NEW CLUB FORMED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
NEW CLUB FORMED We announce with pleasure and pride the formation of a new sporting club — the C.U.C. MEN'S BASKET BALL CLUB. Inspired by Barry Swenson from California and Dave Leslie, 15 enthusiasts turned up to the inaugural meeting of Tuesday, April 4. Two Teams Two teams will be entered in the local competition, and judging from the talent seen at practices we will do far from disgrace ourselves. Problem Training facilities are a pro blem. We have the use of Tur ner oval court, but must supplement this with indoor training, as the competition will be played indoors. Over tures have been made to the Grammar School as regards this and the Army has been approached with the 'iew of using the Drill Hall. As a matter of interest, the election of the executive put the following illustrious beings in office: ? President ? Barry Swenson ? Vice-President ... Tony Magi ? Secretary ? David Leslie ? Treasurer Bruce McLaughlin Executive Amidst interjections from Messrs. Nosworthy, Brewster an...
Sports Council [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
Sports Council This year the almost defunct Sports Council of 1959-60 was wound up and a blood transfusion given to it. Fully nineteen people turned up to the annual General Meeting where new office-bearers were elected as follows — ? President ? Gwilym Davies # Vice-President, John Archer ? Secretary Bruce McLaughlin # Treasurer, John Nosworthy Delegates The rest of the Council is composed of delegates from the various affiliated Sports Clubs within the College. Much of the Council's inactivity dur ing 1959 must be laid at the door of the clubs themselves, for at no time did they interest themselves in this policy. A very efficient caretaker com mittee was set up later in the year, which carried out those functions of the Sports Coun cil which were vital, i.e. the allocation of moneys to clubs. Congratulations John Nosworthy and John Archer deserve our congratula tions, but this year things will be different. If clubs omit to send their delegates to Sports Council meetings, the Cou...
RUGBY: Some Win Some Lose [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
RUGBY l»vV'' ? ? Soat&z* SUOSG 'DAVE' Says: Results in the four competition rounds so far played have been divided with the success tending well towards the Uni- | versity teams. The First Grade side after a somewhat spectacu lar start have slumped badly and have won only one of the four competition games. It would be hard to define the cause of this depreciation in the standard of play, but I am of the opinion that far too many of the top players, once they have been selected in the First Grade become apathetic in their attitude towards the game as it should be played — hard, clean and fast. Take A Lesson The First Grade could well take a lesson from the Seconds and the Under 18's. These two sides, particularly the Seconds have been playing with fire and determination, with no tendency towards slovenly play in the latter stages of the match. At this juncture 1 should like to congratulate Captain Bruce Kent, 'Tich' Archer and Joe Kamikamica on their selec tion in the A.C.T. ...
SPORT Mens' Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 11 May 1960
SPOifrt Mens' Hockey Practice commenced shortly after the beginning of term. The teams had lost a num ber of older, more experienced players, however, new players were recruited from local teams, Forestry, etc. The first fixture of the sea son was the Kenna Cup. Two teams entered — the first team reached the quarter finals only to lose 1 - 0. The second team registered a draw and two loses. No Penetrtation The First roster matches commenced a fortnight later. The 'A' Grade team played Waratahs and lost 4-0. It was not at full strength and lacked penetration in the forward line. With Waratahs' half line play ing well up, many passes to the forwards were blocked. When the forwards dropped back to collect the ball they were im mediately at a disadvantage. I No Co-ordination The team lacked co-ordination, which it must have if it is to get anywhere. The best players were: Bronfield. Arnold and Simpson. No Co-ordination Last Saturday a team played Baptist which resulted in a2-all draw. F...

CENSORSHIP — GOOD OR BAD? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
CENSORSHIP- GOOD OR BAD? Recently Archbishop Cough advocated a tightening up of the censoring of literature which was imported into this country. He said that there were quarantine laws which were employed to prevent disease entering the country, and it was even more important to protect the minds of the people. Also, a few weeks ago, following the article in 'he 'Honi Soit't regarding Anzac Day, authorities in the University of Sydney implied that they n'ould endeavour to apply censorship to that newspaper when it was said that every endeavour would he made to ensure that such an article would not he printed again. In other words, there was to be suppression of the p ress, suppression of individual opinion and permission for one group, i.e. the R.S.L., to interfere in the affairs of another group, in fact, permission to run the affairs of that other group. In our modern society we I have given up so many of our | rights and many others have been taken from us, with the result that ...

