Dear Sir,—How long must we permit Asian and Indian students to roam around this university ? Certainly, there is considerable apathy on the part of the New Zealand Government as regards this situation, as these students are actually encouraged to come to this country and attend a New Zealand university. With this position one is forced to wonder why governmental apathy should be readily inculcated in the student body which seems quite prepared to tolerate the inclusion of Asian and Indian students into university sports, their sharing of tables with white students both in the library and the cafe, their perpetual chattering in languages that in no way resemble English. I have attended Victoria for three and a half years, and during this time have noticed that there has been little open defiance against these Asian and Indian students whose arrogance has increased accordingly. The time has now come when every serious-minded white student must openly declare his views, hitherto held privately, as to the utter exclusion or even segregation of these above-mentioned alien students.

Your sincerely, P. J. Kelly.
