What is the National Students association and what
can it mean to Oregon students?
Last spring the Executive Council—now replaced by
the ASUO Senate—voted to join NSA and to send dele

due to financial and other difficulties, neither was done.
Now the Senate is debating the question of joining NSA.

NSA is also the only student member of the National

formally with the State Department and U.S. Office of
Education on matters affecting them.
Its work included a role in helping formulate the
present college student deferment program.
The program of NSA is carried out on three levels
nationally, regionally, and locally, the latter through stu

Life, Educational Problems, and International Affairs.
Program Extended Internationally
NSA has extended its program internationally. Student
leaders from 21 nations met in Stockholm, Sweden, in
December, 1950, to discuss ways of drawing the students

United States at Stockholm.