WORLD STUDENT NEWS Japan [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
WORLD STUDENT NEWS Japan I The long-expected split of the National Students' Union, Zcngakuren, took place at the 15th Extraordinary National Congress of the Zeiigakurcn on the 16th and 17th March in Tokyo. Already at the opening ses sion it came to collisions be tween the ultra-leftist main faction and the opposition min ority which ended with the ex clusion of the stdent represen- I tatives opposing the politics of , the Zengakuren leaders from i the congress. As a re;ult of this over 500 members of the opposition demonstrated on the streets of Tokyo, and held a separate meeting at the Peda gogic University of Tokvo on the second day. The main fac tion. which is so radical that even the Japanese Communist Party is against them and sup ports the opposition, decided to so on strike and to besiege — — ^ - , the Japanese Parliament on the i 26th of April. On the other side the opposition group de clared the congress of the main j faction as illegal and demand- 1 ed the holding of a ne...
Arms Race—No Future [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
Arms Race — ISo Future Recently after the 'aborted' Summit Conference the world was told that the ? major Powers were stepping ?up arms production once more. That is to say more nuclear weapons would be ? made and stockpiled by the leadings Powers , especially Russia and the United States. This is the result of the frustrating of a conference that most certainly would have discussed armament in its proposed programme of relieving world tension. Probably the action uws an inevitable aftermath of the breakdown because of the philosophy which most countries appear to be adopting as regards deterring aggression. Time and time again we have | been told that the producing of nuclear weapons is a de terrent to aggression; that is the only way to ensure that a! third 'World War' does not j occur. Those who read or saw 'On the Beach' will remember the words of the scientist, Julian Osborne. io the effect that the total destruction of human life which was caking 1 place had come about as a re...
UNI. ARMY IN CUBA [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
UNI. ARMY IN CUBA The Federacion Estudiantil Universitaria (F.E.U.) of Cuba has been organising special military training courses to form student brigades which could take an active part in any action undertaken, in case of necessity, to preserve the achievements of the Revolu tion. Dr. Fidel Castro, leader of the Revolution, came per sonally to the University stad ium to attend the first exer cises. Intervention After a brief intervention by F.E.U. 's president on the be ginning of the Revolution and the student participation in it, Dr. Castro explained the posi tion of his Government and denied that militarisation was taking place in the University. 'To-day,' he said, 'the stud ents do not have to fight any more, nor are they attacked by the police because they are with the people and ready to defend their people. If they carry guns, they do so to show that they will never again be victimised by tyrants.' On November 27, 1959, during a special ceremony commemorat ing the martyrs w...
INDIANS Seven Young Ambassadors Marvel At C.U.C. N.U.A.U.S. SENDS SEVEN INDIANS TO SEE US [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
INDIANS Seven Young Ambassadors Marvel At C.U.C. N.U.A.U.S. SENDS SEVEN INDIANS TO SEE US C Last week the College shook off. the sloth of winter holidays to welcome the N.U.A.U.S. sponsored Indian Student Delegation. by the delegation. The Institute | of Anatomy was also of con siderable interest, especially to the leader of the delegation — a medical student. High Commission The delegation were the guests of the Indian High Commissioner for lunch. Here the group met some of the Indian students who are study ing at the A.N.U. The highlight of the day was the reception in ihe Students' Common Room. In an air of informality students and mem bers of the delegation chatted happily together over after noon tea. Also present in the same atmosphere were our local members, Jim and Alan Fraser, members of both the administrative and academic staff and a reporter from the Commonwealth News and In formation Bureau and a mem ber of the Department of Ex ternal Affairs.

BETWEEN LECTURES [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
2^7 W£EaF~ Seen that broken leg — well do you still think Aussie Rule$ a ladies' game. Mike Emmery topped it properly playing foot ball for Ainslie Seconds. i Everybody enjoyed the revue — the cast, the patrons, the hangers-on. But one man didn't — MR. ELLIS of Lumby's. The cast tried his patience to the core with their nightly visits. Thirty students after a revue made quite a crowd — and quite a noise, too. They didn't achieve their greatest ambition which was to have Mr. Ellis do a song and dance on one of the tables. * * * Deft Definitions (from 'Stu- dents' Dictionary') — I Wisdom: Knowing what to do f oresignt: Knowing when to do it.

