On N.Z.U.S.A. . .

The recent attempt by the Sydney S.R.C. to disaffiliate from N.U.A.U.S. and the discontent in the University of Queensland at the policy of N.U.A.U.S. tempts us to consider N.Z.U.S.A. with a critical eye. Ian Nicholson, President of N.U.A.U.S., in his report to his Union of the Castor Council mooting made several important criticisms: important because N.Z.U.S.A. should set its own house in order before considering international student politics. On the question of bursaries, it is evident that something it wrong somewhere. N.Z.U.S.A. have taken up a bursary policy without sufficient consideration of the implications of that policy; it would appear that no College is firmly behind the present proposals, and the only effect that the recent submissions have had is to draw the attention of Powers That Be to the unsatisfactory distribution and emolument ceilings of the existing bursaries. The merits and demerits of the present system do not appear to have been considered at any stage by N.Z.U.S.A. We suggest that N.Z.U.S.A. undertake a detailed investigation of the matter and thus they may be at some future date in a position to present a more convincing case to Parliament.
