RIVER PARTY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
RIVER PARTY Friday evening following the Lehrer evening at the Capitol, saw a motley col lection of University types converge on the Cotter River. a ? ! ? j. — 1 ? T ? .... ? /A pilVctlC UcUUCCUC was suddenly enlarged when it was known that Lehrer was to attend. Because of the presence of such a celebrity the organisation has excused the many gate crashers. Orgy Lehrer was overawed by the riotous nature of the evening, which can only be described as an orgy. There is no doubt that everybody was either am used or shocked. It was such a party that one student who didn't have a girl at the party went into the river because he rec koned that he saw a mer maid. No doubt if C.U.C. is lucky Lehrer may produce a sickening song to im mortalise the occasion.
S.R.C. NEWS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
S.R.C. NEWS Upon the resignation of Bob de Viana from the S.R.C., Mary Eccles was appointed as the Secretary o fthe S.R.C. and part timer Pat Flynn was co opted as an ordinary mem ber. The elections for the new S.R.C. are now being arranged and nominations are being called for by Don Brewster, whom the S.R.C. appointed re turning officer. It is hoped that there will be many nom inations this year, as in past years a disappointing amount of interest has been shown in elections. Regulations The question of disorder and drunkenness at S.R.C. functions was brought up at an S.R.C. meeting recently in the pre sence of the Principal and Mr. Keith, who expressed concern over the matter. We thank them for attending the meeting and hope that they will do this more, in the future. The ques tion of drunkenness, etc., we hope to solve by some dis ciplinary regulations which the S.R.C. is drawing up. The S.R.C. is also in the process of drawing up 'Clubs and Societies' regulations, and 'Publicati...
Marriage Legislation [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Marriage Legislation On Thursday, March 24, the Prime Minister, Mr. Menzies, introduced legislation into the House of Representatives to associate the Australian National University and the Canberra University College. The bill provides a structure for the coalescence of these two bodies into one organisa tion which is to come into being for the commencement of the academic year of 1961. The adjustments involved in this integration having been already debated, he proposed constitution of the new Univer sity will be roughly as follows: 9 An overhead allencom passing body known as the Australian National University governed by a Council of the University. © An Institute of Advanced Studies, within the University but governed by its own Board, concerned with matters relating to research schools and the conferring of doctorates.

FROM THE SIDELINE An independent report FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
FROM THE SIDELINE An independent report by ' Dave ' FOOTBALL As ibis is the first football report of the year I would like to publicly welcome the amal gamation of the C.U.C., A.N.U. and A.F.S. Rugby Union teams. This merger can only be for the good of the code in the A.C.T. and I think (as do a great many others) that this club will perforin more than creditably in the three grades -o which it had been allocated. However, players are still required for the Under 18 team and as most freshers fall into this category it is hoped that a few more lads may be able to play. Coaches and trainers con tacted have been willing, but I hey must have payers willing lo TRAIN. Trial Matches Several trial matches have been played to date. The first, against glamour side Royals, was a veritable battle as there were quite a few injuries. An unofficial point score gave Royals a 3-point lead at the end but scores can be no in dication as players are continu ally being changed. Convincing Win The follow...
STUDENTS MASS OUTSIDE HIGH COMMISSION NO BLOODSHED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
STUDENTS MASS OUTSIDE HIGH COMMISSION NO BLOODSHED On Tuesday St was necessary for the farst time in the history of the South African High Commission for police, complete with batons and note books, to be caBied in to preserve the lives of South Africans in Aus tralia. Over one hundred students of the College, Staff and A.N.U. students pro gressed from the Workmen's Club to the office of the High Commission, the excuse being the presentation of a petition. While the petition bearing \ 522 signatures was being pre- : sented, students milled menac ingly on the lawns outside the i High Commission. Police in squad cars and on cycles stood by to prevent the use of mach ine guns. Esteem j Indicative of the esteem in rally, the High Commissioner, Mr. Hamilton, was absent for the presentation. His secretary, Mr. Slyman received the peti tion but was obviously not moved by the strength of it. Meanwhile, the thronging crowd on the lawns was reach ing fever-pitch. Police stood by as students j...
Ghoul at Capitol [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Ghoul at Capitol One thousand people thronged the Capitol Theatre to hear the sickening songs of the man hilled as the greatest living ghoul. Amongst the huge crowd were hundreds of students as well as some of Canberra's most distinguished, and disgusting citizens. People from all sections of i Canberra's stratified society roared with laughter at this obsce — (sorry) — sophisticated performance. Sickness Lehrer wasn't joking when he said he performs to thous ands of sick people, they ;nust be sick to go to such a repul sive show. Sex Rsdden The audience was treated to 'clever' renditions of songs which were subsequently banned in the older and sophis- , ticated city of Adelaide. i The standard of these songs | can only be described as low, I the lyrics are sex ridden and j sickening in their presentation. At no time did the standard of (he lyrics rise above (hat of a C.U.C. revue script. Gutter Filth Lehrer's repartee and racy commentary helped to assuage the 'gutter' standard of t...
Woman's Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Woman's Hockey The annual general meet ing of the club was held on March JO. Among other th'ngs, the election of office-bearers was held, re sulting in Joan Morgan as President, Mary Eccles as Vice - president, Elizabeth Reid as Secretary, Mar guerite le Mesurier as Treasurer, and Marion Beveridge and Helen Hespe as Committee Members. i Opening Day Opening day for the Associ ation is tentatively April 9, so the girls have already started practising. As is usual, however, there is no one time during the week when everyone can come to practice, so additional times are to be arranged. If the support offered by fresherettes continues through out the season, there will be two teams entered in the com petition. SYDNEY An attraction later in the year is the possibility of a trip to Sydney to try and avenge the defeat suffered here last year when the Sydney University girls camel up.
Distribution [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960

