BRAVE NEW WEDDING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
BRAVE NEW WEDDING The sketch, Cupid Rampant, opening Act 3, broke new ground. An exhibition of the tyranny which threatens to replace our present society, it moved more slowly and struck more seriously than the rest of the revue. Ken Rogers , the bootlicking and bully ing sergeant, and hancy Gleeson White , a cross between the Chief Guide and Madame Kollonbai ('sex is as simple and necessary as a glass of water ' ' ) were out standing; Piere Hutton (the order ly) and Dick Woolcott and Jill Crichton (the unmarrieds) turned in very polished work. The script, however, earned the main credit with its obvious theatrical merits and the skill with which it showed what tyranny is. II. D. The latter half of the scene in the Government offices, between Gerry Nutter and the versatile Kevin Rogers, this time in the role of a. country hayseed, was one of the best parts of the revue. Gerry Nutter (the clerk) was slick, per haps too efficient to be in keeping with the character the revue was attri...

OUR MAIDEN REVUE ... A POST MORTEM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
OUR MAIDEN REVUE . . . A POST MORTEM Our first revue is dead and snigger mortis has set in. From all standpoints it was a great success. After the curtain had ?fallen on the final night there was an atmosphere of quiet triumph. A challenge had been met and pre-performance anxieties had been dispelled. 'Capital Capers' compared favourably with the revues of uni versities with twenty times the resources of the Canberra University College, and where part-time student participation in revue is almost unknown. Enthusiasm was the dynamic which swept aside all difficulties and drove the production on to success. The revue should stimulate an awareness of the University College which previous inertia has retarded. With refreshing defiance, many of the absurdities of life in the Federal Capital were laid bare, before an audience, only a small section of which could have been drawn from the student body. This initial success is therefore an important event in the development of the College an...
ARTICLE ON WOLFE CRITICISED "Advice on Introducing little-Known Geniuses." [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
ARTICLE ON WOLFE CRITICISED ' Advice on Introducing little-Known Geniuses A recent article by Mr. Powell leads me to inquire 'In what con sists the genius of T. 'Wolfe ? ' Please do not misunderstand the tenor of this question. I am not uninterested in ' immense allem bracing* panoramas of life,' special ised in, apparently, by Thomas Wolfe as well as Cecil B. de Mille. A very dear friend of mine becomes ecstatic whenever the octopus fight in de Mille 's 'Reap the Wild Wind' is recalled. However I have been completely dependent upon meet ing these experiences, vicariously. I have still to feel the embrace of Thomas Wolfe's view of life. Really, Mr. Powell's1 substitution of adjectival nonsense for criticism, and eulogy for judgement require a gentle rebuke; gentle, for one is grateful to Messrs. Powell and Woolcott for the great enthusiasm a-nd industry, which has trans formed the bleak Student Notes into the interesting Woroni. This gratitude does not oblige one . to accept, withou...
A's DEFEAT AFTER RUN OF WINS Both B Teams Win as Usual SATURDAY, JULY 22. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
A's DEFEAT AFTER RUN OF WINS Both B Teams Win as Usual SATURDAY, JULY 22. University A team suffered its first defeat for two months when Norths won 1-0 in a close game. University was unfortunate to lose its star right half Jim Kay e in the first few minutes of play. Mitchell was an able substitute, in spite of his earlier match. On several oc casions the University forward line was in a position to score but missed centres proved costly. North's speed and dash reflected the pressure of their representative players and they will bei a hard team to defeat for the premiership honours. The University defence was severely tested by Royle and Smith. The, latter scoring the only goal of the match after a movement down the right wing. B No. 2 : In a hard, rugged game at Reid, University defeated Norths 3-0. University's first goal came from Craigie, who received a nice back sticks pass from Pead. Jones, with good play, drew North's def ence and passed to Pead for our second goal. Norths a...
EARLY LAUGHS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
EARLY LAUGHS Deceived by false starts to the ' National Anthem and the arrival of bogus dignitaries, the audience were chuckling before the curtain . rose . ' 'Bab v ' ' Bill Morrison, wear 1/ 7 ing a specially constructed napkin, announced the commencement of 'Capital Capers — a 'rank' produc tion. . Bill S. Morrison, Kevin Rogers . and Bill Wells played the three Communists in the first sketch, Jill Crichton opening the show confidently. All did well, especially Bill Morrison , who did not miss the chance of a laugh. Their mechanical actions were effective and they carried the script, which although mildly amusing was too crude for good satire. ?The skit on the Department of the Interior was one of the high lights of the sliow and -captured most of the idiocies attributed to it. J ill Crichton and Bob Byrnes were adequate as the; civil servants. The civil servants song was gener ally goody all the soloists winning laughs, but . the chorus could have been stronger. Ken Rogers , as ...
REVUE COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
REVUE COMMENT Dear Sirs. — Last- Thursday even ing I was a member of an audience which thoroughly enjoyed a per formance of ' Capital Capers. ' ' The first - performance of a Re vue by the students of the College will, without a doubt, prove to be a landmark in the history of our rapidly developing Colege. I would like all who had a part in the production to accept my con gratulations upon producing such a good show and for providing an other avenue through which the College is brought before the public of Canberra. Great credit must be given to all those Avho took a part in what must have been a task of some magni tude. It is very gratifying to be able to look back upon such a very good performance. There is little need for me to comment upon the acts which went to make up the revue because the commendation heard oil all sides speaks for itself. I hope a revue will be an annual event and that it will become a regular part of commencement week, taking its place with the Commencement...
B TEAMS WIN MATCHES IN MUD A Team's Bve SATURDAY, JULY 29 [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
B TEAMS WIN MATCHES IN MUD A Team's Bve SATURDAY, JULY 29 B No. 2 : University made the most of sunshine in the first half of the game at Turner to lead Waratahs 4-nil at interval. Con tinuous rain plus Staunton's excel lent goal keeping kept University 's score to one sroal in the second half Throughout the match play was confined to one half of the field, the ball seldom passing the Univ ersity half line. Scorers: Craigie 3, Pead 2. Best Players: Craigie, Pead, Jones, Rogers. B No. 3 : On the Turner mud bowl University defeated Old Can berrans 2-1. There was no score in the first half. The prospects of a mud bath, if they lost their foot ing, did not induce players to put much dash into their play. In the second half, by which time most players had aquired a tast for mud, the pace quickened. Hutton scored for University, but Kestel soon equalised for Old Canberrans. The winning goal for University came from Doug Hill. Best 'players: Richardson, Dean, Kruger.
PRODUCTION FLAW [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
PRODUCTION FLAW ? V The gap betwen Act 1 and Act - j 2 was a major flaw in the produc- 7 ; tion and had full scale rehearsals * taken place earlier the need of a * comedian or an entract would have f j been discovered. The result of the N delay was that the sparkle had * evaporated and the merriment had t died and at the beginning of Act 2 the cast had to recapture its audience. Trevor Betts' reading of a song, to the disturbing accom paniment of the crashing of scen ery and the thudding of hammers; was a gallant improvisation, but no more. The second act, set in the King 's Hall, provided some excellent im personations of several of our better known ]30 1 iticans, although at times the political humous? was crude. Bob Byrnes as the guide ' did well. Jim Peade, a thinly dis guised Dame Enid Lyons, carried out his part, which was in dubious taste, adequately. One of the i droll turns of the show was the J Bill Morrisons' handling of the ? ^ Liberal- C. P. coalition. Bill L. Morrison ...
KOREA AND COMMUNISM [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
KOREA AND COMMUNISM Many Australians seem to know what is happening in Korea, but few know that the United Nations forces are fighting there, and why.y What ought to be clear is that the enemy is not Communism. Nor is it Russia, though the enemy has Rus sian support. The war in Korea is a war against aggression. The North Korean aggression came as a chal lenge to the United Nations, and the only way to meet it was to show the aggressors that the United Nations has the will to resist aggression, and the power to restore and keep the k peace. Henceforth, the Security Council should work as it was intend ed to work, applying military sanc tions to all 'threats to the peace, breaches of the peace and acts of aggression.' At the moment, news from the Korean front is grim. The United States, as the backbone of the United Nations forces, finds itself in the posi tion of beginning a war without pre paration and being forced to buy time as best it can. But marines have just arrived from Cali...
BERTRAND RUSSELL ... PROVOCATIVE ...? Asia Not His Metier [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
BERTRAND RUSSELL . . . PROVOCATIVE , . . ? Asia Not His Metier One may very well query the ? advisability of inviting Bertrand ?Russell, however eminent he may be in his own sphere, to speak on international relations and particu larly ' ' Ferment in Asia. ' ' It seems fair to say that in so doing the Institute of International Affairs has once again demonstrated that in its preference for eminent rather than learned speakers it is not con tributing towards its avowed aim of promoting a serious study of international affairs. Russell could contribute no more to the understanding of the pro blems of Asia than a reasonably advanced undergraduate. In fact, some of his conclusions on that subject or rather his method of arriving at them would receive severe criticism in undergraduate circles. For example, it is simply not an intelligent''' contribution at all to say that one believes that the scepticism and individualism inherent in the Chinese character will combine to make Chinese Com...

