LETTERS SMOKING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
LETTERS SMOKING To the Editor : Sir, — Feeling slightly bored during Orientation Week, I decided to stand in and observe some of the Freshers being orientated. The Wednesday jazz session seemed to be as good a form KJi wj.i iii i ici iiiiiiwiiL aa ciiiy. ou along I went. Fearing a herd of Freshers would be present I arrived early and secured a seat on the most comfortable couch. Putting my feet up I settled down to wait the com mencement of proceedings. The jazz was good but the Freshers were most unrespons ive. Looking down from my many years as an under graduate I thought — poor folk, what a shame to be so naive, uncouth and obviously scared stiff. But suddenly I realised something important was going on in front of me. There I saw five Fresher females attempting to hide their freshnes,s in a display of sophistication. They were indulging in that pastime which gen(ee! folk use to avoid those pregnant silences — smoking. How elegant they looked — fully seventeen I woud say and look...

SAFARI [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
SAFARI One of the most important expeditions to the interior this year was carried out by two members of this establishment in February — The venue of this hunting I and exploratory journey was the lower Goodradig 5ee Valley — the almost impenetrable tract of land from Piccadilly Circus to Wee Jasper which was completely traversed by these two College lads, not accompanied by native car riers. The most surprising feature of the journey was that neither of the party was Australian. The Span ish Adventurer and the former Grimsby lad joined the ranks of Straziechi and Mueller, th eimmortal dis coverers to whom we Aus tralians owe so much. GAME Pigs, foxes and rabbits fell to the withering fire of the Spaniard who managed to keep the team supplied with fresh meat. This, was fortunate as History Hon ours candidate Harrison found his touchy Lithgow could shoot nothing but one solitary rabbit. PYJAMAS Adding colour to the wilderness one of the party appeared each night re splendant in a pa...

"ON THE BEACH" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
'ON THE BEACH' Long the target of certain modern American propaganda, the average Australian moviegoer undoubtedly expected something truly momentous of 'On The Beach'. But the many who must have been disappointed should blame the build-up, not the film itself. in a theme whose pattern, was not sufficiently cut and dried, the cast battled bravely. The performances given by Gregory Peck as the U.S. naval commander, and Fred Astaire, as the bachelor - scientist, contrib uted admirably to the set ting o fthis theme. Donna Anderson is to be congratulated on having brought the breath of real ism to a difficult role. However, Ava Gardner did not impress, for the aloof ness of her style did not blend with the general atmosphere. The use of 'Waltzing Mathilda' is surprisingly effective. Any Australian will 'get a kick' out of see ing the name of A. B. Pat terson among the list of credits. Kramer obviously in tended 'On the Beach' to have a great emotional im pact; he has failed in his inten...
WEDDING BELLS McCarthy - Ainsworth [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
WEDDING BELLS McCarthy - Ainsworth On Saturday, 27ht February, in St. John's Church, the mar riage of Marion Ainsworth to Alfred McCarthy was solemn ised. Marion and Alf are well known at the College — both having completed courses here. Over 100 guests were enter tained at a reception at the residence of the registrar of the A.N.U. (Mr. Hohnen) who is a relative of the bride. Following the reception, the couple left for their honey moon which was spent on Lord Howe Island.
S.R.C. NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
S.R.C. NEWS Considering the exams and the fact that the Col lege has been in recess for three months it is hardly surprising that the S.R.C. has not been as active re cently as usual. However, a meeting has been held every month, at which plans for Orientation Week, etc., were discussed. This year's Orientation Week was organised entirely by a committee appointed by the S.R.C. The committee con sisted of Peter Ryan, John Archer and John Nosworthy who was the chairman. These people did an onormous amount of work and deserve all the credit for making Orient ation Week the success we may consider it was. The S.R.C. is very grateful to them indeed and I'm sure every one else is, too. The same applies to Chris Jay who edited the Orientation Week Handbook. At the end of last year another committee was ap pointed to organise the Revue for this year. A producer has been found by the committee. He is Leigh Day, who has had a great deal of experience in producing and is exceedingly competent....
