Pentony's 'Pinion A FIGHTING FRESHER SPEAKS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
Pentony's | 'Pinion | A FIGHTING FRESHER SPEAKS At a recent General Meeting of the Students' Association, our progressive S.R.C. presented a set of Disciplinary Regulations. These regulations form a I great step forward in the Uni versity. The far-seeing S.R.C., which proposed these regula tions, will be thanked by suc ceeding generations of S.R.C. members. Illegal These progressive regulations provide for two S.R.C. mem bers to be present at any party held in the Common Room. Thus, the lucky people who are allotted this task, will, in effect, be gatecrashing legally. The S.R.C. is to be congratulated on the thoroughness of its measures for getting the mo tion through. The Disciplinary Regulations were not specifi cally mentioned on the notices announcing the General Meet ing and any student who got a copy of the Regulations had difficulty finding the Disciplin ary Regulations, which were sandwiched between the long, verbose, unintelligible 'associa- ted Clubs and Society Regula tio...
A.L.P. [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
A.L.P. At the end of last term the A.L.P. Club of the C.U.C. was formed. A constitution was adopted and office-bearers were elected as follows : ? President, V. B. Gleson. ? Secretary-Treasurer, K. R. Campbell. ? Other Executive member, P. Flynn. The formation of the club has been greeted with much enthusiasm, in varying forms. The club was officially recog nised by the A.S.L.F., when the club members attended the Annual Conference at Newport during the first term vacation. The members proved adept in all activities of the Conference, with the club's delegate fair ing particularly well
N.S.W.G.R. GOOFS AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
N.S.W.G.R. GOOFS AGAIN The 'Woroni' delegation to the Annual General Meeting of A.U.P. were in volved in a railroad coll ision on the return journey to Canberra. Within hailing distance of Queanbeyan railway station the steam passenger train crashed into a stationary goods train. Stock waggons telescoped to gether and obstructed the line. Injured The A.U.P. officer, Elizabeth Reid, was the only passenger seriously injured. Elizabeth was taken to Queanbeyan hos pital suffering from severe con cussion and shock. She has been confined to hospital for some time and her studies have been interrupted for a consider able period. It is felt that this accident was unnecessary and that it only occurred as a result of gross negligence on the part of the New South Wales Govern ment Railways. It is inconceiv able how a train should be al lowed to leave a station when a goods train was on the line only 200 yard^ further on. Delay The train could not proceed to Canberra and passengers had to be co...
GOODBYE GORDON [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
GOODBYE GORDON After many many years the S.R.C. does not have a McCarthy as treasurer. During the past twelve months, part-timer Gordon McCarthy has done more work for the college than half a dozen full-timers put together. Gordon has always been the man to whom people go when they need an efficient organiser. Be it a ball, col lege party or a Lehrer per formance, Gordon was be hind the scenes somewhere. He played his part in clearing up always, so no one could sincerely begrudge him the legitimate spoils. No doubt Gordon must win the prize for the most active part-timer in 1959. He way so active that at times we really did (Wonder whether or not he really did work for Cooper Bros., Way and Hardie. THANK YOU, GORDON.
MONDAY MOVE? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
MONDAY MOVE? The long-awaited Arts Building is finished. This weekend several depart ments are scheduled to move to the new building. The adjoining lecture theatre I will, however, take some time before it is finished. | First Step The completion of this modern building is the first step in the birth of Canberra University. The Departments which will move will be those of Classics, English, Maths, History and Philosophy. Some of these will only be temporary until the Physics building is completed. 1 Now that this building is so close to completion it has taken on a new air from that repre sented in the plans. A modern, businesslike appearance has been achieved rather than the formal cloistered creation that was imaginable. i The ground floor houses five lecture rooms with cloisters outside. The red flagstones of the exterior combine well with the blue tiling of the ground floor walls. The main foyer is the most distinctive feature of the ground floor. It is similar to the foyer in a...
TRAINEES MARTYRED? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
TRAINEES MARTYRED? Teacher Trainees in Canberra are probably among the worst off, financially, in Australia. The following list si/sows clearly our comparative situation in N.S,W. j Living Away Allowance — 1st and 2nd Year j ? NEW ENGLAND UNIVERSITY ? Approx. £21 per month clear j © ARMIDALE TEACHERS' COLLEGE ? £17/2/- per month clear j ? BATHURST TEACHERS' COLLEGE ? £17/2/- per month clear | © WAGGA TEACHERS' COLLEGE ? £17/2/- per month clear 9 NEWCASTLE TEACHERS' COLLEGE ? £11/10/- per month clear I ? CANBERRA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE ? £9/19/- per month clear All students living away from home, whether primary or sec ondary trained, receive the same allowance (£360 per year, but undergraduates also receive a book allowance of £40). But the cost of accommodation var ies from place to place. Resolution Last year the annual confer ence of the N.S.W. Teachers' Federation moved a resolution 'that the Minister of Educa tion be asked to increase the Canberra allowance so as to give Canberra s...
