Canberra Good Neighbour (Newspaper) - August 1, 1950, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Part of the picture by Thomas Mckernon when i first came to Bathurst Public school All the girls played with me and / Felt like i be been in this school for Many years and knew gradually / found it easy to Settle in with the help of my Good friends whom i met and liked on my first Day at school All the australian boys have been really Good to me and treat me to these Are just Little snippets a from Many letters from new australian children. They All Tell the same Story. It s the same Story that you will hear too from teachers in schools throughout Australia. It s a simple Story of accept Ance without question of children by children. For children have no reservations about these things. If there s a smile about there will be another one to match it. If there s a Little look of loneliness there la be some boy or girl to replace it with a warm feeling of friendliness of affection. Adults of course Are so much More serious so much More occupied and so afraid of doing the wrong thing. So Many of us stand Back and Tell ourselves that we would like to help this stranger in our midst but perhaps we had better leave it to someone else. But the Little boy or girl says that there Are no strangers. These people come from different lands. Maybe they have the Broad accent of Lancashire 3 0 a displaced persons 42,000 i maltese assisted migrants. 2,400 j Empire and Allied sex j servicemen Eire migrants i too 200 dutch migrants 1,100 j full fare arrivals 25,000 i during the second half of this year Australia will continue to j receive new settlers from the Dis a placed persons Camps of Europe i and will co operate with the International refugee organisation i to wind up its activities before March 31, 1951. It is also hoped to stimulate the flow of full fare dutch migrants by making available reception and holding Centre accommodation. Although the full effect of this new step is not Likely to be Felt until next year it should bring the original target of 10,000 dutch migrants in 1950 within reach. The target for the intake of permanent settlers during 195c remains at 200,000. Certain difficulties both Fores c e n and unforeseen have not yet been of Econie so that on form information available at present there is a possibility that the year s intake while substantially cd cedi n g last years Mav f a n Short slightly of the target As the displaced persons scheme ceases to operate in 1951, other schemes Are now being planned in order to maintain the annual intake of 200,000 permanent settlers increase in the scale of f Ritesh migration will probably by posse a be but this will not be nearly adequate to take the place of the displaced persons scheme. It is Clear therefore that new sources of foreign migration must be tapped. The government is watching with interest the development of International awareness of the necessity for fostering emigration from Over populated european countries. The foreign ministers of great Britain the United states and France in their May conference agreed to set up an expert committee to examine the question. It is understood this committee will meet soon. Until recently the View had always been taken that problems of Over population were the concern solely of the countries in which the Over population occurred. The recognition of the International implications of the problems May Lead to greater encouragement to immigrant receiving countries to increase their intake of migrants and possibly even to actual assistance on an inter governmental level.

Among them is or. Francis Tuza who attends a native boy while or. Iven Champion director of native services watches. Or. Tuza is a hungarian.
