Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 20, No. 11. August 1, 1957
Peter Boag, leader of the N.Z.U.S.A. delegation to the International Student Conference in Nigeria in September, will attend three regional and specialist conferences on his way there.
This was decided by Resident Executive after information was received that enees on his itinerary will be available, finance to include the additional confer The Executives had earlier turned down the proposal on financial grounds.
Bernard Galvin, N.Z.U.S.A's other delegate, hopes to attend an African student seminar in Ghana on his way to Ibadan, Nigeria.
Mr. Hoag's plans are to leave Auckland on July 25 by air for Amsterdam. After representing New Zealand at the World University Service (W.U.S.) conference in Holland he will fly to Helsinki for the Seventh International Student Press Conference—the first at which New Zealand will have been represented.
He will then attend the International Student Seminar in Stockholm, where members of the Asian student leaders' delegation to Europe are expected to take a leading part.
Mr. Boag. who has already established himself in overseas student affairs as a capable representative of New Zealand and an experienced conference man, will undoubtedly gain many contacts in Europe which will stand N.Z.U S A. in good stead at Ibadan. Mr. Galvin's proposed attendance at the Ghana conference is also recognised by N.Z.U.S A. as an important step in the association's policy of trying to fully appreciate the views of all sections of the international student community. Mr. Galvin will take to Ghana a special letter of goodwill from N.Z.U.S.A. marking the inclusion of the new state as a full member of the Commonwealth.
At a special meeting of the Resident Executive in Wellington on July 14. Messrs. Galvin and Boag were briefed on matters on which N.Z.U.S.A. had a stated or general policy. The application of policy motions passed at the Paster Council Meeting in Dunedin was discussed, and interpretation of some was clarified.
