The Student World

The Student World

Denmark: Recently the Government of Denmark announced a grant of 1,300,000 kroner over (£50,000) to set up a Danish peace corps, starting with 30 young volunteers to help in health and education work in the emergent nations.

Ussr: An account in the Soviet literary magazine Literaturnaya Gazeta of how neighbours of two Leningrad "beatniks" urged the authorities to send these neighbourhood disgraces to Siberia evoked an indignant protest from a Siberian writer. In a recent issue of the same magazine, V. Marina expressed the anger of inhabitants of Siberia over the fact that other-regions of the Soviet Union want to convert this splendid land into "a sort of deportation region for all kinds of loafers." If they want to "get rid of their undesirable elements, they should find other destinations for them," the writer advised.

Ireland: Four Irish students from University College, Galway, recently walked 150 miles—from Belfast, in the north of Ireland, through Dublin to Galway in the west—pushing a large dustbin in which they collected £300 for the Freedom from Hunger Campaign. The students spent seven days on the journey and in towns and villages on the way they were given free meals and lodging.
