Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 1. 4th March, 1957
[Report on Trans-Tasman student relations]
Recent relations across the Tasman have been somewhat strained. Australian arrangements for student exchange this summer were not all they might have been. N.Z.U.S.A. Resident Exec. was gravely disturbed over disorganisation and lack of information. At least one student arrived in Sydney shortly before the International Congress to find that, contrary to reports Feceived here, the Congress had been transferred to Melbourne. Student Exchange requires efficient co-operation on the part of both countries to work. It is understood that a strong report will be tabled at the N.Z.U.S.A. Easter Council meeting, to which the N.U.A.U.S. President, Mr. Thomas has been invited. Nor has it helped matters that at the International Students' Conference at Ceylon last year, Australian and N.Z. delegates, although usually co-operating, on this occasion strongly disagreed on a major issue. Salient hopes to publish a complete account of this breakdown of relations in its next issue.
