The program, however, hns hit a temporary legal snag thnt mny leave veterans paying their own school expenses at the start. Veterans administration officials warned former servicemen heading for school not to expect government checks right away. One VA official said Korean war voterans probably won't set their checks until two months after they enter school. That means the veteran will have to pay his own living expenses plus tuition, books nnd other school expense* until the checks start ur ivlng, including the buck-pay mcnts, The new GI bill provides ninny of the same benefits for veterans urving after outbreak of the Ko- •ean war that were received by Vorld War II veterans under the Id law. The now law states, however, thut no money can be paid or education and on-the-job train C before Aug. 20. The Va has been accepting nppli lotions for training under tho new >!U tor about a week. Veterans who uku advantage ot the program re celve $110 a month if they have to dependents, $139 If they havW onu dependent and $180 if they have more than one dependent. Out of that money, they must pay heir tuition, buy books und supplies, finance all other costs connected with schooling and also pay [heir own living expenses. Under the World War II bill, the government paid the schools directly for tuition, books and other expenses and gave individual veterans subsistence allowances for living costs. In both cases, VA was directed by law to pay the monthly checks •tter «ach month ot schooling had been completed. That means no veteran can begin receiving his checks until he has been in school at least one month. Furthermore, both he and the school must certify to VA' that he 1$ actually attending school, and that may consume more time. Once VA has received the wees- try certification, it can start its machinery rolling to pay the veteran. The law says the agency should try to perform this job within 90 dayc after receiving the certification that the veteran attended classes- 4M*i* SjpmHt* left Tuesday buK Iviroik ; - L, Some electric power plants can ,j-ner»te one kilowatt-hour with less tilftn * pound of coal, while 30 years »go it took three jwunds. ter, Urau Ethel Newman.

The firm, which recently was refused a l.n million dollar rate raise by the Public Service Commission, announced that it planned to put new rates into effect Sept. Warren E. Bray, Bell general manager in Arkansas, said the new rates would average about 60 cents to $1 on home telephones; from $1.75 to $2.25 on business service. He said if these rates had been collected for the past 12 months, the firm would have earned an additional $2.3 million. Several Arkansas cities are expected to oppose the new increase, which Southwestern would put into effect under bond, O. D. Longstreth Jr., Little Rock city attorney said this week that he would contest any proposed hike in telephone rates. Arkansas subscribers now are receiving refund checks from Southwestern, ordered when the firm secured less than a requested $4.6 million. increase in 1950. Several cities contested the increase and succeeded in getting it re duced both by the Public Service Commission and the Arkansas Supreme Court to a final figure of $3,177,000. Bray said the company needed higher, rates to offset rising operational costs including increased wages, taxes, prices and investment per telephone. He said that higher wages represented the company's biggest increase in expenses. He added that present rates were yielding less than 3 '/a per cent of the company's Arkansas investment. The PSC could prevent the new increase from going into effect by refusing to accept the company's bond to guarantee refunds to sub scribers if.the new schedule sub sequently was denied.