In the China Shop ... v Respectable . . . nothing neiv. * ?I' V Children at Play * The circular which gives bio graphical details of the Vice- y chancellors of various universities v attending the V-C's Conference * introduces the U.K. delegation ? thus: 'The U.K. delegation to the ^ conference actually consists of four members— Mr. D.

POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB MEETING [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 17 August 1950
POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB MEETING The most useful work done by the United Nations Economic and Social Council is in technical mat ters. That is the opinion of a former Australian delegate, Mr. Gordon Jock el, who spoke at the Political Science Club on Wednes day tlie^ 3rd.' * T he economic work of the Coun cil is done through the Specialised Agencies and Technical Commis sions, which work on specific pro jects in the field. Economically back ward countries, for example, are gratefully receiving technical assistance, although they would scorn similar assistance offered by any individual country. The social work of EcoSoc, by contrast, is conducted in an atmos phere of intellectual idealism, and most delegates waste the Council 's time wrangling over moral prin ciples, peddling their national ideologies and passing futile re solutions. At the conclusion of Mr. Jockel's address, members were treated to super in the students' Common Room. ? A.J.R.
LOOKING BACK ON THE HOCKEY SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 2 November 1950
LOOKING BACK ON THE HOCKEY SEASON by Mick Walsh With a number of new recruits to swell its ranks the C.U.C. Hoc key Club again fielded three teams in the local competition. THE A TEAM, with practically the same line up as last year, had a mixed season. Some of its wins were the result of high class hockey, some of its defeats could only be attributed to lack of 'team spirit. ' ' The team finished in third position at the end of the minor rounds, a creditable performance, but was defeated by Waratahs in the first semi-final. An infusion of younger players is required next season if we are to win an A Grade pennant. As the C team in previous years had proved too strong for the other teams in that division, the Associa tion acceded to our request to play two teams in the B Division. The performances of both teams during the season fully justified this move. The FIRST B TEAM, captained by Mick Walsh, finished in second position behind Barton at the end of the minor rounds, and won the P...
