ISS Reports Progress and Plans for Next Session

ISS Reports Progress and Plans for Next Session

Recent Collection

Through the recent drive for donations for World Student Relief, the sum of £29/13/7 was collected. We thank the 2,000 students for their generosity in subscribing so liberally to this appeal and hope that the average donation of 3d. per student will leave no one bankrupt for the remainder of the year.

German Re-education

To assist the Education Branch of the Military Government in the British zone of occupation in Germany, school supplies such as pencils, nibs, rubbers and pens are urgently needed. The Chief Education Officer has asked for all the assistance that can be given. Will you help by placing alt the material you can spare in the box by the stairs.

Food Parcels

ISS appeals for college help. Names and addresses of overseas students are available from ISS committee. We suggest that vital College clubs consider supporting this effort by making themselves responsible for regular sending of parcels.

Book Drive

Early in the 1948 session, the Socialist Club is organising an appeal for text books for Polish students. ISS Committee urges full support for this venture.


Mr. James Bertram of the English Department has accepted the position of President of the ISS Committee. Students will recall that Sir Thomas Hunter is Patron.

Work Days, 1948

These will be held on Saturdays March 20 and April 3. Club officials please avoid events on these days so that maximum student labour will be available to meet the demands of the public.

Students please keep at least one of these days free. Make a note of them now. No Excuses in 1948.

J. D. Craig,

Secretary. For the VUC ISS Committee.
