling of self-awareness and very little annoyance. The acting performances are largely excellent. The one major fault of the film as a film, is that it intro duces sentimentalism partly...
DID YOU SEE WHAT THAT FRESHERETTE? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
DID YOU SEE WHAT THAT FRESHERETTE? Recently three Narellan House inmates, each typi cal of a particular type oj student at the C.U.C., ivere asked to record their im pressions of a day at the College. They ran more or less like this ' MORNING Fresher, Female: Leap out of bed at sunrise. Psychology, French, Mathematics and Eco nomics honours to-day. Jolly good. Prepare a rather good essay on symmetrical bi-modal and multi-modal distributions, do a sparkling translation of 'Le Pere Goriot' and have some original thoughts on the economic position of Australia. Have six healthy sausages for breakfast, three boiled eggs and two cups of tea. Walk to College to keep in condition for the hockey. (Privately, the team spirit is disappointing — only eight girls turned up for a match last Saturday). Learn about intelligence tests in Psychology and find my I.Q. is 194. Terribly thrilled. Second Year, Male: Crawl out of bed at eight. Canberra's morning mist has a red tinge. Then hangover hits me....

BIRTH OF HALL HERALDED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
BIRTH OF HALL HERALDED Much interest was aroused recently when two architects' sketches were placed on the Common Room notice board. These were the first indication of the coming nativity of a hall of residence (which is expectd in 1961 ). The sketches gave a brief but encouraging preview of the type of bed-room study which the Canberra University stud ents of 1962 will be expected to occupy. Features of the new rooms include central heating, built-in cupboards and a parquetry (or possibly lino-tile) floor. Fur nishings are projected as fol lowing modern lines with a ver satile divan, a functional pin board wall and modern light fittings. The many needs of the ener getic student could never be met by even the most brilliant of architects. However, few are disregarded in these rooms. A sink is provided and also additional storage space which the student would probably de vote either to food or to drink. The student would probably find no difficulty in supplying his own bookcase (for ...
No Premium on Progress [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
No Premium on Progress A loud hollow laugh and a runcible spoon lor those who think that all this world lacks is order, and that we are progressing to wards this. Apart from the fact that order is extremely dull, and is not at all more than an arti ficial subjugation, of different modes of order, it is very doubtful that man has made much real progress in his na ture. Social and political progress, yes; scientific progress, yes; medical progress, yes — but basic progress, no, emphatic ally. This particular Western civ ilisation has progressed, _ is evolving, but it is not getting a whole long way in making man happier, more aware, or more God-like. This being so, the flatulent and malodorous mouthings of the extremists who try to bring an implacably, absolutely mor ally good, &c., scheme to frui tion 'for the ultimate benefit of mankind,' can only amuse or sicken. Communism is one such sys tem, but it is little different from other systems whose na tural correlative is smug ...
S.R.C. ACTIVITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
S.R.C ACTIVITY This year the attendance ! at our S.R.C. meetings lias been much Letter than. last year, and perhaps because each committee member has a lot to contribute, the meetings have been very* protracted. At the last meeting many I steps forward were taken and COLIN MACKERRAS I ? . i policy on matters carried over from last year was formulated. First of all with regards to the relationship between the C.U.C. and N.U.A.U.S. policy was crystallised to the effect ] that the Students' Association is going to pay its correspond ing membership fee for the current academic year. 1 The 1957 fee, a legacy of the Masterman regime, will also be paid, but other debts con- . sidered to be of an indefinite | nature, will be ignored. All students are urged to consider what advantages we get from membership in light of making a decision as to full membership next year. 1 * * * A much-needed Rags Com mittee was set up to ferment or foment activity in the Col lege, despite Ron Fraser's as sert...
LEGALITIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
LEGALITIES An incident in a novel by Cyril Hare goes something like this. A woman bar rister has committed mur der. A diligent young' lawyer finds out tiie facts and writes a letter to her, revealing his knowledge both of the facts and of the legal consequences. The letter merely says '(1953) Q.B. 57,' but this lady barrister knows her law so well, that without looking up the reference, she commits suicide. Less gifted lawyers who look it up will be interested to find the reference is to a purely innocuous passage of law. * * * Apart from the late arrival of the band, the Annual Law Ball, held at the Ainslie-Rex ' Carlton Lounge, was all the things that a neat string of platitudes could indicate. The abstract importance lies in its symbolising the unity of lawyers as a profession, and the very fact that a student at law is very much a profes sional man who knows where he is going. Let the law students ' be aware of this unity, and the fact that he is even now learn ing not only the ...
ROYAL RUBBISH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
ROYAL RUBBISH A short time ago a new so ciety was born with the im pressive title, 'The Canberra University College Royal Adu lation Society.' Apart from observing con tinuous royal adulation and PERHAPS accepting invita tions to all Royal occasions, this society has no particular aims. 300 vacancies exist for new members, while subscriptions are claimed to be amazingly low, especially for the season when royalty is not around, or fair game. New members are advised to come in bowing. This sounds the very thing for a certain horn-rimmed, non-university Narellanite from external af fairs. Alas no further news has been received of the society's adulatory activities. A pity for such a deserving cause to fail.
MELBOURNE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 29 July 1959
MELBOURNE (A.U.P.)— The S.R.C. — co ordinated University Exhibi tion is to be held on Wednes day the 24th at Melbourne Uni versity to publicise the Univer sity and to highlight the £500.000 Building Fund Ap peal. Miss Buttsworth's earthy 'Gee-ee they're nice,' aptly expressed general opinion. Nea Sides pessimistically wanted to know what these rooms would cost to live in. However, the question really was put when a realistic male asked, 'How long before these are finished?' Perhaps he should have said, 'How long before these are started?'

