A.L.P. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
A.L.P. Almost a dozen people people crammed the 'Wo- roni' office on Wednesday to attend the inaugural meeting o£ a socialist club within the College. The immediate purpose of the group is to have a delegate as observer at the annual con ference of student labour move ments which will be held in Sydney during the vacation. Discussion Discussion as to forms of activity which the group may indulge in resulted in animated speeches from several. A temporary committee was appointed under the guiding light of Mr. Austin but no names can be released as several of the committee are public servants. Observer A liberal observer was pre sent but he was not given any ideas which might be helpful to him when* forming a Tory group. It is understood that Woroni intends to give this new group as much publicity as possible.

Vacation... Who? What? Where? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Vacation . . Who? What S- Where? 'I am the happiest corpse in the morgue where I jump from tray to tray.' Believe it or not ROD KNIGHT worked as a Laboratory Assistant in such a place for the greater part of his holidays. (Incidentally, he reports that 'they' were all dead and that 'they' made no complaints). But Rod wasn't the only one to tackle an unfamiliar job. DON BREWSTER cleaned toilets (men's and women's) at Albury Olympic Pool and claims he was made a conven ience of. (Is that so, Don?). Not for 'Elvis' ROBERTS however the plebeian role of cleaner. Officially Geoff became: The Riverina Fire Detection Officer of Burngoogee Fire Tower at Murraguldie State Forest 403 via Tumbarumba. For four days out of every week the black and white cat perched on a forty foot high tower staring into space, in the vain hope, of spotting the forest's greatest enemy — fire. Athletic Feats? Not fatigued, however, by such an exhausting job, Geoff: hurdled a four-foot fence when chased by a bull o...
FRESHETTE REPLIES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
FRESHETTE REPLIES Dear Sir, — As a newcomer to these hallowed halls I shall no doubt be the subject of savage, vicious retribution when I dare to raise my tremu lous vnicp. tn criticise the revered sophomores of the C.U.C. These adult men and women of the world have said many harsh and unjust things about freshers and fresherettes — particularly about their social habits. One of the latest charges levelled against us has been that we do not mix with the senior students. Surely the initiative in making social con tact rests with the senior stu dents as much as it does with the freshers? The mature members of the University must realise that we cannot nerve ourselves to approach the lofty, awe-inspiring sopho mores without encouragement. Despite this, however, a con siderable amount of mixing does occur in the Common Room — when the freshers are given the opportunity. We would probably enter far more into student affairs if given more encouragement by sopho mores. Finally I appeal to ...
The University as a Melting Pot [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
The University as a Melting Pot If a University student is asked what is his purpose in attending his University he will surely say that he intends to gain a degree, but he will almost surely say — probably in the very same breath (lest it be thought that he was not awake at the symposium or similar talk during the early part of his University career), that he also came in order to broaden his outlook upon life and its problems. This reply is something that the new student soon learns is expected of him. I do not suggest that his answer is necessarily insincere for he may have and probably has that though in his mind. That is to say, he thinks to himself, I am not here only to gain a degree but also to broaden my mind, in fact I am broadening my mind merely by being here.' It is his last thought that is the stumbling block upon which the extra-curricular education of the University momentum and direction. Nature Lead Now in the larger universit ies ofAustralia the outlook forming qu...
Alcohol and the University [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
AMcohol an d the University Canberra University College is indeed fortunate in that its small student body does not require rigid enforcement of regulations, applicable to student be haviour. However, our previous good record regarding student demeanour has come close to being broken. Tl.„ ? ? h'„o liac rr*rpnf*l\r X I1C OLUUC11L llCJJlu^JLJLLaLi. had complaints and inquiries from the administration re garding the conduct of students at College functions. The S.R.C. has also been threatened with the withdrawal of permission to consume liquor at college functions. The student body must endeavour at all costs to pre vent interference with student activity. But this is one sphere of student activity which has called for official interference. The amount of liquor consumed both at official and unofficial occasions is appalling. This is magnified when we find freshers play a large part in making the amount of liquor consumed excessive. The University of New England has regulations which ...
CASTIGATION [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
CASTIGATION Dear Sir, — Slack, apathetic, uncouth, juvenile and imma ture self-centred, opinionated; all in all, a pack of creeping cretins. In a recent discussion on the merits and nthfirwisp nf this year's 'freshers,' all these terms were voiced. Personally, I hesitate to cas tigate the 'young 'uns' with such vehemence, but there is one criticism I must make. Last year from the outset, the freshers mixed and con sorted with the senior students, straight away becoming an in tegral part of the overall stu dent body. But this year — HORRORS. T enter the Common Room and what do I see? I see practi cally no mixing in of freshers with older students. The freshers sit with freshers, talk fresher talk to other freshers, and generally carry on with other freshers. This can only be deplored. Of course there are the few exceptions, but the overall situation is, to say the least, alarming. We are as yet, few in numbers — we need a con solidated student body if we are to develop into anything ...
To the Editor ATTACKS ON FRESHERS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
To the Editor ATTACKS ON FRESHERS Dear Sir, — I write this from on top of the telephone booth. Why? — well I have just been sent up the wall by some of the freshers who have squatted in the common room. There is no respect for age shown in the common room. The freshers are uncouth schoolchildren who possess no vestige of discipline whatso ever. Both boys and girls are blatantly unaware of the fact that they are freshers. SHAME! Is this all the New Educa tion can send to the universit ies? Is there no discipline in the schools? I feel that we have placed too much emphasis on the American ideal of freedom. Would it be too much for all freshers just to take a grip of themselves and go easy for a bit — so that I can get down from here. 'HARASSED' Post Script P.S.: I would appreciate it if that habitual fresher flirt, who seems to spend all day lolling on a couch, would not wink at me next time I enter the com mon room.
Before the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of Injustice of the Kalothampian Republic. The People v. Student Editors [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Before the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of Injustice of the Kalofhampian Republic. The People v. Student Editors The unanimous decision of the Military Collegium was read by the President: This is an appeal against the decision of Court Martial No. 1001 wherein the present ap pellants were found guilty and convicted. The applicants in this action are editors of what purports to be a student newspaper called 'Woroni'. They were found guilty of abusing freedom of the Press and wastine time and effort through their production of a so-called student news paper. i Uninformative The members of the Milit ary Collegium have examined an issue of 'Woroni' dated March 18. 1960 and have found dull and uninformative. Not one glimmer of original or sustained thought, imaginative or witty comment lights its pages. The pages of a student newspaper need not necessar ily read like the discourses of a learned society's proceedings, but at very least should pro vide good entertainment. 'Wo- ...
