BEARDS! BEARDS! [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
BEARDS! BEARDS! A long cherished method of asserting individuality is the .sporting of a heard. For, in deed, it takes a deal of self confidence and composure to undertake the ordeal of walk ing round with your chin look ing rather like a burnt-out field of corn, while the future feature of distinction is in gestation. Of course during the first week or so the excuse that you have no razor blades, etc., will usually suffice to dis pell suspicion. As time passes, however, this sort of evasion of the (ruth will not suffice. Mocking, or horrified fingers, now more than suspicious, point at you from all direc tions. Ah! but bv that time self assurance must surely have come to (he bearded sage's aid. Different Types Of course, there are different types of beards, which indicate. I suppose, that there are dif ferent types of person. Take. 1 for instance, that fellow over there with the great bushy brush on his face. Not only upon his chin, but under it and up the side of his face also. Pe...
Suud Afrika [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
Suud Aiirika In this the enlightened age of humanity, the free world is shackled with the shame of South Africa. ». .iw wiuuu) uuivnuiy U1 nearly 200 citizens is some thing which cannot be forgot ten. The free world cannot blame the bloodbath of Buda pest on the Hungarians while we tolerate this South African situation. The government and people of South Africa stand con demned. They have no vin dication — murder is not stong enough to describe this their aetrois. Condemnation Discrimination and apartheid are to be condemned. Murder, abhorrent as it is, must be payed for. Revolution and the ultimate destruction of the apartheid system must surely be the outcome. With the United Nations turning a blind eye, civil war is the only solution. May the free world not be perturbed, as South Africa can have little claim to being a member.

VIEWS ON AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
VIEWS ON AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE By Barry Swenson I was asked to give my views on my reactions to the meeting in Parliament House and Prime Minister Menzies' speech on March 24. The best way to see a change is to compare things with what you are used to; California Legislature in the United States. One Visit Not Enough Although I have had some experience in seeing legislation in action at home, I really don't have the background I would like to have in order to make an accurate comparison. I would also have to make more than one visit to the Parliament House in order to justify the conclusions which I have made. I have spent most of my time studying business administration and economics and now regret somewhat my deliberate avoidance of the field of political science. Startled The most outstanding feature of the session of Parliament was that during Prime Minister Menzies' speech, there seemed to be a lack of reverence on the part of the members, especially the party in o...
'O VOOSS' [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 8 April 1960
0 VOOSS' This is another among the many articles already written on Patrick! White's 'Voss'. Since there has been so irnich controversy over this work, however, further discussion is still worthwhile if it does represent a step forward in Aus tralia's literary development. Superficially the figure of Voss recalls that of Leichhardt. But Voss represents all ex plorers of the unknown and the infinite. Here the theme is self-discovery, or the struggle in the human soul between the strengths and weaknesses of the human character in its attempt to reach the fullest realisation o fits being. This involves a struggle with the powers of darkness, if these are conceiveed as the baser in stincts of human nature. Laura says of Voss after his death: 'I am convinced that Vosss ha din him a little of Christ, like other men. If he was composed of evil along with the good, he struggled with that evil. And failed.' The final judgment, however, is the realisation o f the poet, Le Mesurier. that: 'The...
APARTHEID - DEBATED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
APARTHEID - DEBATED I The newly resurrected C.U.C. Debating Society staged I its first debate at lunch-time on 5th April. I The topic was Apartheid, which, although it has been done many times, I was felt to be very apt considering the great interest in Sout hAfrica's racial policy I ?following the recent violent unrest in that country. The debates full title was 'The I Policy of Apartheid as Adopted by the Government of South Africa is I Unjustifiable.' I Miss Maher was the first to put forward the case for the Government, standing up in a burst of applause and comment quickly quelled by a stern Gwilym Davies. Miss Maher wandered what qualified the Whites to believe In their 'Aristocracy of skin' before going on to describe, in a rather meandering fashion, the historical background of Negro-White relations. She spoke of the Negroes move from the planations to the cit ies, where they learnt -hat 'all men are equal' and realised that 'Apartheid denied this equality.' 'The Constitutio...