SYMPOSIUM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
SYMPOSIUM Freshers were officially welcomed to the College on Monday night in the Hall, by the Chairman of the College Council, Dr. B. T. Dickson His short address was followed by a Symposium on the subject of 'Your University and You11, the chairman being the Princi pal, Professor Burton Professor L. M. Crisp (Political Science) aroused the strong interest of all male students present by his opening words: 'Quite frankly, my trouble at University was women, well, after a few, one particular woman.' This, he said, involved him in an un advisably large number of extra - curricular activities ranging from the Peace Group to the Glee Club. The moral of Professor Crisp's anecdote was, as , he concluded, 'Leave your mating until after you have graduated.' Mr. B. S. Benjamin, of the Philosophy Department, then deplored over-specialisation in University courses, an obvious, but often regulation evil. Where diversity of subfects was impossible, Mr. Benjamin felt that a liberal education sho...
CELIBACY DEBATED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
CELIBACY DEBATED The lunchtime debate on Tuesday, J st March in (he Common Room was unexpectedly disappointing. With even some slight co-operation between the members of the (wo (cams, (he promising topic, 'Should there be a Tax on Celibacy?' could have been handled more effectively. After Ken Brewer, the Chair man, had pointed out the com plexity of this topic, and the fact that one's attitude towards it can be influenced a great deal by vested interests, Ron Fraser (Government) delivered an occasionally incomprehens ible speech. Although its collection could, admittedly, not be justified on moral grounds, Ron claimed that correlative duty necessit ates a tax on celibacy. A well educated 'thinking'' person, determined to gulp down the fruits of life unpaid for, most realise his responsibilities to wards society. 'We have surely progressed beyond free love,' insisted Ron. This tax is one of expediency, and if the State feels it is needed, it will and should impose it. Ron con cluded...
HOT ON THE TRAIL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
HOT ON THE TRAIL From Special Correspondent 'I Spy'. The College authorities had given information to 'Woroni' that there would be a deluge of Freshers from country centres arriving on the Friday before Orientation Week. Envisaging near-riot scenes at both Narellan and Lennox I went along in search of a scoop. This is what I J found: Arriving at Narellan at three o'clock 1 found the quiet suburban atmosphere undis turbed. Fearing that the new arrivals had been delayed I immediately sought an inter view with the management. The manager was most helpful and having examined the register informed me that females only were being accepted at Narel lan. He further volunteered that twelve Freshers were to take residence there and that only one had arrived. She was out .... Lennox was next approached. Here the scene was not so serene — workmen were begin ning to arrive after the day's work and to my horror 1 learned that the evening meal commenced at a quarter past five. There was not one Fr...
CANBERRA DAY: OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY SEIZED BY C.U.C. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
CANBERRA DAY: OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY SEIZED BY tfJ.C. Canberra Day provided a milestone in the history of this University with our participation in the proces sion commemorating the foundation of the national capital. Three floats, a 1925 fire engine, a wheelbarrow, 400 flour bombs, 1,000 gallons of water, several potent smoke bombs, and 50 or so hell-bent students particip ated. Floats Two floats concerned the amalgamation with the A.N.U., one in particular being apprec iated by the male onlookers. The other depicted various aspects, both factual and hypothetical, of the Chessman case which is causing great controversy in the U.S.A. 'Tarzan' Formenko made an appearance in a wheel barrow pushed by Bob Smith, who when interviewed said: 'I would rather walk to New Guinea than push that barrow around Civic again.' Combat A running battle developed at the Civic Theatre between th.e venerable fire-engine on one hand and Barry The Yank, Bruce McLaughlin and Bob Reece in the latter's 'heap' o...

