Student Group Cancels Indonesia Meeting when Israelis Are Barred

The World University Service, an international student welfare organization which assists needy students and universities, has cancelled plans to hold its annual meeting in Indonesia because the government of that country has refused to grant visas to two Israeli delegates, the offices of WUS revealed here today.

Confirmation was received yesterday from the organization’s branch in Indonesia that the Israelis would not be admitted. The meeting was scheduled to be held near Jakarta July 25. So far the organization has made no decision on an alternate site.
