Three University lecturers - two Australians and one Briton - have been deported from Rhodesia.?
Three University lecturers - two Australians and one Briton - have been deported from Rhodesia. The lecturers, who worked at the multiracial University of Rhodesia, were given seven days to leave the country. Dr. Kenneth Good and Miss. Helen Barnes, both from Melbourne, were handed the deportation orders last week. The orders gave no reasons for the action, other than stating they had been issued under the section of the Immigration Act dealing with "undesirable residents". The third lecturer, Mr. A.J. Dixon declined to comment on the action against him. All three were lecturing in political science at the University.
Dr. Good said he had no regrets about leaving Rhodesia. "I'm pleased to be going," he said. "This is about the best thing the Rhodesian Government could have given me." Dr. Good has worked at the University for the last year. Miss. Barnes, who's been there since March, said she had no misgivings about leaving Rhodesia.
Later, Dr. Good said teaching staff in his department had stopped giving classes after police were called onto the campus and 150 students arrested. More than 100 African students at the University were given jail sentences last month following a riot on the campus on August 7th. Dr. Good insisted that the University of Rhodesia was not a multiracial institution. He said black students and staff did not have an equal role with white people at the University.
