... a leftist tradition

The tranquility and seeming discipline of our colleges as compared with French universities quite impressed him. (He'hadn't seen Procesh. at this point.) Students in France were nearer to the centres of historical crisis and this was perhaps the reason. France's political life is more active than New Zealand's; in fact, politics practically spring from the university. In New Zealand students take an active interest in political thought, but due to the fact that a big percentage of students in France emerge straight from Varsity into political life (into ministries, etc.), politics play a more vital part in the average French student's activities.