COLLEGE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
COLLEGE DANCE The S.R-C. sub-committee in charge of social functions has organised a dance for June 17. This function will be very informal and is officially intended to take the place of an end-of-term dance (which wasn't held last term because of the revue).
Woroni on Executive [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
Woroni on Executive At the recent Annual Meeting of A.U.P., two editors from provincial Universities were unanimously elected Directors of A.U.P. These positions have for a long time been held by officers of big university papers. Whether this is a sign of lack of further interest from the big universities or not it is hard to decide. At the meeting it was noticed however that the problems of the small newspapers were similar and that big papers had different problems. I However, this is no reason for schism within A.UjP. 'Woroni' The elections returned David Solomon as Secretary, and Ross Pengilley of 'Nucleus' (Armi dale) and George Martin 'Woroni' were elected to the posts of Directors of A.U.P. The secretary was voted an honorarium of £20.
CANBERRA TO SYDNEY BY SCOOTER [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
CANBERRA TO SYDNEY BY SCOOTER i T en students from the University of N.S.W. will, in relays, push a scooter from Canberra to Sydney. This feat, which w ill be all the more creditable when one considers that the scooter is not of the motor driven variety, will begin on Thursday , June 30 and is expected to take two and a half days or less. The students, most of whom are residents of Basser College, will arrive in Canberra (by car ) the day before their marathon begins. They plan to leave early, the next morning, probably from the College. The team's spokesman, Max White, saidthat they were indebted to Cyclops Ltd., who made the stunt possible by donating a scooter. The scooter is of regulation size and so will be similar to those used in the -Annual Canberra Qiieanbeyan Scooter Race.
PROGRESS UP LADDER FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
PROGRESS UP LADDER FOOTBALL This column could well be headed 'Some Win — Still Win ning' as a contrast to the title of this section of the last issue. Drastic It appears that all teams are again playing well and to the University Club this could bring much success year. After a drastic and inevit able reshuffle of the 1st XV the team has played better and as evidence of this we have the 31-17 victory over R.M.C. II on May 28. Experimentation has resulted in a few players be ing successful in unaccustomed positions. In recent weeks the Firsts have beaten Combined Services by 9-5, lost to competition leaders, R.M.C. I by 36-3 (less said the better) and beaten R.M.C. II. Representative matches have restricted the number of com petition matches played and these arc the only results not published in the last issue that I have at the time of writing. Bruce Kent has captained the A.C.T. Representative side in both matches and is the only Uni. player in the team. 'Tich' Archer is back in tr...
REVUE RENEWED [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
REVUE RENEWED Leigh Day's light production of this year's C.U.C. Revue, 1 'Aimed,' is the first real revue work this college has produced for 1 a long time. The main reasons Ltem to be I that the producer has stamped his individuality on each scene of the performance and has kept control over both actors and material. Almost as im portant is the pruning of speak ing parts to a fairly solid nucleus of performers. More over, the length of the show is kept within the desirable compass of two and a half hours, and the jiJ3t.ipositioning of scenes is skilfully handled. Successful The guiding principle of successful revue is to develop continuity by using a small cast of talented actors in the central roles. This induces in the audience both expectation and surprise; by establishing this contact between Individual performers and the audience a certain delight is generated as each new role demonstrates the | performer's versatility. The basis of revue as of all good theatre is strong perso...
HOCKEY: Very Dismal [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 16 June 1960
HOCKEY : 'Very Dismal Three losses and one draw does not show up very well on the score sheet, neither does it normally presage great things for the future, but these things are statistically unreliable. It docs not reveal the im- I provenient that has been going on in recent weeks, it does not do justice to the elfort put in by players and it does not show the hope for the future that is present. Failure On May 7 we played Old Canberrans and lost 6-1. It was our most dismal failure of the season. The forwards were irresolute and the defence was hasty, making the team gen erally incohesive. Uni. were one down within five minutes when Barnard's solo run left everyone gaping. He and centre-forward Singh were to show many of our defensive weaknesses. Two more were scored by half-time leaving us 3-0 down. A reorganisation of the defence began to bring better results and after about 10 minutes of play Tony Voutos made it 3-1. A three goal lapse was to follow and we left the field a well ...
