A Japanese University lecturer, at present visiting Australia, hopes to initiate regular student exchanges between Australia and Japan. The lecturer, Doctor Kikuo Moriya, said in Brisbane that he planned to charter an aircraft to carry sixty or seventy Japanese students to Australia, and take a similar number back to Japan.
Doctor Moriya is leading a group of eight Japanese students who are touring Australian Universities. The visitors inspected the Geology Museum at the Queensland University at Saint Lucia. Doctor Moriya said that some of the students on the tour had been prepared for a degree of hostility from Australians, but their fears had been dispelled by the warm welcome given them everywhere they went.
The visitors made a close study of the exhibits in the University Museum, and many of them took photographs and film of the hundreds of exhibits. Many of the specimens have been gathered from within Queensland.
Doctor Moriya is to discuss his exchange plan with University Authorities in all three Eastern States. He said he hoped the scheme could be put into effect by early next year.