MEALS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
MEALS The move by the S.R.C. to attempt to institute an evening meal service at the college is a sound one. There appear to be two great benefits which may arise from this addition to College life. Benefits The first and most obvious benefit is that many students, part-timers in particular, who have evening lectures, will be saved the trouble of going out of the College to get their evening meal. The second and most im portant benefit is not so obvious and arises from the first. An evening meal will provide an opportunity for part-timers to come together with themselves and also with full-timers in the Common Room. This is indeed an ex perience which will be wel comed by the many part-timers who feel that they are missing out on this important facet of university life. The convivial association of students over an evening meal should be even more stimulat ing than that which takes place at lunch time — we hope so. There should be no doubt as to whether or not we have sufficient numb...
SPORT SPATE OF CRICKET An Entire Seasons Results Staff v. Students Cricket Match [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
SPOftl SPATE OF CRICKET An Entire Seasons Results Staff v. Students Cricket Match Sunday, March 13 and Kingston Oval saw the Students in action against our revered Staff. Doubts were cast on our chances by rumours circulating to the effect that our mentors were going to throw against us a former State player and two Cambridge stars of yesterday. Col'apse and Recovery The ex-Shield player failed ' to materialise, but the exCam bridge lads appeared. Dr. Biggs, with his deceptive swing bowl ing gave the student batsmen many anxious moment, but Paddy Flynn, Gwilym Davies and Dave Funnel relieved the early collapse, and greatly assisted our total. Professor Clark gave an ex cellent display behind the stumps; as a result, our bats men showed a great affinity for the crease.

COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY On Thursday, 31st March , the 31st Annual Com mencement and Ceremony of Conferring Degrees was held at the Canberra University College Hall . This year the ceremony was doubly significant since it was the last such ceremony to be held by the College before its forthcoming amalgamation with the A.N.U., after which degrees will be conferred by the National University instead of by Melbourne. The Chairman of the College introduced this theme, stressing the underlying sadness of the occasion, since there, must be some regret at separation from an institution with which the College has enjoyed such close ties for over thirty years, however much advancement was hoped for under the new order. Occasional Address Sir Garfield Barwick gave the occasional address, and spoke at some length on the benefits to be gained from the consumation o fthe College's approaching marriage with the A.N.U. The union of the Schoo lof General Studies with an Institute of Research would pro...
TOM LEHRER IN CANBERRA LEHRER IN ACTION LEHRER—THE MAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
TOM Teh RE R IN CANBERRA j LEHRER IN ACTION LEHRER — THE MAN Tom Lehrer is a man's man — he is honest, frank, modest and unassuming. One would say that this would make him one of the world's most eligible bachelors — for he is also earning thousands. Furthermore, he is a gradu ate and is very close to obtain ing his Ph.D. No doubt you know all this. Well, in that case here are some, of the things that you didn't know. Lehrer is a brave man; he must be to have allowed three college students to escort him around Canberra and to have consented to see the College. Be Prepared Lehrer is capable of blush ing — in fact, he did. This little incident occurred at the Academy of Science — when the party entered, an official grasped Lehrer firmly by the right hand and said, 'Sorry — I should have used the left hand — I'm the district Scout Commissioner.' And Lehrer only blushed. Impressions The War Memorial im pressed him more than the U.S. Memorial. He was very taken in by the Hall of Mem ory,...
B-IG SP-Y [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
B-IG SP-Y Following the demonstration by students last Tues day several questions remain to be answered. Questions j ? Who inspired the demon stration : ? Why was the Trades Hall represented? ? Who controls the Trades Hall in the A.C.T.? ? Why was the number of every car taking part taken down? ? What was put on the security files? Some of these questions re quire no answer — some do. ! IF security felt it necessary to have car numbers taken then it reflects badly on their organ isation and on their discretion. Surely any shady person taking part should already be on the files.. Secondly the bulk of demon strators were innocent freshers who merely wanted to be in something exciting. None of these had any knowledge of the implications behind such a demonstration. LEAVE THEM ALONE B-IG SP Y !

OPEN LETTER FROM JAPANESE STUDENT LEADER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
OPEN LETTER FROM JAPANESE STUDENT LEADER Hiroshi Kawai, President of the International Students' Association of Japan (l.S.A.) attended the 24th Annual Council Meeting of the National Union of Australian University Students (N.U.A.U.S.) in Hobart from February 15-25 as the first Japanese guest of N.U.A.U.S. He is at present making brief visits to several Australian universities. Kawai-san's attendance at Council was greeted with great pleasure by Australian students because of hi,s engaging per sonality, and also because of the hospitality shown in past years to Australian students visiting Japan.

After the Council Meeting, Kawai-san wrote this letter to Australian students: Exchange and Co-existence 'Japan is an island country about 6,000 miles due north of...
