ANNUAL MEETING Angry Clashes [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
ANNUAL MEETING Angry Clashes The annual General Meeting held last week, was a disgusting example of mass hysteria. The president obviously lacked con trol and unauthorised persons voted 011 important motions. Angry exchanges took place across the floor and at times the scene resembled a bullfight rather than a meeting. Over seventy rowdy people heard the Returning Officer de clare the poll of (he annual elections. Interjections Amidst vociferous interjec tions the declaration showed that Mary Eccles, Colin Mac kerras and Tony May were elected for Arts. John Maurer, John Newman and 'Paddy' FIyn«i were declared elected for Economics. Following this the elections for vice-president and for the second Law representative were held. The Returning Officer and Michael Austin were nominat ed and the division resulted in Don Brewster scoring a nar row victory. Vice-President The retiring president con vincingly defeated 'Paddy' Flynn in the election for vicc president.

This fact has not daunted him from mak ing his presence felt. Being a fuil-timer and living at Lennox, he feels that he is in a position to be a true representative, particularly of the fresher sec tion of the College. Attractive John is tall and attractive to females (freshers in particular). We hope he can maintain a steady demeanour despite his increased prestige. We forecast a bright future for him. VIC GLEESON Vic Gleeson is one of the two Science students who were elected unopposed to this year's S.R.C. He is one of the busy men around the College and will no doubt be made busier when the S.R.C. realises that he is a willing horse. Vic has been a Patents Office cadet for some years now and has tasted uni. life...
Blue Mood [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Blue Mood Why the hell are all the doors around the College being painted that horrible shade of BLUE? Looking at them we were reminded of an anaemic bluebottle suffer ing from an Ella Fitzgerald complex. We can only suggest that the colour consultant (better 'in- sultant') must have gained his inspiration (ugh-) from one of the more off colour jokes float ing around the College. Fools The Common Room doors would have been far better done a bright red, with the words 'Fools rush in where angels fear to tread' inscribed thereon in a subtle shade of black. May we also suggest that a far more judicious choice of colour could have been made for lecture room doors, had they been painted in violent tones, such as purple, and in scribed 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here.' Social Club Half the library door, on the other hand, could remain blue to cater for the mood of some who pass through there. But this should only be condoned if, on the other half of the door, there was affixed a large...
Indian Student Delegation [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Indian Student Delegation I his year the National Union of Australian University Students has invited a delegation of Indian Students to visit Australia, the purpose being to create good will among university students internationally and to help Indian students to find out something about University life here. This of course is not the first time we have had a delegation of students from abroad , for last year a group came from Indonesia. The delegation is going to arrive in Australia on the 4th May and leave late in June. They are spending a couple of days in Canberra from 1st June -3rd June. This is unfortunately during vacation, but the S.R.C. is going to organise a programme to entertain them and show them Canberra.
C.U.D.S. DEAD? Annual General Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
C.U.D.S. DEAD? Annual General Meeting The A.G.M., of C.U.D.S., was held in the Common Room. Ron Fraser, as retiring president, presented an extremely comprehensive re port covering the year's activities (or lack thereof). One Act During the year the Society plans to enter a one-act play in the National Eisteddfod; re hearsals are now under way, with Mai acting as producer. If all goes well, a play will be entered in the Inter-Varsity Drama Festival to be held in Adelaide during the August Vac. Busy As well, at least one play reading will be held per term. If these intentions are fulfilled, a busy year lies ahead for us. But it will be well worthwhile in furthering the interest of students of this College in drama.
Law Society Meets [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Law Society Meets The Law Society wears a somewhat enigmatic mask hh Is year. The quality of its executive and the nature of its place in University affairs are as yet untested. Moreover it is no longer unique: the scientists are in the course of 'rounding a faculty society, and I should not be surprised if the Arts Society were to be revived: So it was of considerable interest to attend the A.G.M. of the lawyers on Wednesday, 6th April. Regrettably, it was somewhat depressing qua con duct. The perennial wrangling over the constitutional provi sions as to who could vote wasted the time of the meeting lor one and a half hours. When it was ascertained that by the constitution only one person present was entitled to vote, the president, Jack Knight, gave the only possible ruling , to the effect that any Law stud ent present could vote, and after dissents and threatened dissents, his opinion prevailed. Indeed his handling of the meeting was extremely impres sive. Implicit in the contest...
Firebrand [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Firebrand Dear Martin, Perhaps I am a 'firebrand,' in deed, perhaps I have even been cursed with an aptitude to har bour 'strong feelings' on cer tain subjects. Obviously at the Canberra University College this kind of activity, to use the idiom of the psuedos, is quite Non-U. Apparently to have an opin ion about anything is not only foolish, but socially dangerous.
W.U.S. WEEK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
W.U.S. WEEK Early next term it is planned to set aside a special week for W.U.S. We want to run lunch hour functions — some for publicity, such as screening of Charlie Chaplin films and also others for fund-raising, such as a Beautiful (male) Legs Com petition or Historic Pairs Com petition, where the entrants pay a penny to enter and the spec tators pay a penny to vote. Funds Any other methods of 'mild extortion' of funds are legal and all ideas will be welcomed. (Some of the activities of other Universities in the past have included Mr. University Com petitions, picketing toilets and charging admission, auctioning women students or lost pro perty). Another proposal has been to sell hot soup in the Common Room at six o'clock in winter, the proceeds of which will go to W.U.S. There will also be straight collections organised, for which many col lectors will be needed, so if you have no new ideas, there will be a lot you can do to help.

Negative Philosophy [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Negative Philosophy Most of (but I am glad to say not all) the freshers who come to this College are fine products of the negative philo sophy of an education system which is rapidly making 'democracy' synonymous with 'mediocrity.' A lay mind is far worse than a closed one. W. S. Gilbert summed it up' pretty well in a few lines of 'Patience' — 'If this young man doesn't open his mouth, Then nothing wrong, saith he — Why what a most infallibly right young man This quiet young man must be!' So there! REECE.
EDITORIAL Student Polities [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
EDITORIAL Stutient I*&S£tics A new S.R.C. has taken office. This should he an important event in the university year. Few evidently think it is. Student interest in their own affairs is at a low ebb. Nominations were insufficient. Elections were not necessary for finding a President or for faculty repre sentative for non-facultv students. This in itself is ? -11: ? cippaiiing. i However, the gravity of student apathy becomes more apparent if we examine the elections for Arts and Economics facutlv representatives. These two faculties are the largest in the College — over six hundred students were entitled to vote for their faculties and only 125 voted. A very poor percentage indeed. * * * * Having been elected the new council must go about its business. What is its business? The most obvious job that the council is faced with is that of adopting a policy to be followed in dealing with administration. This year there will be many occa sions when the council will be consulted b...

Protest [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
I Protest To the Editor, I am writing this letter in protest against the size of the slips of paper to be found on top of the catalogues in the reference room. I find that it takes approximately fifty of these slipes for the notes of one lecture. This is extremely inconvenient. Yours. MAC.

TO THE EDITOR Why? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
TO THE EDITOR Why? Dear Sir, Why is it that no one with any intelligence show ed any interest in the re cent elections? It seems to be a great shame indeed that the only keen peo ple are freshers. Of these -he egotistic individuals with hides of the calibre of those pos sessed by hypopotami were in the fore. If progressive students do not take part in student politics to a greater degree, then they are leaving the way open for fresher ostentation to make its mark on informed minds. I implore the forces of re action to begin lest we let meg lomania ride slipshod over student apathy. WOULD-BE STATISTICIAN.
