The National Union of Christian Students was notified by the International Students Congress that at its meeting in Paris it will discuss the exclusion of the Roumanian students federation from the International Students Confederation because of the Transylvanian excesses.

The Roumanian union appealed to the government for assistance and funds to enable it to pay its dues and send a strong delegation to the Congress, but the government refused assistance. It is probable that the Union will send no delegation, but will instruct Roumanian students living in Paris to represent it at the Congress and if the expulsion is unavoidable, they should withdraw before the decision is take, suggesting voluntary retirement on the part of the Roumanian Union.

The expulsion will be urged by the British Students Union, supported by the delegations from Italy, Hungary, Jugoslavia, Switzerland and America while the Roumanian Union will be supported by the representatives of France, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Portugal and Esthonia. If the Roumanian Union is expelled. it is possible that the students federations in Poland and Czechoslovakia will also withdraw from the Confederation.
