New fork, N.Y. 10001 I was married and the father of two children. Currently I am classified III A. This week I was divorced and my wife was given custody of the children. Would such development have a bearing on my DI A classification? Yes. Selective service law places upon you the responsibility of reporting to your local board In writing any fact that might result in your being placed in a-different classification. This notification must be given to the board within 10 days after the change occurs. I started college in September and was classified in Class III-S but have now discontinued my studies.

SPECIAL PURCHASE 390 regularly $6 ANSWER: You have chosen a very important and essential field. The nation is faced with a severe shortage of medical laboratory personnel and the shortage is becoming more acute each year, However, before you can enroll in this field, you will need a high school diploma. Whether it would be more difficult to get a degree through the High School Equivalency test or through correspondence courses depends greatly upon your own ability. Or you can combine the two. You might take several courses under the Equivalency program, and the rest through correspondence. If, as you say, you are of average or above average intelligence, it should not be too difficult for you to get a high school diploma through correspondence courses. There are many accredited schools that will permit you to gain a diploma through mail credits, but be certain that you enroll in a school that is accredited.

Training for medical technology calls for a minimum of three years of college plus twelve months of clinical training in a hospital laboratory school of medical technology accredited by the Council of Medical Education of the American Medical Association. Most of the 775 AMA-ac-credlted hospital schools, located throughout the country, are affiliated with nearby colleges and universities that count the twelve-month clinical training as the senior year and award a baccalaureate degree upon its completion.

But it is worth all the effort you put into it, since you will have a profession that Is extremely important. You will find that many scholarships and loans are available to you once you enter college and embark on the Medical Technology program.

However, since It Is my desire to teach Home Economics and the University of Pittsburgh does not have this department, I applied and was accepted at the Carnegie-Mellon University for admission to the Home Economics Department. The tuition is much higher there. You can imagine how disappointed I am to find that although I have been accepted, I cannot attend because of the lack of financial support.
