Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington. Vol. 22, No. 6. Wednesday, June 24, 1959



Austria's students are decided to go out on a general strike, if the government's endowments to the universities are as poor in the future as they have been until now. At the Second Austrian Student Congress, held May 12-15 in Vienna, they demanded considerable increases in university funds, a law for financial assistance to students and the creation of legal bases for student medical care. In a declaration they called the situation at Austrian universities catastrophic. About 16,000 places in student homes are needed for students whose residence is not in the university city, in order to free them of the burden of high rents, which is unbearable over a long period. In all Austria 3,000 places in student homes are available.—(Special report).
