Book Drive for Polish University

Book Drive for Polish University

The Socialist Club will hold a book drive for Warsaw University "early in the first term of next session.

Warsaw University was almost completely destroyed during the war, and the library of the University completely demolished. Dr. Hampton, who has recently returned from UNRRA duty in Poland, told, the Socialist Club last term that the Students at Warsaw were trying to carry on their studies with almost no books. Dr. Zebrowska, Professor of Education at Warsaw, told us when she was here late last year that books in English on all subjects, particularly English literature, Psychology and Education were desperately needed. The University has been starved of new works on these subjects from the day the Germans first entered the country and it will take a considerable time to build up a [unclear: skeleton] library with sufficient numbers of books for all the students to use in their studies.

Students at this college should give as many books as they can spare. Books in English on any University or Training College subject are badly needed. The ISS Committee has given the project its wholehearted support and urges all students to contribute.

There will be a box in the Exec Room in which students who wish to leave books this year may do so.

Students in New Zealand have known nothing of the deprivations of occupation and it is up to us to assist in every possible way. This is one way in which everyone of us can and must help.
