A new trade federation was created for education workers, making it the third independent union to be established in Communist Hungary since May, the state news agency MTI reported. It said 195 delegates attended the founding meeting in Budapest on behalf of the 30,000 Hungarian teachers employed in higher education. According to its draft constitution, the new union is to be an independent, democratic organization so it can more effectively represent teaching professionals, the agency said.

Hungary today opened Eastern Europe's first school of Western-style banking, the latest sign of its determination to push toward a freer economy. Prime Minister Miklos Nemeth told the opening ceremony of the school, a joint venture with a French organization, that what he called "distorted ideology" had taken Hungary away from the main lines of development in Europe. "We would now like to come back to the main road," he said.