NARELLAN'S LATEST C.U.C. PRODIGY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
NARELLAN'S LATEST C.U.C. PRODIGY Well-known student Bob Smith has shocked residents of Narellan by extending his activities to the field of music. Though discouraged after one attempt from musicmak Ims* vMirlnirtht 1C lug aiiui iiiLVJiii&ui, uw heard practising his clarinet assiduously every morning after breakfast. Our local correspondent re ports that Bob, described by the manager of Narellan as 'a snake charmer who can't charm snakes'. has now mastered half a scale as well as the once popular 'Que Sera, Sera'. DRAIN ODOUR Several freshers, having been assailed by a powerful odour emanating from the drains in the vicinity of the kitchen and laundry of Narellan, are con ducting an investigation to ascertain the origin of Friday's pea-soup. Other inhabitants are waging a campaign for new irons; the present implements are be lieved to be late eighteenth century antiques. 'MANDI'.
NEWMAN SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
NEWMAN SOCIETY The raison d'etre ok' the Newman Society is the personal sanctification of its members. The Society's aim is to stress the reality of religion and also that it is and must be the guidingforce of all people — not merely a part-time activity which is relegated to an unpleasant hour of worship on Sundays, or a mere subject for enlightened discussion. The Society means to - achievc this aim of personal sanctification by caring for the whole vocation of the student. The reason for the search for truth will be emphasised. The Society will encourage and re mind students of thrs relent less quest. — Father Sertillanges — once said that an intellectual is the 'slave of truth'. No other de- 1 finition could do more justice to the vocation of the intellect ual. for truth is achieved by the intellect's coming into con formity with reality. The search for truth can only be carried out in the spirit of virtue, namely in the spirit of patience, humility and charity. It would perhaps...
CLARK'S LATEST "MEETING SOVIET MAN" [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
CLARK S LATEST 'MEETING SOVIET MAN' Published only very recently, Manning Clark's stimulating and valuable essay (less than 120 pages), 'Meeting Soviet Man', which details his 1958 experiences as a member of the three-man delegation fromn the Commonwealth Council of the Fellowship of Australian Writers, to the counterpart Union of Soviet Writers, is really an soliloquy on the soul and spirit o£ 'Soviet Man'. To learn of the economic basis of the country, of its agricultural and industrial possibilities, one would be forced to turn elsewhere, how ever. For this is essentially a synthesis of his impressions of 'Soviet Man's' less materialis tic activities, his aspirations, his leisure, his freedom, from which Professor Clark has drawn rather philosophical generalsiations, such as: 'Soviet Man believes in the triumph of the human spirit, not in its defeat: in life, not in death.' Interest This passionate interest of Professor Clark in the mind of the Russian and its potentialit ies, le...
SHAME [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
SHAME Probably the greatest disappointment of Orient ation Week was the poor attendance at Professor Ben Morris' lecture during Fri day's lunch break. Becausc of the poor attend ance (thirty lucky people) the venue was changed from the Hall to the Common Room. This' was a very successful change as the address by Professor Morris was able to assume the nature of an in formal address rather than a lecturc. Student Fraternity Having been introduced by Mr Meckiff, District Inspector of Schools, Professor Morris gave a very sincere, amusing and informative address. The theme of the address was the stressing of the benefits gained from a liberal education. Stu dents are a worldwide fratern ity and are privileged to be able to enjoy the freedom of university life. The address closed with the theme summed up with 'work hard, play hard and above all learned to do nothing grace fully'. A luncheon followed which was enjoyed by members of (he staff, the S.R.C. and a 'Woroni' observer.
VISITORS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960
VISITORS! Unbeknown )to many stu dents, the College was vi, sited on Thursday, March 4th, be tween 4.30 p.m. and 5 p.m. by a three-man delegation from the Australian Union of Univ ersity Student's Conference, held recently in Hobart. The visitors were Kawai-san, an undergraduate from Tokyo University, making his first trip around the Australian capitals, accompanied by Aus tralian students Jim Williams and Brian O'Grady. S.R.C. President, Colin Mac kerras, and several Oriental Studies enthusiasts, entertained them to afternoon tea in the Common Room. Comfy Couches Favourable comments were passed on the friendly atmo sphere of the Common Room, its comfort and decor. 'People here seem to be having a better time than they do in the Com mon Room at our University,' said Brian O'Grady; 'And the couches are more comfortable than is usually considered safe,' added Jim Williams. Bob Recce pointed out the bizarre architectural notions of the opposition. While Vic Gleeson claimd that the A.N....
