Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 13. September 24, 1947

International Union of Students

International Union of Students

The affiliation fee to IUS has been increased to 3d. per student. OU moved, VUC seconded, that the capitation fee be increased by this amount to allow for the payment of this levy. Although the meeting appeared to be in agreement with this proposal, many delegates wanted more detailed information on how the money is being spent (but they don't read "World Student News") so payment will be deferred pending the receipt of further information on the subject.

Miss Janet Bogle, who represented NZ at the World Student Conference held in Prague last year, was welcomed to the meeting and enlarged on several of the points covered in her report of the Congress, her material being drawn largely from the report of one of the Canadian delegates. Miss Bogle's impression of the Conference was distinctly unfavorable. She made repeated reference to the "Eastern bloc" and to mismanagement of meetings. However, she was able to provide the information that the report of Mr. Arcus of Australia is not satisfactory, as he left the Congress half way through to go ski-ing in Switzerland.

Mr. McLeod (VUC) then read a letter from Mr. John Ziman, NZ delegate to IUS this year, which is printed in this Issue. Miss Bogle's opinion was that Mr. Ziman's political beliefs account for his strong divergence from her own views, Mr. Ziman's report to NZUSA has not yet arrived, but we feel that this will clarify many of the issues discussed.
