Resident executive is to investigate the possibility of chartering an aeroplane for exchange of students between here and Australia over the long vacation. The exchange system, where by students cross the Tasman every Christmas and take jobs found for them by the local students' organisations is now quite popular. The meeting unanimously approved the new idea. The N.U.A.U.S. observer, Mr. Ian Nicholson, reported that Australia was very keen on the ache me and that the chances of employment for students going to Australia were good, and getting better. If the plan could be worked, the cost to each student would be around £5 return air fare to Australia and back, some £14 loss than the cheapest boat fare. It was further suggested by Mr. Nicholson that If enough students participated a Joint congress could be held on one side of the Tasman before the aircraft returned. Ideas could then be freely exchanged.
