ANSWER: You are right In seeking answers to the questions you raise concerning correspondence courses. Unfortunately, many "fly-by-night" mail order schools have been established in order to make money. These should be avoided. I suggest that you attend a correspondence school or college that is accredited, so that the credits you earn are accepted by recognized institutions. You can get a complete listing of the Directory of Accredited Private Home Study Schools (there are about 75 accredited schools) by writing to The National Home Study Council, 1601 18th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. It is free. To get a complete guide to correspondence study in colleges and universities, send for the "Guide to Correspondence Study" at the National University Extension Association, 122 Social Science Building, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minn. The charge for this directory is 50 cents. It contains the name; and addresses of more than 60 colleges and universi- U.S. Office of Education, Washington, D.C, as well as the Veterans Administration, also in Washington, can provide you with more specific details as to the kind and amount of financial aid available to ex-servicemen, as well as to students generally. QUESTION: The senior girl who would have been valedictorian at our high school last year had she not moved away at mid-term, was not asked to join the honor society in our school. The excuse was given that she had not done anything for her school. She had been on the debating team In the ninth grade and is exceptionally good. But, upon hearing the school's statement regarding the girl, he has lost all interest, saying that if the school doesn't think debating is important, why keep on with it? He's a good student, (submitted by Mrs. E. Petersen, Box 231, Whartson, Texas). ANSWER: My advice to your son would be: stay with the debating team. You'll get a lot of personal and even professional value from this activity, even though the school may not think that it is a "major" program. Self-satisfaction is often just as good, if not better, than public STORES IT1 '" MODEL U-207 38" MODEL U-225-2 You pick the speed to suit the job . . . just squeeze the trigger for anything up to 2500 rpm on the V drill, up to 1000 rpfti on the husky V model.

You indicate that you have five years of government help. I assume, then, that you are an ex-serviceman. The Veterans Administration has a generous financial scale for students who attend college on a full time basis, or those who take part-time courses in vocational, business or high schools, as well as correspondence schools. The payments range from $130-to $175-a-month, depending on whether you go full time, and the number of dependents you have. I'm afraid I have discouraging news for you. You will not be able to get a law degree through correspondence credits. At most, the colleges offer from one to two years of credit. You should check with the college or university you have in mind to see how many credits they will accept in your case. Another thing: I don't agree with you that 34 is too late to begin or continue with your educational program. In today's rapidly changing world, it is never too late to learn. QUESTION: My husband is presently serving In Vietnam, but on completion of his tour would like to further his education in the field of law. Since we have two small children we are naturally Interested in any financial help that we can obtain. We would appreciate any information you can give us on scholarships, fellowships and loans, including the G.I. loan, (submitted by Roberta A. Simmons, 115 Hemingway Avenue, East Ha ven , C nn. ) ANSWER: Your husband will be eligible for a government grant through the Vietnam GI Bill, known as the Veterans Readjustment Benefits Act of 1966. Any veteran of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force or Coast Guard who has served and was honorably discharged is eligible if he was continuously on active duty for at least 181 days, ending, after Jan. 31, 1955. A veteran is eligible if he has served less than 181 days, if his active duty was ended by a service-connected disability. Persons still In service, If they have had at least two years active duty, are eligible for help when they leave service. Under the GI bill, benefits will be paid for a maximum of thirty-six months, based on one month of benefits for each month of active duty. The basis for payments is as follows: School full time: $l.'i0-a-month If no dependents, $155-a-month with one dependent, and $175-a-month with two dependents. A veteran who attends school or college part time will be paid proportionately. Various other sources of loans and scholarships are available, either through public or private sources. The By DR. BENJAMIN FINE NEW YORK QIESTION: lam the father of three children and am interested in taking correspondence courses to further my education. What I would like to know is if it's a Rood idea to take a course through the mail. Are these schools worth the money? I don't want to spend two or four years studying at home night after night and only to find out that the school I had chosen was a poorly rated one and that the time I had spent was totally wasted. I have five years in which the government will pay for my schooling, but I don't have the time to go to a regular college. I feel that I would be able to handle the work at home. I would like to take up law. I'm 34 years old and it is pretty late to begin, but I want to get ahead very much, not just for myself but for my family, (submitted by Douglas Thom- JOHN BOYNTON Independent Insurance Agent Says: If you value experience, check into our background.

AP) Scientists plan to send two Mariner spacecraft into orbit around Mars in 1971 to take a close look at , its mysterious surface for an unmanned landing two years later. Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in charge of the flights for the U.S. government, said Wednesday the 1,000-pound Mariners will be launched about a month apart during May and June. Plans call for them to reach Mars after six months, swoop to within 1,000 miles of the surface, collect photographs and data and remain in orbit idefinitely. One Mariner Is to orbit at an angle of about 60 degrees to Mars' equator, scanning 70 per cent of the planet's surface. The second, in a near polar orbit, is to examine the white polar caps and possibly Mars' moons, Phobos and Deimos. Scientists have proposed various theories to account for observed changes in the color of the planet's sulace and lines that some believed were canals. Mariner 4 returned pictures from 6,100 miles away in 1965 that showed a rugged surface, but no canals. Two Manners are to fly within 2,000 miles of Mars next year. An Atlas-Centaur booster will launch the 1971 Mariners. 1133.1661 Wool BLAZER 00 A FAVORITE FASHION VALUE MM SAVE $2'22 SAVE , 4 m . 2 mad r4tte3 - 'mm. till mn.
