Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 2. 1967.
The Student Travel Bureau lost money over the last year.
The expense of maintaining a Travel Director and the outlay on Travel Officers in universities account for the loss.
To cut expenditure the Bureau will no longer organise travel within New Zealand.
More overseas trips are planned. Trips to Australia and New Caledonia will be offered for the first time in May.
Intentions are to concentrate on Australia, South-east Asia and the Pacific area. But schemes to the United States and Europe are being planned. It is hoped the "cultural revolution" will subside sufficiently to permit another China trip this year.
The influence of students returning form abroad should intensify interest. Bureau travel is cheap and ideal for students free of family or career obligations.