WHY PEGAWAI? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 12 October 1959
WHY&PEGjWAI? Those wlm Jack their nature that makes men explor^^idd^Ss^deserts for the heck of it, will not be interested in this. 'This' is the Pegawai Scheme — under which volunteer graduates go to Indonesia to assist in the technical and social reconstruction of that country It's Aims The aim of the scheme in brief is 'to promote under standing and good relation ships by sending to Indonesia trained Australians to work oo a basis of equality with Indo nesians.' In practice this means that, having been accepted by the Indonesian Government for employment — (whatever your field — science, education, or engineering, etc.) — the Aus tralian Government pays your fare there and certain minor allowances (e.g. a bicycle). Once there you work as any other Indonesian, eating Indo nesian food, living on Indones ian pay (not very high), mak ing Indonesian friends . . . Why should anyone want to go off for a year or two to a strange land, perhaps leaving behind more lucrative pros pec...

The new S.R.C. has been led by Colin Mackerras and much has been achieved by them. One of the most important but less publicised reforms of the S.R.C. was the adoption of a new constitution. The Sports Council did not man age to stir this year and the S.R.C. has been forced to carry on for this virtually de funct body. COMMON ROOM With increased student mem bers the common room has seen more people in it this year than ever before. Up un til this term the common room has seldom been any thing but crowded.

Bob Reece: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 12 October 1959
Bob Reece: I960 is going to be the cru cial year in the development of the C.U.C. and the obvious way to ensure development is to attract more students. Firstly, and most important of all, students must be pro vided with cheap accommoda tion that can compete with that of other universities. Un til the Hall of Residence is completed, presumably 'early in 1961,' Narellan House is the only definite source of ac commodation and it is defin itely not cheap. The principal has stated that students may receive second preference at the Acton Guest House in 1960 and that the College 'is prepared to advertise for' priv ate board.' None of these pro visions would be adequate, even if they were definite. Narellan House may be able to accommodate another 30 students next year, but no further extensions to the build are planned. Armidale University offers subsidised accommodation at £3/5/- per week, almost half the Narellan tariff. To attend the C.U.C. is to make a fin ancial sacrifice. Secondly, ...
Chris Jay: [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 12 October 1959
Chris Jav: a I feel that autonomy will at tract many more students to ihe College and help put us on the map with other univer sities. Since the A.N.U. and Melbourne won't have us, au tonomy is the only alternative. We have the numbers, we have uiv luavnmg oianuaiua. wc have one of the best staffs in I, Australia and one of the best exam records. There is no rea ; ; son why we cannot emulate New England University in northern N.S.W., which has I ) earned a very good reputation since it got its independence. |i A particular advantage will j be the chance to wipe out some of the more fantastic of i ; the Melbourne curriculum re : quirements. The most notori ous is the language require ment, which has spawned the ; subject French IA, for those ? who must pass French but - can't, but there are many oth ers.
'AUSTRALIAN ACCENT' [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 12 October 1959
AUSTRALIAN ACCENT' By Douglas Pringle The author of the book is a Scotsman who, for five years, was editor of the Sydney Morning Her aSd. Australian Accent contains Mr. Pringle's impressions of the Aus tralian Nation and, more particu larly, the Australian people. Much insight to some recent political affa irs, tastes in literature, culture, etc. have been obtained from a close association with the press and, as one might expect, the style is quite Siocid. Mr. Pringle lays open many of the 'behind the scenes' activities of current affairs in Australia as well as a well informed impression of de velopment along other lines such ns the structure of Aus tralian society, culture, poetry, etc. The chapter, 'Santa- maria, Santamaria' give a particularly good introduction to the Groupist movement within the A.L.P. as does the chapter on 'Politics and Poli ticians' give an insight to some of the lesser known as spects of democratic govern ment. But it is not a book de voted solely to politi...

OLD NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 12 October 1959
OLD NEWS The recently concluded Roy al Visit saw the C.U.C. rise from its slumber and actually stage a rag. Even more start ling was the fact that the rag was a success. A familiar 'sports car,' es corted by motor cyclists drove the 'Princess' (Stella ord) tnrough Civic Centre to the delight of the crowd. A celery planted ceremony was enacted before the 'Princess' departed. Neither the Queen nor a Prince accompanied the 'Prin- cess.' * * * The College was well repre sented at other Royal func tions, with a large number at tending the Luncheon and several at the Royal Ball. Recent rumours suggest that the College will be amalga mated with the National Uni versity. Should these be sub stantiated then there is noth ing that could change the ar rangements. Students generally accept the fact that there are many ad vantages that could be gained from amalgamation. However, general student opinion is against union with the young post-graduate insti tution. Students feel that a vigorous expr...
