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



In protest against next year's fee increases, the Student Association of Hebrew University called a strike and demonstration at the end of March. A delegation of students was received by the Minister of Education, who offered to study any suggestions for improving the system of providing loans to deserving students. The students told the Minister that the increased fees were above the means of the majority of the students and that the proposal that students should repay the loans from their salaries after graduation would prove very difficult—(Jerusalem Post/Information d'Israel, Tel-Aviv.)

On March 18, two students from Haifa Technical Institute were expelled for cheating on semester exams. After trying unsuccessfully to get a reversal of this decision, which they considered too harsh, the student body called a strike. School authorities then met on April 15 to discuss the matter again, but decided to uphold the decision for expulsion. The student body announced that in consequence, they would not call off their strike.—(Jedioth Chadashoth, Tel Aviv.)
