The success of this seventh war loan will furnish needed dollars to allay the suffer ings of countless war victims, feed and clothe the hungry, aid In hous ing the homeless, and enable many of our veterans to return to school. Their education Is already costing approximately $20,000,000 a year. This figure is based on the num ber now taking advantage of the educational benefits of the GI Bill of Rights. Hundreds of veterans are being discharged dally—Jobs are not ao plentiful sh previously— and we may expect many of these veterana to return to school, ac cording to the Veterans’ Adminis tration. For each year a veteran spends in school, the estimated cost, ex clusive of administrative expense, will average around SI,OOO per year. The total cost* will be great, but not as great as the debt we owe these ex-fightlng men. You as a citizen can help send these veterans back to school un der the la*w your Congress voted back in 1944. Every dollar you lend the government In the Vic tory will work toward the end of making these heroes of a thousand conflicts self-sustaining, equipped to meet the problems of life In the years to come. The law applies to all veterans discharged under conditions other than dishonorable, and so long as veterans are eligible, there is no control exercised over their choice of school or course. The only re quirement of the Veterans’ Admin istration Is that the school be rec ognized by the state In which It operates, and that the veteran be .acceptable by the school as to edu cational requirements.' Some con ditions for education are different under this law. however, than the law which provides for the rehab ilitation of disabled veterans. The main limitation is that men over 25 years of age at the time of their entrance into service must demon strate that their education was interfered with. Interrupted or impeded by such entry Into serv ice. while a man under 25 need not demonstrate this fact. To be eligible for education or training under the GI Bill, a vet eran must meet the following re quirements: He must have served In the ac tive military or naval service on or after September 16. 1940, and prior to the termination of the present war; Must have served 90 days or more, or if less than 90 days, must have been discharged for disability Incurred in or aggravated by serv ice; and Must have been discharged or released from the service under conditions other than dishonorably. Any man who meets these simple conditions is eligible for one year of education or training at an ap proved educational institution or industrial establishment with his necessary expenses met in part or in full by the government. This education or training may be what Is designated in the law as of “re fresher or retraining type.” o Bear* to Meet J&ckrabbits Here On November 30 Coolidge Bears will meet the Mesa Jackrabbits, one of the lead ing class A teams In the state, on Friday, November 30. ’ An exciting game Is expected to develop •less of the outcome.
