ORIENTATION WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

ORIENTATION WEEK Orientation Weeks are not a new thing, even for Canberra University College. However, Orientation Week this year was a further milestone in the history of this institution. For the first time the full-time population of the College was sufici ent to warrant a full, and stimulating week's activities.

The purpose of an Orientation Week must surely be to orientate new students. It is impossible to assimil ate them in such a short time. However, our Orientation Week was successful in that few newcomers can say that they did not get to know the plaice. This was made all the more easy by the good attendance at all functions by second and later year students. There were o...

STILL WAITING WE ASSAIL THE CITY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

STILL WAITING WE ASSAIL THE CITY Once again the students of this College await the word of Australia's veteran procrastinator, the Right Honourable R. G. Meniies. However, we sincerely hope that the announcement will be on time, this time. At the moment the College is semi-autonomous. We have almost severed our tie with Melbourne University and our first-year courses have been planned. Despite tiie disappointment which many felt at the pro posed amalgamation with A.N.U., most were placated by the Prime Minister's invitation to the two councils to submit agreed plans for the union. As we go to the press we do not know to what extent these recommendations will be ac cepted by Cabinet. Opinions and comments from those associated with the amalgamation give only a slight indication of the likely outcome of Cabinet's decision and of the future of this in stitution. It appears Cabinet realises that the decision to amalgam ate us with the A.N.U. was un popular. However, the political implic...

FACULTY DAY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

FACULTY DAY Orientation Week was officially inaugurated by Faculty Day, held at 2.30 p.m. in the College Hall: The Principal, Professor Burton, welcomed students from every State as well as the A.C.T., declaring that 'an interesting and exciting year lies ahead for us all'. He considered that the amalgamation of the Australian National University and the College would be of indisputable benefit, particularly for the undergraduates, who would eventually receive degrees of the A.N.U. A limited number of scholarships on a national basis was hoped for. too. This year's enrolment of well over 800, more than 200 of whom arc full-time students might lead to a certain amount of overcrowding, despite the present active building pro gramme, Professor Burton said. However, any temporary in convenience must be over shadowed by the promise of (he future. Professor Burton went on to speak of student life, with particular reference to the change needed in mental attit ude of those coming to univer...

CANNED CULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

CANNED CULTURE If you have no time to read, to see art exhibitions, concerts, and you find the conversation of your friends clever and so above your head — do not despair. A few elementary facts will save your standing and your honour. The problem of putting Cul ture over is extremely interest ing. After all, in an age of Digests, Books-of-the-film of ihe-book, Shakespeare in comic strips, and Post-Impressionist Christmas Cards, there seems to be no real reason why one shouldn't acquire a sort of potted culture — jut enough to get one by — in six or seven lessons, without the boredom of having to read whole books, bee whole Art Exhibitions and listen to whole concerts from end to end. In no time at all, a really bright and receptive pupil should be able, if not to ask all the right questions, at least to supply some of the right answers. With this in mind here is a preliminary short list of sub jects, names, remarks and what-have-you which should see anybody through an awk ward part...

C.U.C. - A.N.U. MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

C.U.C. - A.N.U. MARRIAGE Thursday's luncheon debate, on the topic 'C.U.C.- A.N.U. amalgamation is a happy marriage', was con siderably more successful than the effort of two day's before. John Archer, an almost im promptu first speaker for the government, claimed the amal gamation was the only political possibility, and that the advice of the University Commission and other learned bodies was sufficient justification of the decision. He also mentioned the economic aspect of the expense involved in maintain ing two administrative and acadcmic staffs. NO LOVE George Martin ..opened his attack on behalf of the oppos ition by stating that 'I have yet to see a happy marriage until the ceremony has taken place.' Furthermore, he felt that the omission of romantic love in this marriage by arrangement, left the partner ship no hope of success. Public opinion, he said, in the form of letters to the Press by professors and students, both of C.U.C. and A.N.U. was also against the move, which wa...

