MOST of the universities of Great Britain and some overseas were represented among the 130 students who last week attended a Summer School at Shanklin, Isle of Wight, for representatives of Catholic student organisations in the universities.
A decision was taken to alter the structure of the Union of Catholic Students by placing a fully representative assembly at the centre of its government in place of an AGM and an elective council of 12 people.
The aim is " to link Catholic students into a stronger, more vital body, sensitive to national and local movements, which can take a new offensive to bring Christ into the University, the centre of national thought."
The theme "Catholics and Protestants" was studied in a series of lectures and discussions in which Fr. Henry St. John, 0.P., Fr. Kenneth Allan of the Catholic Enquiry Centre, Mr. Edmund Rich a former Anglican Canon, and Dr. Scarisbrick, assistant lecturer in history at Queen Mary College, London, took part.