From Melbourne [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
From Melbourne) An Expatriate Writes The first big difference between the Canberra University College and Melbourne University is, naturally enough , their relative sizes. C.U.C. is at its most active ever because it can boast over 200 full-time students. Melbourne has 12,200 . Take this inflated conglom erate of faculties, and put them down on a flat, featureless cam pus about the size of the new C.U.C. site (or a little smaller), add a confused and crowded array of multi-storey buildings ranging from colonial gothic to ultra-modern and you have Melbourne University. Rising The rapidly rising level of student enrolments in Australia which has been such a blessing to the C.U.C., has been more of a curse to Melbourne. Although the new Monash University is finally under con struction, some ten years too late, it is not going to make much impact on the problem for some years. Meanwhile there are a thousand extra students each year, resulting from the excess of the academic birthrate ov...
The Will of the People [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
The Will of the People The recent Queensland elections reveal a most interest ing anomaly in Australian politics. After the elections the - leader - of the beaten Queensland Labour Party is reported to have said that he was pleased with the result. He ad.ded that if the ?preferential system of voting had been used the A.L.P. would have been annihilated. '/[Quite true. After the last Federal elections Dr. Evatt cordd~have made a similar remark. He could have said that if the first past the post system of voting had been used (_as in Queensland ) the Government pai'ties would ? have been defeated . What does this mean? Roughly it means that the will of the.; people is not being expressed in either one of the systems 'or' in both. Which ? This is the leading question — what system of voting :is going to give the Australian people a parliament of their . own choice? We emphasise here, choice — not chance. ?But perhaps the people of Queensland would have voted differently had the system ...
At Canberra [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
At Canberra | The President Says It was interesting to read the article entitled 'End of the A.N.U.'? if only I because it was written by last year's 'Woroni' editor, Chris Jay, who transferred to Melbourne University this year. The article featured in the I A.U.P. supplement which George Martin enclosed in the most recent issue of 'Woroni.' Sympathy Jay's article heaps loads of sympathy on the present A.N.U., because it has suffered the fate of being involved with students of the C.U.C. and in dicts the government for amal gamating the two institutions. Apart from saying that the C.U.C. would have preferred to become an independent University, Mr. Jay ignores what the merger does mean for the C.U.C. He leaves no doubt, however, that the merger is well nigh a fatal blow to the present A.N.U. and that our arrival on its doorstep must leave us in the position of most unwelcome intruders. To be told through the me dium of our newspaper that we are unwelcome intruders would be hard to u...
THOSE REGULATIONS AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
THOSE REGULATIONS AGAIN One or two things which have happened lately make it seem that most students have forgotten what the Regulations passed by temselves at a General Meeting in first term provide. These regulations are, of course, binding on ihe S.R.C. as much as on anyone, inde pendently of its private wishes in any matter which they affect. Regulation 4 (a) of the Dis ciplinary Regulations provides that— 'No dance, party or similar social function Is o be held in the Students' Common Room or other Students' Asso ciation premises without S.R.C. permission.' Two Members It provides, further, to have two of its members present at the function and that they are in control of the conduct of the function. Regulation 4 (b) says, 'S.R.C. permission to hold a function and its Dower to set a closing time may be exercised by the President.' The Affiliated Societies Regu lations must also be mention ed. With all the good will in the world, the S.R.C. is not empowered to make disburse ment...
Framework [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
Framework The main framework of a national federation was ham mered out. The federation will include various types of An glican organisations in univer sities. It was thought that such an association would, in unit ing these, strengthen the Church generally, and help gain greater respect for 'Ca- tholic theology as held by the /-M ? 1_ _ C T* ? 1 ? I 1 ? I ? ^nurun ol rmgianu, oasisu on the Bible, tradition and rea son.' The relationship of the movement lo the Church — its bishops and synods — was con sidered. The Conference recog nised the responsibility of this university ,'novement to 'pro- mote critical enquiry into the ology and the life of the Church'; this intellectual apos tolate was studied in some detail. — J.B. On inaugural communion of the Anglican Society was cele brated by Bishop Burgmann on June 10.
IN U.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
IN U.S.A. College life is not the worry free, good time it is believed to be by most people, cailms Dr. Melvin L. Selzer, Univer sity of Michigan phychiatrist. Mental He said that few people are aware of mentally disturbing problems from which many rnllp.pp. students suffer. Re sponsible for the public's lack of knowledge on this subject is the myth that everyone in college is having a wonderful time and that campus life is 'a series of parties and games attended by a carefree and irresponsible student body. He commented that because of this myth many of the students' problems are attributed to 'social,' 'academic' and 'fam- ily' factors instead of to symp tons of emotional illness. Of 506 students interviewed at Michigan, 35.4 per cent were deemed to be psychoneurotic, 24.5 per cent had personality disorders, and 21.7 per cent were schizophrenics. — (Daily Pennsylvanian, Philadelphia.