BOY-GIRL CLASH [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 18 March 1960

BOY -GIRL CLASH Due perhaps to propaganda posted around the University, by which some irresponsible female made the dangerous assertion, 'Female = Male — prove it by playing hockey, girls!', sufficient people arrived at Turner Oval to be able to stage this annual reiteration of the fact, namely that Girls DO NOT= Boys. The game started off in typical manner, with the males under the leadership of Glee son and McLaughlin bursting through to an early lead. During the first half, the game was dominated by the males. However, in the course of the second period, the game Matured above all the umpire. Mike, due to his vast experi ence in the game, controlled the match with an iron hand. The girls rallied and scored once or twice, but in the mean time the boys' ^score^Wasfpr gotten. In vie^-rfv\this,/ umpire-^ Austin declariecKa draw. ' '7 ? ;'S I 'cr , v \.

OUR OWN ATOM BOMB (Continued from page 3) [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

OUR OWN ATOM BOMB (Continued from page 3) At this point ' it v might be 1 considered necessary to qua!sh certain obviously unfounded rumours that the tower is later to be used as a tele vision broadcasting ? aerial. Although such a horrific fan tasy should exist only in the minds of our more demented citizens this one is actually gaining ground. However, before mass hys teria takes charge, it is pointed out that a section1 of our ? advanced physics' men should prove only too willing to devise and place a suitable contraption on the edifice in question.' But before such methods are resorted to it must' also be pointed -out that volunteers to. press the little red button will be treated strictly- . in order of precedence.

TRAINEE TEACHERS ACTIVE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

TRAINEE TEACHERS ACTIVE rPRAlNEE teachers' are once again on the rnarcl^ and for good reason. Allow ances are meagre, but Can berra students fare ? worse than those elsewhere because Of several local factors. The most important of these are, firstly, the high cost of accommodation at Lennox, and more particularly - at Bruce' Hall, and the pernici ous' demand for payment- in advance at the latter establish ment. This creates a severe strain for many trainee teachers, who receive ? their first instalment at thenend of March. Secondly, the cost of. living is significantly higher in Can berra than it is in. the metro politan area. And thirdly, transport to and from home during vaca tions is more of a problem to those living outside of Can berra than it is to most of those at other training centres. To forward the interests of .those concerned . in these im portant matters,- a Trainee Teachers' , Association (T.T. A.) was formed on Thursday, March 22, at a meeting of about 40 students. T...

RUGBY WILL SWING THIS SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

RUGBY WILL SWING THIS SEASON 'PHE 1962 Rugby season, opened on Saturday, March 17, with a first mafcli against Goulburn. Between 30 and 40 University players took part. The match was not par ticularly encouraging from University's point of view. Although the players were fairly even, the home side did not play impressively, especially in the forwards who were consistently beaten for possession in the scrums and' rucks. Most of the good work came from the newcomers. Forestry's Kiwi winger John Marriot was always alert and looked dangerous whenever the ball came his way. Dave Andean worked hard and his condition seemed to hold out much better than that of some, of the recognised footballers. Keith Chandler gave his usual neat display and his recent marriage does 'not seem to have slowed him down. The club's A.G.M. was held on March 8 in the Childers Street Common Room, with a large number of prospective players in attendance. There were some minor changes to the constitution to bring ...

AND ALL THEY DID WAS TALK AND TALK AND... [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

AND ALL THEY One ok' the debating society's most successful functions to date was held on Wednesday, March 21 in the tank with a debate 'That the Concept of God has Outlived its Purpose.' Though the topic as it stands is an interest one and quite worthy of full debate, it was almost inevitable that the issue should change during the evening to the hackneyed struggle between religion and atheism.. Mr. Davidson, however, did his best to avoid that end by asserting that the Gov ;ernmen;t was-l? not concerned iwith the existence lor other wise of God, but to show that He was, no longer neces sary to mari.^ At this point of -' peremptory dismissal of - the Almighty by a student, a iProfound and inexplicable gloom settled , on this par ticular agnostic/ but' I stayed to hear Mr. Davidson further. He proceeded to speak of ;the progress of science and the consequent elimination of God from scientific causal explanations, and of the growth of scientific historical studies and a ? similar en ...
