Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 2. 1967.
The Financing of a world student body from suspect sources cannot be tolerated by the New Zealand University Students' Association, president Ross Mountain told Salient.
He was commenting on recent disclosures of massive financial assistance to the International Student Conference from the United States Central Intelligence Agency.
"ISC was born out of necessity to counter the apparently pro-Communist International Union of Students." This is heavily backed by Communist governments.
"Attitudes of ISC do not necessarily coincide with official United States policy." he said.
In spite of the serious charges levelled against it, past valuable work and undoubted potential of ISC should not be disregarded.
IUS will make political capital of the convincing allegations against ISC.
"The international student movement is very much in a state of flux," Mountain concluded.