REFRESHER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
REFRESHER i For some time two small notices announcing the two motions to he put before the General Meeting of the S.A. on Monday night, 11th April, had resided on the notice-boards in the Com mon Room . and on the 'Students' Notice Board' on the outside of the Mall. These discreet notices were noticed by some and even road by a few students. That portion of the latter group who, skilful and patient en ough to read the extremely small scrawl at the bottom of this 'notice' discovered that some tyrannical Sopho mor intended to move that 'Freshers be prohibited from Liquor.' Unaware Until Thursday the 7th, the vast majority of Freshers were unaware of this move to re strict their- freedom. Then at about 2 p.m. on that day no tices appeared on the two main boards and on the door of the library calling the attention of the Freshers to the impending attack. The enemy were not long in striking back. By after noon tea time notices scrawled with S.R.C. equipment and reading 'Ban the Freshers...

AT NARELLAN BAD LANGUAGE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
AT NARELLAN BAD LANGUAGE Dear Sir, Have you ever been called a 'shower'? A certain uncouth hostel manager produced this choice bit of vulgar R.A.F. slang in berating a group of innocent party goers returning home at 1.30 a.m. a few nights ago. No Worse The words preceding and following this pretty piece of invective were, to say the least, FOUL! Never before have I heard worse! From a man in the said gentleman's position, this sort of behaviour cannot be condoned. The fact that the recipients of this abuse were obviously innocent of the charges levelled at them made no difference. Big-Bop just had to sling off j his foul mouth! I In Bed? And what is more, we object ' 5 to having our doors unlocked T$ ' at 3 a.m. and our rooms peered tfcft i j into. What the hell does he expect (or hope) to find? A couple in bed? By the way! What in crea tion is a shower? We arn't sure, but coming from whom it did, it must be an abusive and off -colour bit of villifica tion. 'INCENSED.'

ANZAC FUSS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
ANZAC FUSS An article printed in 'Honi Soit'' on the second of April, entitled 'The Spirit of Anzac,' has drawn condemnation from ex-servicemen leaders, the Sydney press and Sydney University officials. Brigadier Fewtrell, an exe tive member of the R.S.L., sa!d 'These students need to be taught a lesson.' Some thing will be done about it at ths next meeting of the R.S.L. State Executive.' He felt that University students were not in any position to gauge what the spirit of Anzac meant. Scum Mr. S. R. Lewis, State Secre tary of the R.S.L. said that Sydney University appears to contain 'the scum of our so called Australian intelligent sia.' With 'Truth' The 'Daily Mirror,' which is associated with 'Truth' newspapers in other States, covered half its front page and four columns on another page with an article headed 'Sneer for Anzac Day.' and described the article in 'Honi Soit' as a 'shocking and unjustified at tack' on Anzac Day.' Much of the space taken up by the 'Daily Mirror' arti...

Obituary CARYL CHESSMAN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
I Obituary I CARYL CHESSMAN Convict Chessman died quietly during the night of 3rd May. Having lingered in San Quentin for twelve years his passing will be no doubt marked by many sighs of relief. This man has, however, in his last years, been a beacon to many. Despite the pall of doom hanging over him he has striven unrelentingly to turn the mercy of a Nation, it not the world, to his cause. Despite the fact that he knew that he must die, Chessman came through his twelve years of anxiety with flying colours. His sojourn in San Quentin must, have been more torturous than many spent by others in Belsen under the Nazis. However, he had his reward by becoming the most well-known convict in the world. But . . . even at the age of chivalry is over, crimes against womanhood cannot be condoned. We feel that his execution should have been conducted twelve years ago. The U.S. cannot be proud of him, they can be ieven less proud of the legal system which let him linger in torment so long.
