Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 12. September 20, 1951

The Idea

The Idea

The idea for bringing two students to New Zealand was first suggested at a Pax Romana Congress at the Hague when students were discussing practical ways of helping people still suffering from the war. It seemed sensible to assist two students and because the immigration scheme helping displaced persons in the first stages of their journey was duo to cease it had to be arranged quickly. Three adults and one child—not many people—but it is something done. A trust has to be raised to ensure that there is money for the four of them while the two men study.
