Refugee Students

Refugee Students.

At the annual general meeting of the N.Z.U.S.A. during Tournament it was decided to establish funds to bring German refugee students to N.Z. to study. All the Colleges were prepared to organise such funds, the V.U.C. Students' Association being prepared to guarantee the money necessary to support a German student. O.U.. C.U.C. and A.U.C. will begin separate funds with the object of obtaining enough to support a student each, but if enough money is not forthcoming the funds will be pooled for the purpose.

The Secretary, Mr. J. B. Aimers, explained that the most suitable courses for such students would be agriculture, medicine and dentistry, because employment could be almost guaranteed at the conclusion of the courses.

Other matters dealt with by the N.Z.U.S.A. will be published later.
